Today in my English Phonetics class, we were practicing some differences in pronunciation between B.E and A.E.
One of the phonemes was /l/. Because in American English there’s something called dark L, anyway I had to say: I love you Lilly Lillian (a sentence with a lot of /l/ sounds) and my professor said I didn’t get it right :(
Anyway being the proud brat I am it kinda hurt me to hear that… So I’ll practice the stupid L sound and show him I can do it (ò_ó)9
I don’t know if you know but I’m studying Japanese / English Translation, when I first entered University I had to study Portuguese for two years (long story), I’m a 3rd year now, so I don’t have to study it anymore.
Before that, I went to a German school which means I studied German for about twelve years….and I’m totally forgetting it >_< I’m focusing all my energies into Japanese since it takes a hell of a good memory to be able to read and speak, and WRITE, don’t even get me started on writting…
My point is… It’s frustrating how some things will slowly slip away D:
One day I’ll wake up and won’t be able to utter a word of German and Portuguese which’ll mean I went from speaking 5 languages to only three, and that sucks :(
