Telling Time

I don’t know about you, but I think that telling time in Japanese is a little tricky. It not that it’s hard exactly. and it’s fine with whole and half hours. But when it comes to the minutes I never seem to remember if it’s supposed to be ふん or ぷん. It’s easy enough when you write because you can just write the Kanji for minutes 分. I probably just need some more practice.

I figured I’d share a little game/test I was able to find online.

Study Guide

Since I am studying by myself I don’t really need a study guide. But I am now halfway through my textbook Genki I An Integrated Course In Elementary Japanese, and I figured that now would be a good time to go back and review what I have learned so far.

I discovered that the first two chapters I can remember with no problem (maybe except for some of the numbers). But then I have started to forget some of the grammar. So I sat down and started to put together a study guide. Just as I would do if I was studying for a test.

I did look online, trying to find a test based on the Genki book. But I couldn’t really find anything good. Maybe I’ll have to make one myself. But it’s not quite the same if you’ve made it yourself. Oh well, we’ll see what I decide to do.
