One more week…

One more week and then the main bulk of this course is finished.

I can’t wait, but there is so much to do before then.
This week I have 2 assignments (2500 and 1500 words respectfully), 3 presentations in Japanese, 2 exams, and a series of smaller tests to get through.

In 2 weeks I will move out of the university dormitory and start my 7 week stay in my own private place nearer the centre.
Also in 2 weeks I am officially leaving my job. I had intended to work until September but some things have occurred and I need to leave. I will miss my students but the job was (is) affecting my health and causing me unnecessary stress.

I hope you’re all well

If you remember (or check my blog) a few of weeks back I mentioned that I would be updating more regularly about my study and progress in Japanese.

Well clearly, now that it’s been about a month with no update I have failed to achieve this. This is not (really) laziness, but more because I have been so horribly and unbelievably busy.

Sunday 23/03/2014

Decided that I might try to keep a better log of what I’ve been doing/ my study progress.

So, today:

  • 1 hour+ Kanji revision
  • Come very close to having finished the とびら Kanji textbook
  • Reviewed some N2 vocabulary
  • Start learning Kanji from the Intermediate Textbook 1 (I know quite a lot of these Kanji already, but it also works as revision and vocabulary learning)

Pretty much just a quiet Sunday :)

My progress from the last week :)

Will start posting this once a week I think. Studying from the とびら kanji textbook and an N2 specific vocabulary textbook.

Very late upload of Pancake day photos!

Unfortunately you need to have a subscription to the website…

I think there is a one week free trial though, maybe you could test it out. :)

Yep ^^

It’s called Skritter, I recommend it. :)
