はじめまして。
In hindsight it was a bad idea to make my nick what it is... does anyone know how to type the small ュ character?

Some of you will know me as Stuart from the beginner's classes.

I like studying japanese bounce , watching movies (incl. kung fu, occasional animé), sometimes playing guitar, listening to music... usual stuff. Hiking, gym and touristy stuff.

Ummm yeah.

Ello. cat

Welcome to the boards. We like studying Japanese, too. Razz You should try your hand at shiritori or let us know what you're doing right now in the Japanese Chat page.

Oh! And to type a small ュ character, or any of the vowels and compound character halves, just type x on your keyboard and then the character. For example, xa xai xu xe xo changes あいうえお into ぁぃぅぇぉ and やゆよ into ゃゅょ.

edit: And typing "du" gives you a づ. Which is a helpful thing to know when you're using smart.fm and it asks you to type つづける in diction, while you're being timed, and you keep trying and making mistakes and thus lowering your proficiency score. Aaaaaah my tragic life!!!!!! Sad Crying or Very sad

ステュさん, I read your post in Beginner's Chat. Have you heard of rikaichan? If you haven't, I think it could help you a lot.

It's pretty useful. If there are items of vocab you don't know in the beginner's chat, you can enable rikaichan and then (9/10) find out what they mean. Of course, this won't help with the grammar, but that's why you're taking lessons. Razz
