Being a tri-lingual.


I'm not gonna brag about this (will). Nah just kidding. People from high school and college actually kind of see this as my strength while I don't really know.

Awhile ago, a friend of mine sent me an article that made me want to share this thing.

I did not learn this languages by choice (just so you know).  How did I learn them?

FILIPINO: Contrary to the popular belief, TAGALOG isn't what we speak, alright? It's FILIPINO. I probably can speak this because I am half-Filipino and I am now living in the Philippines. Actually, I've been here quite a long time so what are the chances that I can't speak/understand the language? Not to make anyone who have been living here for quite sometime and still can't speak the language bad of course. I'm just saying.

ENGLISH: English is probably a little bit something that I chose to be good at. I mean, they teach English in all levels here and in college (I'm still in college), if you can't understand English, you're doomed. But I think I'm really into it and I don't know. I think I'm just comfortable in this language. Why though? I wonder.

JAPANESE: My dad is Japanese and can't speak English/Filipino so this I think I learned from living in Japan when I was younger and sort of conversing with our neighbors and friends and all that stuff. I think this is also something I am passionate about. It's kind of a nice language to sort of learn and put in heart.
