I studied about cosmetics laws for the cosmetics exam and started a new Matsumoto Seicho story.
I finished the conversation questions in my level 3 textbook, and did some level 3 conversation listening exercises. I got most of the answers right, so I was quite pleased.
I did a unit from my Read Aloud book (I’m now halfway through it), and copied out example sentences from my HSK 1-4 vocabulary book.
I finished another story in my Matsumoto Seicho book, and did about an hour of studying for the cosmetics exam.
I started conversation practice questions in my level 3 book, and practiced shadowing for an hour using material from YouTube.
Now that I’ve been through my HSK 1-4 vocabulary book, I’ve gone back to the beginning and started copying out the example sentences. I’ve also bought two books to practice writing by comparing the characters with their Japanese versions. I also did a unit from my Read Aloud book.
I did about an hour and a half of study for my cosmetics test, and continued reading a story from my Matsumoto Seicho book.
I did quite a lot today. I did some practice questions for the level 3 test. They were idiomatic expression questions, so I had quite a lot to learn. I also did some practice listening questions. I didn’t do as well as I’d hoped – I need to practice listening more.
I did quite a lot today. I did a unit from my Read Aloud book, practiced repeating and shadowing using conversations from my level 4 test book, and copied out 112 words from my HSK 1-4 vocabulary book. I have now seen and written all the characters and vocabulary for HSK 4 at least once. The next step is to remember them.
I studied for the cosmetics test for about an hour and continued reading my Matsumoto Seicho book. It’s a short story collection and it’s taking me longer to read than his longer novels. I think this is because I’m not really into the book. I’m going to stick with his longer novels from now on.
