American here. Ask me anything.

Hey, I am Isaac from the United States. I have used 4chan for many years. I just started to learn Japanese, so I decided to check out 5ch. I have only studied Japanese for 1 month so far, so I don't understand it yet.

Feel free to ask me for help with English, questions about America (culture, politics, etc.), or anything else you want. I will answer almost ANY question.

I will only reply in English.

The only person who claims the said sentence is "grammatically incorrect"
is the dimit weasel >>16 alone.

Don't pay attention to him. He is a known senile mental case on this forum.
Nobody takes him seriously.

51 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2018/04/16(月) 13:34:36.39 ID:JbT5fJRL0.net
This idiot writes some of the weirdest English
sentences and still has audacity to call someone
else (who is most likely a native English speaker
on all counts) "grammatically incorrect" and
"awkward." Talk about "the most stupid person."

I have a question for you guys. It's about listening comprehension.

Deer Hunter finale (a videoclip lasting only three seconds)

Without even knowing the context of the movie, after simply listening to that
particular three-second videoclip, all the English native speakers would agree
that the woman in the above videoclip did say, "It's been such a GRAY day."
She can't have said "GREAT day." Am I right?

53 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2018/04/17(火) 01:19:55.53 ID:sstF3sti0.net
You can say that again.

54 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2018/04/17(火) 13:13:01.12 ID:QM3UuqJM0.net
I interpret that as "great day" rather than "gray day" without context. The perceived likelihood of someone uttering "it's been such a great day" is much larger than someone uttering "it's been such a gray day."
It also sounds like to me that there is a slight upturn in her voice right before the word day along with a strong plosive sound which makes me think that she's saying great.

I visited Reddit. It seems non-native speakers are rating each other.
As a result, some posts are being rated high even though they contain explanations that is difficult to understand for native speakers.
On the contrary, valid explanations are rated low sometimes.

Rating shouldn't be cared so much at that site?
Maybe I'm not very much suited to the site.

Here's not safe site.

60 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2018/04/19(木) 13:23:08.29 ID:3LUqJMpy0.net
WTF are you talking about?

Reddit is just a webforum where people talk about stuff like 5ch.
It's not an educational website for novice English learners like yourself.

You go there to discuss and read about various issues, not "to study English."

61 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2018/04/19(木) 18:01:24.47 ID:RwCMwHsH0.net
At least, my English is better than you. lol
It's crystal clear that your reading and writing skills are novice levels.
I don't think you even grasp what I've said in the post.
That means your reading ability is very limited.

You should at least improve your reading skill if you want to engage in conversation.

62 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2018/04/19(木) 18:04:18.61 ID:RwCMwHsH0.net

Give me a fucking break. Just look at the rubbish
that you put together at >>57. Your English is an
utter piece of crap, and you are obviously
in no position to judge someone else's English,
much less that of "native speakers" for Christ's sake.
You totally failed to understand what Reddit is
precisely because of your severely limited English
comprehension. That's more than enough evidence
to show how utterly clueless you are.

65 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2018/04/19(木) 22:19:13.70 ID:M9isUtYf0.net
What a terrible sentense.
You keep exposing your reading skill that is extremly low.
You totally miscontrued other's opinion and keep attacking in vain.
You had better focus on yourself and stop posting demeaning comments.

66 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2018/04/19(木) 22:34:30.13 ID:EEOq/1zjp.net
Hello Isaac, I have a question for you if you are still here. My question is on this commonly used phrase, which is ...

“Feel free to ask me for help with English”

Is this “English” your English (help us with your English?) or our English (help our English?)

I appreciate your answer. Thank you

67 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2018/04/19(木) 22:42:01.31 ID:M9isUtYf0.net
But I will tell you the reason why you failed to undestand the comment >>57.
You seem to think the comment come out of nowhere
and maybe misinterpreted it as something offensive.
This thread was created by a native speaker, thus most comments
were directed at him as a conversation.
All comments should be viewed in the context or you completly miscontrue.

Isaac is only a timid mouse, who do not have the confidence to verify what he said
by asking contestants at the yahoo answers thread whether his sentence is superior to mine or not.
His opinions are not worth an old song.

39名無しさん@英語勉強中 (ワッチョイ 43bd-wnac)2018/04/15(日) 11:01:35.96ID:/aQ5nzcg0>>42

Which is better, A or B below?

