Nan nen tookyoo no disuniirando hatarakimashite ka?

Yes, I'm taking Japanese. In college. Well, not now, since I'm working on my degree coursework, but I used to speak semi-fluently. I lose it since I don't use it.

Languages I know:

American English
British English
Castillian Spanish
Latin American Spanish
French
Canadian French
Italian
Japanese
Mandarin Chinese
German
Klingon
and, recently, Simlish

Occasionally, I use it to call Sajin an idiot.

I'm about to finish my first semester of Japanese here at college. So I know a little bit here and there. I've also picked up a few things from going to Japan twice.

I honestly don't think many here know much ... VGFreak should probably know a great deal though.

Ja, ich kann auch Deutsch sprechen, aber nicht so gut wie Englisch, und spreche ich Japanisch ber scheulich....

(Ya, I can speak german as well, but not as good as English, and my Japanese is crap.)

Oh, and Zabusa? I don't know what you asked ^.^;

I know you asked "What do you feel about/what are your thoughts on Tokyo's ________?"

That's all I could pick up on that....

Incorrect.

How many years have you worked for Tokyo Disneyland?

We needed to ask that to employees when I worked at Disneyland for their proper purchasing discount. That was back when I was semi-fluent. I had multiple opportunities to practice.

Now, I'm very rusty, and can really only pick up on spoken Japanese if it's not spoken too quickly. My German is totally gone, but I can still read it. Mandarin is limited to about five words.

Actually, Zabuza that also is incorrect. If you want to say that it would be better to say it like this:

Dono gurai NAME-san wa TOKYO DISNEYLAND ni tsutometemasu ka?

ǂ̂炢w͓fBYj[hɋ΂߂Ă܂H

Yeah I'm getting okay in the language, it helps that I sometimes have someone to talk to to help me along and correct my mistakes. I have been studying for over 2 1/2 years now. If you would like to converse more, please let me know, I would be happy to help you.

Edit: Correction in spelling.

Extremely polite, yes, but I needed the most basic that I could accomplish, and the sentence was as provided by my college Japanese instructor (whom is native Japanese). I understand there are different dialects, but she gave myself and a friend this question as to facilitate, at best, a numerical answer out of Tokyo Disneyland employees.

Since, by custom in the US, even with Disneyland employees, we don't learn their names prior to a business transaction such as purchasing goods and services at the stores. Therefore, your sentence, while better suited for the culture, is useless in my situation.

Still, you're better suited speaking/practicing with VGFreak than anybody else. While I am studying linguistics, I focus more on the structure and history of the language than actually communicating with it...for now.

But, if you need help in any of the other languages...

Doumo arigatou gozaimasu! My nihongo is kinda bad, so it's hard to pick up on things for me... But I CAN read and write it! Alot of people at school are like, "You can speak Chinese??"

Well, yeah. I bet they ask if you know martial arts as well.

I, luckily, do not have the Mexican generalization going. And I don't care what happens to the immigrant thingies. As long as they don't protest on the freeway again, I'm fine.

Ich spreche Deutch, aber nicht sehr gut. Yo hablo espaol un pequito, pero es no muy bueno... pero es mejor que mi alemn. (I speak German, but not so good. I speak Spanish a little, but it's not very good... but it's better than my German.)

I know a few phrases in Japanese, maybe two words of Mandarin and Cantanese... and I can count to ten in Korean. That is pretty much my extent of languages. Oh, and I know phrases in Elvish too.

I know some Sm'algyax. I've just been taking the course for years in school. (Yet forget everything over summer =/)

Language of the Tsimshian? Ki'itsgu da awaa niksuniiskw. (I point towards the window). I'd do some other kind of words, but some letters of our alphabet just happen to not be possible on a computer without downloading a specific font.

What I really want to learn however, is German. I know nothing yet, but will learn sometime.

I'm taking French now, going to learn Japenese first chance I get, and I also plan on learning at least the basics of:

Spanish
German
Mandarin




And Sajin, he said "I speak German very well, Mr. Gorotto! Thanks!"

Yeah, I know spatterings of tons of languages. But, I'm only 14. Don't expect me to speak anything fluently.
