If you want to chat, you have to lead the conversation. Do you have anything interesting to say?

I watched Lain too long ago to remember anything.

I could tell you're not comfortable with it even if you didn't mention you're still learning. I can understand everything you're saying, but it's definitely awkward. I suggest reading a lot of visual novels and watching anime with English subs to get practice. Lurking imageboards is also good.

I've played only a few. I'd recommend Saya no Uta if you are new to the medium. It's short, good and easy to get.

I have installed on my computer Katawa Shoujo. But i installed it with Russian translation. Also Steins;Gate, but it's have no nice Russian translation and i shall play on English.

  No.1620

Play Katawa Shoujo in English too. It's the language it was originally written in, and the Russian translation is probably garbage. You lose a lot with translations.

  No.1621

>>1620
In the case of stuff that's originally written in Japanese, those are often translated to other languages by using the English translation rather than the original text, so it's twice as bad.

Really? Wait... Do you speak Russian?

No, I'm just guessing from my experience with Portuguese translations. Maybe Russian translations are better, but I doubt it.

Talking to people on mumble/skype/whichever platform helps if you want to improve your pronouncement. Reading/watching movies/listening to music and whatnot in English helps as well, you can also try the irc.

Is the IRC still actual?

Mumble, too! The server is lainchan.org Not too many people idle there, so if you want to talk to someone on there you'll have to arrange, most likely on here or IRC.

Which is why you speak with a native speaker, as long as you are willing to be corrected a little.

They can correct your English grammar or spelling, tell you a different way to say something, or just help you practice having a more neutral accent. :3
