先月… 日曜日から金曜日まで日本語を勉強しました。日本語のじゅぎょうは11じ半から2時半まで。毎晩しゅくだいをしました。金曜日から水曜日まで働きました。いつも9じ終わります。木曜日に2時半休みました。時間がありませんでしたから, あまり勉強しませんでした. 大変です！
今月から, 私は週に二日を休まます. 疲れたですから.
It’s been a tough five weeks of Japanese lessons and I’ve got five more weeks to go before I complete the entire Basic course at Ikoma! I can feel my body breaking down from a lack of sleep and I’ve been taking medication on and off to keep the flu at bay but right now I think my body is caving in and I might have to see the doctor tomorrow. 😦
Having realised that I’m no superwoman and certainly not young anymore, I’m taking more time off work from April onwards so that I can get a bit more rest. I now get two days off a week (though it technically is just one day off since they are weekdays and I have my intensive Japanese lessons on weekdays and work all through the weekend). There’s a lot to be done at work, and lots to revise from my lessons outside of work, so I’m going to be quite relieved when I finally finish my lessons…
Still, despite the crazy schedule, I’m happy with what I’ve learnt from Ikoma so far – my teachers are wonderful, my classmates are fun, and I can’t believe I’ve learnt so much already compared to the last time I learnt Japanese elsewhere!
I’m going to be quite sad, paradoxically, when I have to stop my lessons at Ikoma… oh well!
