  2. IWTYAL 111: How to learn hiragana with memory techniques - I Will Teach You A Language

    Thanks for such a enlightening reply Anthony.

    Yes, I think I’d love to unshackle myself from a dependency on computers and SRS systems at some point in the future.

    Definitely having managed to maintain a daily routine has been the biggest breakthrough for me this year. I reward myself at each 500 kanji milestone by buying myself samurai Star Wars figures (see pic). Darth Vader is going to be my reward for getting to the 2,136 🙂

    I live just outside of Tokyo in Chiba city and next month I’ve been invited to make a samurai movie with a company that offers to give you half a day’s training in swordsmanship and then you shoot a movie with them. So, I thought I’ll make myself a mini mission to try out your magnetic memory technique to learn some phrases from Star Wars.

    I’m going to finish my current kanji learning mission in a couple of weeks and then set forth on the next phrase. I’m thinking that, seeing as there’s on and kun readings … and there’s good and evil characters from Star Wars that I’ll use as my bridging figures … maybe I’ll picture the imperial characters with on yomi and the rebel characters with kun yomi. As this is my first steps into a larger world (oh excuse the Star Wars quote!!!) … I might place my Star Wars figures around my apartment and take pictures of them posed at their stations with props to tell the story on my journey from bed to front door. Sure enough, I get that I’ll want to internalize my memory palaces in my mind … but kind of like putting training wheels on a bike … making a map with pictures seems would be fun for my first steps.

    I’m also helping a group of language learners start learning hiragana and kanji next month. I’ll definitely add a link to this podcast in my handouts. I think if people start out by using magnetic memory from the beginning, it will be more effective in the long run. With kanji, I tried to learn the characters, their meaning and the readings all together a couple of years back. It was too much for me … so I’m now thinking that it’s a bit like plastering a wall … learning the characters and a rough meaning is a bit like preparing the surface

    – roughing it up, so the plaster (readings) stick. That said, once I get the hang of your technique – being able to bind everything together would be absolutely awesome 🙂

    Anyway,

    I’ll update you when I’ve made my first memory palace.

    PS: I’ll add 世界の終りとハードボイルド・ワンダーランド by 村上 春樹. to my book list.

  7. Tres días que conmocionaron Cataluña: Miércoles 25 de octubre | Octubre | T01 E01 | Podium Podcast

    El miércoles 25 de octubre dio comienzo en Cataluña una consecución de tres días vertiginosos que quedarán para siempre en la historia de este país. Como si de una serie televisiva se tratara, con sus giros de guion incluidos, todos los españoles vivimos en directo.

    Los periodistas de El País, Xavier Vidal-Folch y Miquel Noguer, escribieron el pasado 27 de noviembre un relato minucioso de estos tres días. Ahora, el periodista de la Cadena Ser, José Luís Sastre, conversa con ellos y recrea esas tres jornadas con ayuda de algunos sonidos históricos que se produjeron esos días.

    Ese miércoles comenzaba con agonía. El Senado ya había sido convocado para aprobar el artículo 155, tan temido por los independentistas. Es un día de reuniones: Carles Puigdemont recibirá a José Montilla y a Artur Mas, entre otros. Parece que solo dos opciones son válidas: convocatoria de elecciones o declaración unilateral de independencia.

    Tres días que conmocionaron Cataluña es una coproducción con El País.

  8. War at a Distance: the Modern Battlefield | Radboud Reflects Lecture by geographer Derek Gregory

    War at a Distance: the Modern Battlefield | Radboud Reflects Lecture by geographer Derek Gregory | Thursday 7 September 2017 | 19.30 - 21.15 hrs | LUX

    In a modern war the battlefield can be anywhere. Drones and aerial bombing mean that there isn’t a clear frontline anymore. Because of this an even larger number of citizens have become part of the battlefield. Learn from geographer Derek Gregory how aerial violence became and remains a key military strategy.
