開始囉,開始囉!1-2-3!


大家好!我是元元


我今天會講到一個


我通常不會講太多的主題


我會講到交往


還有我會講到我為什麼覺得


我可能沒有辦法跟法國的女生在一起


你如果看到最後也可能會學一些


我還沒講過的事情


好,開始囉!


好,第一就是


我已經不是法國人


對啊,你知道嗎?我已經離開法國12年


因為我在台灣9年


然後我之前也住在瑞典3年


所以其實我大人的時間


我都不是在法國過的


你知道這個時間其實我的生活的


差不多3分之1


超多的


而且如果


從18歲,從獨立的時候


開始算的


那我大部分的生活


都不是在法國過的


其實我一直覺得我像海綿一樣


海綿會吸收水


那我住在國外


也會吸收


也會被我的環境影響到


我很會學別人的說法


還是別人的做法


所以其實我這些年


慢慢的變


假的法國人


法國的習俗,法國的文化


我是大概知道的


但是我覺得我沒有很熟悉


基本上我現在已經不太清楚法國女生


喜歡什麼,還是


對他們來說有什麼重要


有什麼興趣


因為我覺得我現在的生活的興趣


跟一般的法國人


可能差很多


我真的沒有辦法想像


我可以跟法國的女生在一起


太陌生的


很奇怪,對不對?


那第二個原因是


第二個原因我覺得是


我會對不同的文化


不同的語言非常有興趣


所以對我來說,異國的交往


不同國家的人交往


其實會更有趣的


你有那麼多可以學的東西


除了學那個人,當然


但是那個人也有她自己的文化


自己的語言


我覺得對兩個人來說是更有趣的


我知道有一些外國人就算住在台灣


還是會想要一個


他們的國家的女朋友


沒錯,我覺得這個可能要


看個性,看每個人的興趣


有一些人可能也會不喜歡


語言不同,很多誤會


很多文化的差別


他們可能會覺得很煩


所以我覺得真的要看每個人的個性


我的話我覺得這樣是更有趣的


我現在覺得我沒辦法有一個


法國女朋友是因為


我是決定要離開法國


我如果在台灣


還是想要一個法國女朋友,那


我會問自己為什麼來台灣呢?


好,下一個就是:


登愣!你懂嗎?


其實我的後面是花


然後這個,愛心的心


花心


對,我聽說法國人很花心


我覺得蠻可怕的,所以


我不會想跟法國女生在一起


欸,這是開玩笑啦!


我真的不懂為什麼法國人有


這個刻板印象


其實我覺得所有的國家的


的人都一樣啦


有一些人會做壞事


有一些人會很乖


我真的覺得沒有一個國家比較多啦


我在台灣聽了很多劈腿的故事好不好


所以我覺得,為什麼


法國人有這個刻板印象?


我知道有一些法國人劈腿啦


但是我也知道有一些台灣人劈腿


所以我覺得差不多


這個其實是我在台灣


一個不喜歡的部分


很多人會常常提到


“欸,法國人不是很花心嗎?”


不OK我覺得


然後我在這邊也想分享一下關於


台灣有一個字是ㄈㄈ尺


這個字其實我一直都不知道是一個不好的字


可能不應該要說的字


因為這個字其實來自英文


CCR


CCR就是Cross Cultural Romance(異國愛情)


或是Cross Cultural Relationship(異國交往)


然後其實它的意思蠻簡單的,只是


不同國家的人交往


就這樣,很簡單的


基本上這個字是


應該是講述


台灣的女生跟外國男生


交往


然後有人會覺得這樣不好,這樣不對


然後我聽說這樣的女生


有時候也會被台灣人罵


說你幹嘛跟外國人在一起,之類的


很多女生會覺得:XXXXXXXX 你如果是外國人我不太會想靠近你


XXXXXXXX


但是我只覺得有這樣的想法蠻無聊的


你幹嘛去管別人的事情?


好,那最後一個部分是:


好啦,我講到這些事情


我相信很多人一定會對我有一些問題


這個我通常喜歡有一點的隱私


因為我覺得當YouTuber已經


常常拍影片


我感覺到已經沒有太多的隱私了


大家都知道,都會看到我的生活怎麼樣


所以我還是喜歡保持一點的隱私


但是呢!我今天會回答你們的幾個問題


有沒有交過台灣的女朋友


有


我覺得台灣的女生怎麼樣?


