permalink Ok, this is a 2 part question. Please read them carefully and then answer them...

1. If you were to learn Japanese language, what thing could you do that would make you feel it was worth learning it? (In other words, what could you do that would make you feel satisfied about having finally become fluent in the language?)

and

2. If you reached the end of your days and you realize you never learned it, what would you regret about not having learned it? (In other words, what would you regret not having done with it ever?)

Remember, this is specifically about the Japanese language.[edit]Last edit by MonteCristo73 on Saturday 23 Oct, 2010 at 01:29 +1.6%[/edit]

permalink I would be satified with being able to understand the lyrics of many songs that I listen to. It'd be nice to be able to communicate with others that speak Japanese as well.

And If I do age, and don't learn Japanese it would be something I would regret a lot. I'd really like to go to Japan, I'd really like to understand what lyrics mean to the songs that don't have translations, And I'd love to understand manga/anime/books that have not been translated into english..

permalink I want to be able to understand the siong lyrics and Japanese films/dramas. I want to be able to read Japanese websites and write in Japanese froums. I want to be able to talk with the people. :RBhalo:
I will be happy with my Japanese the day I speak it as well as I can now speak Enlgish. That will probably be in 4-5 years. :RBblush:

If I die without ever learning it I will regret being such an inconsitent person. :RBconfused: To start learning it more than three times and never persisting. :RBcrying: I will regret all the things I never read/saw/understood because I couldn't read/understand spoken Japanese.

permalink i don't know if its possible for me to be able to be fluent

but i would feel satisfied with being able to hear lyrics or speach and be able to understand what is being said. At present i am able to understand simple sentences and simple lyrics in a general sense

my regret would be not having the opportunity to go to Japan and using what i'd learnt there

permalink 1. I could watch anime w/o relying on subs and I could understand the lyrics of the songs I love w/o relying on the English translations. So much stuff gets lost in translation. I don't know how many times I've watched a subbed anime and thought to myself "hmm that sub was a lil off". I can't help but feel that I'm probably not gettin the full intended meaning when I have to fall back on subs or translations.

2. If I die w/o becoming fluent I will regret not being able to go back to Japan and really submerge myself in the culture. I've been there once before but relied heavily on English :( I want to go back and be able to confidently rely on my Japanese. Maybe even get lost and be able to find my way back on my own?! That would be awsome!

permalink Ummm...wwell I would want to learn Japanese because I want to be a translator and if I relized at the end of my days that I had never earned it it would mean that I never achieved any of my future goals becuase that is one of the main languages I want to learn and I hope to study in Japan when I attend university.
I hope I answered your questions correctly :)

permalink 1) Being able to understand Japanese without depending on / having to wait for others translations.

permalink 1) Spending a few months in Japan and not feeling completely lost. Also understanding the lyrics to the music and being able to watch the movies without subtitles.

2) I would feel incomplete. I am intrigued by the culture, the history, the music, the cinema. Why wouldn't I put out the effor to learn the language?

permalink 1. To be able to hold a deep conversation and understand difficult texts.

2. If I were to never become fluent, all the friends I have made and could make would probably not happen. It would be pretty upsetting. T^T

permalink I love the way the Japanese language sounds and would love to be able to travel in Japan without the need for a tour guide since I've been many times with a tour. I want to be able to study and work in Japan as well.

I would regret not putting in the time to study more and would be really sad about not being able to gain the Japanese language and completely watch j dramas with no subs and be unable to understand jpop or hey say jump and unable to roam freely around Japan and sightsee without help
