Its strange I had never heard of this 4 kanji compound let alone come across it in reading until about 3 weeks ago when it popped up in my DS kanji kentei test. Now I see it everywhere. It must come up in every other chapter of the Murakami book I am reading.
That often happens when you learn some new Japanese. Well, it used to when I was in Japan and I’d frequently see words around me that I’d studied.
How long have you been using your DS kanji kentei ‘game’? I must get mine out for some kanji practise!
I started it back in March this year and have been playing it ever since. I find it annoying that once you get past level 5 it no longer tests the written ability for that level anymore. But this is the same for the Kanji Kentei test itself.
You’re kanji writing skills are really up there!
I’m going to try and start writing Japanese again. PCs have sped up my learning in some ways but in this case slowed down, make that worsened, my language ability.
