I know this post might be a little unorthodox but I just cannot wait to share this amazing Youtube channel laoshu50500 with the folks who might read my blog.
As a non-native English speaker, I have came across plenty of practitioners who claim to be bilingual, trilingual or multilingual, most of them mastered the foreign languages either by growing up in a diverse environment or affording the privilege of attending some sort of school and receive certain training.
The Youtuber Moses totally redefined all of my impression of language study by posting videos about how he practice foreign languages by self teaching and constant communicating. He brought so much happiness to the people around them, strangers just met by recognizing their identity, respecting their culture, and most importantly, working hard (maybe not that hard as he must be smart 🙂 ) to literally speak their language to show respect. It is not that one guy that can speak so many language impressed me the most, it is his humble attitude and his deep desire to practice, to learn and to communicate with another individual on such an equal basis that makes wonder, if everyone in a world spend just a little time to work hard and think/speak from a totally different identity, how much better this world will become.
