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…
I need to practice reading. I’m kind of at a place where my grammar’s still not great but I know a lot of kanji, so if only there were simple books that used Kanji I’d be golden but all the ones written like I can understand don’t use any. I’m trying to play through Pokémon Ranger in Japanese. I didn’t know until I bought the game that it’s 100% in hiragana/katakana. I can read some, enough to kind of know where to go, but a lot of it is completely unintelligible. Just long strings of kana. Doesn’t help that I don’t know any of the Pokémon’s’ names.
Speaking T_T… But I want to finish Wanikani first T_T … I have a language partner and his English is way better than my Japanese, it is so embarassing. >__<
Speaking to real alive humans.
Tried that and it seems useful. However, word of warning. I was answering using Japanese keyboard on iPhone and all the answers were coming up as false. I was puzzled as they looked this same as the answer given. Eventually I swapped to using English keyboard and then those answers were accepted.
Here’s one specifically from Genki. Genki – Verb/Adjective Conjugation Practice
They also have a bunch of videos and other resources that go along with the textbooks.
Yep. 100% speaking. I’m more just more comfortable sitting at home studying or immersing tbh.
I’ll look into that as a Japanese keyboard should be working also.
