It's rather difficult to understand the sentence without kanji LOL
The only parts I can make out are "With your Japanese ability......What do you want to do."
Perhaps someone else could help or if you have the kanji I could give it a try.

I have the worksheet but I can't seem to find a place that can convert parts of the sentence into kanji.

Well you could take a picture of it.
If you have a cellphone you can download google translate and with that you're able to write the kanji as you see it.
On the mobile version as well there's an option for you to upload an image and have it convert the kanji into text.
Hope that helps.

Is it possible that you're misreading the sen bit? 先 when it's not in a combination it's usually read as さき (saki). Also, is the お meant to be を?

I'd suggest you take a picture of the worksheet and post it here, maybe it's easier to understand in context.

Also, wow, I didn't know we had this thread!

Can someone please help me? My 4th Year Japanese class is reading and translating a book called Tegami by Higashino Keigo. I can't make heads or tails of it for the life of me, and I have to summarize pages 74-84 by 1:00 PM this Friday, before class, and it takes me a whole half hour just to translate one page, and even then I can't understand what's going on. I have a PDF file of some pages that my teacher emailed me if anyone wants to look at those.

Alright, I'm trying to learn because I love japan.

Ai - means love
kissu shite - kiss me
Konnichiwa - Means hello
Ohayou - means 'good morning'
Gomen'nasai - means 'sorry'
Arigatou - means, thank? I'm honestly stuck on this one

That's all I know, and tbh, I'm learning more from anime and Jpop than regular learning programs.

'Oni-sama' - big brother
'One-sama' - big sister
'kawaii' - cute
'minna' - everyone
'gambate' - good luck
'baka' - stupid/idiot
'onegai' - please
'sayonara' - goodbye

I'm learning Japanese just because I love Japan and their culture .

Oh yeah I forgot about those one.

But isn't it Onee-chan and Onii-chan? Or is that alternate spelling?

Onee-chan and Onii-chan are diminutives .

As a quick side note, sayounara isn't really used for an every day goodbye. It's more like a farewell when you won't see someone for a long time. As an every day goodbye people usually use ja mata, mata ne, or even baibai. Mata ashita is see you tomorrow.

Super super super late reply (and a bump to this thread if anyone has questions or wants to chat in Japanese?)

Sayounara definitely has that sense of 'finality' in most cases, BUT it's also used in everyday life at schools. I didn't know that at all until I started working here, but when students leave the school, the teachers say sayounara and the students respond with the same.
I've literately never heard it anywhere else outside my school as a normal/everyday farewell though so its probably just a school thing? Maybe a formality thing, when phrases like お先にに失礼します/osakinishitsureishimasu aren't used?  Among my coworkers typically the teacher leaving will use お先にに失礼します and whoever replies will use sayounara.
