Being the nut that I am, I watch a lot of anime and Asian drama, even some Asian reality shows. The more I watch, the more I pick up on certain words. With subtitles, and understanding the situations these words are constantly being used in, I garner understanding and am slowly building up a (pathetically puny) arsenal of words in Japanese, Korean, and Mandarin.
Today’s Word of the Day:
Chingu (chin-gu) 친구
After watching 12+ episodes of Taste Sweet Love, I have come to learn the word “chingu” which means friend in Korean. I am excited every time I can recognize a new word. Maybe my capacity for learning languages isn’t as deplorable as I thought, then again, probably not. My German and Spanish are practically nonexistent.
