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 How do you write the sound “wu”?
@istrasci Swoozie Kurtz doesn't have her own Japanese wikipedia page, but I managed to find her name on the page for Liar Liar. It's transcribed スウージー・カーツ.

Why not look up each word individually, or type in each word and see what the IME gives you?

comment Does the lack of は change the sentence?
Unfortunately, I'm not confident enough that's the answer. Particles on adverbs is one of my weakest areas of Japanese.

comment Does the lack of は change the sentence?
In this sentence きのう is an adverb, not a noun. There would normally not be a は unless it were specifically needed for emphasis.
