greetings from the Netherlands

Post by shades-of-grey » Fri 07.22.2011 5:25 am

こんいちは、shades-of-grey です。

I've been studying 日本語 for a little time now, with TJP being maybe the best online source I've been using.
So I decided to bite the bullet and join the community, and maybe actually practice a bit too..? ^_^

I'm pretty bad at these sort of things, never really know what to say.. but annyhow, よろしくおねがいします。

shades-of-greyさん、TJPへようこそ! :wave:

「こんいちは」 <-- that one's a little tricky because in the IME you need to either hit the n key 3 times in a row, or type it like kon'nichiha so that you can be sure to properly spell こんにちは :) (the first ん is made by typing nn, so it "steals" the n from your に, leaving you with い)

Something to keep an eye on. :D

がんばってね!

はう、がんばります!

It's somewhat ironic that I spelled こんにちは wrong, as I gave extra attention to include the ん. :sweatdrop:
So instead of doing 「こにちは」 I still did 「こんいちは」... at least I didn't put an わ there :P
phreadomさん、ありがとう for the tip.
