hey~^^ (this is just the same topic like "let's learn korean" but this is for japanese^^ )

anyways, since there's a lot of you who love watching Jdrama, then there must be some (or a lot) of japanese words/phrases tt you get to learn right?
so... how about sharing those words tt u know? just type in all the words tt u know n of course, the meanings~ ^^
this is fun; sharing n learning at the same time~! XD
