Secretly learning Japanese during class - Lucas Gallindo - 08-06-2016 10:44 AM

Hey, guys! I'm learning Japanese and I think that if I listened to audios in Japanese during the whole class would be better: 4~5 hours doing listening surely will make me speak Japanese (do NOT comment about my learning method, plzBlush)
The problem is: Once I've tried to use small earphones with my smartphone hiding them using my hood. Result: I was aways afraid of the visibility of both.

My request is: recommendtions to do my secret Japanese passive study during class better.

ThanksPopcorn

You could try practicing writing Japanese script instead.

If you have dark hair, use black earbuds, or if you have bright hair use white earbuds. If you don't have long hair, turn the earbud upside down and wrap the cord behind your ear.

Sorry to comment on your learning method but I think you need some context for what you hear...

Anyway, maybe you could get wireless earbuds?

Japan interests me. Noam Chomsky pointed out that the two regions outside of Europe that developed economically were exactly the two regions that fought off European controls, the US & Japan. These two countries went on to produce a ton of creative stuff totally absent any real international competition, Movies and Video Games.

I draw a parallel, that the difference between an artist and an engineer is that one has a patron, the other an employer. The US & Japan had the freedom to spend their own resources rather than work for international production (China) and so pretty much no country has produced effective competition against the US or Japan for movies and games.

Both of these industries suffer from school and high costs of production

Also I love sushi, seaweed salad, shumai... I really hated the sencha tea that I got once, but I still wanna try matcha.

Studio Ghibli for the win. Final Fantasy, almost everything Nintendo... man, I find that place intersting. They were still rocking mitary nobility (samurai) until the 19th century..

Also, for business reasons Japanese is awesome because it seems like nobody races to learn it, and they are one of the few places where learning English isn't really taken seriously

Small wireless earbuds might work. Also, you could try just putting in one earbud, running the cord down through your shirt, and then covering that ear with your hand while leaning on it. The hand you don't write with.

Covert learning is just hilarious, shining a giant spotlight on how backwards our schools are. BETTER NOT GET CAUGHT LEARNING SOMETHING!!!

I asked to not question my learning method, thanks!

I have already learnt.

Cool, it may gimme a little pain because of the constant arm position, but it may work.

There's a Bitcoin address too now, in addition to Patreon. Anybody can use Bitcoin. Patreon is for the people who are long out of school and have a creditcard.

Interesting. I'm unsure if I want to get Bitcoin or not. It seems a little late to make money off it. However, it is an alternative means of online payment to Credit Cards, which involve fees and interest.
