RE: A thank you to Mr. Cash and everyone

I like how you talk really polite like my county's Queen :D Sorry mate, I need to learn to elaborate more... I realised now the "lol" seemed offensive. I don't hang around here much, or any internet forum, so I have funny ways of expressing myself with internet slang. Sorry again ;) You're cool man,...

RE: A thank you to Mr. Cash and everyone

I know mate... I'm thankful too. I was talking about the reason you started the thread. I thought it was strange this thread began soon after Mike had been getting complaints for his responses. Maybe it could have been a lesson for Mike, or maybe TJP people just want to show their appreciation, or m...

RE: In case you are interested

:D I remember you telling me about that in my last thread, awesome! I'm really happy for you, wish you all the best! Have fun! P.S. I've just had emails telling me my Genki study books have just been sent lol, I'll finally be doing some proper studying rather than learning from a silly 15-minute or ...

RE: Genki Answer Key Necessary?

Ah ok, that doesn't matter, I can order it when it comes in stock.

I am currently studying alone, which is sometimes hard because I have to motivate myself lol. Eventually I will be getting a college course in Japanese, but for now I'm going solo.

Thanks for your replies :)

Genki Answer Key Necessary?

Hi, I have a quick question for anyone that happens to be studying from the Genki textbooks. I've just ordered Genki 1 : An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese and the Genki 1 Workbook from thejapanshop.com, which I'm very pleased with because of the cheap prices and all the happy comments from...

RE: Journalism, Languages.

I'm not going to deny that my English composition skills are terrible, I'm glad you pointed it out. I forgot to mention that before I do this Journalism course, there is an access course for adults that help to get me up to standard (as long as I work hard at it). It's sort of a "back to school" cou...

Journalism, Languages.

I'll try to keep this short and sweet. I wasn't sure whether I should bother writing this here considering most of the learners seem to be younger than me, from what I've seen anyway. But, I wouldn't mind some advice from anyone that's willing to give it, I'm open to anything. After almost 5 years o...
