What are you looking for on this site? Be specific about your motive/purpose, in terms of what you want to look for, in one or two sentences, even if you're unsure of / new to this. Explain at your best.
Friendship, Knowledge, To Broaden Horizons
We would like you to tell your Asian Male and/or your Black female friends about the site, would you help us find cool people who would support interracial interaction? Please explain.
How do you feel about having a complete Egotistical Wise Ass as a site Creator/Administrator??? ;)
I'll say it again - I'm not sure about the purpose of this question, but I dislike arrogance. From what I understand of this question, it's always best to have a liberal and open-minded administrator. Nothing more unattractive than a website that is lead by someone who is socially, psychologically and mentally biased. It rubs off on the entire website and makes it an unpleasant place to be.
Relationship Status (Choose One)
Are you Adult enough to handle a site with those who you are not in agreement with? Do you understand that you may be offended because you have a different perspective than someone else's and vice versa? Can you handle that friendships, situationships, and relationships don't always work out. Are you aware that this is the internet and not everyone is genuine? Finally, will you IMMEDIATELY read the READ ME (http://bwamu2.ning.com/page/faq-warnings) section of the site before beginning your adventure on Bwamu? Once you read it, type the last sentence into the answer for approval.
Yes V, I read the damn page...thank you

I have a good idea about mastering Japanese(Immersion Method). It is efficient and reasonable. It doesn't have to be painstaking if you are TRULY smart. I was STUPID with my English study and I have learnt it through my failure. I will let you know more little by little.
2.ALWAYS MEMORIZE!!--Never think about grammatical analysis for now. We can do it at times only to understand the structure of the language, NOT to acquire the virtual ability of its fluent speaker.
If you can agree with me, let's start from a basic level. Otherwise please feel free to ask me if you have any open question/disagreement.
We should understand the nature of our mind. Structural analysis is knowledge--conscious effort of understanding. You don't need this for now unless you want to become an academic linguist, right? What you want now is automatic, unconscious yet practical fluency of Japanese--different kind of knowledge. In order to gain this ability, FORGET GRAMMAR FOR NOW(we can do it later). JUST MEMORIZE LIKE A BABY.
1.オハヨウ。Good morning! 2.コンニチ-ハ。Good afternoon! 3.コンバン-ハ。Good evening! 4.キミ-イクツ？How old are you? 5.トシ-ハ-イクツ？How old are you? 6.ハタチ-ダ-ヨ。I am 20 years old. 7.コノ-ホン-イクラ？How much is this book? 8.ヒャクエン。It is Hyaku Yen. 9.ニホンゴ-ハ-カンタン。Japanese is easy. 10.殉教ジュンキョウ-ハ-ムズカシイ。Martyrdom is difficult.
This is the best website, not only for Kanji radicals but also for entire Kanji itself. If you click around everything, you will soon learn how to use it. The site shows "all stroke orders" but unfortunately it doesn't seem to show "a unit meaning of radicals."
Hiragana(平仮名) and katakana(片仮名) are easy but kanji(漢字) is not. Kanjis are originally pictographs(象形文字). Several bushu(部首) parts are assembled into a kanji and each bushu has its own meaning as a unit. Thus the various parts blend into a harmonious whole as a kanji to create a new meaning. It is a "very efficient and effective way" to master kanjis "by memorizing about 200 bushus first." Actually 100 busshus are good enough for daily life unless you want to become a kanji scholar. You will never regret if you act on my advice. And also you can save a lot of time. However Most Japanese teachers are so stupid that they don't adopt this learning method at their own kanji class. Beware of it!
