I did an hour of practice questions for the level 1 cosmetics exam, and made progress on the novel “A Man” by Keiichiro Hirano. I wasn’t going to read any novels until after my exam, but I couldn’t resist!
I’m back into regular study! I just get up an hour earlier than usual! I did an exercise from my level 4 test book and failed miserably. It gave a word and then four options. I had to choose which of the options had the same tones as the word. I can read the word, I can say the word (but probably with the wrong tones, hence my failure), but I couldn’t do this exercise! I need to work on basic vocab for a while.
I’m back into regular language study, and it feels great! I worked out how to fit it in – just get up an hour earlier. I did some listening, which I failed miserably (it was numbers…), some shadowing, and a few exercises on indirect pronouns.
