Re: Practice Japanese or English in the TJP chat!

Hektor6766さん、 You'll get a lot of hits for the original story of 夜中のおとむらい, however the script in the vid is quite different from the original story. I made a lot of mistakes, the Japanese script here was actually marked and corrected by Takashi san, so it shouldn't have any error. Just in case you s...

Re: Working Holiday: Insurance

Does your company offer this or it's your vacation leave? I think first-aid and medical care are the most important thing you have to prepare before leaving for a trip. For group vacation, my company usually book (and request flight confirmation) to-and-fro ticket, we have our own company insurance ...

Re: Practice Japanese or English in the TJP chat!

LOF, thank you for the invitation. We were inspired by Takashi san, last year with his great help, Txkun and I had completed a listening practice exercise by translating the English-sub of Japanese folktale.

Re: "へと"?

Well… Shirley, do you really want me to butt in? Nilecat san, You're like our father and also a great teacher. It's all been very sudden. What makes you think that I don't like you to get involved teaching me? Due to my long absence here? Or due to the reply I've just posted here ? Am I that unreas...

Chinese has a topic-comment structure, but just because 是 appears after a topic doesn't make it a topic marker. 私はブラジル人です。  = 我是巴西人。 It seems like a sentence like this one blends well with ...
