Hey!!! All you NEETs, nerds, YouTube link spammers, pedophiles, neo-Nazis,
Yukorin enthusiasts, Nanako SOS admirers, Part-Time-Preachers,
Diplomats' spoiled sons, losers who can't remember Kanji characters,
Big-boobs fans, Weeaboo from around the world, learners of Japanese
who are too lazy to update their Japanese blogs very often, cunning
linguists, stupid fan girls of Johnny's Boys, Touhou pirates, and
that electrical super-gay who suffers from mental disease - This is your thread!
Let's hope the Internet-addicted housewife will come back soon!
We all wish for permanent world peace!

- English conversation ability is not useful if lived in japan but the reading ability is very useful.
Many people try to improve colloquial conversation fluency, it is preposterous thing.
Set down the venerable burden and let your insufficient time use reading.

- Hey, wanted to make a new thread but fucked up and posted in another thread for translating Japanese to English.
Just gonna copypaste what I wrote, with some edits.
As for me, I want to know why you're interested in English. To learn the lingua franka of the world? To impress your girlfriend? Cause you have nothing better to do?
Let me know! Doesn't matter if your replies are in English or Japanese because I'll just throw it into google translate if I can't read it.
Preferably English since this is an English convo thread.

Who cares if I'm white?
- 38 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/08(日) 04:00:59.61 ID:RfmMTHyw0.net
- We don’t need condescending whites. They need to be exterminated with Koreans. They are detrimental.
- 39 ：外人 ：2019/09/08(日) 04:05:10.27 ID:ER1Czn7J0.net
...detrimental to who, might I ask?
I'm just in this thread to chat and answer potential questions you might have for a Canadian, like do we have polar bears as pets, etc.
- 40 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/08(日) 04:08:29.71 ID:RfmMTHyw0.net
- What are you? You all are detrimental to the world peace. You people and Koreans always make troubles. Read the history book...

- Canada? Hordes of Koreans live there. No good.
- 42 ：外人 ：2019/09/08(日) 04:54:55.66 ID:y9NevSAsH.net
(Phone posting cause I needed to get out of the house)
I have German heritage. I actually love korean and asian food in general and have a few korean and chinese friends, but the real issue here in Canada is the fucking chinese and the CPP's influence on the chinese communities in Canada.
While westernized chinese people aren't the big issue, misinformation spread by mainland China to mandarin speakers is just screwing up the concept of the melting pot.
We even had protests in Vancouver in favor of the CPP because of the Hong Kong situation.
- 43 ：外人 ：2019/09/08(日) 05:01:38.87 ID:y9NevSAsH.net
- Correction, CPC for my whole spiel.
Also, just wondering if you just default to sage on the board? Don't wanna be too annoying.

Cool! What kind of videos do you want to watch? North american dramas? Cartoons? Youtube videos?
I'm wanting to learn Japanese because when I graduate from university I wanna visit Japan for 3 weeks.
- 46 ：外人 ：2019/09/08(日) 07:31:21.28 ID:y9NevSAsH.net
Thought I should add my two cents to this.
Sugar activates the same receptors in the brain that cocain and heroin do.
We evolved as a species to seek out sugar because that's energy. Berries, fruit, etc. all have sugar.
Only reason why pure sugar is still legal is because there's money to be made.
High fructose corn syrup is also sugar, but is metabolized differently then cane/beat sugar. It's probably the main reason why americans are getting as fat as they are.
We're all sugar addicts. Such is the current plight of humanity.
- 47 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/08(日) 07:36:52.96 ID:vHi7m8CGd.net
YouTube videos. I watch travel videos. I can see beautiful city and beach in the world. I also watch restaurants reviews.
- 48 ：外人 ：2019/09/08(日) 08:44:54.10 ID:yld4ZIFS0.net
Which food reviewers do you watch?
The meme that is Guy Fieri? Or someone a bit more ameture?
- 49 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/08(日) 12:26:42.84 ID:VVfjIJVId.net
I type words as best pancakes, hamburger, coffee into search box. I don't have any specific youtuber I watch regularly.
Why are you interested in Japan? Are you anime fan? Is that your first time to go abroad?
- 50 ：外人 ：2019/09/08(日) 13:14:22.94 ID:ER1Czn7J0.net
I visited the US twice and Germany 3 times throughout the last decade.
Visiting Japan would be the first time going somewhere in the world alone for me.
I'm somewhat of a weeb--been doing some Gunpla and finished a Zaku II--but the language, culture, and landscapes interest me too.
Shinto temples, Mt.Fuji, various cities with it's huge metropolitan landscape, and the countrysides in between.
I'm not full-on crazy like some foreigners are, but it'd be a nice change in destination for a vacation.
If you like chatting about food and don't mind using imageboards, 4chan has a food&cooking board if you want to use that to
improve your English. The memes and colloquial might be a bit jarring at first, but I think I had that same situation with browsing 2channel.
- 51 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/08(日) 14:29:37.34 ID:SDH2Q0HQd.net
Many non native English speakers use 4channel. But their English seem almost perfect. I'll try I got much better.
I live in Tokyo. I like Koube and Hokkaido in Japan. It's beautiful as Japan.

