What's this?

Exactly 100 words's worth of language learning reflection daily

Friday, 2 March 2018


I’m watching another Japanese drama series: 1 Litre of Tears (yes, it’s a tear-jerker). I’m up to the 6th episode, I think. What I’ve discovered is how to use the arrow key to skip back several second (on YouTube). It’s great for nailing the odd phrase.

The other thing I’ve worked out is that languages have 2 entry levels. With the more familiar ones, I can skip straight to the read&listen both in that language. For less familiar ones, I have to use the ‘overlay system’. I replace the (written) English text one sentence, phrase or word at a time.
