    Rarely do I find something that is real Japanese and is not that hard that can be used as learning material. I have finally come across that to make tonight’s mini lesson.

    Tonight’s mini lesson will be based on the youtube video below. Don’t worry, its not Negicco or Babymetal. Or HKT48. It’s 40 second clip from the New World arc of One Piece. It’s subbed which can’t be helped. You may the subs as reference to help guide you through the instructions and questions, but I highly suggest you do the problems without the use subs.

    1. Dictate the entire 40 second dialogue. In other words, type out every single line said in the video (in all Japanese of course).

    That is it for now. This lesson will be split into 2 parts. The dialogue you dictate will serve as the basis for the questions in Part 2.

    See you in three dawns. Maybe.











    That was kinda fun. Admittedly, I did sneak a quick glance at the subtitles for about 2 words I didn’t know; had the subtitles not been there though, I still could have typed the kana.



    I thought of taking a stab at this, but eventually decided that doing it on the iPad was just gonna be too painful. =P

    Nice job, thought. Looks about right to me. Not certain that she’s not saying 服着ろ, though.


    Hm, yeah, listening to it again, it might be 服を着ろ. Sounds to me kinda like fuku-uh kiro! – I think it’s just the を not being enunciated well that made me mess up.



    any other takers?


    Mark must be on holiday or something.



    Can’t tell if you think Michael’s wrong, or you’re just trying to trip someone up…



    No, I mean I’m glad that you 2 are participating but it’d be awesome if more people would participate, or or at least just try.

    Also Mark is busy with リア充 and making them greens (or whatever color they use for their paper money in Denmark).



    Purple, orange, green, blue and red. Like Australia, Denmark can afford enough elves to be able to paint their money in more than one colour. =P


    Yeah, it’d be cool if other people joined in too. There’s only a few I can think of that would be able to do it though.

    As for Scotland, our money is also pretty colourful:

    Admittedly, I can’t say I’ve ever seen those £50 or £100 notes before, not even in pictures. The thing with our money is that we have three different Scottish banks all producing different looking notes, plus we use a lot of money from English banks too, so our wallets are just a big mish-mash of different colours and pictures :P American money just looks so boring.

    Also, newer versions of our coins form a picture on one side, which is pretty neat too.

    Ooo, I’ve seen pictures of that around the Internet – thought it was British money in general. Didn’t realise it was just Scotland.

    Mind you, considering our hundred dollar notes are the green ones over here, I wouldn’t mind making a few greens. =)


    I should’ve been clearer there: when I said “our coins” I meant “British coins”, since all parts of the UK use the same coins; it’s just the notes that are different. We’re weird like that.



    Yup, this is the money that I grew up with

    Except 2 dollar bills are really rare



    I was given a $2 bill in change one time when I was in America. So pristine. I also managed to assemble a full collection of all fifty state quarters. =D

    Australia used to have $1 and $2 notes, but we did away with them a fair while ago – I’m old enough to remember their existence, but not quite old enough to have ever actually used one. =)


    Ahhh, so *that’s* why it’s “all about the Benjamins”, he’s on the highest denomination note :D Do the faces on the bills ever change, or have they been these specific people for as long as you can remember? English notes always have the Queen’s head on one side (as do the coins) and some other historical figure on the back that changes fairly infrequently (Charles Darwin has been on the £10 note for quite a while now). Scottish notes have landmarks on one side (castles, bridges, etc.) and on the other side (depending on the issuing bank) either famous Scots, Sir Walter Scott, or some guy called Lord Ilay.

    The UK used to have £1 notes, but they too were done away with… as far back as 1984 apparently, wow. Hold on, Wikipedia is saying one of the Scottish banks still issues a small number of £1 notes; I’ve both seen and used them in my lifetime, but nowadays they’re like seeing an albatross.

    …did anyone really care about any of that? Probably not, but it passes the time while waiting for more people to answer :P
