I have been learning Japanese for almost a year. However, I still have some hardship on writing something in Japanese...

Would it be okay If I put it like this:


It doesn't really make sense to me but I can't seem to organize it properly.. Can someone help please?

This is a nice try and virtually all Japanese-speakers would understand what you are trying to say.

If I were asked, however, whether or not that sentence was 100% natural-sounding, I would have to say 'no'.

It would be more natural if you used the verb form 「投稿しています」 if you have already been doing it even for a couple of days. This is indeed one of the biggest differences between real Japanese and Japanese-as-a-foreign-language.

I have seen/heard so many Japanese-learners say:


Native Japanese speakers, however, would invariably say:


The first sentence using 「します」 is grammatical, but it can sound like studying Japanese is something the speaker plans to do in the (near) future. It sounds like something said by a high school senior who is planning to study or major in Japanese in college.

Next, the 「日本の歴史,文化と神話について」 part is not necessarily incorrect or unnatural, but it can be improved a little. I would recommend:

    Thank you so much, I am trying as hard as I can in order to sound natural. Nov 1, 2019 at 14:18

歴​史と文​化と神​話 - there is no enumeration comma.

    I didn't downvote, but even with the changes you listed, I think the sentence will still sound unnatural.

  • @ajsmart But nonetheless, you would agree that the comma is an error, I assume. Probably better: 歴​史と文​化と神​話について口コミを投稿する

    I agree that the comma was an error. The issue in my opinion is the 'to post' part. I personally am not sure what sounds natural in that situation, but I can say that what was originally posted seemed off to me.
