How to reply?

Post by Kisshu » Mon 12.19.2005 3:05 pm

Hey! I hath an extremely difficult question for you.. ok.. maybe not.. but here goes!

What does this mean?

日本語はどう?私は難しいと思う...

Does the first part mean "How is your Japanese language going?" Or did I tranlate that wrong? I couldn't figure out the second part -___-

Also... what would be a good way to reply to this?;)

I think of 日本語はどう? as meaning "How are you finding Japanese?" which is sligtly different to your translation. Also, check the grammar section of this site under と思います -"I think," as this will help you understand the second part of the sentence.

Ongakka is correct:

"How are you finding Japanese? I think it's difficult."
