Some my students started to prepare JLPT(Japanese Language Proficiency Test) from this month.
Three of them are going to take JLPT N3.
One is going to take JLPT N2.
JLPT test will be scheduled on Saturday December 1st.
I believe they all will pass their test because they started to study early,

It is difficult for nonnative Japanese speakers to learn onomatopoeia.

Study Chinese history with my old map in Japanese

Someone from China who studies Chinese history in graduate schools in the USA may need to learn the Japanese language. The reason is there are tons of great historical and journalistic articles about China in Japanese!
A huge number of our ancestors visited China to study their civilization and they reported it to help Japan a lot. That is why I get great used book from Japan for the students.

Japanese Girls Festival

In my Japanese class for kids, we had a sweet snack cooking class for celebrating Japanese Girls Festival called Hina Matsuri.
The snack is made from a regular pancake mix but it is colored with green, pink and white.
The color is a specific meaning for Hina-Matsuri for wishing their luck and health.

Learning classic Japanese literatures is "a gold mine"

Learning classic Japanese literatures is "a gold mine"

I just started new private lessons for a graduate student from China.
The goal is to build reading skill for Japanese classic academic literatures.
She studies Chinese architectural history.
As you may know there are a lot of academic literatures about China written in Japanese.
From long time ago many Japanese people went to China and studied for their life time their great civilization and had reported them to Japanese government or the people.

It also helps a lot for modern Chinese people like my students who needs to study their own history from third person’s perspective.

However it would be very difficult even for Japanese native speakers like us to read many articles even written in 20th century.

Here are three main reasons.
First, they are written in many characters that we no longer use now.
Second, they are written in different grammar from our modern Japanese one even if it was written about just fifty years ago around World War Two.
Third, there are many differences between Japanese writing form and the speaking form.

That is why I am here to help you.
We have a good advantage as well.
It is that we can focus to build only Japanese reading skill. We do not need to learn conversation skill.

I had another graduate student from Yale University. She was also from China and had studied the forest environmental history of China.
She got a grant from her university for studying this.

Classic Japanese literature must be
a gold for you too!
Let’s go to the gold mine with me!
The adventure should be very exciting!

This morning I planted four strains Japanese ginger called "Myouga".
Because flowerpot is too small, I will plant transfer later.
I think Japanese ginger is important seasoning of Japanese.
