oooh...

have i mentioned here that a student of mine is from Saitama and another one is from Kanagawa?

if i haven't ... well, i just mentioned it now XD

yeah... cuz when i get to handle new students, during breaktime, i'd ask them where in japan are they from...

both of them were surprised that i knew that there was such a place as kanagawa and saitama

but they're not from iruma, saitama nor yokosuka, kanagawa.. but that's okay...

i made a list of my students' names and hometown/prefecture XD

three of them are from Nagoya, Aichi ... that's where Toyota's headquarters is... and this guy told me that Aichi prefecture is neither Kansai nor Kanto... interesting... so i was like 'So you're always left out!!!' haha

funny guy... sucks he left last thursday... went back to japan...

i like making friends with my students... i always tell them (in a joke) 'when i go to japan, i'll stay at your house, okay? i'll pay you some money but not as much as a rent in an apartment'

this one female student... is SOOOOOOO damn adorable XD

she's 28... but she looks like she's 20-24, give or take XD... she lives in Tokyo...

yesterday we were kidding around, she asked me 'what happened to ishikawa-san?'

none of my student's know of v-u-den!!!

i told her 'she does stage plays now... and she's in a combi with yoshizawa-san... so when you get back to japan, watch her plays so that ishikawa-san will earn money!'

and as always, she was all 'EHHHHHHHHHHH!?!?'

then i told her 'you live in tokyo, right? look for ishikawa-san!'

hahaha!

===

but yeah... most of my students have absolutely no idea what rika has been doing for the past 4-5 years

a lot of them said that i'm crazy... because h!p and associates were popular 10 years ago

i was like 'it's not like i'm just following trends from japan! Ishikawa-san daisuki!!!!'

haha

i like old things...

...

i have today off, so i'll check out the ishiyoshi going on in the world...

... this past week there was this re-posting shizz of old ishiyoshi sound clips @ 2chan... if you got the space for such things, go crazy! XD

i dL'd a coupled of them last night...


ooh, the 2nd myspace vid for ax must be up by now... i'll go check it out in a bit...

that's a serious thing, yah!

they don't know of v-u-den or ongaku gatas...

they're always going 'ehhhhhh~!' when i tell them what rika's been doing for the past 5 years...

apparently, they lose track of the girls as soon as they graduate from MM... most of them also don't know the members from 6th gen onwards, except fujimoto-san...

lol it's like i'm doing a thesis on MM's popularity in Japan XD

an english teacher to japanese folks...so will you laugh at them for their pronounciation? their pronounciation is so damn funny. i will surely laugh my ass off if i heard them speaking english...of course not all of them...some speak good english.

tru_harmony said...

… hmmm… I don’t laugh at their pronunciation actually… the other teachers do that though… it’s kinda annoying if you ask me… cuz it’s not the jap folks’ fault that they were born in a place where English isn’t an official second language…

I also have a lot of respect for them because they live far away from their families just to learn English… I’d never do that just to learn a language… I can’t… and~ my girl would kill me… XD

So yeah… so sometimes I feel weird hearing something that sounds like ‘Yes, Mekshiko Shiti is A shiti’ when I knew that his answer really was ‘Yes, Mexico City is a city’… and I try to correct it as much as I can…

But actually, the method that was assigned to me is more focused on word usage and sentence formations rather than pronunciation… we have teachers who are focused on pronunciation… others on nitty-gritty grammar... some others in word-object association and conversation… listening… and…. … writing.

So yeah…
