Hi Melissa-san! Would it be too much to ask you to share your japanese studying schedule? Like on what days, how long, how often you study. What material you cover each day or your study everything at once? I tried to search it, but I failed. I just want some more inspiration. Also could you pls show us you working space? (if it's too much, I understand)

Heya!

I apologize for such a late response; I’ve been busy. At this time, I’ve been in the process of changing my schedule to fit my current situation. I mentioned a while back that my mom is starting a school, so I’ve been interior designing, website designing, logo designing, etc. I’ve had to set blocks of time to get things done, including studying Japanese. I study Monday-Saturday for four hours per day, but I don’t study all at once.

I don’t know if you caught this awesome post yesterday, but my schedule is quite similar to this layout. My studying hours are broken up into what I will refer to as Japanese Part I and Japanese Part II, and if it’s Monday, there is Japanese Part III Bonus Study Group Session. But, all of these are two hour sessions with short breaks. I have one study session from 2:30-4:30 and another one from 9:00-11:00 (though this one changes from time to time). Additionally, I have daily goals of what I want to study and weekly goals for where I want to be. For now my weekly goals have been more focused on listening to longer segments of audio and reading longer more challenging things because I know from N4 that’s what I really need to work on. It’s important to have goals, so you have something to aim for. Fluency as a goal really isn’t enough; it’s very vague. Instead, it’s best to have mini goals–the little goals and small victories that will help you to achieve the big overall goal of becoming fluent in Japanese. This will help you track your progress, too.

I calculated that I have roughly about 580 hours starting from yesterday to study properly for the N3, so to me, it’s important to make the most of each of those hours. I don’t want to waste time doing something that won’t help me, and I want to learn actively, so in all of the things I do, I try to incorporate speaking, listening, and writing. If I’m listening to something, I try to repeat what they say, if I get something corrected that I wrote, I put it in Anki and speak it from memory, so I do a lot of interactive things like this.

Sometimes, if I have some downtime, I may pull an item out of my block of time and do it earlier in the day. I usually write at any time of the day or I do flashcards when I’m taking a break from work. So, I find that keeping my schedule solid yet flexible is working for me because that’s less stuff I have to do and more time to get things done outside of Japanese. Below, is my schedule for the week.
