My first two attempts of learning Japanese have failed miserably. Now I am back, trying to avoid the mistakes of the past. I figured what I need the most is a long-term strategy as well as achievable short-term goals. Since I work fulltime and are in a relationship, time is finite resource. Nevertheless i am serious about learning Japanese and i’d love to have your feedback.
Regarding WaniKani: I try not to have more than 150 Apprentice items in the rotation to keep the workload manageable. If I come across a Kanji i’m writing it down once (i don’t do this for radicals and vocab).
My goals till the end of December:
- Reach WK Level 13
- Refresh Katakana
- Finish the Genki 1 Vocab Course on Memerise
- Reach Chapter 20 on Human Japanese
- Do little daily reading on NHK New easy
In January/February 2019 I’d like to:
- Continue WK
- Work my way through Genki 1
- Complete Human Japanese 1
- Add listening to my study schedule
- Practices writing/grammar with a blog in Japanese (one entire per Week about 15-20 sentences, puppy picture optional).
- Finding a language buddy to actually speak Japanese.
What do think? Is this a viable strategy?
PS: Apologies for any mistakes i’ve overlooked the ol’ english is not my first language.
