Carlie’s Japanese Progress – August 2007

carlie002OK, so August was a pretty pooey month all around. I was working so much at university plus I had just gotten a new job – it was all too much for me and I found I spent more time stressing than doing what I should have been doing! I decided to drop a subject at university which lifted that huge weight off my shoulders, and then spent the rest of the month trying to get back ahead of things. I think I’m there now, so expect September to be a more productive month both here and off line. :) (However, I’m in the process of upgrading my computer, I’m not sure how long I’ll be out of action here for that – I will have to install all my programs again, but the great news is I’ll be faster and I’ll have 800mb more of space! Woo hoo! This is comming up from not even 300mb space, so I wont know what to do with it all!)

Japanese for Everyone

At the begining of August I was half way through chapter 7. Now I have completed chapter 8 & 9 and I’m about to start chapter 10. I thought it would be harder than it was, but I think thanks to Anki and hearing a lot of what I was learning in dramas, a lot of it has sunk in.

Last month I had 233 cards. Now I have 359 cards (and I’m going to add some more today!) So I’ve added 126 cards, which is on average four cards a day. I think I’d like to try and bring that average up to around 6 cards a day. On average I’ve been getting them correct 84% of the time which isn’t bad.

As you can see, there really isn’t much to report for last month, but I will be using September to get back into the swing of things!
