My 日本は長いですか Moment

Has anyone received their 日本は長いですか yet?
It happened to me twice today :blush:
Inside I was trying not to laugh while I recalled this video…

I once wrote a grammatical incorrect post on HelloTalk about how I was learning Japanese, and somebody replied with “日本語上手!”
And in that moment, I knew, that people weren’t joking when they say that Japanese people will always tell you 日本語上手, even when your Japanese is trash. :laughing:

At first I translated 「日本は長いですか」 as “Is Japan long?” which seemed weird.
But it seems, in this context it means “Have you been in Japan for long?”

I’ve gotten 日本に住んでますか on iTalki which I guess would be below 日本は長いですか and above 日本語上手. It is however still shit :upside_down_face:

I get 日本に慣れていますか (are you used to Japan) every once in a while which I’m not sure is a good thing seeing as I’ve been here a year now? Am I doing something wrong that people feel the need to comment on? But eh I’ll take it over 日本語上手. No 日本は長いですか quite yet though.
