The Beauty of Exchange →☆★←


I have read in many sites that having a language exchange partner can really help with learning your target language and you can also develop a great friendship.  As you can see my target language is Japanese.  There are many websites that bring people together either face to face or virtually.  I wanted to meet … Continue reading

日本語Study While on Vacation


For the past few days I have been in Los Angeles California for my late summer vacation.  I have been on a roll with studying Japanese (ie.

Where are the spaces!? なに!?

Why Japan and not Nihon/Nippon??


It is natural for me to ask this question but textbooks don’t necessarily answer it. The few books that I read that were for basic learning of the language only told me that in Japan, natives say Nihon 日本 not “Japan”.  Well I finally looked it up after so many days of wondering and not … Continue reading
