Today we had some Japanese visitors and learned some basic Japanese language.
Can you write [with correct spelling] some of the phrases you learned today?
If you have questions about Japan ask them here, but be mindful of netiquette and good manners.

Watashi no namae (name) Desu. Means, my name is, and I remember some of those symbols aswell, but I obviously can't write them here!

Hi, My name is Alex and I go to Te Awamutu Intermediate. At the moment, we have a Japanese teacher at our school and we have Japanese this afternoon. I know how to ask what your phone number is and that sort of stuff but I have forgotten!
Could you visit my blog? The address is Maybe you could get some of your students to comment on my blog and then we could be blogging buddies.

I have been a bit slack with my comments lately so hopefully you will reply.

Unfortunately, I wasn't here for the Japanese lesson but it sounds very interesting. By 'netiquette' don't you mean etiquette?
Until next time...

Ohayo means GOOD MORNING. Konichiwa means hello.
The others from Little Kiwi is right.
Also, (sorry for spelling) 'what is your name?' is namaewa nandesuka?
