    I hope you'll find it useful for your study.
  • すごいサイト、ありがとう ^_^
  • "無 do not have"
    Yeah, right.

    And these are no "pronounciations" but "readings".
    And no "chinese style" or "japanese style". These are READINGS! Either 音読み or 訓読み.
  • Great site, i've bookmarked it. You really put a lot of work into explaining everything. Very clear and simple!

    I didn't expect that someone would read that page. I'm surprised.
  • Thanks for the site! I passed the link on to a friend who is studying Japanese.

    You're using your second language to teach your third language, and doing a good job of it - that is impressive.

    I notice also that your site contains a link where people can tell you about mistakes that they find; I hope people will use that in future instead of criticising you on here.

    This is interesting. From a Japanese's perspective, they are readings (読み方), like "日本語" is read as にほんご. But from a foreigner's perspectively, it is not different from "pronounciation", like "日本語" is pronounced as にほんご. Actually, according to Yahoo jisho, 読み方 is explained as 文字の発音のしかた or 漢字の発音.
  • Sorry for waking up an old post. But I have uploaded a free ebook for everyone to download. The title of the book is 500 Common English Loanwords in Japanese. It's a 11Mb monster (because of the audio file). And you need to use PDF reader 9 to open it.

    Direct download link is down. Please go to my website http://www.japanese-language.aiyori.org/ and send me a message via the contact form at the bottom of the front page. I will send the Ebook directly to your mailbox. (A Gmail account is strongly recommended)

    Please give them to your friends who are interested in learning Japanese even if you don't need to use copybooks anymore.

Howdy, Stranger!
