when i was a nihongo non-speaker before, i founnd it weird and cute because of the accent.

now after hundreds of hours of JLP classes, i find myself weird, but not cute.

we were not allowed to speak any language except for nihonglish(nihongo and english), during classes. so i got used to how nihongo sounds. There are times that i get tired hearing and speaking it and would really miss my native tongue, which is Taglish.

I find it a pretty language. It sounds muscular yet smoothing. Plus its easy to pick up unlike some languages where you listen for hours and hours and cant seem to turn your tongue that way to pronounce the word. >.<

if this is a duplicate, I am very very sorry.

I was always curious how it sounds to non-speakers. My friend told me when I speak it I sound mature and nice. What do you guys think?

And those how doesnt know how it sounds like, just write any anime names on the search button.


we were mistaken as japanese/chinese/taiwanese/koreans in our place when we talk to non-speakers of our language,but we're not those guys..we're filipinos with different language tho

for the question above,they have cute voices

What Japanese sounds to a none-speaking Japanese person is that it sounds Japanese.

It sounds really cool! And FAST. I'm trying to learn how to speak it [with the Let's Learn Japanese vids from CR, which are surprisingly effective] but it's like friggin tongue-twisters. So fast!