A. Football and Basketball are definitely two of the most popular sports in the US. (my sentence)
B. Most popular sports in the States are definitely Football and Basketball. ( Isaac's)


All the contestants except the idiot said A was better than B.

I agree with ワッチョイ 43bd-wnac.
Isaac has only to ask contestants at the yahoo answers thread whether his sentence is superior to mine or not.
That's all.

You cannot write it in English.
You are escaping from revealing your abilty while mocking other's.
That's the last thing decent man would do.
I candidly admit my English is not better than the person
but significantly better than you who brazenly write in Japnese here.

Frankly speaking, you are not entitled to participate in here.
You are just an obstacle.

Then you're 4th or 5th grade.
Again, it's far easy to spot mistakes than writing your own sentense in English.
It's a waste of time dealing with the person like you.

Too bad Isaac is gone because some nutcase scared him away.
There is no point in keeping this thread alive now. Just let it die already.

Yes, we should end this thread.

In this sentence "English" isn't owned by anyone; it's simply the concept of the English language.
If I had to pick between the two you've listed I would say the second one is the closes to the intended meaning.

>Feel free to ask me for help with my English.
This means that the speaker is stating that questions regarding his or her own English are encouraged.
The speakers English is stuff like sentence structure, word use, verb tenses, etc. that specifically the speaker uses (as opposed to anyone else's usage).

>Feel free to ask me for help with your English.
This means that the speaker is stating that questions regarding the listeners English are encouraged.
Since the speaker can't know all of the English that the listener uses, the questions could be about anyone's English.

>Feel free to ask me for help with English.
This means that the speaker is stating that questions regarding English are encouraged.
Since the questions are about English in general, it could be English etymology, phonetics, syntax, pronunciation, topics covered in classes called "English," style, usage, etc.
Although in this context, the intended meaning is probably limited to colloquial and/or formal usage as a layman probably only has a small understanding of the other topics.

>Feel free to ask me for help with my English.


I think it should be, "your English."
You would say, ""feel free to ask" if you were advising someone.
Therefore, you would be talking about them (your) - not "my."

I would like to create a sister site of this thread for foreigners learning Japanese.
Can I have a permission to copy and modify your text in >>1?
It will be a equivalent thread to r/Learn Japanese: helping learning Japanese, answering anything pertaining to Japanese culture in "ENGLISH".

And I'd like to hear others' opinions to create such a site.
Hopefully, it will be a good languages exchange platform.

93 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2018/04/22(日) 15:39:16.36 ID:JSK3ExMk0.net
why not. just go ahread and post the link here.

Threads for foreigners learning Japanese exist already in 4chan
/int/ and /jp/
But there aren't many foreigners who want to study Japanese

95 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2018/04/25(水) 14:59:00.94 ID:7UqmNjBe0.net
Another way to explain the differences between the three phrases is to view them in context.

>Feel free to ask me for help with my English.
Consider the scenario with three people: A, B, and C where A is a native English speaker and B and C are both non-native speakers with a limited grasp of the English language.
The three are in an English learning classroom during a time when students can socialize freely in English.
A and B are arguing about something, and the way B is speaking is very strange and hard to follow.
C approaches the two.
C: "Hello. What are you two doing?"
A: "We're having an argument."
C: "Oh. Do you think you two could help me with my English?"
A: "Well, I mean, feel free to ask me for help with MY English, but I'm not too sure I understand B's English myself."
I capitalized "MY" to show the emphasis that would occur in speech as this phrase will probably only ever be used when contrasting with someone else's English.
It is also kind of confrontational to whoever the contrast is made to.

>Feel free to ask me for help with your English.
>Feel free to ask me for help with English.
The context that comes to mind when reading these two sentences as is gives them an almost identical meaning.
The inclusion of "your" could possibly be seen as insulting, as the speaker is specifically singling out the listener's English ability (the listener's English is specifically bad),
but it could also be seen as a more personal version (the speaker is specifically helping the listener).

96 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2018/04/25(水) 14:59:28.86 ID:7UqmNjBe0.net
>Feel free to ask me for help with English.
This has more interpretations like in the following context. Two students A and B are having a conversation outside of class.
A: "Man, this essay is going to take such a long time; I need to compare the English, Japanese, and German languages to each other grammatically."
B: "Feel free to ask me for help with English; I took an English linguistics class last semester, so the knowledge is still fresh in my mind."
