I just finished Minna no Nihongo II.
Now, there are couple of textbooks I have to go through.
As the core textbook, I will be using the first book of Minna no Nihongo III and see if it is useful or not.
I will continue to memorize the vocabulary via Anki software.
As for reading, I will try to go through both textbooks they use at Japanese Studies during their second year (out of three) here in Prague, which is 中級から学ぶ and 文化中級日本語 I.
Grammar part will be covered by 中級日本語文法要点整理ポイント20, reviewing Kanzen Bunpou Master L3 and maybe starting with Kanzen Bunpou Master L2 (but grammar here might by covered by MNN3, so we will see).
As for the writing part, I will continue writing essays on topics covered in MNN2 and then search for another topics I go through in textbooks mentioned above.
This step might take a lot of time, maybe even until the entrance exams. I hope to do more than this, but, well.. I should at least go through the both MNN3 books and Kanzen 2, if I want to score well during the exam.
But the main point is to learn Japanese, so let´s just continue steadily and don´t get bothered by useless pessimistic ideas.
頑張れ！ 6 days ago
im going to remember 5 kanji word for this 2 days ._. 2 weeks ago
It was very busy last week so a lot of things were lag behind.
RTK :Lesson 8
MTJ: CD 5 track 5 4 weeks ago
I found out that although my passive knowledge of vocabulary is proceeding quite fast, my active knowledge is lagging behind. I might have a big problem later when I focus on speaking skills because of this, so I started to memorize the vocabulary in a reverse mode in Anki (means English first, Japanese translation follows). In addition to main textbook vocabulary, I am also memorizing words from another Anki deck.
Besides, I started doing Japanese-Czech Language exchange. I write about three essays in Japanese every week – very short (500 characters each), basic topics (family, travelling, hobbies, etc.), and let Miki correct it so as I could improve my grammar and writing skills.
In the first half of June, I will be sitting an entrance exam, writing an essay in Japanese (1200 characters long) on very specific topics concerning Japanese literature, history or current issues. So my goal is to improve it to the level that I could pass the exam.
I am currently almost in the half of the second MNN book. 1 month ago
RTK: Lesson 3
MT Japanese : CD5
Rosetta Stone: Unit 1 Lesson 2 (had started over)
Living language Japanese: Reviewing Book 1 Essentials
Also trying to do some shadowing with Japanese music , I don’t know what’s its suppose to do but it seem more fun than repeating sentences. 1 month ago
So as to proceed towards my other goal – Study Japanese studies, I started seriously learning Japanese in the second half of November 2013. So far my plan is to go through the first two books of Minna no Nihongo, and maybe the third book (I have to check the content first), and then continue to study grammar and vocabulary (because the exam is an essay written in Japanese). During my summer holiday, I will practice speaking and listening, the abilities which will be lagging behind because of current focus on writing and reading.
I finished Minna no Nihongo I, and I am currently in one third of Minna no Nihongo II. My plan is to have the second book finished by the end of the February and then proceed with Minna no Nihongo III, Kanzen Master grammar exercises level 3,2,1 and maybe Nihongo sou Matomame levels 3,2,1.
This goal should be completed until the first half of June at the latest. 1 month ago
