Whoever thought that I would find myself watching cheesy Mexican soap operas in Georgia? Certainly not I. They don’t get any less cheesy here then they are in the states either. I wouldn’t mind so much if I could actually watch them and hear what’s going on because that way I could practice my Spanish but…they are dubbed over in Georgian. I can kind of hear the Spanish in the background but not enough to really help.
The best part is that my eight year old host-brother is crazy about these shows. He gets so frustrated when my host-sister changes the channel to something interesting like the news. Even though we watch the news in Georgian I would rather watch that than these soap operas.
Georgia also dubs cartoons. I think it would be a great way for my host-brother to hear more English but I guess those channels don’t come in in English. But I’m pretty sure you can get them in Russian and Turkish if you really want. I just don’t understand how you can watch the same cartoon is 3 different languages but never actually watch it in its originally language, English. Well actually most of it is probably comes from Japan so really it should be in Japanese.
