15 In Japanese learning journey (:

Countdown to Japanese oral

I have a Japanese oral exam in less than 5 hours and I’m trying to create a very last minute Japanese immersion environment. Basically I’m preventing myself from looking/reading/listening to any Korean and focusing on Japanese. Sorry, I tend to get really confused especially when I was listening to a Korean podcast prior to Japanese classes.

I have been watching DBSK Japanese interviews this morning and they are so ♥ . I wish I can speak like them. 😀 We can prepare ahead (kinda) for our oral exam since we know what are the general topics to be tested and at our level… what can we really say? 😛 I hope to make my oral exam a little more interesting. heehee. I hope I remember what I wanted to say. lol.

Might post again after oral exam today. And it’s 3 days to TOPIK. D: I have a bunch of exams / tests coming up and it’s difficult to prioritize things. TOPIK first or school first?

I don’t know.

Good luck for all those taking TOPIK on sunday! How’s preparations?

頑張ってね!

p.s. This song is on repeat now

        i’m so curious how your japanese intonation is since your korean sounds so good. the kpop people that go on japanese tv (especially the ones that recently debuted there) talk with korean accent but it’s really the korean intonation that relaly makes their japnaese sound so irritating (they speak japanese with korean intonation instead of japanese intonation since they’re not used to japnaese). BUT since you speak english, chinese maybe you’ll pick up the japanese intonation faster.

        good luck!

      mmm I don’t really know. I’ve taken Japanese for 3 levels in school… which might translate to 1.5 years… but that’s not really accurate seeing how the pace in lessons is really slow. i’ve been self studying for about 4 months? And I don’t really know what level i am >< Maybe in between beginner and intermediate? xD

        Really? Because when I looked at the article you read, I thought you must be quite advanced or at least intermediate ^^
