that's because katananja doesn't know Angelfire doesn't like offlinking. :)

oh, and don't address him/her as "-chan". They don't take those lightly. :p better use "-san" instead to be politically correct.:)

i believe that chan is the more informal one, usually adressed to younger girls or samll children, where san is more formal but still not addressed to your superior..

Quickie Guide to Addressing Japanese People :D

"-san" --> used in addressing unfamiliar people, or even acquaintances.

"-chan" --> used in addressing people (usually female) close to you.

"-kun" --> used in addressing boys younger than you (though some Japanese use it also in conjunction with girls' names.)

"-sempai" -->used in addressing people senior to you (in rank)

"BAKAYARO!" -->used in addressing jerks/bums :D

lets see if I can put together a sentence then shall we?
"Komban wa Katananja-san. Watashi wa bakka america-jin desu."
(I'm going by what time it is when I posted this.)
Will that work out? :D

actually, the sentence construction was okay....the japanese would understand it's a gaijin who's talking anyway. :D


You're on the right path. :) keep on trying, and you'll eventually be able to go to Japan someday and actually get to have a coherent conversation with the game store clerk :D pretty helpful in ferreting out those rare, Japan-only games. :D

Hello ASZ :)

The sentence is perfect, but you know what you talking about??
"Good Evening Katananja-san. I'm a stupid american" ???

Well, :
- Ore wa ninhondin janai desuyo, boku no kuni wa BRASIL (BURAJIRU) desu.
Daquedo ima wa ninhon ni sundeimasu :-D
Yorohike ne!
