Here we are again! I am making progress with my Japanese, I am so proud I am really staying with it this time. Class was really nice, we did some talking in class and of course continued with the hiragana. I am having so much fun, it is really giving me energy.
I did a lot at home too this week for Japanese. School was also busy (again). There is just a lot of research and reading this time. Normally we go quite quickly into making models and ideas. Another nice thing, I went to the bookstore here and this particular bookstore has a lot of really nice Japanese art books and craft books. Yesterday they had a big sale, I didn’t bought a lot, but still a few, I wanted so much more. I really like the books with patterns in them. So, I bought one really nice one of those. Also a book with cranes to fold. I really low the story of the ‘1000 cranes’, which ever version you, a wish or eternal luck, I really like the idea. Who knows, maybe these 100 are the first 100 of my 1000 cranes. It also has all the colours in Japanese and some nice patterns on the wings!
Last book (well I bought more, but last I share here) is with pictograms. They are so nice, simple and clear.
I promised to share something again, but it won’t be list or grammar. I practise wrote some text and I want to show them. I already put them on Lang-8 earlier this week and they turn out to be quite alright, I just need to work on my kanji and it will be lots better.
First small text is basically a note you leave when you leave home. Very basic, but still it took me a bit.
This is what it says:
Today I am going to study with friends at the university. I won’t eat dinner at home. I’ll be back around ten o’clock.
The the second one is what I do in a weekend. It is made up, because I don’t know all the words I need yet for my actual weekend, but it makes a nice story.
I went to Japanese class on Friday. We talked Japanese in class. Then, I went back home. I ate dinner at home.
I go to shops a lot on Saturday. I bought shoes at the shop.
I woke up late Sunday. In the morning I watched TV. Then, I ate lunch. In the afternoon, I studied Japanese.
Someone who helped me make the text better also asked me what Japanese food I liked best. I tried to answer, but I’m not sure if it is any good (don’t have any reply yet)
ありがとうございます！漢字をれんしゅうします。わたしのおきにいりのスナックはバビースターラーメン（I hope this is the right name）です。そばをしってします、そばをたべました。そばをすきます。おきにいりの日本しょくひんでラーメンとすしです。
Oh, and, I made a cake today! It is still cooling down, but it looks good!
