To discover - miidasu - 見出す

I found out that due to scheduling conflicts next semester I am unable to continue my Japanese classes. So I guess it is back to self-study again. Oh well, I have a lot of books. My friend recently introduced me to a site called

Think of it like facebook but with language learners. I think it is a cool concept if it wasn't for the fact that I think it is creepy for people to ask me to have conversations through a headset to practice English or other languages. I have yet to do that. What I like the best about the site are the written submissions. Native speakers correct it and send it back to you. (I'm cringing on the inside thinking about how bad my Japanese has gotten.)

Check it out. There are lessons on the site but I haven't had the energy or interest to really focus on them yet to give my verdit.

Also, I finished all my Japanese letter writings. That was a lot of work but I'm happy.

Another thing, my favorite Japanese variety show Kenmin Show is now unoffically on Veoh! Yatta!

Hey Bev! I'm happy you liked the website. I've been trying to go on the website at least once a week, but I've been feeling a bit lazy as well. It is very useful because I can tell my kids a few useful phrases in German.I'm getting ready to go to this concert. It's called Beets & Berries. lol. I'll let you know how it goes.