Wouldn't adding udon to it just make it fancy ramen...?
I'm still curious why people add sage to these threads and not have your comments bump the thread.
Is it to be more polite to more active threads?

I agree. 10years ago people blame people who not to use ＊sage. In Japan, too aggressive people aren't accepted. So I use ＊sage unconsciously due to old habit.

- 68 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/09(月) 23:35:51.84 ID:FqCZUKIca.net
because it's easier and faster for me to type only lower case letters.
if it doesn't make sense, i will instantly switch to using upper case letters.
- 69 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/09(月) 23:38:55.23 ID:FqCZUKIca.net

- As far as the number of posts is concerned, there are almost no posts other than operatives'.
As a result of the operatives continuing to distort information,
the English board lost its trust and was depopulated.
It is now a waste board.
There is no writing other than the operatives' faked stories.
They operatives look so miserable.

Do schools teach computer typing in Japan? I was taught it in elementary school, and even with capitalization I have a 70 WPM typing speed.
Kek, are you that much of a conspiracy theorist?

Unless you're just meming.
Another question I want to ask this thread is the reason you might hate an ethnic group. Whites? Koreans? Dominican republicans?
- 83 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/10(火) 23:08:55.33 ID:/6EC8gUx0.net

- 86 ：外人 ：2019/09/11(水) 11:13:48.91 ID:BU7qpOkV0.net
That's great. Still I can sense quite the hostility towards Koreans in particular.
Ya know who also said that? The fucking Nazis. Don't aspire to be a Nazi.
Full Metal Jacket has quite a good scene pertaining to this.
There's a time and place for politics. This isn't one of those.
Anyone who disagrees can move over to 4chan's /pol/ board. They'll like you there.

I know it’s a sin to be super hot like me.
- 97 ：外人 ：2019/09/12(木) 22:23:12.14 ID:tmyllMW/0.net
That's an easy answer.
Humanity evolved to adapt to their climates. Everything from skin color to nether regions.
A higher surface area allows you to cool down faster as you sweat. Bigger dong, higher surface area.
Europeans had to deal with long, cold winters. Because of that, less surface area is desirable.

a little girl walked toward me alone.

Everytime I go to a local mall centre after work like at 9pm, I see some young-ish parents with a little kid like 3 or 4 years age.
This is pretty the norm in Japan now. You need to adjust to it.

Depending on location in relation to the equator, your ancestors would have gone through evolution gaining different traits.
With asians, narrow eyes and similar physiology to europeans were the favorable trait.
We have something similar in Canada for my area. These are SUVs used to suppliment ambulances and fire rescue.
Then again you said they wern't emergency services so I have no idea.

Sadly not. It's only required to learn french from grades 1 through 6. After that, it becomes optional.
Doesn't matter. Since grade 1, I was learning German in a bilingual school system my area has.
I dropped out of German in grade 12 though because I'd have to take the C level Sprachdiplom (German equivalent to N1 JLPT).
I really didn't care about having that certification since it's only useful for interpretation jobs and working/studying in Germany if you aren't a citizen.
However since I am both Canadian and German, no Sprachdiplom required.
If you don't know french, working as a public servant is close to impossible due to preferential treatment of francophones and those who speak french.
Exchange programs are amazing and fun to do. I did one in grade 8 for a trip to Germany.
Australia is a good choice too.
Their accent and slang might be difficult for ESL students to understand though.
How was your experience in Australia?

if those cars were used for emergency purposes (to suppliment ambulances and fire rescue)
they should make loud warning sounds with sirens or ask for other car's cooperation through loudspeakers or microphones.
i think those young ish parents must take better care of their children.
the children will have a difficulty breaking the bad habit when they begin to go to school.

