Language: Still Studying

And Duolingo gives me a chance to brag about it EVERY SINGLE DAY! (Well, every day I study, which is the same thing.)

Also, if I haven’t mentioned this since switching from other languages to Japanese: Japanese is difficult for me! My reaction when the program shows me an exercise is:

  • Oh, no! I have no idea what this says!
  • Oh, wait, I know that word.
  • Okay, I also know that phrase.
  • Well, maybe I do know what it says.
  • [complete answer]
  • [receive happy success chime]
  • [repeat with the same lack of confidence, again and again]

I’m still struggling so much over the little connectors, like [o], [ni], and [te/de]. I still fail to see the pattern of when they are appropriate, but… hopefully I’ll get there.
