Weather: Sunny Plan: Akagi JHS

The weather was really nice today. Spring is coming fast. I created a plan for what to do in my free time at work last week. The last free period of the day, I write in my journal in Japanese and post it here. The first free period I study Arabic. Today I wrote my first word. It is written "بَتَّ," pronounced "batta," and means "to achieve." After the Arabic period, I read the news. Then in the third free period, I practice Japanese. I will work hard in Japanese as well!

平成18年4月24日の日記
天気: 晴 行事: 赤来中

今日は本当にいい天気でした。だんだん春が来ています。暇がある時間目、先週から計画を作って使いました。一番最後の時間目、生活ノートを書きポストします。一番最初のはアラビア語です。今日、初めての単語を書きました。「بَتَّ」と書く、「バッタ」と言う発音、「達成する」という意味の言葉です。アラビア語の後でニュースを読みます。その後で日本語を練習します。日本語もがんばります。

  • Grats on your first Arabic word!
  • How hard is it to type in Arabic on modern keyboards? I assume there's a switching mechanism similar to the kata/hiragana keyboards, but can all symbols be represented?

    (And congrats!)
    • I have to find an overlay for my keyboard. There are only 29 letters in the alphabet, so all are represented, but it is guesswork to know which is what since there are a bunch of different ways to transliterate the script. I wish there was something like romaji for Arabic.

      As for adding Arabic support for XP, it is cake. I just went to the Regional Settings Control Panel, added Arabic, and rebooted. That's it!
