Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles Hey Guys! I'm Loretta and welcome to my channel, KemushiChan! How's everyone doing staying home? New hobbies, new chances (quotes "Doctor X" on Netflix) Change and Challenge! I'm trying to use this time to try new things as you guys know, I'm a language maniac so I've been testing a lot of books and apps... er... well... *wHisPerss* Tik Tok *WhIsPeRs* nani tf? *wHisPerss* Tik Tok *WhIsPeRs* sorryy--wha?? My friends have been sending me tik toks! Some have even got me to join...a little bit! Seeing has I only have 4 friends and a dog now I'm still kind figuring it out BUT but thanks to my friends I realized that there are some REALLY funny creators and watching their TikToks has helped me learned more weird, fun Japanese so today in this video, we are going to meet my friend who is making TikTok seem like the newest best idea on how to immerse yourself in a new language. Sam: It's been a while! You know Sam.... I was thinking... let's do this video in Japanese! OH MY GOD. Just kidding! Hehe. That was a joke! Well guys, this is Sam! One of my bestest buddies here in Japan. She speaks Japanese. Basically, I live alone, unlike Loretta in a 25 sq meter cage! So obviously it was just a matter of time before I succumbed to TikTok It's BAD. I'm all dressed up today because I've been filming a couple TikToks! Cheers baby! Living alone in Quarantine, I need that " takunomi " (drinking party at home) L: So this one, have you seen this one before? S: this account? No. So check out this word: Eigo benkyou-chuu no piitaa to (Peter, current English-learning, and-") kikoku? Kikoku??? Hmm? S: is it "joshi"? L: Close! Swap that! shishosururelwljfrrrrr? shojo? shijo! So this word (kikoku-shijo) is not just for girls this is the word for Japanese children who come back to Japan after living abroad. (There's a stereotype that they're perfect bilinguals, etc.) Even though it has the "girl" kanji? It's like, Return-home Princess They lived abroad for so long they got a nickname. There's Peter who's learning English, and then Jason, who returned to Japan after being abroad. They're soooo rude at immigration (in the US) When you're not American and you go into the US they treat you like shiitake mushrooms. Even as an American they were like: WhaT Do YoU HaVE In YoUr BaG?! Me: ...kit kats....!??! DiD yOu GeT the BaNaNa FLaVoR? Me: YES Them: WelCoMe HoMe Me: OHMYGAWD Yeah, they never said Welcome Home when Iived in the US. Whaccha up to? Twitter. Howwwwww American! Hey hey, whats your favorite hobby? Gardening! Hooowwwww American! Heyyyy, what's the key to life? Inspire the Next! (Hitachi's slogan) Howwwwwww Japanese! He's from Osaka? Cute! S: Its cute I like it. L: You should send one. S: I have a whole list! (Loretta struggling with Kansai-ben) Raise your hand if you can speak Kansai-ben... I'm sending you a TikTok! Ten'in no Aisatsu! (How shopclerks greet you!} Convenience Store: irrashaimase.... Family Restaurant: Irasshaimase! Highend Restaurant: IrAarShHaiMasSee~~ Apparel store: *BACAWWWWW* *wheezes* SAM!!! This is why I'm addicted to this app! IRAIORUIOREIOMAASEEEEE This is what you miss when you don't read my messages! I saved your messages for this video... ...its not that I wasn't reading them.......... It's so good! Sam, explain. What are we seeing here. Irasshaimase, people say it here EXCESSIVELY. When you walk into a convenience store they say it pretty neutral. and then the last one, Apparel Store, omg. I heard, the reason people used the high-pitched nasal voice in stores is to use their nasal voice, not their throat, to save their voice when working all day. We're over hear croaking but it's just them try to save their voice. Japanese retail workers, THANK YOU so much for your long hours and work! The 4 suggestions I got were... ThePaperPat, HerAtlas and MayDaySan then a list of favorites from Eli I Guess They were all really funny too so, these honorable mentions will be in links below I'm going to leave this video to Sam the Laughter of Masts....?? The Master of Laughs? This jishuku (self-isolation) is really getting to my brain! BYE-lingual! This account, it's a couple. and they always make comparison videos of like a new couple vs. 3 years into a relationship the Japanese on this account is really really easy everyone can follow along, which is why I like them. CLICK! Mayu, I'm going out to eat. Wait, with who? When will you be back? About 11? Why? I told you! No you didn't! You never said you were going out! A girl? Are you cheating on me? No it's a guy, we talked about this!!! Mayu, I'm going out to eat! (Okayyyy) I'll be back about 10pm. Oh? So early. I'm going