Hi Seekill,


We've fixed the issue. The lesson is longer than others, so please make sure to listen both audio lesson files - The later one is marked as "Audio Part 2."


Thank you,

Amazing... amazingly funny, that is. I've never had this much fun listening to a language lesson!

Nadia Comaneci is a Romanian gymnast. She is famous because she is the first person in history to receive a perfect 10. The funny thing is that, when that happened, the electronic board didn't have enough numbers to show a 10.00, so in stead it showed a 1.00 :mrgreen:


By the way, I just love the intros, especially the "classic touch"! :grin:

Keep up the good work guys!

Ithought this was a great podcast...lots of fun, and I had definitely been wondering about some of the intros...looking forward to more explanations with lots of esoterica. It keeps things lively, and fun.

thanks

jasonさん、


>>the very informal form of すみません and すまない


yeah you're right about すまん. but i wasn't talking about すまん in particular. i should have been more clear; i was referring to わからん and つまらん (as those are what i hear the most). both of which have a kind of curt feeling, imo.

>>The Last Shogun by Shiba Ryotaro


love that book!

as for english books about shinsengumi, "Shinsengumi: The Shogun's Last Samurai Corps" by Romulus Hillsborough isn't a bad read at all. i wish he went deeper, but he's clearly a lover of the 維新志士 and not the 幕府. it's quite evident in his book "Ryoma" which is much longer and detailed than this one.


>>Sakamoto Ryoma and the Meiji Restoration


i know this book but i didn't like the cover so i haven't read it yet. ( how's that for a lame cliche?) now that i have a recommendation, i'm gonna go and pick it up this weekend! thanks for the おすすめ :dogeza:


>>Revolutionary Origins of Modern Japan


i'll check this one out too!! thanks!!!

I am so glad to hear this extra/lesson. :mrgreen: I like these behind the scenes and the meanings things. I think this is the third time listening to this and I'm still not tired of it.

So I am guessing:

- コマネチ is Nadia Comaneci the Romanian gymnast.

- こうばしい to me is equivalent to the word pungent, a really strong smell, no? :???:


Does こうばしい just relate to food or could it be other smells?
