Soft gerbera 1 by FrancescaDelfino

I have three words- I LOVE THIS!!!! What a great way for me to already celebrate a perfect day! :icontearyguyplz: i love everything about this picture-...


This article, one about particle も and we're done with our extremely basic stuff (there are still 2 extra particles, but that comes after the fun bits :B ) But it'll be long, so yeah- stay tuned! :wow:

Today we'll be doing extra time stuff; mainly because 2 lessons just weren't enough, were they? :x Well, carry on if you have the guts! :iconsuperlaplz:

:sun: Dates :sun:
Okay in Japanese, ordinals are INCREDIBLY complicate.... diverse so we have different kinds. But this one I'm doing with you is just to do with days; birthdays, anniversaries, etc. So yeah, here goes!


From there on, it goes like normal, except for the 20th, which is not にいじゅにち, but はつか. RIP Logic. :no: BTW, The word for 'dates' is 日; the word for 'days' is ’ようび’.

:icongalaxyplz: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow :icongalaxyplz:

Now will be times passed and passing. The basics-:

:moon: きのう- Yesterday
:sun: きょう- Today
:sun: :moon: あした- Tomorrow.

Easy, right? :D Now comes the complicated-er bits (but you can do it! :iconcheerplz: )
:iconstarplz: にち :iconstarplz:

おととい- Day before yesterday

あさって- Day after tomorrow

:iconch1plz: :iconch1plz: がつ :iconch1plz: :iconch1plz:

せんげつ- Last month
らいげつ- Next month

:iconpinkbow2plz: :iconpinkbow2plz: ねん:iconpinkbow2plz::iconpinkbow2plz:
さくねん- Last year
らいねん- Next year

So, to say your birthday it goes like this-:

To tell when exactly you were born, it goes like this-:

Year-Month-Day. Get the drift? Good! :highfive:

:iconmh4plz: :iconmh5plz: :iconmh3plz: Other use of Particle に :iconmh4plz: :iconmh5plz: :iconmh3plz:

So I taught you guys before; に is used to show where something is. Well, it has another use related to days; WHEN someone is doing something-:

わたしたちはにちようびに18さいなります。 :iconcakeplz: We're becoming 18 on Sunday

13日にかれはともだちのいっしょスイスへいきます。 :iconplaneplz: On 13th, he's going with his friends to Switzerland

あさってにわたしのたんじょうびにあります! :iconcakeplz: It's my birthday day after!

:icondivider0: :icondivider1: Years and how to say them :icondivider1: :icondivider2:

Speaking can be tricky, so I'll break down stuff for you. Now saying your year, hell writing it is tough, so to make it easy; just break it up like any other number-:


That's my actual birth-year. Now HOW do we say this mouthful in Japanese... the year?
1 9 9 7.
Firstly 1000s-: せん
100s; きゅうひゃく
10s-: きゅうじゅうなな

There are no 'ands' in between, just say it like this- 'Base # 1000, Base # 100, then the 2 digit # (tw, # also means 'number' :o )' You cool? :D

Yeah, we're done. Summary-:

:bulletred: Add 日 after a number to show it is a date; aka any number <32.
:bulletred: Prefix らい means after; so put that before 月、ねん to show the proceeding time
:bulletred: Particle に can also mean when one does something; structure-:
:bulletred: Sentence structure for birthdays-:

*- means 'born'. For exact details only.

Yup, done! See ya! :headbang:
Ich weiß nicht ob das euch Spaß macht oder so, aber ich bin keine Psychische; werde ich das niemals verstehen :iconsarcasticplz: Doch, wenn du willst, lies oder nicht. Hier gibt es viel besser zu tun ;p

Eh? Bist du verloren oder so? Ach verdammt :facepalm:

:w00t: 日本語のほうこう :w00t:

Lies den Titel. Das bedeutet was ich grad' oben geschrieben hatte. Besser? ;p

Erstmal lernen wir die Himmelsrichtungen (grundlegenden)

きた :#1: Nord
にし :saddummy: Westen
 ひがし :shifty: Ost
 みなみ :nod: Süd

Wie man in anderen Sprachen es benützt, man benützt es nur für Landkarten usw. -:

きょうとはひがしにあります。 :iconlamppostplz: Kioto ist im Osten.

