Also, I do hope I wasn't a bother at the last meeting. If I was, I sincerely apologize. I would still like to attend the meetings, but I need the password to do so... Who should I PM to ask for permission to attend the lessons (and the password)?

I don't think you were a bother.
I just sent you the password and will be sending mcfate the password right now.. (welcome mcfate ^_^)

Thanks, Valatunda, shoCk_x! :) I hope the e-mail arrives in time, yahoo has a nasty habit of delaying my mail... :S I'm guessing the meeting starts at half past? :) I'll try to get there as soon as I can.

RE: Sunday's Meeting

Postby Rypermanji » Sun 06.17.2007 11:35 pm

Ok, I'm very upset right now, I just wrote a novel of a post and I wasn't signed in and apparently I lost my entire entry ; ;;; Anyways, I think Sunday's lesson went very well. We went over turning verbs into ます form, conjugating the ます form to past, negative, and past negative forms, as well as the verb ある. We also learned about い adjectives and how to conjugate to the past, negative, and past negative. We didn't have time to get to な adjectives so that will be for next weeks lesson. Everyone seems to understand all of this very well and no one seemed ot have any problems except maybe Pixiegirl who is still learning her kana, but even still she understood most from what I understand. If anyone sees Pixiegirl please feel free to help her learn the rest of her kana, she could use some practice^^ For homework I gave 10 kanji, 50 vocabulary words, as well as review of our lesson on Sunday.

The 10 kanji are numbers 1-10, 一二三四五六七八九? Please learn the On readings and Kun readings for all of these kanjis. Here is a website where you can learn them from http://www.thejapanesepage.com/kanji/list.php?jlpt=4.

As well as learning the meanings and readings for these kanji, stroke order is very important. Here is a website that shows proper stroke order, (though you have to search a little for the kanjis), http://members.aol.com/rtdrpt/kanji/writutor.htm.

As for the 50 vocabulary words you are to know by Sunday, they can be found here, http://www.jlptstudy.com/4/index.html by clicking on Vocabulary. You should study 1-50. Knowing the kanji for them is not necessary but recognizing them is a plus^^.

If you need to look back at the lesson, the log can be found here, http://chat.thejapanesepage.com:5224/logs/2007.jlpt.4.kyuu@conference.chat.thejapanesepage.com/2007/06/17.html, although you have to scroll down quite a bit.

If anyone has any questions, I'm sure there will be people in the chat willing to help. If not write down your questions and we will answer them when we see you next.

The next meeting will be on Saturday, June 23rd at 8:30pm GMT. So you have a little less than a week to do the homework and study what you have learned.

Finally, I would like to say that everyone did a great job. You asked a lot of questions until you understood, and you made it easy for me to teach. Everyone keep up the good work and I'll see you next Saturday. がんばってください^^

P.S. Are there any requests on what we should learn next weekend? I know we will start by a little review and finish out adjectives with な adjectives. Does anyone have anything in particular they would like to learn? I was thinking if we had time perhaps going a little more into verbs, but I'm not sure if learning the simple conjugations is quite necessary yet or not. Please give me your feedback and we can figure out what to do next weekend.

And please....do your homework! This is for your own benefit. Join the chat and work together to remember it^^

I also made a table of conjugations for the benefit of the group. It includes na-adjective conjugations that we will go over next week, so if anyone wants to get a little bit ahead and/or study the conjugations we learned today, they may do so using this chart:

Click for it :3

I don't know how long tinypic lasts so I recommend you guys save this to your computer in case you lose the link and/or tinypic removes it from their servers.

Note: This is the same information that Valatunda put in the first post of the thread. That is where all the updates will go, so it's easier to access. I will put the same thing on a new post (like this one) though, because that way the thread will update, and everyone can see when the thread has new material by checking the 'Newest Threads' box on the navigation bar at the left side of the site.

//Update: Monday 2007/06/18

This the chat from yesterday.

Rypermanji has asked for the 音読み (おんよみ) and 訓読み (くんよみ) to be learnt for the following kanji as well as stroke order. Valatunda has linked to the appropriate pages for each kanji from http://japanese.about.com/. The basic rules for stroke order can be found here.

[url=http://japanese.about.com/library/blkod35.htm]充/url]

These are the links Rypermanji gave concerning kanji: http://www.thejapanesepage.com/kanji/list.php?jlpt=4 and http://members.aol.com/rtdrpt/kanji/writutor.htm

These have animated stroke order, but lack a handwritten style.

Make sure you do the homework to be more prepared for the lesson.

And on a personal note: I missed yesterday's meeting, because as some already know, i was busy studying for the exam i had this morning. I still have 2 more exams to do, but these ones will not interfere with the meeting's times, so i will be able to go for the rest of the meetings from now on.

So those 10 number kanji are for homework? But what are those 50 vocab. words that Ryper mentioned in this page? Are they for homework too?
