Learning Japanese! Entry #1
A year and a half ago I started trying learning Japanese.
I was amped up and ready to learn it all.
For a about 3 months I studied day in and day out. Learning the wrong way....
yes you have read right I was learning the wrong way.
I was trying to just learn as many words as possible and hope the grammar would just work its self out.
OK... yes I was dumb. lol Don't ask me what I was thinking. In truth I still have no idea to this day.
Long story short I did not learn anything but how to learn the wrong way. Which is a good lesson in it's self I suppose.
A few months after that I stumbled upon some videos of a man that moved to Japan and had a active channel on youtube. He has many videos from faq's to vlogs.
But it was a very specific video. Where he answered a viewers comment question.
Which was how did you learn Japanese.
In his video he stated that the biggest thing is to start with the basics. Learn from the ground up, other wise you will speak improper Japanese.
So from that point I looked for many books and other resources.
In the end I failed at finding anything that helped me. So I gave up for a few months tell I stumbled on that exact same video yet again. Exept this time there was a video in the recommended list titled "How to learn Japanese fast"
This video was nothing but a Joke and to prove a point that there is no fast way.
But in the description there was a link to a site that opened my how I see learning Japanese.
So i started using this site to learn Japanese and had gotten quite far to the point i could read a bit of Hiragana.
But due to a few personal stuff. I ran out of time to learn and to be 100% honest I was burning out fast.
Skip ahead to now.
I have sad news I have forgotten so very much.
So i have decided i will start from scratch.
I will be posting my progress via this blog.
I start my studies in a few hours after I get some sleep.
Next Blog post will be the game plan. :D
