Wow, it’s been a while! I’m so sorry that we fell off the face of the Earth again. I guess it’s safe to say we’ll be no Katzumoto (in his quest for learning Japanese he did it in 18 months with immersion). The immersion method works well as long as you keep trekking and don’t [...]
Here are two more music mixes for you all! We’ve had a lot of positive responses surrounding the mixes, so thank you very much to everyone who has sent us email or comments regarding it, especially about the Talkshow & Storytime mixes. I promise to continue making them! Is there anything else you’d like to [...]
永次 and I love dumplings(ぎょうざ) even though they can sometimes take quite a while to make. Since we no longer consume dairy products(乳製品), finding pre-made dumpling wrappers without egg(鶏卵) in them proved to be quite a challenge! It seemed every where we went and every package we turned over had it in the ingredients. I [...]
Today I’d like to share more immersion mixes for you to help you with the listening portion of your study! After the release of the previous Japanese listening mix we made, we had some requests for more normal Japanese everyday speaking, because the story time mix was slower and, well, stories! We have two [...]
We’ve had extremely unusual weather(天気) for our area this winter(冬). We don’t have any snow(雪) yet, but it’s still been bitterly cold most days- so what better way to keep warm then some hot(暑い) ramen, kanji study, and tea!
This recipe (料理法) is great if you’re vegetarian or if you have a problem with lactose, [...]
I may have gone slightly overboard over on 8tracks and made about six mixes already to share for immersion purposes. Last time I shared Japanese native speaking, and today I’m going to share some actual music mixes I made for you. Enjoy!
永次 and I would like to provide something new here on Kanji & Tea, and I’m happy to share the first with you. Audio mixes to enhance your learning! You can bookmark the mix easily and listen to it through out your day while you work or while you’re doing other activities. We’ll be [...]
I mentioned before that 永次 and I like to add Japanese culture and customs into our own as much as possible, so New Years was quite the treat for us. We had taro and green tea flavored mochi and mailed out New Years cards to friends.
Once again, it’s definitely been a while, but this time I’m definitely going to give you an explanation because I feel like it’s high time I gave you one. We’ve still been studying, but during the course of running Kanji & Tea I’ve started working from home full time and it’s been very busy for [...]
Hey everyone! Momo here, and I’ve been super busy with work lately but I wanted to share some motivation/inspiration. I hope you’re still studying!
Learning Japanese At HomeOur goal for Kanji & Tea, aside from sharing our struggles and successes, is to help provide the everyday person with all the tools necessary to learn Japanese on their own through everyday immersion.
How did you learn your first language? Hands on and not through a text book! You listened, you watched, you absorbed. Well, what's stopping you from learning your second or third language that way? The answer is nothing.
You have everything you need to get started. All that's left is to just start.
