Okay...I'm writing a farewell card to my teacher since she is moving to a diff school all the way in coachella valley...

Things is I was hoping someone could tell me how to say:

"It has been a pleasure knowing you and you will be missed dearly. I'm sad to see you go!!"

in Japanese...


And to think I used to speak Japanese when I was a little kid. ...How dreadful.....

I'm sorry Sephora, but I have no idea. Stuff like this is reeeeeally difficult, because the appropriate response depends on how close you two are. I'd suggest trying the translator on Dictionary.com, but double-checking the kanji beforehand (whatever you do, don't use 'anata' for you or he/she will go like this -> .....learned that one the hard way.........) Sorry I can't be of more help.

You're actually not the first to tell me not to use anata...no clue why though, but I used to say it as a kid a lot ...I thought it was a cuss word.

Well we're close, not the usual teacher-student relationship...we talk to each other kinda more like friends I guess.

But thanks grem, I'll check to see what that translator thing says...

I dont remember any Kanji anymore

Why don't you just ask someone at school?

Unfortunately I cannot locate a fluent Japanese speaker at school other than my teacher...and I'm running out of Asians to harass about it ( there's not much of us to start ) ...so I thought why not post?

Sephora_Socialite, I'm sure this is all right.

あなたと出逢えて本当に良かったと思っています。今後は相当寂しくなりそう。あなたと離れるな んて悲しい。

if you write that in the Roman alphabet:

It has been a pleasure knowing you → anata to deaete yokata desu
and you will be missed dearly → korekarawa hontoni sabishiku narisou
I'm sad to see you go → anata to hanareru nante kanashii
