    もともと名前は「とよ」と読むのが正しいものの、「ゆたか」と読み間違える人が多かったので、いつからか自ら「ゆたか」と名乗るようになった" #
  • Be a failure. Fail at doing unproductive things and fail at giving up. #
  • "If you don’t know to read it, you don’t know the language." #
  • Accepting permanent suckage is not humility. That's resignation. Sucking is a temporary condition. Contact is the cure. #immersion #
  • Oh, so it's ok to watch Tony Soprano kill people but if we read a personal development book suddenly something is wrong? **** you. #
  • What do you read when you're supposed to be "working"? Read that, in Japanese. #

  • It's very simple. Whenever hear a Japanese person, steal from them. Plagiarize every word they say. #immersion #
  • You will suck in the beginning. And the only thing you can do is keep sucking until you run out of suck. #
  • All Japanese All The Time | NIHONGO eな – Portal for Learning Japanese – #

  • 立ち机って何処に売ってますか? – 教えて!goo #
  • Housecleaning and language knowledge are alike in that both are simple, learnable skills that are erroneously attributed to talent #
  • Tidyness and language-learning are lot alike. Both are simple, learnable skills that get erroneously attributed to innate talent #
  • Sucking (being bad at something) is hunger. When someone sucks, we often deny them practice (i.e. food). We should be feeding them #
  • One irony of our society is that it's cool to know a language, but it's not cool to be doing the things necessary to acquire that knowledge. #
  • You have to decide whether the destination/language is cool enough to accept the temporary uncoolness of being "on the path". #

  • It doesn't actually matter how you're going to learn Japanese. The point is…you're going to do it. Done deal. Case closed. #
  • There is no "hard", and you don't actually "suck" at Japanese. You just haven't seen and heard enough of it enough times (yet) #
  • If you think about it 神戸 (こうべ) is "hard". It "should" be シンコ or かみど. But it's Kobe, and we're fine with that because we see it so often. #
  • Let no language (nor part thereof) scare you. Just increase the frequency of your exposure: everything will take care of itself. #
  • If you're having trouble understanding or saying something, all that means is that you haven't seen/heard it often enough yet. #