Being Bilingual is pretty nice. I have German TV streaming so I sometimes watch german dubbed cartoons and programming. They even have dubbed anime.
Watched a couple early episodes of Bleach but the dub was a bit unbareable. When it comes to Anime I usually watch subbed content 9 times out of 10.
French pronounciation isn't much of an issue for English speakers, but the written form is absolutely horrendous.
Coupled with Japanese's limited phonetics and grammar, I can only imagine the nightmare Japanese people have when learning French.
I've heard that Spanish is easier for Japanese people to learn. Is that true?

Yes. Spanish is so much easier for Japanese when it comes to pronunciation. Gramatically speaking, Korean is the easiest language for Japanese, but no interest.
I wish I could speak Mandarin. But no time, no motivation, no money to learn the language from scratch.

As long as your pronounciation isn't total shit and you can get your message across, that should meet the definition of basic English in Japan imo.
Good luck with the interview, hope it goes well.
If you really wanna practice, maybe look for some pronounciation practice videos on YouTube or something similar. Rosetta stone maybe?

Sales tax increase because government actually want to get increase politician's salary not for lack of pension money.
But our income is the same. So we have to save or not buy anything we don't really need. Then company can't get money from us. Then our salary don't get increase. So Japanese economy will never be better.

the bet. if it is the kind of trade of future of for example wheat, as long as it’s trade is done through japanese companies all you have to lose is the money you put in advance before you begin the bet. but, in fx, the circumstance differs from it.
and, for trades, large leverage is used, so, so small amount of the price changes may bring you huge amount of losses. i recommend you not to bother with the fox.

It depends on the school, program, etc.
I pay $5000 CAD a year for 2 semesters' tuition for my program. This is for a 2 year diploma program where it counts as two years towards a bachelors degree.
As a foreign student, your tuition is increased to subsedise Canadians with their lower tuition.
State universities and other institutions will have different costs.
Some universities might give you financial assistance depending on socioeconomic status though.
The situation is similar in Canada compared to the US, but there are a multitude of differences between the two to take into consideration.

- This gaijin tends to think Japanese is easy to pronounce due to its limited phonetics. This is clearly a wrong assumption because the most difficult part of pronouncing Japanese is intonation.
I have never met any non-native speakers who have no trouble speaking it correctly no matter how many years they live in Japan.
It seems almost impossible to master it without having native parents.
- 155 ：外人 ：2019/09/18(水) 16:15:13.76 ID:GoR8hbgh0.net
Obviously intonation would be a difficult part of Japanese. It's hard for any language.
But the limited phonetics make it somewhat easy for non-japanese people to learn the language, at least from my perspective.
If someone immerses themselves in the media of a given language, the intonation would be easy to pick up over time.

L and R don't even sound that similar to me. The way I think it, L(el) and R(arr) have slightly different tounge forms for making the sound.
L makes my tounge curl slightly to the tip of the roof of my mouth with the tip of my tounge.
R on the other hand has my tongue curl to the back of my mouth with the underside of my tounge touching the middle roof of my mouth.
Don't know if that makes any sense, but the sound difference is there.

I can pronounce them. But listening is difficult. By the way I heard native speaker children don't know difference between TH and F sound. Is that true?

Those two words are written by voice typing. I know how to pronounce it because of a good teacher called Summer on YouTube.
It's relatively easy to pronounce them compared to the difficulties hearing the differences between them.
Once I saw a article on BBC that says when you are a baby you can distinguish all sounds but when you grow up you will lose the ability because it is no longer necessary to discern them in your native language.

Your English (at least in written form) sounds quite good and natural. You are definitely on the right track. Keep it up!
If you don't mind me asking, how have you been studying English?
I'm a native English speaker who's studying Japanese, and my main philosophy when it comes to studying is "input before output".
That is, I try to immerse myself (in other words, "get input") in natural Japanese as much as possible, so that I actually understand the language before trying to speak (in other words, "output") by myself.
I'm wondering if you are using a similar approach for your English, especially since you said it was your first English lession.
If so, then it seems to be working for you.

