Just read the level 0 story in the White Rabbit Press app. Well, I should say I listened first, trying to see how much I could understand from just listening, see if I could separate it into different words and such. It went better than I expected, but also realized that if I have zero idea what I’m about to hear, then it is much harder. After a couple of paragraphs it was much easier to understand because I already had context. Well imagine that, haha.
I think I looked up 4 words, two words to double check my guess / double check if I was thinking of the right word. The other two were ones I had no idea.
The story was kinda sad, you know proverbs or fables can be. But it is interesting because it seemed to apply to me right now. In two weeks, I get on a plan to Japan, and about a week after that I start Japanese classes at a school there. And I feel this interesting pull to just do all the fun stuff right now, stuff I do in my free time. Because I know more of it will be used for things outside my control, as in I’ll have classes and need to go to them. But when winter comes, eeeh… when lessons starts, I want my mind in the right place and as far along with Japanese as I can!
