Japanese Education conducts education and research on Japanese language; but what is “Japanese language” to begin with? Scripts read by TV newscasters, or spoken words and dialect used by the youths are also Japanese language. Our daily conversation varies widely, too. For example, you would probably speak in different manners and with different contents to your friends or with your boss.
As you see, “Japanese language” is quite diverse and vague to your likings. However, if you look closer, there are rules within. You will for sure be dazzled with excitement and joy when you find them. Why not join us analyzing your casual speech of today?
