>exchange student is American
EVERY FUCKING TIME
step it up, kohai
It's true even in anime
Why the fuck does she add those [Lines]?
Is she summoning her [Stand]? Evoking his [Persona]?
Talking in [Japanese]
The non-bracketed is English
Whats the story behind the autor?
Like what the fuck is she even really doing in japan? Is she even a real teacher?
From what I hear, it is ridiculously easy to teach English in Japan. Like, you don't even need to learn Japanese, all you need is an undergrad degree. You'll probably regret it, but still.
Not sure about the other dude but clicking on a random post number is an easy way to bring up the quick reply box and makes dumping images easier. He might have forgotten to scrub out the post number before posting. Calm your tits.
>"english teacher" in japan
I'm surprised she hasn't killed herself yet
How can you even teach english without even knowing the basics of the other language?
I believe no one is gonna bother because first of all they are toddlers so thats like teaching dogs how to read and then you wouldnt even being able to advise them, just how fucking works???
The Japanese are so fucking shit at English that if they only heard Japanese people speaking English, they wouldn't be able to understand native speakers at all.
They have to bring in Americans or Brits just so they can get familiar with what the language really sounds like.
Also the program was put in place in WWII because the Americans decided the Japanese were too Japanese and needed to be enriched
I was there for 2 years so I can speak some.
Its basically easier to learn if its a mandatory fact of life.
though many people in japan know SOME English because its basically a mandatory class. so Youll do fine if you do it, it pays like shit and all the real teachers think you're a faggot.
what surprised me was how fucking bi polar jap kids are.
the same nigga ripping up some kid's shoes with a box cutter would be the same kid staying late cleaning the classroom after school.
Funny story, once when I was teaching Home ec I asked the students "who here loves tacos? and all of them raised their hands.
then I pulled out tortillas and all of them got confused as shit because none of them had ever seen a tortilla
tortillas are like fucking 11 dollars in japan though
and "tako" is the japanese word for squid.
we made squid tacos that day and all the teachers laughed their asses off because japanese people love wordplay humor.
>all the real teachers think you're a faggot.
i wanna do karaoke with them
>we made squid tacos
>Jap word for squid is also tako
I always recall the story about the American student being really popular, because the Korean teachers would never hit students while there was an American student in the group.
In 99.9% of cases, foreign english "teachers" aren't teachers at all. They're glorified babysitters who serve as the actual real teachers' "assistant" and their job is to entertain the kids and be cheerful and basically act as the pet gaijin of the class. Repeating phrases the teacher says in proper pronunciation and playing shitty word puzzles is the closest you'll get actual teaching.
And no, it's not "chill" at all. You're forced to work 60 hours a week, and be fucking happy and genki and all-smiles about it the entire time. 90% of "teachers" give up and go home in less than 2 years.
he looks like a friend
And thats why they are shit at both learning and speaking english.... no wonder why they cant even mantain a single chit chat without spilling their spaguetti all over the floor, you cant learn something without someone explaining to you what the fuck are you even trying to learn
>going to karaoke with a bunch of dweebs
>not going to wrestling shows and watching the qt joshis
>Being an english teacher for super cute nip kids
I've broken so many combs like this
Japanese kids also have a hard on for old Mexican gangster movies.
Ive been called "Vato-sensei" a few times.
I dunno, I would have assumed it was just me they treated badly, but they treated the other 3 JET teachers like shit too.
wed not get invited to go drinking and they would give us the cold shoulder.
or maybe it was just where we were.
one of the teachers there would talk shit about how better drinkers japanese were and say "duff weiser" was shit.
I fucking lost it so hard..... sheez nigga tell us more stuff like that
Duff Weiser is shit though. Are you Mexican national or Mexican American? I'm interested in knowing if the Mexican beers we get in the USA (tecate, Negra modelo, etc) are watered down.
>Modern Mecha anime
>Exchange Student is an Arab
See this girl making the awesome Jap teacher cartoons is great.
Everyone of them has been consistently cute and fun while not dragging up any sort of bull shit political message or any other shit.
