You Are Now Also Perfect at this Flashcard! Part II

I am now both Hiragana and Katakana literate. I can read very well both systems. Some katakana still throw me off and I have trouble writing in it, and some of the sound shifts (there are more in kata) sthrow me, but I am perfect at the flashcards! I need a little more practice but as it stands I can actually read some Japanese now. It is a really good feeling to know I can read some stuff. I don’t always know what I am reading (my vocab is still tragic) but now I can use things like dictionaries because I can translate Hiragana and/or Katakana into Romanji and look them up. I think the next step is to go to Yodobashi camera and get a small pocket Japan/English Dictionary/Translator. I also need to keep up the practice of writing both systems because it becomes more permanent when I write it and actually have to think with it, rather than just read it and think about it.
