Her students, a group of gaikokujins foreigners , had a tendency to commit faux pas and got themselves into trouble, offering the series a lot of comedy, drama, and charm. Each episode includes some esoteric knowledge about the Japanese language and culture. For example, in episode 8, as Haruko tried to help her American salaryman student Jack repair his damaged relationship with the head of a Japanese Saki brewery, she had to learn to speak a highly regulated and respectful form of Japanese, called Keigo. In episode 4, Haruko tried to help her young Italian student Luca with his love confession known as kokuhaku in Japanese to his crush Miki, a waitress in a Maid Cafe who tried to hide her regional accent. In the ensuing fiasco, Haruko and her students discovered how regional dialects evolved into what is known today as "common Japanese. But others like Sebastiano Serafini as the Italian student Luca often overact. Though the series is mainly about teaching, there are genuinely touching, poignant moments.

As she explained in an interview with Nippon.

Although it became apparent that not all students were volunteers, many of them being forced to learn by their companies or parents, she soon came to enjoy the lively multicultural atmosphere of basic-level classes. Umino mentioned how some beginner students had asked her to teach the Kansai dialect as spoken in Osaka. On the other hand, learners need to be able to understand both textbook and real-life Japanese.

Umino is also reluctant to lay down any ironclad rule on speaking. Cheating on homework right Kim usually does so well.

There were a lot of mistakes in your homework. What happened? But I got my Japanese friend to do it! Bring this friend to my class. Umino says that it is fine to do so, but that there is a time and place for putting that language into action. There are perfect moments for quoting lines from Star Wars and there are times when it will just be baffling.

Homework is due.

Well, what kind of essays do I have here? Rousseau says. Who said to write this kind of highbrow essay? She is fascinated by how new vocabulary emerges online.

The book aims to encourage Japanese readers to overcome their worries about the language barrier and communicate more easily with people from other countries. Yet some have found an easier ascent.

You can stick with Yoda, meditate and lift rocks in the air, or you can choose the quick and easy path, as Vader did, and choke people and shoot lightning bolts. As a successful dieter swaps breakfast waffles for muesli, Khatzumoto—while living in the US—replaced Western culture with Japanese.

It was on the Japanese one. After two years of rigorously studying these materials, he became fluent enough to land a job with a Japanese software company, without taking a single class.

Many set out to learn Japanese through real media and end up floundering. But coupled with the framework of a supporting syllabus, it might just be the best way to learn. This is a concept lost in the teaching of Japanese, with its emphasis on dry textbook language.

With kanji, I was taught to learn by muscle-burning repetition. I lacked a system. Enter James Heisig, with his book Remembering the Kanji.

Learning Japanese with Manga Author Umino Nagiko

Heisig—now a Nanzen Institute professor—taught himself kanji when he arrived here in using two innovations. First, he broke characters down into primitives with a concrete meaning and constructed stories around them. After training the reader with a few hundred pre-concocted stories, Heisig lets us loose on all 2, characters.

His second stroke of genius was to arrange kanji in a sensible order. The system gives you only an English keyword, not the Japanese readings. As Heisig points out, that puts you on the same level as a Chinese speaker—who already understands the semantics—and prepares you to pick up the readings from actual texts. You know, the fun stuff. The trouble is, once you get past the basics, much of what goes on in language schools seems trite, superfluous, and—worst of all—dull.

This year, the test is being subjected to a major overhaul that some argue is way overdue.
