New on the LinguaLift blog: How to pronounce Japanese – The basics

Do you have words you like just because the pronunciation is interesting?

http://buff.ly/1sATUkZ
Japanese is relatively easy to pronounce for English speakers because we have almost all of the sounds in English. The only problem is that if you make one slight mispronunciation, you're not likely to be understood. This is why it's important to make sure you're pronouncing it correctly.

It's something you'll definitely need to use in Japan - Numbers in Japanese.
Do you have a favourite number in Japanese or something you find difficult to count?

Whether you’re going to Japan, or just your local sushi-ya, you’re bound to use numbers. Learn how to count in Japanese in this blog post.

Kokuji (国字) – Kanji that’s made in Japan.
Read about them on the LinguaLift blog: http://buff.ly/1iaX3pV
While writing came to Japan from China and Chinese characters are used in Japanese, there are native Japanese characters called Kokuji (国字).

Japan has many different cafes where you can enjoy a light meal in the company of adorable animals. But other than the usual cat, dog or rabbit cafe, there's also owl cafes. Read about them in our new blog post.

Would you go to one? Or if you have, share your experience with us!

If you want to experience something out of the ordinary, give owl cafes in Japan a try. Enjoy a cup of coffee or a light meal while an owl hovers over you. If you're lucky, you can even touch them.

New on the LinguaLift blog: Best free iPhone apps for navigating the Tokyo train system

Have you used these apps before? What apps do you use?

http://buff.ly/1kdTImF
Unless you're a master navigator and/or a fluent reader of Japanese kanji, the Tokyo train map is bewildering. You might wonder how on earth people find their way around here. The locals do it with the help of train finder apps but until recently these apps have been in Japanese.

Have you encountered or experienced being part of the senpai-kohai system?

Read about it at the LiguaLift Blog: http://buff.ly/1nzVbrQ
In Japan, the senpai-kohai system underlies nearly all relationships. It is present in schools, offices, clubs and in almost any group setting.
