View topic - Hey
Just a few things to point out about what you wrote in Japanese (which generally strikes me as good). First, when writing "wa" as a particle ("boku wa", "kon'nichi wa", etc), it's written as は (usually typed into an IME as "ha"), not わ).
Also, I don't think 悪い is really used this way, to refer to the "goodness" or "badness" of a skill. I'd suggest you use 下手 or something similar instead.
And for some reason, the phrase フォラム (not フォウラム) で書きます strikes me as a little odd-sounding somehow. I wonder if フォラムに書き込みます or 書き込んでいます might work better.
Hope that helps!

In the case of こんにちは it is not immediately obvious that it is a particle は from reading romaji (roman letters), certainly if you just learnt the word without understanding the etymology, but fortunately こんにちは and こんばんは are the only two common greetings which use the particle (unless I forgot/missed something.) こんにちわ looks like a kind of misspelling on purpose, kind of like slang I guess. I would avoid it.
フォーラムで少し練習したいです/ 練習してみました or something for an alternative. Welcome to TJP

Anyway, my sentence structuring has lots of problems(the woes of self-studying) due to the fact that I'm currently mainly just memorizing vocab.
That's why I'm trying to expose myself to written Japanese(or typing in this case).
Anyway, I use a combination of materials, Anki's smart.fm 2000 flash card to build up vocab. Rita Lampkin's Japanese Verb and essentials of grammar for conjugations of verbs(I'm really bad at this though), Complete Japanese Adjective Guide by Ann Tarumoto and Basic Kanji Book for well, Kanji. Particles, I tend to just infer what they mean and know only a few は、が、の、へ、で, its hard to figure out when to use what(Even now I'm having trouble with 'wa' and 'ga').
