This year university has been very busy. I haven’t studied English very much but I am studying to be an English teacher. Next year I want to go to Japan but I still don’t know what kind of thing I want to do. I want buy my ticket soon.
In Japan there are vending machine’s everywhere. You can buy hot and hold drinks. You can buy strong or weak coffee. When I was in Japan for the first time, I was very surprised when I saw hot coco, coffee and tea in the vending machine.
Canada doesn’t have many vending machines. When you find a vending machine it only has cold things.And you can only buy soda.
The first hot drink I bought from a vending machine in Japan was coco, I drank a lot. The chocolate taste was strong, the hot coco was very delicious and so when I am in Japan in the winter I buy hot coco from the vending machine.
I am maybe for two week I haven’t written on my blog. One week ago I was in Japan. This time was great the weather was good, I hung out with my boyfriend a lot and I also got to go to a hot spring. Ken’s boss is really nice because he invited me to many places. At those places I met many interesting people.
This trip was short but in the future I want to live in Japan. This year I will miss Japan and at the same time I am excited I to live in Japan next year.
In the future I want to write a lot of blog buts and also I want to do a lot of audio posts.
Please read and listen to my blog.
I also want share everyone’s stories. If you have stories, audio recordings and also pictures please let me know. Also please tell your friends about the blog.
Soon I will write more English posts. Please tell me what you want to study in English.
Every language has a different way of counting objects; the Japanese use counters. They are similar to English expressions such as “a cup of ~”, “a sheet of ~” and so on. There are a variety of counters, often based on the shape of the object.
When using a counter, pay attention to the word order. It is different from English order. A typical order is “noun + particle + quantity — verbs.” Here are examples:
Hon o ni-satsu kaimashita.
I bought two books.NOUN (hon) + PARTICLE (o) + NUMBER (ni) + COUNTER (satsu) + VERB.
Koohii o ni-hai kudasai.
Please give me two cups of coffee.
冊 – satsu – counter for books, e.g. magazines, books
杯 – hai – counter for liquid in cups, e.g. cups of tea, glass of water
YES, I REALISE THAT YOU’RE PROBABLY THINKING, AAAHHH THERE ARE GONNA BE…
