comment Are there any common grammatical errors made by native Japanese speakers?
@istrasci: Yes, that is the case when spoken, but omitting the それ in writing is not acceptable. Also, there is generally a better way to phrase the sentence in most cases, for example 私最近とても忙しいんです。なので、ちょっと予定が立てにくいんです would be better as 私最近とても忙しいので、ちょっと予定が立てにくいんです. (example taken from here)

comment Are there any common grammatical errors made by native Japanese speakers?
@istrasci: The of なので is the same one as seen in 簡単な問題, so grammatically it is used to connect 形容詞, etc. (called 連体形) to other words. When な is used at the beginning of a sentence, its incorrect because it isn't attached to anything.

comment Why is 〜に受かる used to mean “to pass”?
@Tony: I'm having a difficult time understanding your comment. In an example like, 星が見える場所, the doer of the action is not indicated, unless I am misunderstanding what you are saying.

comment Why is 〜に受かる used to mean “to pass”?
@Tony: That form can mean different things depending on context. For example as a polite form or expressing possibility.

comment Why is 〜に受かる used to mean “to pass”?
@firtree: I'm not sure I follow, with に, whatever comes before is always the exam, or what is being passed or failed. With が it establishes who is doing the passing or failing. Is this what you are referring to? Also, I'm not sure how "the examiner" plays a role though. Could you provide an example?

comment Why is 〜に受かる used to mean “to pass”?
@Tony: It's に落ちる because you need to attain a certain level to pass the test, in other words you fall below that level.

@Tony: 受かる was used to mean radio waves being received by an antenna, etc. (intransitive version of receive) (similar to "pick up radio waves" in English) Googling brings up some hits.

comment How long would it take on average to learn Japanese
Reading text in video games is actually quite high level if the game does not allow you to pause to read the text. I would say it probably would take a few years.

comment What does ホイっと mean?
@Mumei: Where are you getting the think part from? I would translate it as Yeah, like it's that easy to find one (a boyfriend) (in a sarcastic manner). The っと is the same phenomenon as from にこにこと笑う to にこっと笑う which I believe happens in conversation (I don't know the exact details though).

comment What does ホイっと mean?
@Mumei: It means doing something easily rather than thinking, also it implies "carelessly" and "thoughtlessly" (look up the definition for 軽々しい).

comment What is the connection between shrimp and old age?
Ah, I was just typing the same answer. +1 (The part before that about the relation to grapes is also interesting).
