Now Out: Essay 1020 on 悦 (Delight) and 7 New-Monics

The 183rd essay has posted! Essay 1020 on 悦 (delight, pleasure, happiness, joy) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

Learn to talk about delight and pleasure, sexual and otherwise. See how the Japanese refer to religious exultation, and peek into a monk's daily life. Find out how to say, "I'm so happy for you," "I am very pleased to hear the news," and "I am most humbly delighted" (which is handy if you meet a VIP!). Get some culture by reading about fine artists, writers, a singer, and a folk-craft movement. 

Using the accompanying Phrase Maze game on the Character Home Page, you can practice the vocabulary in the essay after reading it. 

Also, Ulrike has produced a batch of new-monics (which are free!):

量 (600: quantity)
冷 (604: to cool)
老 (609: old)
圧 (612: pressure)
演 (621: performance)
仮 (625: temporary)
糧 (1912: supply of food)
