About This Class


Basic Japanese 1 is the first course in the "Basic Japanese" series by Courtney R. In this course, I'll be teaching from chapter 1 of the Genki textbook, including grammar, vocabulary, and culture points.  During each lesson, I break everything down using easy-to-understand jargon, then I follow up with examples and activities. At the end, there is a final exam that will require you to really put what you've learned to the test! This course is best suited for individuals that are new to the language.

1. Introduction: Hello, everybody. Welcome to basic Japanese one. This is a course that's going to be based on the Yankee one textbook. In this course, I will be teaching you some basic Japanese grammar new vocabulary words. And at the end there will be an application styled exam you can follow, along with the basic Japanese one workbook, which will be attached with this course completely free of charge. However, because the course is based off of the Yankee text, you can also feel free to follow along with your textbook and workbook. As always, you can also find me at pair pair dreams dot com, and on that website there are additional resource is tips and tricks to learning the language and more. I'm also available on social media, Instagram and Facebook at pair Pair of Dreams. You should also check out my YouTube channel at no free catnip, where I've started a series called Tricky Japanese, where I explained some of the difficult aspects of the language as well as on that channel . I talk about my own personal journey as language learn on that note, I'm going to end it here, and I look forward to seeing you in less than one. My funding 2. Lesson 1: Hello, everybody. And welcome to lessen won. The title of this lesson is ex watch. Why this? So this lesson is going to be about this type of grammar point in the way that it goes is ex watch. Why this so X represents thes subject of the sentence. The subject of a sentence is almost always going to be followed by while this is the thing that is pretty much being emphasized. It tells you that we're specifically talking about X. And then why is the word that describes X? So before I really get any further into it, I do want to go ahead and mention that, yes, this character is huh? But when this character is used for grammar, it is actually pronounced walk. So you have to be careful with that when you're kind of new to speaking Japanese. Um, and you're reading and you're seeing this character. Um, even in the world, corny, it is spelled using this watt combo lock also spelled using the particle while not the actual character one. And don't worry, this is something that, um as you learn Japanese, this is actually going to be one of the easier hurdles hurdles to get over. So, uh, moving forward, ex watch. Why this X is why, in this first example in English we have cats are animals. Obviously, cats are going to be the subject. So cats in Japanese is what's gonna come before what cats are being described as animals. And so where Why is the thing that's describing cats it that's gonna be animals and Japanese. So here, in the vocabulary words, I'm gonna go ahead and read them because I know that some of you are still learning he Donna. And although I will not be using any remedy, I will go ahead and read the characters for you. So cat or cats in Japanese is nickel. No animals, though, but don't know boots? No, But so think about it. Katz goes here because that's the subject. It's being emphasized specifically cat we're talking about cats are animals, doled animals. And it's gonna look like this NEC oa Dover to this Neco Wow, though. But this cats are animals. Um, also before I move on, Yes, I am, uh it might seem like a bit much, but yes, I am throwing condi at you now. Mind you on the previous slide, I showed you the rating of these country characters. I personally believe that similarly to learning the conduct characters. The only way you're really going to learn kanji is by kind of just eliminating Khanna where it's not necessary. So I will never throw a Condi at you that you've never seen before. But if you do see a Condi during the duration of a lesson and you don't know how to read it and you don't see any hero Ghana characters above it, that means that I've showed the reading and I'm leaving it up to you to either remember or to go back and look it up. It's our next example. He is tall. Who's the subject he is? How is he being described tall? The word for he in Japanese is caught. It caught it And the word for tall as in height is segue up. Kite say I got back. I so the full sentence in Japanese is qat a wa Sega pack. I this hopefully that's making sense. So wow, ex watch Why that this X is white. So one more example Here, Um, that is a pencil that is a pencil the subject is that we're emphasizing that that thing, that thing specifically it is a pencil. So the vocabulary words to say, just realized the extent it said example to wear on example Three. Um, soda is for that soul. That and pencil in pizza. So So there. What in pizza? This and this is what it looks like. So they want in pizza This So now here is an example for you to try. Uhm, I'm going to show you three examples. Then I'm going to give you the opportunity to pause the video and then I'm going to give you the answers. So what I'm going to do first is I will read the vocabulary words