Japanese Characters and English Retention

writingwithcolor:

anonymous said: I know this is oddly specific, but: If a Japanese child were to move from Japan to America with an English-speaking (but ethnically Japanese) parent and live there from age 2 to 4, would it be at all possible for them to learn Japanese and English simultaneously, or are the languages too different?

Furthermore, if said child were to return to Japan at around 4 and remain there, and only spoke / used English as mandated by school (which I’ve read is mostly reading / writing anyway) how much of the language do you think they’d maintain at around 16-17? I love this blog already; it’s so honest and informative, and the mods are very helpful. Thank you very much in advance.

I had a Japanese classmate in law school who moved to the US with his baby girl, and from what I could tell she picked up both languages all right. They moved back to Japan when she was four, and I think they’re finding a way to keep her English fluent with trips back to the US every now and then.

Speaking in a more general sense, my cousin was born and raised in the US until age five, and went back to Taiwan at age eight or nine, and I think if it wasn’t for the education he got (he went to an international school after age 13), he would have forgotten his English already.

If your character isn’t going to extra English classes or having extra English tutoring, there probably won’t be a whole lot maintained at age 16-17 unless they’re motivated otherwise (trips to the US, etc.)

Anonymous:Hi! I was wondering if you could please help me on researching male strippers and the differences between male strippers and gigolos. thanks!

rphelper:

Here’s a pretty good guide on male strippers/exotic dancers. Here’s a post on exotic dancers that has a section on males.

Beyond tumblr, here are some links that should help you:

As for the differences between male strippers and gigolos, my understanding is that gigolos engage in sexual acts for money. Strippers don’t go quite as far. Again, this is just from my understanding. Oddly enough, there weren’t as many links that I could find as I thought I’d be able to.

Hope that helps!
