Nihonjin no Shiranai Nihongo

To the small minority that may or may not remember me, お久しぶりです >_<
Anyway I totally thought of the forum when I saw this drama, so I wanted to know what everyone thought of this one : 日本人の知らない日本語, which basically means 'The Japanese that the Japanese People Don't Know'.
The plot is about Haruko, a 23-year old fashionable young teacher, who wants to be a high school teacher. Her old teacher promises to look into a place for her into becoming a high school teacher, if she teaches at this school where people from all over the world (Russia, Italy, China, America, England) to learn Japanese. They aren't your average people, however, who begin to learn Japanese. All of them asks difficult questions ranging from polite speech to what the exact name is for items to the history of Japanese mafia to why Chinese kanji and Japanese kanji differ so much, so Haruko has her hands full. Each episode is 30 minutes focusing on a different student with their different backgrounds.
To be honest some of the acting is kinda . . . there's no easy way to say this . . . bad, but it's very interesting especially if you're learning Japanese. And I totally love each and every of Haruko's fashion sense throughout the show. This show makes me want to go to Japan and start shopping.
Has anyone watched this yet? What do you think ^^?

...it's uh, hilarious. But I think part of it is because of the acting. ^^; (Though some of the gaijin have pretty good Japanese.) However I do like learning little tidbits related with Japanese culture, lol. And I agree, Haruko's fashion sense is something I'm fond of in the show.

it sounds both interesting and annoying as hell.
it reminds me of an (old?) tv show that has a similar title (maybe even the same?). Only on the tv show they asked things to tourists and made fun of their incredibly bad Japanese. The 'shiranai nihongo' referred to Japanese so bad that you can't understand it xD

I haven't heard of this drama yet, but from what you've described, it looks really interesting! Especially so since I'm trying to improve my Japanese bit by bit, and I love the union jack tee the character's wearing. 8D
The concept reminds me of an 70s comedy series from the UK, about an English teacher and his students of various nationalities (Russian, Chinese, Indian, Japanese), called Mind Your Language. XDDD
Confusing with nonsensical verbosity>>>>
DF: ad hoc spazz

It's so hilarious and at the same time, informative too~
I've seen a couple of episodes and it's LOL well the acting-- To be honest, I didn't expect anything that much ^^;; But I lol at the storyline of some episodes
@litewolf: Do you mean those wall of text

Yeah, the acting is really . . . some of the people were believable, some of them were like totally over-the-top. Especially the scenes where if Haruko didn't answer their questions because she didn't know the answers, they'd be like "ANSWER ME ANSWER ME" lol until Haruko's like "WAKATTAYO~!"
I was like, if that happened in my Japanese class, I think my teacher would throw us all out LOL.
I would like go to work dressed like Haruko, though! So fun and full of life ^^ When I'm really really free I'll post up my particular favorites. I totally think Minnie Mouse started this trend of wearing big bows on your head.
Ohhhhhhhhh, have any of you watched the episode focusing on otaku stereotypes which took them to a maid cafe? I must say, maid cafes in real life as opposed to maid cafes in fictional life (Kaichou wa Maid-sama) seems so much more awkward, for both the 'maids' as well as the customers (unless you're really really into it, I suppose).
