为什么用中文说唱？！Why rap in Chinese？
Learning a language is a journey. There are all kinds of twists, turns, dead-ends and even accidents along the way. What keeps us learning is the enjoyment, which rapping delivers.
In Slovak there is a proverb: "The more languages you know, the more human you are". To speak another language, you need to loosen up and change your personality to adapt. Pretending to be a rapper helps you get through the awkwardness.
Speaking well requires lots of repetition. How can you make that fun, rather than repetitive and dull? By practising your rap until it sounds smooth.
Independence in learning
We learn languages to express our own ideas, not those suggested by a textbook, a teacher, or an exam. Get a theme, get an idea, and go write a rap about it. You'll find the words you need in the process.
This is how it feels to rap in Chinese!
