I just finished exams, taking a year off university. Want to live in Japan for a few months during this time (prolly January to March). So want to learn the language, starting at zero.
Here’s my life all summer and probably fall too. Wanikani, as much as the system will let me take on each day. Studying them hard between reviews to try and get perfect. Also using a random Anki deck that shows me most of the same kanji.
Intersperse this throughout the day with some work in my Genki textbook/workbook, and practice with my Kanji from Zero & Japanese from Zero books.
I also watch random youtube videos from Japanesepod101, and anime so I don’t go crazy.
During the 1-hour commute by subway to and from my fun fun summer job, I listen to Pimsleur. This is all rounded out by various apps and games to reinforce stuff, and random videos.
All in all, about 8-12 hours of direct Japanese exposure each day. In 8 months, will I see any results?
I’m in the loop for almost a week now, and nothing better to do except keep soldiering along.
