A Long Vacation Means Time to Study!

Obon was very fun and eventful. I always look forward to long vacations because that means I have time to learn more about Japanese culture and I have more time to study the language. For my Obon this year, I spent a lot of time with my Japanese friends practicing Japanese. It’s a lot of work and I am often exhausted after having to think in Japanese, especially for long periods of time. The sentence structure is very different from English and after a few hours, I sometimes get discouraged and give up caring about whether or not my Japanese is understandable. I simply say a mixture of nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and conjunctions with a few particles and hope the native speakers can understand me. They usually can, thankfully, and are very forgiving with regards to my Japanese. I think they’re just happy that I’m trying to communicate in their language. So for my students, especially my older students, who think long and hard about how to say something perfectly in English before actually speaking, I say to you don’t worry about whether or not your grammar is perfect. Native English speakers are just happy that you are trying to have a conversation and we can usually figure out what you’re trying to say anyway.
