4 In Japanese learning journey (:/ Korean learning journey (:/ N2 Journey

Writing is 2014’s keyword

In a simpler way, it means that I’m going to focus on improving my writing skills for my languages, particularly the 2 foreign languages.

2012 / 2013 was a year of “reading” and I could see a huge leap in my Korean reading skills in that year. The latter half of 2013 was dedicated to reading in Japanese and miraculously I am now able to read Japanese novels o.O

So this year is going to be a “writing” year. I definitely need more discipline since its easier to sit down and read instead of write.
This also means that I’m going to be experimenting with various methods/resources related to writing and hopefully I’ll have interesting things to share!

I have several great Japanese resources to share too. I have been sitting on them for too long >< Lastly there is another TOPIK book review coming out. (: On another note, I'm really afraid of language attrition and I really hope it is not going to happen. So I'm going to step up efforts and immerse myself more in various kinds of entertainment shows lolol Just the other day I watched a Japanese variety show raw! Then again the guests were BB so i had no problems following the show lolol. Mmm on a side note, I'm very amazed by Seungri. When bb first appeared in Japanese shows, it felt like TY was the best in the language. They all improved over the years (well the 3 of them) but SR's improvement is really the most obvious. It's really not easy to do variety and be funny in a foreign language.

    Have you taken a look at the new TOPIK questions that will be implemented in July? They’re really going through with the changes to the exam.
