~Japanese~







Hello there, kind Trisphite. You've stumbled across this thread for one of three reasons...
1. You are trying to learn or improve your Japanese language skills...
2. You wish to help and tutor someone trying to learn the Japanese Language...
3. You accidentally clicked the thread because you have poor mouse coordination.
It doesn't matter the reason though... Because this thread isn't going anywhere. Eventually, I hope for this thread to be filled with tips to help people learn the language... You can even share some stories and try to help everyone here attempt to learn a new language.




This thread was made with the help of White, Lucid and hopefully everyone who wishes to help us learn this language.



Rules
Follow ALL rules. Terms of Service (ToS), Site Rules, Club House Rules, ect...
When Posting in Japanese, include the Romaji and English translations.
Do not Troll, Flame, Spam at all in this thread.
Be patient. It takes time to learn a new language.


More may and will be added at a later date.
