This week, to the extent that I can, I am going all Japanese. Obviously, my work has to be in English, and the time that I spend with my family will be in English. But, when I am alone, I will talk to myself in Japanese. I will only listen to Japanese music. I will only watch Japanese TV/movies/anime and I will watch it out without subtitles. And, for me that hardest part, I will only attempt to read in Japanese.
Generally, I have a novel with me everywhere I got. Well, for this week, it will have to be something in Japanese.
That also means that any blog entries I make this week – after this one, of course – will be in Japanese.
I saw an article on a language website about a guy who spent a month without English. I’ll be honest – I didn’t read the article. I can’t spend a month without English while living where I live and doing my job. But I can, within the limits set above, spend some time every day without English.
I have a feeling that this is going to be a lot harder than I think. It may, at times, be a lot more boring than I think. Maybe I can finish that detective novel that I’m reading today, since I will start my week tomorrow.
Wish me luck.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
