No change here! I studied for the cosmetics exam and made progress on my Matsumoto Seicho novel.
I finished one of my level 3 exam books. The last exercises in the book were listening questions. I had to listen to conversations and then say whether or not the Japanese sentences in the book were true or false. I got most of the questions right. The dialogues are read quite slow, so they are going to be good for shadowing practice later on.
I did a unit from my Read Aloud book, and practiced repeating and shadowing. I don’t think I’m picking up (retaining) the vocabulary, but I feel like I’m getting better at listening. I also did a level 4 listening comprehension question. I got 3 out of 5 questions right.
