Show off ;-)

Are you fluent? All I managed, after going out with my Japanese gf for six years, was a few sound bytes. I tend to be say "nani" a lot. It's a very tough language to master.

いいえ。日本語は難しいではない。たくさんRULESありますが、英語より日本語のほうが易しいです。

Perhaps while you were with your girlfriend, your mind was on other subjects :oops:

Actually, I'm being unfair again ( :cry: ) ... You said that it's a tough language to master, and I'd agree with that 100% !!

Any language is tough to master -- me, I'm still working on my Osakan yakuza accent. (本間やな.アホが見るブタのケツ.) But spoken Japanese isn't all that tough, learning to read and write is a bit more challenging... although I did finally accomplish my objective of plowing through Yukio Mishima's Temple of the Golden Pavilion in the original this year.

No, it's a site for Japanese people so what did you expect...?

Depends. The u is pronounced short and weak if at all, especially at the ends of words, but more clearly if you're speaking politely. So you say hello to "Susumu-san" when handing over your business card, and slur "S's'mu" after the third bottle of sake.

JP, am I missing something? If not, then let's take down above post. I don't see any added value here.

I presume it's a joke, son. Not a very good one though.
