Lesson Transcript

Hey guys! あ、ちょっと違う。
Hey guys! Risa here!
Welcome to the Ask Risa video series, where you can ask questions and I answer them.
Ok! Let’s check out the questions we have for this week!
ソウマヤディープさんからの質問です。
Hi! ソウマヤさん, ソウマヤディープさん!
What is the simplest and Easy way to learn kanji characters?
漢字覚えるの難しいですよね。
そうですねぇ、例えば、漢字も意味が分からなかったらただの記号なので、まずは読めるようにしてから書くといいと思います。
で、その覚えるのには、まぁ私達も小さい頃からそうだったんですけど、何度も書いたりして覚えるといいと思いますよ。はい。
あとはマンガとか、何か本とか読んでて、分からない漢字をチェックして、で、それをピックアップして覚えるっていうのもいいんじゃないでしょうか。
私達JapanesePodのサイトで、こういうチートシートがあるので、そちらもぜひ参考にしてみてください。
これだと、漢字とあと英語で意味が書いてあるので、覚えやすいと思います。
ぜひ参考にしてみてね。
Thank you!
Jonathan, hello!
Hello, Jonathan!
I'm very excited because I'm coming to Japan on January~~
I have subscribed to the youtube channel for quite some time and i just joined http://www.japanesepod101.com :)
I wanted to ask Risa about the transportation in Toyko~ is it different between JR, Tokyo Metro, and Toei??
Thank you very much!
Thank you, Jonathan!
ということはジョナサンもう日本にいるんでしょうか。
Welcome to Japan!
ようこそ。
ようこそ。
そうですね、東京はほんと地下鉄がいろんな、いろんなというか、もう発達してて、大体どこでも電車で行けてしまうんですけど、
JRとかそういう東京メトロとか都営は、会社の名前で、特に、あのう、使う分にはそんな関係無いと思います。
まぁちょっと金額も変わったりしますけど。
全然乗り継ぎできるので。はい。
まぁ、確かに乗り継ぎとかをする時に、JRから東京メトロとかに替えたら、まぁ、少し料金は高くなっちゃいますけど、JRを使うだけよりも。
でも東京、いろんなとこ移動したいってなったらやっぱ使う方が早く行けるので。はい。
みんな使ってますね、おそらく。
アンジュレさんからの質問です。
Andrej-san, thank you!
How can I learn kanji? I have tried the kanji series with Hiroko that you have on your channel, they helped me learn something, I also search for other kanji series and I can't find anything. I try really hard to find something to learn kanji. Hello from Macedonia!
Macedonia! Hi!
Aside from Hiroko-senpai's video, we also have the new Kanji series which I hosted with Alisha. Actually, since it's very popular, we are planning on making more episodes, so stay tuned for that! Check it out!
And that's it! Thank you, everyone, for submitting your questions. Thank you! ありがとうございます。
See you next time for the next Ask Risa. またね。

Dear JapanesePod101, how long should we beginners be spending time looking at long rows of Kanji/Hiragana/Katakana characters that mean nothing to us? Quite confused and getting sad over my ignorance, Peter
