Minna-san!! Konnichiwa!! How are you to day? I hope your fine!!
You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" .
I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!!

The big day is just around the corner.
Your parents must be so proud, Rose.
Arent you excited?
No. Rose was decidedly not excited. The giddy anticipation she had once experienced had recently been invaded by an intermingling of doubts and insomnia, making excitement a far distant feeling. Every time she had slowed her thoughts enough to perhaps sleep, another worry would arrive to distract her. This was the day she should be looking forward to more than any other, but all she could feel was uncertainty. Her family, excluding Al, all seemed beyond jubilant about it. As each day passed, one more enthusiastic thought would somehow be turned into a panic inducing horror. The night before was the very worst she had experienced.
Around midnight Rose had fussed over whether she should wear her robes or not. She got out of bed to look them over, and decided that shed not be out of place wearing them once on the train. At two thirty-five she decid

(Starring Shining Armor and Princess Cadance)
During the night of the crescent moon, a single carriage left the gates of Canterlot, largest city and capital of the Kingdom of Equestria. Now, normally this would not be such a strange occurrence as many carriages seem to enter and exit the metropolis at will. However, this very carriage had something, or rather someponies, which were of great importance on that particular night. A while ago, the entire city was witness to one of the most important dates of the year; more important than perhaps Winter Wrap-Up or Hearth's Warming: the wedding of Captain Shining Armor and Princess Mi Amore Cadenza, (or Cadance, as she liked to be called). However, it had also been a day of crisis as hordes of demonic changelings from the deepest part of Tartarus laid siege to Canterlot. Their queen, Chrysalis, had trapped Cadence under the Royal Palace and assumed her form, deceiving Shining Armor and the entire populace. With the stal

The loud clicking sound of your heels on the hard floors of the hallway echoed through the building. Signs written in kanji were plastered on doors and walls, indicating numbers, upcoming events, and the occasional typical cheesy slogan that seemed to be ever present at any school, no matter the country. It seemed a mystery why they bothered with such things. It wasn't as if the positive and persuasive words had any affect on the real trouble makers of the bunch.
Your eyes scanned the room numbers, looking for the one you were supposed to arrive at, 112. Placing the numbers to fit the foreign script was no problem for your brain to handle. After all, you wouldn't have been much of a foreign language teacher if you couldn't speak the language you'd be translating from.

Prologue: Strange Awakening
Twilight Sparkle stirred in her slumber, her nightmares already starting to fade away as she neared consciousness. In time she opened her eyes and sat up with a yawn. She groggily rubbed the sleep from her eyes with the backs of her forefeet.
An unfamiliar bubbly voice called out from another room, "Rise and shine, buddy! You're the first one up, aside from me, of course. I'll bet you're really hungry and stuff; want some breakfast?"
Twilight was wide awake now. Who the hay was that? She surveyed her surroundings: cupboards filled with antique dishware lined the walls of the room. Warm late-morning sun filtered in through the windows, dappled by the trees outside. To her left were her friends Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Applejack, and Pinkie Pie, each sleeping on the floor with a pillow and a blanket like the ones she had. To her right laid
