Back at japanese tonight (class 11) so won’t be making pancakes myself till tomorrow. Had some for lunch though. Didn’t really do enough study of the language even though I mean’t too, but flicking back though my notes I remember a good amount. I am looking forward to the class.
I have been playing the game Okami recently which uses about 20 kanji. I also have been reading the kanji a day newletter. Todays is 国.
Kuni: 国 Meanings: country, nation. On Readings: koku. Kun Readings: kuni. JLPT Level: 4. Grade: 2
