So, I have finished another cycle. It feels good to be progressing so quickly, but the pace of class is picking up quickly, so I need to study more! After spending countless hours of my break "studying" Japanese(watching Naruto Shippuden), I realized that I need to internalize all of the different forms of words(plain, dictionary,-te, and all of the negatives for these). This is going to be a busy few weeks, as I consider how I am going to keep up my language skills over break. For the next cycle, I will practice speaking more by going to office hours to get used to using the new things I'm learning. I will also do more of the shadowing exercises so I can speak more naturally.
