A while ago, I got this flash card set for both kana and kanji and I’m so glad I did because they came in handy today during Miyu and I’s Nihongo study session. She was excited to jog her memory and we marked the ones she had trouble remembering with a cupcake post-it note for future review. I knew some of the first grade kanji, but not nearly as much as Miyu. She said that I would need to go to “first grade school” like her and she started wondering how I would do so. I laughed and told her that her teacher would kick me out of the classroom because I don’t belong there. Ken explained to her that I already finished school, but I could tell that Miyu didn’t understand—which made it all the more funny to me.
