3 weeks since my journey to become a monk~
I’ll be talking about Days 16-21, which will make it 3 weeks since the start of my journey to become a monk. It’s been fun and time has seemed to past, just like “that” (Please excuse the lame pun, which makes no sense at all.)
Anyways, lets get to the nitty gritty of what has been happening with AJATT SilverSpoon
Activities are still the same, for now:
- Listening/watching jp videos
- Do Kanji reps
- Add Kanji
- Write kanji
And most importantly, breaks!
What I have noticed recently over the past few days is that you don’t necessarily do the same activities, orders of activities are mixed up but not that much. For example, some days you might do Kanji, some days you may take a break from them. Just to elaborate on the Kanji activities, the Kanji activities also vary, one day you might write Kanji, another day you might just be doing your reps. Or maybe, all of them in the one day. But it’s nothing too “tiring”, well for me^^” Maybe it’s the fact that I did 100kanji a day when starting out with Heisig RTK. Or mainly the fact that we take relaxing breaks. But there are some activities which you do every day, sometimes more than other days, sometimes less. What I’ve been trying to say for the past paragraph ^^” is , each day is different, sometimes there might be a bit more activities than the other days, sometimes less and the order in which you do them in. (I think I just repeated myself here but yeh^^” )
Khatz also asks for feedback from current SilverSpooner’s about how they find each activity for the day. Which I find pretty awesome, since he can improve them and it will prove useful for “future SilverSpooners”
You’re probably wondering, has my Japanese improved significantly or even the slightest through these 3 weeks? For me, I feel nothing, other than the fact that I know my immersion environment is at its best (well not the best but better than before). Although I don’t feel these “slight changes”, I do believe I am progressing, let it be my listening skills and what not. With most people, I think when they start learning, studying, getting use to any language, they expect “results “, good ones too! and excpect them quick too (I know I was one of them). What they don’t realise is that “every little thing they do in Japanese” Whether it be listening to some funky j pop music, watching anime raw , watching dramas, playing jap games. It is “helping” your Japanese. I believe these things slowly build up and before you know it, ”Japanese” will gradually come to you.
Please forgive me! I was meant to update a few days ago but assignments, exams have bogged me down! If you have been following my twitter, I have been ranting quite a lot about this!
Anyways as usual, I hope enjoy todays instalment, I will do a post shortly on PillowSonic and some figures (which I was meaning to do a while ago)
