1. The language I decided to study in college.

2. A fun language to learn.

It is made up of 3 alphabets. Hiragana, 46 symbols which each represent a different sound; Katakana, 46 different symbols which represent the exact same sounds as hiragana; and Kanji, thousands of symbols which represent entire words or ideas.

Japanese written using the english alphabet is called romaji.
Takeshi-san no senmon wa nihongo desu ka?

Yes, that's right.

Pedro: Those Japanese are intelligent. The Japanese don't give people trouble. They don't have time for crime. If a Japanese person looks at the merchandise or money while others don't look, they still don't steal, otherwise, they bring shame to their families. You can even walk the streets in the wee hours of the night in Japan and leave your door open. These Japanese people are intelligent. They go to school six days a week (not Sunday). They have 4 hours of homework each day. My friend is Japanese.
Andy: Really, those Japanese people know how to live their lives. No wonder the Japanese stay out of trouble.
Pedro: My Japanese friends often complains about why those American morons bombed Japan twice, when there was another way to end WWII.

Something from Japan or the actual language. The easiest way to tell the difference from Japanese and another attepmt to be smart is that Japanese always has a consonant followed by a vowel. there are never double consonants but there are cvv clusters in the language. Also R's sound like L's, and most words from english have a U on the end if it ends with a consanent.
Riku Yosaka is a real japanese name
Jonetisame Kuryama Isn't
Ramu sounds like Lamu and Rabu is Love
