永次 and I love dumplings(ぎょうざ) even though they can sometimes take quite a while to make. Since we no longer consume dairy products(乳製品), finding pre-made dumpling wrappers without egg(鶏卵) in them proved to be quite a challenge! It seemed every where we went and every package we turned over had it in the ingredients. I […]
I may have gone slightly overboard over on 8tracks and made about six mixes already to share for immersion purposes. Last time I shared Japanese native speaking, and today I’m going to share some actual music mixes I made for you. Enjoy!
永次 and I would like to provide something new here on Kanji & Tea, and I’m happy to share the first with you. Audio mixes to enhance your learning! You can bookmark the mix easily and listen to it through out your day while you work or while you’re doing other activities. We’ll be […]
So, you may remember last time we did study apps for the iPhone that 桃 and I landed on Kanji Flip and Kana Flip for our study needs.
And, as we said before, they are good.
Yes, there is a ‘but…’ coming on.
Recently I’ve been trying a lot of different methods of learning Japanese. My last post was about how great Hesig’s method of learning is and how learning the English meaning of the Kanji first is very important since it will give you a base to work from that can quite easily launch you into fluency.
Hi again! I know what you’re thinking, “My goodness, so soon?!” Well, I wanted to share a movie that 永次 and I watched the other day. (It’s a lot happier than the movie I watched today, that’s for sure!) ホッタラケの島 〜遥と魔法の鏡〜 is a 2009 release which won several film festival awards, and I can see […]
In April, 永次 and I fell off the Immersion Train. (Yes, I’m making that a term now.) Not completely, though, it was more like we weren’t immersing ourselves as much as we should have been. We made excuses, like catching up on our favorite American TV shows, and then slowly our 90% Japanese time became […]
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.
