Yo, Brent here.
So, I was reading Spanish Only (I may be learning Japanese, but his articles are good!) and he has a guest writer named Matt. Well, he had a pretty awesome article here. (Read it now! It’s a good read.)
Anyway, to sum it up, he learned to read French by playing Chrono Trigger. Twice. And now he’s comfortable reading French.
So, I figure that I’ll put myself to the same test…Except in Japanese. So, starting tomorrow, or possibly Monday (Depending on the money issues in my house fix themselves…) I’ll play Chrono Trigger twice in Japanese. And, I’ll see if I become more comfortable reading Japanese. I figure, it’s an easy thing to do, and a LOT of words. So, I’ll be updating Twitter with a play by play for the progress, and then post the entire feed here on Japanese on a Dime.
So, get ready for some craziness!
Remember to follow @japaneseonadime to be up-to-date on this little test, and if it works, I will be the happiest Brent. At least hopefully I’ll feel more comfortable reading things, in which case I don’t have to worry about that as much.
