  • Mood:
Most of class today was really boring...it was like everyone (except Izumi-sensei) had a late night, not just me. For the first forty-five minutes, my only amusement was the "got manga?" shirt the girl next to me was wearing.

Things picked up just as class was ending, when she was talking about shimasu (which is apparently their way of verbing nouns)...

Izumi-sensei: "mata [time words] denwa shimasu" means "I'll call you back [time words]"... *goes on to explain and give examples*
Me: *raises hand* Could you say "mata denwa shimasen" to mean "I'm not calling back"?
Izumi-sensei: You'd want to use "moo", for "anymore"--"moo denwa shimasen". But that sounds kind of mean...


Then, a few minutes later, she's doing an exercise with the class where you're calling a restaurant to make a reservation...

Izumi-sensei: moshimoshi.
Class: *silent for a few seconds*
Guy: autubaku suteekihausu desu ka? (Probably fucked up the name mangling...)
Class: *bursts out laughing*

I love this class.
