Err, yeah. I didn't know how to describe this in the title X_x Every year [literally] when you enter Japanese (III for me starting tomorrow) sensei asks us to write about our lives. Like...literally give a biography of ourselves.
I. Introduction (Name, Age, Hobbies, etc)
II. Family (Names, Ages, Jobs, etc)
III. Every day life (Time you get up, school schedule, when you go to bed, etc)
IV. A Random Holiday (explain what you got/gave, mainly Valentines Day, White Day, or Christmas, but can be a birthday)
Anyway! Right now, what I'm sort of having trouble with [because it doesn't...exactly give it in the books] is...
What's the Japanese word closest to a "jack-of-all-trades/handy man"? The best I could come up with was 便利な人 (convenient man). If it happens to be right, then...yay for me! X_x
What's the Japanese word closest to "barge repairman"? Actually, I have no clue if my brother still works there =/ He did last year. I think now he words at Pella [peh-lah] or Jackel [yay-GUHL].
If I'm right, Pella would be ペーラ and Jackel would be イェイーガル, or at least, I think so. Correct me if I'm wrong and help would be appreciated on this matter. Thank you ^_^;;
Also, please don't ask me why Jackel is pronounced like Bagel with a J/Y, because I don't know. X_x and I don't WANT to know.
