I was wondering about everyone’s weird little study habits. What do you do that most other people probably don’t do? And do you feel that it is a big plus in your studying, or do you experience it as more of a hindrance?
To start of, I’ll share my own “weird” habit. I started rewriting all articles and texts I read in my word processor in the vertical right-to-left format, with furigana next to every kanji (even those I know). I started doing this to get more accustomed to japanese texts, because the format always threw me off. The furigana I added later, both to aid me should my memory fail me, but mostly to get rid of the annoying habit of looking at the furigana and ignoring the kanji. Now that EVERY kanji has furigana, it’s a lot easier to ignore. In the (roughly) month since I started doing this, I feel that my reading skills and “feel” for grammar have improved at a way faster pace than beforehand.
Looking forward to all of your answers!
