My dream has always been to go to Japan, but, I have to admitt, with the issue of picking colleges and my graduation project this year, it's very hard to practice as I should. That's why I wanted to start this thread. By conversing with the other members of this site that know romaji, I can slowly improve my skills.

That being said, here are the rules:

1.)No cursing. I want to learn the fundamentals of the language, not the bad words. Bad words without communicating the right message is a head-banger.

2.)Your repartee in the conversation must be written in romaji. The hiragana or even katakana can be included for those who would like to see it, but not everyone has the resources to look up the kanji. Hiragana also accounts for 70% of the language, so it's more resourceful.

3.)Try including the tense of the verb. I want this to be as realistic an experience as possible. I'm sure you can understand why. I don't want to insult anyone by not being polite or not polite enough.

4.)Always include your translation.

Rules being posted, I'll begin.

Konichiwa! (Sadly, that's all I can think of right now!)