:iconwhiteroseplz: Allgemeine Richtungen :iconwhiteroseplz:

Stell dir vor dass ein Tourist zu dir ankommt und fragst du wo das Schloss/usw. ist; und du nur deine Arm zum einer Ort zeigt und sagst-:


So geht diese Wörter-:
こちら/こっち*- Diese Weg
そちら/そっち- Da/dort
あちら/あっち- So (weg)

Fragewort- どちら/どっち.

:eager: Die sind unterschiedlich von 'ここ、そこ、あそこ' weil 'ここ、そこ、あそこ' zeigt man wo genau etwas ist, während こっち、そっちとあっち zeigt man welche Weg etwas ist! :eager:

:nod: すみません、パンやはどこですか?

:nod: パンやはどこですか?

Das erste Satz bedeutet dass die Bäckerei IST DA; inzwischen das zweite Satz bedeutet dass die Bäckerei ist in DAS WEG; es ist nicht in der Nähe, aber wenn man danach geht, wird er/sie es finden.

:icongreenroseplz: Normale Richtungen. :icongreenroseplz:
Wie ironisch, die Farbe :giggle: Diese Richtungen sind für normale Sache; wie die Controls in Video-spielen.
みぎ- rechts
ひだり- links
上- oben/ober

みぎ、みぎとひだり。はい、そうでしょう! :icongamerplz: Rechts,rechts und dann links. Ja, genau so!

So sind wir vorbei :B Zusammenfassung-:

:bulletblue: Himmelsrichtungen きた、みなみ、にし、ひがし. Nur für Landkarten und so.
:bulletblue: Allgemeine Richtungen; こちら、そちら、あちら。
:bulletblue: *こっち、そっち、あっち sind nicht förmlich, so nicht mit den die eure Freunden nicht sind.
:bulletblue: Normale Richtungen-みぎ、ひだり、うえ、した. Für was man jeden Tag macht.

Ja, fertig! :iconyaayplz: Viel Spaß! :wave:
We're gonna do this fast because it requires really little, if you ask me. Yo, peeps and welcome to our next lesson! :headbang: We're gonna make this fast, because well... it requires very little! Today we do directions. How cool is that? :squee:

Nothing yet? :| Well, I have good news; because you learned に; this will be a piece of cake, just replacing some terms with these words! Ain't that great? :highfive:

  :nod: 日本ごのほこ :nod:
That meant 'Directions of Japanese Language'. There are 4 geographical directions, which are....

きた :#1: North

にし :saddummy: West
ひがし :shifty: East

みなみ :nod: South

That's cleared for you :) Now those are your cardinal directions, excluding the whole 'northwest, southeast' etc. stuff; I'll deal with that when I learn them myself ;p Now for a more generalized way; do you remember people asking you where the Times' Square/London Eye/Brandenburg Gate is & you'd point your fingers and say 'that way'?

 こちら- This way
そちら- That way
あちら- Far out there.

Question word- どちら?

Yeah, that covers it. Take an example to practice-:

すみません、でも。。あなたはエッフェル塔’(Eiffel Tower) をわかるか?




Colloquial ways of saying the words are-: こっち、そっち、あっち、どっち。

Long sentences-:

はなやはあちらがいます。 :iconflowerplz: Florist is in that direction.

かれはそっちがいます。 He is in that direction (you'll find him there)

とうきょうーとはどちらですか? Where is Tokyo Tower?

:iconwhiteroseplz: Difference between -こ、 and -ちら words :iconwhiteroseplz:

Now why did we learn that? :stinkeye: Differences are quite large you see. Take words あそこ and あちら.-:
あそこ means 'over there', but あちら means 'in that direction' which means if I say someone あそこにいます means that said person IS THERE, but if I say someone はあちらです, it means I know he/she WENT in THAT DIRECTION but that's about it.

For non geographical directions; such as left and right-:

 みぎ- right
ひだり- left
うえ- up
した/か- down

Yeah that's it. Summary-:

:bulletpurple: Geographical directions are-:ひがし、にし、きた、みなみ. They are used in extreme specifications, like maps.
:bulletpurple: To just say 'this/that way', use こちら、そちら、あちら。 Slangish ways-: こっち、そっち、あっち。
:bulletpurple: Normal directions like 'left, right, etc' みぎ、ひだり、うえ、した
:bulletpurple: To ask which directions, say どちら、どっち
:bulletpurple: Sentence structure-:

Generalized 'this/that way'

Geographical directions-:


