Probably as much as "fluent".

Geeze, I just didn't want to appear like I was just beginning or anything. I'm nowhere near fluent, and I know that VERY well. One phrase and suddenly I'm the devil.

Janai... I really need help with negatives.

Okay, I'm having some problems with negatives. To my knowledge, a verb ending in "i" can be changed to drop the 'i' and use 'inai'. For example... suki -> sukinai ittai -> ittainai Am I right with those? I am also having trouble with basic negative sentences. Watashi wa suru janai desu ne Would that...

RE: Xiao Xiao

If I remember right, Xiao Xiao is Chinese. I had a Chinese freind a few years ago, and he explained to me the use of X in the language. If it were Japanese, it would have been shiao shiao (Or something, thats close enough). Theres my boring lecture, haha. But if you weren't saying it was related to ...

My doctor has always been odd. What confuses me more that my grandmother accepted it. Sounds dangerous to me.

RE: I'm going to japan! and.. I need help... o_0

If you are good at computers, you could always do that. I'm 16 and I work with Macromedia Flash for a newspaper part time. I'm about to get $75 for making a volume control panel. Also, just save up your money as much as you can. I've found that you get a lot more money than you think. Just avoid buy...

RE: Sick, but not sure what is wrong with me. Any help?

Well, I took your advice and went to the school nurse today. I think she was just plain dumb. All she did was call to get me a ride home, which I never implied that I wanted. I asked her what she thought was wrong with me, and got a very monotone "Iunno". Then she gave me a pass to leave. I did, see...

RE: Foreign Exchange Student Questions

I am also on the road to a foreign exchange student program. I think that all you really need to worry about before you get there is the school uniform. You have to send them your sizes, I think. But with the gestures and such, I'm sure you could find some on websites like this.

Is it true that the Japanese don't really like foreigners?

I've heard this so many times, I was just wondering if it was true. There must be alot of gaijin in Japan these days, so maybe that dislike was something of the past? Just wondering, thanks.

RE: Sick, but not sure what is wrong with me. Any help?

My dad is pretty stubborn when it comes to medical issues. He thinks I have just not been eating. I know however, that I have been eating normally, in the way that I always do. I've broken my arm twice, and each time he thought it was a bruise. I had appendicitis, and he thought it was something I a...

RE: Sick, but not sure what is wrong with me. Any help?

Hey, it's on the off-topic board and I was already here anyway. But nobody will let me go to the doctor (And I for sure can't pay for the visit on my own), so I've just been sitting it out.

I feel extremely weak, and I have aches all over, every one of my limbs is trembling and I have a constant, unending headache... It's getting so bad that I can't take it anymore. I've been ...

Questions about foreign exchange student programs...

I was just wondering how they decide who gets in and who doesn't. I've checked many different programs, and for the bulk of them you must send i n a photo album and letter to the host family. Also, are they real picky on grades? I study/do homework for 2 hours a night every night, and then study Jap...
