::::::::::::How to use:::::::::::: This pack will be most successful if used every day, but for busy learners you can write freely whenever you have time. The focus is on little and often, making it easy to integrate into your study routine. Read the prompt and write a response using the grammar, kanji and vocabulary you already know. The goal is application and consolidation of your existing language skills to help make those new words and grammar points stick! After you finish, check any grammar or words you are unsure about using a dictionary, textbook, or online grammar guide. This should help you identify your common mistakes, and writing every day will help you to remember how to use those weak points with greater accuracy. Included in the pack is a cheat sheet, where all of the journal prompts are translated into English, so if you're not quite sure of the meaning you can check and start writing with confidence.
