ティアラの作文 #一: インドネシアのゆうめいな人 「カルティニ」

Some of you might already know that I’m currently learning a new languange; 日本語! It is actually very omoshiroi, but I still have a hard time memorizing the abundant vocabularies. What do I expect from my goldfish memory anyway?

In order to improve my ability in Japanese, I decided to step up my game; I will post some sakubun here on my blog. The first sakubun that is assigned to me is「あなたの国のゆうめいな人についてかいてください」which means that I have to write about a yuumeinahito a.k.a famous person from Indonesia. My sensei let us choose whoever famous person we want to write and I choose Kartini. To be frank, I chose her for no particular reason. I just happened to find her name among other famous Indonesian people on Google search and I was like “writing about Kartini will be cool!” then there it is.

For this writing I read some articles in English, highlighted some important events, then translated it all by myself. I use some words that are already taught, phrasing the sentences all by myself, and look up the dictionary for words I have no idea about. My Japanese is not sugoi yet, I’m still on basic level. So I apologize in advance for incorrect grammar and improper wordings. :)

Without further ado, here I proudly present my very first sakubun. Yay! #proud

カルティニ

カルティニは4月21日1879年にジェパラで生まれました。子どものとき、ホラダの小学校でならいました。りゅうがくをもらうとき、カルティニのりょうしんはカルティニにけっこんすると言いました。けっこんしてから、だいいちインドネシアの女子の小学校をはじめました

カルティニのしゅみはてがみお書くことです。がいこくじんにたくさんてがみおもらいなした。インドネシアの女のエマンシペーションを話しました。しにましてから、カルティニのメルとも、アベンダノンさん、はカルティニのてがみを書きあらわした。本のタイトルは「Habis Gelap Terbitlah Terang」です。

インドネシアでカルティニは女のエマンシペーションをしょうちょうします。まいねん4月21日にカルティニの日があります。

That’s it! Very short, eh?

Despite how terrible my first sakubun is, I am very satisfied with the result! The fact that I can finally merge two things that I actually like (cough, engineering, cough) makes me even happier. It feels so good I might cry.. And back to the sakubun, my experience in writing in English teaches me that writing something in a language you’re not really familiar with is really hard, but practice will eventually make it perfect. Though not that perfect perfect of course. So no matter how flawed your writing is, as long as you see improvement, keep writing! #NoteToSelf

    And all that I can read from that sakubun was only ‘no’ word :v
