Nami?

 

and about the i, in my opinion both kuro and kuroi means black, it depends on how the other wants to write it.... since you both can write it in 黒. I think it just depends on how the other says it ;D...

Wrong.

 

No,it's not a matter of how you feel like saying. It's grammar. The kanji reading is "kuro",but as adjective it's "kuroi". When I post that lesson,you'll get it better. (:

Its that google translator my best friend is. Otoko!!! -cheats-

 

Mm, but if you write kuroi in hiragana it also changes into 'kuro' lool. Its that my main characters name is kuroii, further i know no shid in dat. xD

Saga! you changed it! Haha, no wonder we got it wrong...

 

 

otoko - man

 

And yeah, I relise it's grammar. 赤 and 黒 are the kanji, and い is used to call an object that colour. Or something. >.

 

*feel like I should pay you*

Right.

Meaning: Man

New word:

ひみつ

 

Fine,I'll explain it now.

There is actually a thing in the Japanese input system. Because of modernization.

In kanji combinations,it's ''Kuro''. But only when used as adj,it's ''kuroi''. If you want to say 'Black tears', it's not 'kuro namida',but 'kuroi namida'. Also,when it's in front of particles such as 'no'. Even if you type it 'kuroi no',it will transform it into 'kuro no'. Take an example the anime 'Ao no exorcist',ne? (:

Never heard of that one before, saka - meaning hill?

 

but in 2 years you will be better than you are now, so realisticly I will never be better than you.

I just hope to be fluent.

 

I think Hime is trying to prove she is faster than me :p Btw, how old are you, Hime? I thought 16 maybe?

Right.

Meaning: Hill

New word:

やさしい

 

Hime,LMAO. Almost,indeed.

People say sake is not strong,but not true,lol. If you drink it warm,in shots - you are knocked down.

 

Chi,what's that? Pessimism?

Progressing is actually a thing we should do all our lives. In a split of second,I might stop with Japanese,for a reason or two. Then what? Won't you be better?

Besides,even if I don't stop... one's brain has a capacity,different from other's one. Mine might be not enough,who knows. You might be the one surpassing me.

A student always should think positive.

 

Another thing I learnt from Asians, you'll never surpass your teacher,if you see them as a teacher/master. Take them on the edge,see them as an opponent and bring yourself to the point of smashing everything on your way. Your teacher will bow head,content that the student had the spirit,bigger than theirs. (:
