RE: I can't remember.....Dx

I havn't learned much Japanese on my own yet (I might be able to take a course this fall, so I'm trying not to dive in head first). At work or something, when you're doing a task, say it in english, then in Japanese. Not sure if you're right? Write it down and look it up when you get home. It's work...

How do these books stack up?

I just got these books as a gift today. I was wondering if they are good books, on a beginner - actually wanting to speak the launguage - kinda books.

Japanese for Dummies
A guide to Learing Hiragana and Katakana
And the E-J, J-E dictionary I got was : Random House's Dictionary.

RE: Some translation. (Heh, just noticed the wrong forum...)

Alright, I think I've got this translation down. (I've only been studying japanese for about 3 weeks, so I don't know many words.)

Please come in! Do not use the restrooms here. (And... I can't get the rest. I'm thinking irregular verb, and can't find the root.)

Some translation. (Heh, just noticed the wrong forum...)

Alright, I was surfing the Mother 3 forums, and I came across this in some guy's post. I'm wondering what is the correct way to write this in romaji. 「はいってます!ってトイレじゃないか、ここは。ジョ ークだよォ」 Those small っ's throw me off, and I havn't seen it yet in my studies, except to make a pause. I have this (from the e...

RE: Verbs?

Ahh, so French irregular verbs aren't as bad as Japanese? Or... at least the one 'to do'. I mean, 'finissons' is... monstrous untill you get use to it. Are all the su's (sorry, I cannot write in kana yet) replaced with shi's in the verb forms? About the ja nai. The n'est-ce pas really helped, but I ...

RE: My first

I warn you now. I'm taking French in school, and studying Japanese at home (by myself... which can get kinda hard). A lot of the confusion I have is French related. Verbs, sentence forms. Mainly those cought me off gaurd.

Verbs?

Alright, I wrote down the lesson on verb conjunctions, and I noticed one is missing. Just... a normal present tense one, (i.e. watashi wa su(insert conjunction here) desu = I'm doing it) is it still suru? So it literally looks like "I to do it"? The confusion comes from French, since they have 4-6 v...

New, and I have a few questions.

Alright, I'm new to Japanese, only starting it... Friday, I believe. I'm a freshmen in High School, and French is moving too slow for me learn. So, I decided, I'm going to be persuing a career in programing, and Japanese might help me get a job for some huge company over there. So, I'm starting to l...
