"have not done yet"

Whoah, long time, no post. Anyway, I've been mulling some structures around trying to review for a placement exam soon, and I'm ironically stuck on coming up with the sentence "I still have not studied for the exam." (though I swear I'm doing that now!) Specifically the "have not done yet" part that...

~ないで Question

I'm reviewing the uses of the plain negative form of verbs + で and one sentence just caught my eye. We're to fill in the blank with some sort of appropriate 〜ないで idea, in this case to say, "Without having done ___" This is the exact sentence, simple enough for a review: 「______________、日本語が上手になった人に会...

Japanese SAT II

There was a topic about this two years ago with no notice... I'm planning on taking several SAT II tests, including the Japanese test in November (only offered with the additional listening section). I am a junior in high school, but I am currently finishing up the fourth level of Japanese taught at...

RE: Tracklist translation, please!

The person I got the tracklist from didn't know, but I've looked around online (googled the album name) and I'm pretty sure it's some group called te'.

Tracklist translation, please!

Need a bit help translating this tracklist for someone. I've tried a bit on my own, but my dictionary and kanji dictionary aren't the best, and looking up every different pronunciation that I find from the kanji dict. in the regular dict. isn't getting me anywhere. All I've figured out is that #3 ha...

RE: Any other languages?

Studied French on my own, took level 2 last year in high school, did a course at the university here, and now I go to a weekly French conversation group at a coffee shop. I'm not so good at speaking it (that's why I'm going to the conversation group), but I can read it very well and am pretty good a...

RE: Bizarre katakana word of the day

We had to do Rosetta Stone work at school a while ago, and one of the sentences was something like "ゴルバチョフは座っています。" Took me a while to realize it was Gorbachev, and that I had to click on the little picture of the old white guy. They made it tricky though, because the picture they had didn't show hi...

RE: Teen japan fans

Thanks to the few who think Japan = happy happy anime fun time, I'm branded as- and have been directly called- a "freaky anime kid" because I take Japanese in school (even when I don't like the stuff). Where I live, the problem isn't that tons of people study Japan only through anime/manga, it's tha...

RE: and now a morbid question..

I'd either like a calm, peaceful death during my sleep after living a long life... or I'd like to die in bizarre circumstancees, like on a spaceship or something exciting like that. Not like a car crash, those are far too common for my tastes. :p
