ならう A fun way to learn Japanese

20140117-133847.jpg

For Christmas I received this nice little heart shaped chalk board. I thought I would put it to good use by writing a new word in Japanese each day. Today I used the word for stone and soap because they use the same kanji. I hope with this I can build my vocabulary up(and so my fiancé can pick up a few words too, hence the romaji), plus learn another 100 kanji this year(my New Years resolution).

    Very cute chalkboard, and a great way to use it 🙂 I always mess up the kanji for 石 and 右. I should be ashamed of myself 😉 I think I will try something similar. Thank you for the inspiration 😀

      I didn’t realize how similar it was at first, but then I was practicing my kanji and I got super confused for a moment. Also one I get confused with is 井 and 丼.

    Adorable chalkboard! Funnily enough, I also received a chalkboard for Christmas (in the shape of a swan 🙂 I was puzzling over the best way to display/use it, and I really like your idea. My kanji retention is terrible, so any reminder is a help. Thanks for the lovely post!
