Eric's 1st Day of School
Eric is currently at his first class of the semester. Woops, not anymore. made it as far as the pictures and now it's the next day. Ok, so let's back up. Eric had his first day of class yesterday and it's about Japanese history I believe focusing on one particular time period, seeing as their history is pretty long. Eric said he understood several words and that's about all for the 90 minute lecture. So, he talked with his professor after class about it and he'll be sending Eric his lecture notes before hand so he can learn the new kanji before class. Hope his Japanese language class goes better Monday.
I've had two Japanese lessons since my last blog and I know a little more Japanese. She's really working on my tone. Words fluctuate up and down and I'm not saying what I do know properly. So, not only do I have to know the words but I have to know how to say them. da DA da da. For example. It's a lot to remember, but Eric has it worse. He was taught to speak flat and now he's got to learn the correct tone for everything! I found out that the same word means two different things depending on how you say it. Kaki from low to high means persimmon but from high to low means oyster. How complicated!
Anyway, here are several pictures of the girls playing at the temp living facilities in Yokota just before leaving. It's almost a shame to do a post without some kind of picture. Pictures of the house soon!
