#PROGRESS POST #2
CURRENT WANIKANI LEVEL: 13
IN ONE MONTH I HOPE TO BE LEVEL… 17
I’ve been doing a level every 7 days pretty comfortable. Also, I just registered for the JLPT N4 in December, which means I’ll know 97% of the JLPT N4 Kanji 2 months in advance
LAST MONTH’S GOAL REPORT:
=> I reached lvl 13 like I wanted, 1 day before the end of the month.
=> I used KW every single day, just like I use WK. I’m pretty satisfied with this. At the beginning of August I was delayed 6 levels on KW compared to WK, but now I only have 2 levels to catch up.
=> Managed to continue talking every day with 2 Japanese natives
=> Only posted 1 moment out of 5 on HelloTalk this past month. It was a success though: 72 likes and 26 comments
=> Had lots of fun studying Japanese
=> Failed to watch every video of Japanese Ammo with Misa. I lost half of my notes at the beginning of this month and got a little disappointed. Only returned to study grammar during the 2nd half of August.
=> I completely failed with Tae Kim’s Grammar Guide. Like I said above, I wasted the first half of August and didn’t study any grammar.
=> I completely failed to learn about Anki and use it.
=> Didn’t post anything on Social Media about health advice this past month, which means that I didn’t add JP text to it either. This is something that I want to fix. However, I’m focusing more on another project right now. After I get that managed, I’ll be back to Social Media.
=> Didn’t use Houhou at all.
THIS MONTH’S GOAL:
=> For grammar, I’ll focus on completing the 14 videos (+ 6 video bonus) that I have left from Japanese Ammo with Misa.
=> After that, I’ll go back to using the Tae Kim’s Grammar Guide. I divided it by 51 lessons and I’ll do a lesson a day. Since this will be conjugated with Japanese Ammo’s videos for now, for the month of September doing 15 of these lessons is a good goal
=> I intend to reach lvl 17 on WK (589 Kanji + 97% N4 JLPT ✓)
=> I still have 2 levels left to unlock on KW. This month will definitely be easier in terms of KW usage, since I unlocked 4 levels + 4 levels (that I eventually leveled up on WK) last month.
=> Learn how decks work on Anki. I need to learn this to compensate my lack of vocab outside WK + it will also help me with some stuff in the University.
=> Currently having 2 close friendships on HelloTalk. I want to continue talking with both of them every day and go back to answer some people that were “left behind”. [Same goal as last month]
=> Post at least 3 moments on HelloTalk in JP/ENG/PT. That makes 1 every 10 days.
=> Don’t do more than what’s written in here for the sake of moving faster. I might burn out if I increase all this learning even more.
=> Continue learning about Japanese culture: watch videos, read about it, talk about it. Appreciate everything. This is my own special journey. I must enjoy it.
CURRENT JAPANESE RESOURCES:
WaniKani for Kanji
KaniWani to complement with WaniKani.
Anki for vocab outside WK.
Japanese Ammo with Misa for grammar.
Tae Kim’s Grammar Guide for grammar.
HelloTalk for exchanging messages with my language partners.
Youtube channels like Abroad in Japan, Asian Boss, Internationally ME, Rachel and Jun, Sharla in Japan, That Japanese Man Yuta and SherryBerry in Ehime for learning about Japan.
- FAVE: WK (Kanji was a serious problem for a while - WK is fixing me that very easily )
- LEAST FAVE: Anki (why: I don’t know how to work with it efficiently)
TRY NEW RESOURCE(S):
I seriously need to make Anki a habit! D:
CURRENT JAPANESE WEAKNESS: Vocab.
HOW I WILL IMPROVE ABOVE: Continue with WK and using Anki for the vocab outside WK.
“Spend each day trying to be a little wiser than you were when you woke up. Discharge your duties faithfully and well. Step by step you get ahead, but not necessarily in fast spurts. But you build discipline by preparing for fast spurts… Slug it out one inch at a time, day by day. At the end of the day–if you live long enough–most people get what they deserve.” - Charlie Munger
