It is safe for work, but I don't think it is safe for the sanity of anyone serious about studying Japanese.

That was as far as I went into the thread.

It looks like some of the people "correcting" him ought not be throwing stones.

My 2 cents say it's just a gag aimed at those who want to sound l337 because they can say "koh-neechee-waah" complete with ninja pose and crippling accent (I know someone like that).

I bet you don't even know how to say "fag" in Japanese...correctly.


I love this quote. B)

Good Lord.

That's the first time I've posted in that forum for... oh, wow. Must be a year or so.

I believe that this is just some random words/kana he has copied somewhere to fil in his hiragana chart. Now he's confused, because his provider, FreeWebs, automaticly changes Japanese script to &# 12345 ; form when it's saved and he can't figure out which part corresponds to a certain character...

I just love that 2+ Word Phrases/Sentences section, my especial favourites are "Very Very - Totemo", "Good-Natured - Hito Ga Ii" and "Sacred Fire - Seika". Very useful sentences indeed.

If I say something wrong I'd rather be told than have others snicker behind my back. :)

Gee, I feel a little sorry for the li'l dude. He's apparently trying to learn Japanese in parallel with building a page commemorating his efforts - why he'd advertise it is beyond me, though. Probably proud of how far he's gotten already, or something.
How old do you figure he is?

I'm sorry, but just reading some of that had me literally laughing out loud...

I have become inspired to create my own "ultimate japanese site!!!" It will have such gems as
そうですね -- Your mother is a crocodile.

This isn't because I don't know better, but rather that I hate having competition. The more people thinking that そうですね is "Your mother is a crocodile," the better I look by comparison.


:DHaha you may be on to something there

It isn't incumbent upon me to sign up for every damned place I spot someone making an error of some sort and correct them on it.

And why do you think I was "snickering" at them.

I was just making a general comment, not an accusation.

Wow, this guy is a total DOINK. :o

I especially like his doinky "hiragana chart"...

Another doinky site I found: http://www.loveofanime.com/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=22

I mean, I like anime and manga but this site is just RIDICULOUS. I especially like the simplistic description of grammar (with NO mention of particles), "o-ai dekite ureshii desu", and the fact that they teach words like 「銀水晶」 and 「変身」. *rolls eyes*