like I said for the people who are still studying Kana and may have some difficulty. Um, reading. So biology is difficult Biology and Japanese se but got good se boot to God. Difficult in Japanese Is Kashi Mousa Kashi next example Company workers are busy company workers in Japanese. Hi shine Kat, eat shop, eat Kai shine busy and Japanese. He's so Gosse e so God, she eat. And finally, kittens are tiny. Doesn't love kittens. A lot of people a lot of people don't like cats anyway. Um, kittens and Japanese quote Neco hornickel. So call and tiny and Japanese would be t e saw eat cheese site. So go ahead and pause here. And when you come back, I'll be showing you with The answers are all right. So the answers are shown here, and yes, I as you can see those con jeer here No heat are gone above them. I'm going to read them though out loud, so you don't have to go back and look for their readings. So number one if you got it, correct, It should say, Say boots. Cocula Mitsukoshi, this number two should say hi, shine Wa s Oh, gosh, she this and number three should say Kolnik oa cheese, I this So if you didn't get those answers, please go to the community tab on skill share and let me know what answers you did get. Maybe I'm explaining something a little bit all for maybe there's just something really simple that you're missing. So definitely leave a comment under the community section. And if you don't have any questions on even if you do, I will see you in the next one 3. Lesson 2: Hello and welcome to listen to the title of this lesson is none. Nanny, disco and no. So before we begin, I'm going to give you a quick pop quiz and this is how I want you to do it. Take 30 seconds to answer as many of these as you can without looking back at anything. All of these words came from the previous lesson, and I do believe that they're all included in the workbook. So I want you to answer as many of these as you can in 30 seconds. Then I want you to take 30 more seconds and answer on Lee the ones that you didn't already get. Don't do any double checking. Take one minute to take this quick pop quiz. And when you're done watching this lesson, then you can go back and double check your answers. So go ahead and pause the video here. So the first grammar point that we're going to talk about is nonny nonny disco. When I say 90 money, it's because this symbol here represents nonny nonny. It's kind of like saying something, something in English. So this grammar point is all about adding cop to the end of statements to make them into questions or creating questions by adding this cop instead of just this at the end of a sentence. So an example I have here here is a sentence that's already been made, and we can change it into a question. It says, Jeez Oh, uh, we she this tcisa What toys? She This cheese is delicious. Also, notice that it's using that walk and this form that we just learned in the last lesson. Now, if we wanted Teoh ask someone if they think Jesus delicious, we could add call to this sentence and it becomes cheese. 00 Is she this calm? Is cheese delicious? As I said before, this car altogether is what you would use when you want to make a statement. So not we're not just going to talk about sentences that are already made, and you're switching them into questions. But when you want to make a question statement on your own instead of ending it in this you ended in this cop. Here are some examples, some common examples. Actually, the 1st 1 Corella, none discard Corella non this car. What is this? The next one says Bengal. She this car Bengal she this car Now, if you notice here I have in parentheses. Are you a lawyer? This word Bingle. She actually just means lawyer. The are you A part has to be implied based on context. And this isn't something that I will actually dive into in these basic courses. This is more so, something that I will mention in, um, I will mention again and again, but in a lot of Japanese sentences, the subject may be omitted and understanding who or what. The subject is something you have to do using context. But again, I do kind of go into this just a little bit in the many course, the introduction to Japanese grammar. Many course, but I don't want to ramble too much on that. So the last example sentence here says I me May God ski vet Scott Annie made a ski this car . Do you like honey? May and again, do you is in parentheses because in this sentence, it just asks enemy like and do you and desk are. But now it doesn't say you specifically on a path. So our next grammar point is, um, now, no, now this So no has many uses uses. But in this course, we're going to use it to connect to now downs. So now, no. Now this changes a regular now into its possessive form. So the second now belongs to the first. Now in some way, shape or form belonging doesn't mean that it physically is that the first now physically owns it. So not just talking about people and their items. But let's say a certain now is specific to another certain now, such as cat food. Then the word cat would be the first now and food would be the second that way, you know that this food is specifically for cats. Now, speaking on Lee owned speaking Onley in terms of people, um, we can take our words here and change them into their possessive form so he can become hiss . She can become her or hers, and I can become my So I'm going to go ahead