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 かがみの孤城 ) 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 世界から猫が消えたなら (and the text).
Pokemon EP.10, but I am not sure if I am ready to watch with no sub yet…
君の膵臓をたべたい Ch.6 [2/2]. I am getting more irked by the use of 「ザ:wavy_dash:」くん, for around 4-5 times in the track. I also listened to other 聴き放題’s, but they are limited by understanding and availability of the text. (I am eligible for 聴き放題 until 31 Jan.)
かがみの孤城 March [7/10]. More sub-stories.
It’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. It’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 didn’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. It’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 don’t want to absorb too much per session/day. Intercalating with other activities may allow increasing session counts.
