Most of you that know my Aspen know that she has been taking Japanese since she was 12. It all started with a love of Pokemon and the Neopets and then Anime and Manga...on and on... She is in her last Japanese class in college now and speaks it quite well. Here is a portion of her midterm dialog along with her best friend and roommate Ash and his sister Britany. It is translated below so you can follow along :) Enjoy!
Aspen: Come on in!
Britany: Good Morning!
Ash: We're looking for an apartment.
Aspen: Good morning, oh, is that so? We have some available. What kind of apartment do you want to rent?
Ash: A one bedroom should be good.
Aspen: We have one available, would you like a tour?
Britany: Oh, right now?
Aspen: This is the apartment, all of the rooms are in western style. But it's not furnished. This apartment is new, and convenient!
Britany; Oh, is that so? How much is the rent?
Aspen: 700 dollars.
Ash: Before us, who lived here?
Aspen: Last month Haruko lived here, but she killed a man with a big knife. There was lots and lots of blood all over the bedroom.
Britany: Ohhh, is it okay to bring animals?
Ash: Oh. Really.....
