Home > I think I have to learn Portuguese lol

March 3rd, 2012 Posted in Uncategorized

One of my friends wants to go down to Brazil in September and invited me along.   I’ve been invited down there countless times but never went.  I think this time I will go, but I hear you have to speak some Portuguese.  Which sucks because I am terrible at languages.  I don’t think it is because I have some natural deficiency with them, it is because unless I am in an environment where that language is dominant, I see no reason to learn it.  Like, when I was in China I began to pick up the language as fast as I gobble cum pills.  But I have zero motivation when I am not in the environment.  My mind wanders.  It sucks.  I watched a bunch of Brazilian films recently, like “Elite Squad” and “Elite Squad 2″ and that language (Portuguese) is damn hard to follow.  My ear doesn’t know what is going on.  Even in Chinese, I can make out the words and the flow of them in terms of structure.  Portuguese doesn’t even sound like a romance language.  I am not mocking it, I actually like the sound of it, it just sounds so damn alien and I have no idea how I am going to get used to it listening to some Pimsleur mp3s or something.  So I guess I am doomed. lol
