Learn Japanese like a Child

Postby Yo » Wed 11.15.2006 10:27 pm

I have Living Language Ulitimate Japanese and it is a good book but I get bored of it easily. So I came here to find some alternative way of learning. I read one of the lessons and it metioned something about learning like a native child would. Sorry I don't remember the author of the lesson. I searched the internet but I can't find any information on this. Has anyone tried this before or know any good websites or books?

Find a Japanese couple to adopt you, and you can learn easily!

I hope your really small,
Find a couple walking in the park with their child, has to look like you,
then have someone make a distraction and when they are looking away have someone steal their kid and you take his/her place.

Note:
You have to be waering the same cloths and have the same haircut as the kid, cloths can be exchanged quickly when you take the child.

If done correctly congrats, you can now learnd like a native child. :D

Are you a child? Obviously not. Take what is good from that idea, and discard what is bad.

That's a good idea but I don't know here to find anything about how they learn. Being older you could fly through the easy stuff a child learns quickly and advance like a regular student.

Thank you for those actually giving an answer but the humor is quite funny.

You could try the Pimsluer Approach. Their main purpose is to help you learn a foreign language as a kid would. And a rich kid at that. It's a pretty expensive set, but it's worth it. If you're lucky you can find it at the library like I did ;)

So you've tried this? I've heard its supposed to be very good. Learning from the beginning makes sense to me. I'll check the library and see. Thank you!

I don't know.. Ashitaka-san's maturity suggests otherwise.
