Japanese Body Language and Gestures #3 - Japanese Body Language and Gestures 3
Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! Gestures are all around us. We make many gestures every day. So many gestures do we make that we are often unaware that we're making them. They've become second nature to us. Just the same for the folk in Japan. Japanese use many gestures, but they're not the same ones we use. Do you know that some Japanese gestures are thousands of years old? Of course, they may not mean the same thing as they did a thousand years ago. That gesture meaning, "Your donkey is sitting in my cabbage patch making bad smells," probably isn't used any more. Learning the gestures of Japanese culture is even more fun than learning the language itself. Learning Japanese with JapanesePod101.com is the most fun and effective way to learn Japanese! This Japanese lesson teaches you one of the everyday gestures used in Japan. You will learn how to say and gesture, "Me?"

Learning Japanese Through Poster Phrases #2
Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! Your job hunting in Japan was successful; you landed a great job. You passed all the tests in Japanese, and you have impressed your boss with your work. Now, however, you face another challenge. You must negotiate your way to work on the Japanese train system. You've heard tales from your Japanese friends about the horrors of the trains, people rushing to get in at the last minute, people squashed against each other for the long ride into the city. It sounded dreadful, but it's still the quickest, least expensive way to get to work. In the train station, you begin to notice the signs, not the signs for where to find the train of your choice, but signs in Japanese saying, "Slow down, don't rush." Good advice on those posters. You can't imagine rushing into the train doors right before they close. It sounds so dangerous. What if the doors didn't stay open as you pushed through them? Would the train start moving with you stuck in the doors?! Surely not, but you don't know for sure. Fortunately, you meet one of your co-workers on the platform and you help each other to negotiate the Japanese trains. Learning Japanese with JapanesePod101.com is the most fun and effective way to learn Japanese! This Japanese Poster Phrases lesson explains the posters you will find in the Japanese train stations warning you not to rush into the cars as the doors are about to close.

Learning Japanese Through Poster Phrases #1
Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! "Did you buy your ticket?" your friend asks in Japanese. "What ticket?" you answer. You didn't know you needed a ticket.

"Autumn Jumbo," your friend says excitedly in Japanese, "It's the biggest chance to win money in Japan, 200 million yen. 200 million yen! You better hurry up...read the poster! There is a limited number of tickets available!" Confused as usual, you ask in Japanese, "What do you mean it's a chance to win money? How do you win money? Do I still have time?" Your friend patiently explains the rules of the game in Japanese and you begin to understand. It's sort of like the lottery back home, only the rules are a little different. Another friend shouts in Japanese, "If you don't hurry up, they'll sell out!" Your Japanese friends gather round to tell you how excited they are about the upcoming announcement of the winner. They all bought tickets - some bought a lot! Still filled with a million questions, you ask in Japanese, "Do you win something if you only get a few of the numbers right?" However, they don't seem to know all the rules either. They all have their eyes on the immense first prize of 200 million yen. Still probing, you ask in Japanese, "What about taxes? Do you have to pay Japanese taxes on the winnings if you win?" Your question is met with blank stares and shrugs. Their eyes are beginning to glaze over at all your questions. Maybe you should just let them have their fun... Learning Japanese with JapanesePod101.com is the most fun and effective way to learn Japanese!
