I've been asking the same thing, and people explained it a few pages ago. Not all people in Canada learn French at school, from what I remember schools usually give students a variety of languages to choose from, so you can choose French, but you may as well learn Mandarin or German.
True! I have my theory, that staying in Korea was too hard for both of them, because of his family (I don't know I'm just guessing) and the specific role a woman needs to fulfill in Korean culture. There is an interesting book about it: "Kim Ji Young, Born 1982 ".
This is all I needed to know, thank you! I (sadly) don't know much about Canada, I just know that both French and English are official languages, so I assumed it is easy to learn both of them. Thank you for clarifying. In my country, there is only one official language, but we often learn English and German, I've also learned French in high school, and my second native language is Russian, but it's only because of my bilingual family. Learning Russian is no longer obligatory for everyone like it was for my parents and grandparents generations. Japanese is also popular nowadays and Scandinavian languages as well. I live in Uk now and I'm learning Irish because my best friend is from Ireland. Taylor has a Cantonese speaking spouse and she's not using this situation to learn the language while living in HK! It's just such a waste!
Being bilingual (or multilingual) is a great value, good job! Taylor lives in HK, she lived in Japan and she knows only one language so far. Nothing can force that girl to learn, I don't know if she is ambitious enough to encourage her children to learn Cantonese (I think offsprings will be only her responsibility, I can't imagine Tom taking the active part in their upbringing - I hope I'm wrong). I can tell she likes French (her French persona), but she never learned it. Am I wrong by thinking that learning French in Canada is easy (like finding the good teacher or native speaker)? Correct me if I'm wrong, please. P. S. I'm Polish in the UK too, and I'm from a bilingual family.
- more HK architecture, landscape - Taylor learning Cantonese or learning anything - foodie series was nice, I would definitely watch the second season of that - maybe she could visit some other nearby countries such as Singapore
