So I do my new tests and my drills but you have me do questions like fill in the blank... Okay?

___ Wa Genki Desu Ka! Is the fill in .. and I have Jon San and some others but I also have watashi ...

 

the other line is ee... genki desu!

 

So without being told that it was suppose it was suppose to be John how in the hell am I suppose to know its freakn

JOHN SAN! Really ... cmon guys the deeper I get into Nihongo Master the more you are pissing me

off with you answers... and one other thing.. The telephone number drills... WTF on that too there

is a number where you completely cut off the 6 at the end the number... I can't hear it at all!

 

So if you re-do these numbers. SAY the numbers, otherwise tell us how to hear

short cut sayings for numbers because that pissed me off! Please review the

video below. This was me replaying that number over and over and over again

and then finally flipped my freakn lid!

Hi!  First of all, to answer the fill in the blank question, you need to notice that there is KA at the end of the sentence.  Ka makes a question sentence, so you can know that the speaker is asking if somebody else he/she is fine. 

Could you tell me which drill you had trouble with?  I'm trying to enhance the beginners' lessons, so I can take a look at the drill.  If the recording is not good, I can record it again.  Thank you for your question, and hope this helps!

Thanks... so how would it be to ask if I'm doing fine... As in, am I doing good or fine with speaking Japanese (or something similar)... Also I think it was the number 11-###-9876 I believe was something like this. But when I heard the speech for this number the 6 was totally cut off I listened to it over and over with my wife but we couldn't really hear it. So I guess the question is now, is it there and if it is, is it shortened for some reason? Thanks

Griffithさん、if you want to ask somebody if "you" are doing OK, you could say わたしはげんきですか?This is grammatically OK, but just sounds weird; The only situation that I want ask somebody if I'm doing OK is when I visit a doctor. In that case, I would use the word Daijobu (だいじょうぶ). Like this, わたしは、だいじょうぶですか。(Watashi ha daijobu desuka?) The number drill, I need to look into it. I can find the drill easily if I made it, but I didn't make the beginners' lesson&drills, so it may take a while, but I'll do so. Thank you again for your question!

I still cannot find the drill that you mentioned; There is a drill for telephone # "I'm Rich! I Think," but it doesn't have that kind of question. Could you tell me the name of the drill if you still can find it? Thank you!

I found the teleohone # drill that you're talking about.  I would say that the recording is just fine;; 

The speaker could slow down a little bit since this drill is for beginners, but she is a native speaker of Japanese and her pronunciation is good. 

You're having trouble listening to #6, right?  It is possible that you (and your ears) are trying to catch the "R" sound in English.  We don't have any "R" or "L" sounds in Japanese.  "RA" "RI" "RU" "RE" "RO" in Japanese sound very different from the "R" sound in English.  I would recommend you to listen to the recordings in the Lesson ”Let's Learn R Hiragana ら to ろ" again and again so that you can get used to the "R" in Japanese.  Hope this helps!

I've been familiar with the R/L sounds... I just can't for the life of me hear it when she goes over it on the end of the phone number. Thanks for checking into that though I appreciate it!
