^ha-ha! sabagay, awkward nga naman na yung lips mo naka-form na parang 'o' pero 'e' yung sound na lumalabas, no?
 
maikwento ko na rin...i took the crash course in german at the goethe institut for about 8 consecutive weekends. of course, yung language instructor namin pinoy (she also teaches german in UP and in DFA), so she spoke german with a filipino accent. i finished the course with a "sehr gut" (excellent) mark. but the moment i landed in deutschland, and the shuttle driver who fetched me at the airport talked to me, wala akong maintindihan! nyay! so for my next couple of months there, parang back to scratch na naman ako.  ;D ibang-iba talaga ang accent nila. and germans speak way too fast!

^^ haha! ang hirap talaga no!

ako din dati, nung 1st level pa lang ako sa goethe, nakatapos din ako na sehr gut. pero 2nd level, hindi na kinaya ng powers ko. hehe. basta sobrang nakakalito talaga, lalo na kung hindi mo napa-practice.

two months ago, meron akong nakasabay sa bus na filipina. she was talking on her cellphone in german. as in tuloy tuloy sya at ang bilis nya! napaisip tuloy ako...for me to get to her level, i think it's going to take me more than 5 year pa :P

ikaw sis, ilang years/months ka na nakakasalita ng german? ako talaga, sobrang basic e. di ba yung mga post mo nun sa beatles thread, i can understand them. but the thing is, di ko mareply in german kasi hirap pa ako mag-construct ng sentences. :(

mga sis, if you have the contact information of languages international or other languages schools, please post them here

my younger sister wants to study mandarin or korean and we're looking for a good school.

somebody mentioned UP. do they have informal courses for mandarin, korean, etc? which particular college? CCSP, Asian Studies Center, etc?

thanks mga sis :)

hi sis, try browsing their site. mandarin and korean fall under asian studies center. i'm still waiting for their response for my query. pag may balita kayo pa share naman please. tnx. :)

Mga sis, UP offers varied language classes. Meron silang German, Spanish, Italian, Portugese(not so sure on this). 2000 lang and fee for 10 session (yata, I cant really remember) every Saturday. You can inquire at the European Languages department at CAL. I cant remember the room number though. Pero the next cycle will start next year na kasi the last cycle for this year already started nung October or early November. :)

Yung Asian Language naman is at Asian Center sa Romulo. I inquired before if they offer Mandarin or Japanese. Unfortunately, they dont offer extramural classes anymore. Para sa mga UP students na lang yata offered yun. :)

Can anyone inform me pag nagreply sila tapos meron na ulit classes offered? Hehe! ;D Thanks! :)

Try going to China - its THE most effective!
I'm a product kasi of BLCU (Beijing Language and Culture University)

If not - try going to Berlitz?  Iba kasi if you're exposed eh..

Sis, how did you apply? Im planning to go to China next year pero Im still choosing if Xiamen or Beijing. Or maybe in Taiwan. Hehe! Mag-costing pa muna ako. Haha! :) Thanks! :D

@ dcharmed1:

Yep, it's College of Arts and Letters. I think the trunk line is 981-8500 then ask for the local number of their European Studies department. Or try this direct line pero Im not sure if it's correct: 928-7508.  ;)

^^Thanks for the info sis. I'll try calling CAL tomorrow. Sana suertehin ako. Hehe.

Actually, gusto ko rin yang Fookien kasi sa totoo lang, mas maraming gumagamit nyan at Cantonese. May nagsabi kasi sakin na mas maraming nakakaintindi nyan sa China at HK kesa Mandarin. How true ito?

Naku sis, hindi rin. It will depend on the people you interact with. Baka naman from Fujian province yung karamihan ng mga naka-interact nung nagsabi sayo.  ;)

HK kasi Cantonese talaga sila so it's either you speak in Madarin or Cantonese. China naman is a big country and madami silang dialect. Pero if you stay sa Xiamen or nearby places, Fookien will do. Pero if you go to other provinces, kailangan talaga marunong ka mag mandarin.  :)

Parang dito rin sa Pinas, may mga tao na ang alam eh yung dialect nila kaya di nakakapagsalita ng Tagalog pero naiintindihan nila yun...and vice versa.  ;D

@ *Tinnie*:

IMO, Japanese is easier in terms of speech. Sa written kasi they have 3 systems so kung di ka matyaga mag-aral, mahihirapan ka din. German naman is difficult in terms of the accent. Di ko kinaya! haha! :D
