Hello! I'm excited to participate in a new feature created
by Novel Heartbeat today! The feature is called Life of A Blogger and it's a weekly meme. How does it work? Basically, a personal question is asked on every Thursday and we have to answer it! This is my first time joining this feature but the past, current, and future topics seem very creative and I love it already! So without further ado, the topic for today is...
Well this is fun! Other than English (obvs), I also speak Chinese and Malay. Technically speaking, English serves as a second language while Chinese is my mother tongue. And since I live in Malaysia, we are required to learn Malay too as it is the local language.
I've always been comfortable around the English language as my mom always encouraged me to read books in English since I was small. Back then, she borrowed piles of books from the library just for me to read! I'm not kidding. That's just how awesome my mom is (heh), but back to the point. Since then, I started having a greater interest in English novels and immersed myself in the magical world of books over the years of my childhood. I'm not as fluent as a native English speaker but I've been trying hard to improve my use of the language.
Would you want to know some Chinese words? Oh, come on. I know you do. Here are some easy ones for you anyway.
The most commonplace sentence, "How are you?"
The word 'books'
Shhh. Don't tell anyone, but Kat isn't my name. This is.
Still, you can just call me Kat. :)
Malay is a whole other different thing. As I didn't fall in love with the language and it wasn't my mother tongue, I didn't have that connection to it like I had with English and Chinese. However, as I was already learning Malay since the start of my education, I'd still say I feel more comfortable with it than other languages that I have never spoken before.
The thought of learning other languages has stuck in my mind for quite a bit now, but I'm still undecided on which language. I started learning French through an app and bailed out a long time ago, so I've been more careful and selective on whether or not I want to learn a new language -and which I want to learn more about when I grow up. Everyone has a certain language they want to learn but I don't know if I have the time and commitment for an entirely new language. The passion is still there! I'm just (very) unsure of my commitment to it. I don't like quitting on things that I'm sure I can handle.
Tell me what language you speak and which language you know!
Kat is a voracious reader who enjoys nothing more than losing herself in a good book. Fantasy is definitely her cup of tea. She often complains about never having enough time to read and constantly struggles with keeping her TBR pile a considerably decent size. Read more or keep up with her bookish whims on Goodreads or bloglovin.
