Grappling The benefits of learning a new language

As Melbourne continues to stay in lockdown with everything shut... I decided to learn Japanese now I have a lot more free time..
The hardest part about learning a new language, i find is remembering vocab and getting it to stick.

So.. I was watching a few Japanese mixed wrestling matches and before learning, i had no idea what was being said.. now..
After a few months I enjoy the trash talk so much.. its so hot hearing the woman and knowing what she is saying.. and if I don't.. i can find out because I know how the sentence patterns work.. so its not only a learning experience its super hot as well ..

If i ever have a session Id love to banter back in the language saying i dont give.. or it hurts just to make it.more fun..

It would be great to banter to Spanish women, Italian, European too.. even if its just a little.

Just thought id share

Stay safe everyone

What does it mean when they say “hora” all the time? Hope I don’t mistake it for something else

‘Hora’ literally means ‘look’, but like many language translations it doesn’t directly translate. For example in the UK people say ‘sorry’ all the time which foreigners think is odd and disingenuous. But in the UK ‘sorry’ is something of a conversation starter rather than the literal meaning of the word...

I noticed when I returned to Australia that people said "sorry" when they bumped you in the street. It was such a nice thing. It was much different than the uncaring attitude of the US, Russia and China.

Another interesting cultural difference is how much people boast. English people can be frustratingly modest when you're trying to get information on someone's competency in something. Whereas Americans can be boring braggarts. Chinese like to boast about their country, which is silly since the individual bragging is probably not the one making the achievements. But we all know the strong girls bragging well is very arousing. This often transcends nationality, and can be unconscious or on purpose. Either way is good.

Americans also say "how are you?" *a lot*, which is confusing to Europeans. By the time the European has answered, the American has already walked away It really means 'hi'.

Learning languages is also a hobby of mine, but I must say, the typical language used in a session is very simple. It's much more interesting to actually read books. I've done sessions in multiple languages, but didn't really feel like that was stretching my brain.

This really depends on the city. In most of the US, I'd expect sorry/excuse me/oops/etc. But in some cities, like New York, you might get the cold attitude you're describing.

What method or methods did you use for learning a language? I'm not into session wrestling but I do think female grapplers look (ahem) fertile and marriageable. Right now I'm using the quarantine to drop weight and get back into wrestling shape. I have a friend in Brazil begging me to come down and start training there. It would be great to have some commend of Portuguese before I go.

Pick up a basic grammar book with a reasonable vocab distribution, talk to native speakers, watch movies, listen to music. Read online forums. Once you're able to, read newspapers, then books. Go to the country and don't speak any English.

There is an app called languagelearningwithnetflix or lln, that runs subtitles in the language you're trying to learn as well as your own language simultaneously. Its free to download. I watch programs in Spanish, with subtitles in Spanish and English to help with unfamiliar words or phrases. I use it to keep in practice and I'm not sure if it would work if you're starting with no knowledge of the language you're trying to learn. This has been helpful as I've been avoiding travel recently. You hear the language as it's spoken, giving you a better exposure to slang and local dialects.

There is some very good info in this thread, learning a new language will also help expand the way you think it's funny how it works. If you're up for it I wish you success.
