I'm here to help you.

Postby Chico » Sun 10.08.2006 8:06 am

Hi, I'm Japanese named Chico.
I'd like to exchange cultures, feelings, etc. with people all over the world.
I tried to find a Japanese site for chatting with foreign people, but I thought it would be easier if I searched websites with people who want to study Japanese, and I found this page.
I'd like to study English here, which might not suit the purpose of this site, but I'll try to help anyone who has questions as much as I can.
Feel free to ask me :)
and any corrections to my English are appreciated.
Thanks!

よろしくお願いします!

I corrected the introduction which I had written before based on rich san's corrections.
rich san, ありがとうございました。

Now I would like to clarify this, I'm NOT a boy, I AM a girl.
Most of the people that I have met once thought I'm a boy because of my name, chico, which means 'a boy' in Spanish.
I'm kind of having fun with it, though..
というわけで、よろしくお願いします! :D

Do you want grammatical corrections? If so, there is always a comma before "which" if you use "that" you don't need a comma.

はじめまして!

Thank you for your correction.
I've been studying English for ages, but i still keep making mistakes.
Your picture is ユウナ from Final Fantasy X, right?
I've played that game before.
仲良くしてくださいね:)

Of course, she is probably my favorite character. By the way, you are quite good at English. I only hope to master Japanese like you mastered English.

Hi, I'm Chico, Japanese.

This type of introduction is not common in English. "I'm Chico. I'm Japanese." or "I'm a Japanese named Chico." would be more natural.

I tried to find a Japanese site for chatting with foreign people, but I thought it would be easier if I searched for websites with people all over the world. "Searching websites for people" is a natural expression, but I think is slightly different from your intended meaning. The pronoun "I" should always be capitalized.

Pleased to meet you, richvh san.
Thank you very much for your detailed corrections!
I really appreciate it! ありがとうございます。
これから楽しくお話できるのを楽しみにしています。

はじめまして、creativityさん。 :)
I've been studying for like 10years. It's really difficult to learn foreign language, but it's fun as well.
This is the first time to come to this site, and I'm surprised that many people study Japanese really hard here!

y0ungkwang san,
I know, every boys likes her.
By the way, my way of posting is strange?
I'm not used to this kind of things.
If I should do in another way, tell me how to do it.
I'm looking forward to reading your Japanese.

It's better if you write just one post instead of two or three in a row (double-posting or triple-posting).

Using "like" in that context is slangy.

"This is the first time I have come to this site" or "This is my first time coming to this site" would be better.

Well, multi-posting is frowned on. Try to edit all your replies into one post.
I'm looking forward to reading your Japanese.

Let me test with your posting.
Is this better?
I don't really get this.

This is double posting and is what you should avoid doing.

Chicoさん。はじめまして。
ダブルポストに関しては、いろいろなご意見があると思いますが
こういうケース(←クリック)もありまして、それを排除するために、短時間での連続投稿はなるべくひとつにまとめるようにしようというのがこのサイトの方針のようです。
(編集画面から、連続投稿をひとつにまとめることもできます)

ここにはRichさんをはじめ、親切な方がたくさんいらっしゃるので英語の勉強にもなると思います。チャットもありますので、もしよろしければそちらの方にも参加なさってください。
日本人も何人か参加しておられますのでお気軽にどうぞ。

では今後ともよろしくお願いいたします。 :)
