how often do you study Japanese?
#21
I'm wondering if taking advanced Japanese language cources at Uni is a good idea or not. I dunno what

to expect. I'm pretty fluent when I talk but I'm not on a business level or anything! I cant discuss

Japanese literature for shit!!! D
I'm only here for this moment

If you have an interest and

want to improve your Japanese, take the course.

My sister is studying advanced Japanese in an Australian

university and it's improving her Japanese. She's frequently top of her class but my mother helped her

out with some of the essays. You know how good my Japanese is and she's just as good (or bad depending on

what you think about my Japanese [Image: hmm.gif] ).

I love

analysing literature and discussing it. Therefore it breaks my heart when I cannot express what I think of

literature in Japanese. It's like being gagged and wanted to shout out something. [Image: down.gif]

At

TOTALLY!! I try to keep

up with my kangi but it's so easy to forget them! Even after you've practiced writing it ten or

twenty times! [Image: sad.gif] I hope to be able to read the newspaper

It's

harder when you don't live in Japan.
I graduated Japanese school in 2003 and in spite of the short length

of time (2 years), I have forgotten a lot.
Speaking and reading Japanese is still easy for me, but sometimes

when I have to write a kanji on papaer I have to think about it.

When

you take a placement class for a world language, in college, is there an oral exam? My conversational Japanese

is MUCH better than my writing skills... (kangi... so frustrating) so if it was just a regular paper I would

probably be in second-year Japanese or something...

In my

uni there was a written, oral and listening exam. My school sucks. In this instance they considered me Japanese

so I'm not allowed to take Japanese language courses.

I heard there was a possibility of that

happening to me too...

but I asked some uni (not the one I'm attending) and they said its

alright?

I would DIE if I dont get to study Japanese.

A

definite mark booster.

Anyways, if they talk to you, just pretend you don't speak any Japanese and

just scribble anything when they ask you to write hiragana. My sister did that and is currently taking 100 level

Japanese.

Yeah totally!
I don't think I could keep up with that lie for a whole year. Nor could I stand the

class. 100 is <b><i>basic</i></b> Japanese. My sister said that her class first started with hiragana,

katakana and then 50 kanji so it was extremely easy.

definite room for improvement.

Question though: why did she do it?

Just so she can take some kind of Japanese classes? kinda cute tho

The only reason I plan to take

Japanese is so I'd improve. I need to brush up my Japanese to the max

She took

it to raise her GPA for med school.
My sister went to 補習校 until 中3 so she

is pretty advanced.

It's a shame that my uni doesn't offer advanced Japanese classes (ie)

literature, translation. [Image: sad.gif]

I

got my 中一textbook a few months ago and it's really hard. I can read more kangi than I can

write, so it's okay, but boy do I have to drill hard for those
