What will a Child learn sooner than a song?
What better teach a Foreigner the tongue?
I currently teach British Literature and AP Literature and Composition in Houston, Texas. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find the time to translate much lately, but I will update this blog with translations of Japanese lyrics and poetry as often as I can. This is as much a learning tool for me as it is a resource for those of you looking for English adaptations of Japanese songs and poems. I have found that many online translations sound stiff and awkward, so my goal is to adapt Japanese lyrics so that they sound natural in English. Unfortunately, I don’t always succeed, and I ask that you comment if you find any errors. I hope to someday post translations of short stories, as well.
