I have made a timetable for learning Japanese. But, I am way behind schedule. I prefer to study at my own pace because I am not taking a test at the end of the journey. I wish to be flexible with my time so that I can take care of my tutoring and blogging at the same time. I want to learn Japanese leisurely by watching TV programmes and speaking simple phrases with my spouse (though his only reply is “What were you saying?”)…
Leisure or serious? Of course I am serious with learning Japanese. No matter what reasons I give myself, I cannot slack anymore! Thus, I am going to put the new timetable here so that I can always remind myself of my progress.
From the timetable, you can see that there is a break between 25 January and 10 February (Chinese New Year). Yes, everybody needs a break. When you are making a timetable for yourself, all special dates should be taken into consideration, such as holidays, and exam dates.
After each week, I will share what I have learnt. Though there is no exam, I need to write a post, so that will make me stick to the timetable.
1. Make a timetable for learning and stick to it.
2. Exam is a good way to “motivate” a person to study. For self-study, set a time to test your knowledge on the subject on regular basis. This will serve as an “exam” so that you will not slowly slack off.
3. A new Japanese word: Time — 時間