It's also super cute to see /v/ all agreeing that the comics are awesome and nor caring about how the chick looks in real life and just focusing on her work instead.
Y como te trataron en general los japoneses?
Es cierto que hay una subcultura de mexanippones que tambien se sienten como morros de secundaria despues de ver sangre por sangre?
Japanese game w/ older female lead and the male protag is a boy.
I tried writing her about becoming pen pals a few months ago, but she didn't reply. I don't know if I came off as creepy or if she's just shy/too busy, but either way I enjoy her stuff.
She does seem like the kind of people I'd be friends with.
doubt it but Im probably not the only mexican with a degree in food fucking science who went to japan
Im not white but im not brown either, but if youre asking if i look like the pretty mexicans from novelas no, i look quite generic.
You dont know man you dont even know
Japanese people love you if you're from an "exotic" foreign place.
I was told that "brown" people are treated like shit but according to my co workers thats only if youre from thailand or the Philippines.
they fucking hate people from thailand or south east asia.
also they fucking hate koreans.
I told one of my co workers I was reading this korean manga called "cant see, cant hear, but love" and that nigga wouldnt talk to me for months
please tell us more stories about your adventures in japan. did you find a cute waifu gf?
>that feel when I don't actually know the answer to this question
Then again, I apparently learned how to speak English when I was a kid and all that, though I don't actually remember it.
>Doesn't look remotely arabic
>Not even facial hair
Fucker I'm an expat in Dubai and I can tell you kids have full beard at 9th grade
How do you think people first communicated when they came across a language they'd never run into before?
You can get far with miming and pointing to objects and having a lot of free time to just sit around and immerse yourself in the language and how it's used.
Your brain is incredibly capable of absorbing linguistic information before puberty, though, that is true. It's much harder on average to learn languages once you're older, even without the problems of trying to learn it without a common language to explain everything.
I was born in Mexico.
Tecate, Corona, and Negra Modelo are our versions of bud and coors and the like, cheap watered down beer that gets drunk at all the parties.
Dos equis is alright
Im more of a hard liquor person my self.
which reminds me, japanese people cant hold their liquors.
yes that was the joke, he called bud weiser duff weiser
>You dont know man you dont even know
My fucking sides are in orbit. But now I want to see some mexicans or whatever walking around in samurai garb with top knots settling disputes with swords or some shit.
Yeah they basically just sit there and play hangman, mind you it's not much better than the Jap teacher I had in secondary school, she'd just stick on an anime and fuck about on her phone
I am not good at telling stories, why not ask me stuff and ill see if i can answer.
about the qt waifu though; I didnt date anyone exclusively, but I had alot of girlfriends. I didn't have as much as my white counterparts though. Most japanese chicks look like they were squashed, they have fat stubby legs.
Japanese girls really dig foreign guys. >>323155268
I dont know alot of things.
Youre not japanese so you will always be a foreigner.
they are polite so they will tolerate you but eh, who cares bruv its japan just go and watch all their dick festivals and other obscure shit
>work in korea
>have korea co workers
>me and friends watching one punch man on phone
>he says "you like japanese cartoons?" Almost in a shocked kinda weirded out way
It was pretty funny, but then again I guess the difference here is he moved past it pretty much instantly. Hell the next day he was willing to let me try some of his lunch. Most koreans I've worked with or met are a nice jolly bunch.
I'll never get the obsession with kimchi though.
I'm a white american that got stationed in korea for 2 years and I fell in love with cabbage kimchi and to a lesser extent, cucumber kimchi. Shits so good. I pour chipotle hot sauce on everything or dip it in wasabi, so I understand I may be an outlier with regards to taste.
Well it's more than that. They do it with all sorts of shit like radishes, cabbage and like. They just have the shit with fucking everything except breakfast. I guess I am pretty fond of radish kimchi though.
My parents fucking love kimchi, I never understood their obsession with it especially considering that we're
Turns out back in the ye olde soviet times when ma and pa lived in Uzbekistan there were a shitload of Koreans and their love for strange spicy cabbage rubbed off on them.
