Day 15: Monday 15 June
Improvements - Confidence
My confidence has definitely improved. Speaking Japanese in front of the camera doesn't seem like a big deal anymore. It's amazing how once you climb over a hurdle and look back the hurdle looks so small and you wonder why on earth you were so scared of stepping over it.
Improvements - Reading
My reading has improved ... an unexpected side effect. Normally I can't be bothered taking the time to read Japanese, but part of this project is reading the comments, so I really have to read them and understand them. It's gradually getting easier and faster. Sweet!
