@Geckonyc @benoit Is it "est" or "c'est" in this case?

I'd search for it, if only I had access to a search engine other than Baidu ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Reddit and Twitter are blocked here in ... Have any Mastodon instances been blocked yet? Are there any instances hosted in China?
@Gargron

There are plenty of these in the streets around our hotel in . I don't know if they still work...

@kai It's sansai (ๅฑฑ่œ), not sensei (ๅ…ˆ็”Ÿ) :ablobspin:

@TheGibson ...and especially, I never see one casually hanging by the entrance of a fancy hotel, as if nobody thought that guests could find it a bit disturbing... ๐Ÿ˜•

Has anyone solved the age old problem of not forgetting you made tea while waiting for it to cool?

@kai @tootbrute Studying every day on Bunpro for a few months helped a lot. I feel I can now conjugate Japanese verbs just fine, although not yet at conversational speed.

I tried learning verbs "naturally", but after years of watching anime and having simple conversations I hadn't made a lot of progress. One issue (perhaps the main issue) is that strangers don't correct you as long as they can figure what you're saying. Even most friends won't point out your mistakes.

@kai @tootbrute Don't you also feel that Japanese has a disproportionate amount of learning software relative to Chinese?

I can't help bu think that's due to all the geeks who love both programming *and* manga / anime :anime_mistake:

@emsenn @fribbledom I only ever heard that word pronounced by the 8-bit Guy, and had no idea how to spell it (in fact, I found various spelling variations ๐Ÿ™‚)
