I know little Japanese but being around it 24/7, sometimes I feel like I understand what people are saying. The reality is I have no idea. So the other night, after being invited by the only other girl here in Nikko that also doesn’t speak Japanese, I attended my first Japanese language class. Hey, for only ¥100, I figured I might learn a thing or two. And guess what, I did!
The Japanese Alphabet.
My phrase booklet.
I can now successfully read the alphabet and write my name (…and butcher a few key phrases). It might only be a small step in understanding where I am but it helps 🙂
And by the way, Lindsay is … リんず い – (Linzii-san) or since there is no real “z” sound … リんじ – (Linji-san)
