New "Japan Quiz"

New "Japan Quiz"

How are your Japanese studies going? I just created a new "Japan Quiz" page. It contains quizzes that test your knowledge about Japan and the Japanese language. The questions are written in Japanese (they are also written in romaji, for people who haven’t studied Japanese writing). There are English translations and some explanations at the end for total beginners. I hope they will help to improve your reading skills, grammar, knowledge of Japanese culture and so on. Since I am planning to make a series of these quizzes, your feedback is greatly appreciated. Have fun with the quizzes!

Japanese Translation

「日本語クイズ」

日本語の勉強はどうですか。今回新しく、「日本語クイズ」というものを作ってみました。日本や日本語に関する知識を試すクイズです。問題は日本語で書かれています。(読み書きをまだ習っていない人たちのために、ローマ字でも書いてあります。)初心者のために、最後のページには英語訳と、解説もあります。このクイズが、読みの練習や、文法、日本文化に対する知識の向上に役立つといいなと思っています。この「日本語クイズ」を、シリーズとして作っていくつもりなので、感想や提案を聞かせてもらえるとありがたいです。楽しんでくださいね。
