How do you approach the issue of the language barrier?

In the dreamworld, we have no need for language.
We're able to understand each other without such a thing.

It sounds kind of dumb, but I try to have conversations with her in Japanese if possible.
She pokes fun at me sometimes when I struggle to find the right words and absolutely refuse to use a dictionary.
I've also been trying to read her source material in Japanese, but it's a bit difficult. My brain fries if I study or read Japanese for more than 30 minutes.
Every day until I'm fluent enough to talk to her properly.
>> No. 10318 [Edit]
I´ve guessed that, since she travelled a lot and all, she´d be pretty good at english. Thats sort of a middle step, I know that there´s no chance that she´ll speak my native language (something i can´t even imagine) and my japanese knowledge is not worth mentioning. So for now its english, until i maybe get myself to learn some japanese.

Osaka studied English for 3 years in Miss Yukari's English class, so I assume she knows somewhat fluent English.

For that matter, I know a very small amount of Japanese that I learned from anime, so I assume my accent, pronunciation, etc. is horrible.

And what >>10319 said. Love is the universal language. Osaka and I don't need to talk, but we talk a lot anyway. <3

Mostly, I ignore it. I just pretend we speak the same tongue within the context, thought she always keep her seiyuu qualities on it.

I am fortunate that she can handle English. Her fairly thick accent is adorable as well.

I should still try to learn some Japanese. Seems only fair.

By using it as motivation to learn languages.

I know enough Japanese to talk to her. When she talks back to me though, it's in English. Or somehow she just knows what I'm saying.

Nonetheless, it won't get in the way.

Reason #4,331,576 why 2D > 3D: She speaks whatever language you want to pretend she speaks.

Sometimes we have whole conversations in Esperanto, just for the halibut.

What >>10319 said is very true. That sort of telepathy-like connection is very nice.

We dont talk much, our introspect nature really dont demand much more that the occasional "goodnight" at nighttime. When we do we use English or my native language, depending on what we have to say, or simply at random.
I'm learning Japanese (willpower permitting) too. I'm eager to be able to talk to her in Japanese.

As a side question: How she refers to you? For me, her using my western name seems too unnatural, so I nicknamed a nice Japanese name for me.

For me her using my western name seems unnatural too so she calls me by my internet nickname. I think my internet nickname is the name I am most used to, so that's why.

She can speak English, so barrier isn't really much of a problem for me. But since she's so talented that she's so fluent in 6 languages, I hope I can be very multilingual like her so I can at least speak French with her.
Assuming she only knows Japanese? I would let her call me '竜' since that's what my name would translate to if it was in Japanese.

She speaks Britannian from her travels in the Witches, and openly laughs at my crap attempts to speak Karlslandic.

Since she's an angel, I'm pretty sure she's fluent in many different languages including english.

I love both of her voices, so its not a big deal to me.

Classical Chinese was the Latin of the Far East when she was alive. I'm learning Mandarin so I can read the books needed to teach myself Classical Chinese (from during the Sui Dynasty specifically, but it'll likely end up being the Tang Dynasty flavor, since the Tang Dynasty is so much more celebrated).

Edit: I must not have been thinking when I wrote this. Sui and Tang used Middle Chinese, which was contemporary with Miko. In any case, Classical Chinese is my goal.

Using the anime and manga canon as basis, she can speak English since she technically came from UK, specifically from Edinburgh
>> No. 13036 [Edit]
Well, for a year I've been "learning" Japanese, so I'd be able to communicate with her.

In reality I've been slacking, taking days off, and when I do study it's just for 20-30 minutes. Can't even read children's manga.

So I guess we wouldn't be able to be together.

I have no idea how affected by the barrier she would be. I mean, canonically she should be able to speak English but it's from so many centuries ago I doubt it that communicating would work out all that well.
>> No. 13134 [Edit]
If Shirou and her could do it I'm sure you two could also anon.
>> No. 13141 [Edit]
See my post >>10335, she likely doesn't know any form of early English (assuming she lives around 5th-6th century)

Although I would assume the grail could teach her English, it worked for Japanese.

I can't imagine he knows English beyond the few slang words he uses in the visual novel, and just based on his world, he probably wouldn't ever really have the opportunity to learn it.

I've been teaching myself Japanese but it's slow going. That said six months ago I couldn't read anything and I can read extremely basic sentences now, so it's something. Someday we'll be able to talk to each other normally, but for now just his presence is enough.

I'd like to solve the issue of the dimensional barrier first, once we solve that language wont be a problem.

Magic and telepathy perhaps? Then again they did say that telepathy was transmitted through Kyubey, but Homura got more power in The Rebellion Story.

Some loving gestures break the language barrier though... Sometimes I feel that I'm so socially awkward that if we actually spoke much it would make things worse, lol.

I don't need to.

And I'm also learning Japanese myself, so we'll be able to talk to each other in two languages.
