日本語の学び方

*日本語を学ぶとき、どのようなことが大切なのでしょうか。

生活の中で日本語を使いながら、体を通して日本語を身につける。

  • 友だちとたくさんあそぶ。
  • 授業でわからなことをそのままにしないで先生に聞く。

テレビや映画、絵本などを見て絵と音の両方から日本語を理解する。

  • 日本のアニメには好い物があります。(例:サザエさん、ドラえもん、となりのトトロ、千と千尋の神隠し)

身近な図書館を利用しよう。

  • 江戸川区立葛西図書館(電話3687-6811)は葛西小から歩いて5分です。そのほかにもたくさん図書館や児童館があります。区の施設などについては「外国人のための便利帳」LIVING IN EDOGAWAに詳しくのっています。区役所か出張所で無料でもらえます。(見本が日本語学級にあります。)

教科書をたいせつに。復習は自分からやろう。

  • はじめはむずかしくても、声に出して何度も読もう。
  • 自分の学年より前の漢字をしっかり覚えよう。
  • 辞書や問題集をつかって力をつけよう。
  • どんな辞書が良いか日本語学級でも相談にのります。

Let's find the fun of leaning.

The number of Japanese classes that the students took was different during the period of April through July. Some students just came to Japan and took as little as 20 hours and some had been in Japan for quite long and took as much as 69 hours. You are now living in Japan so that everything you listen and see is in Japanese such as TV programs, all the signboards in town, announcements and school activities . We can say that start learning Japanese in Japanese classes is like start "seeding" your Japanese in a short period of time.

The important things are :
  1. Try to speak during the everyday living and do not worrying about the mistakes.
  2. Listen to other people even though there are some words that you do not understand and answer to them from what you have understood. (You may use body languages as well.)
  3. Write some sentences that contain meanings and ask your Japanese friends and teachers to correct them.
  4. Read aloud repeatedly.
How fast your Japanese skill will "bloom" and become a "fruit" depends on whether you will repeat the above four points everyday or not.

Also reading and writing the Chinese characters,KANJI,are indispensable.
The friends in Japanese classes are using different methods to practice Japanese such as make a commitment to yourself to learn three or more KANJI a day, read a small dictionary in order to learn how to read or practice some KANJI workbooks during weekends.

"KANJI Marathon"is a way to check how many KANJI you have learned by putting check marks on 1,006 characters of KANJI that your learn between the first and the sixth grades. Some chidren can read more than 800 characters by just studying one year.

It might be difficult to lean Japanese in the beginning but by concentrating on learning,you will become to understand from the context of the sentences.
Children remember a lot of KANJI that they learn during the current grade forget the KANJI they learned in the previous year.

Finally,here is a quiz.
What part of Chinese characters are hidden in the words「聞く」(listen),
「言う」(say),and 「見る」(see)?

Hint:Parts of body. You can find one in「書く」as well.
Use KANWA JITEN (Dictionary of Chinese characters) to find out the history of each character.

Answers