out to so... Wait, what? You didn't tell me? You're going out with a guy? Wait, you didn't tell me about this! This is great! This is funny! I feel like so many people try to make Japan seem weird and sooo different "JapAn Is So CraZy And DifFeRENT!" but see, THESE are the things of Japan I love the more you learn Japanese the more you learn people are EXACTLY the same. Exactly it's so true! Like you can spend hours learning how to say TodAYS NeWs RePorT in Japanese but then you actually go out and hear "my bento is SOOO crappy today. It's basically nothing but rice." Like what? That's it? I complain about my lunch in English too! The joys of language! The deeper you get, the shallower your conversations. She's like when are you coming back? After 3 years she didn't even come over! I'm going to be gone later than you! And he was like..WHAHAH She's just like, wow, home so soon? Which should I eat? HOW 'BOUT BOTH?! Both look good.... SO LET'S EAT BOTH! Ahhh I'm feeling snacky. Mayonnaise... SQUIRT SQUIRT SQUIRT SQUIRT My favorite is the vocab! "Kuchi ga sabishii" How do we say this in English? Peckish? Yeah like snacky! My mom's level of Japanese: In a restaurant: (SUDDENLY WANTS ME TO ORDER FOR HER LIKE SHE CAN'T SPEAK) But if my grades suck: (PERFECT JAPANESE): WOW YOU SUCKKK I couldn't process all the languages! It sounds Russian to me? It sounds Portuguese to me? She said Para Mi. Para mi is..."for me" right? One of my best friends is Brazilian... One of my best friends is Russian I don't know anymore... Eyyyy I like her! I know who you're talking about! I promise, someone in the comments, back me up! What a mess! I have a Japanese lesson after this! I'm going to be a total mess! Just EAT MAYONNAISE!! NEXT! This one is very anime... I mean, have you seen my shirt? This is very anime? It's from Zara Men's. [ conversation devolves ] Just think about it! They say it's ridiculous for you to wear make up in High School but graduate, and go to work WITHOUT make up and they say you're ridiculous again. so if you never practice wearing make up as a student how are you suppose to know how MAGICALLY when you become an adult?! I like her attitude, like "NOT POSSIBLE, AMMIRIGHT!?" Leon, you're half, Do you ever just like mix in perfect English in Japanese conversation? NEVER dude I would nEVER. don't worry I won't call SUPAGETTI spaghetti suddenly. The way he talks like, no NEVER dude! Oh, no NEVER dude! It's so physically hard to speak Japanese, and then in perfect English say SPAGHETTI it's hard to keep the rhythm if you change the pronunciation I was speaking French and accidently said "renshuu" in a French accent! My soundscape is SET sir! I would never be like, For lunch today, I ate a delicious HAmMbERRGERR I just ordered this tasty lookin SPAERRGHETTII. Secret Powers of a Teacher: Class, you didn't bring smartphones into my classroom right? Nope! I left it at home! Should we check your bags? Oh wait, but you're not allowed to go through our bags! Heh, is that right. Whatever. I know you brought your smartphones, anyway. It's impossible to confiscate them all but I bet I can catch a few of you... Oh yeah? How's that? HEYYY SIRIIIIIIIIIII Siri: Yes? Hi? Yes, how can I help? How can I help? Can I be of assistance? OK, everyone's who Siri just responded, hand over your phones! HE'S a GENIUS! The skit and this creator are so genius! HEY SIRIIIIII What is this, hey google!!!! You made my google go off! ( Sam's robot goes Skynet ) Wow, we crashed her! She reset! Sorry sir, this way is blocked. What's the problem? Sitting Seiza style. Seiza?! Are you kidding me?! How long are we sitting seiza? it'll be about 90 minutes? (Loretta: IMPOSSIBLEEEE) "Hi, it's me, Mr. Blood Cell." Ah yes, good work today! All flow is blocked at the knees now Understood, I'll go to the arms instead! Yes! Ah! Ok I'll do that! Thank you, we apologize for the inconvenience! This is a favorite! I love it so much! Hi, yes, it's me Mr. Blood. i'll circulate to the arms instead! So this one, I saw on a news program This lady looks really gungho, saying "We will win at all costs!" ...so I say... ✋ She lost! Wait, what? Sam I don't get it? She wants us to do something... with hands instead of a fist bump? Zettai katsu (Win at all Costs) She's facing the camera saying we're certainly going to win but she's making a fist, so he's like PAPER--- I WIN. You lose! Miss you dropped your handkerchief It's OK. I already have a boyfriend. you WAHHHHHH? But...you really dropped it... This... I uh.. what do I do... That was TikTok! Our lesson today is that Japanese isn't as EXoTiC as you think it is People are all the same, and TikTok is actually funny. Thank you, Sam.