- 243 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 09:37:38.83 ID:sGonzLr8H.net
Thank you for the response.
I hadn't heard of Marsha Krakower before.
It seems like she was born in Japan, so she's probably been getting Japanese input all her life, and is basically a native.
Thane Camus's Japanese is also perfect from what I hear, but he's been living in Japan since he was like 6, so he's also gotten tons of input and practice.
I bet his Japanese is probably even better than his English by now.
I think Matt (from the video I linked) is pretty impressive because he learned Japanese without leaving the United States,
so he didn't get the advantage of getting to live in Japan and being surrounded by the language all the time.
He had to build a "Japanese-only" environment all on his own, mainly through the internet.
I'm trying to replicate his approach since I have no plans to actually ever go to Japan, but I would like to know the language.
I think, with all the materials available on the internet to read and listen to, we could all become fluent in our target languages by simply immersing ourselves in it all the time!
- 244 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 09:58:59.91 ID:EXUjFbIvd.net
I didn't know she was born in Japan. How about Peter Barakan？
Matt Japanese isn't perfect. But it's incredible to get that ability without living in Japan.
- 245 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 10:15:54.58 ID:sGonzLr8H.net
You are correct.
I think one reason for this is that almost no Japanese students are aware that pitch accent (高低アクセント) is a thing that even exists, or if they do, they don't think it's important.
The canonical examples are how 箸が, 端が, and 橋が all have different pitch accent when spoken. Or 雨 and 飴.
For most students of Japanese, their study of pitch accent stops at these two examples.
But it's not just these words; really, EVERY word in Japanese has its own pitch accent, just like how every word in English has its own stress on certain syllables.
However, because you don't "need" correct pitch accent to simply be *understood*, most Japanese language students think that Japanese pronunciation is easy,
even though their intonation sounds unnatural as fuck, and they're constantly getting pitch accent wrong.
It's not like Chinese where bad pronunciation will keep you from being understood.
But people who say "Japanese is easy" seriously underestimate how hard it is to reach a native level at speaking the language.
I've already accepted that I will probably never get to a "native level", but I would still be happy just being "very good".
- 246 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 10:28:18.81 ID:sGonzLr8H.net
Peter Barakan seems to have been born and raised in England, so if his Japanese is really perfect, then that's certainly impressive.
I wonder why some people are able to able to learn foreign languages to perfection, while others never reach that point, even after immersing themselves in the language for decades.
Does it come down to their studying habits, or just some sort of natural abilities?
At any rate, in English we have a common saying: "Don't let perfect be the enemy of good".
In other words, it's better to keep trying and to become very good at something, than to give up because you feel like you will never be perfect.
- 247 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 11:02:32.39 ID:KkiC7pOjd.net
You don't need to be perfect. I can't speak English that much. But I'm interested in perfect speaking person. I mean I want to know how they learned foreign language.
- 248 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 11:13:28.34 ID:sGonzLr8H.net
Yeah, same. I'm also very interested in their methods.
Those guys like Peter Barakan could probably make tons of money if they marketed their language learning methods to the masses.
But they seem less interested in that, and more interested in just living their lives.
Maybe they just don't want us to know their secret...
- 249 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 11:51:29.57 ID:mWkzQVGx0.net
I'm not trying to downplay their effort and of course practice and immersion are the most important but I think some people are just naturally good at languages.
There are people who are good at context reading, pronouncing clearly, giving a speech, writing a novel and then there ard some who are not.
Even natives have varying levels of abilities at their language like that so it's only natural that the same applies to language learners.
- 250 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 12:36:57.96 ID:sGonzLr8H.net
Yeah, I have no doubt that some people are just naturally better at learning at a certain rate than others.
And of course, if you're a natural mimic, then pronunciation and such are going to come easier to you.
After all, language is mostly mimicry and natural mimics have a huge advantage when it comes to that.
I'm still interested in the overall process and theory behind language learning, though.
Take Matt, for example. He's not perfect at Japanese,
but he's only been speaking the language for a fraction of the time that Peter Barakan has.
I wonder, if Matt keeps up with his immersion-based approach to language learning,
if he will ever reach perfection,
or if he will just plateau at "almost, but not quite perfect" like so many other learners do.
Even among people who live in countries where their target language is predominately spoken,
many of them just craft "gaijin bubbles" for themselves where they're not actually
immersing themselves as much as you think they would be.
So while being a natural at 物真似 plays a role,
I'm sure, I wonder how much if it comes down to 才能 and how much of it comes down to just the method.
- 251 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 12:38:32.83 ID:sGonzLr8H.net
Another thing I'm interested in, is how long did it take people like Peter Barakan to become perfect?
Surely they weren't just speaking flawlessly from day one.
But there's so little documentation on the subject.
It's like, should you take it as, "if you've been studying for x years and you're still not perfect by then, you'll never be perfect"?
If it took him 2 years to reach perfection then I'd surely believe he's a genius.
Nobody who's not FUCKING EXCEPTIONAL learns perfect Japanese in 2 years.
But if it took him 20 years, then I have to wonder if it's something environmental rather than genetic still.
Not that I think it matters THAT much, whether you have a subtle accent or not.
I'm sure that everyone would agree that Dave Spector speaks excellent Japanese even if he has a foreign accent and such.
But I would still accept that Peter Barakan has something over him, either environmental OR genetic,
if he was able to reach total perfection in the same amount of time.
- 252 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 13:13:11.60 ID:sGonzLr8H.net
- Another thing I want to comment on is people like Thane Camus who are also widely regarded to be language gurus or something.
If you've listened to Thane Camus speak English for an extended period of time, you will realize that, while he's still pretty good at it,
there's just something "off" about the way he speaks English that just shows that he's just way more comfortable with Japanese on the inside than English.
Like, his English really is the kind of English you would expect from someone who moved to Japan when they were 6 or 10 years old, rather than the English of someone
who stayed in an English-speaking country until adulthood.
If you're an English native then just listen to the clips of him reading English on his new Mr. Coconut channel on YouTube and you'll see what I mean.
It's only natural that, after 40 years of living in Japan, he's forgotten the natural rhythm and cadence of the language he spoke as a 6 year old.
And though he may be white and his Japanese is perfect, his English certainly is not.
I think that Japanese and English are just such different languages, that there's almost nobody alive who's capable of maintaining both to a truly "native" level without prioritizing one over the other,
if you know what I mean.
But that doesn't mean you can't be very good at both still.

