I have booked my first course in the Japanese language. Reading, writing, listening and speaking.
I received my acceptance letter yesterday (along with the receipt for quite a hefty sum!).
All being well, it starts on the 19th of April and i am doing the course with a friend, so i hope that will make things easier.
It's a part-time evening course (1 night a week from 6.30pm to 8.30pm) and it's the first term of three in the beginner level.
I wanted to share this with everyone here as if it wasn't for this forum i don't think i would have booked it!

Peace,
Smoke.

The last course I took in Japanese 2 years ago was taught by a beautiful 21 year old Japanese girl. My eyes absorbed much more then my brain did!
Hopefully you will get to go to Japan Smoke and use your new skill!

Lexico is dead on! This might actually show you the beauty of all the languages of the world. A linguist to be? I think so. Any questions you have can definitely be answered by many of our Japanese aficionados in the Japanese Language section of this wonderful forum also! Along with your sensei, you can become a genius of the Japanese language. Ganbare!

Long black hair?

I didn't think anyone in Japan had black hair anymore.

It's been eliminated from their genes.

Good for you mate. I'm try ing the less expensive way of teach yourself. Lapsed a bit at the moment, as I've had a pretty busy month. Good luck with the course. :-)
I can already tell the time and order coffee. Fat lot of use that is, I don't drink coffee. :okashii:

yeah i looked at teach yourself...but i felt that by attending a class i wouldn't have to motivate myself at home whilst sitting infront of the TV like a square eyed zombie...at least in a class i am there to learn and not surrounded by distractions!

Mr White.
I hope my class is exactly like yours!!! after 8 years i'd only be able to tell you my name and what day it is...but it'd be worth it!

Leroy_brown....erm, are you being serious or just taking the p!ss.

Actually, what's been eliminated from their genes is their desire to not dye their hair and leave it black.
