Hello.

I don't know how to describe this but your "nihon go" is pathetic. :)

Assuming from that post many people can see that even your English is bad.

Well here are my corrections.

"konnishi ha!"

Omg, where did you get the "し" ? And also the "ha" doesn't belong there, it's "wa" though in hiragana it's written "ha"

"watashi ha namae jonnaneko-chan desu"

And again, not "ha" if you write in romaji!
Then it's impolite to add a suffix to your name while introducing yourself.
And then, the whole sentence is wrong. That translated to English would be:
"I name is jonnaneko-chan". Please use の if you know it. So that sentence should be: "わたしのなまえはジョンナネコーちゃんです。"

"watashi ha japano dehaarimasen"

Japano... omg, I want to know where you study your japanese! If you meant with "Japano" a "Japanese" then it's totally wrong. Also, the "ha" is incorrect. "dehaarimasen" is written in hiragana "ではありません" but pronounced "dewa arimasen".

"kimi ha kawaii demo watashi ha kawaii dehaarimasen"

And again the "ha":s. Also, I don't think "君" is the right word to put there. Depends who are you saying it. It can be very rude.

"doozo joroshiku"

Its "よろしく" not "じょろしく"

Also quit with those stupid looking ^____________________^ mega smileys.

Hiragana is one of the three writting systems used in Japanese, the others being Katakana and Kanji. Hiragana and Katakana take about a week or two to learn, and I personally think it's important to learn if you're seriously studying Japanese.

Kimi, generally, is rude. Only use it when around close friends, but not around strangers or someone you just met, you'd give a bad impression. Also, anime isn't the best place to learn Japanese initially; try looking through this site and others first, then try to understand anime.

Jonnaneko, what's your native language? From the substitution of "jo" for "yo" I'm thinking it's possibly German.

Xurma, calm down about は, transcribing it as "ha" is acceptable (that's how it is transcribed in Kunrei-shiki romanization.)

Jonnaneko, don't judge what is appropriate speech by what is used in anime or manga. It would be good to read this thread before you embarass yourself further.

In your signature, you are using both "dake" and "shika", but the two are never used together; "dake" is used in positive sentences, and "shika" in negative sentences. Since you have a negative verb, you'd best drop the "dake."

I think it is; Xurma and jonnaneko-chan are posting from the same IP.

The first post was believable enough (except maybe for "japano"), but the second post's "i can speak good english so i can learn japan" and "kimi is not rude! in anime they use it everywhere" were just too obviously stereotypical.

A few days ago, I pointed out that I picked up a new expression in Japanese by watching a music video that a bunch of us were discussing over email. One of the replies was "I watch this cartoon called Naruto and I'm picking up on all kinds of Japanese, lol."

Sadly, my reaction was "is he making fun of me?" Not that I watch anime, but that I always get the, "oh so you're into anime" reaction when people find out I'm studying Japanese. I haven't verified if he actually watches Naruto...Image

Hey jonnaneko...you picked all that up from watching anime? I think that's actually impressive. I've watched about 200 hours of Japanese movies and TV. I really don't pick up anything from it (the video I was talking about is different...because the expression was in writing).

Well.....in this case it could actually be justified because her username has the "chan" in it, although in that case I would write "なまえはjonnaneko-chanです".

Noticed that too.
And the lack of explanations for things said to be wrong.

I'd like an explanation for the identical IPs before I get really cheesed off about sock-puppet conversations.

It's possible for two different persons to have the same IP address?

Sorry about the off topic. I just had to ask. Trying to learn about these things. :)

Not possible =)
Unless they both have the same ISP in the same area, and the OP took measures to release their IP while xurma was acquiring a new one.