Thank you, I feel relieved to hear that my English sounds natural to you.
I have been learning in a way surprisingly similar to yours, except that I had no clear intention to do that, so to speak.
My first exposure to English was 12 years ago when I entered my junior high.
I have since immersed myself in my favorite movies, magazines, etc. in the language. I could say I was also an avid learner of the grammar at school.
However, I was, or I have been, too lazy and shy to find opportunity to have real conversations.
- 254 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 13:41:35.48 ID:tAYW/YEb0.net
(cont. >> 253)
As a result, I have a fairly rich vocabulary pool in my head but most of the words and phrases in it remain “passive”.
The reason I sound not too awkward in written form is that there is virtually no time limit to review and rewrite it, often with the aid of dictionaries, so they sound more natural.
I can tell whether a sentence is natural or not “in hindsight”. I just cannot form it on the spot.
The funny thing is that I know what “obsequious” and “flabbergasted” mean but in the online lesson I find myself struggling to switch tenses, and there is always a long and awkward pause before I can finally output a grammatically decent sentence.
- 255 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 13:52:08.00 ID:sGonzLr8H.net
That's interesting to hear.
I've also been taking an approach of just trying to understand everything Japanese.
My main goal with Japanese was just understanding rather than outputting.
I have to say, that tonight is the only night I've ever really talked to Japanese people.
And even now, it's mostly in English rather than Japanese.
But I spend 6+ hours every day, just trying to read and understand real Japanese,
which is spoken/written by real Japanese people. In doing so, I've come to understand almost all of the Japanese that I see and hear on a daily basis,
which was my goal in the first place.
However, after doing so, I find myself wanting to be able to speak/write Japanese in the same way that I understand it. So I have to keep going and pushing myself.
>However, I was, or I have been, too lazy and shy to find opportunity to have real conversations.
This is my problem as well, I think. I think I could speak or write Japanese if I tried, but I'm just too shy to.
Anyway, just 頑張ってくださいね。 I'm sure we'll both get there eventually.
- 256 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 13:56:53.39 ID:sGonzLr8H.net
Yeah, I think I'm at the same stage in Japanese as you are in English.
That is, I can write somewhat natural Japanese and I can see what's right "in hindsight",
but 実際に喋ること is still too "real-time" for me.
I've heard of this technique called "shadowing", where you basically just repeat, in real-time,
what a native speaker says. And in doing so, you're supposed to become more fluent and "quick at thinking on your feet"
when it comes to your target language.
But I haven't tried it yet, because I feel like I should be focused on bringing my listening comprehension up to truly 100% first,
rather than the 97% or so that it's at right now.
>The funny thing is that I know what “obsequious” and “flabbergasted” mean
I will say that, as a native speaker, I don't even know what “obsequious” means. But as a Japanese learner I can read 髑髏 and write 薔薇 even though I know that even a few native Japanese can't.
I think that one thing that separates a native from a learner, is that a native just has this intuitive sense of what's important to know and what's not. Whereas a foreign learner can't intuitively tell whether “obsequious” is worth learning or not.

