My latest topic “Your WaniKani Level VS Your JLPT Level” did better than I expected and people seemed to love it. So I thought about making another one that is quite similar.
Again, we start with a false belief. I thought like 90%+ of Japanese learners wanted to learn the language because of video games/anime—at least that’s how I started. However, it’s not the case for a lot of people here in the forum. Which means, it’s time for a poll…actually two polls.
As usual, I will define the format to follow from the beginning so that we all have the same one. Here is an example.
- Why You Started: I wanted to be able to play video games in Japanese and watch anime without subtitles.
- Why You Are Still Doing It: Because it’s a challenge. If I can be fluent in Japanese, I can probably achieve any goal I want. It also makes me original compared to other people.
- Your Funniest Moment/Experience: I re-played some old Pokemon games. The first time I did it, I was literally stuck for like 3 hours in the first village. I couldn’t understand anything and the dialogues felt endless.
- Your Most Memorable Moment/Experience: Being able to do challenges like this Jaden Yuki VS Yugi Muto Transcript(Part 1) - 100% Done
- External Help: I live in France and I have no Japanese classes so 100% alone in my adventure so far.
- Your Final Goal: Being able to consume content/media in Japanese without looking up a dictionary every 5 seconds.
EDIT: There is a cake beside my name, someone tell Koichi I am not LVL 60 yet
