GOT7 Member Jackson Says Dating Is Best Way To Learn Foreign Language From Experience
Ever wondered how GOT7 member Jackson learned how to speak Korean?
The K-Pop idol from Hong Kong recently revealed that he learned how to speak the language fluently by dating. He appeared in JTBC’s ‘Give Me A Meal’ recently on October 10th.
During the show, he stated
” I started out learning Korean by studying text books but later began dating in South Korea. I think dating is the fastest way to learn a foreign language. Learning a language is more than just memorizing words and phrases. It’s learning a country’s culture. I don’t think text books can teach you these things.”
He also added
“I’ve dated someone for three years and my Korean really improved during arguments. When you’re in an argument, you want to express how you feel but if you’re not fluent in the language you communicate in, how are you going to express all of that? It’s an annoying feeling when there’s a language barrier.”
