RE: wat is ur favorite japanese word?

Lol, this is not my favorite word, but it's the most used in my envronment (because that's practically the only word everyone seems to know in Japanese around here :P. I really dont use it that often...the english version, spoken in a low, sharp voice somehow appeals more to me...) Baka.... I know, ...

RE: Why You Want To Learn Japanese

Well...whether I speak African or not is yet to be seen. African might look and sound like dutch a lot...but its really quite different. I'd probebly be able to make myself understood, but understanding others I'm not sure. Anyhow, I do love Japanese culture. It's quite unique and has a feel to it t...

RE: Why You Want To Learn Japanese

Never been there, but Japan is just great from what I've seen and heard and read and all. Besides, learning a new language can be fun, and it gives you the feeling you've accomplished something which is seen as difficult (but it's not as difficult as they all think), and you can actually talk to peo...

RE: clothing

Great site. Loved it :P. Anyway, I think Japanese people usually wear western clothing. Suits indeed seem to be 'casual' clothing almost. I like the traditional clothing because it looks absolutely great. I will admit that comfort wasn't considered when it was designed, but it looks great nonetheless!

RE: Learning from anime etc...

I must say that up until now, anime's been a good motivator for learnging Japanese. You couldn't understand a tenth of the whole episode even if you did have good knowledge of vocabulary, but that's not the point. You can pick out whole sentences and stuff, as anime uses sentences that are commonly ...

RE: -chan ?

Getting back to the point :P. I'm no expert on Japanese...hell I'm not even a Novice :P, but from my many months (-_-') of experience watching anime and reading mange, it would seem that chan is indeed some sort of 'cute' name for someone. young children are cute (by definition, although I think it ...

RE: Konnichi wa!

Well, konnichi wa DataDog (and other people here, of course). I'm totally new (registered about 30 mins ago), and I thought it quite rediculous to begin a new topic about me (would seem a little bit too arrogant as well, wouldn't it?). I've been trying to learn Japanese for over a year now, but, as ...
