  • SO true with the Japanese! I’m always telling my students never to use them. It’s the first flag that tells you you’re speaking Japanese with a noob haha.

    That emotional intelligence one was good too. I’d not heard of The Atlantic until recently, but they seem to have consistantly great articles.
