"How do people who speak Asian languages such as Chinese or Japanese explain how to spell words?"

As a native Chinese speaker, what we usually do is spell out the word in pieces. So each character can be broken down into smaller pieces which we have a name for. So we say like the top portion is X and the left side is Y. Or “it’s just like X, but with Y added on the top and 3 dots on the left.

Aside from kanji, the the japanese written language (hiragana & katakana) is phonetic just like the western alphabet. In fact, it’s even more phonetic then English, considering that many English words aren’t pronounced via their letters, but historical roots of the word.

/u/refllect + /u/mcmeaty

I don’t believe this is Japan, very obviously so to me (I think), but this reminds me of it. And now I miss Japan.

Only in a Japanese school do you see lovely posters such as these to remind you to eat properly because if you don’t, your poo is just not gonna come out right.  This wonderful poster was outside the nurse’s office for an entire month and educated the girls about proper poo form and how to promote proper poo production.  Pure awesomeness.
