  1. Talking about your age

    Slide 1 - Talking about your age

    • Flipped classroom support for JBlog textbook 1 page 33
  2. ~ years old

    Slide 2 - ~ years old

    • This is the easy kanji for years old :
    • There is a more difficult kanji for years old that appears in the song on the next slide.
    • You don’t need to remember this one though. Just try to learn the easy one today. The stroke order for this kanji appears at the bottom of page 111 in your JBlog textbook 1.
    • When you watch the song, you will notice that the romaji for the ages appears differently to what you are studying in JBlog. This is because the song has written it using the kunrei-shiki system. Confused?
    • Turn to page 38-39 to read senpai’s explanation of what this means.

  4. なん才ですか。

    Slide 4 - なん才ですか。

    • How old are you?
    • To ask someone there age, you say :
    • なんさいですか。
    • Nan sai desu ka.
    • You can ask the age of a specific person by placing their name at the beginning of the sentence. Eg :
    • How old is Mary?
    • Maryさん は なん さい です か。
    • Mary san wa nan sai desu ka.
    • How old is Tom?
    • Tomくん は なん さい です か。
    • Tom kun wa nan sai desu ka.
    • How old is Mrs Campbell?
    • Campbell せんせい は なん さい です か。
    • Campbell sensei wa nan sai desu ka.
  5. Pronunciation practice

    Slide 5 - Pronunciation practice

    • Let’s listen to how the pronunciation sounds for each of the ages in the table below. This table appears on page 33 of Jblog textbook.
  6. 才   です。

    Slide 6 - 才 です。

    • Saying your age as a sentence.
    • When you want tell some your age, you usually just say the number + sai desu.
    • Eg I am 14 years old.
    • 十四才です。Juu yon sai desu.
    • You can say the age of a specific person by placing their name at the beginning of the sentence. Eg :
    • Mary is 13 years old.
    • Maryさん は 十三さい です 。
    • Mary san wa juu san sai desu.
    • Some ages are a bit tricky eg issai (1 year old); hassai (8 years old); jussai (10 years old) and hatachi (20 years old). Hatachi is a special age for Japanese people, as it is the age they become an adult and are allowed to vote.
    • Watch out for 九才 too. It means 9 years old but the pronunciation is special. Although there are 2 ways to pronounce 9 (ku and kyuu), you need to say kyuu sai desu. If you choose the other pronuniciation (ku sai desu) it has another meaning of “I smell!”. Best not to use it then, heh!
