自己紹介

A disclaimer: In an effort to improve expressing myself in Japanese, I will occasionally post articles here written entirely in said language. Below the Japanese script, I will provide an English translation. This should be fun! Thanks for reading! And to anyone practicing Japanese, please leave comments in 日本語!ありがとう!

みんなさん、初めまして!

私の名前はカイルです。

私はカナダのエドモントンから来ました。しかし子供の時と大学生の時にアメリカのミネソタに住んでいました。今、私の家族はミネソタに住んでいます。

去年の八月一日に日本に来ました。3つの中学校で英語を教えています。毎日、とても楽しいです。

私の趣味はゴルフをすることです。そして、少しギターを弾くことができます。あなたはどんな楽器を弾くことができますか。音楽が大好きだよ!

1年半日本語を勉強しています。日本語がとても難しいと思います。でも、日本語がすごく面白いと思います。特に漢字練習が好きです。毎週月曜日から金曜日まで学校の中には2時間ぐらい日本語を勉強しています。教科書の名前はみんなの日本語です。すばらしい教科書と思います。とてもやくにたつちます。

今度テイフちゃんと九州のロードトリップをします。 車で熊本と鹿児島と屋久島へ 行きます。楽しみにしています。ところで旅行が大好き!5月12日に飛行機で中国の上海へ行きます。私の友達に会います。今、友達はカナダに住んでいます。彼は中国人です。でも、彼の英語がとても上手だと思います。

とりあえず終わります!

よろしくお願いします!

カイル

Nice to meet you everyone!

My name is Kyle.

I am from Edmonton, Canada. However, when I was a child and university student, I lived in Minnesota (United States). My family lives in Minnesota.

On August 1 of last year, I came to Japan. I teach English at 3 Junior High Schools. It’s a lot of fun every day.

One of my hobbies is playing golf. Also, I can play a little guitar. What instruments do you play? I love music!

I have been studying Japanese for a year and a half. I think Japanese is very difficult, but it is very interesting. I especially enjoy practicing kanji (the Chinese characters). Every week from Monday to Friday, I study Japanese for about two hours at the schools. The textbook I use is called Minna No Nihongo. I think it is an awesome textbook. It is very useful.

I will soon go on a road trip throughout Kyushu with Tiff. We will go to Kumamoto, Kagoshima, and Yakushima by car. I am looking forward to it. By the way, I love to travel! On May 12, I will travel by airplane to Shanghai, China. I will meet my friend. He lives in Canada now. He is Chinese. I think his English is amazing.

That is all for now!

Be kind to me, as I will to you,

Kyle

The Minna no Nihongo series can be purchased at all major book stores around Japan and online via Amazon.co.jp.
