I learned Hiragana and Katakana, i just don't know how to TYPE it in.
I may be normal but I don\'t think so.
I\'ve been studying Japanese for 4 years, but forgot 2 years of it!! aghhh stupid spanish class sucked all of my japanese memory out...
Oh well. Expect me to correct people on thier grammar etc.

It's already afternoon over here so... こんにちは!

Well, you can say 私はお寿司を愛します!(わたしは おすしを あいします!), but I think it would sound awkward. I think saying 私はお寿司が大好きです!(わたしは おすしが だいすき です!)(" I really like sushi!" ) would be better.

Don't attach 〜さん to your own name as that's considered improper. Anyway, はじめまして!

You have to download the part for internet explorer. Just go to update.microsoft.com and go to updates for your computer and select the japanese language pack.

Doumo arigatou gozaimasu. I will study what you wrote and try to understand it.
This is only my third day leaning Japanese :)

Thanks for the tip about using 〜さん at the end. Is there a better
way to sign "mr fusion"?

どういたしまして!

Maybe leaving it as Mr. Fusion would be OK. Or, you can use katakana, as in: ミスターフュション, so as not to have to attach 〜さん to your name.

There's a specialized kana combination in that transliteration (フュ). It's meant to sound like "fyu".

Another question...

(I can't write in hiragana at this terminal, but I can ask anyway)

you wrote sushi as osushiwo, (four characters instead of 2)

Is there a reason why the longer one is more correct? I found the
two character spelling on the hiragana page for "su". Just curious.

doumo!
