A language aficionado's dream
Komorebi Fluent started out of the need I saw for people to learn to modify their language learning to themselves instead of to other people. I've seen certain communities that are extremely toxic in their ideas on how to learn a language and I wanted to create a safe space that cultivated your curiosity around the language you want to learn or that you are already learning in a fun and creative manner. As a whole, many language learners will say that connecting your interests and everything you are to the language you are learning will help you learn it faster but often times resources aren't up to par with that mindset as they're full of boring vocabulary lists with example sentences you'd never hear from a native and grammar explanations that could put some of us to sleep. So, in August of 2020 I had the idea to create a holistic language learning planner which turned into the Komorebi Language Planner.
The word "komorebi" is a Japanese word that means "the light that filters through the leaves on trees." When I learned this word, it quickly became one of my favorites after my many years of learning the language because, as a child, I would watch this pattern drift across the walls and the floors for hours. Then, when I was working on the planner on a beautiful day in September, I caught myself following that same effect as it drifting down the wall in the living room. It's something that has always had a calming influence on me, especially since I've grown up surrounded by trees and forests, so, I decided on that as the name. I want this space to have a similar influence on people and for them to have a pleasant language learning journey instead of a stress filled one.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
In the future I will offer personalized orders! However, with the Komorebi Language Planner that isn't attainable due to the length and the amount of time it would take. Please feel free to leave a helpful review and I will take your advice into consideration with 2023's planner.
Printing my PDFs
Due to variations in individual printers, ink types, and device display settings, colors can look slightly different when printed out. If this is the case, check your ink levels or consider recalibrating the color settings on your printer or display.
How to Print:
1) Add this listing to your cart.
2) Choose your payment method.
3) After payment is complete (allow 5 mins for Etsy to process) a download link appears.
4) Download from your purchase area (https://www.etsy.com/your/purchases).
5) Then they can be opened in your browser or any PDF-viewing program then go to File > Print
I suggest using 100 gsm white paper, formatted for US Letter and prints to A4.
Understand that because I do use color in the Komorebi Language Planner, if you take it to be printed professionally anywhere it will cost you more. I recommend using it on a tablet or a computer if you don't have the ability to print it as you can add text with programs like Preview (Mac) or Adobe Reader (free for Mac and PC) or you can also upload it into GoodNotes or similar apps as a template for digital note-taking.
For the 2023 planner I will be offering more accessible and affordable options. This was my first time creating this planner so I am still learning how things work and how to make things easier for people.
