My Japanese Progress: Good

Oops! Another late post to my progress on the subject. The progress speed is normal now because I can be very demanding even when it comes to myself. I realized that speed learning won’t be helpful in the long run but slow to average speed will give my subconscious a little bit more time to absorb those learnt materials.

I mentioned that I was halfway into Chapter 8 last week and this week I’ve finish until Chapter 9. Am ready to jump into doing revision again in those chapters to further strengthening its foundation.


Things that I learnt

  • Taking about experiences with ARU
  • Verbs in the plain past form
  • Describing people and things
  • Describing skills
  • Nominalizers NO and KOTO
  • Suffix TAI
  • Absolute time expression
  • More on particle YA, DE and NI
  • Question word ITSU
  • The Te-Form in verbs and adjectives
  • Direction
  • Using Sousuruto
  • Te-Form of IRU
  • Expressing an extreme habit with BAKARI

The above will be some of the things I have learnt in those chapters.


On a totally off topic note. Legend of Korra is super awesome! I feels like I have become a child again like when I first stumbled upon Avatar: The Last Airbender. It was the first show on Nick that have fascinated me for a long time in the world that people have the ability to bend elements. Anyway, episode 4 just aired a day ago. I would recommend a watch if you are not already a fan of the series.

    I dont have much faith in those text-book studying methods, but as long as you are satisfied that is good. When you are ready to move on, visit “All Japanese All The Time”

    I’m curious. Are you studying the language too? I have heard of “All Japanese All The Time” but not yet really dig into his contents yet on the subject.

    Let me get through this to build a very basic understanding first.

    もちろんです。AJATT is just one instance of a better attitude towards language learning, which to say in few words is “immersion and spaced repetitions (SRS)”. I’m doing it for more than a year and I’m very happy with my progress

    Sorry for the late reply. Sounds like a plan to me. I will be implementing it to my daily schedule then. Thanks!
