    Till Sunday, maybe you could kill some time practicing a Japanese tongue twister (はやくちことば, hayakuchi kotoba).

    This week, many children and adults enjoy coloring eggs where I live (=USA).

    One of the most famous Japanese tongue twisters is:

    なまむぎ なまごめ なまたまご
    Nama mugi, nama gome, nama tamago
    (Raw wheat, raw rice, raw eggs)

    How many times can you repeat the phrase?

    (I am usually good at this one, but not this morning.... I probably need more coffee.)

    Re: Latest Quiz

    The Pop Quiz Time ~

    Do you like sfx quizzes? Do you like Bleach?

    From a page of my Japanese Anime Comics (アニメコミックス AF/AT版) BLEACH, Ichigo goes (1) ふわぁぁ~..., then he makes the sound of (2) ボフッ, then Rukia makes a sound (3)スクッ, then Ichigo goes (4) ポリポリ

    What are they doing?

    ...............................................................

    (4/29/11)

    Just to let you know that I added a line to the quiz today: C was born in 1982. What year was he born? I plan to post the answers around May 1st. (I tend to go with EST.)

    If you have any suggestions for upcoming weekly/pop quizzes, please feel free to PM me. Again, you are always welcome to make pop quizzes with your answers in [spoiler].

    ...............................................
    Today's Proverb:

    猫に小判

    ねこにこばん
    Neko ni koban
    Giving money to a cat (a literal translation)
    Casting pearls before swine (English equivalent)
    To offer something valuable to someone who does not understand the value

    Vocabularies:
    * 猫=a cat
    * に=to
    * 小判= money (an oval gold/silver coin used during the 17th century Edo Period )

    Grammar: AにB = (Giving) B to A

    Yesterday, my cat begged when I was eating some shrimp. She begged and begged. She must have really wanted some, but would it really worth sharing my shrimp with her ...?


    Quiz (#2) answers are posted. (5/1/11)
    Please check the Quiz #2 and open [spoiler] to view the answers.
