What makes the difference between an international person who wants to learn bahasa Malaysia and a local people who wants to learn a dialect? On top of it, it's all about learning and practicing.
For some undescribable reason, I currently love to speak in Kelantanese dialect. Be it verbal or written, I am trying my best to learn that language. The dialect is so unique in a way it has it's own way of pronunciation and intonation.
I am silently quite pissed off when my effort to practice is being misunderstood, unappreciated, and underestimated. Note the word silently there, because for how and what ever people would react towards me when I speak Kelantanese dialect, I always smile. :-)
Can't we be more supportive? I'm learning through practice, people. Teach me, not insult me.
