I can’t believe it but here I am again. I’m learning Japanese. I’ve tried several times in the past, and several other languages too and never really got anywhere, but I’ve got a good feeling about this time around. This year is going well, so why shouldn’t this be the year I finally get to grips with the language?!
I’m gonna keep a bit of a log of my studies, as much for my own interest as anybody else’s. Helps to keep me focussed and see how far I’ve come.
I started again yesterday – I’ve signed back up to several of the websites I used to use, WaniKani, Skritter* and Duolingo mainly.
*This is a referral link – sign up to Skritter (the best app I know for learning to write Japanese and Chinese) and we BOTH get 2 weeks free!!
I’m thrilled to see I can still read hiragana and katakana, and write most of it. I also have a bunch of vocab in the back of my head that keeps filtering to the surface, which is obviously fantastically awesome!
I’m going to be working through TextFugu, an online textbook I used to try and use, and probably some others – every time I go into languages I read EVERYTHING so I’ll probably wind up reviewing resources too.
So yeah, super excited.
