I am currently at level 7, and will be at level 8 by the end of this week. Once I reach level 10 (as recommended by tofugu,) I am going to start working through the Genki 1 textbook and workbook. I am planning on doing one chapter a week (each chapter is about 6-8 pages of reading, plus the worksheets) so I will plan for about 3-4 months to finish it all. Because of course, if I really don’t understand something I may slow down a bit, or if I am really understanding I may speed up a little, but for the most part I like to go at a constant but not rushing pace.
And my start date will be Thursday, July 11. (EST)
I am looking for anyone on this forum who has similar plans, to be my study partner. We can keep up with how each other is doing, help with misunderstandings and research, and double check questions in the workbooks, because it’s meant to be used in a class environment.
If you would like to be this person, then please leave a reply below with details on your current wk level, plan for genki, timezone, and we can see whether we would be a good fit. Then, I would love to use a messaging app such as discord, and friend you on there so we can chat in real time (no voice calls, please.)
Also, if multiple people work for my plans, then of course we could make a group chat and all help each other, no reason it has to just be one person.
ALSO, if you do not really match up with my above plans, such as being at a very different wk level, or on a different genki book, etc, then please leave a comment anyways and maybe someone else will see your comment and you can pair up with them!
Oh, and if you know of any other places to ask this question, then just let me know.
