Kanjilicious is a mobile app to help students learn Japanese kanji by playing games with friends. My son Genji and I have the project on Kickstarter with 12 days to go. We could really use your support in making this app a reality. http://bit.ly/kanjikick

このグループのの富士山の絵を見ると、数年前で自分で作った詩が浮べてきます。

春の挨拶

弥生の腕に抱かれて、
新鮮に甦った自然。
山の雪白な衣
冬の最後の天然記念。

でも、外国人の物で、日本語で書いても「日本文化」といわれないでしょう。それでも好きなら、嬉しいです。

Through the years, #Japan has been tested with lots of natural disasters, including earthquakes, tsunamis and floods. However, despite what Japan has gone through, it is amazing to see how the country is still one of the most competitive economies in the world. In fact, just a few years after the Great Earthquake devastated the entire country, causing a catastrophic tsunami, Japan seems to have been able to bounce back—the greatly affected Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures are now back on their feet. #daytranslations

「いらす」は正しいですか?

「いらっしゃる」の代わりに「いらして」、「いらした」というような言葉がよく耳にする。
しかし辞書を調べたら、「いらす」という言葉は存在しません。
ということは「いらして」や「いらした」も存在しないことになりますし、正しい日本語としては使ってはいけないものになります。

しかしNHKのサイトを見たら、問題はないと言っている。
http://www.nhk.or.jp/bunken/summary/kotoba/term/135.html

これはとても納得できません。
辞書に存在しない言葉を使ってもいいということになってしまいます。
辞書や文法書を無視したら、正しいか間違いかの判断基準が崩壊してしまう。
辞書や文法書を無視したら、正しいかどうかの判断はどうやってすればいい?
判断が出来なくなってしまいます。

「いらす」という言葉は辞書に載せるべきかどうかはまた別問題である。
もし将来的に言語学者が「いらす」を辞書に挿入すべきと決めたら、「いらして」・「いらした」という活用語は正しくなります。

しかし現時点では「いらす」という言葉は存在しませんから、「いらして」・「いらした」は間違いとしか判断できません。

方言や訛り、話し言葉としては許すべきかも知れません。
しかし正しい日本語として、正しい書き言葉としては、辞書や文法書に反することですから、「いらして」・「いらした」は間違いとしか判断できません。

これについて皆様のご意見はいかがでしょうか?

いらっしゃる is the verb.
いらして and いらした are the more casual spoken versions of the correct
いらしゃって いらしゃった

How to Order Food in Japanese Without Looking Like a Fool

I was perplexed.

I’d ordered yakitori.

But what followed was a salad, vegetarian hotpot, and mixed rice with vegetables – and this was a famous yakitori restaurant.

Embarrassed, I ate what I could while wondering where I had gone wrong.

When I told my friend how I had ordered, she said it sounded a bit like I wasn’t happy with the menu.

So the restaurant staff thought I was a foreigner who didn’t like meat.

They’d taken pity on me and gave me a special vegetarian course.

I learned a big lesson – be careful what you ask for!

Learn Japanese With Movies: 10 Modern Classics for Japanese Learners

So you already like learning Japanese with dramas.

Another great way to improve your Japanese is to watch Japanese movies.

Of course, it’s not just about watching the movies.

To get the most out of them, you need to pay close attention, write down new words and phrases, and study.

But it’s much more fun than cramming vocabulary from a textbook, and that fun translates into more motivation to keep you going.

This is only from an english speaking communities point of view. My experience is the grammar of the European languages is much more difficult than Japanese and Korean.

こんばんは、
I really want to learn Japanese. However, there are not any classes or people to practice the language with. Given the group name, I figured others who are learning or know the language are on here. If so, would anyone mind helping me (I'm still a beginner, I suppose) as a language exchange partner or whatnot? If so: はじめまして。私はカテリンです。よろしくおねがいしますとありがと。

Aizuchi: A Beginner’s Guide to Japanese Grunting Etiquette

Did you know that grunting is a natural part of Japanese conversation?

There’s a lot at stake.

If you forget to utter that “un”, “hai!” or “sou?”, then your silence could be interpreted as lack of interest or even disagreement.

On the other hand, a well-placed “sou” could really go a long way in establishing rapport.

Hopefully, this post can help you get the most out of aizuchi.
