I'm not taking/learning japanese, but I picked a little bit up :)
I'm not made fun of, cuz I'm asian 8) haha
but if I do see some non-asian or whatever taking japanese, I do think it's weird.
But I don't really care.
I'm just apathetic to the world, really.

When I'm feeling cranky I make fun of those who randomly throw in a couple of romaji words in English, especially those who don't understand how it works, e.g. "He's so kawaii, ne?" or my favourite, in a forum post: "Moshi moshi! How's everyone?"

Edit: I should explain that I don't agree with the idea of randomly mixing foreign-language words with English as I think it's pretentious as hell. This goes for Japanese music, too.

haha...i think the problem is more like how jap isn't well used...so ppl think it's useless to go and learn. and a lot of ppl think anime and manga are for kids. i beg to differ.

me and my friend are trying to learn japanese but nobody makes fun of because we just say stuff they dont understand and start to laugh is kind of funny because we say stuff like "i bet he thinks were talking bad about him".... kind of sad though

Hahhaha my friends say I'm Jap washed. But it's pretty convenient cause the anime they watched I had already watched >:D. And some of them always ask me to make them sushi. ^^ UNAGI ROLL FTW!

Me and my friends don't get made fun of(Beyond being called wannabe Asians, which i will say about myself). At least, with the people I hang out with or see, they come ask me how to say things or what things mean... It's cool around me to speak Japanese, but since our class got canceled, I haven't been keeping up with my studies.
[I'm such a bad host child... I haven't emailed my host family back in like a half a year! >.<] I personally, can read(trouble with kanji >.<) and understand a lot more than I can write or say, so it messes me up. I'm mad that I didn't get to be a group leader at Harumatsuri in the city again since our class was canceled.

Hehe, people poke fun at me that I am trying to be Asian. XD I don't mind. I would love to be Asian anyway, so it's partially correct.
