Hi Ezra,
Thank you for the comment!

I think learning all hiragana and katakana alone might take quite a bit.
How about learning some hiragana related to useful phrases like “hajimemashite=はじめまして”?

Hi Samuel,
Thank you for the comment!

Most of Japanese kanji characters have multiple readings and “山”(mountain) is read both “yama” and “san”.
Normally “富士山”(Mt.Fuji) is read “Fujisan” :smile:

I have a question on Japanese. One friend of mine has told me the for the Japanese word for mountain 山 (fuji-san
and Fuji Yama are the same in when spoken.

why does this happen?
is there a difference in different situation?

Hi Patricia,
Thank you for posting!

“jin” is written 人 in kanji and 人 means “people/human/person”.
Let me add that 人 is also read in other ways like “jin” “nin” “hito” and so on.

For example of “jin”;
Watashi wa nihon-jin desu. = I am Japanese.
Watashi wa amerika-jin desu = I am American.

Hope this helps you :smile:

Question is the “jin” a short of “gaijin”? I thought that was the case
