3月１０日のレッスンでした。また、ゆかり先生のレッスンを受けました。先生のページはここに: http://cafetalk.com/lessons/detail/?id=11457&lang=en. 今回もSkype とScribblar を使いました。読解の前に単語のリストを勉強しました。まずは色の単語でした。
In the first exercise, I learned that you can either attach the iro to a color or leave it the way it is. A good example is midori. Both midori (緑) and midori iro (緑色) are correct. Of course it doesn’t apply to mizuiro (緑色) since the word mizu stands by itself: water.
We had a couple more vocabulary lessons before finally getting into the reading part. Unfortunately the course was only 50 minutes so we did not have enough time to fully discuss the reading.
The reading was interesting. It was about gender color preferences. The author of this story was a boy whose father wanted to have a daughter. He had his five boys wear clothes in “girly” colors such as red and bright yellow. However in these days and age, the perception of color preference is not as strong as before and colors are viewed as gender neutral.
