こにちわ!

I am new to the forum, though I've been frequenting the website for a couple months now. I start formal Japanese education at the uni in a few weeks, and I look forward to joining in the learning experience with others on this board as I continue throughout the curriculum. Thanks for providing such an awesome site!

i love that approach! i myself make lots of mistakes...even though ive been learning for a wile, i still consider myself a noob :)

have fun learning here!

the ha/wa thing is because, in japanese text, the partical wa is written as ha but pronounced wa. hth.

そうか。ありがとう!

It appears to be a long and challenging road ahead (albeit a fun one!). I can't wait to actually start classes. :D
