Hi, I'm impressed this site is growing very nicely! Especially, the YouTube video :-)

Sorry, I don't want to be nitpicky, but I found a small typo in the Lessons >> Grammar >> Keigo page:
おっしゃたとおり

With a small っ:
    おっしゃたとおり

And this may be a little controversial:
あ した、 いらっしゃいますか?
Will you come / go tomorrow?

And I'd suggest another different translation depending on the situation:
    Will you (still) be here/there tomorrow?

Thanks!

With a small っ:

おっしゃったとおり


Will update accordingly.

And this may be a little controversial:

あ した、 いらっしゃいますか?
Will you come / go tomorrow?

Will you (still) be here/there tomorrow?


I see your point. Unless there is a good reason, I'll leave out '(still)' since that is implied if the context calls for a 'here.'

Thank you so much for the corrections! Of course please let me know if you spot anything even slightly strange. Many of these pages were written years ago and I am certainly no translator.
