Heyy! My name is Ling Ling from HONG KONG =D LOL
I've been studying Japanese for like, I don't know, four months I think.
{I'm ONLY 13! 13! THIRTEEN! xD}
Well, I've got a Japanese penpal whose 14 {FOURTEEN!} and we've been doing a language exchange by emailing! Woot! =DD
I'm not sure why, but when she corrected my Japanese e-mail, it is different from mine. Totally.
I don't know why I made these mistakes, so if any can point out WHY I made each mistake I made, I'd be sooo super happy!! {sorry its HUGE><}

Here's my email in Japanese:

アユミチャン!!! やあ!!! (*'O'*)
お元気ですか???

ああ!!! あなたは風邪を持っていますか?!!!
少なくともあなたはあなたの学校の試験を乗り遅れた!!
私は近日怠るあなたがほしい私そして、嫌気が差すあなたから、あなた向け挨拶状を
造ったです!!!
挨拶状が好あなた希望きそして、近日怠って下さい!!!!!

昨日、私はおかあさん一勝にエマラードスクワーマルに買い物行った!!!
服とシイヂイ如く物を多くの買った!! 楽しかったよ!!
私は友達一勝に買い物行きたいけど、とても忙しいでした。
服はとてもかわいい買っただよ!!!
日本で人気日本人の店は何ですか??
フィエレネスはここに人気ですので、服を奇麗と良いがあります!!!

3月はあなたの卒業式向けする!?!?!
その久々だよ!!!
学校は2週間持ったばかり私たち!!!
あら!! あなたは蛍写真を撮ったか??
かっこいい!!

さよなら!!! それではまた!!

あなたの良い親友 アメリア

二伸: 日本語で「with」は話すする何てか?? 「と」ですか??

And my penpal's version of my e-mail except corrected:

やあ!!あゆみちゃん!!(*’0’*)
お元気ですか?? Or 元気??

風邪を引いたのですか??
でもあなたはあなたの学校の試験を免れた!!!
あなたが病気の時から私はあなたの為にカードを作りました。
私はあなたが早く気分が良くなって欲しいです!!
あなたがこのカードを好きなことを望みます!!

昨日、私はお母さんとEmeraldスクエアMallで買い物をしに行きました!!!
私たちは、多くのもの(CDと服のなど)を買いました!!!それは、楽しかったです!!!
私は私の友人と買い物をしに行きたかったです、しかし、彼らは忙しかったです。
私が買った服は、とてもかわいいです!!
どんな店が日本では人気ですか??
素晴らしい服売っているので、Fileneはここで人気があります!!!

あなたの卒業式3月??
それは、長い間です!!!!
私の学校で、我々はちょうど今2週を持ちました!!
ああ!!あなたは、ホタルの写真を撮りました!!?

haha. lucky. you have a japanese penpal, and you are the same age as me and you have been studying for a bit longer than myself and you can already do that kind of stuff!!? lucky (even though it has many mistakes in it). i would make just about a million mistakes... so saddening. eh, well, i guess since you live in china you would have to know a lot of kanji stuf.

i am not fluent enough to correct anything, and if i do there is a 90% chance it will be wrong, so...gomenne...i remember in...either 4th or 5th grade in art class we had to do a project with calligraphy...i failed it horribly...

original:ああ!!! あなたは風邪を持っていますか?!!!
correction:風邪を引いたのですか

Wrong verb. The Japanese idiom for having a cold is 風邪を引く. Many of your problems are word choice or phrasing, or lack of particles. Learn from your penpal's corrections, and gradually you'll improve.

Some of your mistakes were spelling. 一勝(いっしょう) one win for 一緒(いっしょ) together.

Others are conjugation problems. You conjugate -i adjectives when they are the predicate, not the copula that's added for politeness: 忙しいです in the past is 忙しかったです not 忙しいでした。

Plant and animal names are most commonly written in katakana, which is why she used ホタル instead of 蛍

Dude, the reason you made the mistakes is exactly what Paul said. Because you've only been doing it for a few months.

As to *what* the mistakes were... well, that's a different question.
