I haven't posted a lesson in almost two months. I got a little discouraged, mainly because of the fact that there were many trolls downvoting my lessons, as well as the fact that the Japanese for English speakers course is coming out in a few months (hopefully!), so I did not see a reason to keep posting. However, I figured that seeing as many people still do want to learn Japanese, and I enjoyed making these lessons, I figured I would keep uploading them until the actual course came out.

Please, please, if you do not care about these lessons, rather than downvoting/commenting negatively, just scroll past them. Thank you.

And now the actual lesson.

I won't be going over school life in Japan, mainly as I have never had the chance to go to school in Japan. I will simply be going over the words common around a school (such as school supplies and names of rooms). I will be including some sentences as well, but not for all of them. The list is sort of long, so this will be a 2 part lesson, and part 2 will hopefully be posted tomorrow (3/18/17).

In (hopefully) tomorrow's lesson, there will be words for school supplies and subjects, as well as a few extra vocabulary. If I kept going on, the list would have been way, way to long.

As always; native speakers, please repeat my mistakes.

これからも頑張ってください。

I am honestly not that sure. I think 'sensei' is more common in a sense that is used in schools other than university.
