My computer has a virus on it, and I can't access the internet, so...no crazy blogs from me for a while! My dad will let me use his laptop occasionally, but has a go at me everytime I use it :\ He reckons that me and my sister break everything. Okay, so he leant us his OLD laptop, and when I say OLD im talking that he bought it when laptops first got big, so maybe early 2000s or just after? 10 years later, and the laptop stops working. I google the problem and find out that OLD LAPTOPS USUALLY HAVE A PROBLEM WHEN THE RAM GIVES OUT. THE FUCKING RAM IS GONE MATE. ITS NOTHING TO DO WITH US, JUST YOUR OLD LAPTOP.
Oh! I have news! After a year of studying Japanese on my Nintendo DS, I've invested in a (real life) Japanese tutor to help me out! He told me that he thinks my Japanese is quite good already which im happy about, as I thought it was quite basic. although I guess I know quite a bit, I don't really get the chance to use it but I thought that I really would need the practise if im planning to go back and forth to good ol' Japan every so often and possibly eventually live out there. But how did I study Japanese on my DS you ask?
With this! My Japanese Coach for Nintendo DS! Here are some other screenshots
It helps you learn by letting you practise characters and by recording your voice against the sensei. You learn about loads of stuff, culture, family, food, etc and you also learn Kanji, which is what ive just started to learn. When you finish a level, you're given the opportunity to learn the stuff for yourself with the help of games, like flash cards, writing cards and others. M favorite game is probably write cards, and now my hiragana/katakana is great!
Whilst being on the Japanese topic, im going back to Japan this October with my girls Niijii and Caryn! We'll be going to Osaka for 3 days and Tokyo for 10. Ill try and bring some more updates when my pc works again!!
