It's a famous book, written by Lynn Truss, on the subject of punctuation.

Yes, it took me a second reading before I understood what you meant.
The two 'and's are a bit awkward, but if you leave the first one out, you'd be left with 3 portions again, wouldn't you?
Yes. I can't recall the full details, but there seems to have been a reason why "Bob, Dave and Susan" would have been a problem with the document.

If punctuation was useless, then why does it excist?

And it is posible to learn a decent amount of english from games and tv. I did.
It would not be perfect english, but it helps a great deal in class.
My pronounciation however is not from games, seeing as those are mostly textbased in my case.
I'm just fairly good at pronouncing it because i've been doing it since i was about 7 or 8. I'm 23 now.

Anyway, as far as kanji goes, I have no idea how easy or hard it wil be. I'm not learning that yet. I'd like to 'master' the kana first.
Besides, it will come up in class soon enough. Really looking forward to it though.
