Recently, I have been very busy so updating this blog became extremely hard to update. So every 3 or so days I will update it because it will be more manageable. I am sorry about the inconvenience for any of you that follow this blog everyday but it makes it alot easier to do this. I hope you understand.
So technically is day 6 though I did miss day 5 yesterday, sorry about that. I did the same old though reviewing the characters on Anki from the beginning is a lot easier since they exposed me to them in a good fashion so I do remember them. Everything so far is going well, I think I can do this.
I am a day late, but no matter I will just have to post twice today. I learned how to pronounce and write the “t” characters and documented this on languageontrack.com I also used japanesepod101.com with Anki to review and study the new and old characters.
I also noticed that there is a phenomenon in the characters where they do not follow the normal pattern but instead are pronounced differently, for example, “shi” instead of “si”, or “tsu” instead of “tu”.
I used Anki to help myself learn the “s” characters of the Hiragana script. I also set down my daily goal for languageontrack.com I studied on japanesepod101.com the on how to write these characters as well. One thing that I learned about Anki that I didn’t learn before is that even if you mastered characters. It still exposes you to them later, for me its 4 days for review. Other than that it has been a pretty basic day for my studying. I am expecting this for the days to come, at least until I find another resource or start learning Katakana or something.
So during the range of time of yesterday and today. I used the langaugeontrack.com website and it has proven most helpful. I used it with Anki and used japanesepod101.com to learn the stroke orders of the hiragana, to practice pronunciation, and learned the vowels and the “k” characters. I feel like if I can keep this path straight and steady, I will definitely be able to master hiragana and move on to katakana. Short day today, and this may be repetitive throughout the full journey of this challenge, but it is what it is.
