    Japanese typing...(I guess hirigana dont work in subjects?)

    こんいちわ。
    わたしわあめりかじんです。あなたわにほんじんですか。

    Ok, just thought I'd test japanese typing with something simple...

    **EDIT**im not really sure if this IME converted right or not...

    So, this is what it is supposed to say in english::

    "hello.
    I am an american. Are you japanese?"**

    It should be like this:

    こんにちは
    私はアメリカ人です。あなたは日本人ですか。
    in IME, after typing a word, press space to convert it to kanji!

    Hehe, I can read this
    Konnichiwa, watashi wa Ametica djin desu. Anata wa Niphon djin desu ka?

    I wonder, how to answer correctly…may be like this?

    -Ie, boku no kuni wa Roshia desu.

    Yes, but it's "iie"

    いいえ、僕の国はロシアです。

    and... how would be that in Russian?

    I guess you're asking me how long I have been studying Japanese... Well, I think it was like a year and a half, then I tried to pick up Russian, but I gave up because it's too difficult and now I'm returning to Japanese

    Hehe, I guess Japanese is more useful in usual life...computer games, movies, animation, music and so on….while Russian, I guess, can be found only in some USA-made movies about mafia and communists

    Russian can be found in loads of Sci-Fi stuff...and science-related stuff... because Russian scientists are wicked cool!

    But yeah, imho, japanese is much more useful in dailey life in that it is part of the "gaming culture", Anime is mostly in Japanese(the only other language I have seen original-anime-style stuff in is English)...not that big of a fan of Japanese music tho... I like the old stuff from under the shogunate and before...but the modern stuff sucks, imho. ((I'm a heavy metal/industrial fan and I don't think there are any good japanese industrial bands..nothing that could compare to Rammstein or Oomph! anyways....))
