  • So

  • It's been a few weeks since I started going to driving school here in Japan.

  • I'm definitely getting more confident,

  • and today, I finally get to head out on the public roads for the first time.

  • - Hey guys.

  • Good news!

  • I got my Learner's Permit in just under two weeks.

  • It was really intense.

  • I came to school for four hours a day everyday

  • and then I took the test and I passed.

  • I'm really excited.

  • With this, I can actually go on the road

  • which is great.

  • I'm really happy to get outside of the school

  • because after 12 hours of going around in circles,

  • you start to go a little bit steer crazy.

  • So today, with Yamaguchi-sensei,

  • we're gonna head out on the road

  • and we're going to encounter the dangers

  • of everyday life driving.

  • I'm so nervous.

  • I'm so excited.

  • (speaking in foreign language)

  • Okay!

  • (upbeat rock music)

  • (speaking in foreign language)

  • So before I can graduate, I have to take a driving test

  • and one more written test

  • and the driving test will be one of four courses.

  • There are four courses throughout the city

  • that we have to practice and then on the day of the test,

  • one of those courses, I don't get to choose which one,

  • will be chosen at random and then I'll have to drive it.

  • So today, we're gonna practice one of the driving courses

  • that I need to be able to know

  • for the graduation exam and I'm really nervous

  • 'cause we're all just scary.

  • People are scary.

  • You can't predict what other people are thinking

  • or what they're gonna do so,

  • I don't know, I'm gonna try my best

  • and hope that we don't die.

  • (upbeat rock music)

  • (speaking in foreign language)

  • (relaxing music)

  • Hey guys, how's it going?

  • So a few people had some questions in the last video

  • and they wanted to know if I was taking courses

  • in English or Japanese and if I'm going to take

  • the test in English or Japanese.

  • And I've decided to take them in English.

  • I would love to challenge myself.

  • I would love to challenge myself in this setting

  • and try to do everything completely in Japanese

  • but the problem is, and I think that this is universal,

  • I think that this is the problem with every driving test

  • all over the world.

  • The wording in some of these questions

  • is just so convoluted and strange that I feel like

  • this isn't about proving my Japanese language ability,

  • it's about proving my ability to drive.

  • And instead of studying grammar and struggling to understand

  • these questions that are meant

  • to be really hard to understand,

  • I'd rather just focus on the driving.

  • I don't have time for this, I'm getting old.

  • Now to explain why it's tricky,

  • I think you kinda have to have a understanding

  • of both languages.

  • For example, the very first thing that we learned

  • in the school is that a kuruma and a jidousha

  • are different things which is hard for me

  • because as a foreigner, I was taught that kuruma equals car.

  • How do you say car in Japanese?

  • Oh, you say kuruma.

  • It's been ingrained in my mind that kuruma is car

  • and like, that's the word.

  • But actually, the correct word for a car is jidousha.

  • A jidousha is like an automobile.

  • A kuruma can actually be anything with wheels that move.

  • So it could be a bicycle, it could be a tractor,

  • it could be a motorcycle.

  • Any of those are technically a vehicle, kuruma.

  • So, for example, to give you an idea

  • of how difficult these questions can be,

  • say they give you a photo of this sign

  • and underneath is a true of false statement that says,

  • (speaking in foreign language)

  • This would actually be wrong

  • with the correct statement being,

  • (speaking in foreign language)

  • and the difference here is that a kuruma

  • can be any vehicle where a jidousha is definitely

  • 100% only a car.

  • The other thing I have trouble with

  • and I don't think this will apply to everyone

  • but I have always had trouble figuring out

  • my lefts and my rights.

  • And in English, I can say, oh, left is the L hand

  • and right is the hand that you write with.

  • Now I might just be really stupid

  • but whenever someone shouts to me to turn left

  • or turn right, I always take a few seconds

  • to confirm with myself, okay, left, right.

  • Hidari, migi.

  • But when it comes to driving,

  • and this is kind of frustrating,

  • they don't use left and right,

  • they use the words usetsu and sasetsu.

  • Usetsu and sasetsu.

  • It's just I have a hard enough time

  • determining my lefts and my rights as it is

  • so when we throw in a completely different word

  • just for driving it's,

  • I can't do it.

  • The good news is I do find this super helpful.

  • At school, they have English tests.

  • These are all questions I've gotten wrong by the way.

  • These are all questions that I've gotten wrong.

  • I write notes everywhere.

  • I write notes everywhere because I don't wanna fail.

  • I don't handle failure well

  • and a lot of you guys talked about

  • how driving gives you extreme anxiety

  • and am also one of those people

  • who can cry really, really easily

  • I really don't wanna put myself in a situation

  • where I am gonna cry in front of everyone

  • and it's gonna get embarrassing

  • so I really wanna pass.

  • I'll be taking actually my final pretty soon

  • and I am really nervous so my plan is just

  • until that day, until the final test,

  • I am going to study meticulously.

  • I don't know man, I hope it goes well.

  • Okay guys,

  • wish me luck.

  • Pretty sure when test time comes around,

  • I'm gonna forget everything.

  • I hope I studied enough.

  • (relaxed music)

  • Okay, we just finished the test

  • and it was a lot harder than I thought it was gonna be.

  • There are a lot of questions I wasn't prepared for

  • and I'm not confident that I passed this time.

  • We're just waiting for the results now.

  • (bell rings)

  • I hope my number will be called but if not,

  • I mean, it's not the end of the world.

  • There are a few questions I should've brushed up on anyways.

  • I left this whole week open so I can come back

  • just in case I did fail so it's not a big deal.

  • (announcing in foreign language)

  • (upbeat music)

So
