  • Don’t fuck around and start studying ASAP.
  • Utilize word cards. Even if you hate flashcards (like me), they’re a godsend when it comes to memorizing kanji and vocabulary.
  • Keep in mind how much kanji and vocabulary you need to know for which ever test you’re taking. For instance, I’m taking the…

This mistake is very easy to make, and it is one that is very commonly made by foreigners in Japan, usually to the consequence of great embarassment on both ends (>ω<;)☆  The girl wanted to say「すわっていいですか?」(suwatte ii desu ka?) Which means "Can I sit down?" But, she made a little mistake with the verb sound and accidentally said「さわっていいですか?」(sawatte ii desu ka?) Which means “Can I touch you?” To make sure that you don’t make the same embarassing mistake, make sure you know the difference between the verbs すわる (suwaru) - to sit - and さわる (sawaru) - to touch!

nihongo-lessons:

The conjunction “but” in Japanese is usually said as “けど” (kedo). This is usually when linking two parts of a sentence together. 
Ex: 
眠いだけどまだ起きてる
(I’m sleepy but I’m still awake/
Though I’m sleepy, I’m still awake)
そうですけど気にしない
(That’s true but I don’t care/
Though that’s true, I don’t care)

If it’s at the end, it usually suggests that the sentence is incomplete or adding to a previous sentence; not just by itself.
Ex:
そうですけど…
(That’s true, but…)
眠いだ。まだ起きてるけどね!
(I’m sleepy. Even though I’m still awake!)

For the most part, “but” used at the beginning of a sentence is said as “でも”(demo)
Ex:
でもそれはすごいずるいんだ!
(But that’s so unfair!)
でも彼はアメリカ人じゃないね?
(But he’s not American, right?)

A green sea turtle, Chelonia mydas. This is my last illustration I made for my internship in Greece. These past three months have been amazing and I will miss the beautiful nature of Greece and the amazing scientists I worked with.
It is good to know there are actually a lot of people who care about nature and its conservation. I hope my illustrations will be used for the same great cause as well.
Greetings from Belgium! (back home again!)
