how do i say "in 1/2/3/... days" in japanese? for example: "my birthday is in 2 days"
誕生日は５日後です / tanjôbi ha itsuka go desu. / (my) birthday is in five days
you can use the days as subject too:
６日後は私の誕生日です / muika go ha watashi no tanjôbi desu / my birthday is in 6 days.
for 1 or 2 days you can use "tomorrow" or "after tomorrow"
明日は／明後日は誕生日です : tomorrow/the day after tomorrow is (my) birthday.
How do I say "when"? Like for example in the context of "When X happens, Y always starts talking."
I was looking through it and you seem to give out some very handy answers when it comes to the Japanese language. Was thinking I could leave questions here in the future.

日本語の勉強をします - I study (do study of) japanese

how did you learn japanese? and how old are you?
こんにちは。来年は、日本へ行きたいです。私は日本が好きです！ can you corrext these sentences please? :D
what do i say when i want to say "and" at the beginning of a sentence?
人 - when do i say "jin" and when "hito"? for example this sentence: 本を読まない人は、頭がよくない。
However, 人 is a kanji with several irregular uses, and part of words that looks like compounds but from japanese origin, so even in compounds you'll find it as にん or ひと: 人気(にんき),人目(ひとめ),人出(ひとで),人数(ひとかず),人波(ひとなみ).
Even on suffixes, you'll have じん and にん: アメリカ人(あめりかじん) and 代理人(だいりにん)
And as a counter, is にん except for 一人(ひとり) 二人(ふたり)
In your example, 人 is a noun for "person", so it's ひと.
Sorry ... I don't remember the 3 kanjis of the plane ... Can you tell me please? あなた は すごい です! Sorry , I don't really know if this sentence is correct :)
国 I'm not sure ... It means the country ?
By itself its read くに and means "country".
Compounds include: 国際(こくさい) international 国内(こくない) within the country, doestic, internal, 外国(がいこく) foreign country, 外国人(がいこくじん) person from outside, foreigner, 帝国(ていこく) empire, imperial
番 help me please ?:3
For example 2番線 is "the track no.2" (on a train station).
Compounds include 順番(じゅんばん, turn, order, secuence), 番号(ばんごう, number, digits)
Also is used with the meaning of "performance, in duty, keep watch", which is where compounds like these takes its meaning: 出番(でばん one's turn) 本番(ほんばん actual performance -against practice-) 交番(こうばん, police box) 当番(とうばん, being on duty) 留守番(るすばん watching the house, care-taking)