and read these. He is Cut it. She is con Ojul and I watched as she so remember these. These are actually very common words and I would strongly recommend making it a goal to actually memorize them. in Condi. So I have some examples here. Just like I mentioned before. Cat food. I have here dog food. So E knew no habimana this. So by looking at this No, you can decode the sentence by knowing. Okay, dog food. Well, the first now must be dog because it's not foods dog dogs that belong to food. Um, that'd be weird. It has to be food that belongs to dogs. Food that is specific to dogs. Um, using it in an entire sentence here. That is his car. Sorry, Wa Carreno. Kumar, This. Now, this might seem a little more tricky because this sentence is longer. But now that you're starting to understand basic Japanese grammar, it looks like the sentences longer. But there's just one more particle. So instead of Sony Wachootoo mark this or soda Wachati. This, um, car? No. Kuma is being used as a whole. His car is being used to describe what that specifically is That car Specifically it belongs to him. So so that you're still using the what? This form. It's just here instead of one word, your connecting two of them so soda cardinal could amount this. That is his car and finally, my bedroom. What does she know? Hey, had this so that was a lot more simple. Now, I also want to mention that these are perfect opportunities to make questions. So all of the sentences that I gave before all I did was at a cot to the end of it. And these translations are a little more literal. But perhaps, you know, you would say, Is this dog food? You know, top Imano, this car is this dog food? Um sort of are called Khar in Oklahoma. This car is that his car? And finally, why don't you know you have this calm? Is this my bedroom? So no is commonly used, as I said before, to kind of link to things that are specific to each other. So the first example Here's Tokyo University student Cho killed I Goku No, Gac said this so specifically a student at Tokyo University. If you want to say a Japanese movie a movie from Japan, the whole No a got this. So it's not just a movie. It is a movie that it's specific to Japan, a Japanese movie and middle school teacher to rock, you know, since a this so not just a teacher, but a teacher that specifically is in that teaches middle school. So I hope that explanation helps you to understand how the particle no can be used to link to announce. So here are some examples. I will go ahead and read the Khanna below. For those who were still studying Khanna, I will read it out loud for you. Um and I have one more page where I will have some more examples for you and then I'll give you an opportunity to pause the video and come back for the answers. Also words with an asterisk. Don't worry about trying to translate it into Japanese or saying it with a Japanese accent for now. So I'm gonna go through all of the words in the word bank. Um I'm going to go just a little bit quickly, but hopefully not too fast. All right, Okaz on mom. Okay, Awesome. Can model See con Ojul. Ted A b PB Ted A B You knew dog e news. Cut it. He cut it. Gac say student gac say I part the apartment Apartado Why pass? She I What does she Ma? Who don't know, You know, McDonald's not a good doughnut adore. So here are some more. Just three more examples for you to try. And in the word thank you have code oy, which means black and old key, which means huge. So go ahead and pause the video here. If you have to go back a little bit to the other questions, go ahead and come up with your answers. You can write them down for yourself, or you can type your answers in the community tap and so pause the video here. All right, so let's go into the answers. So for the 1st 6 I'm just going to read the answers out loud and Mark if you got them right or wrong. Number one Kelly saw no focus on this to Carmel Journal. PDB this three Cardinal. He knew this four. Ohio Die Goku No, Cox said this five. Why? Because you know a part of this six. Marco Donna Rudo, No CEO. And for the last three, number one Kelly Sano Okano, Sanwa Ohio Digger Kunonga said this number two can O Donnell Terry. Bela Karolyi. This number three I didn't know you knew our okie this so those are the answers, just like before. If you have questions, if you don't understand, you can always re watch this video. Or you can ask me questions in the community tab, and on that note, I will see you in the next one. 4. Lesson 3: Hello, everybody, and welcome to lessen three. The title of this lesson is Dekom time. So before I continue, I want to go ahead and let you know that in order to successfully complete this lesson, you will know you will need to know how to count in Japanese because we're talking about time. That clearly means we're gonna talk about numbers. So I have a couple of options for you here. If you aren't really familiar with how to count in Japanese, The first option is to take my introduction to Japanese four course where I come, I specifically focus on numbers. Um, and your other option is to go to pare pare dreams dot com slash worksheets and download this counting to 100 Japanese worksheet. Believe it or not, it is a lot more simple than it may seem to count in Japanese. But not understanding the basics of how to count is going to make it a bit difficult because, um, counting time is just