English isn't easy as it is evolved from several languages including Latin, Greek, old French, German, Indian. Several words have the same sound but different spellings and different meanings.

The most important difference between English and other languages is it isn't tonal and each word is divided into syllables. It is the accurate and clear sounding of each syllable that is particularly important in spoken English rather than the sound of the word the syllables produce when joined together.
This requirement means English is spoken of necessity, more slowly than many other languages and often even more slowly when communicating something important or emphasising something.

Although the language isn't tonal in principle, slight changes of tone when speaking are normal in order to modify what is being said in order to communicate humour, irony, sarcasm, seriousness and so forth and in the matter of personal speech facial expression can, in addition, be an important factor.
Spoken English in person often includes a literal misdirection where what is said is deliberately understated or overstated and the listener should recognise these devices by also recognising the tone changes, emphasis changes and alteration of the facial expression.

Colloquialisms are often included in such speech. Reading novels is one good method of building a store of such devices.

You won't do better initially than investing in a good dictionary - The Oxford English Dictionary is best for British English and Webster's for American English. Once you have learned the correct pronunciation of the syllables these books will provide much information about the meanings of words and how they are pronounced.

Watching films and television from the English-speaking world, especially the older films and making notes of what isn't understood and these will be found to be invaluable in the use of the language, an appropriate tone of voice and facial expression...
English speaking radio is almost equally important and a wide variety of audio and tv is available on the BBC website and the podcasts from CBC are particularly good.

Practicing by reciting into a recording machine and then listening to the result is almost as essential as practicing in person with any good English speaker where you are.

One thing of particular importance is the matter of grammar. When you know what you want to say in your first language the temptation is to translate it into English and then speak but unfortunately a direct translation usually makes little sense. It is important to try and think in English in order to be better understood.

I hope this helps...
Good luck!

That model only comes in Japanese and is for the Japanese home market only.

Sorry about the delay but it took some checking. This model only comes pre-installed with a language within the firmware, it does not give a language selection. Can I ask where you purchased it from? Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question


Electronics Technician: Richard
ok that explains it, it is pre made with this language and has no other languages stored within it it as its not meant for sale outside of Japan. There is also no firmware developed for it in any other languages due to this reason. I am sorry but it has not English language available or installed so cannot be changed. Your only option is to replace the unit. I am sorry about this and I asked you please do not shoot the messenger, and if you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.Thank you

It's strange if the plug doesn't fit the cigarette lighter socket. They can be a tight fit so if you find it a little big for the socket try putting pressure on it to push it in. If it absolutely won't fit you can buy cigarette lighter plugs in car accessory shops. If you can get one that does fit you can cut the one that's on the lead off and fit the new one.

If you cannot get any plug to fit you can get the lead wired permanently into the car. Any garage would be able to do it for you.

Use a smartphone with the Google Translate app on it and use the camera feature / Scan, to translate what you are seeing on screen. Look for Settings - Setup - Language

I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted. Don't skip the hard reset step (or the backup step!)

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Yeah! This is possible. If you do not understand the Japanese language and using Gps then it is very hard to drive for you. Here are some simple steps for change Language.

Step 1:
Turn off your car and turn it on looking for a button that says "English." Some cars will have an option to change the language as soon as the car is turned on.
Step 2:
Look for a button around the touch screen marked "Language" or "LANG." Press this button and then press the button for "English" on the touch screen.
Step 3:
Check to see if your navigation system is a GPS system or a DVD system. If the system is a DVD system, you may have to call the company and purchase an English language disc. These can cost upwards of $150.
Step 4:
Take your car into a dealership that services your model of car. Many times they will be able to reprogram the computer for free, though some systems require more work and may be costly to change.
If you want to update your downloaded Gps Device then you should feel free to browse our website or click on the Given link below and reach your destination very easily hassle free.
