私はマックスです。僕は19歳のオランダ人の学生です。 俺の夢は日本語を話すできるのがです。毎日 少しを学ぶことを試みる。しかし、それはとても難しいです、多くの日本語文字がありますので。幸いに、既にひらがなとカタカナを知っている。初挑戦はすべての常用漢字を学習している。
I’m Max. I am a student of Dutch 19-year-old. My dream is to be able to speak Japanese. And try to learn a little bit every day. However, it is very difficult, because there is a lot of Japanese characters. Fortunately, I know the katakana and hiragana already. First challenge is to learn the all the (common-use) kanji.”
I wrote this yesterday night just before going to bed but I couldn’t be bothered to polish it and post it until today. First of all, it gave me a clear impression of how much Japanese I am able to produce so far! That also turned out to be more encouraging than I thought. Lastly, of course, I had to look up and new learn words and structures:
試みる [ こころ▪みる ] = to try
[ 初 ] 挑戦 = [ はつ ] ちょう▪せん = [first] challenge / attempt
adding – ので at the end of the phrase makes it causal. e.g. 多くをあるので would translate to “because there are a lot” or “since there is a lot”.
Additinionally, for the sake of not repeating myself, I used different words for ‘me,myself,I’ as you can see, respectively 私、僕、俺、which I hope to have used correctly :S
PS. Some kanji may be hard to read with my current font. just zoom in- and out by holding the Ctrl-button and scrolling up and down with the mousewheel 😉
