Ugh I originally did this for 2 months or so in the old thread, but tbh I’m just gonna start over.
PROGRESS POST #1:
CURRENT WANIKANI LEVEL: 19
IN ONE MONTH I HOPE TO BE LEVEL… 20. I’ve got 1k reviews, just really need to get through those. No more lessons until my apprentice queue has less than 100 items.
LAST MONTH’S GOAL REPORT: n/a
THIS MONTH’S GOAL: clear out my reviews on wk/memrise/anki. Start Nihongo Challenge Bunpou + Yomu. Do… 3 chapters I guess, of An Integrated Approach to Intermediate Japanese. Finish Pokemon X for the love of … anything.
CURRENT JAPANESE RESOURCES: An Integrated Approach to Intermediate Japanese, Nihongo Challenge Bunpou + Yomu, WaniKani, memrise, Anki (v2k + custom decks), A LOT of 3ds games (Pokemon X [so close to being done], Pokemon Omega Ruby [halfway], Pokemon Sun [just finished Melemele], Youkai Watch [ch7 out of 11], Zelda no Densetsu: Toki no Ocarina [after the Deku Tree], Monster Hunter 4 [this is mostly just for messing around with], Tobidase Doubutsu no Mori, Hikudasu Hippaland, Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon [just met my partner], Pochi to! Yoshi Wool World). I also have two Japanese readers and the first volume of カゲロウデイズ, not sure when I wanna tackle those. After AIAtIJ maybe?
FAVE: my 3ds hands down hahaha. AIAtIJ is really really good though. I like it way more than Genki and JtMW.
LEAST FAVE: anything srs is a pain and I just wanna have a reasonable amount of reviews ;n;
TRY NEW RESOURCE: カゲロウデイズ／those Japanese readers. Maybe. Start using Nihongo no Mori regularly (wanna make it through all the Ekubo eps about things I’m kinda shaky on). Maybe start reading NHK Easy News regularly again (it’s so boring though).
CURRENT JAPANESE WEAKNESS: Grammar. Focus. I.e. sitting down and doing things instead of goofing off. Also actually looking things up while playing games; I’ve gotten into a habit of not using a dictionary since I understand the gist of it anyway and don’t need it to know what’s going on. It’s making me really lazy though. I really need to just stare at a sentence and look up things until I understand it 110% as opposed to 98%.
HOW I WILL IMPROVE ABOVE: AIAtIJ. Being more diligent (ahaha yeah right).
TIP/ADVICE FOR LEARNING JAPANESE: I don’t know if anyone has this problem but yeah, don’t get too comfortable with just ‘knowing what’s going on’/‘getting the gist of things.’ Look things up.
