Today's lesson is about numbers
数(かず)

Before we get too much further into Japanese grammar and verb conjugation, it would be a good idea to learn Japanese numbers.
 
Once you know the Japanese words for 1 through 10, the other numbers are a piece of cake.
 
11 is simply ten with a one after it, 11 (juuichi, juuichi),. 
 
The other numbers are like this, too. 12 –juuni, 13 –juusan, etc.
 
20 is simply twenty (nijuu, nijuu), 21 –nijuuichi, and so forth.

Reference from the Japan Foundation

KEY:

Numbers are one of the universally used ones.

数字は普遍的に使われるものです。必ず覚えましょう。

No language No life

Yesterday, I told you that knowledge is the greatest asset that no one can take away from you.

Today, I would like to go one step further and tell you something important that most people think unconsciously but most people are not able to do.

The world-famous Jay Abraham said this.

Every person, and of course you, know deep down inside that you

  • I want to accomplish great things.
  • I want to be the best I can be.

In other words, deep down inside we have the desire to accomplish great things, to be the best we can be, to be the greatest person we can be.

It is human nature to want to be great. We want to be “great” and “the best.” We instinctively pursue it.

  • Being great.
  • Great parents.
  • Great managers.
  • Great entrepreneurs.
  • Great professional…

Pursuing these things is programmed into your DNA. But most people stop pursuing them.

Fear of failure, fear of not achieving out loud, fear of ending up mediocre in pursuit of greatness, etc.

So they stop pursuing it.

  • It’s okay to be “mediocre.”
  • As long as we can make a “living,” that’s fine.

Then they stop trying, give up something in their hearts, and choose to continue living in quiet desperation.

They set limits on themselves.

  • The financial success that maybe you could have had.
  • The financial success you could have achieved.
  • The fulfillment you might have felt.

You may have told yourself that you can’t have them and have given up trying.

But you are not.

You haven’t given up yet, have you?

You want to enrich your life, improve your company, absorb new knowledge and ideas, and better yourself by acquiring language skills.

That’s why you reached out to this Japanese e-learning program, isn’t it? You are still challenging yourself.

That’s great.

Even if the challenge does not bear fruit, continuing to challenge yourself to achieve greatness and excellence is a wonderful thing in itself, and an inspiration and encouragement to the many people who are watching over you.

No matter how successful you may be, people who are not pushing their own limits, who are not improving themselves in their quest for excellence, are neither attractive nor respected.

Growing into greatness and excellence is something no one can achieve without “will” and “action.

It is not possible to live an ordinary life, do ordinary things, and think like an ordinary person, and before you know it, you have achieved greatness.

If you want to push your limits, if you want to accomplish something great because you were born into this world, if you want to be the best you can be, if you want to live a life of excellence, let us help you take one more step.

Today we would like to invite you to take a free trial lesson with one of our Japanese language teachers.

You will have access to these Japanese learning materials and be challenged by a teacher who wants to help you become a great teacher in the future.

To date, we have helped thousands of learners like you master and excel in the Japanese language.

Everyone has a different nationality and very different goals. They all have different specialties, skills, and knowledge. But there is one thing they have in common.

What do you think it is?

It is “will.”

The will to challenge, the will to achieve, the will to struggle, the will to learn a language, the will to excel.

If you have the will to push your limits if you are not satisfied with the status quo if you are determined to carve out a great life, check out our free trial lesson page for Japanese language teachers.

Trial lessons are usually arranged within a week and we can discuss your plans for improvement.

We look forward to meeting you.