like something on top of already knowing the numbers. That's not to say that you can't study this lesson and maybe rewatch it a few times, but I just want to let you know now that you may have a hard time keeping up if you do not already know how to count, it is possible, though, for you to specifically just download this website, this website, this worksheet and follow along using it and it will help you to, um, get through this lesson. So that's my disclaimer. And now we can go ahead and get started. Counting hours in Japanese is very similar to just counting one through 12. If you use 12 hour time and, um, one through 23 if you're using 24 hour time and please excuse those sounds in the background, that is my cat. She believes that my my chair is a scratching post and that's my fault. Um, also, before I get into actually ringing these vocabulary words out loud, these numbers out loud, I do want to go ahead and tell you that, um, the care the character G is represented by this conjure character. And so Onley on this slide, Are you really going to see g type in Hit are gonna This is a character that I think it's best that you learn right away. So now I'm gonna go ahead. I've done enough, uh, warnings and things like that. I'm ready to move forward. We're ready to move forward. So I'm going to start count. I'm going to count. Uhm, I'm going to read how to count the hours. So also these numbers by themselves is like saying the number o clock. So when they're by themselves in their no minutes behind them it's just that time itself with no minutes. So for example, one o'clock e t t to needy three o'clock Sandy four oclock is actually Yoji, not Yongji. Five oclock bulgy six o'clock. Doku Gee, seven o'clock. Not Maggie. You can choose to say she g g and that's perfectly correct as far as I know. Eight oclock huggy nine o'clock cookie 10 o'clock Judy 11 oclock Julie TD and 12 o'clock June needy. And it would continue like this for 24 hour time. So for example, 1300 hours would be do Sanji 1400 hours However, would be do yoji, not Giuliani de junio. Gee, minutes, on the other hand, are a little more tricky minutes and in our so minutes are basically your numbers. Some of them are very kind of altered, and they're either going to end in front or boom. Um so I'm going to read all of them by theirselves similar to the hours by theirselves. It just means just minutes. So if you were counting the minutes as in a time span, you will leave these, as they are to say, a certain amount of minutes. So one minute would be it. Boom. Two minutes. We food three minutes. Sample four minutes younger. Five minutes. Goater, six minutes. Don't book seven minutes. Not not eight minutes happen. Nine minutes Q and 10 minutes. Jupiter. So counting beyond 10 is where things get a little tricky. The way that you pronounce the numbers is the same until you get to the last one. So, for example, 11 minutes would be ju e book because it ends in one. And this is how you say that one minute. So do it. Boom would be 11. Um, let's see. 18 minutes would be do happen. 28 minutes would be need you happen and again. 38 minutes, son do, and it will continue in that manner. So the way, the way that you say numbers beyond 10 it's going to be the way that you normally say that number up to the last minute. And, um, numbers that end with the number 10. Because when you count in Japanese counting beyond 10 counting beyond 19 requires a number and then the number 10 So 30 minutes could be sanju pop 40 minutes Yawn job. So it's still gonna end different because the last number that you would say is 10 in Japanese. So I know that might be a little confusing. And I have included examples here. 11 minutes would be Jew 12 minutes, Juniata. 13 minutes. Do samba 14 minutes. Do young for 15 minutes. Do go, huh? 20 minutes. Need Jube? Uh, 45 minutes, Younggu. Golfer, 59 minutes Gold. You Cuba, 30 minutes, Some jib boom. But actually 30 minutes can also be pronounced Hunt. So some important phrases that are going to go with time is what time is it? Um Iman Landeskog on Emma's specifically means now. So it just means what time is it right now? In order to add AM or PM two a number, you're going to say either goals n or Google before you say the time, so in English, you would say 7 a.m. in Japanese. That am particle first. Um, some more important phrases are talking about time durations. So for hours, you can say, um, a number. So just for hours. So this would be just the numbers with no minutes, the number of hours, the same way you would say it for O clock. And then instead of just g, it ends in Jakarta, um, to say and announced it Count our so from 2 to 2, if you want to say two hours, you would take the way that you say two oclock. And instead of stopping at G, you would add pecan. Um, I hope I didn't repeat myself. I just felt like I didn't explain it right the first time. Um, if you want to talk about a certain amount of minutes ago, as in before right now, you would say that number of minutes or hours and then my knee, so a number of minutes or hours my knee, so two hours ago needed come Miami. Now, if you want to talk about, um, time in the future time in the future, so any time after right now, so in a certain amount of hours or minutes. Um, you can say the number of the time span and then meet, so I'm not really going to try to explain that too much in