Hi everyone, just a really quick blog post today to share with you the adorable Cantonese skills of a very English chef: Jamie Oliver!
Mr Oliver is preparing for World Domination. If you don't know this guy, a quick summary of Jamie Oliver would be "laid-back British chef, extremely enterprising and loves to portray himself as a geezer". Geezer is a regional word from Southern England, meaning "dude". Jamie is a dude.
Jamie is now opening a restaurant in Hong Kong, and decided to speak some Cantonese to promote it. See how he did:
Lessons to be learnt from this?
- Your Business Should Export
- Speaking Another Language Helps You In Business
- Speaking Another Language Should Be Fun
- Everyone loved that he tried, and no one minded his mistakes
Take a lesson from Jamie Oliver there, and not even a cooking one. This is a person who goes out and just tries. More, please!
I want to know what you think: Who are your favourite famous language speakers? Have you ever tried to open an Italian submarine in Hong Kong?