我其實沒有很喜歡這個問題


因為我覺得不要以偏概全


每個人都不一樣


每個人的個性,的興趣,的生活都不一樣


所以問這個問題代表的是


台灣的女生都一樣嗎?


我覺得不是


不過我可以說的是


我感覺到自己蠻幸運的


我會不會想要跟台灣的女生結婚?


我覺得做這個決定的時間


還沒到


所以我目前不用考慮到那裡了


但是我覺得幾年後再說吧


不過如果要說實話


我不知道會不會一直住在台灣


但是如果有一天離開台灣


我相信不會自己一個人離開


好,那最後呢


好,我今天想跟你分享一件事情


我。。。


我打開了YouTube頻道會員的功能!


頻道會員是什麼?


你如果對我的頻道有興趣


還是你如果想支持我


那你可以當我的頻道的會員


我會跟你分享更多的影片


還有常常會po一些


專屬的照片和文章


這些東西只有會員才看得到


你當會員會看到更多關於我的事情


還有我會分享更多


我的生活的細節


會員也會有機會跟我說想聽什麼主題


還是想聽關於我一些文化的


的部分,然後我會直接


跟他們分享關於這個主題


分享我的經驗,分享我的看法


然後另外一個好處是我可以用


會員費


買更好,更專業的裝備


還是安排


更專業,或是更大規模的影片


所以我覺得會員的功能會幫我


繼續做更專業的影片


你如果有興趣的話可以去我看的頻道的頁面


去看 “加入會員” 的功能


看看有沒有興趣


好,這個影片到這裡


希望你喜歡,然後跟你說下禮拜見!


掰掰!

OK, let's start, 1-2-3!


Hello everyone! I'm Yuan Yuan


Today I will talk about


A topic I usually don't talk much about


I will talk about relationships


And I will talk about why I think that


I think I couldn't have a French girlfriend


And if you watch until the end, you may learn a few


more things about me


OK, let's start


The first reason is


I am no longer French


Yeah, you know, I already left France 12 years ago


I have been in Taiwan for 9 years


And I lived in Sweden for 3 years before


So basically most of my adult time


I was not in France


Actually, those 12 years represent about


a third of my life


It's crazy


And if


You start counting from 18 years old, since I was independant


then


pretty much all of my life


was spent outside France


Actually I always feel I am like a sponge


A sponge absorbs water


Well, when I live abroad


I also absorb


I get influenced a lot by the abroad lifestyle


I copy people's way of talking


Or people's way of doing things


So all those years


I basically became


a fake French person


French habits, French culture


I know more or less


But not really in detail


Basically I'm not really sure what French girls


like, or what


is important to them


their interests


Because my own interests


are very different from


french people in general


I really can't imagine myself


together with a French girl


it feels so strange


Weird right?


The second reason is


the second reason I think


I am really interested in


other cultures and languages


For me, a relationship with someone from a different country


having a girlfriend from another country


makes everything much more interesting


Because there is so much to learn


In addition to learning about that person, of course


There is also learning their culture


or their language


I think it is a very interesting thing for both people


I know some foreigners, even though they live in Taiwan


They still want to be


with a girl from their own country


I think it depends on


people's personality, and interests


Some people maybe don't like


different languages, too many misunderstandings


Or too many cultural differences


They may feel it's annoying


I think it depends on each person's personality


For me, I think it makes everything more interesting


I think I couldn't have a


French girlfriend because


I decided to leave France


If I am in Taiwan


And look for a French girlfriend, well


I would ask myself: "Why did I come to Taiwan then?"


Okay, the next one is:


Do you get it?


There are flowers behind me


And this is a heart


flower + heart in Chinese also means "unfaithful" (it's a pun)


Yeah, I heard that French people are unfaithful


I think it's scary, so


I don't want to be with a French girl


Hey, this is a joke!


I really do not understand why there is this


stereotype about French people


Actually, I think people of all countries


Are more or less the same


Some people do bad things


Some people are good


I don't think some countries are worse than others


I heard a lot of cheating stories in Taiwan, so


I think, why is it


That French people have this stereotype?


