Yeah those N's can be a little tricky with the keyboard. For some reason, you have to hit it 3 times if you watch to write something like "Konnichiha".
こんんいちわ みんんあさん! わたし の なまえ わ こあらへいん で す. よろしくね!^^

こんにちはみんなさん!わたしのなまえは<-- use "ha" hereコアラへイン(katakana for foreign names)です。よろしくね^^

good job please keep it up! If you're korean, you'll learn japanese very very quickly.

It's like a cake-walk for us koreans while we watch these pathetic foreigners try and perfect the language MWAHHAHA

those are "Hello"s you use in different situations. like...

1. A stranger near you who you see on the streets: O-i! Moshi! = that means.. : H~ey! If (you have time to talk)

2.To greet : YAA~(hey), Yoo~(sup/hey/yo!), konnichiha(hello)

3. On the phone when you first answer: Moshimoshi = Hello?

4. Don't know the kanjis used on this one.... but it says- Oya! Ara!

you might notice "ara!" from watching anime, a lot of anime girls use it.

Oya.. I only hear grannies using it.


Theres.....4ways....of just saying Hello.?!.........*faints*......

i would advise you to break up the words . it makes ppl learn it easier to pronounce them.

Example :

Konnichiwa : Ko-ni-chi-wa

Another Example is

Goshinpai Naku : go-shin-pai na-ku (it means dont worry)

Ureshii : u-re-shi (means happy)
the spelling of the word and the actual saying of the word may be totally different like as in characters(letters) added in

An Example would be itadakimasu. Pronounced as i-ta-da-ki-mas.

or

Sou yo. pronounced as so-yo. Hai sou yo means yes it is

in japanese letters, the "u" is extracted in the phrase.

Hope that helped everyone out there. and good luck in learning Japanese everyone!!!

etto..
Hajimemashite!
Watashi no namae wa Alison desu.
Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu!

i think for point 4, it probably refers to the things you say when you're surprised/shocked or just exclaiming.
i hope that helps XD

this is a very fun forum.
