Learning (Day 8)
Mathematics
On April 14th, I improved my 4th-grade math from 95% to 97%, my 5th- grade math from 84% to 86%, and my trigonometry improved from 89% to 91%. It's interesting how the more proficient I become, the harder it is to improve my score.
Russian
On April 14th, I began reading Eugene Onegin by Alexander Pushkin in Russian. I read alongside an audiobook that is. The book Fluent Forever by Gabriel Wyner recommends this method to become familiar with cadence and pronunciation. I still find that I am still nervous to speak in general, but this method makes it less intimidating, I just have to stop getting excited when I recognize a word so I don't miss the next 8! Lol. I think a good idea would be to reread the book after I finish this first reading.
French
On April 14th, I did my second lesson in French. This lesson was mainly on adjectives, gender, and some more pronunciation practice. I did learn the verbs for to look for (chercher), to call (appeler), and two others I can't remember! D: I plan to review them by listening to the lesson at least twice on my commute home today. However, I did well conjugating them and matching the adjective to the appropriate gender and number.

3 important (study) reminders
Your best varies from day to day. Don't overwork yourself. "Your best" doesn't mean exhaustion.
You can't go back to your best habits after a long break. Baby steps, otherwise you'll hate everything including yourself. It's just not alright to jump to 10hours of studying after weeks of doing nothing.
Consistency is built with habits. Habits can mean either do sth for 5min regarding your studies or have a full study session. (Or anything in between) Consistency doesn't equal doing the same thing, the same complexity or the same amount of hours daily. It means doing something so strive for the minimum activity when you're tired, demotivated etc.

Most memorable and awkward language exchange
Polish guy: Okay, so I'll go through this word list, and you help me with pronunciation and meaning. Also I live in a small appt with my wife and young children.
Me: Kay.
Guy: "to get off"
Me: It's a legal term!

Quitting Duolingo’s Japanese Course
So after giving it a go for at least three months, I’ve decided to drop Duolingo’s Japanese course. The main reason is there were too many sentences cropping up that were somewhat incorrect or even fairly archaic.
This would basically contradict my main sources of learning the language so it seemed counterproductive to my overall studies to continue using it. It was especially frustrating when it wants you to only construct sentences one way when you know you could actually word a sentence in another way and it would actually also be correct.
If you’re currently using Duolingo as a source to learn Japanese, I guess just keep that in mind if you start taking classes, using textbooks, and other learning materials so you’re not completely thrown off. But I definitely would recommend using other sources to learn Japanese and not solely using Duolingo.
What will I be using in place of Duolingo?
First, I’m going to go back to using Memrise more often, specifically JLPT Bootcamp’s JLPT courses. I don’t think they’ve been updated in awhile but since they’re actually geared towards the JLPT, they’re going to be that much more useful in helping me with the vocabulary and kanji side of studying.
The other sources to keep up at least with vocabulary and kanji is going back to using Anki shared decks and the Japanese Class website.
I do need to spend some more time going back and going over grammar as well, but keeping up with vocabulary is the easiest thing I can squeeze into even while I’m at work on a 15 minute break.
Anyway, just wanted to give my thoughts on it and give a little update where I’m at.

If you think your language is weird, our has different letters for literally the same sounds and we have to learn which one do we use for different words because sometimes there’s rules and sometimes guess what? Exceptions
