I'll try again....(no C for me I presume?)<br><br><br><br>
Could it be that they judge your english more strict on grammar rules and style because it is your first language?

Also, they're looking for different skills in each class. In Japanese, they may be looking at your ability to form sentence structures and hold small conversations; in English you are expected to write coherent essays, analyze literature, pass stupid state-mandated tests, write under time constraints, etc.<br><br><br><br>

Ok thats a bit confusing Michael san means me and kudasai means please but I don't think thats a japanese sentance because there is no "wa" to go after the subject of the sentance. I'm the best at japanese in my class everyone else is crummy at it but me. I feel special <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Ha ha, Christy13--I'm a grammar nazi and spelling freak as well! And, my real name is Christi...think it has something to do with our names? LOL.<br><br><br><br>
By any chance, are you angered by improper use of punctuation?

You ain't supposta yuse "-san" on the end of your own name.....<br><br>
That would come across as extremely vain and incorrect in the eyes of the japanese. (but you prolly know that already).

Sometimes, though I also make mistakes. A few pet peeves of mine are the misuse of homonyms (i.e. your/you're), misuse of apostrophes (i.e. apostrophe's), and misspellings. I have to fight myself not to leave guestbook entries on blogs where there's a misspelling. That's no way to make friends. I'm also way too easily entertained by a dictionary.
