Polyglot (adj.) : able to speak or write several languages; multilingual
I remember the first time I learned this word. It was when I held my dream as an English and Japanese native speaker. Behind the story of that
dream ambition is simple, only because I loved watching anime in English subtitle. Such a simple minded person I was.
I still have this ambition, to be a polyglot. It’s not easy as I think before. Learning new languages require stability. Something that I still don’t have. Some said, to learn language, what you have to do is learn everyday, even only one word. When you said ‘later’, you know what it would end up. Procrastination. Laziness. Forgetfulness.
And when you suddenly feel energetic again, you open your book to learn some chapters or open language learning application….
*sigh* I already learned this chapter that time, but I forget it again. Do i have to start from the beginning again? When will I get the polyglot title if I am still walking in the same place?
Not trying to make people offended. I saw my reflection when writing this post (to my current self who’s a pro-procrastinator, wake up !).
The thing is, not only learning language, when we’re learning anything, if you don’t re-run through chapters or lessons in your book, materials, or whatsoever, you will meet forgetfulness.
Can I pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
It’s a lyric from Airplanes (part 2)
I really hope 2017 will be a year which I can learn English, Japanese, Korean, Russian and French, much more than what I did in 2016. Those unique alphabets and accents are the reasons why I keep my preseverance to be a polyglot.
Let’s learn more languages !
P.S: Duolingo, memrise, drops. Apps that I used a lot in the past to learn languages. It has helped me a lot.
