Why You SHOULD Learn Japanese From Anime

38 Просмотры
The idea that you “Shouldn’t learn Japanese from anime” has been pervasive in the Japanese learning community for quite some time. The argument is usually that because the Japanese used in anime doesn’t reflect how Japanese is used in real life, learning from anime will lead to an unnatural and off-putting way of speaking the language. In this video, I deconstruct this myth by explaining that the differences between “anime Japanese” and “real life Japanese” are largely surface level, and that even if you mainly learn through anime, learning to shift your speaking style to be more in-line with “real life Japanese” will not be difficult.

Although I’ve had the idea for this video for a while, I was inspired to make it now as a response to the recent episode of the “Trash Taste” podcast titled “Don't Watch Anime to Learn Japanese”. The hosts, Joey, Connor and Garnt (Gigguk), only talked about learning Japanese for the first 15 minutes of the 2-hour podcast, and the topic of learning from anime only came up briefly. So, I assume they titled the podcast episode that way largely for clickbait purposes. Nevertheless, I figured it would be a good opportunity for me to make this video.

I want to make it clear that I’m a fan of all three members of the Trash Talk podcast and harbor no animosity towards any of them! That said, I do think they have some misguided views on topic of language learning. My hope is that Connor and Garnt will see this video and realize that their love for anime is actually their greatest asset when it comes to learning Japanese!
