旧正月(きゅうしょうがつ/Lunar New Year) おめでとうございます!

旧正月がもうすぐ終わります。後8日かな?今まで、どうやって過ごしましたか。お年玉をたくさんもらいましたか。今年の旧正月は私にとって、最低でした。旧正月の時期、家族とちょっとあって、マレーシアへ義理の兄弟に会いに行きました。

まあ、マレーシアでもちょっといろいろがあって、結局、悲しい気持ちでシンガポールに帰りました。
また、先ほど、友達のストーリーも聞いて、心配しました。

みなさん、時間があれば、周りの友達に電話してみたらどうでしょうか。仕事のせいか、みなさんは忙しいかもしれませんが、周りの友達に声をかけて、関心を与えましょう。いつもFBを使ったら、意味ないでしょう? =)

Grammar Points
1. Noun +にとって  (N2 grammar): To ~
2. た-form+らどうですか/どうでしょうか。(N4 grammar): How about you do ~
3. Noun +せいか (N2 grammar): Due to ~ (bad result?)

A “Part-time degree”: Learning Japanese

みなさん、

こんばんは。

Thank you those of you who take time to read my blog. Appreciate your support. Tonight, i’ll like to share something about learning Japanese.

For a lot of you, when you learn Japanese, at the start, was it a rush to want to learn? Was it due to some friend’s invitation? Regardless the reason, you just began your journey with the language.

I feel studying Japanese is like taking a part-time degree. At the start, it seems easy. As time goes by, when you learn more, you start to feel that it gets difficult, then some of you decide to give it up, because you find that it’s just a “part-time degree”, something that you can give it up, or you no longer have the time to commit to doing this “degree”. Some of you need this “part-time degree” for your future/current job, so you would have to endure through this phase. Then, there comes the final year “honours” project, the “N1”.

Then it comes to a point that you reach Pre-Advanced and N2, that’s where you decide you get your “part-time degree” and decides to stop learning.

No matter what happens, wherever you stop, do take some time to thank your sensei for guiding through the various modules in the “part-time degree”.

Learning has never stop for me, as i still attend Japanese lessons with my 3 sensei-tachi from Japan, so that i can continuously give my best to my students. =)

JLPT Results

Received my results for my students.
————————————————–
N1: 1/4 passers . Top scorer with score of 114/180
N2: 3/5 passers (1st attempt from N4 after 1 yr of studies.) Top scorer with score of 167/180.
N4: 5/5 passers. Top scorer with score of 167/180
N5: 10/13 passers. Top scorer with score of 148/180

Overall, a bit disappointed with myself. But happy to say that my top student has done it again. Passed N2 after 1 yr of studies from N4.
