戻りました!Fall/Winter 2013 Schedule/ 秋と冬のスケジュール

Hi everyone, I’m back to making more blog posts now after taking a short break due to a change in my work/life.

I didn’t expect to have so many viewers with the Kyary Kyary Pamyu Pamyu video, over 12k in a month!

So I’ve decided to continue my Japanese studies and help everyone learning this season on my 3 greatest weaknesses.

1) Advanced grammar – なされる、してもしなくても、では、に

2) Japanese History/Figures – studying Japanese art, monuments, locations and words

3) Kanji (always) – better techniques, books, apps, blogs to study and read Kanji

I think this will help anyone studying on the JLPT as well, since any learning is helpful.

So the list of projects I want to work on this season include:
1) Subtitling one of my new favorite Japanese TV Show I watched called “Youは何しに日本へ” or “Why did you come to Japan?”

2) Study and write blogs about various parts of Japan and its culture.  For instance, pick a few places I’ve heard from friends like Hokkaido北海度, Aomori青森, Osaka 大阪 and study some of the culture of the city.

3) Was interested in learning about Japanese cooking 和食、Kendo県土, Bushido武士道, Japanese tea ceremony 茶の優 so I will study, post videos and such.

4) More Japanese songs and comics and finish up JLPT 3 lessons to start the JLPT2.

I may not get to all of these things, but those are my goals for this blog.

Thanks for checking out my blog.

[Japanese Test] JLPT N3 問題1聴解「ちょうかい」 Listening Comprehension

01-ちょうかいー説明.mp3

問題1-例 Audio

n3_rei

1)8時45分

2)9時

3)9時15分

4)9時30分

From the example provided, the answer is 1, listen carefully and you will hear the man asking the woman to come to the 事務所(office) at 9:30AM. She asks him how long it will take by taxi from the hotel to the office. He says it’ll take about 30 minutes so she said ok so I’ll leave at 9AM then. However, he said the roads might be crowded so for her to come 15 minutes earlier therefore 8:45AM. This is just an example in the book, but understanding not only the words but the meaning is crucial to learn to understand the language. If you don’t understand everything or its too fast just listen to parts of it at a time. Its just as important to immerse yourself in the language your studying everyday regardless of how much you know. I will just publish 5 questions today with the question and the answers will posted in the next 5 questions. There are 40 questions, so this will be an 8 part listening series. Hope you all enjoy!
