๐Ÿ”Š ๐ŸŽ™ Listen Every Day Challenge - Winter 2023 โ„ ๐Ÿงค

Jan 17, Tue of Week 4 of Winter Q1 2023 :snowman::snowflake:

So-matome N3 Listening Ch.3 [2/6]. Weather and traffic report. Long numbers are difficult to be listened to, and as a result, time of arrival in an airport. Year numbers (in ใ‹ใŒใฟใฎๅญคๅŸŽ ) are probably even harder.

I looked at audiobook.jp, which also has a book club in this forum (perhaps I should see Natively too?); as well as what was in my wish list. Other than the theme, BGM is a decision point. Particularly what caught my eyes as the next candidate is ไธ–็•Œใ‹ใ‚‰็ŒซใŒๆถˆใˆใŸใชใ‚‰ (and the text).

Pokemon EP.10, but I am not sure if I am ready to watch with no sub yetโ€ฆ

ๅ›ใฎ่†ต่‡“ใ‚’ใŸในใŸใ„ Ch.6 [2/2]. I am getting more irked by the use of ใ€Œใ‚ถ:wavy_dash::wavy_dash:ใ€ใใ‚“, for around 4-5 times in the track. I also listened to other ่ดใๆ”พ้กŒโ€™s, but they are limited by understanding and availability of the text. (I am eligible for ่ดใๆ”พ้กŒ until 31 Jan.)

ใ‹ใŒใฟใฎๅญคๅŸŽ March [7/10]. More sub-stories.


Itโ€™s about convenience, really. Listening-only fills into some of my time pretty well. It is also a little stimulating, so it becomes a priority.

However, my understanding is still worrisome. Itโ€™s currently the best if I have a text. Still, I focus more on quantity than quality. This is in contrast with reading, which I mostly understand very well; as well as mine well.

Watching with JP subtitles has to be chosen carefully as well. Some of them, I am sure I hear almost every words and understand the hearing; while some are more focused on reading, and picking-out-understanding by sound is probably not really working.

VN, which I didnโ€™t post in this thread, is the case that I slow down enough to ensure that I hear every words, along with reading and learning. Some of them, I might not understand the first time, but I am sure I would, for the second or third time. Of course, there are more difficult lines as well where I just mostly give up. (I still would have some cloudy understandings.)

I am not sure about active immersion part, but probably I would want to know if I really remember and not miss the same context shortly later on or not. Itโ€™s more about memory (short-to-medium term) than SRS. I learn more vocabularies and do comprehension exercises alongside for the hope of improving.

Perhaps for comprehension, taking a break and pondering, and even sleeping, might be quite important. I donโ€™t want to absorb too much per session/day. Intercalating with other activities may allow increasing session counts.
