Decided to buy the memrise premium subscription for the year and see if that helps me. Definitely has psychological effect of making me want to use it – because I’m now paying.

As you do when learning a language, I’m also trying to understand the culture more and so of course have been watching some Japanese movies. Hara-kiri on Amazon Prime is a really good drama, and a powerful story. I can recommend it – but not exactly a ‘pick-me-up’ which we all may need at this time in the world.

Experimenting with Anki too, which seems very popular as a learning aid.
