On a recent trip to the United States, Korean streamer HAchubby sat down with Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys for a broadcast and shocked the Twitch star with how much her chat has influenced her English skills.

HAchubby was one of the breakout channels of Twitch in 2019, as the lovable personality grew her following by learning to speak English with her viewers.

Explaining, the Korean exclaimed, “In eight months stream, I’m just learning kappa, MonkaS…” which caused the Offline TV streamer to laugh as she rattled off popular Twitch lingo.

She then pointed out “This is my English! I can’t talk normal human!” which caused her friend to break down into hysterics as she couldn’t stop laughing at how much chat had shaped her second language.

Poki told the streamer that chat is not the best place to learn things, because it’s mostly memes. And instead gave her advice on how to better learn a new language.

“What you need to do is watch English TV with subtitles. It’s so good, and helps so much. If you move to Los Angeles, you would learn English in six months. Done!” she said.

HAchubby seemed shocked by this and exclaimed “seriously?” to which the Twitch star replied “If you are in the environment, so fast!”

Despite English being a second language, HAchubby actually impressed Pokimane with how much she already knew, even if a lot of it was influenced by meme and Twitch lingo.

At the time of writing, the Korean has over 160,000 followers, which is an astonishing number considering a year ago she had under 600 viewers, making her growth all the more impressive.

Popular Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel lost it after achieving an incredible Minecraft speedrun time. The former Overwatch pro hilariously called out fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors, and challenged him to beat his record.

For many, xQc has become the face of Twitch over the last two years. The former Overwatch pro is one of the most followed channels on the platform, and consistently pulls in 30-40k viewers each time he goes live.

After months of previous attempts – some that ended in disaster – the stars finally aligned for Lengyel on October 13 when he managed to complete the title incredibly fast.

Using the Nether bed trick to slay the Ender Dragon quickly, the former Overwatch pro was able to take down the final boss and achieve a speedrun record of just 33 minutes. “Holy s**t!” he screamed as beast died.

Elated, the star exploded in celebration over his new time. “33! Beat that s**t!” He then hilariously called out Forsen who has also been speedrunning Minecraft. “Beat it, Forsen! Beat it! 33:49! Nearly sub-30!” he said, slamming his fists on the desk.

xQc challenged the fellow Twitch personality to attempt to beat his record. “Beat that, baby! Forget it. Forget variety, Forsen. It will take months to beat that s**t!  Forget the variety streams, dude.”

According to Lengyel, everything seemed to just click and fall into place during his latest Minecraft run. He was even able to achieve a “perfect” kill of the Ender Dragon using his strategy, which he had been practicing in the past month.

On October 14, Forsen responded to the challenge simply stating, “Alright. Alright. Let’s do it!” Only time will tell if the Swede will be able to match or beat xQc’s incredible 33-minute time, but the rivalry has been entertaining to say the least.
