What I Say, What They Hear

I decided to make a few illustrations to show what it's like to be an English teacher in Japan. As you can imagine, miscommunication is inevitable...

“You say” sounds like the Japanese word for oil paint.

Pears in Japan are more like apples in shape and light green in color.

“Show you” sounds like a popular sauce.

“Yu” is a very common Japanese name.
