  1. 同意です。
    僕も話せなかったけど、その2週間にどんどん話せるようになりました。気にしなくて楽しんで下さい。

  2. 質問を答えてありがとうございました。日本に旅立つの時に大丈夫になると思います。それより、楽しんで話の能力が上がるでしょう。

    緊張が下がりました。勉強する時間ですね!

    • 役に立ててよかった。日本から帰ってきたらここでその経験について書いて頂いたら嬉しい。

      • 了解~

        やっぱり、日本にいる一日目は話すとは下手だったんだ。でも話せば話すほど、少しずつ自信が上がった。問題は日本語の能力じゃなくて「自信」だった。まだペラペラと話せないと思うんですけど話せるようになったね。

        さらに、日本に行ったお陰でどういう勉強すればいいかよくわかった。JALUPにおすすめされているよく小説を読む事と「passive listening」がもっとすればいいと思っている。

        みんなさん、いま話せなくても気にしないで。日本語が大体わかったら話せるようになるための道は簡単だね。勉強して日本語で話したらいつか必ず日本語がうまくなれると思います!

        • 無事に日本に行けてよかった!貴重な第一印象も書いていただいてありがとう。Jacobさんはあっという間にスピーキングのプロになるよ。

  3. This might be a little bit of a pain, but I was kind of hoping to see Japanese subtitles as an option in the video. This kind of explanation about learning Japanese and describing it correctly in Japanese is a common occurrence when surprising people with Japanese in places they least expect. Plugging some sentences from your explanation into Anki would help smooth that dialogue up a little bit. I know it would be some work, so I would understand if time doesn’t permit, but if possible I think it would be beneficial. As always, keep up the good work on the site!

  4. Wow these are amazing! Thank you so much. The japanese subtitles are great! Did not know the kanji for Narita, plus I learnt a new word ‘必死’.Well its second meaning at least. I actually didn’t realise it was that word when I heard it, thankfully the subtitles cleared it up for me.

    曖昧の時は字幕が本当に便利だと思う。特に漢字が聞きづらいなら。

    By the way, Adam added them for the first video too! Thanks so much, definitely adds to the replay-ability of videos !
