i really really wanna learn languages, since school lagi.
sebab i really really like traveling and i've dreamt of traveling to countries where everything is foreign to me; culture, language, weather, religion, and more.
a hill in Malaysia, is different than a hill in Scotland.
the smell of a rose in Malaysia smells different than the smell of a rose in Phillipines.
the air in Malaysia feels different than the air in Egypt.
i want to feel it all.
i want to see it all.
i want to experience it all.
and to maximise the whole experience, kena la at least familiar with the language. senang sikit nak communicate!
however, my brain is not as capable as i want it to be.
i've learnt mandarin before, but lack of practise and when it got harder, i just stopped trying.
i learnt a bit of japanese from watching anime so obsessively when i was a teenager, but only a few words sticks in my memory. and most of the things i catch comes with their actions.
like "anata bakaa!!!" is said with fist by the sides, shoulders up and eyes closed but still cute.
i don't think i can survive through Japan if i speak anime. haha!!
i studied french when i was in uni for 2 semesters and now?
all i can remember are basic stuff like
"comment ta le vous?"
"je m'apelle maria"
"je ne sais pas"
and when i went to Paris 3 years ago with my besties, i remembered the first sentences i would say is:
"bon jour/soir, je ne sais pas Francais, je parle anglais"
means "good morning/evening, i don't know french, i speak english"
oh and if i want to ask for the toilet,
"excusez mois, toilette s'il vous plait"
means "excuse me, toilet please".
benda simple camtu je boleh! heheee =p
but alhamdulillah, the french were really cool about it.
so i have so many places i wish to cover, so many countries to experience, but i fear the language barrier i might face.
i wasn't so welcomed when i was in
i guessed that they weren't impressed enough. at least masa kat Paris, muqadimmah i agak panjang. hahaha!
truthfully, i have a japanese and french dictionary at home. japanese tu was from my arwah tok, and the french were my parents'. diorang pun macam i gak.. bercita cita nak cakap language lain.
i'm now trying to learn Arab, tapi i cannot brain the different gender thing for things! same like french! i tak paham why meja pun ada gender.
oh well. language is not my strength, but i sure wish i have a Samsung Galaxy S4. i saw the video review that they have S translator which can translate written and spoken words!
*taken from the video review: the dude used his phone to translate what he needs to the phone and the pakcik tu tengah listening to the translation*
super cool thing to have if i wanna be a globe trekker.
bila dah keluar kat Malaysia, that's the first thing i wanna check out!
cepat keluar please.
