Good job! 頑張ってね! ^^

Also, may I ask, where do you usually go to actually speak Japanese? I see it says Discord group, etc. Any recommendations? I’d love to actually use the spoken language more :slight_smile:

I usually take online lessons on Italki. I am also in a Swedish-Japanese language exchange group on Discord, but I don’t take part in the sessions very often, that is because I have a 10 months old baby who takes all of my time! :see_no_evil: But for me, I feel like having free conversations with a teacher on Italki works best!

Hi again! I just wanted to tell you that I have joined Clubhouse, which is an app where you can audio-chat, and I really recommend this for speaking Japanese because you can basically speak with a native at any time of the day! You will be surprised about how many Japanese people are night owls! :owl: I’ve never spoken so much Japanese in my own home before. :see_no_evil:
Take care!:sparkles:

Oh! I heard about that, would love to join, but I hear it’s invite only. Any chance you could send me one or are they limited? I would really love to join <3

Yes, it is invite only! Unfortunately I’ve already spent my one invite on somebody else. :confused: I hope you can find someone who can let you in! :pray:t2:

Thank you ^^ Well, I just realized it’s iOS only anyways, so I’ll have to wait until it - hopefully - comes to Android at some point :slight_smile: I really love the idea behind it, though, seems like a perfect way to practise speaking/listening to Japanese language.

Oh yes you are right, it’s iOS only! Didn’t think of that! It will probably come to Android in a not so far future! It really is a good tool. :slightly_smiling_face:

Write kanji

Today I added a new point to my study log - Write kanji. :writing_hand: Now when I’ve reached level 18 on Wanikani I came across some kanji I’ve never seen before and I figured I might as well try to write them to help me remember. And also, I’ve really missed writing kanji by hand! 劇、虚など。(lvl 17)
