Guest Post: My experience in learning Languages
¡Epale!, my name is Luis, I am from Venezuela, I was born and raised in the Amazon Jungle, one of the most exotics places in the world. I studied Management of Tourism Enterprises. I can speak Castilian, English and I am learning French and Chinese, more Chinese than French since I’m living in Taipei.
Castilian is my mother tongue, so I had no problem learning it Jajaja… English, jum, I never wanted to learn it, but I realized it is a really important language and if you are able to speak English, you can do a lot of things. I learned it when I was in high school, it is mandatory to take English classes. French was the first language that I wanted to learn. I studied it 4 years ago, for about 1 year and a half… Chinese, never thought about it until I went to Shanghai, and just the fact of being in a totally different environment called my attention. But I guess what I most like is when you say: I can speak Chinese and everybody is like O.O
When do I use Castilian/ English/ French/ Chinese?Most of the time I use Castilian, I love my mother tongue to me it is the most beautiful language in the world, it is so beautiful that sometimes I feel ashamed of myself because my orthography is bad, then English, I use it when I go traveling or when I study. French, I have never been in any French-speaking country, I don’t really use it, just as I said, I learned it because I wanted, and last but not least Chinese, I should be able to speak “good” Chinese by now, but I don’t feel comfortable speaking in Chinese, but I am working on it, because my goal is to go back home and speak Chinese.
