Now Out: Essay 1358 on 酬 (reward) and 5 New-Monics

The 265th essay has posted! Essay 1358 on 酬 (reward; to reciprocate) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

Learn to say all of the following: “He was paid well for the work,” “The lawyer’s fee was very high,” “He was too proud to accept any reward,” and “The enemy fired back at us.” Find out how the Japanese talk about nonmonetary rewards, unpaid work, executive pay, and (rather randomly) heckling. Also learn about how housecalls are still a thing in Japan. 

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

Also, Ulrike has produced the following new-monics (which are free!):

威 (1002: to dominate with force)
肩 (1212: shoulder)
攻 (1247: attack)
絞 (1261: to strangle)
飽 (1802: to have had enough)
