    Default Hows this soudnd?

    Ima, gonin ga imasu kedo, mo hito onegaishimasu! Isshoni, takusan geemu o shitai yo! ESS kurabu wa meccha tanoshimi...kimasu!

    I have to make a speech about ESS club next hour to the first year students. Other than a greeting, that's about all I have so far, would like to know if it sounds good but don't want to ask another teacher to edit it.

    Anything else I can add to it?

    I would suggest just using real simple english for your speech if you think about it the ones that would want to join have some understanding of the language and would be excited to actually hear something that they might know.

    What level school is this? It's not very good, but it sounds kind of cute so maybe it can work for JHS, I'd definitely brush it up if you're in SHS tho.

    I'm not sure if I would suggest using English unless you're at a high-academic school.

    put "kantan" in front of "geemu". Maybe combine that with "tanoshimashou"

    End it with "Zehi kite kudasai!"

    Maybe it's different from your school, but I know that my kids had the idea that in order to join ESS, they have to have good English, they were really all nervous about joining at first since their English is really bad. The idea is just keep focusing that ESS is about having fun with English, and anyone can join and have fun.

    This may be different in a high academic level, where the purpose is doing competitions and you need a high English ability. I get the feeling that the OPs situation isn't like that, though.

    thanks guys, it went well.

    PS yes I can read hiragana and katakana, but its a lot faster to just type romaji. Also can read a fair bit of kanji too.

    I think it's faster to type in Japanese, and saves the headache of trying to decipher romanji characters. Ah well...

    Can you write them, though?

    hiragana and katakana, yes. typing kanji, sure. writing by hand? maybe 1/3-1/2 of what I know.

    I intentionally wrote like that because godDAMN romaji is hard to read when you already know what words to "expect." It gets harder when dealing with unexpected vocabulary. Just like when my (soon-to-not-be-probably) Japanese tutor gets flustered on Skype, she starts typing to me in pure hiragana even though that's even harder for me to decipher than just throwing in some kanji that I might be able to at least understand.

    Yeah, reading romaji is such a pain in the ass.
