My name is Anya, I'm 24 years young and I'm currently working as an English language instructor for an elementary school in Osaka Japan. Before anyone asks my life is nothing like an anime, except for the school girls. Everything you've heard is real.

Well, I don't really see the point of dividing it into separate classes instead of just teaching them both parts at the same time. The progress might be slower, but at least they would understand something from it. If I were to learn a language by getting to know these parts separately, I wouldn't understand a tiny bit of it, except for repeating some learnt by heart sentences.

Well, if you don't hold any kind of grudge against me, I can say that we good. Sorry.

It's complicated and I guess kanji has this huge deeper meaning then just spelling out things. I could seriously write a novel about it. It's some complicated junk I don't hold grudges so your good in my book grudges tire me out too much. Requires too much energy.

All right then, I must admit that I didn't know that there are two separate classes for writing an speaking.

According to this, I think I owe you an apology. Or more like, I might have been a bit too harsh. Rigorous, more like.

Don't get the wrong Idea, I still think that a person who teaches a language should be able to speak it flawlessly and I don't think that it's a 100% good excuse. I just realized that my behavior wasn't perfect either.

On a side note, I can't help but notice how idiotic that system is. Writing and speaking should be considered as one, consistent matter. That's the way I learnt the language, I never had separate classes just for speaking or just for writing. I think it creates more problems for students. That's why I didn't even think of a possibility of such an illogical system being introduced anywhere, let alone in a country which puts so much stress on education.
#213 - bizengaust (07/13/2014) [-]
I feel you. Truth be told I was really taken aback when I learned that they where different classes. Even in Russia our alphabet is pretty complex they are always taught together. The more time I spent around the kanji system though the more I began to understand. Children start learning it from when they start school until they finish up in Junior high. With that in mind imagine learning that all in a span of a few years. It also translates differently into english just like russian does. our speech is a lot more simplified so you have to have them taught apart or the classes would be twice as long.
I know my grammar should be better and I actually do go to night classes twice a week to improve both my English Grammar and my Kanji knowledge so I don't have to rely on microsoft words spell check.
We good?

#170 - bizengaust (07/12/2014) [-]
I am. Not a grammar teacher though as that's a different class. Writing and speaking are always taught apart in Japan. There are a TON of different writing characters and to be able to convert them to english takes someone who has mastered all the Kanji. I have not gotten that far into Kanji yet.
I teach words and phrases such as "hello. How are you? What's the weather like today?" I make sure they say it right and grammar teachers make sure you spell it right. I could take more night classes to become both but.....yeah Kanji is complicated. I hope this eases you're doubt and can build a better relationship between us. seriously I have no beef with you? I think you're very bright.

A few eipsodes, you mean? I lived in Hayama and this channel had this feature constantly for the year-or-so I lived there.

こんにちは, random Japan-interested anon here. I really liked you're comps about Japan and I was wondering about something. When I went to Osaka 2 years ago, I was really shocked that there were hardly any free wi-fi spots anywhere (which doubled when I found out there weren't any at McDonalds or Starbucks either). Did you have a similar reaction when you first moved to Japan?

P.S. Could you include vending machines in a future comp? I'm still a little confused as to why they seemed to have one at every block.
#27 to #25 - bizengaust ONLINE (07/15/2014) [-]
I was at first yes, especially in the cities where you'd think it would be all over the place. The reason for this though is because they have special wi fi cafes where people can go and use computers or a wi fi connection. They are pretty much cyber cafes. They also have book shops like this to. I plan on working the weird vending machines into a comp in the future. I just want to get enough photos of them together first.

I will officially be downloading that song onto my Ipod. I do know some anime but not a lot I have a very limited knowledge but my students make sure to teach me what is popular. I read a lot of manga though when I was learning about Japanese culture in college though. Kaori Yuki is my favorite mangaka of all time. she did the Count Cain saga,Godchild,Angel Sanctuary,ect.

They can if you make it obvious that's why your there. Even if you do like anime you have to be very modest about it. It would be like going to England and assuming everyone likes doctor who as much as you do.
