I saw that you are anchoring Taiwanese. Do you dislike it because it is difficult? I haven't heard your Taiwanese actually, but I kind of think Formosa TV's anchors generally are an octave to high with their Taiwanese. I dunno why, but it's just weirdly high-pitched, especially for Taiwanese. Anyways, cool blog.
Yes, I dread it because I can hardly speak it and I'm not improving at all because they only have me do it once in a blue moon.As for the high octave Taiwanese reading, I think you're right. Of the regular female Taiwanese anchors, one just has a naturally high pitched voice, but the two other ones have normal voices, and their reading voice stays normal. But for the voices behind the news stories, those are a big high indeed. But only one of the ladies who does the voice actually raises her pitch. Everyone else just seems to have high pitched voices...Interesting that you noticed!
