Hello. My name is Steve. I have been studying Japanese on and off for about 5 years. I make a lot of improvments then I stop studying so everytime I start studying again, I need to go back and review everything that I have forgotten. Sound familiar? I hope not.

To motivate myself to study and really see an improvment in my abaility to speak Japanese, I decided to try the JLPT test level 2 this year. Although I passed level 3 pretty easily, I stopped studying for about 6 months or so. During that time, I barely used Japanese at all. Now a year and a half has passed and I noticed that I have fallen so far behind that to actually be prepared to pass level 2 will take commitment and dedication. For this, I decided to make a small blog that chronicles my study habits which will hopefully keep me motivated by seeing how far I have gone since I started. In addition to the blog, I plan to write some small articles on study techniques that help me and hopefully they can be of benefit to you too!

Please come back often.
