Let's learn english.
POST THE CONTINUATION OF THIS NOW I AM SO ANGRY.
>origami soccer uniform
HOW AND WHY?
I've had a few, but I can't remember what they were about for the life of me
They were usually only long paragraphs about drama or history or SoL meant for reading comprehension. My French books also had something similar, but it was really low key multicult propaganda
Let's get the story straight.
Because Yumi didn't recognize the boy in the photo at a glance, we can assume that it is from when Ken was younger and before they met in junior high. This means that Lucy met Ken first when he was in the US, presumably in elementary school. At some point Ken left for the US for work, maybe meeting Mike and Lucy again. Mike and Lucy move to Japan work work. Then, near the beginning, Ken is transferred back to Japan.
What a wild fucking ride
What's really surprising me is that Japan's finally started moving away from kana as an English teaching tool. I just don't understand how someone might think a syllabary made for a completely unrelated language with an alien phonology would be useful for English.
Search your feelings, you know how it ends unless you're a newfag.
Open end. With Ken having mild circumstantial preference to Yumi, but no decision, no accepted confession. Whiteys essentially get cucked.
Considering how poor most Japanese speak English, one has to wonder why they bother at all. It's just like how I had to take Latin, it's not like I'll ever have a use for it. Sure it's cool to know some Latin, but let the people that actually care about that stuff do it, not everyone.
Maybe english shouldn't be spoken instead?
Even natives have difficulties picking up sounds because they sound so nasally.
Phonetics that all end in vowels is the way to go. Just get rid of that っ bullshit.

Do you know why western European countries have such a high English fluency rate? Because their teaching programs incorporate reading English literature. When it's not irregular English grammar is very simple, and the irregularities and just about anything idiomatic in the language is best learned through exposure. Ideally by conversing (orally and textually) with actual English-speaking natives, but that's too impractical for anything but small courses so you have to settle for reading.
There's also Dark Horizon which apparently focuses on phrases you might use when you become an adult
He was born in Japan, referring to the clue in another page where Yumi ask how was 15 years of his life over in America compare to over. Yumi know him before he went over to the state so it's implied the spent his childhood in Japan.
With some not so subtle damning of NEETS and hikkis
That's true. I suppose I could point out something more obvious: a very big portion of the obvious ESLs here who make LN threads to shitpost in come from SEA. They also speak languages far from close to English, but their English is still surprisingly good. By the same token, Russians and many Slavs (I should know, being one) are fucking terrible at English because there's really no need to rely on it there, despite Slavic languages being Indo-European. Japan (and also China but that's a different topic) teaches English the same way it does kanji - rote memorization and reliance on kana, simply because that's what teachers were always used to when teaching languages. That is changing (as you can see from this very textbook) but it's still a very prevalent attitude and I doubt it'll be going away anytime soon.
>Talking about idols with Koji
Japan dropping the bombs.
>Judy even hold a drumstick
Holy christ, even the nips know the racial black stereotype
>Mike masturbating as a 10-year-old
>Stealing panties isn't even in the Japanese text
Wait, that doesn't make any sense, if he was in america during middle school, why does Ken say he was friends with Yumi since junior high? I thought junior high was middle school.
Really? Even he/she make the "how to insult gaijins"
Are you saying you wouldn't protect her smile?
>if it's not one then it must be the other
>putting words in my mouth
obviously 2deep4u, Japanese textbook story can't be underestimated.
Well done, Mike
>kicked ground instead of the ball
As someone who plays somewhat professional soccer I hate when that happens but it doesn't put you in that condition you fucking retard, Mike.

So this is what he's doing now
Its not literature, just internet. I knew english when I was 12 because of playing videogames day and night.
The english class was pretty much divided in people who already knew english since they watched loads of movies (we dont dub movies here) and vidya and people who didnt know english and just learned it enough to pass
Holy shit this thread went to places quickly
Yeah. Scandinavia has an incredibly high English fluency rate due to the fact that nearly all movies and roughly 50% of television are subtitled imports from English-speaking countries, and that's without adding in video games, which are ALL in English outside educational games for little kids.
