Xiaoma (Chinese: 小马在纽约), also known as Xiaomanyc 小马在纽, is an American YouTuber who studies many languages. Maybe I should start a YouTube channel and have a 'white Brit speaks fluent Hindi' video. If he ACTUALLY can learn a language in 2 days, then why doesn't he know more than a 100 languages? Before he started to do those "I learnt Spanish in a month" videos, I liked watching his videos. They debuted on February 11, 2019 with their first single album “IT’z Different”. Here in the United States there is no incentive to learn another language; in other countries its a necessity or even a very beneficial tool but here it doesn't advance you at all in life. Which would explain why the people he is attempting to converse with are largely indifferent or disinterested in his attempts to speak Hindi.
As someone of Indian descent, first off, I'm actually extremely proud that nobody showed a surprised nor stunned reaction in this video. Devanagari is not difficult to learn.
I was a fan when I initially started studying chinese but this new cringey stuff lost me. Him, a white man, goes to surprise people who are Chinese by speaking their language to make them feel at home and to make sure they have a big surprise. Posted by 3 months ago. Every discussion like this gives them more attention and seems to make a few real learners reading it less happy.
As you can see on my YouTube channel, I speak good enough Chinese to regularly confuse the heck out of native speakers (including my own in-laws).
Its the monolinguals that think he's amazing.
All are welcome, whether beginner or polyglot. I live in Dubai where many of the local Arabs speak conversational and even sometimes fluent Hindi (Dubai imports in many Indians for local work, and allows others to temporarily 'immigrate' here - I am the result of that) and there are even a fair amount of Brits here who are somewhat capable in it - the thing is you'll never see "Arab speaks fluent Hindi" or "white Brit speaks fluent Hindi" videos on YouTube. Sure it's cool that he's able to communicate in the language, but it didn't sound like he was very good at it. Czech man who speaks Czech, English, Russian, and German fluently? If you do click on that link, make sure to dislike the video, More posts from the languagelearning community. The neighborhood may have been Indian at some point but as of now it's more a mix of Bangladeshi and Nepali/Tibetan. I remember learning at least 5x more Japanese in 1 month than Hindi he learned in this video but anyways I don't want to dwell on that. I just don't understand why he doesn't stick to Chinese or pick something new and actually stick to it.
It feels very humiliating and gross to see a white guy who's well off to have all this money travelling this world, hiring dozens of hours of tutors in two days, and picking up conversational phrases in a few languages trying to come off as big and grand in the presence of people who not only speak great English, but also their Indian language (and possibly several, that too). 2) He's targeting shoppers and workers in his videos. Whoaaaaaaaa no way dude!
Edit: title of the video is "Learning Chinese: From ZERO to interpreter (in 5 Years)". I’m Xiaoma, real name Arieh Smith. They make too much money off of these to stop because of a vocal minority like us. Nobody cares. She is known for her stylish makeup and for posting comedy, dance, challenge and transition videos to her avani account.
Most are above all just trying to earn money or satisfy their egos without really giving the viewer anything. It's far too formal. and "i like x". You can like, order Chinese food in Chinatown and stuff, This is a common sentiment throughout the language learning community with him and others (looking at you Ikenna). I'm not saying it's easy - no language is - but it is learnable and especially at a basic level the grammar is straightforward, which makes it quite possible to get started in basic conversation. Probably not the best place to try out Hindi. Very few actually are! Also, I feel that all these videos could've been successful (in terms of ethical boundaries and entertainment) if he had just done research and went it to it with different intentions. I feel like I missed the boat. You can learn how it works in an afternoon. What are you gonna do. stand out in YouTube. Also completely incorrect for him to say that Hindi just uses English substitutes for certain words like "American food", you can very easily say that in Hindi, it's just that with the prevelence of English in India especially in urban areas people tend to mix in English words in everyday conversation. I mean, I can't, not even close, and I struggle with some aspects of basic conversation. If he wanted to actually be even remotely genuine with this he should have at least attempted this with Bengali which is a lot more prevelant in that neighborhood. He clearly didn’t research India at all and equated certain dishes and Hindi with the whole countries culture, even tho it’s linguistically and ethnically diverse as fuck. Perhaps we could just have a community list of "trash youtubers not worth watching" in the wiki? The click-baity title annoyed me right from the start. -Excuse me, ye kya hai? Hindi is not a 'completely different' language (to English). But those youtubers are not primarily a part of any real learning community, so this is no "drama entering the community". I've been learning languages for years, been an active part of a few online communities, and achieved quite a lot (but no, I am not a superpolyglot). Press J to jump to the feed. All these videos are cut and spliced to make it look good. -Dhanyavaad, dhanyavaad, thank you. I have problems with some of the retroflex sounds, but other than that, most of Hindi's phonemes are comfortably pronounced by English speakers.
