If you GEt a good hold of the weeds, you KAn pull them right out. SHI TAught me that. The weeds don’t look so good anyway, they are really SAGEy looking.

なか, ちゅう, 中 readings, N5 kanji practice



In the middle of the garden, we have some nice CHUUlips. Be careful not to NAKA flower down. We need to take this path through the rectangular flower bed.

Time for some rest. Let’s KYUU up for the resting tree. It’s the giant tree over there with the low branches. You need to bow to get underneath the tree. You hungry? I’ll give YA SUMU food.

Stop! I KAught you stealing my NAN! What are you doing? It’s not possible (可) to bow to apologize for that. Don’t steal a man’s bread, man!

It’s okay. Let’s head to the SENter of the tree where they are serving free SAKI. The serving station is ahead of you there. See the guy standing behind the table holding out the cup of SAKI?

That was refreshing. I think we ERAdicated all the weeds. Now let’s go somewhere NYUU. Let’s enter this part of the garden and get HIGH on some different weeds while doing some stretches. To start, lift your right arm over your head and stretch it to the left.






That’s it for part 4.  Stay tuned for this continuing series and take some time to practice some of these kanji now. See you in a few weeks with more!