You get paid shit and work like 50 hours a week.
you get housing but its some shitty one room apartment, you have to learn how too cook using asian ingredients because anything from the mainland costs a billion dollars.
No Milk, No beans, No orange juice.
instead you get RICE and nappa cabbage and leaks and potatos. and maybe sliced brisket or ground beef if its on sale.
I ment it as one night stands, I was never looking for an actual girlfriend.
you approach them like you would here I dunno Im not a ladys man.
They lost their shit if i spoke to them in spanish though.
"Mi amor estas tan bella" while grabbing their hand and giving them a kiss.
if youre white slap on a british or Australian accent and boom youre golden.
>At least his comic shows he's self aware.
Most of the jokes are about how he's a horribly pathetic waste of space, of course he's aware.
I don't know how costly food is there according to the American standard, but my cousin lives there and I can tell you that stories of Tokyo being extremely expensive are bullshit.
He lives decently with an assistant teacher's salary and pay fairly inexpensive rent.
The reason people say Japan's so expensive is if you try to live close to the center of a major city, but nobody does that. Just eat your 45 minute commute like everybody else does and you'll be fine.
>America is the number one economy in the world
>the top universities in the world are found mostly in America
>American media is on the short list of things popular internationally with anime, kpop and British boy band
Why wouldn't the person be American??
So basically if I approach a woman and invite her round to Gazza's place cause he's got a barbie goin this arvo and she's a fine lookin sheila I'll get a root will I still have enough time to go out poofter bashing tonight?
An english speaker can, sure, but I really doubt I would be able to tell the difference between someone speaking mandarin and someone speaking cantonese, let alone the same language with a different accent.
>turns out my last ex started doing coke and abusing prescription painkillers soon after we started dating
>as soon as I learned, I ended the relationshop
I learned it takes powerful drugs to be able to stand my presence for any significant length of time.
I figured they would hate you because you guys wind up meeting each other on the internet a lot. Close enough cultures (physically) to be aware of each other, but far enough away to be a nebulous land of foreigners.
I made mine stop cutting, eat better, go to therapy to improve her physical and mental health and relationship with her family and was the only one working. It still wasn't enough for her to stay faithful.
You can only do so much.
this is an arab in Japan
It's because foreign teachers "English teachers" are generally
1) Stupid as fuck with almost no qualifications at all. You need any degree, not a teaching degree.
2) Unreliable and useless as fuck. Every school's dealt with crappy Americans who pull stupid shit that pisses everyone off.
But mostly because it's not really a teaching role, you're not really a teacher, you're at least 50% there as entertainment, a glorifed TA.
American here, you and us are more alike then you know. We're both enormous countries with multiple ethnicities and we act as power players in our geopolitical regions. I am looking forward to your countries' military becoming more active in your region and pissing off all your neighbors, so we can pass the "most hated country on earth on the international stage" to you, we've had it for like 50 years now.
Read about America and Russia fucking up most of the world during the cold war, and try to get your politicians to not repeat our mistakes.
Racist, bull-headed, ignorant, everything great about America.
>tfw you will never go to a japanese highschool and be Guy Jean
Yeah. It's mostly one assburger trying to make a meme out of this blog comic for English teachers. I wonder what upsets people about her. Maybe it's the whole "being in Japan at all" thing.
exactly the same thing as when you have facebook gurls using cute anime girls as profile picture and the photo gallery is literally a slideshow of anime characters while being extremely fat and ugly.
Apparently it's a fat girls thing.
nest you start remembering stupid shit that happen 10+ years ago do this:
recognize you are thinking about something that happened a long ass time ago and then immediately put a different thought in front of it
do that enough times and you may even completely forget that shit ever happened until someone who witnessed that act starts airing out dirty laundry
anyway those kinds of thoughts can be mentally debilitating
Basically Japan has this program that brings native English speakers as teachers.
Mostly its just losers who couldn't make it in their native country and weebs who want to live their anime fantasies (she seems to be the latter).
He's a goalie, that's clearly a football and he's wearing goalie's gloves
Uneven hair can be cute though.
Someone tell me how to have quickies and one night stands in japan...
