Moshi moshi minasan. Donna hito wa nihongo ga wakarimasu ka?
Soshite, Boku wa nihongo no gakusei, demo, chotto wakarimasu.
Ok thats enough, I dont recall anything prohibiting posts in other languages, so there it be. Let this be the thread where people with an interest in Japan can share what they know, and learn what they dont. Anything goes.
Konnichiwa. Tsubaki desu. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu.
Watashi wa Nihon ni sunde 9 nen desu. Shufu desu. Soushite kodomo 3 nin ga imasu.
Watashi wa Matsuyama-shi ni sundeirunode, Iyo-ben ga tokui desu. Kirei na Nihongo amari shaberemasen.
Ozumo daisuki desu!
Mod-sama wa, gaikokugo no posuto ga dame da to yutta kara, eigo no hou ga ii ka mo shiranai.
This past Thursday marked my eighth full year in Japan (and my first full year of marriage). Started out as an English teacher, now working in advertising fighting a losing battle to stamp out Engrish.
And like Tsubaki, I’m a big fan of sumo.
Actually, IIRC one is not supposed to post in foreign languages on the board as that makes moderating even more difficult or impossible. No one seems to cre about a sentence here or there, but I do remember long posts being closed.
It should be OK if they provide a translation, right?
O~~~~su! Fnord-chan. Yôkoso.

Heeeeeeey! Welcome, Fnord.
As is written, I live in Gifu prefecture. I’m currently studying in a somewhat unusual graduate school, but before that I used to work in Osaka. Which means that, though I try, I don’t speak good “proper” Japanese. (Well, to be honest, I like the Kansai dialect better, so I don’t feel like trying that hard.)
I’m starting my fifth year in Japan.
I love sumo too. A while ago, my favourite wrestler, Terao retired and I’ve been wondering whether to support Asashoryu. Anyway, at the very least I’m looking forward to see how he turns out.
No, it is not o.k. to post threads that cause the moderators to spend their precious time thumbing through foreign language dictionaries.