depth. Instead, I'm just going to show you examples, so I'm the 1st 1 here. 7:30 a.m. Goals in DJ Hung or goes in DJ Sanjay Gupta. I kind of had a brain brain fart moment There, 7:30 p.m. Is going to sound similar, except it's go go TG hunt. Seven hours as and it took me seven hours to drive here. DJ come seven hours ago, as in I started driving seven hours ago. Did you calm my knee? And seven hours later, or in seven hours I'm going to drive home. Stevie G. D Conn. Ap Tony So this seven hours ago t combine e seven hours later or in seven hours. Studi, Conn. AP Tony So my it means before and I thought means after. So some more examples. We have, um, seven minutes. So, um, not not for seven minutes ago. No, not whom, Eyeing me seven minutes later or in seven minutes from me. So more examples um, five oclock would be Golgi 5 30 Gold Jihan or goji san Juba 5 a.m. Golden Golgi. 5 p.m. gobo goji 5:45 p.m. Go, go, go! Oh, ji young, You go. So now here are some examples for you to try. Go ahead and pause the video here, and I will give you the answers on the next um, side. All right. So the answers are for a You should have goes in hockey. Di need you go her for a b. Go. Go. Yogi Youngjun. See Google Sandy juego de go go Cookie e um, Goes in e t T Younggu Cuba f hachi Chikane My knee g go home. My knee h Do you go to her? My knee. Do you go home? I told me. Sorry about that. I, Sandy, Sandy can and Jay is going to be Do need you come. So even though I put 12 here, um and I didn't mention this in the previous slides. When you see these numbers, try your best to think in Japanese. So, for example, when you see the number five and G um, try not to think five switching to your Japanese brain and just know that this is gold, not five. It's a bad habit that a lot of my students tend to make, but I feel that having to constantly right out certain numbers, it's just It just doesn't make sense. Um, so those were though those questions, I have some more for you to try. So let's say it's 7 15 I'm not saying it's P m or E m. Just saying at 7 15 in five minutes. What time will it be? Give yourself about 30 seconds. Pause the video and I'm going to give you the answer here. Nana g Do go her. All right. The next one. I usually wake up at 6:15 a.m. But today I woke up three hours late. What time did I wake up? And the answer is Koji Jill, Go for All right. So, um, that is it for this lesson. I know it probably was a lot. You may have to go back and watch it again. And if you have any questions, please leave them in the community tab. That way I can enter your questions. And if there's anything that I'm not really explaining clearly out. Definitely. Like to know so that I can make improvements to the lessons that I make after this. Um, so that is all for this lesson, and I will see you in the next one. 5. Lesson 4: Hello everybody and welcome toe lesson for the title of this lesson is expression notes. What exactly are expression notes in the Genki text? Thes notes are given about different aspects of the language that are either connected to culture. That might be kind of confusing. So essentially the expression notes are supposed to help connect any dots that may have left you confused as you've learned the chapter, the material in the chapter. So I'm going to go through these expression notes and try to explain them in my own words and make sure that they make sense. So now that I finally got that out, um, expression note number one is entitled hot or walk. And so I actually already briefly touched on this, and I believe lesson one, but it never hurts to talk about it again. So whenever you use hot as a particle, it's pronounced. While so, um, common examples would be in grammar such as this first sentence watashi wa me home, Ghana say must. And yes, I did not put any heat I got above watashi because I really want you to know that one. And I did not put any kanji above in the Hong goal because you definitely need to know that one. But again, this sentence is read as what? Pussy rot. Nihon Goga, Hana. Same us. So this how here is pronounced walk. It's a particle. No. In this second sentence, you will see that although these are right next to each other, this is a regular hot because it's a part of a word. And this is what? Because it's a particle. And this is where it becomes so important to just grasped the concept of how particles work so that you're not looking at Japanese sentences and just seeing a bunch of characters or just a bunch of words. So this sentence reads Carreno, Hanawa, a cock Unity must stock his nose turned red. So nose and Japanese is Hama. And how would you know that this is Hana wa and not Hana ha or wanna ha? Um and that is going to come down to you understanding Japanese. And the more you understand it, the more again it's just not going to look like a bunch of characters next each other. That is also the benefit of Condi, though, because if I put Hannah in Kanji that would stop you from seeing them side by side. But again, you have to be able to recognize when a word is a word and when a particle is a particle and not getting them mixed up. So, for example, here, if you didn't know, you could stop here at a Kaku, which is read, Um and I actually didn't put any heat I got above that one either. I guess I just was trying to throw us much Japanese as much. Crown Gina's possible Have a students. Um, you could