Elementary Class Day 14

Sun Zi said that three critical factors of strategy are Weather & Timing 天, Geography 地 and People 人. Sensei taught us so many items about weather.

夏至(げし)は1年(いちねん)で一番(いちばん)日(にち)が長い(ながい)日(ひ)です。
Geshi is the day with the longest daytime.

良い(いい)
Good

悪い(わるい)
Bad

晴れ(はれ)
Sunny

曇り(くもり)
Cloudy

雨(あめ)
Rain

雷(かみなり)
Thunder

台風(たいふう)
Typhoon

霧(きり)
Fog

雪(ゆき)
Snow

Due to different weathers, ninja wear different clothes in order to maximize their defence.

カジュアル
Casual

履(くつ)
Shoe

スカート
Skirt

In addition to the above basic knowledge, we continued teamwork training (as you have seen in movie, ninja work in group rather than alone).

上司(じょうし)
Boss

簡単(かんたん)
Simple

発表(はっぴょう)
Present

毎日(まいにち)
Everyday

本当に(ほんとうに)
Really

他には(ほかには)
Anything else?

忘れました(わすれました)
I forgot

何人(なにじん)ですか
What people is it?

何人(なんにん)ですか
How many people is there?

As you see in the last two sentences, two same sentences can represent two different meanings. There are many secrets inside the ninja society.
