Today, both strips fit into one study session.
So far, I’m liking using sentences without comic panel images in Anki, but I only have a couple of sentences, so it’s too soon to tell. The front of the card has the sentence with the kanji to recognize in 【brackets】. The back of the card is the same as the front, except the word in brackets has furigana, and the translation of the single word is included.
Doing Anki reviews in a different environment (work commute versus at-home desktop computer) highlights for me just how much I’m recognizing words on sight of a comic panel image rather than reviewing the kanji.
Lately, I’ve been out of town weekends, and that makes it more difficult to get any studying done, as all the files I use for it are on my desktop computer. I did use this out-of-town time to read through all of GochiUsa volume 1 (as best I could), and I will likely re-read it from the beginning, but it’d be nice to do something a bit more productive during this time.
つける (to attach) is one of those words I should probably already know (I think I’ve encountered it in iKnow), but I’m not familiar with it yet. Maybe I’ll start to remember it now, as Cocoa-san asks, 「ウサ
I feel like I may never get through all the Anki reviews. But that doesn’t mean I can’t move on to the next strip and add more flash cards.
A computer issue left me unable to access my Japanese study files for a few weeks. I used this “free” time to do other things, but also read through most of GochiUsa (as best I could not knowing much of the kanji, vocabulary, and grammar).
Are some pages easy because I know the words and am getting used to certain uses of grammar? Or is it because I remember the scene from back when I watched the anime? I look forward to encountering less unknown vocabulary, and more unknown bits of grammar.
Although vocabulary and kanji reviews are a bit discouraging, working through the dialogue of new strips has been relatively easy. Hopefully the dialogue isn’t keeping real simple to give me a false sense of progress just before dumping massive amounts of complex dialogue on me. (Maybe I should give the introductory strips a read later to see if there’s any visible progress?)
I had a lot less time to review today, so thankfully it was another easy strip.
