Weather has been fantastic, we are having proper summer though it has been moody changeable weather. r
Today I introduce some simple words which are related to Summer. I must say that learning Japanese is far more difficult than learning English. While English language has one character of alphabet, Japanese language has three characters of katakana and Kanji and grammatically how to structure sentences is totally different from English. For that reasons, it is sometimes discouraging to study. However, learning simple words can be easy way to start.
You might have already known some of them! Hope this blog is of any help for your study. I states English words, Japanese words, it’s kanji and it’s hiragana.
