建築

けんちく

kenchiku

architecture  (建築する: to build, construct)

例 / れい / rei  / example: (notice the feminine use of ね。。。 and わ) 

(From a blog where a prospective student is struggling with the idea of studying architecture because it would be so difficult).

大学に行きたくてね、建築系の大学に行きたいね。。。建築って他の学科より偏差値は高いし、このままの学力だったら、国公立わ。。かなり厳しいのさ。。。

だいがく に いきた-くて ね, けんちく-けい の だいがく に いきたい ね。。。けんちく-って た の がっか だったら、こっこうりつ わ。。。かなり きびしい の さ。。。

daigaku ni ikita-kute ne, kenchiku-kei no daigaku ni ikitai ne…kenchiku-tte ta no gakka dattara, kokkouritsu wa…kanari kibishii no sa….

I want to go to a university, you know? I really want to go to a university connected with architecture…but if it’s architecture…I mean, if it’s a different university department at a national university….that’s going to be so strict…
