Hello everyone, it’s really great to be back after quite a summer! As you may remember, I took a hiatus from making new posts over this hot and humid time of year. But I certainly took a lot of notes during that time! Here’s a sneak peek at some of the topics I want to cover over the next few months!

Summertime – Letting go of hardcore study, while still living in Japanese and enjoying the season.

My reading adventures – Why I think extensive reading is incredibly important, what I’ve been reading, and how it still ties in to intensive reading.

Using time wiselyMore thoughts on getting focused, staying on track, and keeping your time in Japanese.

Getting outside of your comfort zone – Some of the plunges that I’ve taken, and thoughts on progress.

When other languages are in your mixHow Japanese is actually an L3 for me, and expanding linguistic horizons.

SRS: Pre-made decks vs. your own – Good examples of both, and how to use them!

SRS: Powering up AnkiHow a bit of basic scripting can make your reps go Super Saiyan.

Positive attitude & when life happens – Some very personal examples of the trials and tribulations of my language learning.
