Your native language...
Posted 3/19/08 , edited 3/19/08
do you feel ashamed if you cant speak / understand / read / write / etc... your language ? like... if you were...

Example...
if you walk up to a bunch of filipinos ( or your ethnicity )and they all were talking in tagalog ( or your language )and they started talking to you and you didnt understand a thing they were saying and you couldnt respond and they didnt consider you filipino (or one of them) what would you do?

i can speak / understand / read / write / etc... my language... i was wondering what you pplz think...

like my brothers can understand a lil and speak ( they mostly know all the bad words... who doesnt... ) a lil they cant read or write... my parents dont consider them filipino... i started cracking up when i heard them say that...


i didnt know if this alrdy xisted i was to lazy to look...

Yeah... I still speak korean. But it is a little hard to learn a new language when you know a few already and dont want to forget it.

I have no problem speaking and writing in Filipino (English and Tagalog). But there are times that my English has a Filipino accent whenever I talk with a fellow Filipino. lol...

I've also learned the Hiligaynon dialect when I finally came back to my hometown when I was still in High School. At first I thought I'm going to suck with that dialect forever but after almost a year, i started speaking Hiligaynon all the time. But i did not forget how to speak my first language(Tagalog) though.

I'd say my spanish is very very good. I can always understand people well except for when people at my school talk to me because they are taking spanish and they say it completely wrong and then they are like: Haha I said something in spanish you didn't get .. then I get pissed and correct them. Its all good so yeah .. but I guess my french ( which will make me trilingual once im done taking it in high school ) could use some work sometimes.
