​Trying to Be Cool

Image courtesy of www.wikihow.com

After spending an hour just to tape a fifteen-minute interview, Program Host (PH) heaved a sigh of relief, as Young Star (YS) gave him a headache as they talked. YS was invited to promote her latest project and PH had his list of questions that bordered on her life and projects as well. The solid fanbase of YS would guarantee viewership and ratings for the show of PH.

As the interview progressed, PH was surprised that YS was responding in English. PH continued with his spontaneous style even though speaking in English was not usual for YS. Then, PH realized that YS was trying very hard to use hifalutin words. While the words sounded impressive, YS was using the words wrongly. Hence, her answers were incomprehensible and were not at all answering the questions properly. Moreover, her grammar errors were disturbing. Being comfortable in English, PH realized that YS was trying to be whom she was not by speaking in English, a language she was obviously not comfortable with.

Ever since YS was discovered, her appeal rested in the way her fans viewed her. Coming from humble beginnings, YS embodied every child’s dream, as she managed to rise above poverty and finally gave her family members a home they deserved. Her hard work in her network is admirable, as she is considered a bankable star even without a loveteam partner. She tried singing, dancing, and acting, and she was successful. Years passed and YS managed to overcome intrigues that crossed her path. However, she needed to sustain her status, as one is only as good as his/her last project.

The basic option to keep fans interested in her was to keep up with the changing times. Hence, the network decided to take a risk by giving YS a challenging role. YS took her role seriously and even off camera, she continued to practice what she has been learning in a present project.

However, today’s celebrities cannot be just contented with appearances in one medium. So, YS ventured into various media channels and her latest project booked her an appearance in the show of PH. YS is not new to being interviewed, but what was off was her attempt at responding in English. During the interview, which was taped, PH thought that YS understood his questions in English. As her answers started to drift away, PH suddenly turned to the camera and asked for the interview to pause for a moment. Nonetheless, a commitment had to be honored, and walking out of an interview out of frustration is not his style. After a few minutes, the interview resumed, but at the back of the mind of PH was the length of airtime that had to be edited out to protect YS from making a fool of herself.

  2. Nothing wrong with trying to speak in English even though you're not born or grew up with it. Actually Foreign Language teachers encourage their pupils to practise speaking even when they make mistakes as it's a way to get used to using the language.

    1. 1:04am, nothing wrong with speaking english. Practice makes perfect. Wrong lang sa part ni YS, she used hifalutin words to make her appear "smart, scholarly or cool" to the point na wala ng sense ang sagot niya.

    2. basa basa din baks! ok lang mali mali grammar kaso mali ang paggamit ng hyfalutin words to the point daw na incomprehensible na sya.

    3. True ka. Actually, by using the language more often and trying not to be conscious of your mistakes is the best approach. If you hear Americans speak you will say we Filipinos are better off when it comes to grammar. It's just that we are conscious of committing mistakes and the more we are conscious, the more we make mistakes. Ignore the people around you who love to pick up on everybody's mistakes.

    5. Hindi naman yata kailangan mag English sa project ni K ngayon so I doubt siya tog. Sabi sa BI eh

      Delete
  5. K? Just a guess because she is not that articulate in some of her posts. There's nothing wrong trying to speak in English, but if you're being interviewed and you are asked in Filipino, please reply in Filipino. For the sake of being polite and respectful, respond in the same language used by the other person.

  10. Wow sino itey? Clue naman kay YS huhu. Si PH I guess si B.

    There's nothing wrong in speaking in english paminsan minsan para maenhance yung dila at utak sa pagsasalita nito. Pero syempre ugaliin munang unawaing mabuti ang ibig sabihin ng bawat english word na nais mong gamitin para iwas kahihiyan. Di porket maganda pakinggan o ipronounce, eh keribels nang sabihin kahit waley kang alam sa kung ano ba talaga ang ibig sabihin nun.
