I love the idea of video vocab. I'd like to see it done in a more interesting/informative way than white text on a black background. You could photos of objects and places to show people who have never been to Japan what the Japanese versions look like. Kanji from labels and street scenes could be other sources. A basic example might be if there was a lesson on colours then you could show those that are typical of Japan such as the red used on torii, the jewel-like purple seen in shrines, the indigo used for tie-dye, the range of colour indicated by 青 (traffic lights, apples, trees), etc.


よろしく!

It's gonna be strange to not have Peter-san in the Newbie lesson anymore (I know, I know, my actual level is lower intermediate, but I still listen to Newbie because those lessons are so funny. I'm a big fan of Fabrizio :lol:)... :cry:

Upper Intermediate will be good Keigo does not get enough exposure. Even my teacher said young Japanese these days do not know it :(

Can anyone explain the phrase used in the podcast, that Peter translated as "Just do it" ? I think it was something like:


始めてよければ全てよし


I have never heard よし used in a sentance before, only as a standalone exclamation. Naomi's seemed quite suprised at Peter's translation... is that really what it means?

Mina-san, Happy New Year again!


We're looking forward to another

exciting year of teaching Japanese!

In addition to this, we have some really nice

things coming up!


To address a few of the questions.


Business Japanese will rock. I am really enjoying them

as I am learning a lot about doing business in Japan, which

quite convenient as I am doing business in Japan. (hehe)


Upper intermediate is very, very hard. This will definitely

be challenging! 頑張ってください。


Our levels our a bit misleading as intermediate has always

blurred into advanced. With this seperation we try to make

lower intermediate a little less intimidating and upper a lot

more.:)

Upper will have lots of polite Japanese, that we have to

check again and again before releasing.:)

However, you'll be surprised how much contact you've already

had with this material!

楽しみ!


More JLPT material noted!


Think Marky got the rest.
