It’s been 20 days since I took the JLPT N4 test and stopped studying EVERY day. It’s great to teak a break but now I’m back. I have studied since but probaby only 1-2 hours a week for the past 3 weeks or so. I was almost at level 11 wanikani, at 70% but then stopped now I have over 500 reviews. wah.
I’m listening to this artist called stick figure while studying tonight. Practicing listening and kanji today.
Side note: I need to edit my videos from Japan earlier this year and post them.
Still studying a lot. This weekend I:
- Practiced some listening drills.
- Also listened then wrote down translations.
- Practice causative forms. Also along with Genki chapter 22
- Reviewed some older lessons.
Need to review lessons from Japanese by Hanako. (https://www.japanesebyhanako.com/)
Enter more cards into Anki.
Life happens. I didn’t spend all day studying as much as I’d like. Which I think is a good thing. It’s easy for me to lock myself indoors all day and be in front of a computer or a book.
Touched on causative forms today, and some grammar review. Reviewed some notes and one lesson. I’m practicing some kanji now and I think this will be a routine now at night since it’s kinda soothing and a good way for me to unwind.
- I’ve gone to Japan twice. Once in April and another time in July.
- I sold my house and moved.
- I’m about to purchase another place. Thankfully, I’m not moving right away.
- I’m taken on a lot more responsibility at work.
I sat down one or twice over the weekend and on Monday to go through my wanikani reviews. I got down to 150 yesterday and am now back to 201 that need to be completed. Up to my waist in reviews lol.
I took out a couple of my N4 books yesterday to start going through them.
Also, more reviews of my notes I’ve been taking over the past year!!
It’s here. N4 exam cram time!
Because so much has happened since my last post.
Like, I went back to Japan again! I also got stuck in Hiroshima in July during the severe flooding.
I’m almost to level 10 wanikani and I’m also studying for the N4 test. It’s been a week since I’ve logged into wanikani and now I have a whopping 410 reviews to do. I’m sure, as I progress, it will be even worse if I don’t log in every day.
I’ll start blogging more real soon. Weekly progress updates, etc.
Since I got to level 8 on Friday before the holiday weekend. I pretty much slacked off from wanikani all weekend. Did some studying out of Genki II though. Up early all week for a product class for work. Welp, time to get some quick breakfast and go at it.
Man this month has been tough. It took me almost a month to get to level 8. Work has been busy. Started class again. However, the class description and listing is not what it turned out to be. The class started 5 chapters ahead of what it had in the description. We’re 3 weeks in and I’m still not caught up yet. Almost. I’ll push through.
Oh, and I’m going back to Japan this summer!
Here’s some pictures from my the last night in April. It was a great time. Great food, great company. A great cap on a great trip.
Got into level 7 on wanikani last night. I also found out about this site https://www.satorireader.com/. It seems pretty awesome. I may subscribe after my trial period.
