Oh okay, thanks SO MUCH <3 heehee

edit: Oh sorry to bother you again, but I have another question haha..

My sister's name is Wu Pei Yi, but since there's no g sound, would thatmean we have the same name? LOL

haha no.. your name is Wu Pei Yin right?

ウ ペイイン

Wu Pei Yi would be

ウ ペイイ without the ン

it sounds like 'oo pay ee'

私は東方神起をだいすきです。

Is this written correctly?

Sorry, I haven't learned katakana yet and I don't like the conversion of hirigana into kanji when I can't read it, except for watashi and Dong Feng Shen Qi x]

no, should be 私は東方神起だいすきです。

you can also write だいすき as 大好き

私は東方神起が大好きです

So my friend and I are going to do a dialogue for class; I need to make my sentences sound smoother.

Like, I'll be asking him --> So, what college are you going to now? He'll reply. and I'll say, "Oh, I go there too." Then he'll ask me -> Where are you working? -> I'll reply -> He'll reply and say that's a great place to work -> Then he'll ask if I saw a movie -> I'll reply and etc.

I'm not sure how to make it connect more smoothly.

The sentences are easy but making them flow together is difficult.

^you didn't mention if it is suppose to be formal form or not, so here is the informal form. (this is how i talk to to my friend, at least)

you: いま、なんのがっこうにかよってるの?

him: xxx school.

you: えっ!わたしも!

him: えっそう? どこではたらいてるの?

you: xxx place.

him:ああ、いいところだよね。 ってさ、さいきん 'movie name' というえいがをみた?

put everythin in hiragana incase you can't read kanji. hope it helps.

Ohh hehe... i'm not sure what form. Sorry for my poor japanese.

It should go like this:

Me: "What college are you going to?"

Him: "I'm going to the University of Washington"

Me: "I'm going to the University of Washington too"

Him: "Where are you working?"

Me: "I'm working at starbucks coffee shop."

Him: "Starbucks is a good place."

Him: "Did you see xx movie?"

Me: "No, I didn't see it."

a: daigaku de nan desu ka?

b: university of washington daigaku desu.

a: watashi mo university of washington daigaku desu yo.

a: shigoto de doko ni arimasu ka?

b: starbucks kissaten arimasu.

b: starbucks kissaten ii desu.

b: xxx wa eiga o mimasu ka?

a: iie, mimasen.

Not sure >_< sorry. And as you see it's super choppy. Like there's really no flow to connect it. I wouldn't know where to put say like soredewa, tokorode, etc.

The original dialogue is this -->

A: B-san shibaraku desu. Ogenki desu ka?

B: Hai A-san okagesama de. A-san wa?

A: Hai watashi mo genki desu. B san ima isogashii desu ka?

B: Ima desu ka? Iie amari isogashiku arimasen ga...

A: Soredewa issho ni sono omise de shokuji o shimasen ka?

B: Ii desu nee! Soo shimashoo.

--> At the restaurant

A: Kono omise no tonkatsu wa totemo oishiin desu yo. Soreni amari takaku arimasen.

B: Soo desu ka. Watashi wa tonkatsu ga daisuku desu. Dakara sore o tabemasu. A-san wa?

A: Watashi mo tonkatsu o tabemasu. B-san nodo ga kawakimashita ka?

B: Ee kawakimashita. Biiro to mizu o nomimashoo ka?

A: Soo shimashoo. [to waitress] Sumisaen tonkatsu o futatsu to biiro to mizu o futatsu kudasai.

[insert above dialogue that i'm trying to translate into japanese]

A: Kyoo wa watashi ga gochisoo shimasu.

B: Iin desu ka?

A: Hai mochiron desu.

A: [to cashier] Ikura desu ka?

Cashier: roku sen go hyaku en desu.

A: Gochisoosama deshita.

B: A-san gochisoosama deshita. Totemo oshikatta desu.

What mel wrote is very good, you should use it.

However it looks like you have not learned informal speech yet, or how to use の・ん with questions with verbs, so I will make it more formal for you.

informal (what mel wrote)

you: いま、なんのがっこうにかよってるの?

him: xxx school.

you: えっ!わたしも!

him: えっそう? どこではたらいてるの?

you: xxx place.

him:ああ、いいところだよね。 ってさ、さいきん 'movie name' というえいがをみた?

formal (to fit the rest of the dialogue)

you: いま、なんのがっこうにかよっていますか?

him: xxx school

you: えっ!わたしも!!

him: えっそうですか?どこではたらいていますか?

you: xxx place

him: ああ、いいところですよね。ところで、さいきん'move name'というえいがをみましたか?

It's not really that natural because most people would use what mel wrote, but in a class these are things you must learn =P

learning a few new words never hurt anyone =P

but anyways just replace がっこう with だいがく and はたらいています with しごとしています

would it be corret to say, may i have (your) X? as:

X o kurete mo iidesuka?

May I have your what? And you mean like to keep permanently or just to borrow / use?

hmm say an object, like a book. to use.

Xを使ってもいいですか? x o tsukatte mo ii desu ka?

May I use X?

Xを借りてもいいですか? x o karite mo ii desu ka?

May I borrow X?

is more natural
