Thanks Kevin I edited that in. Anyone know if ashita and ima are placed correctly in 5 and 10?
あした is. いま should go in the front of the sentence. If only I had looked before writing this, You probably have it placed correctly.

Sorry to only answer one question... キャンプ「きゃんぷ」を しましょう。 In case you don't know Katakana, Write キャンプ in Romaji. -Edit- I'll note as well, There is probably a way to touch more on the idea of going off to camp.......

下さい vs ください?

I ran a search for 下さい and ください on the Forums but came up with nothing relative to my question.

My Question is:

Is 下さい still used or is ください used more often? If I am a Japanese student, should I be typing and Writing Kanji for Kudasai or leave it to kana?

Thank you =]

RE: Boring Workbook Exercise

I think it would be easy to word a sentence but I'm not sure of the circumstances...

Is The Man on the First story of the Bank? Or is there A bank in the first story of a large building (Like a Mall...)?

RE: Learning Kanji (Day1)

Purely from my own experience (and, I'm certainly not the most experienced, by a long shot), I have been learning Kanji by both memorizing The On and Kun Yomi (Chinese and Japanese Readings, Respectively) while also learning words they are used in. This way you can both learn new words, and be more ...

RE: コップ - why the ツ?

a small つ 「Katakana: ッ」 indicates that the following consonant be doubled. The same goes for Hirigana.

Computer Games?

I'm not sure if This is the right place for this but Does anyone Play Star Wars Galaxies On American Servers? It would be really Grewat if you are or know a Japanese Person that does. Once again, sorry if this is not the area for such a post.

A little Sentence structure help?

I was wondering, when forming a sentence should Adjectives and nouns come before or after Verbs? Were I to say "Go eat a fish head" (which i commonly do :p) would i say sakana atama ikimasu tabemasu! or ikimasu tabemasu sakana atama! ? Also a random bit: Is atama the "on the street" word for "You" f...
