  • 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!

  • 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...

  • 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!
