LANGUAGE BARRIER

I heard Erik listening to this tonight and thought, "Wow, my Spanish is really good! I understand everything he's saying!" until I went into the room and saw that the title of the video was "One Semester of Spanish Love Song." Talk about a blow to my ego!




Here's the French equivalent. I think it's just as funny as the video above and probably even more so for anyone who speaks French. (Am I the only one out there that has seen the 1960's French musical, Les Parapluies de Cherbourg? This video made me want to watch it tonight.)

  1. Jake loves flight of the conchords a lot. That video is probably the only one I've enjoyed. Pretty funny. The spanish one is great too. I love when he almost knocks over the vases. And I LOVE his unbuttoned shirt. Good stuff.

  3. Hey Cristin,
    Actually, for the record (but not to sound like a jerk) the phrase really is silver-tongued.
    I like the spanish video a lot. Thanks for checking out my blog! :o) It made me really happy to have a comment from you. I really hope I can keep it going throughout my mission. Are you gonna be able to make it to the temple on saturday do you think?

  4. Silver Tongue,

    Sadly, I'll have to miss the session to watch Luke so Erik can attend. (I'm going to go to another session by myself later that day). I'll definitely be there when you get out of the temple though.

    Yeah, I was really surprised to find your blog! Erik will be happy when I show it to him too.

  5. Love it! I'm so glad people find this fun videos and post them on their blogs. I'm a YouTube-ily challenged.

  6. The Spanish love song sure puts into perspective just how much you DON'T know and how much sense you don't make when you speak the oh so few phrases you know. I need to take more classes . . .

  7. That french movie was a delight! I haven't heard of the parapluie movie--is it common (i.e. could I rent it from my local blockbuster)? Because if you recommend it, I will follow blindly...

  8. Love both videos. I am going to start singing the Spanish one around town.

  10. This was really funny, but I do have to say that Spanish 101 has helped me tremendously working on my patients at school. Un momento, la professora, un doctor, tenies duele?, yo hablo espaniol un pocito, and I have now learned saca la lingua (stick out your tongue), abra (open) cierra la boca (close your mouth) :) thanks spanish 101! Now if I can some how incorporate "yo vivo in la casa roja!" Dang, I've got to work that in somehow.
