A level / GCSE Japanese Revision & Teaching Materials  

Minasan Ogenki desuka?
Welcome to Sakai sensei's A-level Japanese / GCSE Japanese support page. The aim of this page is to share learning resources I developped with anyone who learns GCSE / A-level Japanese in the UK. I hope my site is helpful for your Japanese learning.

If you have any materials you would like me to develop, please contact here. I cannot guarantee, but I will try.


New: I have added AS and A2 (A-level) Kanji lists and mini cards. Go to
Kanji/Vocab section.

This is a good start of Eneloop use: 

 

Did you know?

I am sure you use dozens of batteries every year for your digital cameras, mp3 players, remote controls, clocks etc. A Japanese electric company 'SANYO' has invented fantastic rechargeable batteries called ENELOOP. With ENELOOP you can recharge the batteries for 1000 times, which saves your money and helps you to stop damaging the earth by disposing of very toxic batteries. I have been using the ELELOOP for years, and found that they last very long when you use them for digital cameras. Also the energy loss when you are not using them is very few. I am very pleased that a Japanese company invented such meaningful batteries for us.

ENELOOP costs more than usual batteries and you may have to buy a battery charger for them, but it pays well in the long run and makes you feel much less guilty when you use batteries, because you do not throw away any batteries. SANYO has been strong in battery area over years, if you may not know. So you can trust them.

Handwriting fonts

(Also available from
Japan Foundation London Language Centre Website)
This font is developed based on my hand writing. Hiragana and Katakana are genuinly my hand writing. Some Kanji are my hand writing, but many are automatically generated by computer. I practised calligraphy since I was nursery for about 20 years or so, so I suppose at least Hiragana and Katakana writing is fine. This font includes what is called "dai ichi suijun" only. You cannot use Kanji, which is "dai ni suijun, but dai ichi suijun is good enought up to A2.
