For English Speakers and Learners

趣味

Hi peeps! Jessica here 🙂

I’ve decided to write in English this time because I was just curious about what would it be like haha Since now I’m more exposed to foreign languages in Singapore, I feel more comfortable/easier discussing specific topics in English rather than in Japanese.

 

In addition, actually I believe there are some readers who would like to enjoy our posts in English as well assuming that many of them are interested in English learning. So hope this helps you in some way!

Just random thoughts-

 

I feel my perspective changes when I switch languages; Japanese – English – Korean.

 

Some of my friends have told me before that I sound like a different person when I talk in Japanese and English. I think this is true to some extent and it’s not only to me but also to anybody else who speaks more than two languages. You think differently and express differently depending on which language you’re using.

 

For example, Japanese culture is very strict when it comes to “politeness”. Therefore, Japanese language functions well when it follows this strict concept of “politeness”. This is why you have to pay attention to not only what you say but also how you say it.

On the other hand, I feel English is less complicated so you can be more straightforward.

 

…Why the heck am I talking like I’m writing a paper?? Lol

Anyways, I just wanted to say some stuff can be discussed better in English without unnecessary/too ambiguous words. This is why I thought I would give it a try!

 

Maybe I’ll be publishing posts in English once in a while from now so that English speakers who can’t read Japanese would be able to find something new from Nameless.life! Hopefully!

Looking forward to a feedback from you 🙂

 

Cheers!

    I think most of us have a default language in our minds that we “think” in. For example, if my brain can be clearly divided into the languages I think in, it would be: 70% English/Singlish, 29.95% in Chinese and 0.05% Japanese? Lol.

    Knowing multiple languages is always an advantage and my mum told me before that knowing another language is like seeing with a different pair of eyes! What an analogy!

      Thanks for your comment, Dean. Yeah I agree with what your mom told you. Knowing multiple languages is like having multiple personalities I feel haha
