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。

comment Usage of particles で and に with ~的
If it said あるの地域では男性がスカートをはく, では would be appropriate because 世界の地域 (parts of the world) is a noun.

comment Alternate の particle usage
So when would 運がいい/肌がきれい/勇気がある be used? And is it still correct to use が when the phrase modifies a noun?

comment What's the difference between ~しか~ない and ~だけしか~ない?
I like to think of ~しか as meaning "no more than~".

comment Difference in usage between exclamations: クソ vs. しまった
@jovanni Do they both mean the same thing but one is just more vulgar than the other? Or do they carry different meanings as well?

comment Use of どうして わかりましたか
Why どうして? Would どうわかりましたか be valid as well?

comment Why does the 文語 version of the Bible have so many nonstandard readings?
The non-standard, classical kanji of the Japanese Bible seems very analogous to the non-standard, classical words and phrases of the English Bible :)

comment Difference between 検索する and 探す
@yadokari Yea, that's where I got the kanji from, but I'm looking for a more in depth explanation here. A dictionary can only tell you that two words are synonyms, but it doesn't explain when to use one over the other.
