This weekend was very interesting. I was not busy at all this week end. I had a friend come over on Friday. But Saturday and Sunday I’ve been working on nothing but Japanese. Going through phrases and I adjectives, and na adjectives. after spending special time with those I feel like I got a better handle on them now that I did before. Now I think I can learn some more adjectives and start piecing together verbs and adjectives. this is beginning to feel really long but its better than it was before. Hopefully I’ll be able to get more done tomorrow maybe not as long since I’m not off from work but should be pretty good. Now it’s time to go to bed talked two guys later.
I am still fighting to make it through studying. I skip a day here and there but my mind setting is “get it done”. I may not be able to post BUT i can get some Surusu done or Anki stuff. I believe i am about to hit 200 kanji. Not much but i’m chipping away at it.
Some updates on my Japanese learning. Great news is i caught up with all my REPS. Which i had over 160. Which is too much. However i am able to recognize a bit more now than i did before. I missed 火曜日(Tuesday) and 金曜日(Friday) so i had to catch up quite a bit. Those days ill need to miss due to my Band Practice and hanging out days so i’m not stuck at home like a loser with no life hahaha. Anyway, Yesterday i met a 日本人 named とき. Now that i know there’s at least one person to talk too, i can try to speak. Man did i suck. Good thing is I’m not afraid to make a few mistakes. Soon i have to talk to my penpal from tokyo, Which should prove a challenge. Soon ill make an effort to read more and get better. よし！
talk to you tomorrow.
So i got a penpal from myLanguageExchange.com and we got to exchange emails and now writing to her. Which is Awesome!! I spent most of the evening today using Surusu.com to get 35 kanji cards in and repped about 40 times.
Then wrote an email to my penpal, which took about an hour or so. By deciphering and breaking down the sentences i am kinda getting the SOV concept. What throws it off is some of the particles. Its not too confusing but i do forget some of the purposes of like say “が” or “も” Theyre not hard to notice, just to remember the functions.
It was fun. Another day down. I am at leat about 200 kanji currently. がんばって！
I feel that now i can do this. And just to throw it out there, i am consistently listening to either radio or watching JTV. Even during work. Ha Hat of mad listening skills!
Today i managed to get plenty of lisstening done. However; i was able to catch up on my WaniKani Studies. Which is great, ive been slacking on it. so i did a bunch and got at least 33 Kanji and vocab done. Today i also watched some youtube videos about 日本語 grammar. Now whether it soaks up thats another story. i just gotta practice somehow. In the meantime I’m watching Love Hina to get some japanese in as well. I tell ya it feels nice to work quite a bit on this. So far im able to hear things in radio that makes like a little sense. Anyway Lets continue. やった。
Im finally back to working on japanese phrases and kanji. This is going to be short. However I h av e been working on a game for the 2014 indie game maker contest. So it took a lot of my normal japanese time. However during work I was listening to a ton of tv and movies. Which helps out a lot. Small steps help. Now im back started my SRS reps with standard phrases and words. Tomorrow going to add more. Ill write again tomorrow. あしたまた。
Today was creating a lot of 3D models day, so my Kanji studies have dropped a bit since crunchtime is around the corner. However; i am getting better using SRS anki reps when not doing any Kanji at home. So thats agood for reinforcement as far as that concerned. I talked to a coworker today as well, and she is also learning Japanese! Score!! We are trying to see if we can schedule a date so we can talk and understand stuff that we learn. Thats the best news of the day! 私は疲れている。 so im gonna hit the sack. talk to you tomorrow.
