Japanese Learning AJATT Method

Plane Timeboxing & Timeframe Workboxing

Just finished reading AJATT’s Timeboxing Triple Trilogy (TTT/3t xD) and came up with two new variations: Plane Timeboxing and Timeframe Workboxing (could be Workframe Timeboxing, but this way sounds cooler). The first one is pure conceptual and the second one is not.

Plane Timeboxing

This is mix of the mix and the standard. First we accelerate to take off with certain speed (incremental part), then fly through work (the flat), and finally when we’re nearly-done/tired we land (decremental part). I think this can prolong our durability, as Khatz could say, but didn’t:

[…]the fastest part of the flight seems the most effortless.

Timeboxes would be like this:

  • 1-2-3333332-1 (units: minutes) | Increment by one minute, flight at “good enough” speed, decrement by one minute
  • 1-2-4444-2-1 (units: minutes) | Double timebox length, flight at “good enough” speed, halve timebox length
  • 30-45-60 60606060-45-30 (units: seconds) | Increment by 15 seconds, flight at “good enough” speed, decrement by 15 seconds

As a bonus we have more Timeboxes, hence More Timeboxes=More Games=More Fun 🙂 See the times here are comperable with the original Parabolic Timebox.

(Khatz, i hope you don’t mind using your pattern ;))

Timeframe Workboxing

This variation works for learning, I suppose. This is true story, without gross details, though.

Like everyone starting RTK I begun with the Japanese numbers. To tell the truth I knew it before, but its irrelevant. It was like this: me, paper, pen and 10 secs to write down a number. Starting from 22 I got to 200. Now I have ~0 problems with writing new kanjis, whatsoever. So what was changing was not the time but the work. I don’t know how to picture it, also don’t know if it’s really a variantion. The point is to do more within each frame, to try harder, focus more. Step by step, not jumping.

It wasn’t supposed to, but turned out as Incremental Workboxing ;P

Maybe I’m going too far but this is some new way of Boxing (…?) We don’t give us The Big Goal, but number of small goals (which lead us to Big Goal, so….Workbox in Double Timebox? I feel lost myself…)

Anyways comments welcome xD
