RE: Nervous about College Japanese courses

I know the question wasn't very straightforward and difficult to answer so thanks for all the advice. Mostly I was just looking for people with personal experience at college level Japanese classes, and yes I know it varies but I would have liked to see what people say and compare it to my own exper...

Nervous about College Japanese courses

I recently transfered from a tiny community college to a huge 4-year university. There were barely any classes at the community college and I'm excited to finally be able to learn Japanese in college. The problem is that the only class with any seats left was Japanese 203. It is suppose to be a thir...

RE: Hostility towards learning?

I know a little bit about the hostility you are talking about. While people aren't nearly as harsh about it where I live, I find it is common for people to look down on things they don't understand. Dont let them bother you. If they are being ignorant jerks like some of the people bellow just talk t...

RE: what do i say when

Just to clarify, in English people usually say, "I'm going out to eat" with out adding "and then I will come back" since it is clearly implied. In Japanese it is the opposite, the emphasis is that they will be returning while the going out is taken as understood. From my understanding the sentence "...

RE: Naruto ep 170, it's all over

Yeah, I noticed the animation had been getting worse. I wasn't sure why until now though and I would definetly agree with you that the animation isn't anywhere as nice as before. Also I was glad to see they were finishing up with the fillers, I was starting to lose interest until these last episodes...

RE: MMORPGs

Played EQ1 for 3 years, tried EQ2 but moved to WoW. I am a mmorpg geek. I would try playing it in Japanese but I am afraid it would hurt me (in the game) more then it would help my japanese.

RE: Careers

Jet program is a good way into a career in Japan, all it requires is you be under 35 (i beleive) have not lived in Japan for 3 consecutive years within the past 10 years, or something close to that anyways. It is difficult to get into I hear, but there are many programs similar to it, like Geos.

RE: Answearing by "because"...

I was wondering if you could use "tame ni" to answer a question like this. So when they ask "nande nihon e kimasu ka" could you reply;
日本語をべんきょうするために日本へきます

RE: Social differences?

I agree with Mandolin's opinion as that could very easily be the case but want to add some other possibilities of what he may of meant by saying "you might be dissapointed in him". I went to Japan earlier this year and stayed with a host family. Before I went I didn't have much of an interest in Jap...

RE: What to learn when?

I really appreciate the advice you two. I am going Japanese book shopping tomorrow and will keep both of your recommendations in mind. When it comes to learning I am exactly the same, I need some kind of course or direction to follow, hope fully some books will enable me to do that. Thanks for the h...

Konnichiwa minasan I have been studying Japanese using Internet resources (mostly this site) and was looking for some kind of help on which direction I should be going. I know hiragana/katakana and about half of the kanji of level 4 for the JPLT. Was wondering if anyone could give me advice on what ...
