No one from Bulgaria :) Well i'm from Bulgaria

Do you know where is that ?? I really doubt about it . Bulgaria is famous in Japan whit one of our best football players Hristo Stoickov and our milk ( yoghurt ) products :) Man today i ate a lot of yoghurt 😄

it was very funny for me to hear what common people in japan think about bulgarians. It's fun to hear such funny things

Anyway i'm a half a bulgarian and a half a nigerian :)


cheers from sofia 🙂

I'm from Bulgaria too and I'm mixed with Vietnamese. :)

すごい、じゃはじめましてジョーセプさん。日本語の勉強はどうしましたか?👍

Nice to meet you too. Unfortunately I had to use Google translate right now to read that :)

I begun studying Japanese last month. I have always wanted to learn but I just never got real about it til recently. Its very exciting (^_^)

I can now speak English and Norwegian (not 100% fluent, but quite well), and I am working on Japanese and Russian (I took Russian in college so I decided to work on that again since I can already pronounce and read.

Any suggestions for learning Japanese? I have just been using Pimsleur right now, but I just picked up "Japanese from Zero! Book 1"

I've studied in a school for 2 and half months.. it was worth it, though.. xD it was soooo gooooood as a foundation for learning.. By now, I have been learning by chatting or making friends with someone who is good in japanese... I don't wish to be 100% fluent either, I just want to be not out of this world if ever I will be blessed enough for a Japan residency.. xD じゃ、頑張ってください!:D

Hi!
I'm from Singapore but currently I'm studying in Australia :) I hope to learn as much as I can through this forum. Actually it's currently exam period, but unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you see it) I started to get back my interest in Japanese recently and have been immersing myself in studying the language -.- I'm hopeless.

I've actually studied the language for about 5 yrs give or take but I can say, I still suck at the language because I didn't study hard enough. So now I'm starting from the beginning...

はじめまして!!! bloodsinger/mei と言います。どうぞよろしくおねがいします。皆一緒に頑張るね。

Yeah... I know it sucks but I'm working on it haha!!! Basics first ^^

Lets see, no giant tower or Cyclonian Skyframes which would make this Australia, Earth.

On a chat room i was on a girl said she liked Australians because we apparently have sexy voices, i know that defiantly is not me, one of the many reasons why i was bullied in high school was because of how i talked so when reading anything i type, don't imagine a Huge Ackman's or Paul Hogan's voice
