Elementary Class Day 23-26

The exam of the first semester finished. Summer Vacation 夏休み(なつやすみ)starts.

The exam was quite difficult. We were full of wounds, blood and sweat. Stocking of Kunoichi schoolmates were torn up, yet no tear on their eyes. We are brave ninja.

When Sensei was out of town, an alternative teacher taught us many new things:

あの方(あのかた)That guys
方(がた)etc (for people)
肉(にく)Meat
王(おう)Wong
熊(くま)Bear
上野(うえの)Ueno
布団(ふとん)Bedding
眼鏡(めがね)Glasses
高橋(たかはし)Takahashi
玉子(たまご)Egg
斉藤(さいとう)Saito
山下(やました)Yamashita
社長(しゃちょう)Director
ゴミ箱(ゴミばこ)Litter bin
冷蔵庫(れいぞうこ)Refrigerator
喫茶店(きっさてん)Cafe
凶暴な(きょうぼうな)Brutal
ソファー(SOFA)
スリッパ(SLIPPER)
ボーイフレンド(BOYFRIEND)
ガールフレンド(GIRLFRIEND)
熊出没注意(くましゅつぼつちゅうい)Be careful of bears
紀伊國屋書店(きのくにやしょてん)Kinokuniya Bookstore

If 何 is followed by a word in た行, だ行 or な行 then the prononciation is なん,
else it is なに.

The meaning of いえ and うち are similar. Yet the former is translated as HOUSE, while the latter is translated as HOME.

If things and animals are mixed in listing, がいます or があります depends on the last word followed. In other words, THINGとANIMALがいます and ANIMALとTHINGがあります.

When Sensei came back, she performed a great ninja magic: She drove a dophin 海豚(いるか)to view the nightscene 夜景(やけい)of Victoria Harbour. Romantic? This was the last relax before the difficult exam.

Schoolmates, see you in September.
