Re: I am your father (20 different versions)

Man, the Thai version is sort of expected but it still gives me a funny feeling that this quote probably belongs to some Thai fantasy/period TV series than Star Wars. The first and second person pronouns used here are rarely used in real life. They're rather archaic and carry subtle superiority/infe...

Re: Music:)

@Amlir Yup. The most particular case is when I took a liking of the song Selim Alakhyarov sang here in his Golos' audition. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WeEzXu2byz4 When I looked up for the original version, totally didn't expect to get sent to 'Soviet pop' from 1969 but it's fantastic nonetheles...

Re: Music:)

I do listen to lots of Russian music and I have listened to a bit of Kino and DDT. Can't say their music is my type, or maybe I only listened to too few songs. It's difficult to say what genre is my favorite since it spans from Амурские Волный, Улетай на Крыяльх Ветра to Maksim Fadeev, Aleksandr Pan...

Re: Foreign Language Education In Schools

In Thailand, English is taught as early as in kindergarten, though grammar and such won’t appear until in grade school. I’m not sure how much the secondary/junior high-high school has changed since I graduated. Back in my days, additional foreign languages are offered as combo programs for grade 10-...

Re: Saying Cat in Different Languages

In Thai, well... Typical word for cat you'll hear in everyday conversation: แมว (Maeo) Poetic, likely encountered in some literature or as a part of random people's name/surname: วิฬาร์ (Wi-la) For the sound cats make... yeah, Thais are being overly dramatic and have several assigned based on age/mo...

Re: How did you start learning the language?.

For English, I've learned it along with Thai since kindergarten but only for super easy words like apple, bee, cat, dog, etc. Not until grade 3 that the lessons started focusing on grammar. Still, similar to Amlir, playing games forced me to learn a lot outside of school, although I may also contrib...

Re: (Archive) Quiz: Which English do you speak?

@IceVijal 🤔 Now that you mentioned it, I think my experience is similar. Growing as a pre-teen/teenager in the 90s MTV era, I listened to lots of music from Michael Jackson and Janette Jackson, along with Whitney Houston and many more African-American artists since R&B was among my favorite genr...

Re: (Archive) Quiz: Which English do you speak?

Our top three guesses for your English dialect: US Black Vernacular / Ebonics New Zealandish South African Interesting, because this probably means I picked up a lot of my grammar preference from media since in Thailand there is a clear bias in employment of native English speaker teachers (mostly ...

Re: (Archive) What language should I learn next (Quiz)

I got Greek and Russian, but I’m already learning Russian. :lol: Still, yeah I do admit I have an interest in Greek, though I’m not sure how it fares against some other languages I also want to try learning some day (namely Hungarian and Georgian, perhaps Finnish, too, one day when I work up enough ...

Re: Language quizzes

Got 57/60 on Lao, except I'm a Thai who claim I hardly know the alphabet used in Lao except those that look super similar to the same letters in Thai. I guess the fact that I picked up random Isaan words (the regional language of northeast Thailand which is virtually the same root as Lao) from years...

Re: What are your Language Learning Goals for 2022?

I guess my priority is to continue solidifying my Russian basics. Don't want to set too much hope since my learning capability is affected by autism spectrum so my progress is always slow. Honestly, I don't think my Russian skill will become anywhere near decent until I keep hammering on memorizing ...

Re: Flags

Thailand's flag doesn't show up with :th: also. I solved the problem by using the Thai flag emoji from my phone's keyboard instead and it shows when I preview my signature at least.
