So I guess my reading ability has improved because I just read a "letter" in Orange in a single sitting, and that's not the first time I've done that.
But man, so many words I didn't know! Here are some fun ones
口止め (a "hard" word with super-easy kanji)
嘘 (never knew there was a kanji for this!)
罪悪感 (again - super hard word with pretty easy kanji)
A new word I hate:
辛い - I know this as "karai" but it can also be read as "tsurai". karai means spicy (i've know that word forever). But tsurai means "emotionally painful". I hate that the exact same characters can be read differently and mean a different thing altogether!
How's everyone else's reading going?
Yay that's awesome!!
I...have not had much time to read/Japanese and have mostly been hanging onto my maintenance with the tips of my fingers. But! I leave school in less than two months, and will have SO MUCH MORE free time. Yay being self-employed, I guess? I'm moving in a month and it will be painful to see all my beautiful manga move with me that I haven't had a chance to read...
Nice to hear from you Nohika!
Word of the day: 夏時間
I love the easy ones!
Just finished watching this week's episode shirokuma (#41). Only 8 more to go in the entire series!
While I always try to limit my vocab, it hasn't really been possible lately. Last week I did a brief speech at my Japanese toastmasters, and also had a conversation with the organizer of the conference I'm talking at in Japan in December. So I added in a bunch of vocab due to those activities, in addition to the normal anime and manga I've been reading/watching, and in addition to a recent lesson with a teacher.
So instead of 2 cards a day, I've recently been adding in 5-10 cards a day, and now I'm back up to 120+ reviews a day :/
Hopefully this is just a short phase, and I can get back to a lower number of reviews soon!
Hey there guys! How's going with your study log? I didn't post for a long time.
I'm still studying Japanese but I'm questioning my method. It takes too much time to make and review the cards in Anki.
I get like over 400 cards per day, and this is very taxing, to the point that I'm getting annoyed at it.
I decided to put RTK on hold for a bit due to this issue, but it's been 2 weeks now and while I keep reviewing the learnt ones, I'm not adding new Heisig Kanjis. Thing is, while I definitely understand the big advantage of finishing that book, it frustrates me that I'm not also learning at least the most common onyomi together. I understand why I'm not doing that, and that's supposed to give me a quick knowledge of how to write and recognize those Kanjis rather than their meaning.
The grammar is progressing, although production sucks. I mostly do drills and listening.
Vocabulary increases daily.
I'm starting to think I might want to use the 10k Sentence method, just to be able to use materials that was already made by someone else and ease everything.
In this regards, if I were to download some common ANKI decks, what would be the best advices from you guys? I really don't have experience with it.
Thanks a bunch.
