Hello everyone, welcome to my new blog...Lessons!
Since I'm trying to learn Japanese, I thought it would help to start teaching it as well.
I'm going to start off simple and put up ten words and give their romaji and then the Kana.
Well...since i can't find audio files i need for most of these things...and any fancy dictionary notation...you'll have to live for now with my pitiful attempt to sound out each word.
On that note, r's are made with a kind of half r/l sound, hard to explain...listen to the "arigatou" clip to hear it.
good - ii - いい "e"
bad - dame - だめ "dah-may"
yes - hai - はい
no - iie - いいえ
hello - konnichiwa - こんにちは "co-knee-chi-wah"
good-bye - sayounara - さようなら "saw-yo-nah-ra"
this - kore - これ "co-ray"
that - sore - それ "so-ray"
thank you - arigatou - ありがとう
I (formal) - watashi - わたし "wah-tah-shi"
Not much at the moment, I have a few...worksheets...cheat sheets...and even tests (as well as homework). Also since not everyone can read the Japanese characters, please post a comment in this post about that, and I'll see what i can do.
