Learning Nihongo

I started with Nihongo classes from today. Nihongo in plain speak is "Japanese Language" in Japanese :) Go figure... It was an amazing start and I really enjoyed learning basic words for introducing oneself and some other words in regular conversations. We also started learning to read and write Japanese. It is a pictograph based language and we started with Hiragana characters today. I really enjoyed making the symbols and I hope that I can devote time to learn this beautiful language and develop it further :)

In a nutshell:

Hajimemashita (Hello)
Wata shi wa Naveen desu (My name is Naveen)
Indo jin desu (I am from India)
Engineer desu (I am an Engineer)

Kon ban wa (Goodnight) :)
