February Roundup!

Another month passed into the 2012 year of Japanese fun!

This month we’ve had some good posts like:

Religion in Japan : My Japanese Coach: DS Review : Kanjirific Game: Feb Kakitori-kun Review : Android Immersion : Apple Itouch Immersion : Sandwich Cutter from Japan: Clover

We weren’t able to get in a post about shadowing this month as we planned, so it is going to show up in March. Here are a following list of posts that will be coming up in March. If you have any requests, comment below:

Learning With Text: Posts on introduction, review, guides, and tips and tricks.

How I study: Mikoto’s tools

Kimono mail ordered review of website, kimono, and accessories

Shadowing Examples! Prepare to laugh!

To sum up how my goals have been going so far, I have to admit that I’m not getting through as much review of the kanji as I was hoping to. I had to even drop a school class I was taking due to the crazy amounts of work involved in the other classes. On the plus side, I’ve been doing a lot of smaller immersions through my day, including playing more Japanese games and listening to more podcasts.

On a personal level I have been struggling emotionally. I’m going to try and make sure this doesn’t effect my getting posts out. This past Friday was a slip up because a friend I haven’t seen in a long time came to visit from Omaha. Getting to see her again was a fun boost and I’ll sadly be seeing her off on Thursday.

I have been teetering on the decision to actually start back up again with teaching Japanese to my daughter. I stumbled on a few sites of interest, and if I pursue this, expect more blogs about it! As I have been getting further in my studies, I have felt a little more confident teaching her. I’m still not sure that I can’t help her become fluent, due to the lack of Japanese environment, but as I said before, I’m going to research a lot more into it.

Having a guest author was a lot of fun, and I hope you have enjoyed both his work and our new co-author’s posts from Pandachan.

I hope everyone has been having a good month and lets look forward to kicking some more butt in March! Oh yeah fun pic time:

Japan never ceases to amaze me in the cuteness department!

      It feels silly at first, but it has really helped me get over fear of talking, work on speed, and when I record listen and redo, it helps me perfect my accent more. But alas, I still feel bad at it. hehe