look at this. And this is a grammar point you've learned now? No. Now, Karrine Ohana, that in itself tells you that this must be a word. Karrine Ohana. Um So, yes, I hope I explained that good enough. Another common one that sometimes gets skipped over is Cockney to a con. To out is written with this hot at the end. For what? And so is calm, Bama. So when you're referring to a person that you are talking to, you want to refrain from using a Not so. Instead you would rather use the person's name. So here in Japanese, I put Stone on my the person's name. That is not to say that I'm not that is this forbidden word. I know some people make it sound like, um, your like, custom someone out by calling them on A. And I think that it's kind of a case by case situation, But there, times where you are specifically trying to say, you you're not saying it to be authoritative. Maybe you don't know the person's name. Or maybe in the whatever it is that you're saying, whatever sentence that you're saying, it just doesn't. You just have to use a Napa, and that's OK. But if you want to always just avoid Ana, you would just use that person's name. So if you're saying if someone asks you, let's say your friend Maya asks you how you're doing when you respond, you're not going to say and how are you doing? You would respond in Japanese saying, How is Maya doing? If your friend Maya lost her wallet and you found it, you wouldn't say. Is this your wallet in Japanese using on a panel? You would say, Is this Maya's wallet? So it sounds complex, but I promise you, the more Japanese you learn the less complex this is going to seem. And so the final expression note is using on a long and it'll both of these, um represent, um, or as you're thinking of what you want to say and in my opinion, my humble opinion for your for a language that you're learning, It's good to be able to say, um because it lets people know that you are thinking about what you're going to say and not it helps them to know that you're thinking of what you're going to say instead of that them thinking that you don't know what to say or you just didn't understand the sentence. So obviously there are times where it's not so good to say, Um, I am terrible at this in English, and it translates into my Japanese. I am terrible of There is definitely a time and a place to use. Um, I'm just not really that big on cutting it out of my vocabulary, but it is important that you know how to say, um, and the bonus feature is that it will make you sound a little more fluent. Oh, so those are the expression notes. I hope that they tied some things together. And if there was anything that I explained and you just didn't get gold to the community tab, send me your questions and I would love to answer it for you. And so with that being said, that is it and I will see you in the review. 6. Review: Hello and welcome to the review for this course. This review is going to be tying it all together. So we're going to make it all we're going to use as much as possible that we just learned together and all at once, and this is actually something different. I did not do this at all in the introduction to Japanese Siri's. So I'm trying something new. I feel that it is really going to challenge you and really give you an opportunity to see how much you've absorbed. So with that being said, uh, the way that this review is going to go is you're going to listen to a comprehension check using the vocabulary you've learned so far as well as the grammar. You're gonna listen to the dialogue and answer the questions about the dialogue afterwards . So you're going to post those answers in the community tab and I will tell you either you got it right or you got it wrong. So I will also be saying the dialogue wants slowly and once quickly, actually integral in the reverse order. So one time, very quickly and one time very slowly, so go ahead and get ready for it to start. All right, comprehension. Check one. We must remove and discard Jury duty. Sound. You have burned this. Machi sums. You got mine. Equalizing already. Must stop. Yeah, by all right. Now I'm going to read it one time. Slowly up soon. Mima said Iman. Angie, discard Do t g sanju happen this Margie Sanjay Khan. My knee. Yeah, by the purpose of this was to see if you can understand enough bits and pieces toe have an idea of what's going on. So, um, it's OK if you didn't know every word. So here are the questions for the comprehension Check. I need you to post the answers. I makes you number them, and I will let you know if you got it right or wrong. And then you can respond to me with any questions that you might have. So, um, hopefully everybody will get it right, but if you don't, that's okay. This is how you're going to figure out what you really just don't get And, um so make sure that along with comprehension, check one that you also complete the basic Japanese one worksheets. It's actually workbook that is attached with this course. So one that note, I'm gonna end it here. I hope that this was helpful. Actually, before I ended, I do want to go ahead and mention, um, my I do want to go ahead and remind you that if you would like one on one lessons or tips for learning Japanese free worksheets and all the other content that I enjoy making you can go ahead to pair a pair of dreams dot com and I'll be sure to put it at the end of this.
