English = Time + Tenacity + Tears

BY ŞEYI ADEBANJO
@ VOL 133 ON FEB 24, 2016

“English is a frankenstein's monster. It's a hodgepodge abomination of rules that we break all the time.”

In English = Time + Tenacity + Tears from PechaKucha Night Tokyo’s 133rd Volume, student and literary enthusiast Ṣeyi Adebanjo, discusses her frustration with the “global language”. The real world is full of puzzles, all of which are more or less systematic. To her the English language itself is the most complex puzzle of all. Though she found learning the convoluted language to be a challenge, her tenacity as both a bibliophile and writer eventually paid off; the end product was worth it.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, April 22nd, 2016.
