はじめまして。 わたしの なめえ は コーヒー クリス です。
よろしくおねがいします。

if i got all that right it should be, How do you do. My name is Kris Caughey. Please be kind to me.

I have been learning Japanese for a few months now but i am still very much a noob. I am hoping this site and the community here will help me to progress in my learning.

ありがとございます

TJPへようこそ! :wave:

Pretty close! I notice a few small typos... なめえ should be なまえ and ありがと should be ありがとう

The only other thing I might mention is that being a foreigner, you'd probably still put your "first name" first, and your "last name" last. Not really sure about that though. :think: I'll leave that to the experts. ^_^

Welcome! :mrgreen:

those silent u's get me all the time. And my spelling in English is bad, so only 2 in Japanese is me doing well.

"TJPへようこそ" i read this as "The Japanese page pass for sure" Or " TJP experience for sure"
I need to get experience in translating written text into a readible version and not just straight word for word.

It's TJP へ ようこそ → "TJP e youkoso"

TJP <direction particle> <welcome>

Welcome to TJP

:D

Welcome to TJP

:D


i read it as TJP  へよう (i did not read my dictionary right as it showed a kanji in place of へthats were i got pass/experience)  こそ (for sure)

I really need practice in recognising where words start and end and which parts are the particals. Thanks for the corrections, its the only way i will get better.

No problem. :) Like you said, it's something that comes with practice. The more you learn vocabulary and about the particles etc, and the more Japanese you read, the better a feel you get for parsing things. It's just one of those tricky bits at first. :)

がんばってね! :mrgreen:
