[N1 CERTIFIED INTERN] NGUYEN THI HUONG: IF FEELING TIRED, TAKE A REST AND THEN CONTINUE TO STEP FORWARD STRONGLY.
I'm Huong, so far I've been in Japan for 2 years and 8 months. For me, my time spet at LOD is a beautiful memory that I will never want to forget. The knowledge I learned at LOD, although there are only 25 lessons, is a very important foundation for me to achieve N1 degree as well as continue my next journey to conquer Japanese.
I think it's important to learn Japanese through books, but besides that, we should learn Japanese through things outside of everyday life. For example, on the train to work, I often spend time on reading brochures rather than just staring at my cell phone. Thanks to that, I know a lot of good kanji words that aren't always found in books. Or during my free time, I often watch movies, listen to music in Japanese, or talking more with Japanese people, all of which have significantly improved my Japanese, especially listening and speaking skills.
It must also be said that gaining such an achievement is not easy. There were moments when I felt discouraged and wanted to give up. But I believe that setting an objective for oneself and striving every day, bit by bit, to accomplish such an objective will make our lives much more interesting. If feeling tired, take a rest and then continue to step forward strongly!
