Earlier in the year, I wrote a post about giving away books. This is a quick update for those who are interested. Long story short, I will not give out books individually because it’s complicated and there are easier ways to make sure my books get proper treatment.
UPDATE(11/26/16): I’ve decided to do something different with all the books, check out the details on my update post.
*people who have already called dibs will get their books.
Okay, not all of them. I’m keeping about twenty or so because I know I’ll re-read them at some point. The rest will be up for grabs at the end of this year.
Wow, it’s been two years since I started learning Japanese.
I think it’s time for a reflection post.
Just a short update.
First, I’ve always had lots of respect for Tae Kim, creator of the Japanese Grammar guide, an incredible, free resource. I decided to finally check out his blog. I eventually landed on this post about how he posts words he learns on twitter. So I decided I would give it a shot.
For one thing, it’s just another way to get exposure to Japanese (looking for example sentences online).
It could also be useful for other learners of Japanese.
So I started doing it about a week ago now, and I’m finding it really fun. So fun, in fact, that I’ve decided to do the same thing with Korean and Mandarin. If you’re interested in seeing daily Japanese, Korean, or Mandarin words complete with examples of use, feel free to follow me.
Edit: Long story short, after a while of doing Words Of the Day for Mandarin and Korean, I have decided that I would benefit more from studying at this point. The Korean and Mandarin words of the day will return, someday.
If you decide to start doing it yourself, leave a comment with your twitter name so I can follow you too!
Up next, a post two years in the making…
I want to be a translator.
I need experience.
I’ve decided to take some initiative and try doing fun little projects to see what it feels like to translate text. All my projects will be Japanese-English translations.
We have entered a new year, which means
ridiculously grand resolution, I mean attainable daily goals time.
Here’s my list.
