Have you ever read a foreign language, but you cannot understand because you are not familiar with it? Many times, I was wondering on YouTube to watch random videos and when I encountered Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, and Thai language. Even if I want to read the caption, but I cannot. Also, I cannot understand what they are speaking too.
When we encountered a foreign language like Korean? I know Korean dramas are really trendy right now. From watching the K-dramas, we learned new words and I, myself, was also learning from it. The basic greetings like Annyeong or hello/hi. Is it right? Or I misunderstood the Korean translation of hi? I think there are ways of saying hi in Korean depending on who you are addressing.
My teacher told me in History that learning a foreign language can sometimes save us or save others. Not save the lives, but save the time for looking direction, places and tours. In Manila, there are many foreigners from different countries. If you encountered one and ask you about where should he takes a bus, and you cannot speak English. Then, how could you answer him?
Ignoring a tourist like him will have the impression that Filipinos are not friendly and amiable. So, to answer the foreign, you should have known how to speak English. It is okay if you are not fluent, but you have the courage and guts to speak at least the basic. In that way, the foreigner can get a good answer from you. You don't know, he might treat you afterwards.
I am still young and I do not have broad interest of learning foreign language. The two languages I know of right now is Tagalog and English. I do not speak other languages except some greetings from Korean, Japanese and Spanish. When you are watching anime, then you can learn a lot of Japanese. Sometimes, I prefer not to download a video with subtitle because I can understand it.
Of course, I can speak well the my mother tongue which is Tagalog, but I cannot speak Tagalog straightly. I think there is no Filipino who can speak Tagalog so fluently without using English as a side words. I can also speak English, but not fluently. I am still loading and thinking sometimes the translation of Filipino to English words.
Learning new language is very challenging because you have no idea how to pronounce the word and what are the constructions of their sentences. When I study Spanish because I watched the series The Money Heist, I cannot understand it unless I read the subtitle at the lower part of the video. I think learning Spanish became easy because Tagalog and Spanish have similarities.
During the learning period, I think it's important if we can chat or talk someone who speaks Spanish fluently. In that way, you can see the progress of your learning and you can apply what you understand. It will be hard, but when you give it a shot to learn and talk in the particular language you learn, then it is okay. You have a good opportunity when you go to countries who speaks Spanish.
The new language I would want to learn is French because I would love to go to France. French is very complicated language because of their accent. It is noticeable when you are just learning to speak French because your pronunciation is not on point.
I wanted to learn a foreign language because it has some benefits in the long run. There are plenty of ways on how we can learn. YouTube offered a lot of channels that we can watch how to speak, write, and create a sentence. I think that is a wide benefits of watching YouTube. Then, you can download books online for free so that you can enhance your understanding.
