VietNam no gunjin datta toki, ni kai itta koto ga aru. Sore ato, mata san kai itta koto ga aru. Tokyo no Setagayaku ga yoku shite imasu. Ainku ga, atchi ni sunde imasen deshita. Hi, I'm Lou. Because my studies need some kind of a boost, I've opened the weekly Scripps Ranch meeting. If you have time on Wednesdays, please join in! While being a soldier in Vietnam, I visited Tokyo twice. After that, I went back three more times. I knew Setagayaku pretty well. It's a shame, but I never lived there.
Ma, ne! Boku no Nihongo no hoo hoo o hanasoo. Daigaku kara, sotsugyoo shita mae ni, go-gaku to kokubun-gaku o yoku benkyoo shita n desu. Jissei wa, CSULB kara, Japanese language no "minor" o totta. Sono choodo koro, jikoryuu de benkyoo shimashita. Well! I'll explain. Before graduating from CSULB, I studied Japanese language and culture. In fact, I received a minor in the language. Since that time, I just studied on my own.
Ara! Joodan desu ka? Shikashi, tsuma to mago ga ippai motte imasu. What! Is that a joke? However, my wife and grandkids have a bunch.
Minna san, konnichi wa. "Lou" desu. Boku no gogaku wa, nanika chooyaku ga hitsuyoo da kara, Scripps Ranch no Nihongo no kaigi o maishu ni, hirakitatta n desu. Suiyoobi ni, ohima ga attara, doozo, sanka shite kudasai. (see below for translations)
