Thanks Francesca, I enjoyed the part of Japanese "eikaiwa (English-speaking)" TV program….;-)

Well, let me give you one funny "true" story. When I was in New York many years ago, I was talking with one of my Japanese coworkers.

Coworker A: "Hey listen, when a Japanese guy got into a bank yesterday..., his bank was robbed in broad daylight!"
Nobuo: "My God!"
Coworker A: "The bank robbery threatened him at gun-point, "Freeeeeeze!"
Nobuo: "And....?"
Coworker A: The guy did not understand what the robbery said so he asked, "I beg your pardon?"
…………
As average Japanese people had poor ability of listening so I knew my coworker's story was fact.

ahahah Sep 9, 2007

Thanks everybody, so happy you enjoyed it! I had that little music repeating "spare my life" or "take anything you want" buzzing in my head for the whole night..haha

Now I want to learn Japanese, I actually watched about 10 youtube videos to learn some basic phrases and now I want to buy a videobook to go further Any good suggestion?

To NOBU:
there's another video of this Japanese guy trying to speak or read English and this class who is watching this tape and everytime someone busrt out laughing, he was caught and hit with this big bat..It must be a sort of comic program, right? Here's the link:
