Activity overview:


Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! You cannot believe your luck. You tell your girlfriend in Japanese, "You won't believe what happened." "What?" she answers excitedly in Japanese. "I've got a dream job. It's so good you won't believe it." Surprised, she asks in Japanese, "You got a job? Here in Japan? Well, your Japanese must be getting really good for you to get a job." Unsure, you explain in Japanese, "I don't know about that, but listen to this. I'm the new assistant of quality control at the Tokyo cookie factory. I get to eat cookies all day long and get paid for it!" Now your girlfriend is really impressed. She replies in Japanese, "Wow, getting paid to eat. How are you going to get ready for your job?" You tell her in Japanese, "I'm learning a whole new set of words in Japanese to describe foods I'll be tasting, especially cookies. I've learned the words for 'crunchy,' 'crispy,' 'fluffy,' 'hard,' 'stiff,' 'rich,' 'fatty,' even 'spicy' and 'sticky.'" Your friend dampens your enthusiasm with, "That sounds great...and your Japanese is improving, but you should talk to my friend. She had a job like that once, and she quit after a week." Bewildered, you ask in Japanese, "Why did she quit her job in quality control?" Your girlfriend answers sadly, "She thought she'd get paid to eat. Turns out, she never ate any of the cookies, cakes, or pies. All she ever did was taste a sample, write down the evaluation, and spit it out again. You don't get to eat, only taste." Sounded too good to be true...
