Nice to meet you (meeting for the first time)

Where are we going?
Although there are some word that we will skip, since this is a thread for new starter, let us stick to the right grammar usage.
Watashi "wa" nihongo "ga" hanasemasen/hanasenai.
Watashi wa nihongo "wo" hanasu koto ga dekimasen.
We use "ga" for being able to do something(can etc).
Doko e iku?
Where are you going?
Doko ka e ikou.
Lets go somewhere
Iku = go
Ikou = Lets go
the usage is a little bit different.
I found this page from random search and it seems to be quite well designed for the use of beginner.
