bobbyjudo makes me sad

The way he explains things in Japanese ....
Not many foreigners who can speak good Japanese can't even reach this far. So natural. These kinds of videos sometimes make me regret that I didn't really try to learn to speak English when I was in US. It's so easy to be lazy when you don't take this phrase seriously

Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today

日本語が上手な外国人でも、ここまでできる人はそう多くない。この手のビデオを見ると、アメリカにいた時、何故もっと努力しなかったのかって後悔の念に駆られたりする。 「今日できることを明日にに延ばすな」 という言葉を本気で考えずに怠けるのって本当に簡単なことだ。

I will have a new channel called lazylazy999.!



  1. I agree that Bobby makes Japanese look so simple! I only wish my Japanese will be as good as Bobby's some day. Keep trying Taro, you can do it! Practice makes perfect. :)

  2. 私もこの動画を見た時彼の日本語力、というか日本人との接し方が上手なのにすごく驚いたよ!同じ事を思った。語学って結局勉強じゃないよね。続ける事だよ。うんうん。don't be lazy.

    Yay! i look forward to seeing your new channel! hehe

  3. @XJ
    I don't know how he made it to be that much fluent. His name is not Bobby though lmao


  4. He is good but not exceptional in the sense that many many foreigners with native speaking spouses become very much like him (just not so high profile)! Don't feel sad, you are doing great!

  5. Hi Taro,
    I think you are good in English and improving by the day. Comparing ourselves all the time is NOT helpful. After all, foreign language proficiency takes time. It is a slow process.

  6. Thanks Taro! Seeing this post and someone speaking Japanese so fluidly have inspired me to take my studies more seriously. I am going to really put my all into my work and into my Japanese practice.

  7. I live in Japan, but still now do not know Japanese so well as he. But now I want to try harder and confident that I will speaks as he. I want it very much!!!!!

  8. hi there ive seen some of your earlier videos on youtube and im going to say.... really.... really :-P
    Im from the uk and my mother teaches english, the simplist way to learn new words is to break down to small parts also here some tricks

    rail or real is pronouced near to the same with rail you say raaauyl and with real we would say reeee (small pause) al with the word really we pronouce reuily like re...u..liey but say it fast :-)

    when it comes to ai its always pronouced like ale so its not rail....its more like ra..ale :-) hehe xxx

    i loooooove japanese so much but im terrible at learning languages at the miniute im tryin to still learn polish which is hard but its great trying to learn with a native speaker because they learn from you and you learn from them :-) good luckto the future.
