Start Module 2 Lesson 5 Today
We start a new module this week: わたしのまち1 (My Town 1)
From the left hand toolbar, navigate to Course Modules > Module > M2. L5. Lesson 5 to see this week's materials
You will want to visit the following links under Lesson 5 today:
- Video, Audio, Japanese Text, English Translation
You'll also want to carefully review the lesson 5 vocabulary and grammar notes. Links below for easy references.
Take your time to carefully review the material. I recommend watching the video below several times today and pausing after each line to repeat what was previously said aloud so you can practice your pronunciation.
Using かい To Count Floors
In lesson 3, you learned that 回 (かい) was used to indicate the number of “times” something happens. Though the pronunciation as well as spelling in hiragana is the same, note that the kanji used to write these counters are different.
The counter 階 (かい) indicates the number of a floor in a building (1st floor, 2nd floor, 3rd floor, etc.). Please also note that the 3rd floor is pronounced さんがい.
