    18 MAR 2024 · Been a while! Ohisashiburi and Gobusata, everyone! Welcome to March and to episode 63 of the Ohazassu Podcast. Since it's been a while, bit of a catch up to start off with. Things have been hectic, but OK. Today we covered kanji radicals (bushu) and how they can help us learn and remember characters. We also looked into some key differences between Australian and Japanese healthcare systems when specialists are involved. Been a while since we did a chapter review of the book Bilingual Life & Reality; we covered chapter 7 in this episode, which is about accents in bilinguals. As always, we did a Word of the Day at the end of the episode, related to one of the topics in today's episode, coz that's what we do! Bye for now!
