I am asking my friend about picking up girls in Chinese!

The difference between different cultures is alway an interesting topic. In the following vlog we are discussing a little bit about Asian and Western girls, and in the same time I practice my Chinese, which you can also do so ( vocabulary list included ). There might be viewers who disagree with what I have said in the video, please feel free to leave a comment on YouTube and we can discuss the details!

[SCROLL DOWN FOR THE VIDEO] Obviously my mother tongue is not Chinese, so I might make some mistakes, but I am trying to do my best so that you can understand it. I have been studying this language for almost two years now and I can honestly say that this is the most beautiful language I have ever learnt. Some might say that the characters are impossible to master, which is partly true. I would say that writing is pretty difficult but you can learn enough characters in a couple of years to read Chinese texts.

So here is the thing, I have been doing an exchange program in Kobe, Japan, and I have made some Chinese friends who are so happy to teach me their language. As I result sometimes my Chinese is even better than my Japanese. My dream is of course that I can speak it as a native.

If you listen to the video carefully, you might notice that our accents are not really the same. It is because Luo has a so called Fujian accent. I have started to learn the language when I was in Shenzhen and the Chinese there is not the same as in Fujian. I think this makes it more interesting, and I would be so happy if I had the time to go China and experience more of these things. We tend to discuss such topics a lot, I don't think if I lie to much when I say that Western girls are open, when it is about choosing a spouse ( 择偶 ). As we have said in the second half of the video, we plan to do this so called survey (调查)when we have the time.

Keep you updated!
