    Haven't figured out how to get Japanese characters to work on Vista yet, but youbai = midnight mystery sex!

    連写(れんしゃ) photocopying two or more pages onto one page.

    I hate it when people adjust the photocopier (or the computer) and don't change it back afterwards, but hey, I learned a new word!

    予習 (よしゅう)

    It means the same thing as 準備, but it is used within the context of preparing for a class. I started taking Japanese lessons, and she asked me 予習しといてください by reading the next chapter so I'm ready to discuss it.

    Can 予習 be used for the teacher preparing for the lesson as well? Or just for the student?

    I believe it works both ways.

    Sweet, so that's 予習、準備、 and 仕度 for preparation. At least I learned recently that fishing and (spare) change use the same kanji. :P

    I've only seen or heard it used for what the students do, which makes sense. It's 予め [あらかじめ, "beforehand, pre-"] and 習う [ならう, "learn"].

    There's also 用意 (ようい) which means preparation!
    E.g., 用意・・・スタート!!
