Nihon Go Go Go

I’ve been stumbling around learning Japanese for a while now and as you might imagine it’s difficult to fit into a busy caretaker lifestyle.

But whilst pushing the floor cleaning machine along the other day and singing to myself under cover of the racket it makes I had an epiphany. Forget mnemonics and other pedagogical aids - what’s needed is to transpose everything into expository show tunes!

Since then I have expanded into complimentary styles such as Music Hall and a little Gilbert & Sullivan but it does appear to be doing the trick.

I may have to lose the terrible Anthony Newley / early David Bowie accent I affect when singing that sort of thing though.
