Blogging in Japanese / 日本語でブログを書く

» 19 January 2009 » In NPB Tracker »

Some of you may have noticed that I posted an entry in Japanese earlier today. I’ve been thinking about giving writing in Japanese a shot for a while, and when the news of Ken Kadokura’s contract with the Cubs broke in English first, I thought I’d take it as an opportunity. The same content was available in English in a seperate post that was published moments before.

I don’t speak or write native-level Japanese and I’ll make mistakes, so I’m looking at this as an opportunity to improve. For anyone out there learning Japanese (and I’m sure there must be a few), ALC is a great resource for translating short Japanese-English, and this site is handy for getting the readings of tough Kanji characters. Both of those sites are intended for a Japanese audience, so they’re not really recommended for beginners. For a more novice learner (and up), jisho.org is a good resource.

今日は、初めて日本語でブログを書いた。しばらく日本語でブログを書こうと思っていたし、今日の門倉健のカブス入団というニューズがさきに英語で出たことをきっかけに、はじめようと思った。同じ内容も英語も記事もアップした。

ぼくは、日本語がネイティブ級じゃないから、たまに間違えるけど、上達するのが目標です。日本人の読者は、間違えに気付いたら、教えてくれてください。英語を勉強してる人には、英和翻訳サイトのALCがおすすめです。オンライン辞書のjisho.orgも便利だと思っている。
