幾日前通過朋友JY認識一位新朋友EL, 因為我同JY一向嚟都習慣用英文溝通, 所以EL都因此用英文同我講嘢.. 噢, 其實佢都知我都識中文, 不過唔明點解偏要同我講英文?? 點解我覺得佢「硬係」呢?? 因為聽得出佢英文唔係咁好, 之不過又可以滔滔不絕咁講得好流暢喎.. 呢, 嗰啲好流暢, 但係文法用詞就八成唔啱嗰啲哩.. anyway, 唔係批評人家, 不過我其實好鐘意呢種人架, 因為肯講肯學唔怕瘀, 通常呢類人係一啲架子都冇, 好友善兼冇心機囉我覺得.. :)

講到講英文, 我都自覺退步咗, 因為工作環境都係用中文多.. 你知啦, 同啲同事甚至啲客開始用係英文, 但係熟落之後咪又全部講中文?? 講返自己語言點都close啲吖嘛, 啱唔啱?? 唯一用英文溝通嘅MSN, 都用埋晒啲broken english, 一句裡頭有時八成係用拼音拼出中文添, 搞笑!! 所以諗諗下, 我都係繼續同啲用英文溝通嘅朋友用返英文溝通好喇, 保持水準吖嘛, 哈哈~~knew a new friend EL through another friend JY, since i am used to communicate with JY using english, and hence EL followed and talked to us in english.. well, i knew he actually knows i can speak chinese, but no idea why he kept speaking in english with me?? and why did i use the word "kept"?? that's because you can hear that his english is not that good, but still he can speak rather fluently and smoothly.. well you know?? those fluent and smooth talk, but 80% in a sentence the grammar and vocabulary are not correct.. anyway, i'm not criticising on him, but actually quite enjoy talking, because i really like this kind of people.. they are not afraid of getting wrong but dare to speak and willing to learn.. i personally think this kind of people are sincere and friendly, approachable and kind hearted though.. :)

mentioning about speaking in english, i actually think i'm a bit behind now, because just lack of english speaking environment.. you know, you normally converse in english with your friends colleagues or clients, but as you get closer you tend to speak in your mother tongue instead, correct?? even in MSN, we tend to use broken english, and sometimes we could even use english to spell chinese while chatting, funny enough yeah?? so, i think it's better for me to keep communicating in english with those whom i've always been doing with, just to keep myself up with the level of proficiency, haha!!
