I can understand the part where she kept messing up the order on the words (cheese in hand vs. hand in cheese). It works the same way with French, and I think many other languages as well. English is weird.

Well Japanese only has less than 200 sounds in the language and English has well... More than I can count. A few THOUSAND at least. These girls are literally having to move their mouths and tongues in COMPLETELY different ways.

It`s not even that she`s stupid, it just that she can`t fathom how to pronounce letters other than the traditional Japanese letters, which are more like syllables.

As Guam is the most major tourist destination for Japanese, and they love to let loose off their island, I love to board a tourist bus, throw up my hands, and yell "Konichiwa!!!" They go ape-poo.

one way than another, but like I said, normally English words follow this pattern, so technically "more funny" can work, but "funnier" is more aesthetically pleasing to the eye and ear.

@f4ce73 "Funny - to change to a comparative, chage "y" to "i" and add "er" - funnier.

Engrish has never been funnier."


Actually, from what I`ve been taught, endings like that usually (notice I said "usually") follow these rules:

1-syllable words end in -er (e.g., fast is "faster" and not "more fast").
2-syllable words can have either "more" before it or -er at the end (e.g., "crowded" isn`t "crowdeder," it`s "more crowded"; likewise, "heavy" isn`t normally "more heavy," but "heavier"). It`s more of a preference with 2-syllable words, although some are either one or the other through constant usage.
3+ -syllable words usually have "more" before it (e.g., "interesting" isn`t "interestinger," it`s "more interesting").

Obviously there are words that work better on

"our vocabulary is made from that of many other languages including Japanese."

There`s Japanese words in the English language? Not many though... I can only think of tsunami and kamikaze (both of which are often pronounced incorrectly btw). There`s far more English words in common use in Japanese. Watch a subtitled anime and it`s fairly surprising how often you hear a word you know.

I know a little bit of German, although most of it is lost on me nowadays. I still remember how to count to 100 in German, though!

Eins, Zwei, Drei, Vier, Fuenf, Sechs, Sieben, Acht, Neun, Zehn, Elf, Zwolf, etc.

I`ve been thinking of downloading a program to help me learn some German, though. If even for nothing more than my own amusement.

"We have rather lax gramatical rules compared to other languages."
Yes but, that is because our vocabulary is made from that of many other languages including Japanese.

English is hard to use because of the irregularities(sp? my native language and i still can`t use it properly) of the verbs. We also have a larger number of words that mean multiple things (to lazy to google the correct term) e.g. the dove dove into the bushes. We also have weird plural rules, and other rules.

In short (TL;DR) We have rather lax gramatical rules compared to other languages.

Funny - to change to a comparative, chage "y" to "i" and add "er" - funnier.

I think it depends on people.

English seemed to me like the easiest language in the world. Even easier than spanish which is much closer to my first language (french).

And yes, that`d actually be how they`d spell it. I`d look up the katakana but I can`t be bothered.

And to all the people debating about language - English IS one of the hardest languages to learn if it isn`t your first language. Hell, people whose first language it is can`t even use it properly half the time...

I never thought english was hard to learn. But then, I learned it through TV when i was 4. Thank you TCC!

I also didn`t think French was hard to learn, but by the time I started learning in 6th grade, I spoke three languages (Swedish, Persian, English).

Issa: It`s because (at least in Japanese) there is no "l". In words where there is an "l", Japanese tends to use "rr" instead. They just have difficulty forming the sound because it never existed.

No, no it`s not. At all. English is one of the most difficult languages to learn, aside from a few east asian ones. Seriously.

Kadinski, you obviously don`t know what you are talking about.

Of all the languages out there to learn, (from a neutral standpoint) English, Japanese, Korean, and Arabic are some of the hardest to learn.

French and Spanish are only Cat 1 languages, meaning they are easy to pick up in 6-9 months, to a 2/2 level. I can`t remember where German sits, but it`s not very difficult either.

@Boomsie: "English is an incredibly hard language to learn."

Are you serious? It`s one of the most simple western languages out there. You want hard? Try German or French. Those are hard. Even the lesser known ones like Dutch are harder. And by the way: nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it ;-)

I give props to anyone who tries to learn a second language. It`s hard! No matter what language it is (I guess English and Mandarin are some of the hardest new languages to pick up though). White boy in the video had good Japanese though :)

Somehow this would be a lot less hilarious and embarrasing as compared to some American trying to speak Japanese. Just like Ninja Warrior compared to Wipeout.

They do. But it`s like with English students learning another language. It goes in until the tests, then they forget it all, lol. Except, it`s actually harder, since the languages are so completely different...

And I think this was posted here awhile back, but there`s another show with a similar idea. The difference being... You laugh, you lose. And if you lose, you get whipped in the ass. Too bad it was all guys though... *sadface*

I LOVE Japanese game shows...

takes me back to my years in Japan. I was lucky enough to be young enough to have learned the language easily, but, of sadly, I`ve lost most of it now. I tried to relearn it a few years ago, and it was much, much harder.
Oh, and for truth in advertising...yes, this girl is cute!
