comment Why is 〜に受かる used to mean “to pass”?
@firtree: I'm not sure I follow, with に, whatever comes before is always the exam, or what is being passed or failed. With が it establishes who is doing the passing or failing. Is this what you are referring to? Also, I'm not sure how "the examiner" plays a role though. Could you provide an example?

comment Why is 〜に受かる used to mean “to pass”?
@Tony: It's に落ちる because you need to attain a certain level to pass the test, in other words you fall below that level.

@Tony: 受かる was used to mean radio waves being received by an antenna, etc. (intransitive version of receive) (similar to "pick up radio waves" in English) Googling brings up some hits.

comment How long would it take on average to learn Japanese
Reading text in video games is actually quite high level if the game does not allow you to pause to read the text. I would say it probably would take a few years.

comment What does ホイっと mean?
@Mumei: Where are you getting the think part from? I would translate it as Yeah, like it's that easy to find one (a boyfriend) (in a sarcastic manner). The っと is the same phenomenon as from にこにこと笑う to にこっと笑う which I believe happens in conversation (I don't know the exact details though).

comment What does ホイっと mean?
@Mumei: It means doing something easily rather than thinking, also it implies "carelessly" and "thoughtlessly" (look up the definition for 軽々しい).

comment Is there a specific time to pronounce 日本, にほん/にっぽん?
日本 was read にっぽん but was 'overused' during WWII to suggest patriotism toward the country Do you have any reference material to back this up? This is the first time I've heard this and cannot find any reference material that says this.

comment When speaking with client, how to say “I will tell my coworker”
(1) The お伝えする is intended to show respect towards who you are giving the message to, since you are passing the message to a coworker it would be awkward since the customer should be given more respect than your coworker. (2) You would still use 申し伝える when talking to a customer, and if you are talking to a coworker, you can simply use 伝える.
