Family Members in Japanese

Hey guys, so I'll be teaching the family memebers today. In Japanese you would use different words when talking about someone else's family and when talking about your own. I'll be showing both ways. So, let's start~ First family in Japanese is かぞく kazoku
Someone else's family in Hiragana: Mother: おかあさん Father: おとうさん Older Sister: おねえさん Older Brother: おにいさん Younger Brother: おとうとさん Younger Sister: いもうとさん In Kanji: Mother: お母さん Father: お父さん Older Sister: お姉さん Older Brother: お兄さん Younger Brother: 弟 Younger Sister: 妹 In Romaji: Mother: okaasan Father: otousan Older Sister: oneesan Older Brother: oniisan Younger Brother: otoutosan Younger Sister: imoutosan
Your Family Mother: はは Father: ちち Older Sister: あね Older Brother: あに Younger Brother: おとうと Younger Sister: いもうと In Kanji: Mother: 母 Father: 父 I'm not sure about older brother and sister. So, I won't include the kanji for those, as for younger sister and brother it is the same as before. In Romaji: Mother: haha Father: Chi chi Older Sister: ane Older Brother: ani Younger Brother: otouto Younger Sister: imoto
Here's a video with all the pronunciations and a few words I didn't put up there ^^
Good luck~!

@RosePark thank you ^^ I'll try to continue these~ if you have anything you would like to know let me know and I can try and do a card on it :D
@Goyo thats true Itachi's death made me very sad. And Sasuke really does get a lot of crap :\ I think he really does seem the most human. I never thought of it like that ^^
@SunnyV lots of people give sasuke a lot of sh*t but to be honest he seems the most human... I guess I like itachi bc he died being an older brother. That's always commendable
@SunnyV So much effort, love this! Please keep going~ ^^
@poojas no you're not hearing things xD they say chan instead of san when they are closer to the person. Like in Tokyo Ghoul Hinami calls Touka and Kaneki chan because she is pretty close to both of them. San is used to show more respect and when you don't really know the peraon.

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
