    I'd volunteer if you need a humanoid Japanese sounding board, but you probably have better candidates for that kind of practice.
    Good luck, I hope you have no troubles and express yourself the way you want.

    Welp botched the last question in the oral exam portion but they didn't downgrade me to the ALT interview afterward so I guess it went pretty well

    But yeah I guess my Japanese skills are pretty lopsided when I can read an article, understand it perfectly, but not string together a coherent explanation of what I thought about it in Japanese, whoopsie

    What's the first thing to learn about japanese?

    I read in a forum that hiragana is a good start. Then kanji and then katakana.

    Grammar.

    That's the basis of the language after all.

    I'm taking up Japanese again with the idea of going to Japan in 2020 as a slightly less shitty gaijin, coinciding with the Olympic peak of foreign-friendliness.

    not sure if good idea

    Well I filled out all the paperwork so now I just keep doing other stuff while keeping it in the back of my mind that they may call me out of the blue any time between now and December and ask me to go to Japan if someone bails.

    Or they may not, that's the problem with waiting lists.

    Meanwhile, in the basic level,

    Yesterday I used おかす when I meant おこす. The object of the sentence was 妹. There was much rejoicing.

    Reminds me of these tweets I recently saw.


    Typo making a tweet awkward.


    Alternately, misinterpreting makes an interesting image.

    Don't worry, native people also do wonky things with words.

    I've been wanting to learn Japanese; there are a couple hiragana I know from attempting to survive in (un)translated games like PSO2. I'm thinking of taking a Japanese class at my college, but overall I think I might have a better experience attempting to make friends in japan and going from there. HelloTalk is a good app for anyone who wants to practice Japanese in conversation. I've been told that I have my pronunciation down, but I think that's due to my experience with Spanish and it's similarity to Japanese.

    ^ I started out by studying JPN at college as well. It was a really good starting point plus having a teacher who was born in Japan with lots of anecdotes was really cool.

    HelloTalk is also very useful once you've got basic sentences down, especially with people being able to correct any mistakes you make.

    I was asked this week if I want to interpret for special guests and interviews at E3

    I feel like these will probably be live/recorded so I said no
