A Travellerspoint blog

Aug. 12th

I've been here roughly a month and a half, and already I'm starting to become Asian. It took me 4 times in class, the other day, to say volleyball. For some reason I was insisting on saying bolleyball, which is how Asians (or at least South Koreans) pronounce volleyball. I about ripped my hair out.

Slowly I've been shortening my sentences, just talking to foreigners. All you need is key words, so why with all the rest of the mumbo jumbo? For instance: "Let's go now." -> "Go now." And it's sad, because all of the foreigners know what you're saying, because they say the same exact thing.

That's all I really have to update on. So if I come back with broken English and pronounce my F's P's, my B's to V's, and just simply making no sense at all, you know why.
