Rinkya Japanese Flashcards: grammar flashcard “sou desu”

flashcard, japanese, japan, japanese flashcard, rinkya, rinkya japan, learn japanese, grammar, japanese grammar, japanese grammar flashcard, grammar flashcard

Are you collecting all Rinkya Japanese flashcards? Good! Today we are going to learn “sou desu,” a grammar structure that expresses appearance. For example, if you want to say “It looks like it’s going to rain” you can use it. 雨が降るそうです。”Ame ga furusou desu.” How do we use it?

When you use it with a verb you just put sou after the verb in dictionary form.
雨が降るそうです。Ame ga furusou desu.
It looks like it’s going to rain.

When you use it with a “i” adjective, you take out the last “i” and put “soudesu” instead.
楽しそうです。Tanoshisou desu.
It looks funny.

When you use it with a “na” adjective, then you just add “soudesu.”
きれいなそうです。 Kireinasou desu.
It looks beautiful.
Note: kirei-na is a “na” adjective.

Rinkya Japanese Flashcards: “Japan travel lingo”

flashcard, japanese, japan, japanese flashcard, rinkya, rinkya japan, learn japanese, japan travel

And this is our last mini Japan travel lingo flashcard. You can use Rinkya Japanese flashcards to learn Japanese in a funny way. Today we’re going to talk about the seasons in Japan!

四季 Shiki: the four seasons. This is just to start rolling with the topic in hand today.

梅雨 Tsuyu: the rainy season. Going to Japan during the rainy season isn’t a good idea. You’ll get lots of rain and provably even taifoons. So, better to go during other seasons.

蒸し暑い Mushiatsui: hot and humid. This an adjective usually used during summer time. Japan during summer time is incredibly humid and hot. So, if you are going to travel to Japan during the summer time, prepare lots of cotton clothing, comfortable shoes, and take in mind to go around with a bottle of water. You need to drink a lot (you can find tons of konbinis around, so that wouldn’t be a problem).

季節 Kisetsu: season. It just means the seasons.

地震 Jishin: earthquake. It might happen that while you are travelling around Japan you might feel an earthquake. Just don’t panic! Follow the rules that you’ll be given at your hotel, or ask for what to do upon arrival.

We follow up with our short Japan travel lingo series. This time we have some words related to the house/ hotel. Let’s start!

屋根 Yane: roof. If you are staying in a house of a friend, or if you decide to rent an apartment or traditional house, odds are that you’ll take a close look to the roof. Roofs in Japan can be very curious.

和室 Washitsu: Japanese-style room. A room with tatami. If you go to Japan, I highly recommend you to try the traditional Japanese style room. Bamboo really smells good!

台所 Daidokoro: kitchen. It is unlikely that you’ll use your own kitchen if you go to a hotel. But if you rent an apartment you’ll use one.

住宅 Juutaku: house/ home. “Juutaku” simply means house. You can find this word in documents where they wnat you to add your address.
