Video 2: Learning Katakana

On Learn Japanese With james0vince

So yes this blog is called learn Kanji with james0vince but you are not going to be able to get very far without Hiragana at least. Often people put Hiragana on the side (or on top of) Kanji (Furigana), this helps with the reading, the Furigana will tell you whether or not you are using the On reading or the Kun reading. Also there is a ton of Katakana in Tokyo these days, Katakana is used for imported words, (non-Chinese or Japanese) and most brand names, new products and even your own name will be written in Katakana. Also Kanji is affected by Hiragana and Katakana, Having some Hiragana after the Kanji will almost certainly mean that the Kanji will be at best slightly modified (for example read to reading) or it could completely change the Kanji. So knowing all the Joyo Kanji would be pointless without Hiragana and Katakana.

Kamping Pt. 1

On The Very First EFL Teacher Blog Ever

Quick: name one thing in Korea that's not stylish, metropolitan, or particularly Korean!

My answer is outdoor recreation.

Camping is very popular here. For the past few years, its been a big trend, and a big business. That's great, because I've always liked camping. The differences between American and Korean camping culture are very interesting to me. The biggest for shock factor is that some Koreans do often camp in large public parks. Fair enough.
