Letting Life Lead
Konnichiwa! Yoroshika onegai shimasu.
I haven’t made a whole lot of progress as far as my vocabulary. However, I am happy to report that I am hearing a lot more of the sounds that make up Japanese words so it doesn’t always sounds like a long string of nonsense.
This must be how a toddler must here the world. “Blah blah blah blah NO! Blah blah Hello! Hello! blah blah blah Mama blah you! Mama blah you! Blah blah blah. I see you!”
Little darlings, I totally get why you feel the need to throw a tantrum. It’s just a lot of information flying at you all the time that makes absolutely no sense.
I have just about mastered the Hiragana with stroke order. It’s time now to get to learning Katakana. I tried to learn them at the same time, but found it to be too much and I was only able to retain u and ko because they look so similar to the Hiragana. Instead, I find that using Hiragana Pro and Katakana Pro (99 cents each) one at a time for instant recognition and then moving to the Writing Order Hiragana/Katakana App (free with ads) worked the best for memorization and retention.
How many times did I mess up those Japanese words? Kuso.
I have no idea why I picked this blog name, but there's no turning back now