The other directions can be used mainly as commands. There is another way for that... but once I know it; I'll tell you :)

Done! Have fun! :headbang:
Hallo, Leute! :wave: Federn sind schön! :w00t: :iconfeatherplz: Ehh.... wo waren wir? :? Ah.. da! :D

Diesmal lernen wir etwas anders :party: Ein Ausdruck, ist das geil oder so? :squee: Nicht ein Sprichwort, doch :( noch kenne ich keins ^^; , nur etwas zu deine Meinung betonen.... ich glaube das ganz nützlich ist, was geht mit euch denn? :woohoo: Besonders nach der letzter Lektion... ich glaube das wird für euch ganz entspannend sein ;)

Übrigens, wenn wir viel besser in Japanisch sein würden, werde ich die Lektionen bald nur im Japanisch schreiben :psychotic: So.... warum nicht; wir können nun 'nen bisschen Training nehmen;







:woohoo: に は :woohoo:
:clap: :clap: :clap:

Es ist ausspricht als 'ni WA' ; genau wie Partikel は ausspricht ist. :nod: Es erzählt man dass das Subjekt/Objekt nur in die bestimmten Ort ist, und nirgendwo sonst, deshalb solche Betonen.

こうえんにはこどもがいます。 :iconloliplz: :iconshotaplz: Nur im Parks gibt es Kinder. (nirgendwo sonst)

火曜日にはしけんがあります。 :iconpaperplz: Im Dienstag WIRD ein Prüfung passieren.

毎日に七時はんにはわたしたちはゆうしょくをたべる*。 :iconsushiplz: Jeden Tag um 19:30 Uhr essen wir unsere Abendessen. (Bestimmt, es nie sich verändern wird)

*Eigentlich die letzte Satz ist ein bisschen zu spezifisch, aber ja; die Japanischen werden euch verstehen.

:#1: Ausdruck 'に は’ erzählt man dass jemand/etwas nur da sind; die bestimmten Ort wo sie immer sind. :#1:

Als ich hatte euch gesagt, wir können das auch für Zeit benützen, aber es gibt am besten mit 'Orten' -:

りんごはかばんにはあります。 :iconappleplz: Bestimmt gibt es Äpfel in der Tasche.

ミサきーちゃんはきょうしつにはがいます! Misaki ist definitiv im Klassenzimmer.

:eager: Nur sag das zu jemandem wenn du selbst sicher ist; wo etwas/jemand ist!

Ja... vorbei! Zusammenfassung-:

:bulletblue: 'には' ausspricht als 'ni WA'
:bulletblue: Es bedeutet 'etwas/jemand bestimmt hier/da ist'.
:bulletblue: Man kann auch es für Zeit benützen; meistens doch es gibt für Orten
:bulletblue: Satzstellung-:


Ja, wir sind vorbei! :iconyaayplz: Viel Spaß dabei! :wave:

Long Adoring Note

Fri Mar 20, 2015, 6:54 AM by AbstractWater:iconabstractwater:
Dear my watchers and public,

I want you to know a few things right now.  Having stayed on this site for 3 years, since I was 15; I really feel proud to be part of this place. :happybounce: How I got here? It all started with staring at Pokemon pics. And there were SO many talented artists who I felt deserved so much praise. At first I resisted, but then I agreed to self; i must join this 'deviantart' website. And you know what? I haven't regretted it a bit! :dalove:

By far, one of my BEST decisions of my life! I me some people online who proved to me that the Internet can also be awesome. I made cool friends, and learned a lot. Complete strangers have stuck up for me when trolls pissed me off; and I got the favour in return when I least expected it ( :iconthe-insane-puppeteer: Thanks so much for the premium membership gift you gave me! I still remember it to this day :love: )

I heard a lot of shit about this place online- saying it was laden with deranged perverts.... well I sure am blessed then, not having met any ;) Thank you guys so much for being so awesome! I hope you guys stay awesome, and I'll send you my love somehow. :) You'd be so damn surprised, how much small gestures would help; from wishing on birthdays to telling someone you care; damn right you'd be! :iconhappytearsplz:

It's because of you guys that I am so intensely into photography, or that I draw; just to feel glad that both you and I can be happy seeing new stuff each day. Relax! I'm not leaving! :ohnoes:

Just thought of doing this now :aww:

So, good luck with everything and God/Goddess/Science bless you! :innocent: :iconsweethugplz:
