Re: useful Japanese phrases

I often get representitives from Daiichi Pharmaceutical visiting my company here in the UK, next time I get the opportunity I'll say..

sumimasen boku no atama no ue ni usagi ga iru no shitteru nante baka mitai..

すみません ぼくの頭の上にウサギがいるの

And then watch them look at each other thinking

LOL

Regards

Re: useful Japanese phrases

ok, it's just not right to do that to a poor, defenseless, little rabbit.

Not right at all...

Re: useful Japanese phrases

Hey all Im seeing these really cool phrases....It leads me to direct my question to you all.
I really love the Japanese culture, and have wanted to learn the language, but I am having no success in finding a school here in Texas that teaches Japanese.

"Where can I go, to learn functional Japanese"? I learned spanish and am still learning of course, but that is because you can find many people in the world who speak spanish. I am afraid that many of the "learn Japanese quickly" tapes will teach what I call fake Japanese. Like some of the learn spanish tapes, it is not realistic spanish.

Can anyone lead me?

Arigato!
Jjo

Re: useful Japanese phrases

"OW SENSEI PLEASE DON'T PULL ON MY BEARD AGAIN, DESPITE THE FACT THAT YOU MAY THINK IT MAKES ME LOOK AMISH IT REALLY HURTS WHEN IT GETS PULLED"

this one is kinda urgent
