Took Japanese on and off through college (2 years of classwork total). Studied abroad at Kanazawa Institute of Technology for one summer. Anime and video game enthusiast. Always interested in polishing my skills. My greatest sources of practice these days are watching anime and playing Japan exclusive video games. Right now I have a goal to read a Japanese 17 x 11 book cover to cover.

大学の時日本語を断続的にとりました。ある夏金沢工業大学で留学しました。アニメやビデオゲーム狂です。いつも技能を磨きたいんです。主な練習の仕方はアニメを見たり日本語のビデオゲームをしたりすることです。 今私の目標は日本語の新書を読むことです。

Just because it's a yes/no question, doesn't make it on topic for the site.

Is it rude to say 私も in a situation where です/ます form is appropriate?

comment R sound vs L sound
@snailboat Yea, I agree with that rule. I only voted to close because I thought the answer to the other question answered this one, but you're right, it doesn't. Close vote rescinded.

What about 知る (shiru--to know)? That's a state, but it takes を (o).

comment What's a nice way to say “fingers crossed”?
@Tim Personally, I think it's better when an explanation of the phrase is given.

comment What's a nice way to say “fingers crossed”?
-1 Because there's no explanation of what the idiom means in English, some people might not know what the idiom means.

comment When women use わ at the end of a sentence, is it different from よ?
@Matt Does the わ always have to come first? Can it be よわ as well?

comment What does 工夫(する) mean?
+1 I remember when I was studying in Japan, our teacher taught us this word. We asked what 工夫する meant, and she just kept saying "工夫の意味は「device」なので、「する」を付けると動詞になります". None of us knew how to explain that there is no clear verb form of "device" lol
