わたしはインインです。ネイリストです。IKOMA の学生です。IKOMA は日本語の学校です。
So… I enrolled myself in intensive basic Japanese language lessons starting last Tuesday at Ikoma, determined to learn Japanese properly this time.
I took basic Japanese at Bunka previously, but because it was once a week, and also because it wasn’t very structured or rigorous (of course I only came to this conclusion after experiencing the amazing curriculum at Ikoma), I ended up not being able to learn well. That’s why I chose to go back to basics and get a good foundation so that I would be well equipped to move on to higher levels if I wanted to!
At Ikoma, my lessons are 3 hours daily on Mondays to Fridays. After my lesson, I go straight to work, and to try and make up for the time I’m taking off for my lessons, I’ve been accepting more late-night appointments. It’s only my second week of this intensive study+work juggling and I’m already starting to feel the strain. Oh no! I really hope I have the willpower to push through and complete the entire course (50 lessons in total for Basic level)… the lessons are getting increasingly more fast-paced and there are tests and homework everyday. Oh well…
