Achieving Your Japanese Goals – October 2019 — 9 Comments

  1. My goal is to add 200 cards from Intermediate and finish the deck (800-1000), to do my reviews every day, and to keep working on RTK.

    I also want to listen to Japanese podcasts or audiobooks a few times per week.

    Same goals as last month. Hard but doable.

    • All done with Intermediate! Now I’ll take a couple of weeks to work on reviews before starting Advanced.

  2. Goal: JA 400
    -continue JA at 10 cards per day
    -read daily
    -shadow daily on commute

    1 week this month I’ll be on vacation so probably will not study much then…not sure if itll be zero studying or not but going to be easy on myself…been hitting it pretty steadily lately..maybe reading only that week?

  3. – Add 160 new cards on Jalup Apprentice (goal: 670/1000).
    – Add 280 new kanji on Lazy Kanji deck in Anki (goal: 890/1000).
    – Add 280 new cards on Core 2000 deck in Anki (goal: 480/2007).
    – Passive immersion: continue listening as much as I can, no defined goal.
    – Active immersion: watching a ゼロの使い魔 episode a day (goal: end of season 2).

    • – Done. (670/1000)
      – Done. (923/1000)
      – Done. (490/2007)
      – I did a lot less of what I could’ve do.
      – I watched only 10 episodes.

      I’m happy that I managed to keep on with my reps and new cards on Anki/Jalup App, but I need to focus more on my listening routine.

  4. Keeping it simple this month:

    * Do all reviews
    * Keep doing lots of immersion
    * Clean up marked cards in Anki (cards that need improvement or more vocab cards).

  5. Okay October in order of priority:

    *Do all reviews
    *Start Jalup Master at 12 cards a day (This should get me to card 372)
    *As I finish cards read the Immersion material
    1. よつばと! (Cards 1-74)
    2. 日常 (Cards 75-110)
    3. ドラゴンボール (Cards 111-179)
    4. しろくまカフェ (180-199)
    5. うさぎドロップ (200-250)
    6. 坂本ですが (251-278)
    7. Charlotte (279-342)

    *Finish Terrace House Aloha State Part 4 (Listening only, then with jsubs, then immerse in car)
    *Watch and finish Carole & Tuesday (Stretch goal)

    This is looking a little daunting as I enter it so we will see how it goes :) If I don’t get the last stretch goal done thats okay…

    • I am happy to say the month went really well! I did it, hit every goal even the stretch goal. It was very much a transitional month as I can’t use the jalup app anymore and I started Master on anki. I was nervous about that but it’s been fine. The silver lining is the lack of audio is forcing me to sound things out better, and speak up when practicing the lines. I am also enjoying finishing a set and then reading the manga and seeing it in a different context. Details are as follows:

      *Do all reviews
      DONE

      *Start Jalup Master at 12 cards a day (This should get me to card 372)
      DONE

      *As I finish cards read the Immersion material
      1. よつばと! (Cards 1-74)
      2. 日常 (Cards 75-110)
      3. ドラゴンボール (Cards 111-179)
      4. しろくまカフェ (180-199)
      5. うさぎドロップ (200-250)
      6. 坂本ですが (251-278)
      7. Charlotte (279-342)
      DONE – read them all. At some point I’ll go back and read all of Dragonball. Charlotte is a maybe but the protagonist(?) seems like an ass and I didn’t like him. The rest didn’t interest me.

      *Finish Terrace House Aloha State Part 4 (Listening only, then with jsubs, then immerse in car)
      DONE – this was even harder than I thought because there are 12 eps not 8 in part four as I expected but I worked it in and got it done without cramming.

      *Watch and finish Carole & Tuesday (Stretch goal)
      DONE – this was easy because the show is fun and short

      Next month will be similar although I need more terrace House and to pick out a new anime. I think I’ll probably go back and try the original terrace House on Japanese Netflix. Anime tbd…

  6. 1. 200 new cards (currently on expert stage 4 card 875)
    2. Watch 10 dramas
    3. Read グッドモーニング・コール volume 5 and 6
