About a month ago I was contacted by a company looking for people to test its new app for learning Japanese vocabulary. I jumped at the chance to try a new tool and I agreed to write a fair, balanced review for the app in the hopes that others would become aware of a new tool in the Japanese learning arsenal. Then I got really sick and didn’t do anything for over a month. But now that I’m feeling better, I’ll go ahead and post this review.
Yesterday I went to Book-Off (again)!
I didn’t get a lot of book reading done last month. I blame Wikipedia and Japanese mythological creatures for being so interesting.
To celebrate my 100th post here, I’ve decided to share the 100 things I’ve enjoyed in/about the Japanese language. These are manga, songs, games, books, learning resources, websites, videos, and podcasts. Those of you who check the blog regularly will recognize a few of these. Here’s to hoping you get something new out of it!
During my Japanese classes we sometimes had to do transcription exercises. I tended to not enjoy them because, honestly, I sucked at transcription. I still do, but I consider it a really useful exercise for several reasons.
I ended up reading only a little for this month’s Tadoku contest, but I have a few
excuses good reasons as to why that happened. But first, here’s all the stuff I got through. Several books are included this time!
