I was reading through my RSS feed today and came across this funny quote from Twitter about Japanese Guide Dogs.
Japanese guide dogs are taught commands in English. I guess “sit” is easier than “suwaranasai”. Especially if you’re a dog
It gave me a good chuckle and since I’m Japanese-American (unfortunately I know very little Japanese) I googled “suwaranasai” to see the Japanese translation. The literal translation(as mentioned on about.com) for “suwaranasai” in Japanese is “sit down”.
I’ll have to agree with the tweet above…”suwaranasai” is much more difficult to say then “sit”.
