Are you reading?

[Looks up and smiles at.]

Alpha! Well, I'm trying. It's still kind of hard...

*running over* What are you doing, Toboe?

Hi, Usopp. I'm practicing what Rakushun showed me.

He taught you to read? That quickly?

I'm still not that good at it yet... I can only get the really small ones and some of them are still hard.

Try reading aloud. Sometimes that makes words easier to figure out!

Mm, I've been trying to do that. It's hard when some of them don't make sense the way they sound.

Some letters can have different sounds depending on where they are in a word.

Take 'e' for example. In most words it sounds like "eh", but if it's next to another vowel it can sound like "ee".

How do you know if it's a vowel?

Date: 2010-09-01 12:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
The vowels are a, e, i, o, u and sometimes y!

All the other letters are called consonants.

And every language has different rules.

How does Mikage keep it all straight?

Lots and lots of practice~ after a while it becomes habit!

[This is such a strange and new experience. :o]

Mm, I'll practice everyday!

Don't worry. I have to learn as much as I can so I can try to remember it all when I change back!

Do wolves have a harder time learning to read than humans do?

We can't read at all. The letters are too hard to recognize.

Not at all? You can't recognize your name, either?
