皆さん、こんにちは!

 私はピーターです。よろしくおねがいします。

 日本語にきょうみがあるし、このサイトがとてもあいそうがよさそうな社会だし、ここに日本語を勉強しに来ました。

I've actually been here for a while, and made a few posts, but I kept putting off making a proper introductory post and I finally got around to doing it. :)

I'm from the UK, and have been interested in the Japanese language and culture for a while, with my short-term goal being to take an AS Level examination in it, hopefully passing with a decent grade. :D

Sorry for the somewhat inconsistent use of kanji in my Japanese, I try to avoid using any Kanji on a computer I don't know/couldn't write by hand. Any corrections are, of course, greatly appreciated. (Why else would I be here? :P)

Welcome ピーターさん! :) I know I've seen you posting in the past, so I was a bit surprised to see your intro post... I guess I didn't notice that you hadn't made one yet... you already feel like a regular to me! :mrgreen:

Thanks :) , I've been intending to make one for a while, but kept forgetting or putting it off. :P

I've heard of A-Levels but what is an AS-Level?

An AS Level is just the first half of an A Level basically, so if I do well enough on that I'd want to take the second half, the A2, next year. :)

And thanks for the welcome. :D

Thank you for your kind welcome. :)

Also, this probably isn't the best place to ask, but it hardly justifies a new thread, but does anyone know why IME doesn't seem to work sometimes? On certain programs, (and recently on my browser, which is troublesome), I haven't been able to get the buttons which let me choose to convert into hiragana or katakana, so I can only type in romaji. :?
It still works in notepad for some reason, so if I want to write anything in Japanese script I have to write it there and then copy + paste it into my browser. :(

Thanks for any help, and once again for your kind welcomes.

My IME is like that too. I assume it's just temperamental, but if anyone has a real reason why this happens and better still, a solution, I'd be happy to hear it :lol:
