4 In Japanese learning journey (:

My kind of Saturdays

hehe weekends <3

Planning to spend the entire day studying Japanese. Or rather, reading Japanese novels. As some of you might have read from previous posts, I like doing 2 readings for a single novel. Meaning that I’ll read without a dictionary first and highlight all the unfamiliar words / grammar constructions, then I’ll go back again to read through a second time and check up all the words. This is why I’ll take forever to finish a book.

Happily reading STRAWBERRY NIGHT now. At Pg 219 for the first reading and only 105 for the second reading. Usually I try not to have such a big gap between the two readings, but the story’s getting super interesting so I can’t help but read further ahead. And I’ve been pretty lazy with studying these days ><

This way of learning a language is kinda strange for me, being all academic and textbook-y for Korean hahaha. Too bad there aren’t any nice Japanese dramas these days, so my audio input has been minimal.

I really like studying languages. Keeps me happy.

Speaking of which, Heartless City is getting better and better. <3 This drama is like flying under the radar for most people!! WHY. It’s damn good. I’ll continue to rave about it in a separate post but please go watch it. Like now now now.

      mmm I’ll have to think about that. For some reason, I’m just reluctant to watch a period drama and I haven’t watch any Korean ones too (Moon embraces the sun doesn’t count). On the other hand, I have a lot of liking for the main female lead of JIN…

    That’s seems like a good way of studying! I read things on line but I think some of the spelling and grammar is incorrect . I also have trouble when people omit spacing to compress their messages. Oh well. Guess it’s all good. Enjoy your day reading 🙂

      it’s good to try both online / offline reading. In that way, you can be good at both the colloquial and formal way of writing ^^
