I spent my Junior year of university in Yamaguchi, Japan, and am currently studying for N1 to get into a post-grad program to become an interpreter.

comment Counter for 熊 (bears): ひき or 頭?
That was what I thought...I can't say as I'm not a native speaker, but it sounds like using 匹 for a bear is somehow cute-ifying it. "Ohhh, look at the little bear! She's so furry!" Never mind it can take your head off your shoulders with one fuzzy paw...

That seems to be the consensus, I just wanted to ask around to see if I was missing something. Thanks Fefe :)

comment Is there a form for “I have never heard of”?
@Myeong You would add まだ before the verb; there may be other ways, but that's the easiest :)

comment How can I differentiate agreement with the person and agreement with the idea?
That's a really good question, I have a hard time with those myself! Wouldn't 「そうだ」 be like 「そうですね」? Because to me that seems a little ambivalent...a filler phrase to let the speaker know you've understood what they've said. Granted my grasp on this area is quite weak...

comment Why are there 3 ways of writing in Japanese?
@Andrew I think what he meant was that, of course it is not the proper way of writing if you use all caps, but one can read it, and it doesn't really change the meaning of the words.
