Monthly Plan : April 2020

The fate of JLPT July 2020 is treading uncertain grounds as of now. There are talks all around of the cancellation depending on the Corona Virus situation. I got to know that the decision of the test execution might come as late as June 10 in my region .

I spent a few days laxed under the impression that the test is sure to be cancelled, then got to know it might still happen. :0

Test or not, continuing with the studies at same pace is anyway a good idea

  • Shinkanzen Master N 1 dokkai /新完全マスターN1 読解– two passages per day. I am motivated to finish this book this month. So far I have been hitting targets each day. 🙂
    • Example passages / 例題:1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28
    • Practice / 練習:1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,40,41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59,60,61,62,63,64,65,66,67,68
  • Grammar / 文法:The current grammar book that I am doing, like most other grammar books, has chapters containing similar patterns clubbed together.
    • Week 1 – patterns 32-45
    • Week 2 – patterns 46-64
    • Week3 – patterns 65-88
    • Week4 – patterns 89-107
  • Try 文法から伸ばすN1(Bunpou kara nobasu) book? I did go through this book but found it confusing. May be because I haven’t completed many N1 patterns yet. But I think I should give this book a serious try this month.
  • Anki flash card decks – I slacked on my cards in March 😦 いけないね!I resolve to do them very religiously this month including adding all the new words from the dokkai passages into the deck.
  • Reading one article per day – This has been going so-so and will remain a constant item in the plan for each month.
  • Listening to podcast or news – Watching Fullmetal Alchemist ( Hagane no Renkinjutsushi) anime in Japanese. I started this a few days ago and I plan to complete it this month. I am 6 episodes old here. I have watched this anime as a kid in Eng dub :\ but I don’t remember much apart from the characters and their quirks. This has been as interesting as I found it in my school days. Podcasts and Japanese youtube videos are regular supporting characters in my life. Not something that I engage in everyday deliberately but I do watch/listen to them on and off on most days. It features in my leisure activities; just an entertaining habit. 🙂

Happy quarantining and studying this month!!!
