November 8, 2005 – Productive not fun

Today was actually a very productive day. I got up in the morning and biked 4km to my Japanese lesson. After 90 minutes of language practice I returned home, stopping to get groceries on the way. I showered, ate, biked to work, worked a full shift, returned home and then put in some time cleaning the apartment.

Productive is good, but not necessarily fun.

November 5, 2004 – Japanese Lesson after work

The Penpal’s office is conveniently close to Mishima NOVA, my new branch. After work we met up near the station and practiced Japanese. I learned the verb ending “need to do”, which is incredibly useful.

In the Greater Tokyo area, most of the teachers don’t study Japanese because it is possible to get by without it. As you get away from the major cities, it seems like more teachers are actively studying Japanese. I am hoping that this will make it easier for me to study and improve my language skill.
