22 , 23 , 24 …. 26 steps – AJATT SS
It’s been quite a while since my last post on AJATT SS. Before I begin, I’d just like to clarify some things. AJATT SS is also for those people who have “no clue” what so ever about the language. I think it’s even better if you start this AJATT SS without any prior knowledge about Japanese. Yes, such things as Kanji may be daunting but after a while, you and the Kanji will be walking together, hand in hand, best of friends!
If you have dwelved into the wonderful world of Japanese already and got the general gist of Hiragana, Katakana, vocabulary and what not, it will still benefit you too. It’s just that I’d probably find AJATT SS much more “wow” if I had no ground knowledge of Japanese, starting from step 1. This is solely just my opinion, others may think otherwise. But you know, it wouldn’t hurt if you start from the very start, if it’s Japanese and fun, why not? (which I can say SilverSpoon is)
SilverSpoon doesn’t restrict you from doing any other Japanese activities, as long as you’re doing something or anything in Japanese, it helps. If you find the daily activities not to your liking and “too easy”, play some games, watch some anime, watch some dramas if that is more to your liking, listen to podcasts and the list goes on! The important factor in this is, “do” the things that you would normally do if you were “fluent” in Japanese. Why wait until you reach fluency to do the things you have always wanted to do? That doesn’t sound like fun. Do it now, it won’t hurt. The important factor is to have fun.
Just so you guys know, I’ve done RTK and over 20k+ reps of Kanji and still find that some of those pesky Kanji’s don’t like me!
Anyways, I better get on with it and talk about what’s been happening with AJATT SS from days 22- 26. I’m currently on day 27.
Nothing has really changed in terms of activities, so this post will be a little “bland” you have been warned^^”
- Shadowing – Shadowing in longer intervals
- Kanji – Add Kanji / write Kanji , do reps
- Videos – Watch a selected type of video but of course you can change it to your liking
- Browsing Japanese sites randomly
Some things that might startle future SilverSpooners or those who are interested in the content of AJATT SS
What has been getting some people confused a d myself as well is, do we have to watch these videos that Khatz has specified? Khatz has kindly answered this question to the SilverSpooners recently. What I took from it is, you don’t have to watch it, as long as you watch or do anything in Japanese that interests you, it’s all good. As I can tell, it’s hard to “satisfy” the interests of everyone with these videos he tells you to watch. I for one am not fond of some^^” I guess this in place for people who have no idea of what to search for when trying to find Japanese content and you know? fair enough.
Other than that, the activities are still the same as what I had mentioned before in my previous post besides starting to browse Japanese sites. I forgot to mention something important. We have not started on Hiragana and Katakana as of yet but I have no problems with both, expect sometimes with ツ(tsu)、シ(shi), ソ (s0), ノ(no) ^^” Mostly if you take classes in Japanese, especially the beginner levels, you will learn Hiragana first, followed by Katakana with some Kanji in between when learning Katakan. This is the norm, Hiragana -> Katakana > Kanji. But with AJATT SS as you can see from what I’ve posted,we start off with Kanji.
That ends it for todays post about AJATT SS. Sorry that there wasn’t much to say as there has been nothing new to talk about as of late.
