You remind me of an other one. I bought some children book a few months ago. My 2 year old found them and asked me to read them… It was the first time I pronounced words in Japanese after 2 years and a half of studying. I did not know what I would sound like. Very embarrassing.

Yes.
Reading.

I am sorry 🥲

I may find some willpower to read something today… but it’s not certain…

Wow, thank you so much for this topic and story. I realized that I have the same problem too (although I am only on chapter 9 in Genki 1).

Can you recommend some app or resource for practise? I found Japanese Conjugation Practice , looks nice. Anyone know any conjugation practise resource?

There are some conjugation practice tools here:

Ah, and the one @d-hermit listed above. I should add that to the list actually.

Shadowing. I used to do a fair bit of it but don’t anymore. I said in my study log that I’d make a plan to fit it in more this week so I’m working on that.

Writing real sentences. I try to fit in a fair bit of handwriting/kanji stroke practice but I barely ever write. I should keep a journal but don’t.

I used to write a weekly diary to practice my proactive recall for vocab, grammar and kanji but quickly feel out with that after being in on and off lockdown since March. There’s only so much you can talk about workwise and what you do without leaving your house ;_;

Listening, speaking, reading books, shadowing and creating my own sentences. There’s just not enough time right now…

Why not😋 10 characters🤣

I think the thing I’m working on the least is vocab outside of what WaniKani gives you… I am slogging through Genki at snails pace, but it’s better then not doing anything at all :see_no_evil:

I’m getting a bachelor in Japanese this semester. I should practice more Japanese

I don’t want to talk about it.
It makes my brain hurt.

Speaking, listening, and producing my own Japanese. Pretty much the only thing I’m somewhat okay at is reading, and I’m not even great at that. I just started reading my first light novel and I’m not even 20 pages in yet and it’s been hell. I’m over 3 years in at this point and I can tell this is going to be a long journey…
