日本語を 勉強している みなさん、こんにちは。もうすぐ、JLPTの テストが ありますね。もう、じゅんびは できましたか。がんばって ください! おうえんしています! :D
数日前、テレビ番組の中で、「的を射(い)る」と「的を得(え)る」はどちらが正しいか?という内容を放送していました。
私は、正確には、「的を射る」の方が正しいだろうとは思っていましたが、「的を得る」という表現もよく聞くような気がしていたので、どちらも正しいと思っていました。
自分でも、「それは的を得た発言ですね」というように、どちらかというと「得る」の方を使っているような気がしていました。
「的を得る」という表現は、正しくない!という方も少なくないようですが、実際には、日本人の40%が「得る」を使っているそうです。
また、「的を得る」という表現は、何と250年前の書物にも載っていました。ということは、最近使われ始めたわけではありません。
「的を射る」という表現は、弓道からきた表現だと思いますが、「得る」の方も「要領を得る」のように、うまく捉える、という意味があるので、間違いとはいえません。
このような例はたくさんあり、考え始めるときりがありませんが、私たち日本語教師にとっては楽しい時間です :)
All of us at Nihongo-Pro are excited to introduce Hiroba.

Hiroba (written 広場 or ひろば in Japanese) means "gathering place," where friends meet up to chat, hang out, and have fun--or, as Japanese say, 交流 (kooryuu).

That’s what we want Hiroba to be: A place for fans of Japan to meet, share experiences traveling to Japan, living in Japan, learning Japanese, reading manga, watching anime, making origami cranes, or anything else that comes to mind about Japan.

Each of us has a unique connection to Japan. Mine started (long, long ago) in high school, when I spent a year as an AFS student in a small town in Nara prefecture. Fifteen years old, I was strangely tall by Japanese standards in those days, and my feet were so big they had to special-order shoes for my school uniform.

Riding my bicycle home from school the first day, I toppled over making a turn. I was beet red with embarrassment, but my ever-kind host brother turned it into a language-learning opportunity: He taught me 転んじゃった (koronjatta) ("fell over"), which was the only word I understood in his explanation to his parents later that night! It was a fun, event-filled year, and I am forever indebted to my host family.

Since that time, I have studied Japanese on and off for 30 years. The language is fascinating and beautiful, indirect but rigorously logical, maybe the most civilized language in the world. I admire that civility in Japanese culture and people, too. The importance of 思いやり(omoiyari) ("consideration for others") has made Japan one of the safest, most peaceful--I would say most civilized--societies in the world.

Yes, I do love Japan. If you do, too, please tell us on Hiroba! Or, if you have a question about the language, the country, or anything else Japanese, speak up.

If you want to find chat friends, Hiroba is a great place to set up chat sessions in our free 24/7 chat room.

Nihongo-Pro è una scuola di giapponese online.

Messaggio da studente Nihongo-Pro
My Nihongo-Pro teacher is adept at helping me achieve my Japanese language goals.
I have taken lessons with Fujiwara-sensei for nearly a year and a half. Fujiwara-sensei carefully balances lesson time between reading, writing, speaking and listening. She quickly discerned my strengths and weaknesses in preparation for the JLPT and helped me accordingly. %READ_MORE%

Nihongo-Pro’s software is exceptional: It is simple to use and the choice of screen colours is easy on my eyes. I feel the whiteboard feature is a necessity when studying Japanese along with textbooks; a mere dialogue box for presenting lesson materials would be insufficient.

Nihongo-Pro’s software has lacked only one feature important in the study of Japanese: the ability for the instructor to prove the student’s handwriting of Japanese characters. I am pleased to hear of the new KakikataPad soon to be available for the Nihongo-Pro classroom.
