🔊[QUIZ]Listening, Reading, & Translation Practice| Basic Classroom Vocabulary | TAPE 3 (& TAPE 1 + TAPE 2) – SIDE B|| Kiki+Koko: Let’s NihonGO!! Japanese Language Learning Essentials

Basic Classroom Vocabulary - QUIZ - TAPE 3 - SIDE A thumbnail皆様, こんにちにゃあぁ!Welcome to Kiki+Koko: Let’s NihonGO!! Online, your digital destination for Japanese language and culture. We’re your guides, Kiki and Koko! We’re here to lead you through Japanese language and culture in a way that not only assists you in understanding it, but actually learning and using it! We’ve presented you with a plethora of Japanese vocabulary words, but just memorising them isn’t the key to learning. It’s actually being able to put them to use! Learning is about stretching your mind in ways that you may not have even thought. And, it’s that element of surprise that makes these skill-testing / practice segments so useful. It helps you to follow the logic of a sentence, apply your vocabulary knowledge, and not only create sentences, but understand them. Communication takes at two! Not just us twins, but one to give information and another to receive it. And, this segment, we’re going to turn this Japanese language mixtape over to SIDE-B where you’ll not only practise using your skills to communicate, but also test your skills of understanding and comprehension.

We’re taking TAPE3,  flipping it to SIDEB, and pressing [▶PLAY], and remixing it with parts of TAPE1and TAPE2, then seeing if you can suss out their meanings! That’s right! You’re not only practising and testing one skill, but putting together the previous skills you’ve possibly learnt. However, this isn’t as comprehensive as it can get. We’re trying to keep things simple enough to make sense to anyone who has a basic understanding of the vocabulary, but complex enough to keep those who have the vocabulary memorised to instead try to apply logic, creating more pathways in their minds for future linguistic usage~!

𝕃𝕒𝕤𝕥 𝕥𝕚𝕞𝕖, 𝕠𝕟 𝔹𝕒𝕤𝕚𝕔 ℂ𝕝𝕒𝕤𝕤𝕣𝕠𝕠𝕞 𝕍𝕠𝕔𝕒𝕓𝕦𝕝𝕒𝕣𝕪… We had a listen of those classic jams: 🔊 Basic Classroom Vocabulary | Verbs | TAPE 3 – SIDE A, and 🔊 Basic Classroom Vocabulary | Verbs | TAPE 3 – SIDE B. And, during that, we had throwbacks to previous tapes, on which we tested your skills in 🔊[QUIZ]Listening, Reading, & Translation Practice| Basic Classroom Vocabulary | TAPE 1 + TAPE 2 – SIDE A  and 🔊[QUIZ]Listening, Reading, & Translation Practice| Basic Classroom Vocabulary | TAPE 1 + TAPE 2 – SIDE B. However, these only tested your translation knowledge of said nouns and adjectives. This time, we’re going to test not only your knowledge of these verbs, but a bit about translation and word choice. Again, don’t worry, we won’t make things too difficult, but we’ll be sure to give you enough of a challenge for this to be something to which you can return for revision and practice.

There are quite a few vocabulary words in here, and though we were sure to give some time before we tested your knowledge to be sure there was a bit of a chance to get a better idea of what you know, there was still so much material presented between then and now that we understand if you’re not confident in these words, yet. But, again, that’s alright! Take your time and work at your own pace. And, if you ever feel this quiz is becoming too much at any point for beginners, then just take a rest and come back to it. It’s better to continue when you’re in a more receptive state. It makes things much more enjoyable AND more efficient! We’re not really in the whole school of ‘cramming’ as you may have guessed. We’re just here to support you every step of the way whether those steps are quick or careful, constant or intermittent.

But, let’s not postpone this any longer! Let’s dive into the deep end of learning and revision. It’s time to have a look at today’s quiz/practice! If you’ve completed the previous quiz/practice, you’ll hopefully be acquainted with the rules of the games, but if you haven’t or need a reminder, no worries; we will explain how to complete it as well as its use. Let’s NihonGO!!

Listening (or Reading) Practice |日本語の聞き取り(若しくは読み取り)練習

quizbo mini ieindigoeast dot com scanlines

Hello, there!僕、 QUIZBO™くんです!練習しようよ!Let’s NihonGO!!

We’re starting off with some listening or reading practise. If you’re unable to use the audio clips, then you’ll still be able to use this for Japanese reading practice. We’ll keep this simple, though, and stick to hiragana. If you don’t know one of the characters yet, then it’s still alright, because you can at least try to fill in the blanks with the audio or just practical context. We have here with us the portable version of our computer robot friend, QUIZBO™ Mini, who will be here to help read out the audio portions. And, if you’re not using the audio, then he’ll just be here to encourage you. Are you ready!? Let’s NihonGO!!

Phraseology Practice |用語練習

In this section, you’ll practise choosing the appropriate word for the situation. Of course, many people can make silly sentences intentionally, but we’re looking for answers that are most appropriate based on context. This takes understanding the meaning of a word to another level, actually understanding which one you should be using in context, helping you pair previous nouns with current verbs. If you’re using this as practice, this will help you anchor these new verbs to the previous words you’ve hopefully already revised. And, if you haven’t, then no worries, you can still use these as context for learning those previous words. Though, of course, it’s best to sort of follow the path or this won’t be as helpful as it could be for you.

This will be a bit more of a skill practice than simple vocabulary as you’ll not only need to know the meaning of the word, but also know how to read it. But, no worries, you can always practise if you’re not quite ready to quiz yourself.

Translation Practice |翻訳練習

Now, you’re going to put together your skills from the previous sections in order to actually translate some sentences!

Now, we’re going to be using a few vocabulary words and grammatical concepts from previous lessons, but even still, you should be able to get good use out of this as long as you know the main vocabulary words from the lesson, and you’ll end up practising a few others along the way~! It’ll allow you to sort of assess your skills and you can even use these to create your own sentences~!

How did you do? Were these activities trickier than last time? Did you find you remembered a lot of the words? Could you read all of the hiragana? Whether or not you had an easy walk through the park or a bit of a careful trek through the woods, we’re proud of you for giving it your best! Remember, the answers are randomised, so you can always refresh and try it again, if you like! Maybe you’d like to try to do a bit more with today’s lesson? Well, the learning doesn’t have to stop here! You can always go through the incorrect answer options and try to translate them to English or from Japanese or vice versa. You can even create your own sentences! You can have a look at our grammar section to see how you can create your very own sentences if you’re not sure of the grammatical pieces of these sentences. (As you may have noticed, the particles and such may change based on the part of speech and the general meaning of the sentence.) We hope this acts as a helpful quick quiz or something that you can spend the evening combing through for even more vocabulary and grammar practice. We hope we’ll be able to create more activities like these in future! They’re quite a bit to code, but we think they’re useful, and something a bit different to the norm. Like a virtual print or a classroom activity.
