Check-In Post (and grammar from A Dictionary of Intermediate Japanese Grammar)

Hi guys!  Sorry this is grievously late. We had a pretty annoying weekend and I ended up completely forgetting about this.  My bad!

For those of you who tried to translate the passage from last week's check-in post, I've edited that post with the English translation.  Please take a look if you'd like!

How is everyone doing this week?  We're two weeks into March, yay!  Hopefully everyone's learned a lot of useful things.  If you can, please comment with at least one vocabulary word you've learned in the past week that you'd like to share with everyone!

I recommend A Dictioanry of Beginning/Intermediate Japanese Grammar to a lot of people.  I think these volumes are the best way get a better understanding of random grammar, and for those of you who don't yet have either copy yet, here is an entire entry for the grammar point 風に...

I'm still at it! Which is a success for me. ;) Still only missed one day past week too, and I think part of why I do stop procrastinate and study more often is that I don't want to have to report here that I've been flaking out without good reason. :)

Halfway through the sentence pattern book, and I love it. And not messing up too badly, either! Also, finished with the chapter in Genki, and have moved on to the next one. :)

I have a friend who's also doing Genki, and it's interesting to me that we go at it differently. I start with a read and write lesson, because I just love learning more kanji and want to be able to use them in exercises if they're needed there. Then I hop into the main lessons and workbook exercises. While she just does the main lessons and workbook stuff... The only reason I only do one lesson on kanji at a time is that I think it's better to switch it up a bit and not do the same thing for too long. (At least for me.) This way I don't get kanji'd out. ;)
