Today is the Sultan’s birthday. So my class was cancelled. And I guess it’s kinda good idea to write something here, about my “class”.
So.. what’s with the inverted comma with that “class”? Well, it’s a language class. Nihongo. Yup, Japanese language class.
Dah kenapa tiba-tiba belajar Bahasa Jepun? I guess I have the option not to answer that question. Har2. Baik tak payah type soalan tu kat sini. Apapun, blog den, suko hati den la. Peace. 😉
Oh by the way, have you come across this verse in the Quran? Allah says:
وَمِن ءايٰتِهِ خَلقُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ وَاختِلٰفُ أَلسِنَتِكُم وَأَلوٰنِكُم ۚ إِنَّ فى ذٰلِكَ لَءايٰتٍ لِلعٰلِمينَ
And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge. (Surah Ar-Ruum, 30:22)
Beautiful isn’t it? Variety of languages spoken is also one of the signs of Allah. And I.. I just love languages. 🙂
Hey, let’s take a look at this infographic:
And my language learning history: I started to learn Français (French) when I was 13 – in my school. Well actually all of the students in that school have the options to learn one of these languages; Arabic, Français or Japanese. And to cut the long story short, I chose Français.
Few years later when I was in my university, I took Arabic. Though it was just basic, I found it pretty good and very useful especially when reading the Quran. It helps, really. I was kinda regret that I didn’t learn Arabic earlier in school, but learning Français was never a waste. I hope I can learn Arabic some more in the future.
Ok, enough of the past. Let’s talk about the current.
It’s almost been 2 months since I started my Nihongo class (Nihongo = Japanese language). It was cool and interesting because all of my sensei (sensei = teacher) are the native speakers of this languange. In other words, they are Japanese!
I’m still a beginner to this language. Still got lots of things to learn! (Tulis pun guna hiragana je..)
