MY THOUGHT 13985
REFLECTION 040: WHEN I WAS IN THE FOREIGN STUDENT LOUNGE AT WASEDA UNIVERSITY IN 1970, A JAPANESE STUDENT ENTERED THE LOUNGE AS I WAS ABOUT TO HEAD OUT FOR A CLASS. HE THOUGHT HE WAS COOL WHEN HE SHOUTED OUT “HEY YOU, TEACH ME ENGLISH”. AS I WAS STILL VERY YOUNG, I TURN AROUND WITH MY FIST READY BECAUSE OF SUCH BRAZEN SPEECH, I REALIZED THAT HE HAD HAD A TERRIBLE TUTOR. INSTEAD OF A FIST, I FORMED MY HAND INTO A PISTOL SHAPE AND LOUDLY SAID “NO” AS I HURRIED TO MY CLASS. I USED THIS INCIDENT IN MY CLASSES TO DEMONSTRATE THE USE OF POLITE LANGUAGE WITH STRANGERS. IF YOU WISH TO MEET A STRANGER WITHIN YOUR CULTURE OR FROM ANOTHER CULTURE, JUST POLITELY SAY, HELLO. TO GREET THAT PERSON WITH ‘HEY, YOU’ IS CONSIDERED DISRESPECTFUL. SOME SO-CALLED ‘LANGUAGE TEACHERS’ START TEACHING THE VULGAR FORMS OF THE LANGUAGE. WHAT IF YOU WERE INTRODUCED TO SOMEONE, AND THAT PERSON RESPONDED IN THE VULGAR FORMS OF YOUR LANGUAGE. HOW WOULD YOU FEEL? THE FIRST THING THAT THEY DEMONSTRATE TO YOU IS THEIR LACK OF RESPECT FOR YOU AND YOUR CULTURE. WHEN YOU SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE PUBLICLY, IT IS USUALLY NOT THE SAME VOCABULARY THAT YOU USE WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY. WITHIN ONE’S OWN LANGUAGE ONE IS BILINGUAL, EVEN TRILINGUAL: THE SHORTCUT PHRASES AND SOME VULGARITY USED ONLY AMONG CLOSE FRIENDS, FAMILY, SPECIAL GROUPS, AND CO-WORKERS. IT IS NOT THE LANGUAGE YOU WILL USE WITH PEOPLE IN POSITIONS OF AUTHORITY, FOR JOB INTERVIEWS, UR WHEN SEEKING COOPERATION ON ANY PROJECT THAT YOU WISH TO ACHIEVE. VULGAR FORMS OF LANGUAGE ONLY DEMONSTRATE YOUR FRUSTRATIONS, LACK OF RESPECT. OR LACK OF EDUCATION. EmilKoval©2018
