"I wake up at eight thirty a.m."
Thats the way I feel too. They throw you into the water without teaching you the word which is frustrating.
I had absolutely no idea what to select, so went for random cards. Not much of a surprise that i was wrong.
Like this is hard yo understand, i think it would help if the voice talked the selected card. ... and some furigana too :v
When you get this question first and they don't give you the sound for the kanji, you have no way of knowing. If there was a vocalization for the kanji when you tapped the word it wouldn't be so bad.
I really think these questions should have a Japanese voice clip with them. Being able to hear what it should sound like would be very helpful
They really should specify more, japanesse has many characters and alphabets
Surely Japanese speakers would not say 午前in similar examples, as the listener would presume it to be 'am' not 'pm'? I read that it's considered rude to use obvious statements (eg 私/わたし) when speaking
Yes, but in most languages I suppose you learn the unnecessary obvious statements first. Makes it easier to understand before using it more casually
I think English translations until were doing better with the words and phrases would be so so helpful. But I guess they want us to be able to read any word? I admit knowing which symbol means 'n' has been useful. I don't feel like I know the pronunciations very well...
I really feel like we should know what the words mean before making us create sentences. They gave us a sentance to translate but didn't really quiz us on what the words were.
If you click on jap word in the translation jap=>eng it shows what the word means
起きます (okimasu) means "to wake up" ;)
置きます (okimasu) means "to put down"
Duolingo said that "gozen" comes before "hachi ji han" in this sentence, but it was the other way around in all of the sentences before. Can somebody please explain?
午前 and 午後 always came before the number for me in other exercises, as it should.
