Yo, Ty here.
After a long discussion, we have decided to sunset FMJ for the time being, but if we find a way to make it viable, we’re open to bringing it back.
We apologize to those who look forward to weekly prompts and corrections. If you are a paid sub and subbed recently, feel free to reach out to NativShark support for a refund/partial refund if you’d like do so.

Last week’s corrections
You notice that your toilet is leaking. You call your landlord and they ask where exactly the water is coming from.
Phone calls are hard.
Phone calls about problems that you need to specifically explain are harder.
That said, they are quite important to be able to make when you live here, and since I’m actively dealing with a situation like this, I figured it would make a good prompt as well.
Here’s what I said when I was asked:
なんか、 べんき と ゆか の あいだ から もれてます。
It's uhh, kind of leaking from between the floor and the toilet itself.
Of course, this wasn’t the first thing I said but I did manage to say it after the person on the call helped me with some vocab haha.
I didn’t know 便器(べんき)[toilet bowl] which is like the porcelain part of the toilet. Great term.
Let’s get into the corrections:
