I know, pretty far fetched that anyone here speaks Japanese, I hardly know it myself, but, here goes...


Ohayoo. Anata wa Mr. Snaffleburger ga suki desu ka?

I only know one phrase in Japanese: Supa no doku desu ka? (Where is the supermarket?) I also know that 'Kinoko-atama' means 'mushroom-head'. There are various words I've picked up from watching Japanese films and playing their games, but I've never had the time to learn anything to string them together. I can ask where the supermarket is, but I wouldn't understand the response!

It's ok, I'm very patient. I'm sure eventually someone will come around who knows Japanese...

In the meantime, a Japanese drinking game! Hooray!

I've been working on learning the hiragana syllabary this past week. I know very little Japanese - just the little things I've picked up from anime - so I thought I'd try to learn it for real.

Ooh, cool! Where are you at in learning them?

Well, I just bought a book when I was in Japantown in San Francisco about reading manga. The first chapter is all reading/writing hiragana, so I'm just kind of making flashcards and practicing through memorization. I've got most of them mastered, but for some reason I can never remember a few of them, no matter how many times I go through it...

What really helps is doing mnemonics, where you come up with a picture of what the character is supposed to represent that helps you remember what it is. For example, if you knew that the Japanese word for eye was me, you might say that the character me looked like an eye.

Behold the glory that is:

The Japanese Tutorial!

Granted, it hasn't been updated in a million billion years, but if enough people (read:one) want me to, I'll continue.

日本語が大好きだね。

I tend, by the way, to use dictionary forms instead of polite.

Kana please? I don't recognize several of the kanji,and I'm not on my compy to look them up.

As a general rule, people who type in Japanese online tend to use Kanji/Kana, but also include the romaji so people whose computers don't support Japanese can read it too. or when you don't know the kanji happy.gif

And I know how to pronounce sorry, but I just have no clue how to spell it.

Most of this is from watching undubbed anime, so I really don't know that much.

Nya. I'm a neko. Nya nya.

Flashcards. Flashcards and lots of writing them over and over. I'm hoping your class gives you more than just five days to learn them all, but that's how I accomplished it.
