My goals involve reading and vocabulary. I want to have a much broader vocabulary and understand more kanji. I only remember bits and pieces from my class back in Long Beach,CA. I remember the most difficult part of reading kanji is knowing when to use the kun or on pronunciation. I would also like to find some childrens books so that I can practice reading more naturally. I'm looking forward to going beyond what I did back at home, and I feel more confident now that I have so many people around me to practice Nihongo with.
