Konnichiwa! Watashiwa R-yo Desu!

After months of procrastination, I finally decided to get formal education on Nihonggo. But it’s still not the rigid type – just a “pa-cute” once a week three-hour lecture. I don’t know where this will bring me, but it’s better than relying on my own pace. After about 5 months of lackadaisical self-study, I still can’t compose a decent Japanese sentence. This means I haven’t really taken things seriously. Or maybe, my brain just can’t tolerate serious learning anymore.


The class, sponsored by a city-based international organization and primarily aimed at foreigners, started last Saturday. On attendance were a Columbian, Ethiopian, Romanian and Turkish neophytes to Japan. Of course, there were Filipinos. Five of us (he he, di talaga patatalo).


Gambatte to me, ne!

i think it would be easier for you to learn nihonggo. kasi ma-practice mo siya everyday. good luck!

ang pinka-favorite ko na line na naaral ko before sa jap class, "denwa bangou wa, nan ban desu ka." hindi ko na nga maalala ngayon ang ibig sabihin niyan. basta alam ko nagtatanong ng telephone number yan e.

neway, watashiwa enrico desu. doozo yoroshiku onegai shimasu.

Ang alam ko malaki ang sweldo ng mga Japanese Interpreters. After mo mag-aral n'yan, mag-take ka ng mga Proficiency Exams. Iba iba atang levels 'yun. Career-in mo ang pag-Nihonggo. Hehe.

Turismoboi: Langya. Akala ko kung ano yun. he he

R-yo said...

joaqui: As if naman matututo ako. he he

R-yo said...

enrico: pakonti-konting aral lang to. di rin naman kasi ako magtatagal dito.

R-yo said...

blogusvox: he he. me kasama ngang writing lessons. kaya lang di naman nakasulat sa katakana. baka yung vinegar nakasulat sa kanji, di ko rin malalaman. he he

R-yo said...

Gasdude: Di ko sya kayang karerin. Nahihilo na utak ko pag seryosong aralan he he.

I love it! You're learning Japanese na. Balak mo bang manirahan ng matagal diyan ha Kuya?

i admire people who study asian languages that don't follow the latin alphabet. it takes patience and effort to learn that! something that i couldn't do! good luck!
