Pancake, she speak english too.
It's not perfect though, it has a bit of an accent, i couldn't really understand her when she was speaking in English in Muay Inter.
Still English! It seemed like she knew what she was saying and gave the feeling of it...compared to those who are reading English script and can't project their meaning. (As I've seen from watching Kdrama, oh dear lord.)
BTW, as a reminder to everyone ^__^...everyone has accents. If you live in America, you have an American accent. If you're from Canada, you have a Canadian accent. If you live in Britain, you have a British accent. If you live in ____, you have a ____ accent.
Taew has pretty good english, she was speaking it in Pieng Jai Tee Pook Pun
I don't think i have an accent but when i talk with my friend from the west, they all say i have an accent as well as they have an accent. English can be board as long as you know what you're talking about and can put word into proper SENTENCES.
Aff's voice in English is so cute! Yaya is adorable!
Thanks for the clips everyone!
fluent: Yaya Urassaya, Kim Voltemas, Chompoo Araya, Christina Aguilar, Kat English, Louis Scott, Alex Rendell, Lydia Sarunrat, Paula Taylor, Matt Peeranee, Sririta Jensen, Rome Patchata, Andrew Gregson, Jason Young, Mario Maurer, Matthew Dean, Nat Nattarhat, Paul Pattarapol, .. can't think anymore.
slight accent, but bareable: Donut Manatsanan, Margie Rasree, Tye Nattapol,
Pancake Khemanit, Min Pechaya, Aom Phiyada, Yardthip Rachapal, Nich Khun Horvejkul,
Grate Warintorn, Tengneung Kritnagan, Vee Veerapab (haven't witnessed it- but few
people have complimented his "useful" skills in English)
I forgot to add in Taew Nataporn for the second category. Her writing skills in
English (on Twitter) is fantastic! ~ Alex must've helped her out.. haha
Thank you for the awesome video of Yaya singing! ~
Yaya and I share one thing in common: Different voicing aspects and tones.
When I'm regularly talking, my friends tell me I have a soft voice (just
like Yaya)- but when I'm singing, I'm putting so much vocal and effort into
it that it becomes 'rough' and 'stronger'
i couldn't help but laugh soooo loud :lolyup: along with Ken...
i understood his ENG...but i had to listen to it a couple times due to the
volume..its understandable..good enough for meee
OMG! I laughed so loud, it scared my mom who's sitting across the hall :lmao3: I remember watching this. Ken has the funniest laugh ever. How could anyone watch that and not laugh.
"How could anyone watch that and not laugh."
haahah i agree..every time i watch his bloopers too;;
Wow, I'm not amazed that Thai celebrities can speak English, I'm amazed that this Taiwanese fan club has been able to meet so many Thai celebs and has gotten them to record greetings! That takes some guts!
I love Paul's line "I'm surprised that you even know me!" something to that effect...LOL...those Taiwanese fans, almost as involved as kpop fans...hehehe...I'm not hating, I'm just saying they are very bold. Something I wish I was.
All those recorded greetings tell me that Thai celebs are very personable. I don't know if they're just afraid to speak in English or just very caught off guard that there are people outside of Thailand who know who they are...some clips are very short, and I have to chuckle b/c they are very well spoken in front of the Thai media, but some are very flustered when a foreign fan approaches them. Think about it, they can handle a media frenzy, but not a unknown fan w/ a camera. I find it endearing that they are people too and have insecurities when they're not in their element.
I almost want to go myself to Thailand and record my own Thai Celeb Greetings, TCG...that'd be quite the project. Can you imagine Sarnworld presents "TCG: Thai Celeb Greetings to Sarnies all over the US"...I most want to know what they think of the obsession they help to feed in drama crazy Sarnies...me being one of them!
Uh, i am sure Nichkhun should be in the fluent catagory not the slight accent/bearable accent. rome's english isn't that fluent, he has an accent. i think chompoo has a accent too. Tata young is fluent and so is Hugo Jakrapong
I think Hugo have English accent more than Thai accent because his dad is British and his mom is more English than Thai. Hugo great-great grandfather is Chulalongkorn or Rama V, King of Thailand. Paula Taylor have an Australian accent, Kelly Tanapat have an American accent because he is born in the States, Sara Malakul have an English accent, Amy Klinpatroom speaks with American accent bc her mom is American, Araya have accent with thai because I think she lives in Thailand all her life. Cee siwat can speak really good English but with American dialect. Bee Namthip can speak good English from following her twitter page so I think she probably talk a lot
with her bf Kelly. A lot of half-breeds stars are bilingual or trilingual. I know Chakrit is very fluent because he will speak it all time if he is not require to speak thai. Kimberly said they have conversations in English not thai.
YASO, I love your idea: TCG
I found Aff to be so cute and endearing in her little clip. Her voice when she speaks English is just cute. I wish I had guts to do what those fans do/did too.
Jennifer Politanont speaks great English, she spoke it in TMTJ.
