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勉強しました。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や興味があります。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。

@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to close because I thought the answer to the other question answered this one, but you're right, it doesn't. Close vote rescinded.

@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”?
