5th Week

Posted by: anave | October 18, 2007 Comments Off on 5th Week |

皆さんようこそ!Welcome back to the Japanese Language Blog! Here I will tell you about del.icio.us, an online website organizing tool, and a few of the links I thought were most interesting from our collection on the LLC site.

Del.icio.us, found at http://del.icio.us/ , is an online bookmarking service. If you come across an interesting site, you may put it into your favorites and look over it later. By using Del.icio.us you can not only save these online so you can access them from any computer, but also share with other users. By looking through tags that you find interesting or need to research on, you can find what others thought most beneficial to them.
Del.icio.us will create a toolbar for itself, and won’t bother your internet surfing at all. It will even import bookmarks that you already have on your computer. Overall, Del.icio.us is a great tool for information gathering, comparable to Google.
There are many links to Japanese sites on our LLC website. Because it may be a bit intimidating, I’ll post some that have been most intersting to me.
The very first link, Japan Reference, is a very useful site. It is a gigantic database of facts about Japan, from modern culture to swords. It also has a “Practical” section that might be useful to anyone planning on visiting Japan.
Under the “random” section, the first two links lead to sites on Japanese Fashion. These are pretty interesting, and can cover the whole spectrum of fashion, from “hey, that’s awesome!” to “oh god, what is that thing?”
The fifth link in the “random” section leads to a series of essays by a Japanese student learning English, about what he had trouble with. It’s an interesting read, and will let you see what it’s like learning another language.
These are the links that I found most interesting, you may find others to be more to your tastes, so keep looking!
