Kiki+KoKo: Let's NihonGO!!

🔊Japanese Word(s) of the Week w/ QUIZBO™ | 【勉強】

"QUIZBO™" Retro White and pastel striped Computer / Robot with blue screen, on screen is a friendly, smiling face. Occasionally blinkingHELLO! I AM QUIZBO™!Welcome to Kiki+Koko: Let’s NihonGO!! Online’s Word of the Week!  In this segment, you will be given a brandnew Japanese word along with an example sentence, or multiple example sentences, that illustrate ways in which you can use the word, or hear the word. 

It is my hope that this will assist you in your Japanese language studies. Experiencing these words in multiple contexts should assist in cementing them in your memory. Also, there are many uses that beginners may not have known if they were originally introduced to this word before. Also, I will not mind if you need me to repeat these words multiple times. That is my purpose here!


Word(s) of the Week:

勉強 べんきょう 
benkyou 
noun, Suru-verb 
1. Study※ 
2Diligence 
3. Discount

※「勉強」is used mostly in the context of studying, but it is also useful to know the other less ‘common’ contexts? It is still labelled as a common usage, but it might be better to think of it as a basic usage.


Example Sentences:

The first row is in Japanese with Kanji. The Next row is in hiragana, then romanised using rōmaji with the final row translated into English.
(Japanese→Hiragana→Rōmaji→English)
