Japanese Mini-Break & Counters

7 Apr

So I’ve pretty much taken a break from my Japanese studies due to my excitement for the Read-a-thon this weekend and also because of the crazy new sheep breeding feature in Farmville (guilty pleasure).  But… I will get back to it next week full force.  In the meantime, I’m just working with my Pimsleur MP3s in the car on the way to and from work.  That way I don’t forget EVERYTHING!  🙂

In the meantime, I’ ve currently been working on learning the different pronunciations of the numbers with their counters and all.  Here is a fun video for the counter for people…


And here is a cute little song for learning how to count objects:

    I love the first one with the Samurai! 🙂

    Yep… that’s a catchier song for sure. Unfortunately, the counters in the other song are the ones I’m struggling with more so.

    I’ve since forgotten small object counters past 3, but pointing at objects and then holding up fingers works just as well when shopping. 😛
