This week's proverb is " Chiri mo tsumoreba yama to naru". It literally means, "Even dust will make mountain if piled up". It is similar to the English expression, "A penny saved is a penny earned".

Here is some vocabulary from the proverb.

tsumoru --- be piled up
yama --- mountain
naru --- to become
