[Japanese] Weather Forecast & Seasons of the Year!

The seasons result from the Earth's axis being tilted to its orbital plane; it deviates by an angle of approximately 23.5 degrees. Thus, at any given time during summer or winter, one part of the planet is more directly exposed to the rays of the Sun (see Fig. 1). This exposure alternates as the Earth revolves in its orbit. Therefore, at any given time, regardless of season, the northern and southern hemispheres experience opposite seasons.
The effect of axis tilt is observable from the change in day length, and altitude of the Sun at noon (the culmination of the Sun), during a year… so-

Kaoko's Animated GIF Collection Vol. 1

Hello, ladies and germs! For today, I’m going to share my beautiful art works of… Animated GIFs!
Well, you see… I’ve made many GIFs including funny gifs, anime food gifs, violent gifs, crazy gifs, annoying gifs, etc. until the folder I store my gifs in reached the climax around 150 MB. And that’s when an idea pooped into my brain! Whenever the storage reached 150 MB, I’ll zip it, upload it, and then share it with the world!

[Japanese] Jikan-chan! It’s Time! Clocks & Time Reading!

Yuki: ね、カオコちゃん、今何時? (Ne, Kaoko-chan, ima nan ji?) - Hey, Kaoko-chan. What time is it now?
Kaoko: 十一時五分だよ。 (Juu ichi ji go fun da yo.) - It’s fifty past eleven.

In this lecture, I, Kaoko-sama… will be teaching how to read times in Japanese, and many few other things. I have posted a post about numbers and counting, so I hope you’ve already read them, or you’ve already know how to count from zero to hundred (and that’s fair enough).
Reading time in Japanese is very simple. Like saying 5 o’clock, you’ll just have to add ji, after the number: go ji (five o’clock), roku ji (six o’clock), nana ji (seven o’clock), etc.
Anyway, let’s learn everything in order!

[Book Review] Japanese Verbs: Saying What You Mean

This book helped me a lot in my Japanese studies! Simple explanation, good examples, and wonderful teacher!
First I knew about Tim-sensei (the book’s author) was when I was looking for a website which teaches you about Japanese verbs. His site came first on the google search list. The website was very simple and I find it really useful; many notes to take, many lessons to learn from, and many other things.
Because I didn’t have a printer back then, I use to take 2 hours of my time a day, and sit next to the laptop with a notebook and my pencil case.
I will copy each lesson with a determined heart. Until one day I ended up buying the book from the Amazon!
I never regretted my choice. It really did help me in many ways!

[Book Review] My Brother Sam Is Dead

Although I found the title… kind of weird (lame), I found the story good and interesting. I only read it out of boredom.
It takes place in America 1600 (or 1700), about Sam Meeker who left his home in Redding, Connecticut, a town loyal to the king, to fight with the rebel army (the English), he places his family in a very difficult position. The story teller is Sam’s little brother, Timothy Meeker.

What I learnt in this book:-
I learnt a lot about the revolution war, as well as how the people use to live in those days. It’s a great mix of fact and fiction.
