As a result, I have to attribute my knowledge of Japanese have absolutely been hightened by TV. The thing about Japanese Variety TV (Not the silly dramas. Don't need any of that stuff. Variety shows are where the fun is at) is that a lot of what is said is also written on the screen. It absolutely helps to see how things are written in tandem with what is being said to help learn things right? Definitely. That, along with the fact that I love quiz shows too, have helped learn a whole buncha things I couldn't've known otherwise. As for Korean, everything came from TV.
Good stuff TV. DOn't ever let me down.
If only US TV would get into the Japanese groove of things... *shakes fist*
