菜 (greens, vegetable, side dish) popped up in my kanji practice last week, and then it showed up again when I went out to dinner and saw it on the menu! It becomes a part of 野菜 (vegetable) but strangely enough disappears in 精進揚げ (vegetable tempura). Probably one of the most exciting things about learning (for me) is when I get to apply it in real life scenarios. I will read a menu I know by heart over again just to see if there’s anything new I recognize since the last time I visited. Speaking of menus, 永次 and I found a new restaurant that serves Japanese cuisine! (One of our favorites closed down, so we need to find a new place!) Anyway, we really enjoyed the food, the decor, and the prices- so we’ll definitely be back. And they have 稲荷寿司 (inarizushi) – which is one of my favorite things to munch. 桃 out!
Learning Japanese At HomeOur goal for Kanji & Tea, aside from sharing our struggles and successes, is to help provide the everyday person with all the tools necessary to learn Japanese on their own through everyday immersion.
How did you learn your first language? Hands on and not through a text book! You listened, you watched, you absorbed. Well, what's stopping you from learning your second or third language that way? The answer is nothing.
You have everything you need to get started. All that's left is to just start.
