Here’s a fun thread I saw on Twitter I thought you’d like!
How did you pick your languages? I’ll start…
mandatory language at school
mandatory 2nd language at school (the other option was Spanish but hey, I was a fan of Tokio Hotel back then if anyone remembers)
was an “option” in high school for extra credit, then absolutely loved the language and took it as a major at university
mandatory third language for my bachelor degree, I used to watch a lot of Japanese dramas as a teenager so it was an easy choice
I watched “Full House” with Song Hye Kyo sometime in 2008, fell in love with the language, completely forgot about j-dramas, and studied it on and off since then
How about you?
