There's a word shinshin which means mind and body, which may be of some use. Which is more important, having a cool sounding name or having a name which is correct and natural sounding Japanese?
Dead thread is dead.
I asked a Japanese lecturer... She suggested juunansa for suppleness, so we went for shinshin no juunansa.
Thanks for the help by the way!
Yeah. Hopefully they won't take much longer.
Anyway, I'm starting to feel like classes just don't cut it any more, so I'm looking for some practice on my own but my level's still too low to be able to simply read newspapers and all. Does anyone know of resources that don't require a too good level of Japanese to read or listen to?
Is anybody here taking or have already taken A level Japanese? I'm preparing to take the AS exam on edexcel this may but finding resources is an absolute nightmare. I've looked at the edexcel spec and am currently going through the kanji list making sure I've learned everything but if anyone could recommend any books/sites/etc that expand upon the information in the spec I'd be forever greatful!
I've recently won a scholarship to the University of Tokyo. The scholarship comes with a bursary.
After rent and utilities/internet, I have 70,000 yen per month for living expenses (food, underground subway, leisure).
I've been told this isn't really enough. How much does it cost to feed yourself in Tokyo?
Just a couple of notes:
1) I'm very frugal with my food, from using fresh vegetables and home cooking: it only costs me £25 a week to feed myself in England.
2) I don't drink much alcohol or go clubbing or have a massive shopping addiction!
Personal experiences would be fantastic!! What do you suggest I budget?
Thank you for all replies
Can anyone explain to me the difference between the particules Kara and Node please? It seems to me they both mean the same thing, or is there a subtle difference?
