It doesn’t make the actual learning part easier, of course ^_^, but it does make the learning materials much simpler (and cheaper) to access and as such the excuses for not learning get harder to find. Oddly enough, Twitter, the social behemoth, is one such learning resource. The ubiquity of Twitter, via a strong mobile and desktop presence and a ton of third party apps, means you can connect to the Twitterverse in so many different ways. I access Twitter via Tweetdeck and Tweetie on my iPhone and then through the browser and Tweetie’s desktop client when I’m back at home – simple and always convenient.

Japanese "adjectives" [Back to the main Japanese page] Why do I write "adjectives" in quotes for this chapter? Because your mind has a preset idea of what an adjective is-- based on how English uses words called adjectives to modify nouns-- and the Japanese adjective is not quite the same. It is indeed a class of words that modifies nouns, but it does so in a different way than the corresponding class in English. Hence, your intuition will be wrong in some cases.
