comment Ending an email in Japanese to your sensei?
@Rilakkuma I do see a どうぞ variation listed on this ビジネスマナー site. With regard to 致します, would you say it's best to use that with a professor over します?

comment What is the difference between だらけ and ばかり
I agree that it's probably most often negative, but even if you look on the video provided in the OP the guy uses 今日は良いことだらけだ

comment How does one give directions in Japanese (e.g. to a cab driver)?

Let's try making the question about how to describe where your house is. How would you describe it in English, and what would be your best guess for the Japanese?
