Reviewing Kanji

Yesterday, I started studying and reviewing Kanji as I had already forgotten most of Kanji. And it’s not good anymore. Even though I told myself not to write Kanji in my blog yet, but I couldn’t stop myself from sharing it here, to motivate not just myself but everyone to keep on learning. 

So far, I’ve passed my exam though it’s an N5 Kanji for now. 


There are three sets of flashcards that I made for myself. 

  • Kanji

  • Hiragana/Katakana

  • English

For Kanji, the flashcard is written in Kanji and I need to write the Hiragana/Katakana (whether it is On-Yomi or Kun-Yomi) equivalent and also to translate the Kanji into English.  


While for Hiragana/Katakana flashcards, I need to write the Kanji equivalent and also the English meaning of the Hiragana/Katakana sound. 


As for the English flashcards, I need to write the correct Kanji and also to write the Hiragana/Katakana sound of the given word. 


There are 10 flashcards for each set and two types of answers per item. But the score will still be 10/10. So, if I write the correct Kanji but the Hiragana/Katakana is wrong, it is considered as a wrong answer. Harsh, right? But this is how I study to not forget it. 


You can try it too. And share it with me if you answer all the items correctly. 


Let’s continue in learning. 

This is Ringo. 


See you next time.

How to say your age in Japanese?

  How to say your age in Japanese?  The counter for age in Japanese is さい (sai).    In the previous blog, I’ve already discussed how to count in Japanese, so it is easy to tell your age in Japanese. So, if someone asks your age, you can say the number and put さい after it.    Example:                 60 years old – ろくじゅっさい (rokujussai)                33 years old – さんじゅうさん さい (sanjuusan sai)                20 years old – はたち (hatachi)           15 years old – じゅうごさい (juugo sai)                  8 years old – はっさい                  1-year-old – いっさい (issai)     For 1, 8 and 20 years old, the Japanese age is read differently from the other numbers. Instead of いちさい for 1 year old, it is いっさい while for 8 years old, it is はっさい instead of はちさい . F or 20 years old, instead of saying にじゅうさい , use はたち without putting さい .      なんさいですか ? (nansai desu ka?) – how old are you? おいくつですか ? (o ikutsu desu ka?) – how old are you? (Formal way of asking someone’s age)   とし (toshi) – Japanese word

Ten-Ten (“) and Maru (˚) (Japanese Character)

  The small dashes (“) is called Ten-Ten. While the small circle is called Maru ( ˚ ). Not all Hiragana and Katakana characters have Ten-Ten or Maru. There are only 20 characters that have changes in pronunciation when Ten-Ten and Maru are added. For Ten-ten:                              K”      à      G                        S”       à      Z                        T”      à      D                        H”      à      B For Maru:                             H ˚      à      B Don’t get confused with the change of pronunciation with H. Just remember that if H has Ten-Ten, it will be read as B while if H has Maru, the pronunciation is B.                                    Hiragana and Katakana Characters with Ten-Ten and Maru が ( ガ ) ga ぎ ( ギ ) gi ぐ ( グ ) gu げ ( ゲ ) ge ご ( ゴ ) go ざ ( ザ ) za じ ( ジ ) ji ず ( ズ ) zu ぜ ( ゼ ) ze ぞ (

Japanese Pronouns

Japanese Pronouns   What is Pronoun? According to, Pronoun is a pronoun used to refer to a speaker or the people/things that a speaker is referring to. It replaces a noun in a sentence. There are seven types of pronouns namely: the personal pronoun, the demonstrative pronoun, the interrogative pronoun, the relative pronoun, the indefinite pronoun, the reflexive pronoun, and the intensive pronoun. But today, I will only talk about personal pronouns.   In Japan, pronouns can be omitted in a sentence if both speaker and the person the speaker is referring to know the context of the sentence. Also, pronouns give importance to hierarchy, like respect for elders, seniority, or social order. It denotes the characteristics of the speaker or the person talking to like age, gender, and their relationships.   Pronoun in Japanese is だ い め い し (代名詞) read as Da i me i shi .
