Happy belated. I'm literally one day older than you!
It felt like looking into a laser pointer compared to what I'm used to seeing on this site.
A bit late for halloween but; Frankenstein was the monster.
I came in here expecting "The World Is Saved" to be in the OP. I was not disappointed.
Arin Hanson has a private Japanese native speaker as a teacher. His pronounciation is still terrible. Just saying.
But having a bad pronounciation isn't the end of the world, I admit. And yeah, discipline helps.
Put in a sentence:
Hotto Doggu de paizuri wo shimasu
I came to Japan without any knowledge at all, and in most ways I think that was good. But it wouldn't hurt being able to read and write.
I'm thinking that these threads (Post the song that matches your current feeling in life, Unpopular Opinions, Daily Venting Thread) are geting very redundant. Edit: That includes this thread.
I miss the days when we kept game threads on a separate page and the front page was filled with a bunch of meta drama. That was fun.
Preferably don't learn Japanese in the US. Or in any other country except Japan (but especially the US). If possible, of course. Every person I have met in Japan who learned a majority of their Japanese outside of Japan has garbage pronounciation (with a few exceptions of course).
Another merit of studying in Japan is the cheap alcohol.
