For those of you that want to learn more about culture there are sets of 4 Kanji that make up lots of expressions and are very difficult to remember. I have only run into a few living here in Japan but Japanese people are impressed if you understand them. Here are some of those worksheets.For this first sheet there is the 4 kanji along with how to read it. You are supposed to put the meaning of the expression in the lower box. I would recommend maybe having two of these sheets and writing the meaning in your native tongue first and then translating that into Japanese. http://www.kanji1006.com/yojipdf/yoji200.pdf
Thanks for these ones! They are pretty neat, in particular the 4 kanji ones (which also are lethal to me), thankfully I have a dictionary of those expressions but it's another whole world to learn those so I think I'll stick with the grade ones first.
