Yesterday was a bit of a struggle doing my normal Japanese listening. I picked up a few cool new words, but doubt is getting to me. I feel better I think today but I start wondering if my current studying routine is even helping me get better at Japanese. Getting discouraged is really easy somedays. I had some good days last week where things were exciting but then like today it feels blah. I’m probably going to have lots of these sadly. This is the tough reality of language learning. Anyway, the words I learned were「そうでした」and「大好き」. The first word I learned from listening to a discussion on YouTube and it means “Oh, I remember now” and the second is from the Nihongo con Teppei podcast and it means to really like something. Ok that’s it for now.
