I am pretty engulfed in my Japanese learning journey currently, I’m fully engaged in wanikani and feel like I am making substantial progress, enough to the point that I am recognizing kanji left and right in anime, can pick up on key words when I consume content such as media/anime/movies.
My struggle is that I currently work about 70-80 hours a week with one day off, so I wake up extremely early to do my reviews/lessons. I am traveling to japan in January 2021 and my aim is to be mildly conversational fluent, being able to read signs and navigate comfortably. Besides WK I purchased: “Lonely Planet Japanese phrasebook & Dictionary”. it’s incredibly useful and has some key phrases but it seems a little daunting to study things from it at the moment. Should I continue my current routine? Is there a resource I could chip away at to develop my speaking skills?
Fortunately, I do have some downtime at my work so something like reading a book wouldn’t be frowned upon so that would suit me best, I do some WK reviews on my work computer whenever I have a chance as well.
Thanks in advanced!
