How I Got Started

昔々むかしむかし忍者にんじゃきだった友達ともだちがいた。わたしかれ俳句はいく短歌たんかいてあげていた。あるかんがえをおもいた。日本語にほんごわたしやくしたくて、水彩画すいさいがうえ習字しゅうじきたかった。でも、問題もんだいがあった。わたし日本語にほんごはなさなくて、だれもらなかった。だから、教科書きょうかしょって、勉強べんきょうはじめた。それから、インターネットで日本人にほんじんった。このひとわたしやくすのを手伝てつだってくれた。ここだ

日本語にほんご面白おもしろいとおもって、意味いみっているから、漢字かんじきだ。この理由りゆうにより、日本語にほんご勉強べんきょうつづける。

Show furigana


Some nifty things (and one not-so-nifty):

I found a good Japanese font to use for the iPad:  it's called "Hiragino Mincho ProN".  It took me a while to track down that information, but I was very pleased when I did.  For the Mac desktop, the font name is "Hiragino Mincho Pro".  I'm using "MS Mincho" as the default.

If you're viewing this on Firefox, you're missing out.  Try Chrome, IE, or Safari.  I have a bit of javascript that lets you show or hide the furigana... rendered with ruby tags.  Firefox, however, doesn't seem to want to apply the display property to RT tags, which was disappointing.

Lastly, I've posted vocabulary, grammar and kanji for Genki Chapter 15.

Thus says the Lord:
"Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness,
justice, and righteousness in all the earth,
For in these I delight," declares the Lord.
— Jeremiah 9:23-24
