「毎日、一語つぶやいてるよ!」

= Mainichi ichigo tsubuyaiteruyo!

= I have been tweeting one word per day!

Hi, everyone!

Many of you may have already followed me on Twitter. (Maggie Sensei)

This lesson is for all my twitter followers who have been studying Super Basic Words with me every day.

:rrrr: For those of you who don’t know about this, I have been tweeting a super basic word every day and giving  a weekly quiz on Sundays — all on Twitter.

Time flies and it has been a half year since I started doing this.

I would like to encourage you to review all the words you have learned so far. They are all random so you can start with any word but if you haven’t seen the first review lesson, go check here!

If you are a beginner, don’t worry about the kanji. Just hiragana is fine to start with. And if you are an advanced beginner, try to learn how you read the kanji and example words.

がんばって!= ganbatte! = Good luck!
