I just finished a japanese lesson.
This week (and last week) I was learning to count! I find it a bit difficult since in japanese you use diffrent words for diffrent things.
It is easy to learn the basic number words, they make a lot of sence. You learn one to ten and then its just "ten one" "ten two" ... then twenty is "two ten" and so on.
But it gets difficult because in japanese the words change for diffrent things like I said.
For thin things you use diffrent word than for person or dog or small things or bottle or food !!!!
So now I am trying to remember the diffrent endings to the numbers apropriate for diffrent things. I will get ... Someday ;)
To make it even more difficult every number has a kanji (japanese character), but I think I got those by now :)
But when you know the numbers it is easy to use them to learn how to talk about time for example.
Another thing they use the numbers for are the months. January is 一月 (ichi gatsu) which is just one month. Fenruary is 二月 (ni gatsu) which is two month. And on it goes. That makes it easy to learn the months :) The dates are a diffrent matter. Just like in English or Icelandic when you say first, second, or fyrsti, annar. It is also diffrent in Japanese and I am still learning to say it correctly.
So my next few days will look like this:
