Start Module 3, Lesson 7

We start a new Module this week! The next 3 lessons in our course focus on the home (いえ で)


From the left hand toolbar, navigate to Course Modules > Module 3 > M3.L7. Lesson 7: The different parts of the home: うち の いろいろ な ぶぶん


You will want to visit the following links under Lesson 7:


  • Overview
  • Grammar Notes
  • Vocabulary
  • Video, Audio, Japanese Text, English Translation


Take your time to carefully review the material. I recommend watching the video several times today and pausing after each line to repeat what was previously said aloud so you can practice your pronunciation.
