Yes, the long weekend is gonna be awesome! Although today I did a lot of work. Plus I’m in Kyoto so I will hit the Gion festival on Monday night. (Why are weekdays capitalized in English? Makes no sense really…)
As to other things. I should hopefully level up in another 3-4 days, meaning this will be my fastest level in while… being only 25 days instead of 30.
At least I’m making steady strides on Bunpro being over 1/3 done with N4. ^____^
That’s because days of the week are considered a proper noun、naming a specific person、place、thing or idea、thus are capitalised when written、the same way as your name is (and for the same reason). English lesson in Japanese forum over. Lol.
Agreed!!! Even though I’ve slowed down and not achieved as much as I wish I could at the moment 、I draw inspiration from this thread and the people doing a great job、which makes me not want to give up or feel bad about going slower. We will all get cake in the end!
YES! That’s why all my new level lessons are still waiting in a queue for me. I’m just taking a little breather and doing reviews to keep up. I don’t want to burn out…
There will always be slower and faster phases, as long as you don’t give up, you’re doing it right! Don’t beat yourself up over it, when you have more time/energy/resources you’ll get back to it
We have enough time until our goal and getting to take a few breathers along the way makes the whole journey more enjoyable (and more effective probably)
Through slow and fast, we’re in this together
I’ve been so busy too this past week, so I haven’t been able to visit the thread and Discord as much :<
I love what you said as well @avalia! It really cheered me up. We’ll get there one day and we’re all in this together
I think I’m waaayy too obsessed with that wkstats chart too, haha. I’ve been keeping it fairly consistent since level 6, but know it’s going to get ruined at some point due to vacations//work/life. I’m just going to have to accept it x__x
It was more of a rhetorical question. Sometimes I like the contemplate the strangeness of different languages. In Sweden, names of the weekdays are not proper nouns, but then neither is the name of languages, so neither are capitalized. Only actual names are capitalized (I’m sure there are exceptions since languages thrives on them) like country names, brand names, etc. ~End of Swedish lesson
Also, when it comes to speed, you haven’t got anything to worry about. Me though? At my current speed I’ll be about 13-15 levels higher than I am currently by the olympics. That isn’t even halfway to 60…
Well, you choose your pace yourself, so just slow down lessons when reviews are getting to about the level you can deal with. (Also don’t forget about ghost reviews if you have those turned on.) Or did you mean something else with pacing?
Thank you for explaining! The grammar is quite different 、isn’t it? Very interesting to think about.
As much as we say it’s a race、it’s not. You need to do WK the best way you can for you. It needs to fit into your life and learning style. Plus、if you go too fast it would be so easy to burn out、or not learn properly bc you’re rushing everything. I think you’re doing great! You’re here、you’re moving forward 、you’re learning and you’re a great friend to all the Olympians. Perfect!
Haha, no worries on the explanation of English. I don’t mind, but there was no need was what I meant. I love learning about languages, the syntax and grammar and stuff, so I’m glad you told me.
The more I learn of Japanese grammar the more I realize Swedish and English grammar are very similar. Not exactly the same, but far far more similar than I thought before. Because Japanese is not even close to similar.
I could go faster if I was allowed to do WK in Japanese classes. But as I’m not, I do the best I can to keep progressing and this group helps me get to my WK lessons more often, so I will keep hanging with you guys even when it is clear I can’t hit the deadline no matter what I do.
