Hello Abel,

Thank you for the question.

Women like to hide their true age, therefore let us just answer that she is young. 😁

I hope you enjoyed the video.

ナイスなレッスンです。 :thumbsup:


Hello everyone.

That's a nice lesson! (Well thought and performed.) :thumbsup:

It is great to have the same text in the video and in the lesson notes.


My favorite word is sudachi (leaving the nest).

I like it because the Kanji are nicely depicting the meaning of the word; reminds me on how the little birds on my balcony stood in the nest before taking their first flight.

次のレッスンの楽しみに。 :D
