watashi wa igirisujin desu, eigo o hanashimasu.
I am seeing whether this sentence structure is right, it should, if Im right, translate to "because I think japanese is interesting, I must study it."
yatte mitai
nihongo ga omoshiroii to omoimasu node,
watashi wa nihongo o benkyou shinakereba narimasen
if not dou yatte

Hi, hajimemashite!
watashi wa igirisujin desu, eigo o hanashimasu.
I think its structure is right.

And the translation for the "because....must study it" is also matched with the english version.

But i'm wondering why the sentence was not: because Nihong go is very interesting, i want to study it?
Nihongo ga sugoku omoshiroi node, nihongo wo benkyou shitai.

Looks perfect. Now you have to work on writing it in Japanese characters...

You dropped your と. ;)

By the way, Anti-Jenova, your .sig graphic is too large. Max size is 100 pix in height.

Is there suppose to be a full stop or comma after "desu" in your first sentence? Because, if it really is meant to be a comma, I'm pretty sure you'd turn the "desu" into "de".

E.g. watashi wa IGIRISUjin de, eigo o hanashimasu.
I'm British (from Britain/UK...), and I speak English.
... as opposed to...
watashi wa IGIRISUjin desu. eigo o hanashimasu.
I'm British. I speak English.
