Learn Japanese on Mondays Extra #1 : JAPANESE SWEAR WORDS
Hello everybody, I think I fixed the sound problem, so off we go. Today I am gonna show you how to be impolite in Japanese, how to swear, and how to be rude. I hope you enjoy the show, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. Question #1 on the word chikushoo: it literally means "beast" but when you say it it does not mean beast. People usually tell it to them selves and it means: shit or damn it or f#ck. I used shit in the video since it is easier to remember it along with kuso. Question #2 on baka: Yes in Osaka people mostly use aho, it also means baka and people in Osaka use it instead of baka.

Learn Japanese on Mondays #1: JAPAN AND SOME TIPS ON KANJI ORIGIN
Today we are going to learn how to read "Japan" in Japanese. And a few things on the origin of japanese characters. Transcription: Konnichi wa Ada desu! Hello everybody my name is Ada and today I am going to teach you how to write Japan in Japanese. So how do Japanese people spell their own country. Nihon Nihon This is the most common way to spell Japan in Japanese, but... you are not supposed to write it like that. Ok this is more like it. Japanese people use special characters to write. They took these special characters from Chinese people. Chinese people created them thousands of years ago. I mean we are talking about 3000 or maybe 4000 years ago. This character used to look like this. Now, I think it looks a little bit like the sun. Just imagine some mountains down there, and perhaps a little lake - ok I m not Picasso I know. This is the sun, and it also means day, because during the day the sun shines. As years went by Chinese people thought that it would be easier to write it with straight lines. Thus the sun became a rectangle. So this means sun or day. And how about this one. This used to be the tree in Chinese, 3000 years ago, but again Chinese people found it easier to write it like this. And this is the tree in Chinese today and also in Japanese. But what does this little straight line mean at the bottom of the tree? Well it is there to tell us that this is the root of the tree. So this kanji means root. So Japan means Sun plus root. It's the land of the rising sun. So this is pronounced Nihon, usually. Sometimes it is pronounced Nippon, this is more official. And some times, rarely it is pronounced Hinomoto. Hinomoto. You don't need to memorize this, it is extremely rare. Nihon, Nippon, I'm Ada, thank you for watching, arigatou gozaimashita.

G's Forgotten Dream
A tiny film about a man's dream. Location: Milies Village, Greece I visited the village recently, and I was lucky enough to watch the train depart. The metallic bridge that appears in the video, is called "de Chirico's bridge" because it was constructed by the famous painter's father. The fresco in the church is also very old and original.
