  • Nice tie - they will be pleased to see you wear it :)

    Question: When I have to speak French for any length of time, it makes me tired, but this could be because I don't use it enough. Did this happen to you when you first used Japanese? Do you now speak it without thinking too much?

  • Olivia, it tires me sometimes when I think about what is going to came out of my month in English. I sometimes spend a few seconds thinking before I begin and whomever I am talking to is waiting for an answer or a response :)

    Nice tie...Mabrook :)

    Speaking German has never made me all that tired, but speaking Japanese still kills me. You see, German and English are similar enough that I can think in one and still speak the other to some extent. I can't think in English and speak Japanese, or vice versa. Thinking in Japanese can wear me out if I hadn't had enough caffeine and/or glucose.

    I'm notorious at Ye Olde Academy for falling asleep during meetings simply because all that Japanese dialog going on around me (especially the speech of academic types, i.e. loads of big words) burns me out fast.

    10-Q berry punch.

    That sure sounds familiar! I think pauses like that happen a lot in international dialog. ;-)

    BTW, nice to see you! It has been a while since you've either appeared here or responded to anything I put on your blog! I was beginning to think I'd said something that had put you off (as I seem to be doing a lot lately...), and you were giving me a cold shoulder!

  • Wow, and you've held out there for 17 years? Wow.

    Leilouta, you're brave too.

    See both of you, Moody and Leilouta, are speaking languages that use different characters than their native tongues. My brain hurts to think of it, because Greek is relatively close to English and that's fine, but Jp or Arabic would kill me.

    Plus I heard Japanese was the hardest language to learn.

  • Hehehehe *evil grin*
    Anyway you have done it with a good revenge, thanks! :P

  • I have had to return every tie I ever got. One end was always longer than the other!
