[JAPANESE | RAMBLES] Making a Crumb into Bread – Part 3 – The End of Exploration (For Now) and…a plan?

Wow. Just, wow. I had this really dinky list of books I had at hand, since the rest were packed and a handful of cool websites from Nihongo-e-na! during part 2. Now I have this monstrous list (compared to before) full of MANY more books and SOOOO many more websites! I don’t even like sharing …

[JAPANESE | RAMBLES] Making a Crumb into Bread – Part 2 – The Beginning of Exploration

I said I wanted to make a sequel to the last Japanese-learning post and that I am doing! I am expecting to have a third one as well. You guys will know in time — I’m sure of it. If you haven’t read the last post, that’s fine. Let me just summarize what is going …

[JAPANESE | RAMBLES] Making a Crumb into Bread

Did you know that shortly after writing my 2015 goal post, I got sick? I mean like, within a few minutes/hours of posting it, I got sick. I caught my boyfriend’s cold. Some people think it’s because of my lack of jacket outside, but no — I’m 100% certain I caught it from my boyfriend. …

There are so many things that serve as a reminder that it’s still something I am …

[JAPANESE | RAMBLES] Learning Realization

Sometimes when people ask me where to start learning Japanese, I immediately say “learn kana”. I actually honestly swear by this advice because, to me, it has been the most helpful for numerous reasons, including my visit to Japan back in 2010. However, I notice I forgot something…

Japanese Relit

The last time I sat down and studied any Japanese was back at the end of November for the JLPT. Prior to then, it was way back in July, I believe, that I did anything related to studying Japanese. Needless to say, I’m very rusty right now and for a while, I haven’t had the …

A Reminder of Progress

Just this morning, one of my friends tagged me in a fan art they found somewhere on the Internet on Facebook. It was a 4 panel comic featuring Ash Ketchum and N, both from the Pokémon franchise. The comic itself was in Japanese. While I initially glanced over the comic and came into conclusion I …

Oh, geez. I don’t even know where I should begin. The Japanese? The Classes? The Village? I just don’t know!

Its been over two months, I believe, since I last wrote on here! It was only going to be a month originally, I believe, but I got so busy, I completely lost motivation to write my blog! I feel really bad because I told this really pretty blonde lady at a shop I visited about …

Doors

I like to refer to the order of learning Japanese (or learning anything, really) as “doors”. Generally, doors lead to rooms, sometimes to a room with more doors to open. While some doors don’t have locks on them, others do. For language learning, you generally first stand in a room with a few doors with …
