"Wǒ bù dǒng hán yù"...but I'm learning! I'm only on my second 'Chinese Made Easy' lesson and it is so much fun - I'm loving it. Of course, yes, it is soooo difficult but my teacher is fab and makes it relevant to how I can practice day to day (courage required!) It's not really 'necessary' to speak Chinese here in Singapore...English/Singlish is spoken and understood island-wide but for those trips around China it will come in useful. Anyway, for the last 4 years I've been saying "I would really love to learn mandarin" so here I go. Apparently, one of the traits of my star sign which is Gemini is a love for and success with languages ;-) I agree with the love for!
Living in France for a total of 9 years definitely developed into a success with French. Without French I would not have had such great friends or amazing experiences there...I promise to do a topic about living in France and the French language and people (bien sûr les noms changés pour protéger les personnes concernées :-D Yes, you'll see living in France wasn't always with a smile but I did have lots of smiley times ;-)
They say music can alter moods and talk to you...I totally agree with this. Everyday, twice a day, I walk my lovely dog and pop in my iPod - it is filled with a real mix (Take That - with and without Robbie, Rihaaaaaanna, Cold Play, Eminem, Cheryl Cole, Air, Ke$ha, Enrique, Taio Cruz, Pulp and other crazy choices) with the iPod on shuffle the music really does 'set' my day. A song that is really making me smile right now (constantly on the radio), I will find it on iTunes, is Enrique featuring Pitbul ...I like it ;-)
Zài jiàn - later...
kisses 'n' smiles from me xx ;-)