Dubbing media for adults is not done period, and educators are championing against dubbing media for children too, since it reduces their exposure to foreign languages and negatively affects their reading speed.
>HanaKana speaking engrish
Why not try and get one of the people who can actually speak both Japanese and English without butchering one or the other? It's less hard than you'd think.
>really just a gathering of people with shattered dreams
Please, you guys are forgetting the best one.
Netherlands here. But yeah it first was because dubbing for 20 million people just doesnt give returns, then because dutch people dont like dubs (looks retarded with their mouth and people like original voices better)
>origami soccer uniform
Fuck the what?
That's what you raise a daughter for, idiot.
>not raising your son like a daughter and your daughter like a son
>he doesn't want a cute son who's sensitive and in touch with his femininity
>he doesn't want a strong daughter who values physical fitness and self-discipline
Oh this isn't a joke anon. That is my life plan
>Massachusetts-fags feeling pride over Harvard and the like when a VAST majority of the student body are imported chinks and Indians, dumb-ass trust fund kiddies, or niggers who got in due to AA.
My little cousins are a princess type princess and a slightly more aggressive genki baka who acts silly with her little brother sometimes. My God-daughter is too young to have a real personality yet, but she's cute. I love them all. Honestly if I ever have kids, I'll be happy as long as they're healthy and happy.
In late 2014, /a/ had a thread about moe manga version of Alice in Wonderland. No full version was ever posted despite everyone fapping to screenshots of it.
As it's a gathering place of losers, you'd hardly find anyone with actual money in /a/.
>As it's a gathering place of losers, you'd hardly find anyone with actual money in /a/.
Check buyfag threads. I've never been there myself but I spend thousands every year on weeb shit. Some of it is to rip and translate for you faggots, too.
>can't cost that much
ayyy lmao you must never have went to university
>High/middle school meme textbooks can't cost that much
What? Yes they are, if anything they're even more expensive because students don't actually pay for them, the school does, and just loans them out to students for the school term and then reuses them as much as possible until they're forced to replace them due to being 3 editions out of date.
Is this the 3rd season of Horizon we've been waiting for?
It's only 1500 yen guys. ;_;
anything oddly specific, a lot of books in field of physics are either hard to get or expensive as fuck, also if you are not in native english country, less popular or newer books are just not translated making it even harder to get and elevate the price to all hell. You can find shitload of stuff in libraries but even those have limited resources.
I mistyped, I've had to buy the foreign language workbooks before, and they aren't that expensive. Big hardbound textbooks were a lot though.
This >>139668234 is what I'm talking about, that's not even $20.
>ships in 3-5 weeks
I'm pretty tempted to get this too, and any others that might be in the series. But I really don't need it and it's probably not very good for studying backwards english to japanese.
Depends on the teacher and school. At one of my middle schools all the teachers have great accents and use as little japanese as possible in class.
In the other one of the teachers is full katakana eigo
Found more Mike
It actually was an American published version of Alice in Wonderland
Oh yeah, here's the link. Too bad the other books turn into fujoshit
AHAHA LITERAL SLUT.
I've had the physical copy of the book sitting around in my backpack for a while now, I thought I'd read it on the airplane once or twice but I always feel too conscious of other people to pull it out with the cute loli cover art.
Their version of The Wizard of Oz is coming out on the 19th.
I scanned the full version at some point, but it looks like I lost it when my other hard drive crashed. Been meaning to rescan it, but I also need to get another copy since I mangled a couple of the color pages in the beginning (the book was bound in some weird way that I rarely encounter, but I don't remember the details).
The paper's fairly cheap, though.
>Ken sounds more American than the American Lucy
>Lucy sounds super pissed that he called it a misunderstanding
AHAHA fucking dying.
This guy's art is way too cute.