Thane Camus and Dave spector are excellent. But they both learned from they were children. Children learn language faster than adults.
I checked out how Peter Barakan learned Japanese. He learned Japanese at the college maybe 4years. But he couldn't speak Japanese when he graduated.
After he came to Japan, He learned from TV drama and conversation.
- 258 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 14:05:47.18 ID:sGonzLr8H.net
Interesting. I've heard that Dave Spector has an obvious foreign accent, whereas Thane Camus sounds like a native speaker. Am I wrong?
I am trying to learn from TV drama, anime, and YouTube. And after 3 years, I can read and understand almost all of it. But I can't speak yet.
I think mostly I am just too embarrassed to try.
But since my original goal was just "understanding" rather than "speaking", I am very happy. I will try to keep it up and hope that I can reach Peter Barkan's level someday.
After all, he's been living in Japan for at least 20 years before I was even born, so I think I should give myself that sort of time to catch up (*´∀｀*)
- 259 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 14:27:41.18 ID:Ir48VYXed.net
Thane Camus's accent is better than Peter Barakan.
I think shadowing is very good for listening. Repeating is good for speaking.
- 260 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 14:42:06.88 ID:sGonzLr8H.net
Yes, I agree as well. We should all try shadowing and see if we ultimately improve at speaking our target language.
- 261 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 14:51:25.43 ID:M1IYSvVBd.net

Why did you choose Japanese?
- 262 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 14:55:36.71 ID:sGonzLr8H.net
Also I'm not sure if I misunderstood you,
but I feel that shadowing and repeating are almost the same,
the only difference is whether you repeat in "real-time" vs. whether you repeat "afterwards".
I think both probably have the same benefits.
I will try doing a combination of both from now on and seeing which one seems to work the best for me.
Time for me to go to bed.
Everyone "ganbatte ne" and hopefully we'll all be fluent soon enough.
- 263 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 15:01:14.66 ID:sGonzLr8H.net
Well, I just think Japanese looks cooler than any other language I've ever seen in the world.
The way you guys mix ひらがな、カタカナ、漢字 I think it's very 賢い and I wish we had that in our language too.
I think you guys make the best media - yeah, the アニメ, ドラマ, エロ漫画, all of it.
I took one look at Japanese and I thought, "this must be the hardest language on earth. I HAVE to learn this."
I'm just a チャレンジ好き kind of guy, you know.
I've never regretted a single second of learning this language. I love it all.
Thank you for the encouragement.

I didn't explain it well. I repeat just one phrase. I repeat the same phrase over and over. After that I totally memorize that phrase's pronunciation accent and intonation.
- 265 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/09/24(火) 15:15:54.82 ID:tAYW/YEb0.net
It’s interesting for me as well to know we are in such a similiar situation and I wasn’t the only one.
I haven’t tried the shadowing method yet, but from your explanation I think it’s worth giving a try because it sounds like exactly what I need.
I really hope you make a successful switch to the “activation phase” of the Japanese language like I desire to of English, and we both someday be fluent both in speaking and writing.
It was fun having a conversation with you. Have a good night!

- This Japanese youtuber called AK-English has learned English in a year by speaking English with her flatmates and her story was quite fascinating.
Like how she thought "first of all" was just one word until much later.
She also talked about some interesting stuff like how those Japanese children she taught English could speak the language without an accent until the age 6 or something
and their pronunciation would only get worse after they learned the alphabet in school.

Whoa, that is pretty cool.
I didn't even know what a 'brooch' was until now, lmao.
Oh! One thing that you guys might want to try is watch English-language "Let's Play" videos on YouTube.
One of my favorite things to do in Japanese is watch 実況プレイ vids, since not only is the content fun and interesting, but the commentary is useful listening practice.
On top of that -- and this is where I think Let's Play videos shine in terms of their usefulness -- the players will often read out all the in-game dialogue out loud,
so you can practice reading along with native audio.
My favorite Japanese Let's Player is 実況局だいだら. He talks a lot, and he reads everything out loud.
Even compared to other Japanese Let's Players, I think he speaks and reads very well.
It makes me realize that I need to learn to read way faster if I ever want to keep up with people like him, haha.

Finally, remove the “g” and the “s”, because they are the first characters of “grief” and “sadness”, which are the feelings you want to get rid of.

