what to do with japanese


Recommended Posts

I thought this thread was about "what to do with the japanese" as in the people, in which case I would have suggested we kill 'em all!

But not really.

As far as what you should do, I say just do the bare minimum. No reason to work too hard at anything, especially something as stupid as Japanese.

Unless you plan on working for an American company that does business with Japan (Ford, Chevy, CAT, Turner Construction Company, etc.), a Japanese company in the USA (Toyota, Sega, Nintendo, etc.), translating, have lots of Japanese friends, get married to a Japanese guy, or something similar to that effect, I wouldn't bother with the language. It gets complicated fast & if you have no one to practice with, you're screwed!

むずかしい! ('o' ) !!

That's not what I've heard from people I've worked with... :huh:

The reviews have been generally 50/50... some really like it and some can't stand it, and others are pretty neutral.

Yeah, that's the impression I've gotten from the people who've lived there for a while.

Lindsay, I think you would benefit from knowing Japanese in many ways. And there are a lot of benefits to knowing any foriegn language. I'd suggest taking it seriously, but not killing yourself over it or anything, just learn the material as best you can.

I say don't stress yourself about it unless you seriously plan on getting a job that has you doing business with/in Japan, or you plan on going there for a good deal of time. I'd suggest still doing a bit of work, since you never know when that can come in handy.
