supa- boringu
supa- fan

Or that wasn't what you were quite looking for?
(Be specific here. What's the context, cause I can think of 3-4 ways in tons of slang uses in different accents to translate those sentences)

@ Solafighter - Those are all just sound words. They aren't saying anything.

It's pretty much like what Mystique wrote, but put an extension on the U sound in supa and probably extend the O in boringu.

Well they're not going to quite understand long sentences or words, if we're on about ages 3 and under

Still not sure what you're after but basic translations anyways are so:
boring = tsumaranai
fun = tanoshii or omoshiroi

Very:
totemo (formal)
sugoku (casual)
chou (slang)
mecha (reeeally slang, ignore this, only writing for fun lol)

Or simply stick with 'japlish'
If it's a baby, then just stressing and raising your voice on the word 'tanoshii' would be enough too.

A baby:



Lemuel. We plan to speak to him in English and Japanese, and I'm trying to learn enough Japanese to chat with him, teach him code (saying he has unko-nyo instead of poop, etc).

And thanks, Mystique

Ohhh, so that's your plan. Learning when you're young is the best so good luck with that.

Yeah. His mother speaks fluently, and I want to know enough to kind of keep the atmosphere up at home. It'll help me with his grandmother and extended family as well.

Urusai, urusei, urusanai
what could means this words?
My phonetic is not the best pardon me
"Urusai" is an adjective, it means "loud, noisy". Japanese, when they're lazy or angry, like to take "ai" endings and change them to "ei", so urusai becomes urusei. i haven't really heard of urusanai or wakamashi. sorry.

I think he may have made some mistake ( in tipping or listening) urusanai is most likely to be yurusanai and wakamashi to be yakamashi.

This is what I want to say in Japanese: I forgot my umbrella in the classroom yesterday.

My roommate who is a Japanese student from Japan studying here at SFSU wrote for me: Watashi wa kasa o kino kurasuruumu ni wasuremashita.

Is this correct? If so it seems to be conflicting with what I'm being taught in Japanese 101 right now. Currently they're teaching us to such a sentence in this type of form: Watashi wa kino kurasuruumu de kasa o wasuremashita.

Which is correct or is there a better way of saying it?

It's kinda like saying:

I left my umbrella in the classroom yesterday.
Yesterday, in the classroom, i left my umbrella.
Yesterday, i left my umbrella in the classroom.

There are various ways of saying it as well as cause it's japanese, they'll be different politeness levels and registers, depening on who you're talking to.
Also as you advance in the language, you'll find you'll learn more grammar that expresses emotion, in this case it'd be one to express 'regret' - so methinks the way your friend wrote it, is probably verbally spoken as such but the way you learnt it is 'clearer' and nicer japanese, so at basic level i'd stick with that personally.

Typically a convo between friends may go like...
A: shimatta! kinou, kasa wo wasurechatta.
B: doko de?
A: kurasuruumu de.


(actually, because 'wasuru' (to forget) is an abstract verb alike 'wakaru' - would it be 'ni' or 'de' to translate as 'at' - that's a basic grammar 101 i've personally forgotten myself, voices in my head tell me it's 'ni' though....)

Oh oh, very clear. So would this be right "Watashi wa kino kurasuruumu de kasa o wasuremashita" or "Watashi wa kino kurasuruumu ni kasa o wasuremasu"?

yeah those sentences are fine. It's just for second one the meaning is I will forget my umbrella in the classroom (which sounds weird and why would you say/do that)

the verb is wasureru.

I will forget/I forget my umbrella in the classroom yesterday, in fact.

i.e. an incorrect sentence.

#1 is fine.
