Reading comprehension is hard for you guys.

 

It's supposed to be about a map of Pearl Harbor that is with the IJN in Japan.

Yah, once I read the rest of the description. It's in accordance with the japanese battle plans.

Final planning for that took place at what is now MCAS Iwakuni, just a short hop SW of where I live in Hiroshima. It was an IJN naval air station at the time and convenient for planning due to its proximity to Kure. I have a picture of the big wigs (including Yamamoto himself) just after their November 8th (a month prior to the attack) meeting sitting just outside the entrance to the "Whitehouse" (HQ building, still located on the current base).

I walked through those doors many times almost 4 decades ago not knowing who had been there.

I am German yet even as a non-native English speaker I understand what WG tried to say. Their translator just messed up in a funny way :-)

How is YOUR "reading comprehension" in the foreign languages you speak, if any?

Hi freggo,

THANK YOU FOR ASKING!! :o)

no foreign languages spoken here, just English. people tell me i am an inveterate mumbler, and i find myself repeating constantly, with no indication that people understand what it is that i tried to put out there.

that said, my speaking is worlds better than my hearing, which is dyslexic at best.

And that is FAR better than my reading!! it's been claimed by people that know me well that my reading comprehension isn't just slow, it just isn't.

Fortunately, most communication between humans takes place without verbal or written language being involved, and i excel at body english!!

and that works in all languages... particularly full contact.

I don't know if it is just me, but I have noticed a decrease in the quality of clear writing these days, particularly in what little I read from the press. And word pronunciation seems to have slipped also,  unless I am so old my native language has left me behind.

The caption could have been better written, "Japan 1941, map of the US Naval Base Pearl Harbor".

But I am by no means an expert, in anything. (except in my own mind.)
