How are y’all?
I need to start practicing typing on a keyboard in other languages because just those few words took me like 4 minutes. That’s far too long.
On my phone since it’s a touch screen the actual keyboard changes when I switch languages but on a real keyboard the letters don’t change. This makes typing in Korean and Japanese especially hard. Not as much with Mandarin because to type Mandarin I use pinyin.
Swahili’s easy though.
(that’s funny because Swahili use the same alphabet as English)
You know how I told you I’m behind in my Japanese and Chinese lessons?
Well I just got fully caught up! I’ve reached my goal for the month!
I went on Weibo for the first time in like 3 months today and I got 15 more followers without even doing anything! I wish more people I know used Weibo. It’s got such a good interface and it’s so intuitive. It would probably be my favorite social media network if people I know used it.
It’s also super good for learning new Chinese words.
Back when I used it more often I would go on Weibo and just look for characters I don’t recognize and copy and paste them into Naver translate then take notes. I learned words I’ve never encountered in any language learning material.
I’m gonna try to get back to posting study logs, I’ve been keeping track of my study habits, I just never post it. I guess I’ll tell you how I studied last week so I can tell you about this week on Sunday.
