はい

はい、learning Japanese does make me feel like a child. I can't hold a "real" conversation yet because I don't know all the big words! Just gotta keep trying :)

日本語は かわいい、 でも こわい です。

Yay, I get to try saying things and see if they made any sense to anyone!

But then no-one should use my English spelling as an example either.

The other one to be careful of is dewa as in dewa mata or dewa arimasen.
It's では not でわ
(では is often shortened to じゃ especially in speech)
Apparently young children make this sort of mistake.


Uh, yeah, junior high school kids make that same mistake.
And they love to use すいません rather than すみません in their formal writing.
I should be making a list of their Japanese mistakes, just to make all of us feel better.
The teachers are horrible, they read aloud all of the really bad mistakes to everyone else in the office.

すいません is commonly used as a colloquial すみません.