I know some French people who have been cheating


But I also know some Taiwanese who have been cheating


So I think it's pretty much the same


Actually, this is one of the things that


I don't like in Taiwan


A lot of people often mention


"Oh, you are French, are French people unfaithful?"


I think that's not cool


And I want to talk about something else


Taiwan has a word, which is ㄈㄈ尺


Actually I didn't know it's a bad word


It's a word that you shouldn't say


Because it basically comes from English


CCR


CCR means Cross Cultural Romance


Or Cross Cultural Relationship


The meaning is very simple, it is


People from different countries, who are in a relationship


It's very simple


Basically this word


mostly refers to


relationship between a Taiwanese girl and


a foreigner guy


And some people think it's not good, it's not right


I heard some girls


get scolded by Taiwanese


for being together with a foreigner


Many girls think that if you are a foreigner


They don't want to get too close to you, because they are worried they will get criticism


I just think those people are boring


Why do you care about other people's business?


OK, the last part is


OK, I have talked about those things


I think many people have a few questions for me


I usually like to have some privacy


Because I think as a YouTuber I already


record videos quite often


I already don't have so much privacy


People know and can see most of my life


So I like to keep a bit of privacy


But today I will answer a few questions


Have I ever had a Taiwanese girlfriend?


Yes


How are Taiwanese girls?


I don't really like this question


Because I think you shouldn't generalize


Everyone is different


Everyone has a different personality, interests, life


So asking this question insinuates that


Taiwan girls are all the same?


I don't think it is true


But what can I say is that


I feel I have been lucky


Would I marry a Taiwanese girl?


I think the time to answer this question


has not arrived yet


So I don't need to think about that yet


But we will see in a few years


But I could say honestly


I don't know if I will always live in Taiwan or not


but if one day I have to leave Taiwan


I don't think that I would leave alone


OK, and finally


OK, today I want to tell you something


I...


I turned on the YouTube channel membership feature!


What is "Channel Membership"?


If you are interested in my channel


Or if you want to support me


You can become a member of my channel


I will share more videos with you


And I will also post


some photos and articles


Those things, only members can see


As a member, you will se more things about me


And I will share more


of my daily life


You will also have the opportunity to let me know what topic you would like me to talk about


Or discuss some particular cultural aspects


And I can directly


share with the members


sharing my experience or my point on view


An additional benefit is that I can use


the revenue from memberships


to buy better gear


or arrange


more professional, plan better videos


So I think this Membership feature will help me


continue to improve my videos


if you are interested, you can go to my channel page


And check out the "become a member" feature


And see if you are interested


OK, that's it for today's video


I hope you like it, and I will see you next week!


Bye bye!

开始啰,开始啰! 1-2-3!


大家好!我是元元


我今天会讲到一个


我通常不会讲太多的主题


我会讲到交往


还有我会讲到我为什么觉得


我可能没有办法跟法国的女生在一起


你如果看到最后也可能会学一些


我还没讲过的事情


好,开始啰!


好,第一就是


我已经不是法国人


对啊,你知道吗?我已经离开法国12年


因为我在台湾9年


然后我之前也住在瑞典3年


所以其实我大人的时间


我都不是在法国过的


你知道这个时间其实我的生活的


差不多3分之1


超多的


而且如果


从18岁,从独立的时候


开始算的


那我大部分的生活


都不是在法国过的


其实我一直觉得我像海绵一样


海绵会吸收水


那我住在国外


也会吸收


也会被我的环境影响到


我很会学别人的说法


还是别人的做法


所以其实我这些年


慢慢的变


假的法国人


法国的习俗,法国的文化


我是大概知道的


但是我觉得我没有很熟悉


基本上我现在已经不太清楚法国女生


喜欢什么,还是


对他们来说有什么重要


有什么兴趣


因为我觉得我现在的生活的兴趣


跟一般的法国人


可能差很多


我真的没有办法想像


我可以跟法国的女生在一起


太陌生的


很奇怪,对不对?


