So I had Japanese again tonight, and I was partnered with a guy who had as much personality as maybe:

or maybe:

Wait, I take it back. At least the sand has character.

It’s pretty much the worst thing to be paired with someone who seems absolutely disinterested in learning. I mean, I don’t particularly like being partnered up with someone I don’t know, but if it makes me speak better, okay. The least you can do is make conversation. This guy basically made me want to shoot myself in the face.

This is not the most annoying person in the class though, oh no. The most annoying guy is this teenage dude who insists on pronouncing about 1/2 second LATER than everyone else in the class, and pronounces all the words WRONG. DEAD WRONG. He also has one of those voices that carries. I’ve decided to give him one hard karate chop to the neck. That ought to keep him from talking.

On a similar note, I was looking for a “learn Japanese” clip on youtube, and instead I found this gem of a video on how to teach Japanese people English (yes, it is safe for work):

I’m not sure how aerobics helps teach Japanese women being mugged to speak English, but I’m not sure I DISlike it…

    One can be a character without having any personality. In fact that can actually MAKE one a character.

    In this woefull imbecile, we have proof of that theory.

    Laugh openly at him, and hide not your spite for him. Maybe he will react at some point, and a personality will be born.

    I’m hoping to bank on the fact that he normally sits at the back of the room, and I sit at the front of the room. We normally would never cross paths. I’ve been partnered with this dude who is married to a Japanese woman who is really nice up until last night because another man’s son didn’t come with him, so that guy went with the guy with the Japanese wife.

    I saw that too.

    I think we should have the same thing. Well similar. How about learning japanese with porn movies. That would be awesome.

    (oh wait. japanese people have that with english already! Angela postet that once)

    When I had japanese class there was this guy (similar to that stone) and our teacher went like

    “Felix-san. What letter is this” (holding up a card)

    Felix: “Hmmmm. Fi?”
