I am getting worse and worse at this. TWO WEEKS since my last update!
Anyway, I had my first Japanese 1A assessments last week and yesterday, I actually get my results back from 3 of the assessments today if all goes well, my final test for my first assessment is this afternoon which is reading and writing in Hiragana, so I'm hoping I won't do TOO terribly at that. I'm doing pretty well with the reading aspect, it's just the writing part I seem to have a little trouble coming to grips with. Ah well, it's all about persistance.
