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.

Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
Let them praise His name with dancing
and make music to Him with tambourine and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in His people;
He crowns the humble with salvation.
— Psalm 149:2-4
