hi, everyody knows who multilingual is BoA... but how many language have you heard her speak or write??

If BoA'd learnt a new language, which language do you think she should learn?/ or you would like she to learn?

the official languages which she can communicate are:
- korean (native)
- japanese (fluent)
- english (...)
- chinese (intermediate ??)

but she also knows about other languages such as:

spanish

- french 

 

 

VIDEOS

Um...LOL, BoA's not fluent in English. In very recent interviews, she says that the hardest part of filming "Make Your Move" was having to speak English. She had to translate the script, just to understand the dialogue. And even in that interview, her English was very halting, with several glaring grammatical errors.

BoA can carry on a casual, superficial English conversation, but she would have to study for years before becoming fluent. :)

Her Korean is spot on (obviously :lol:) and so is her Japanese although she did struggle a little in interviews when she went back to Japan to promote Only One because she hadn't been active there for so long. She's not fluent in English but her English is very good, especially considering the little time she's spent on English projects. She makes a couple of mistakes here and there but nothing bad. As for her Chinese I'd say BoA is definitely a beginner. Chinese fans have often commented on her lack of Chinese skills in the past especially when it comes to her accent. I don't speak chinese myself but even I could tell you her pronunciation is bad.

For me it would be nice for her to learn portuguese LOOL but I'm realist. I know she won't. But I'm happy with her English because it's good enough for me to talk to her (something that's kind of hard to happen but you know, let a girl dream). But yeah her Japanese is good, her English is okay and I have no idea about her Chinese.

Her Chinese is just beginner. I think the only thing I can understand from her is "I am BoA" from when she had that interview with Show Luo. At least I think that was Show Luo. It's kinda like when I'm trying to speak Japanese but I really repeat the general phrases from Japanese 101 videos or learn from watching anime in Japanese. Plus, my mom doesn't understand what BoA's singing when she heard her sing "I'm Sorry" and my mom knows Cantonese, Mandarin and Vietnamese.

Oh, I see. So besides not being very good a Chinese her pronunciation is not that good. Well, I personally love Chinese, but don't really like BoA's Chinese versions. I would like to see her get better though ^-^ and record more stuff in Chinese

Atlantis Princess is BoA's best Chinese song because her pronunciation is considerably better than in any of her other Chinese songs :)
