planning on picking up some japanese beginner, I stay near the east and there's hougang school nearby.

but know there are many more, ikoma/bunka/tomo/JCS. which would you guys recommend that is focused on the fundamental conversational rather than just teaching you how to pass an exam?

Hi guys,

would like to check with senpai tachi, is there any Japanese school providing intensive class? I have made a research but it seems that none of them provide full day daily course...

I recommend Ikoma. Had tried Bunka but didnt quite like it.
School fees is more expensive but you get what you paid for I feel.

Hi all,

Not sure if this is appropriate but I just chanced upon a Japanese voice mail sent by an acquaintance of mine.

Would any of you kind soul spare a minute to translate this for my keepsake?

Thanks a lot

words in [] denotes unclear pronunciation, but sounds like it
words in () denotes my comments, just in case other thought I misheard/miswrote the text

This is what i heard:
"de-to deattara mai nichi sugoku tanoshi. sore ni mai nichi [yomi] ni katte ganbatteru ["chanto" or "chunto"] te mite itsumo aishiteru yo. Hontoni deatte tomotachi ni narite(should be "natte" te form of "naru") koko kara ureshi desu. kore kara zutto nakayoshi de itte ne. ["Jesus" sutekinai chirazu] wo sugosemasu youni onegaishimasu. sore mo benkyou mo ganbatte... [de] yasumi toka tanoshimishite kudasai!"


My attempt in translation. Do let me know if you spot any mistake

1)
de-to deattara mai nichi sugoku tanoshi
=>Since the date, everyday have been very fun.

2)
sore ni mai nichi [yomi] ni katte ganbatteru ["chanto" or "chunto"] te mite itsumo aishiteru yo
=>I loved that everyday you put in effort to (do [yomi] ni katte)


3)
Hontoni deatte tomotachi ni narite(should be "natte" te form of "naru") koko kara ureshi desu.
=>Really/Very happy to have met and befriended you

4)
kore kara zutto nakayoshi de itte ne.
=>We're going to be good friends from now on, yeah?

5)
["Jesus" sutekinai(should be setukina) chirazu] wo sugosemasu youni onegaishimasu
(I am really guessing this one) I wish you ... Jesus's wonderful...

6)
sore mo benkyou mo ganbatte... [de] yasumi toka tanoshimishite kudasai!"
Also, do well in your studies... and enjoy your holidays/rest

Hi there, thanks a lot. Really appreciate it.

She wasn’t a native speaker so I figured she might not sound coherent. Anyway she calls me ‘Jay’ I guess that explains the part about ‘jesus’ hahaha.

Thanks again!
