Just wondering, do you pronounce the words the way they are spelt or do they sound different when you speak it?

Uhmmm How can I know If I'm using the right one. I mean for example goodbye means sayonara but also be ja ne.


ja nee is quite informal while sayounara is formal. Ja nee is just like 'see yah' while sayounara is 'farewell and goodbye'..

the grammar is different. japanese use to make a sentence very simple. just like if they want to say 'I like you'. they won't use I or you. They will say straight forward 'like' or 'I like' and they will get the message quickly. That's what I know. I'm not that good either but this is what I've heard saw and learnt. Hope it will help....

bsides,im not good in japanese,like i said earlier ^^ i hope other members can help..
and btw,does anyone knows what 'ora' or 'ora ora' means?? ^^


ora I think it means just like Hey. When someone said Ora ora they meant 'hey! hey!'...eng people also said that. Just like when someone was doing something under control they will say hey hey.

When saying desu does one need to say "des-uh" or is "dess" okay? Emphasis on the "u" is subtle. Too subtle to even hear. So I wonder....

anata or kimi ni hontou ni suki(ga). I'm not sure how to say I miss you. i hope this is the right one. I heard it lots of time but I'm not sure if this is the real way you say it.

japanese always add su in the end. it's just like a dialect. they use to do it. that's what my mum said. I don't think it does matter if you use it or not.

I'm currently trying to learn Japanese, and I have read in various places that the
best place to start is with the hirigana(since this is also wat children in Japan start with),
then move to Katakana, the slowly learn Kanji.
I was wondering if this was the best way to progress?
and also what's the best method for learning hirigana?

I read that Japanese follows the subject-object-verb formation.
In english we follow the subject-verb-object formation.
so in general instead of it being, dog-ran-ball (english)
it would be dog-ball-ran, in Japanese =3
hope that helps (found this on Japanese.about.com)
