This blog project was a new experience for me, as I had never created a blog before. I thought that it was fairly easy to create and a good outside the classroom assignment to have a little bit more freedom and flexibility to practice Japanese. However, I must admit that the frequency with which we had to post, at times felt a little excessive, especially during times when I had a lot of other work. It was sometimes difficult to remember to post every week. But, nonetheless, I thought it was a worthwhile exercise.

I thought that it was both funny and a little embarrassing to listen to my own audio file. I realized that I said “ah…” a lot more than I thought I did. It also became even more apparent when I was fumbling over my lines. I think that the speech was a little bit more stressful than the usual skits because it was the first time we had ever done this format of presentation, we didn’t have our partners to prompt us, and the rhythm and intonation of one’s voice became even more important because one could not rely on grand gestures and funny facial expressions. Nonetheless, think it was good to have the experience at the end of our first year because it is good to get practice speaking in a variety of different settings.
