  1. Thank you! I love this video so much. I am always fascinated with languages and seriously, I am envious of people who can speak more than 2 languages. But I found that languages need practice. In my younger years I was crazy about Canto dramas/films and I watched a lot of them to the point that I can understand the dialogues without reading the subtitles. However, I stop watching them when I entered university and I started to forget most of the words since I have nobody to practice with (not many Chinese speaking Cantonese in my university). Similarly, in uni, we have to learn Arabic, although I wasn’t that good in Arabic but at least I can engage in simple conversation. After graduating, over the years I forgot most of the words already. My question is, any tips on how to make sure I will not forget the language? I am now learning Korean and Japanese and I’m worried they will end up like my Cantonese and Arabic. Lol.

    1. Well! Hi there! My only tips are to keep the languages alive. Listen to songs that keep your vocabulary alive, watch some TV shows here and there or have at least one friend who’s a native speaker whom you can converse with. For me, I do have the ability not to forget a lot of the language. I only forget vocabulary, but important grammar points stay more or less alive when I speak. So it’s important to even talk to yourself sometimes, talk about your day to yourself in each language just to keep it fresh in your mind. I’d recommend these things and of course, making time for some fun TV shows too!

      1. Thank you very much for your tips! I watched a lot of Korean shows and listen to Korean songs nowadays so it kinda help. I guess you’re right, the only way to do this is to keep the language alive.

  2. That’s what I do with English. I still think that I’m not good enough because my pronounce is abysmal lol
    But, yeah,it’s always good to practice reading, listening to music and watching films/TV shows. I mean I just studied 2 years in an English course and nowadays can read and play games and understand everything, just practicing in my own.
    But ahmin, that’s really impressive. 5 languages, wow

  3. Hallo!

    Dein Deutsch ist gut 😀 Ein Freund von mir wohnt seit knapp 4 Jahren hier in Deutschland und spricht nicht so gut Deutsch wie du. Für normale Unterhaltungen würde es also aufjedenfall reichen! 🙂

    Well, whatever, thank you for that awesome video ^-^! It’s so inspiring! I feel so motivated to improve my English and keep on learning Chinese

    But I also feel like starting to learn Korean again. I tried it once, but… it’s so different from German. I was so confused that I gave up ^^’ Do you have some tips on learning Korean?

    1. Well learn to write and read first, everything gets easier then! Then get familiar with verb endings, and particles so you can make simple sentences. How about that? Oh and thank you so so so much!

  4. “There were so many fanfictions in English.” Truuue. It’s kind of hard to find quality fanfictions written in my first language.
    I find it interesting that you have different way of speaking (tone?) for each language.
    Thank you for sharing your experience! I’ve been wanting to learn Korean and I realized after watching this video that really, all you need is the motivation to actually learn the language.

  5. Hey! Never really commented here before but I wanted to write a quick note. I find it so inspirational that you can speak so many languages.

    Personally, I learn a few languages at school but I can’t really speak them at the level of fluency that you do. It’s a great message that you’ve sent saying that you don’t really need to learn how to speak a language in a formal setting and watching videos is a great way to do it. And listening to your Mandarin singing was so impressive. 你的发音非常好,像一个中国人一样!

    Really wasn’t a specific point for this comment. Just wanted to share some thoughts and keep up the good work!

  6. Hola!
    ya se me había olvidado como llegue a este blog ( fue porque estaba buscando el rango vocal de cantantes coreanas) xD
    Gracias por compartir tu experiencia de verdad eres una motivación y me alegra que hayas tenido esas oportunidades! Lo haces genial
    yo También quiero aprender coreano para poder cantar las canciones que me encantan siento que tienen mucho sentimiento
    pero empezare con el ingles aunque he llegado a comprender la mayoría de lo que has dicho y eso me alegra ya que no estoy tan perdida
    luego seguiré con el Coreano
    supongo que has estudiado música (por que sabes y cantas muy bien jajajaja) soy nueva así que seguiré viendo el blog
    deberías de enseñar coreano o como cantar las canciones así como leer hangul pronunciación y gramática con una canción
    PD: me encanta kero chan :3 tercera temporada 2018
    también si tienes tiempo y me podrías ayudarme con un favor te lo agradeceria mucho
    en mi examen de canto tengo que cantar en italiano el problema no es el idioma si no que se supone que soy soprano las notas las tengo pero la expansión de voz es mi dificultad de estar en c4 paso a c5 pero con voz de cabeza pero no puedo subir a escalas 😦 es difícil de explicar
    e considerado cantar opera (se que es otra técnica y que dicen que es difícil pero son notas mas agudas que las canciones pop) no se que hacer T.T
