Yesterday I managed to go to my Japanese class again (YAY!🖖) and was really glad that there were more conversations with the teacher in the class
(I warm up slowly so took me a while to open myself…🙃), which definitely helped me practising my Japanese. Would love to keep doing it going forward.
Back to the topic around Japanese note ❤️ – this week’s class is around time – particularly about ‘how frequently’ and ‘how long’.
- How frequently – 何回 (なんかい)
- How long – どのくらい
So let’s see some example:
- I work 5 times a week (
which is quite sad😑💔)/ 一週間に 5回 働きます。
- How many times do you work in a week?/ 一週間に 何回 働きますか。
- I work 8 hours a day (
which is again really sad😶😶)/ 一日に 8時間 働きます。
- How long do you work a day?/ 一日に どのくらい 働きますか。
Basically it’s very straight forward pattern. Not so much hard stuff but I don’t mind practising in the class over and over again as long as I am speaking.🍒 A couple of vocalbury if you like
- 1 minute: 一分/ いっぷん
- 1 hour: 一時間/ いちじかん
- 1 day: 一日/ いちにち
- 1 month: 一か月/ いっかけつ
- 1 year: 一年/ いちねん
🍋 Fun fact: so when we learnt how many/ how much, I asked a question: what’s the relationship between いくら and いくつ, as they both have いく in common. The teacher looked up for me and apparently that’s a bit old way of saying ‘counting/ numbering’. So I did a search on my app and found out below 😱… hmm interesting.😇
