So I’m new here, hello.
I’ve been studying Japanese for a few years on and off, am now working as an ALT in Japan so I can study more, and while I’ve made some progress I feel like I’ve reached “the brick wall”. Essentially I feel like I’m at a point where my current biggest hurdle is my lack of vocabulary, but I’m also at a point where very few new words are sticking. As a result I feel like I’m not making any real progress beyond incredibly simple Japanese and it’s infuriating. Sadly I’m not in a big city so I don’t have as many opportunities to practice as I would like.
Does anyone have any tips or tricks for how to get past this particular mental block so I can truly level up, as it were?
