2016 JLPT Study Plan

I didn’t expect to be writing another entry in the same day but with the entries I do have, my blog seems like a jumble mess of thoughts. So I’m writing this entry to give some clarity as to exactly how I study Japanese with the intention of taking the JLPT N3 level exam in December. I plan to edit this post periodically.

First Post: 多読!

I thought I’d start this blog launch with a BANG! & why not match it up with 多読 (tadoku) Round 2.5 ? 

Basically, if you don’t know what the tadoku contest is, here is a quote from the site:

The ReadMOD contest was established to promote this least-method-like of methods.  It is extremely simple: read every day for a month, and report your pagecount; the person with the highest pagecount at the end wins eternal* fame and glory, the adulation** of the other contestants, and notably improved language skill.

Read More or Die

My reading goal is a modest 150 pages. This is my 2nd half round I’ve participated in. A half round is 2 week; full round is a month. I hope to finally meet my reading goals. I have yet to meet them but this time around I am determined! I feel like this mini round, I have the time and the resources….

…& that I would like to discuss in another blog entry. 😉 Don’t wanna dish out all the goodies in 1 post. ^^