I actually think that news in general is easier to understand than most fiction books, at least in my own experience.
The reason is that news is kind of meant to be simple. Everything is communicated in a very clear, direct, and matter-of-fact way.
The biggest hurdle to understanding news is that you have to learn a lot of vocabulary related to politics and such.
Books, on the other hand -- especially fiction books -- tend to be more abstract than news.
Authors like to inject their own writing styles and wordplay into their books.
They might contain subtle concepts which build on each other over the span of several pages or chapters.
This is kind of unrelated, but there are a lot of Americans who believe in the stupid myth that "not even Japanese people can read Japanese newspapers",
so I think it's commonplace to believe that news is the most difficult reading material out there.

Newspaper's grammar is not so difficult. I thought you need specific vocabulary as you said.
Basically people choose books you are interested in after you learned words and expressions. So I think it's not so hard to read books you are interested in.
I like travel abroad. So I memorized words which relates travel in the first place.
If you mean every kinds of books, it might be difficult. Novel, I used to read novel which has easy words. But if you like something special. It might be difficult.

- It may depend on a newspaper you read.
BBC is relatively easy to read compared to the New York times that uses complex grammar and less common words.
Andi agree that fiction is the most difficult.
I started to learn English to read a non-fiction book, Embracing Defeat, this book is very insightful but very easy to read like newspapers.
- 282 ：名無しさん＠日本語勉強中 ：2019/09/25(水) 12:44:24.23 ID:HP4eMiAsH.net
I agree that it depends on the newspaper.
In my own case, for example, I think that FNN is an excellent resource for Japanese learners.
Not only do they use rather simple Japanese, but they include transcripts of basically everything the announcers are saying.
The only real difference is that the announcers use 丁寧語 whereas the written transcripts do not.
So for a Japanese student, FNN is a fucking godsend.
It's embarrassing to admit, but I don't really read English novels that much anymore.
I find it to be too boring since the internet is a thing now. It's been several years since I've read a single English book.
I think the Internet might have ruined my attention span for books, haha.
But I will look into Embracing Defeat since you mentioned it.

It sounds like you really were overqualified.
Here in the West, they would never hire someone with a Master's degree for a convenience store job,

i heard that it is not good to pluck your hair and you should cut(trim) it instead.
plucking your hair may damage your skin and it sometimes causes suppuration.

I don't think the teacher likes teaching at all. He doesn't smile, he doesn't even look at the students, he seems he doesn't give a damn about anything that's happening in his class.

All cultures whose language isn't widespread is pretty insular. English, French, and German are all pretty PC in terms of racism and political speach.
German for a seperate reason. English and french are lingua francas of the world, so there's quite a bit of cultural exchange. German on the other hand is more because of the guilt of WWII still being felt by a majority of people to this date.
However, seeing how insular a particular culture is can be pretty eye opening too, so give and take I guess.
Allows someone to see what the zeitgeist of a culture can be. What someone from that culture may think subconciously and what their biases may be.
That's one of the reasons I want to learn Japanese.
And because I'm a filthy weeb who wants to watch anime without subs and to understand cultural references.

Whether you see offensive things or not on Youtube depends on the content and luck.
It does not depend on the language, as offensive English videos and posts do exist there.
5ch is the underground site of Japan, so it's par for the course that you see lots of foul posts here (or on any other nerdy sites).
If you go to English underground/nerdy sites, you will see lots of foul posts likewise. (Even on sites like reddit.)
Also the language of this thread is English and not Japanese, and what you wrote doesn't make sense.
Personally I find morons talking illogical nonsense like yours a lot more irritating than the erratic Korean troll of this thread.

For example, I now and then run into an authentic expression when I read some sentences on YouTube but I can hardly find like that ones including mine.

As far as I know, having one clearer answer than someone on just one topic is not justification enough for a decent human to haul denigrating words at him/her.
That’s sort of a moronic social ineptitude, but it does not make sense if you profess to be a smarter individual.
You surely have another legitimate reason why you did that. I beg you to enlighten me with your wisdom, pretty please!

I see. Those foods you call “super foods” do look colorful and motivating, but in my opinion they don’t seem far better than “normal” foods.
Taking appropriate amount of protein, fat, vitamins is more important than picking up “super foods.”
By the way, tofu is a good source of protein.

English test that measures English proficiency and is known only in Japan diffirent
from other English tests like TOEFL, TOEIC and ILETS.
And it took 10 minutes to read the article about the Babymetal and I looked up
words on online dictionary a few times. I think I understand the article 80% or so. That's
partly because of my lack of English proficiency and partly because I'm not
familiar with the Metal thingy. I have to admit I have lost the passion to improve my
English any more so I don't care if my English doesn't show any sign of improvement.
One thing is for sure. Whatever foreign language you start learning, the farther
you go, the harder you find it to recognize your improvement. And it's almost
impossible to reach the native speakers' levels as long as you aren't either grown up
in a bilingual family or raised in a foreign country where your target language is
spoken. C'est la vie.

