Firstly i want to thank Yumiko Sensei (Ms Yumiko). Every Friday she does a wonderful job. Making sure we have slides ready, worksheets ready, and she ensures everyone has the support we have to ensure we are learning Japanese. Our classes have been absolutley amazing. Its only one hour but we learn so much, in so little time. Yumiko Sensei goes a little more than a mile every week. I know my peers learning Japanese find it very fun and interesting (thanks to Sensei Yumiko).
Every lesson we learn diferent things. From greetings, easy phrases, and general-knowledge about Japan. Every week our vocabulay and japanese knowledge grows. So far I can confidently say hello, my full name, what I prefer to be called, one of my interest, my age, where im from, daily greetings (both formal and casual) and formal commands.
Im still trying to get my head around the language structure. It was our second lesson and Sensei Yumiko was holding up a chart while explaing the vowels in the japanses language. Everyone was able to pick up the vowels and follow Sensei "A-I-U-E-O! KA-KI-KU-KE-KO...." Unlucky for me, it took a little while to pick up. Learning that the vowels were different from A-E-I-O-U. Also learning they didnt use R.
Before I leave or at the end of my last class, I will post my full personal introduction and greetings. Again these experiences are very amazing. Being able to learn the beauty and importance of another culture is a very blessed opportunity.