Im already white but let me know anything else that I need to know before hand, also how expensive are motels over there?
>tfw I shave my own head with a pair of clippers I got for 30 bucks 3 years ago, because I refused to pay someone 8+ dollars to do it for me
>tfw I don't even fuck it up anymore
Definitely up there for best purchases I've ever made
Its easy tell them ケツを食べる
You'll be swimming in that gash
Well he is so off the road is funny, americans also dont eat real sushi they are called maki rolls or something and japan makes fun of us for being so stupid about it.... fuck them Ill rather dip them on chipoltle than drown them on that shitty sauce
Just be systematic. Always move the Clippers I'm one direction (like front to back of head) and imagine you're mowing a lawn: do one pass, then adjust about half a clipper - width towards the far side of your head and repeat. I usually swap directions and repeat the whole head the other way (back to front, then front to back). When you think you're done, pass your hand all over your head for a bit; if you missed a spot, you'll feel it.
I also shave my face with a straight razor, and a lot of the principles are the same. Just takes practice. Worst thing that happens is you look like JUST guy for a week or two while your hair grows out a little and then no one can tell anymore, if they were paying attention in the first place.
Thing is , Mickey's wouldn't be a bad choice over there. I've lived in Japan and Germany and they have decent stuff, put good amounts of veggies on their burgers, and have pretty interesting and tasty regional items. I mean I'd prefer a good trip to the Yakiniku place, curry house, or Gasthaus restaurant, but it's good in a pinch.
It's only back home in America that McDonald's is irredeemable trash.
God damn that's embarrassing. Here I thought I was being a smart ass.
I used to cut mine with a clipper as well. You do eventually just get the hang of it. Though I put my finger along the back of by head where it felt right, and shaved off anything lower than that. Then touched it up with a razor.
What kind of shit are we talking about?
Because right is coffee and left is dirty water
>"Mi amor estas tan bella"
I'll invite em over to my house for some posole; we can see what Jorge Ortiz de Pinedo's latest antics are while it simmers. If it's December maybe I'll invite her over for Christmas cake ft. tamales and Chocolate Abuelita, and if we have time I can explain to her why the Quetzalcoatl darkies only get to be maids in our novellas.
>ever drinking from a mega gulp
>also needing that much coffee on a sit
Nigga you better do cocaine if you need that much caffeine just to get up in the morning...
Also right is top choice, black coffee alone is not that great
>For some reason they consider running over a black cunt a hate crime
The Americans maybe, the comic is set in Japan you colossal tool. Tanuki aren't native to America after all.
I think part of the reason we even got the loose change menu is because when my cousin was down many years ago he got drunk and abused the shit out of a McDonalds for not having the dollar menu.
And now we have large frozen cokes for one dollarydoo.
Caffeine is the most - used drug in the United states. Caffeine addiction is also retardedly high, but that's probably equal parts coffee and other caffienated beverages (energy drinks and soda/pop/coke/whatever you call it)
It's been posole ever since I was young. I think it might be regional, I don't know. A simple search will show you that they both fly.
Also, it's fuck, not fucked. That one isn't regional.
>mfw actually good coffee is so popular the price is literally state regulated to a certain degree so it never goes above 1.10€ with a standard 0.80€
>browsing 4chan at work
Uh-oh, is that a promotion I see?
just kidding, this is a good and fun thread. /v/ is a shitty board for discussing video games
Nigga its not just black coffee, this is just plain black coffee
>hurr da bantz
Look you cunt, some cunt made a joke about hitting a black cunt being a crime, I made a joke that it's only a crime in Japan, your cuntish autism caused you miss the joke, you cunt. So stop being a cunt, you bogan cunt.
So if I ever went to japan.... what are some do's, dont do's, and must do's?
You're trying too hard mate.
Saying cunt too much, you just look like a bloody fool.
All we have in the US is mandatory school shooting practice.
>mom says I can buy a video game after school tomorrow, I wanna get the new Mario game
>school shooting practice that day right after school
>get really nervous when it's my turn to do a run
>ar15 jams after the first mag and I forget how to clear it correctly because I know everyone is watching
>burn my fingers trying to remove the double feed
>mom says we need to get call of duty so I can practice
America sucks, I wish I was european.
