Fake English

We talked about learning the language in order to speak properly and get understood (properly!). Yep, check.

What about learning the lyrics before singing a foreign-language song?

More than 12.500.000 views on youtube. You need to see this.

The reaction of Mariah Carey:

Ken leeeeeee, ….

P.S.  Guess this other “American” song. Can you?

    I have known people who have learned English pronunciation through songs.

    It is a very funny clip but I wish the YouTuber had not credited Mariah Carey for Harry Nilsson’s song – he wrenched that song from his soul, Carey only sang a version of it and made money, and heaven knows what that Bulgarian girl has done to it.

I would love to hear from you
