Word for the Travel Wise (06/04/06)

I’ve got Tokyo on my mind and I don’t know why. I take that back. Places like Tokyo always come to mind when I start craving for international travel in big cities with an extravagant amount of lights and sounds I can’t quite comprehend. Like a good number of large metropolises located around the world I won’t be hitting this one up anytime soon, so let’s just proceed with today’s lesson.

Today’s word is a Japanese word used in Japan:

tomodachi – friend

Spoken Japanese comes smoothly for those who either practice or submit themselves to hours of Japanese pop music, but either way one can learn this language in through several avenues. Japanese Online is a VERY good FREE site to start learning. They have audio and a great conversation lessons. The lessons get more in-depth as you become a registered user which is still free of charge. Takese.com has a list of over 2000 words worth checking out. Those on the road already may want to pick up the LP Japanese phrasebook or check into a school for a few weeks of learning. Study Abroad has a list of school located all over the country. If you’re seeking help with written Japanese best of luck to you!
