My introduction in japanese

Postby kawaii_san » Tue 08.07.2007 8:15 pm

I'll write a  little intro in japanese. Please correct what's wrong.

Japanese
こんばんは. 私の名前はTiago です。私はポルトガル人。庶l才です。日本語に大いに気乗りです。それでは日本語が習っている。

Romaji
konbanwa. Watashi no namae wa Tiago desu. watashi wa porutogarujin. juuyonsai desu. Nihongo ni ooini kinori desu. Sore de wa nihongo o oshiette kudasai.

PRETENDED translation
Good evening. My name is Tiago. I am portuguese and I am 14 years old. I am very interested in the japanese language. So I am learning japanese.

Your moji doesn't agree with your romaji in the last sentence - the first one says "nihongo ga naratte iru" "learning Japanese" (though you have the wrong particle, it should be "wo", not "ga"); the second says "nihongo o oshiette kudasai" - "please teach me Japanese" (but the -te form of oshieru is oshiete, not oshiette)

You don't need the の名前 in the first sentence, nor the 私は in the second. Replace the 。 after ポルトガル人 with で、 to combine your nationality and age into one sentence, like your English version. 大いに気乗り is unusual, I think, I'd say 日本語に興味(きょうみ)が深い(ふかい)です instead. For your last sentence, だから、日本語を勉強(べんきょう)しています is better and preserves the polite tone set in the preceding sentences.

First I wanted to say "please teach me japanese" but I changed to "I'm learning japanese". I just forgot to change the romaji.

1. What does that particle で mean?
2. 日本語に興味が深いです means "I am deeply interested in the japanese language" right?

1. This で is the て form of だ/です, so it means "is... and"
2. Right.
