Japanese notes – play with time in Japanese!

Yesterday I managed to go to my Japanese class again (YAY!๐Ÿ––) 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…๐Ÿ™ƒ), which definitely helped me practising my Japanese. Would love to keep doing it going forward.

Back to the topic around Japanese noteย โค๏ธ – this week’s class is around time – particularly about ‘how frequently’ and ‘how long’.

Key words:

  • How frequently – ไฝ•ๅ›ž (ใชใ‚“ใ‹ใ„)
  • How long – ใฉใฎใใ‚‰ใ„

So let’s see some example:

  • I work 5 times a week (which is quite sad๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ’”)/ ไธ€้€ฑ้–“ใซ 5ๅ›ž ๅƒใใพใ™ใ€‚
  • How many times do you work in a week?/ ไธ€้€ฑ้–“ใซ ไฝ•ๅ›ž ๅƒใใพใ™ใ‹ใ€‚
  • I work 8 hours a day (which is again really sad๐Ÿ˜ถ๐Ÿ˜ถ)/ ไธ€ๆ—ฅใซ 8ๆ™‚้–“ ๅƒใใพใ™ใ€‚
  • How long do you work a day?/ ไธ€ๆ—ฅใซ ใฉใฎใใ‚‰ใ„ ๅƒใใพใ™ใ‹ใ€‚

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.๐Ÿ’ A couple of vocalbury if you like

  • 1 minute: ไธ€ๅˆ†/ ใ„ใฃใทใ‚“
  • 1 hour: ไธ€ๆ™‚้–“/ ใ„ใกใ˜ใ‹ใ‚“
  • 1 day: ไธ€ๆ—ฅ/ ใ„ใกใซใก
  • 1 month: ไธ€ใ‹ๆœˆ/ ใ„ใฃใ‹ใ‘ใค
  • 1 year: ไธ€ๅนด/ ใ„ใกใญใ‚“

๐Ÿ‹ย Fun fact: so when we learnt how many/ how much, I asked a question: what’s the relationship between ใ„ใใ‚‰ and ใ„ใใค, as they both have ใ„ใ 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 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ… hmm interesting.๐Ÿ˜‡

      Hey sure!

      I would recommend that you take a class esp as a beginner to get a good (and right) feeling about the language; once you have some foundation you can decide whether you want to learn by yourself.

      Also watch Japanese animation/ drama if you can; that helps you pick up all the everyday words in Japan. You will soon pick up the most commonly used languages just by watching those stuff.

      Hope it helps.
