First Lesson in Japanese
Yesterday I had my first lesson in Japanese. A classmate from the Music Business Program is a major in Japanese Studies. We talked about basic sentence structure in the Japanese language, present tense and different particles. I am not going to get into details but the sentence structure in Japanese is different. The verb is at the end of the sentence. So it is subject, object and verb.
He gave me a list of words focussing on the important vocabulary for organizing a Japan-tour. We started with simple sentences in present tense that start with “I” or “we”.
“Watashi ha Christoph Hoffmann desu.”
Well, to be honest I knew that sentence already before mars mushrooms went to Japan. I don’t have my notes here right now, but he taught me a lot more sentences similar to that. You see, I am excited! I’ll pretty soon start bothering my Japanese friends with pathetic Japanese sentences. I hope they’ll appreciate it.
If you have any experience with the studying of Japanese, feel free to share!
