So like the other day we were like talking with my friend in the office. And she was like talking really fast and all cause she’s like from the US as in she like studied there. How cool is that! Its like super incredible, right? I was telling her like how amazing it is to like study in America and stuff. And she was like yea its like so amazing. So we like went on and on like talking about studying in the US and stuff. Like super cool and all. You have no idea how long the conversation like went for. It like went on for like hours and hours. In fact I was like seriously we need to like stop talking and like go home right now because it was like getting really dark outside and like we wouldn’t like get a jav and all. It was like really cool talking to her.
That there is a typical (my version) American jibberish. Plus the hands waving and everything! Notice something? So many like likes! I know…its like super annoying isn’t it? Like for real! (there I go again!)
To be honest, most of my English is self taught. Self taught through watching lots of TV. I love TV. I am a TV addict. I love the programs, the documentaries (some!)…i mean, what’s not to love? Basically about 50% of my really good and clean English is learnt from watching TV. And I know I repeated myself.
I love KTN. But they have flooded us with stuff from the US way too much! I mean, all we get is ngwe ngwe ngwe -ing stuff! And the above type of conversation can be found there. But lemme not hate on them too much. I still love KTN programs. I think its a nice selectionn.
On the flip side, they (KTN) are trying to diversify the programs by bringing South African, Mexican and even Kenyan programs. Sadly, IMO, bringing “Olivirdate Jamas” was influenced by all the hype created by Citizen TV and NTV for such telenovela. Still, bringing the SA stuff is quite nice. I think “The Lab” and “Jacob’s Cross” are good productions.
And there you have it Ladies and Gentlemen. There is my two-cents. Hmmm… be that as it may, sometimes I don’t trust myself enough to come up with what I would call “super-posts” but hey, this is my space and here I post things my way. It may not be the best way, the most conventional way or the way it should be but…its mine. And in the end, I will be accountable.
Next post will focus on activism and visibility or the lack thereof.
