So, what did I do today?
Nothing much actually.
Cleaned and typeset manga strips – no I didn’t learn Japanese that fast, someone else had translated them, never mind that the ones I did were in Chinese and not in Japanese – and went to the library.
Oh but I revised some Hiragana in my head today …. I didn’t get most of course but I am happy that I got five or so right – which is actually not that good but oh well.
I also will try to study a bit more just before going to bed.
Die folgende Tabelle listet auf der Grundlage der 50-Laute-Tafel alle Hiragana und ihre Transkription nach dem Hepburn-System auf.
Die Schreibung てぃ für ti (im Gegensatz zu ち chi) kommt bei der Schreibung von Fremdwörtern in Katakana (ティ) des Öfteren vor, bei Hiragana nur in Ausnahmefällen
And this too:
I started this blog on the advice of this article that says that it is possible to learn 3,000 Kanji in 3 months and I want to try it out.
Although I am aware that I should probably start with completely studying and memorizing and whatnot Hiragana and Katakana … I actually did learn Hiragana once but it has been over a year since then and while I recognize the signs – Hiragana – I actually can’t match them with what they mean …. the only one I can always remember is ん – which is “n” in Romanji/Western script.
Therefore I probably would be better off doing that instead of tackling Kanji but well …
Anyway, back to the article. It doesn’t jump into Memorize this or Memorize that immediately, no, it actually establish a few “ground rules” so to say and helpful tips, like making a language blog to track process and get motivation, I don’t think I will be able to do a few of those things as I have literally no money to spare … however, I heard it from everywhere – internet sites, the article, one of my friends actually studying Japanese and who had already lived in Japan for a while – I will need not only one but probably more preferably good textbook[s].
So … I don’t know. Perhaps today I am going to revise Hiragana, including perhaps posting the Hiragana chart from Wikipedia here later.
Also .. perhaps anyone reading this noticed from my numerous grammar mistakes that I am 100% sure are somewhere in this text I am not a native English speaker nor do I live in an English-speaking country but my major in uni is ‘English Studies’ so I am hoping they [the mistakes] are not too noticeable.
Ne, I didn’t manage to do anything.
Not go to school. Not learn a bit. Not start trying to learn Japanese.
Sometimes I feel like I am doomed to be a failure.
This may seem a little dramatic … I mean , the title of this post but for me it is.
I am going to use this blog for commenting on my ( hopefully successful) attempt of learning Japanese and especially Kanji.
Please wish me luck.
