But, no, I don't. Only if I'm talking about something Japanese (like with Japanese foods or something), or if I'm trying to practice Japanese (which I generally do in my own home by myself). Although sometimes I think in a mixture of Japanese, Chinese, French, and English, but that's not of my own free will. It just happens.


Im glad it made you laugh. It did the same thing for me. ^^

Yea, same thing for me. i only talk in Japanese about food or their merchandise.
I don't go around saying "desu desu" or "Kawaii!" randomly. One of my enemy does that a lot!
She learns a new word and then shows it off to me by saying it all day long. >__<



That sucks. The only one of my friends who randomly says things in Japanese is my Japanese friend. So I guess I sometimes I talk to him in Japanese. . . and French. . . and Spanish even though I don't know Spanish.

They must really think your retarded!

A 19 year old act like some 12 year old mindless fan girl!

Not to be mean but people like that make the anime fandom in America look bad. (this is why fans of anime are looked at as if there losers) And why anime is thought of as nothing more than Retarded Cartoons for kids.
Maby if you realize you giving anime a bad reputation with your actions you start acting your age, or at least start thinking before you act stupid in public.


END RANT!!!

I find that Japanese is a very interesting language, and I would love to learn it. That being said, going around using words like "kawaii" or "desu" in the middle of English conversations is a bit silly. One should either speak Japanese or speak English. It is the same concept for when people use Spanish words in English sentences.

One language or another, please.

I spoke in many different languages. Mixing them up. So only a few understood what we were saying.



I got to say what I wanted to my teachers.

I learned nothing from them.

Using broken Japanese (kawaii, desu, neko, baka) qualifies you as a weeboo. If you speak the language fluently....

Na I can't say I speak Japanese phrases in public, though I don't think it's bad for someone to use foreign phrases if they're fond of them, like the 'Kawaii' example above. All I ask is that you pronounciate it properly (though I can't think of many ways you could screw up 'Kawaii'...). The biggest peeve for me is people not taking the effort to say it correctly.

In anime, engrish phrases are peppered in abundance - choice phrases I hear across the board are 'Nice body', 'chansu-da (that makes laugh every time) and 'dying-gu message' though I don't see anyone complain about that?

Here In New Zealand, there is the native language, 'Maori', and it's common for people whether or not they are Maori to use Maori phrases (mainly greetings, such as 'Kia Ora'). It's all good for everyone, Maori or non-Maori, to use Maori phrases AS LONG AS YOU GET THE PRONUNCIATION RIGHT.

People might say 'thats different from westerners speaking Japanese phrases because Maori is language that belongs in your country, unlike Japanese in western countries'.
They may be right, but non-Maori in NZ are as far removed from the Maori language as Non-Japanese are from the Japanese language.

Hell, I'm part-maori, but I know more Japanese phrases than I do my native language (sad eh?).

No I don't. Sometimes my thoughts are in Japanese but that's about it.

Not that I'm ashamed of me being a fan of anime and stuff but I just find it illogical to randomly blurt out "kawaii" or "desu" in english conversations. That's just... pathetic. I actually think it's what gave birth to the term "weaboo."

Thats so Ironic. I'd like a friend who actually knows how to speak it and not have some fakers in the classrooms. They can't even say it right, even my last name. OAO

That really sucks. What's worse than just people who use random Japanese all the time are the people who don't pronounce it correctly. And then when you try to correct them they don't even care.

I have no problems with people who are legitimately trying to learn the language and speak it to practice or to teach others about what they're learning, but if you're using it just to try and sound "cool" or "cute" then it's really annoying.

Check out a song called, the Japanese Song, by the artists Bowser and Blue. It's just a bunch of random words in japanese, done to a beat from a popular song (which eludes me), but it's so incredibly funny.
