Hi, everybody! First, we have an announcement to make! Maggie and Yukari have just started a fun page on Facebook!

Hope you all visit us there!

:rrrr: Maggie Sensei Facebook

OK, this lesson is for my dear Twitter followers who have been studying with us.

As many of you already know, I have been tweeting one Super Basic Word everyday. ( !to right! Twitter account : Maggie Sensei.)

I have also been giving my followers a weekly quiz every Sunday. So if you want to try, please follow me on Twitter.

This is my third review lesson for all the Super Basic Words. This lesson will cover  the last 12 weeks.

That means you will learn a lot!

I hope this is useful for people who are not doing Twitter as well.

:kkk: How to study :

If you are a beginner, you can learn just the main words in romaji or hiragana. If you are more advanced, try learning the kanji along with the examples.

I made all the sound files so that you can click the audio buttons and listen to the pronunciation as well.

They are all random so you can start from any week.