那第二个原因是


第二个原因我觉得是


我会对不同的文化


不同的语言非常有兴趣


所以对我来说,异国的交往


不同国家的人交往


其实会更有趣的


你有那么多可以学的东西


除了学那个人,当然


但是那个人也有她自己的文化


自己的语言


我觉得对两个人来说是更有趣的


我知道有一些外国人就算住在台湾


还是会想要一个


他们的国家的女朋友


没错,我觉得这个可能要


看个性,看每个人的兴趣


有一些人可能也会不喜欢


语言不同,很多误会


很多文化的差别


他们可能会觉得很烦


所以我觉得真的要看每个人的个性


我的话我觉得这样是更有趣的


我现在觉得我没办法有一个


法国女朋友是因为


我是决定要离开法国


我如果在台湾


还是想要一个法国女朋友,那


我会问自己为什么来台湾呢?


好,下一个就是:


登愣!你懂吗?


其实我的后面是花


然后这个,爱心的心


花心


对,我听说法国人很花心


我觉得蛮可怕的,所以


我不会想跟法国女生在一起


欸,这是开玩笑啦!


我真的不懂为什么法国人有


这个刻板印象


其实我觉得所有的国家的


的人都一样啦


有一些人会做坏事


有一些人会很乖


我真的觉得没有一个国家比较多啦


我在台湾听了很多劈腿的故事好不好


所以我觉得,为什么


法国人有这个刻板印象?


我知道有一些法国人劈腿啦


但是我也知道有一些台湾人劈腿


所以我觉得差不多


这个其实是我在台湾


一个不喜欢的部分


很多人会常常提到


“欸,法国人不是很花心吗?”


不OK我觉得


然后我在这边也想分享一下关于


台湾有一个字是ㄈㄈ尺


这个字其实我一直都不知道是一个不好的字


可能不应该要说的字


因为这个字其实来自英文


CCR


CCR就是Cross Cultural Romance(异国爱情)


或是Cross Cultural Relationship(异国交往)


然后其实它的意思蛮简单的,只是


不同国家的人交往


就这样,很简单的


基本上这个字是


应该是讲述


台湾的女生跟外国男生


交往


然后有人会觉得这样不好,这样不对


然后我听说这样的女生


有时候也会被台湾人骂


说你干嘛跟外国人在一起,之类的


很多女生会觉得:XXXXXXXX 你如果是外国人我不太会想靠近你


XXXXXXXX


但是我只觉得有这样的想法蛮无聊的


你干嘛去管别人的事情?


好,那最后一个部分是:


好啦,我讲到这些事情


我相信很多人一定会对我有一些问题


这个我通常喜欢有一点的隐私


因为我觉得当YouTuber已经


常常拍影片


我感觉到已经没有太多的隐私了


大家都知道,都会看到我的生活怎么样


所以我还是喜欢保持一点的隐私


但是呢!我今天会回答你们的几个问题


有没有交过台湾的女朋友


有


我觉得台湾的女生怎么样?


我其实没有很喜欢这个问题


因为我觉得不要以偏概全


每个人都不一样


每个人的个性,的兴趣,的生活都不一样


所以问这个问题代表的是


台湾的女生都一样吗?


我觉得不是


不过我可以说的是


我感觉到自己蛮幸运的


我会不会想要跟台湾的女生结婚?


我觉得做这个决定的时间


还没到


所以我目前不用考虑到那里了


但是我觉得几年后再说吧


不过如果要说实话


我不知道会不会一直住在台湾


但是如果有一天离开台湾


我相信不会自己一个人离开


好,那最后呢


好,我今天想跟你分享一件事情


我。 。 。


我打开了YouTube频道会员的功能!


频道会员是什么?


你如果对我的频道有兴趣


还是你如果想支持我


那你可以当我的频道的会员


我会跟你分享更多的影片


还有常常会po一些


专属的照片和文章


这些东西只有会员才看得到


你当会员会看到更多关于我的事情


还有我会分享更多


我的生活的细节


会员也会有机会跟我说想听什么主题


还是想听关于我一些文化的


的部分,然后我会直接


跟他们分享关于这个主题


分享我的经验,分享我的看法


然后另外一个好处是我可以用


会员费


买更好,更专业的装备


还是安排


更专业,或是更大规模的影片


所以我觉得会员的功能会帮我


继续做更专业的影片


你如果有兴趣的话可以去我看的频道的页面


去看 “加入会员” 的功能


看看有没有兴趣


好,这个影片到这里


希望你喜欢,然后跟你说下礼拜见!


掰掰!