- i have heard a lot of people say "24" or "prison break" or "game of thrones" is worth watching.
strangely, i feel reluctant to watch tv drama series.
i guess it is partly because no less than 6 or 7 or 8 series have already been produced.

- Acting as a "proper" grown-up is sometimes a nuisance.
Paricularly so, when you are required to welcome some relatives or friends of a family member who you are not familiar with.
Even if you are an extreme introvert, you are expected to perform as it should be.
That is why I rarely visit my parents' house.
There is no such thing as "home" to me.

- Japanese Ramen is probably the kind of noodles.
A Vietnamese-style noodle dish called pho may be a close rival.
A distant third would be some Thai-style noodle dish or Italian pasta variety.
The other noodle dishes in other countries are effectively rubbish(Brt Eng).

- Placing somen above soba and yakisoba is weird. Somen is like cheap/light stuff that is only good for summer.
Pasta is my favorite noodle, hands down.
- 470 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/10/05(土) 21:49:09.35 ID:Y7/h8c2F0.net

You don’t know the potential somen has... Somen is super noodles. Somen can be Japanese dish and somen can be western.
Somen are versatile super food.

- 475 ：名無しさん＠英語勉強中 ：2019/10/05(土) 22:57:22.04 ID:Y7/h8c2F0.net
- That just looks like a bowl of somen with diced tomatoes, and the latter somen with hiyashi shabushabu.
I think it's just the hiyashi shabushabu-like stuff that is tasty and not much to do with the somen in the bowl.
Somen in my opinion has the worst texture among noodles, and I don't think anything you put on it would change my opinion on that.

I don't like the idea of slurping the cold oily somen. Are you sure that's not ramen?

- Japanese firmly believe they have relatively good English reading proficiency but lose command of the language when it comes to speaking or writing.
The truth is, though, that Japanese completely lacks any command of the language in every aspect.
They can not read English well, let alone speak or write.
The fundamental problem here lies in the inadequacy of the amount of English these poor Japanese have soaked up so far in their life.

My fucking neighbour just came to my home and the BBA complained about a small shovel in my garden and she demands that I should put it away because the typhoon is approaching.
She claims that it’s very dangeous because it’ll fly in the air and hit someone or cause damages to the neighbours’ houses.
I was like seriously? YOU SHOULD GET INTO A NURSING CARE FACILITY RIGHT NOW!!!!!!
This is why this annoying old BBA is hated by all neighbours. Fuck bitch.

- I have found it extremely difficult to answer grammatical questions on Japanese language on a forum primarily dedicated to Anglophone learners of the language.
In fact, it's way easier to answer questions on English than those on my mother tongue.
This may sound weird, given most people blindly assume they are an expert of their first language.
The truth is, however, that you can relatively easily make your mark with your acquired foreign language, while struggling to do the same on your native language.
In my case, I am totally incapable of giving any effective advice on Japanese grammatical questions, eventually forced to raise the white flag.
As it turned out, Japanese native speakers, with no special training, have no arsenal of knowledge regarding grammar.
So what is the moral of this tale?
You should be better off learning English from a fellow Japanese teacher, rather than a native speaker.

Most people don't know how their native language really works,
unless they explicitly study it or are required to teach it to others.
(Trying to figure out when "a" or "the" are used in English is a
surprisingly difficult exercise for native English speakers; most
people haven't thought of the notion of 'countability' or specificity.)
Where having a naive speaker teach is really helpful is them being
able to tell you if your sentences are wrong or awkwardly constructed;
they might not be able to tell you *why*, but they can definitely
tell there's a problem.
Same thing goes for native Japanese speakers teaching Japanese!
Few of them had heard of 連濁 or pitch tone.

- I'm British myself and I can proudly inform you that the Cockney accent is almost extinct outside of TV and Movies.
It exists mainly as a stereotype for portraying low class characters. RP/BBC English isn't common either but
most people in the South-East of England speak something relatively close to it (including myself).
The 'holiday resort' people you mentioned are usually low class people from the North, who tend to have more idiosyncratic accents.
I hope you gents had a safe time during the Typhoon.

Yep, I'm going to watch it but I've mostly been supporting Japan and Wales. Wales has a much better energy and atmosphere,
since it's such a small country, whilst I'm fond of Japan as a country and the team has been spectacular so far. Underdogs are usually more
fun to root for than big countries with big teams, like England.
