Just checked my youtube channel and saw that someone has left me a comment. He mentioned in the comment that he’s learning Korean so, I went to check out his channel.
The title of his video is so long that it’s not even shown in its entirety. So here’s my reactions while watching his 16 mins video.
0:00: ooo this is cool
o:10: 7 languages~ (realization hasn’t settle in)
0:30: this is interesting 😀 *think to self* ahh so he’s going to be speaking Chinese, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean~ mmm
2:00: wow. Cantonese tones are so interesting. I only know har gao. ㅠㅠ
4:00: this is so cool. I can read the subs and hear him speak in Japanese!
6:00: WAIT. *hovers mouse over title* OMG. FRENCH, MALAY, TURKISH????!!!
*cues 멘붕 state*
6:50: omg. He’s so good for someone who has been learning only for a few months.
8:00: jaw drop
9:00: jaw drop lower
by 10:00: totally impressed.
And you know what I’m more amazed about? It’s that he actually can write in those languages!!!!!!!!
Most polyglots or “polyglots” can say things, but they can’t write in that language. So I’m doubly impressed. Especially for Russian and Turkish. In the video, he said that he just learnt Turkish ‘recently’. And went on to say ‘two, three days’. IMPRESSED.
And unlike lazy people like me, he actually spends time to put in subs for the video. Really really appreciate that. Those who have experience in making videos will know that subs are so annoying to make, particularly if you are doing a video impromptu. It’s like having to transcribe yourself wtf. And even if it’s scripted, time is need to make the script and turn it into subs okay.
I am inspired to work harder and put subs in my videos too ㅠㅠ
Go subscribe to his channel and hopefully he will make more language videos soon!!!
p.s. Be nice and go read my translations for Kang Dong Won’s HIGH CUT interview in the previous 2 posts k!! 😀 Really really have a lot of respect for him!
