All Japanese All the time.

Yesterday I went AJATT, i.e. All Japanese All the Time.

I ripped the audio o Tiger & Dragon and I'm listening it continuously, from waking up to going to sleep. I plan to do it for 3 months, and then measure the results.

My current stage is: I can sometimes catch complete sentences while listening japanese.

Anki status

Just for the sake of recods.

Kanji statistics

The 1896 seen cards in this deck contain:

  • 1259 total unique kanji.
  • Jouyou: 1185 of 1945 (60.9%).
  • Jinmeiyou: 21 of 287 (7.3%).
  • 53 non-jouyou kanji.

Jouyou levels:

  • Grade 1: 79 of 80 (98.8%).
  • Grade 2: 157 of 160 (98.1%).
  • Grade 3: 183 of 200 (91.5%).
  • Grade 4: 163 of 200 (81.5%).
  • Grade 5: 147 of 185 (79.5%).
  • Grade 6: 126 of 181 (69.6%).
  • JuniorHS: 330 of 939 (35.1%).

The cautious reader might have noticed that the amount of sentences actualy is smaller. The reason is that I had some problems with anki and with some sentences. Some I lost by accident, some I deliberatedly threw away.

First dream with japanese

I usualy don't remember my dreams. I don't even remember the one I had this night. But it was in japanese, for certain.

Yesterday I had done a lot of anki repetitions before watching the 4th episode of heroes, and I ended up having a heroes related dream, in japanese.

I wish I could remember more.

Went monolingual

Well, just for the sake of records. Today is the day I really went monolingual. I tried and failed a few times, but now it is for good.

I did about ~10 sentences from a list of sentences that should cover all 能力試験2級 points.

These are my current anki statistics:

The 1921 seen cards in this deck contain:
  • 1116 total unique kanji.
  • Jouyou: 1065 of 1945 (54.8%).
  • Jinmeiyou: 16 of 287 (5.6%).
  • 35 non-jouyou kanji.

Jouyou levels:

  • Grade 1: 79 of 80 (98.8%).
  • Grade 2: 154 of 160 (96.3%).
  • Grade 3: 172 of 200 (86.0%).
  • Grade 4: 148 of 200 (74.0%).
  • Grade 5: 138 of 185 (74.6%).
  • Grade 6: 112 of 181 (61.9%).
  • JuniorHS: 262 of 939 (27.9%).
EDIT: The sentences list covers 2級 grammar points, not 4級.
