I am from Angola Born in Huambo but I live in Luanda, the only language i grew up speaking was Portuguese, I went to South Africa when I was 17 years old, I became of age there, I started to know myself there, I learned how to express myself there and I learn how to speak English there. After spending 8 years in Cape Town being around English speaking people all the time and doing all my readings and TV watching in English I found myself only thinking in English!
I could have a normal conversation in Portuguese but it was never without the odd English word thrown in much to the dismay of my non speaking family because I wouldn’t even realise I was throwing English words in until they asked me “what?”
Well, that wasn’t really a problem, (
Me being the proactive person I am decided to create another blog (www.minhavidaemluanda.wordpress.com) boy it was not a good idea! Not that the blog wasn’t good or anything, but if I can hardly keep up one blog how in the world am I going to keep two? Oh boy...
Anyway, after much consideration and thinking, I decided to Delete my Portuguese blog and keep my English Blog BUT I will write in Both Languages on one blog!!
Basically this is a BEAR WITH ME post because from now on it will be in both languages... maybe later, i will be able to see whether my readers are more fluent in English or Portuguese and stick to one language but for now i will live my double life right here!!
Have a blessed Sunday y’ all and I promise to post more often!!!
Much Love and Peace
