Last Tuesday I returned to my regular German classes and, oh my, it’s so good to be back. I had never lost touch with the language as all my gadgets, computer, Facebook, Twitter and even some of my friends posts are in German. Anyhow, following a book again, speaking German, making mistakes, having a great teacher to correct me, and interacting with others by using German are things you cannot easily get outside a classroom.
So we’re studying clothes, die Kleidung, and I’d like to share what I’ve learnt so far.
I bet you’ll like it…
Even though I’m a native Portuguese speaker, every day I find out a new word or something I say wrong.
When you read vimos, a Portuguese verb, you probably thing of it as the past of ver (to see). And that’s correct, but did you know this tiny word can mean another thing?
So I decided to finally write a post about the Japanese language; the language I’m a beginner at but which I’ve already fallen in love with.
You may be wondering: “why in the world would I learn all these crazy symbols if I know nothing about Japan?” For starters, the fact that something is different from what you know doesn’t make it crazy; besides, it’s easier, way easier, than you think.
When I had decided to study Japanese some people suggested me to study Chinese instead, due to its economical advantages. What people don’t get it, and I hope you do, is that no matter what you study, work with, and do, you must feel connected to it somehow. Yeah, it sounds cheesy, but I mean it! Maybe you’re just curious and attracted by the exoticness of Japanese “letters” or the richness of this language’s culture, it doesn’t matter: go for it!
I want to introduce you to this wonderful language, may I?
