If you are going to type in romaji it is a good practice not to leave letters out, ie use kana spelling or wāpuro rōmaji. That way when you use the IME to input Japanese text you will get the correct results. For example, "benkyo" will not give 勉強 as a candidate yet "benkyou" will.

Although I admit I use "o" instead of "wo" for readability.

What is "duse"?

nihongo no benkyou o shimasu
日本語の勉強をします

or you could say;
nihongo o benkyou shimasu
日本語を勉強します

My guess for "Suki duse kara, nihong ko ben kyo o shimasu ^.^" would be "Suki desu kara, nihongo o benkyou shimasu ^.^"

Which I think would mean something like "Since I love it, I'm studying Japanese", right? :)

"dues" is "desu" :shock:

It is so obvious when you point it out. :mrgreen:

But "ko" being "o" and "o" being " " is still not clear. I still believe "ko" is "no". :)
