comment What does it mean when newspapers give furigana for 常用{じょうよう} kanji?
I am not expert, but ひつじ is most often written 羊 (maybe not when talking about zodiac). Same thing, 雑事 common reading seems to be ざつじ and not ぞうじ. So I would say common kanjis, weird readings.

comment Is 「どこにいくのがよろしいですか」 a correct way to ask for directions?
Depending on the situation, I would maybe add the reason before, but yes, I feel you need to be blunt in this kind of questions... People are actually sometimes a bit baffled when I say that "I am looking for something" or "Would you know how to get somewhere".

Thanks for the insight... Being a non-american, I never really encountered the various aspects of the name of the country.

comment Can [面倒]{めんどう} be used as “boring”?
I would say that if you really want to convey "boring", you should use 面倒くさい, which is more explicit.

revised 私は米国人です vs 私はアメリカ人です
Just add a newline for formatting, and then reformatted a bit the french part, added a few things from wikipedia.
