Persona wrote:Hmm so the ha (which is pronounced as wa) is "am" or "'m"? So if I said "I suck", it would be "ore -insert suck word-" correct?
The thing that comes before wa is supposed to highlight the topic of the sentence, so in ore wa dekai, ore is the topic of the sentence, like *I* am big.
As for ore no ga, what part of it makes it "mine" and "is"?
The no particle indicates possession, so ore no is literally "mine". ga marks the topic of the sentence as well. I don't really want to get into the whole "wa versus ga" debate (mainly because, to be plainly honest, I know when you should use wa and when you should use ga, but that's understanding that's gotten from hearing/reading Japanese over a long period of time as opposed to a formulaic understanding).
As for Simon, for some reason Konami writes Simon as シモン. So I guess their spelling is pronounced as Shimon? Because the english version is Simon.
Oh and is it normal that you can't remember some letters unless you see them? Let say if you tell me to write up the alphabet, I may be missing some of them because I can't imagine them but if I see them in say, a book, I would know what it is.
Yeah that happens to me too, don't worry about it. Hell it'll only get worse once you start learning Kanji. I've lost track of the amount of times where I go "Wait, how do I write the lower right portion of this character.....?"
Also I've been reviewing the letters everyday until I can get them (hira and kana) 100% of the time. Is there any site that teaches how to start putting simple sentences together?
I can't think of any off-hand, mainly because I didn't search for them
Reading manga/watching anime with subtitles is a good way to start though. Short, commonly repeated phrases will stick themselves into your head. Examples of this might be... "koko desu ka?" or "Asobi wa owari da!".... you know what I mean.
