As with most things people do like this, I set out with high hopes & dreams, but soon after my last post my motivation died out. After quite a bit of searching around the net I didn’t find any places with similar goals of learning just the spoken word & romaji (Latin/English alphabet), and adding in Kanji, Katakana & Hiragana never seemed like a hill I wanted to climb. That combined with zero interest from anyone on what I was attempting to do just burnt my motivation right out.
Since then I’ve been trying to maintain the Japanese I have learnt, while waiting for my motivation to return… this hasn’t been entirely successful, but I’m definitely not back where I started.
As I type this I am listening to refreshers, with the hope of moving on to something completely new in a week or so, this doesn’t really mean that my motivation has returned, but it isn’t currently at zero, so I’ll see how I go.
Lets hope all you non-existent fans of mine hear from me again soon. 🙂
