Re: Hoping I got this (simple?) translation correct

I think both translations sound fine. I actually had a minor brain meltdown regarding も. I first learned it as meaning "also", but then I learned it as meaning "even", and then I read somewhere that it's actually an "emphasizer" particle and doesn't really mean "also" or "even" but comes across that...

Re: When do you use Kanji?

I often end up trying to figure out how something is read by remembering another compound that uses the same kanji. Only problem is that I sometimes get them mixed up and use the 1st kanji's reading for the 2nd or vice-versa.

Re: Would this make learning kanji a little easier?

Actually, I find that quite a lot of words, not few of them, do have a nice 1:1 correspondence to English, with no context necessary. Book, calendar, computer, paper, CD, encyclopedia, etc., etc. -- there are not words that need context to be understood. They need context for you to know how to use...

Re: All Japanese All The Time

Homework: I don't like homework. I never did in high school or college, and I still don't. I think the Nakama workbook exercises are useful, but they make you do too many of them. After the second question (in a typical set of five) you have "learned" the rule they want you to learn. Sometimes they...

Re: Simple grammar question

I think せんせいはだれですか sounds correct.

As for the difference, think of it as the difference between "Who is the teacher?" and "WHO is the teacher?!" with emphasis and a tone of disbelief on the "who" in the second question.

Re: What dose atta mean?

From what I remember, the Japanese call the Statue of Liberty 自由の女神. It seems to me that the word 神 in Japanese is rather more dilute than the English word God.
