夏休み、

身についたみたいです。

Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool with my transcription below the photos if you need help reading the testimonial from this poster advertising a cram school’s summer courses.  It features very natural, conversational language by moms about their kids, relating the positive effects that the course had on them.

This ad campaign is aimed at kids who haven’t been to a 塾(じゅく), or cram school, before.

I’ll highlight each of the four testimonials in separate Kanji Kanban posts.

The numbers below refer to the kanji I’ve transcribed below the photo, and correspond to their order of appearance in both Heisig’s Remembering the Kanji and Kanji in Context.

ゴジラのたまご

If you’re studying hiragana and katakana, try reading this crate. Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool with my transcription below the photo if you need help.

At 7800 yen(about $80 USD) these watermelon aren’t cheap but the novel name and packaging should make for a memorable summer gift. Even if you can’t read the katakana and hiragana, the illustration will tell you that this is in fact not a melon,  it’s Godzilla’s egg!  Run while you still can!

These are from Hokkaido(北海道)and are distributed by Japan’s biggest agricultural cooperative, JA.

Katakana Japanese Reading Practice #8: Bistro’s Sign

スノッビー

If you’re studying katakana, try reading this sign.  It shouldn’t be much of a challenge with the English word written above it, but I couldn’t resist sharing this.

Despite my apprehensions I went there for dinner and the couple who run it were nothing but welcoming and served up some tasty dishes, too!
