Since I am going to do an exchange to Japan, starting in March, I am expected to write a letter to my (potential) host family. The letter will be shown to different families who are interested in hosting me and they'll decide based on this letter.
I know there are different levels of politeness when speaking/writing Japanese and I was wondering if going with the -masu conjugation would be all right?
Hi, why does ryookai sounds like yokai? In anime, when soldiers say Ryookai, to me, it sounds like they drop the R and make only a one O sound (yokai). Do they drop the R on porpuse or is it just me not catching the sound. In google translate i can hear the R. I'm barely learnig Japanese (JfX book 1). Thanks for your time.
