    3 Graduations in June..? They are there to help people cross the street. 9-11, 3-5, 7...hours they are there? It’s quite hard to understand native speakers conversation😭

    @Tom - 全然[ぜんぜん] 分[わ]からないんじゃないけど、「 私[わたし]の 日本語[にほんご]は 上手[じょうず]じゃないんです」と 言[い]いたなかったんです。😓 -It’s not that you don’t understand at all, it’s just I wanted to say, “My Japanese is bad, that’s all.” 😓

    @Niko -はい。 今日[きょう]は 卒業式[そつぎょうしき]んじゃない? -Yes. I’m guessing today is the day of graduation ceremonies? - 数[かず]は9、11、3、5、7 でした。 数[かず]は 卒業式[そつぎょうしき]の 時[とき]でした。 -The numbers were 9, 11, 3, 5, 7. The numbers were the (start) times of the graduation ceremonies.

    @Kazy -はい。3度なんですけど、 -Yes, 3 times (or graduations), but... -どして、警察[けいさつ]は「6月」と 言[い]うの 時[とき]は 分からない。 -I don’t know why the police officer said, “June,” when he said it. (because we’re currently in May, not June. I’m guessing he misspoke?) -Yes, they’re there to help people to cross the street. -Don’t worry. There was so much noise in the background. I had a hard time hearing the audio, too.

    @a a nahh, I said it because I thought so. I didn’t mean you thought my English was really bad. I can teach you Japanese!! Some people left some tips about the conversation here, and now i could hear and understand some of it. Policemen here and there came to protect graduates from any accidents, I mean, to make sure to let them cross the street safely.

    @CHiHARu.Uninstalled Thanks for commenting! I just do these for fun, even for myself. Sometimes I realize that I don’t understand why us English speakers speak the way we do. I like seeing from different perspectives.

    @Niko Thank you for the corrections! 😌 今日! My mind wants to think 今[いま] because the officers were probably weren’t there all day.

    @Tom Correct! I’m still trying learn Japanese by myself, but want to see how (bad) my Japanese is so far in my studies. I’ll let you know if I’m confident enough. Thank you!😌

    @Reiko You’re welcome! 😌 I record all the audio on my iPhone, which doesn’t have a good microphone. And these recordings aren’t planned; I really was curious about why there were so many police officers. They had officers and cars on every block for three blocks in a row! I’m still experimenting on HelloTalk, so I might make changes to what I’m going to do.
