Language ego, blog ego

It might be interesting to you that no one who are offline friends as well as family knows the existence of this blog. I started blogging at blogger.com by myself and there are nobody who knows this Far Far Away. Therefore I can write what I feel without any inhibition, which I enjoy.
Though I have another blog where my all Korean friends know and visit and two blog share many parts of content, it is somewhat different to post here from there.

Futhermore I write this blog in my foreign language, English. I have not been abroad to study English and I know my Enlgish is poor. However there is something special and new when it comes to write in another language. Sometimes it is hard to determine which expression is more appropriate to use in order to convey the meaning. However I do not use dictionary well and I write them as I want! Haha...

Do you know the term, language ego? (language ego: Learning a new language involves developing a new mode of thinking - a new language "ego.") I guess I have two blog egos as well as two language egos.

Anyway...TGIF! Have a good day!

Aha! The usual suspects are here, thanks to The Korean Bloglist.

Anyway, "language ego" sounds like a cool term. I know my thinking is very different in Korean and English. I barely make sense in either.

yeah! it's true co'z i can't post anything i want on my blog too... anyways, i think your english is good and if only i don't know that you are a korean i wouldn't know co'z you sound good. sometimes using the foreign language is difficult co'z u really can't express ur feelings unlike using your own native language that you can talk or say anything freely and spontaneously...

hi flowerful!

i salute you because you are pretty fluent in english. keep up the good work and keep on practicing and writing english. :-)

it's only natural for us to speak/write flawed english because it's only our second language; we're not born english speakers, anyway. we naturally think in our local language, and we translate our thoughts to english. but through practice and usage we eventually come to a point (the so-called "clicking point") where we don't have to think in our local language anymore just to express ourselves in english; we just simply think *directly* in english -- no intermediary translations required.

learning foreign languages is fun. keep it up. expand your knowledge.

i'm from the philippines, anyway. :-)

In the movie "far and Away" the plot was that the charactors dared to leave Ireland and travel to America.You are a explorer and are willing to take risk.
