    I apologize in advance for resurrecting this thread. My japanese improved a bit since last year and I was hoping to get some penpals from RJ to help me a little more. I already have a few exchange friends I see and speak to on a regular but I can always use more

    Maybe a dozen words, or so... but haven't had to use it in about 5 years. I know more sign language than Japanese.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidDang, Japanese and Italian. You are ambitious, tmac.

    I speak ah ingrish and spangrish, sawree!


    I gotta be. I respect the natives of other countries coming into the US and picking up english as their second language. My buddy in the dojo knows 7 icon_biggrin.gif


    Kawaiidesu: First step is the basic hiragana and katakana and then from there get a few kanji dictionaries and build vocabulary. Also i recommend a book about verbs

    oyogu(dictionary)
    oyoganai(neg)
    oyogimasu(polite)
    oyogeba(conditional aka if i swim)
    oyoge(like a demand)

    and then there's te form and many more but if you learn how to conjugate life becomes soooooooo much easier

    i'm still learning my kanji but it sounds like it has to do with high school. so maybe you learned in high school. and i guess you still know to make that so thats pretty cool =D

    子供頃、ずっと私は日本文化に興味がありました。日本語を学んだ事はとても楽しかったので、卒業した後も勉強を続けて、もっと上手くなりたいです。
