2 In Japanese learning journey (:

my Japanese learning journey?!

hahaha!! I just realized the last time I post something in the Japanese learning journey category was on 30 July 2011!!!! O.o

Blogs are scary. They keep a record of everything. I feel so guilty right now :/ I basically threw Japanese aside for a good 6 months. I have been struggling with re-learning what I did and it took me 2 months and loads of angst. I kinda remembered most of what I learnt, minus the vocabulary. I’m terrible with Japanese vocabulary. But I did notice that the ones I remembered are the ones I heard before in clips, news, dramas.

I’m now struggling between two selves. I hateeee the boring lessons I’m having in school and the fact that I’m going to be forced to take an exam for it. And I’m loving my self-studying self. I can do whatever I like and remember whatever my brain feels like remembering. It doesn’t bother me if I don’t fully grasp what I’ve learnt or that I can’t remember quite a bit of things.

So annoyed with that struggle. I swore I would never take a Japanese class in school again, but practical reasons and the lack of other reasonable modules will always lead  to me taking Japanese lessons time and again. D:

I don’t know what level I am in now but my comprehension ability far exceeds any production ability. I doubt I can produce anything O.o

Anyway, just a blog post indicating that I’m back!

    I think comprehension always runs ahead of production!

    Good luck with your Japanese learning journey. I wouldn’t worry to much about have thrown Japanese away for six months it will just make this next go that much easier!

    Recently I did the Tadoku competition a Japanese competition with other people online and I read Harry – which I’ve read the start of 10s of times and abandoned for being too hard but each of those times made it easier and I eventually finished it 😀
