This will be my ログスレッド for TAC 2014 (Team tabidachi 旅立ち, 日本語).

旅立ち means "setting off (on a trip)", which seems quite apt (although I think I set off
two years ago).

I will write a 自己紹介 this time around. Honest :-)

自己紹介

皆さん こんばんは.

私はイギリスに住んでいるソフトウェア· エンジニアだ。

2012年に私が日本語を勉強し始めた。 両親はイタリア人であり、 私は学校でフランス語を少し学び、 ので、 日本語は
私の第四の言語になります。
私の本来の目的は、 日本の小説を読むことができることだったが 、 今、日本人と会話ができる ようにしたいことを決
めしました。 だから多くの本を読んで、 今年のドラマをたく
さん 見ていく予定だ。

It has indeed taken me far to long to get around to this and the more suspicious
amongst you may well
suspect that the main motivation has been that I have to produce one for
TAC 2015.

Well, that's true :-). I'll be re-posting this there and adding a translation.

For TAC 2014 my general targets are:

- to be able to read Japanese novels if not comfortably then at least with a little
help from a dictionary.
- to be able to handle basic conversations
- to be able to follow the gist a newscast

Those might be overly ambitious, but they are sufficiently subjective that I can
probably declare victory by twisting the definitions a little :-) So I should have some
measurable goals too, especially since that's one of the things that proved so helpful
during TAC 2013.

- To complete RTK3: that's another 1000 kanji or so.
- To transition from reading NHK EasyNews almost every day to reading NHK News (the one
for grown-ups) every day.
- To learn the N2 vocabulary (as defined by the memrise N2 course), so that's another
~3000 words or so.
- To learn to recognise all the N5, N4 and N3 vocabulary as kanji.
- To work through (and internalise) 日本語総まとめ and 完全マスター N3 grammar courses.
- To sit (and hopefully pass) the JLPT N3.
- To continue working through the JPOD101 Lower Intermediate lessons and to move on to
and complete the Intermediate and Upper Intermediate lessons. That's about 275 to work
through in total.
- To watch 12 films (or 12 drama series).
- To read 12 books (or 12 manga or whatever I can get hold of).

Some goals for January.

1. Continue listening to dialogue tracks.

2. RTK: I'll continue to keep this up to date and occasionally add new kanji as I come
across them. Since I should pick up about 100 new kanji each month to meet my TAC goal,
I'll try to add 100 this month.

3. I will shadow lessons from the JPOD101 Lower Intermediate Season 4. I've already
worked through the first half sentence and vocabulary mining. So I'll complete that
process and then get to work on listening intensively.

4. I'm going to make up for missing half a goal in December by watching all of 日本人の知
らない日本語 without subtitles.

5. I'm going to work through at least one EasyNHK News article each day. I'll also try
to occasionally read an NHK News article instead. For this month I'll leave my goal as
NHK EasyNews and just try to judge how much harder the full "adult" articles are.

6. Anki: Kanji. I have about 1400 kanji words to learn to complete the N3 vocabulary. I
want to sit JLPT N3 in the summer so I need to learn about 300/month. I'll set this
month's target as 300 and see how it goes.

7. Anki: Vocabulary. I'm going to use memrise for N3 vocabulary (but not yet), so I'll
use Anki to start on the N2 vocabulary. There are about 3600 new items in the deck. I
don't expect to get through all of those before the summer and I don't want to set too
high a bar for my first month of TAC. I think 300 new words will do here too.

こんばんは、 と明けましておめでとう~! 今年もよろしく お願いします!

Good goals you've set yourself! It looks like it's going to be a busy year for you! But
it's probably the most interesting of all as well!

Just one advice I could give you would be maybe to start reading the actual NHK news
articles related to the NHK easynews. You have a link before the article normally and if
you read the easy article before the real one, you'll know the topic and the outlines as
well so it'll feel easier ;)
