Does Rosetta Stone count as some kind of personal foreign language class?

srsly tho i know what you mean. It's kinda spazztastic using one word Japanese phrases here and there. I respect the culture and the language but i dont go around acting overly happy and use one word japanese phrases repeatedly seen in cutsy wootsy animes.

And its not like i'm some one that hasnt experienced japanese culture first hand either. Ive been to japan before. (visited my aunt in nagano). Hopefully ill be able to go back this summer.

Ok honey
Many people are interested in other cultures
So don't put them down for their feeble attempts to be Japanese
I dont see whats wrong with using romaji...
If you are Japanese, I'm sure you know how much the Japanese love America (among others as well)
EX: KATAKANA in modern Japan is used for foreign words
and Japanese music always finds some way to put English into it



For sure.
Its actually kind of sad that there's a whole alphabet dedicated to foreign words.

Even though I kind of agree that its annoying when someone only knows 3 or so words of Japanese and try to use them. Personally I am mortified to speak any language I only know bits and pieces of so I wouldn't do that, but really, I think that it should be taken as a compliment that people are trying to learn.

Most people think it's cool. Just like how some people in anime say words in English during their sentences. Just look at Sakurada in Great Teacher Onizuka.

Most of the people that TRY to speak Japanese in their english sentence happen to be girls anyways.

Haven't you heard of someone using the word "ciao"? It's an Italian word. Geeze, a majority of girls in CR these days say "KAWAII" instead of "Cute", annoys the hell out of me.



In my country, most people -me too- say 'ciao' (spell it: chao), intead of Adiós...



People tend to use words that are Spanish (Gracias), Italian (Ciao) and French (Bon A petit or however you spell it).

True, but if people are really trying their best, they wouldn't use the same phrase over and over again.
I really do find it annoying as well though. -_-''' TY for making this thread.

Its annoying but get over it. Theres other shit in the world you could rant/bitch about. Not like you can control people's actions so theres really no point in ranting about this either than sounding like an annoying child.

You ARE ranting and you ARE bitching.

As I recall you said it was only "okay" to speak it and not write it out in English. So you're trying to control their actions by telling them to stop translating it into English.

Well I applaud people for actually taking their time to actually learn a language instead of sticking to 2 or 3 words and claiming to know everything (people like that kinda annoy me). However, judging by the way some people on this site act, I know for a fact if someone were to post a thread about how much they dislike japanese using random english words in their songs or whatever, most of you will be on your heels, yelling at the thread starter to "shutup" and "dont be a racist!". You all know that would happen

YOU GUYS ARENT GETTING THE POINT
its okay to Speak it, but when you write it, its alll wrong it doesnt even make sense and sometimes
i even see it in Maplestory not even kidding, they even put "chan" "san" "kun" in their names.


i agree wholeheartedly with you. I'm not japanese, but it's pretty damned annoying to me..

I'm actually TAKING a Japanese class, so that i can learn the language (because i want to read the original texts of some of the BOOKs - not manga - that i enjoy)

And it really annoys me when kids are hey sempai-kun!!! or whatever the fuck these kids say.

And normal people, call those idiots - wapanese. Or just plain, retards..

Either way, i 100% agree with you.

*side note - It's nice to find another person the same age as me on here!

well, ok.. since you're japanese STOP SPEAKING ENGLISH and if you're so annoyed, just don't bother reading the posts that have jap words in them. or just simply shut up .

people are trying to learn japanese, whats so wrong with that?. not all of the people who toss in japanese words into their sentences learned the words from an anime. some actually studied/are studying it. -including me-

and as my profile says: "CALL ME "WAPANESE" IF YOU WANT. I WON'T CARE." Cuz i KNOW that i'm NOT wapanese.
