Japanese test in less than 30 minutes. What more can I do at this point?
Good luck, anon. We'll all be rooting for you.
I'm a fucking loser
And she was just next to me. Alone. I could have invited her or something.
The bitter feeling of regret lingers long after all other emotions have faded.
Fear the ghost you have created, and be prepare to be haunted by your own inaction.
Thanks, will do!
Neither is correct, because I don't.
Well, I guess it depends on my mood at the time
(2, I'm assuming)
I'm considering it.
Also considering it.
>tfw everything I've studied is on a flashcard app on my cellphone
Good bye Fintaro....
Lost another good one, lads.
At least he's in a better place now.
Have a vaggie burger!
i'm not of a poussy but when tsundere chan don't even say hello to you, you are supposed to stay quiet and shut the fuck up
Because I'm anxious with girls all the time
I like Yuru-Yuri for educational purposes :^)
My dream is it to work in Japan and marry a bitter BBA that has been learning English and posts on 4chan and then have 2 children with her and buy a dog with cat like behavior.
Personally, I only watch Yuru Yuri for the plot.
Maybe I've just heard the wrong things then about them
On a separate topic, would minoring in Japanese help me learn the language? I took 2 years of it in high school but it didn't really help me outside of super basic stuff
Or is there a better way for self study?
You have to force yourself to use the language outside of class, otherwise you won't really make much progress. People who learn the fastest are the ones who immerse themselves in it the most. Some people choose to change all their computer settings and stuff to a foreign language and start reading news articles once they're familiar with the basics.
Once you hit an intermediate stage and are comfortable with how to construct sentences, how to conjugate, etc., all you're really doing after that point is just picking up vocabulary.
You probably meant shy, because that isn't polite. If she'd want you to ask her, it is the opposite of polite and it's selfish, because you don't have to step out of your comfort zone.
You can still ask her on fb btw
How the hell did people survive in -41C weather before modern times?
Ah I see.
Google Images gave me this
>kichigai is 放送禁止用語 ( banned word to be used on the air. like F word)
there is few 放送禁止用語 in Japan though.
it is also discriminatory term.
so, kuso = chikusho (these words are used by even 6yo kids) <temee<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<kichigai
This. When Japanese hear a gaijin speak nihongo, they associate katakana to their voices
Just curious, what do Japanese people think about Spaniards and Spain?
Is your Japanese so bad he thinks you're speaking English?
-22 atm, it suddenly got cold since the New Year
Took this pic out of the window a few days ago when it was a bit colder
I sometimes am asked by foreigners about directions. At first, they speak in Japanese to me, but when I reply to them with difficult Japanese (long sentences), they tend to switch speaking from Japanese to English or their native language. You know, you sometimes need to use difficult expression when you explain about direction properly.
So, some Japanese reply to foreigners like the pic even though foreigners speak Japanese.
You know I've come to realize after studying so many countries that, aside from having fundamental differences in the way we think and approach situations, we're all really the same. Japanese people and their family dynamic isn't really that much different. I think both Japanese and Americans believe too much that anime and sitcoms are an accurate representation of American/Japanese culture.
I think we would get along if Japanese and Americans realized that we do and think very similarly, most countries do despite what people think.
On a national level, we don't. But on a human level, we worry about the same things.
Japanese people had already given up a lot of their culture to emulate the brits and the German's systems. Militarily and economically they completely converted their systems to western ways. Only a matter of time before the west appealed to the people.
wait a minute, Spanish doesn't have that many apostrophes in the middle of its words
As someone who has lived for two years in Germany, I'm really missing Japan. I had a 40h job. Just payment is shit and you don't have lots of holidays. What do? I feel uncomfortable and depressive in Germany. Should I move to Japan or stay?
I think humans have a general way of acting.
Like for instance we think North Koreans are super strict but they probably have tons of people who are just that: people.
I think we either demonize or think other people are a lot different than us.
she lurks here all the time but never posts anymore
I'm cooler than her anyways, you all know that 笑
I hope too
some things just can't happen...
>tfw not kiri and cant look at yourself naked in the mirror
>I came to know that penetrating someone without a condom without permission, or knowingly transmitting an STD, is not punishable by any law in Japan.
Time to go to Japan and just slip my dick into random women when they aren't expecting it
>How much times needs a Spanish guy who sees anime instead of TV/hollywood to learn Japanese?
Get a master's degree in some engineering, actually learn the fucking language and stop being a faggot.
Third one might be too hard for you though.
Hello jap people. I don't know much about japanese literature. I picked up a book at the store which I got interested in mainly because of the cover art to be honest. It's Norwegian Wood by Murakami. Did I do good? Seems like it's a cult classic, but so far (chapter 2) it's been a bit boring and feels like Murakami was just having sexual thoughts about a girl and wrote them down desu
I just want you all to know that it's been fun
