"Where is the cold medicine?"
I am Japanese . " doko ni arimasu ka " is a little more polite than " dokodesu ka " . But in everyday conversation , there is no problem in using either . We feel happy if you speak positively Japanese . I'll do my best to study languages like you do ! By the way , is my English correct ? Bye .
Thank you for clarifying that. Your English is great, except for your use of the adverb "positively," which is now pretty rare, and is only used to amplify an adjective, e.g. "I am positively delighted to hear that." You probably mean something like "We feel very happy if you speak Japanese" or "We feel happy if you speak any Japanese" or "We feel very happy if you speak Japanese at all." Thank you again for your help.
Absolutely *(for a translation with enough context, but not a learning exercise with no context).
You'd be amazed how much native Japanese speakers will leave to context, especially in casual speech. Unfortunately for us learners, the point is that, being native speakers, they already know what it is they're leaving out and where it should have gone.
