Weird title, but let me explain (:
Out of the 4 language skills, I develop the fastest in reading > writing > listening > speaking. I’m not the kind that pay much attention to song lyrics and I usually multi-task while listening to songs. Even for English/Chinese songs, I can remain relatively deaf to lyrics of songs that aren’t on my regular playlist. I’m always amazed by my friends who managed to hear the background song playing in some shop/restaurant and comment ‘this songs has nice lyrics.’ and proceeds to read out the lyrics.
Back to my point, I am suddenly very much tuned in to Korean lyrics. Everything becomes sharper and I am able to comprehend the song lyrics in addition to appreciating the tune. And it seems very natural. I hadn’t really realise about the sharpening of my urm instinct (?) until I recently listened to this song again. It was one of my weird fetish songs last year (i think) and I hadn’t listen to it in a long while. I remembered thinking that everything was sooo fast and I can only catch bits and pieces of the lyrics. But just a few days back, I listened to it again and I realised I can understand the song with ease (:
p.s. The song is really interesting, but not sure if it will fit everyone’s taste. 😀
I’m making good enough progress in Japanese too. I think my 4 language skills in Japanese will develop in the same order too! ^^
