Ohayo Gozaimasu, Lenny!

I know I botched up the spelling, but I'm hoping I impressed you anyway


I'm impressed...that's more than I knew when I first got here.

Ther first phrase I learned was "O'toiday wa doku desu ka?" (where the toilet>)

Send was, "Beeru kudasai" (Beer Please)

Yep...you see where my priorities were :-)

My biggest problem now is that is I say something in Japanese, they assume I'm 110% fluent and rattle of phrases faster than a speeding bullet train, so I end up using english half the time.

The other problem I have is that my mind will through words from the 3 years of German I took year ago. When I'm trying to answer, I have to stop myself from speaking in a form of broken english/german/japanese.
