Learned Kanji 9


As I keep memorizing more Kanji, I have to find new ways to make my brain remember them, specially when I get to those Kanji that are pretty much alike or have many elements in common o.o But it sure is good when I’m able to do it  ^_^

手zu/te (hand)

南nan/minami (south)

北boku/kita (north)

映ei/utsuru (to reflect/to project on a screen)

重juu/chou/omoi (heavy)

者sha/mono (person)

住 juu/chuu/sumu (live/reside)

運 un/ hakobu (luck/to carry)

週 shuu (week)

Until now I’ve learned more than one hundred Kanji ^_^v Though it’s not much if we consider that kids learn more than one thousand just in elementary school… But I’ll keep learning! 😉


Another Study Update


I have to organize my studying because I’ve had lost track of it >.< On the past 2 weeks I’ve slowed down a bit on my studies but I’ve been happy to realize that my understanding of the spoken language has improved!

I need to focus on my weak points and re-start there I guess…

A quick to – do list:

– Study more Kanji and review the one’s I’ve already learned

– Catch up on the NihongoUp Lessons (I’m so far behind…)

– Review Japanese adjevtives

That will be it for now!


My notebook


When learning a language is important to memorize and retain all the information you can. When I first started to learn Japanese this was a need I felt. So I got a notebook and started to write down every word and expression that I came across so I wouldn’t forget, this has been a major learning aid for me because you can’t learn a language without learning vocabulary can you?

I get my vocabulary from every source that I can, Japanese music, tv shows, anime, etc.

I took some pictures of my notebook with my cell-phone’s camera (hence the bad quality…)

This is it!

The appeal of Languages


I’ve always loved languages, in school one of my favorite subjects was English and I also enjoyed French, so no surprise that I’m learning a third foreign language.

For a while I’ve been thinking in going to University again (I already have a degree in Social Studies) to attend a Languages and Comunication degree…It will be three more years of study, so sometimes I think I’m crazy…

Though at this point in my life it would do me good…Well, I have some thiking to do!