>Watch one of her streams because I like her comics
>Talks about how she's leaving Japan soon
>Talks about how she wont be doing Lets Speak English anymore
>Says one of the best things about is that 4chan wont talk about her anymore
Why does everyone hate us.
We also have this in middle and high school
I remember there were only 8 people in the comic club, and all we do is just talking about stupid shit and make fun of our club adviser. We end up self-publishing our comic magazine too.
I actually had the chance to create my own club, which was about making a video game.
It was pretty popular too, and we often stayed longer than everyone else.
don't: you're pachinko
must do: you're sister
>back of the knee maybe
every goddamn time
Must do: go to kobe for some beef
your not one of us, you filthy reddit-tier underaged faggot. fuck you
While gun safety courses are great, the problem with gun violence in america is probably more accounted for by our fascination and glorification of violence, especially using guns. All our big movies are about dudes shooting a bunch of bad guys, or war heroes fighting foreigners or something.
It's an interesting cultural difference seen in media that gets remarked on here sometimes: in a lot of the world's media, nudity is fine and prominent and violence is relatively limited. In america, every movie has some guy getting shot in the face, but any movie with so much as a tutti is immediately rated R (18+).
That sounds like bullshit to me.
Most movies from Australia and Europe heavily feature crime. Sometimes I think crime flicks are all we fuckin make. At least you guys also make lighthearted comedies and shit. With us it's just crims and serial killers in films.
I WANT TO FUCK MARY CAGLE
Yeah no. There are two issues that contribute to it, mental illness and niggers. Mass shootings are a statistical insignificance, and always happen in gun-free zones. And despite handguns being the gun of choice for murder, the government is always going after the 'assault' weapons.
What gun safety and training would reduce is accidental deaths by guns. And for that reason alone I am all for it. But it isn't going to fix that actual problems there are. Because the political left doesn't want to acknowledge the actual problems.
>mfw when I always drink espresso black, no cream, no sugar
>we go on a cruise where they actually have good espresso, grandpa decides to try it

>starts telling stories how he'd put so much sugar and creme in it you couldn't tell it was coffee when he was in the Navy

Tell that to Ireland during the famine
>tfw your life gets to the point where you can recognize doujins from crops
I used to think people who could do this were insane. I think it's time for a long, contemplative walk.
this looks so fucking artificial and so not healthy. fuck japanese and their shitty instant cooked beef. fucking kobe, my ass
Well, go kill the niggers then anon. Only you and your enlightened brothers can save us from the dark menace, you'll be a hero if you deliver us from this plight. If not you, who? If not now, when?
I teach English in Japan.
Japanese are fucking terrible at English. They study it for 7 years, but never get good at it, because Japanese teaching is batshit retarded.
That said, teaching is fun as fuck, and you get paid really well.
Just, never stop looking for work, and never settle for a bad job.
I literally work twice a week and make $20 an hour. Especially helps if you can speak Japanese.
Not him but I'm actually a seppo living down here. A lot of the media is the same since we import american shows, and there are definitely similar tastes, but I don't think that is really due to Murdoch. A lot of American culture was imported over the years, but it is still pretty different down here.
But don't ever tell an Australian he is similar to an American. It will trigger some of them. Especially the leftist cunts who still have all their bullshit anti-american feelings because they can't think for themselves. But deep down proper Americans and proper Australians share very similar values.
Holy fuck she looks just like a girl I went to Japan with during a school trip. She was super obnoxious, always speaking in a high pitched anime tone. She considered herself a pansexual satanist.
She doesn't got to Wright State University, does she?
You spent the equivalent of almost 1700 burgerbux on a single meal!?
Well people would by doing things like conceal carry or even just regular home defense, if there wasn't massive gun control in places where that is a problem. Yet no one wants to acknowledge the correlation.
It just means you read it and it stood out enough in your head to remember the origin
Nothing to worry about until you start recognizing things you found on your own and not things you were linked to
