Re: Japanese

Sorry, that looked like 2 questions, but it was kind of a compound question.

Re: Japanese

Out of 10, I'd award myself:

English: 8.5
French: 6.5
German: 4.5
Italian: 3
Japanese 2

I've told Hisae that from New Year's Day we're only to speak Japanese at home, though. That should get me motivated.

Re: Japanese

Ah eh oo ee aw. (The extent of my Japanese).

If your English is only 8.5, maybe you need to look up a phrase dictionary and consult "self deprecation" to get the score up. It's easily better than that. Or maybe you meant version 8.5

Savouring the final clicks, by the way.

Re: Japanese

I docked a half point from my English for very poor knowledge of the names of trees and flowers.

Botanics, illnesses are mainly Latin.

Re: Japanese

I always blamed myself for not knowing trees and plant names in English, until I noticed I don’t know them in my language either.

WTF is a «birch»? Oh, it’s a «bétula». …but WTF is a bétula?
