- Jul 30, 2010Sometimes dramas can be good for getting used to how the language sounds.
But it's important to remember where the media itself comes from and what
time/location is being portrayed. They also sometimes have the exaggerated
speech problem though not as much as Anime. There are a lot of different
accents inside Japan and on top of it there are language differences based
on time period. Some historical dramas for instance purposefully use older
Japanese or a combination of modern and older vocabulary to give it a dated
feeling. If you're just trying to get used to hearing different sounds and
don't care about actually speaking the language it might not be too
horrifically bad. But that's not even getting into the odd sounds that get
introduced the more people slur or use slang. Once you're used to the base
sounds Japanese can sound very different based on all this stuff.
