comment Difference between ともあれ and とかく
@istrasci: No, just the difference between ともあれ and とかく. The other two are there just because they were a part of the excercise.

comment Difference between (遊び)方 and (遊ぶ)方法
@Billy My point was that "your method of sitting is not proper" is clumsy (just like you said). It is also clumsy in Japanese. Just like Flaw is saying in his answer: 方法 is methodical "way of doing". You dont need a method to sit in the chair, there is no instructions list that you need to follow. But you can sit on the chair with your legs crossed or at an angle and that would be a non-methodical "way of doing"

comment Difference between (遊び)方 and (遊ぶ)方法
@Billy for example you can say 座り方(すわりかた)which translates to "way of sitting". You can say 座り方が悪い(すわりかたがわるい) which would mean "not sitting properly". You can't use 方法 in this context. Its roughly saying "your method of sitting is not proper" in English.

comment What is the difference between とはいえ and と(は)いっても?
This could have been a duplicate. And I'm using the same book, but there is no answer why in my example sentence といっても can't be used.

comment What is the difference between とはいえ and と(は)いっても?
This is what I read in one of my reference books, however the teacher was categorically against it. And she was completely certain that only とはいえ can be used here.

comment Polite speech and うち よそ
@TsuyoshiIto indeed, i took it from my textbook. I also asked one of my teachers and she confirmed that this terminology is not common and only used at this specific school

comment Polite speech and うち よそ
@Chocolate: I dont think it is a grammatical term and this is the reason i am asking the question. As i have mentioned, i looked it up myself before asking. ZhenLin: No, it is よそ - again, i did some research before asking. To the anonymous downvoter: I am all for feedback. Could be nice to know why is the downvote.

I was looking for a more formal description, so I am not sure that native speakers can be of great help here. Weblio is nice, but I could not find what I was looking for.
