Binge-watching Dramas & Language Learning

When do I not? Haha. But that’s not the point.

After weeks and weeks (more like months) of Korean dramas, I wanted a break from listening to Korean, so last week became Chinese drama week, and I just finished a Japanese drama.

I can multitask with Chinese and Korean dramas but with Japanese dramas… #constantlyreadingsubtitles >< Reminds me of when I first started watching Korean dramas and relied on subtitles to understand. Moments like this make me realise how far I’ve come.

I would love to pick up Japanese one day, but my Simplified Chinese reading and writing skills are weak (I need hanyu pinyin when typing Chinese) and Japanese uses kanji (Traditional Chinese characters), which makes it twice as bad. D:

I also want to learn sign language one day! Although there’s so many kinds, I have no idea where to start… but that’s another topic altogether! I digress.

Let’s stick to brushing up on my Chinese first, haha.

Speaking of which, there is one thing I really hate – people who presume you would be good at your mother tongue and mock you when you are not.

Yes, I’m of Chinese descent, but at school, I always excelled in English and struggled with Chinese. It is not a given for everyone to be good at their mother tongue because so many factors affect whether they would be good at it or not. #rantover

Taiwanese Dramas

T-DRAMA; 命中注定我爱你 Fated to Love You

好久没看台湾偶像剧了!最后是在去年6月看的爱情闯进门。一转眼就过了半年!我也好久没写华文了。有点陌生哦… 呵呵。但那是另外可故事。这部偶像剧还蛮好笑的。

看了前几集会伤心难过,但我相信结局不会不快乐的吧。一定要 happy ending!

It’s been so long since I last watched a Taiwanese drama! The last time was last June when I watched When Love Walked In. Half a year passed in a blink of an eye! It’s also been a long time since I wrote Chinese. It feels a little strange… hehe. But that’s another story. This drama is pretty funny.

I watched the first few episodes and they were pretty heartbreaking, but I believe the ending won’t be a sad one. It has to be a happy ending!
