You’ve been studying for a while now. Gained a little confidence. You’re not yet where you want to be, but you are getting there. You may have tested your progress before, but I bet you there is one test you’ve never taken. Can you beat a baby’s Japanese?
NTT Communication did a study ranking the top words a Japanese baby first learns to say. You’re smarter than a baby. So you should know all of these…right? Well it’s time to find out.
Take a deep breath, and read through the following short list (which I rearranged in order from easiest to hardest for a foreigner)
Out of the 21, how many did you get right? Leave your score and what you had trouble with in the comments! I missed the last few (the last 4 are especially difficult as these are baby exclusives).
