comment Is there a standard way to clearly differentiate similar handwritten (kana) characters?
@Paul a bit late on the reply. In the sense of adding extra strokes to something to be extra clear, there is nothing that I have seen. In my experience, though, even writing quickly you should be able to differentiate between ツ and シ so long as you follow the stroke order/direction rules.

comment Expressing difference between “fluent” and “native speaker” in Japanese
@konishiki The experiences of some are not the experiences of all. I saw plenty of Chinese/Taiwanese, Filipino, Korean students who were born in Japan or came at a young age and weren't bullied in normal Japanese schools. Even a half Chinese/Israeli girl who had no problems. Many of them you would never know they weren't Japanese if you weren't told so. And plenty of ethnic Japanese people struggle with keigo. I get the point that you're making but I don't think it's something that you can really generalize. Also people like the zainichi...

"the only native speakers of Japanese are Japanese people" -- That's a bit of an assumption, and an inaccurate one...

comment How to thank you in Japanese?
What exactly are you asking? Do you have another way to say 'thank you' in mind that you'd like to have clarified?
