Pronunciation Battle: Japanese, Korean, English, and Chinese!

Dave is back with another video!

An American, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese person will say the same word and we'll see how different they are.

The words he chose are English words that are not changed much in Japanese/Korean/Chinese (for example, computer is pronounced "com-pyu-teo" in Korean...)

Enjoy!

I think Erina also just has an insanely cute voice so it makes her Japanese sounds super baby-ish so please don't be offended if they make Japanese seem overly cute :3

I hope to understand the basics of all of these languages someday!

Who is with me!?

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
BTS Fan Art Friday~
안녕하세요! Hey, Everyone!! It's been a while!! I know I haven't been active here for a long time but I promise you that I have been lurking here every so often. On to the topic of today's card. Today is Fan art Friday in the BTS Community!! This weeks featured member is: Park Jimin~ I originally meant to use these two photos and I have personally drawn for Writer Wednesday but I took too long drawing the both of them. So, I have decided to use them for today since it still fits into today's theme~ I hope you like them~ It was supposed to have text on it saying: BTS Writer Wednesday. But right now there is no point to leave the words on there LOL I rushed drawing the both of these, so it isn't great LOL Can you guess what photos were used as reference??
