There's a group of four high-schoolers in my Japanese class who are good for quite a few laughs...today we were doing an exercise where one person pretended to be a phone operator and the other asked for a number. One of the girls asked for a mutual friend's number (provoking an explanation of "-chan" from Izumi-sensei). The other just went "...uhhhhhh..." for about thirty seconds, then finally remembered the word "wakarimasen".

The first girl then gave the classic response: "Baka!"

And the class burst out laughing.

Yeah, the whole bunch is easily amused.

My Japanese teacher addresses everyone in class as -chan. And generally comes up with weird random stuff, which only encourages people like me who like to goof off and pull in words and phrases learned outside of class...

I use "-chan" when referring to my older brothers, usually, meaning Lights gets to be called "Niichan" QUITE often.

My Japanese teachers think it's cute. ^^;
