Hope this clarifies.

「せわしい」+「ない」で成り立っています。

「ない」というと「〜ない」と否定を表す言葉をイメージしますが、この場合の「ない」は強調を表します。
ですので、「せわしない」は「忙しくない」という意味ではなく、「忙しいこと」を強調していることになります。
Wow super cheem on the usage of this.

Are there any Japanese schools to recommend which accepts the use of Skillsfuture credits?

Conference meetings in Japanese

Hi all,

I'd be jumping into a conference meeting and I'm wondering if things are said differently as compared to a face to face meeting.

I know that when we first meet a person, we say "初めまして。XXXと申します。よろしくお願いします。" But what if it's meeting the person first time during a conference call. Does it still apply the same way?

Are there any other things to take note of that may be different? Thank you!

Yup, we do have dealings with them already but because no one speaks Japanese on my side, so they usually communicate in English.

Does your relative good in computer / internet, and also can read Chinese traditional characters?

I'm asking this, because I'm also learning Japanese in Chinese language.

However, I'm learning Japanese with a Taiwanese teacher.

He has online courses, from beginning up to N1 level.

I bought the course, and whenever I want to learn, I just opened the course and learn. Anytime, even midnight too.

And no, the course bought will not expire. If I bought last year, I still can learn the course this year or next year.

I'm learning from him because:

1. I couldn't find learning Japanese course in Chinese language over here in Singapore.
2. The course is much cheaper as compared to here (about 30% - 50% cheaper).
3. I can learn anytime I want.
4. He teaches a lot of things which typical textbook doesn't teach.

Btw, sometimes he might also do FB live, have a few questions asked by students, and explained the questions and why the answer is this and not that.... This is usually on Sunday nights, 9 pm.

Oh ya, currently he also has published 4 learning Japanese books, and seems like 2 more are also confirmed to be published.

Hi, do u mind pm me for the details on website etc? Thanks!

Took their N2 prep class last year. Thankfully passed. So they're definitely good. I used to attend regularly 10 years ago for their pre advanced and also JLPT 3 Prep. Only thing is their classes aren't cheap..
