Time for a Japanese lesson, 行くぞ!

It's not nearly as complex as English, but as usual we find ways to screw it up.

Even if there are no classes where you live (that's the situation where I am), there are good books and CDs to learn at least japanese basics. It's not the same thing, but better than nothing :)

P.s.: japanese pronounce is quite easy to me: it's only necessary to learn how to correctly say "a e i o u" (and they aren't difficult at all) and that's it. Reading kanji is another matther, tho :D

I don't have to learn how to pronounce correctly 'a i u e o', because it's the same pronounce of portuguese.

Indeed, but better than nothing.

@winx_rose: I strongly suggest the "teach yourself japanese" book + CD: they're really easy and well done. I'm learning quite a lot from it, at least to know the basis and then move on to more complex things :)

"I never want to talk to you in my whole life"... the grammar sounds strange for that.
But anyway.

My lord, it's as confusing as English! I would love to take formal (as in in a class room, tests, teacher, etc.) Japanese lessons but it's quite hard to find a Japanese teacher in rural Louisiana. ><

So a simple conversation could be

人A: あのね。
人B: 何
人A: CHICKEN BUTT

haha, how do you say "chicken butt" :)
