Now more serious: my grammar routine sucks. Basically, I try to find similar grammar patterns first and I try to study them together. I focus on their differences and I take notes in a big word file and that’s it. This helps me a lot with reviewing because I can easily review every detail of a certain grammar point (and compare it to others) in less than 2 minutes.
The problem with my technique is that I’m a perfectionist. I don’t like proceeding to the next step without having all my questions answered. I’m that dude in class that keeps asking why, basically.
These last 7 months, that technique kinda worked. I’m on a N4/N3 level. However, I know I could clearly learn a lot faster in a lot less time if I wasn’t forced to search the deep web for answers to my questions. I get paralyzed when I have too many questions.
So this January, I’m starting having a online class on iTalki every week. I’ll be studying grammar throughout the week and take note of my questions and then I’ll get all my answers in the 1vs1 class. Plus, I’ll be improving my speaking.
I use Bunpro for having a notion of grammar points available for studying, its SRS to review them and their reading recommendations to learn. Most of the time, I also end up searching on Google.
