This is a Japanese language learning thread designed by and for those interested in traditional otaku media such as anime, manga, visual novels, light novels, and Japanese video games.If you have no interest in the above or want to request a translation, this is not the thread for you.Read the guide before asking stupid questions.https://itazuraneko.neocities.org/Old guide site below.https://djtguide.neocities.org/Last thread: >>20028038
I really thought djt was gone for good this time
reminder: watching ajatt/ mia videos counts towards your immersion
>>20040692Why is there a black man in a /jp/ DJT OP?
starting again for the 20th time wish me luck
>>20040745never gonna make it
25 new words left on core6k and then i'll go back to my mining deck which i started at 4k~ and stopped because i kept getting my mined words in core i thought it would be a nice relaxation period or something but actually my workload will increase because i still have to review my cards in core6k and then new words + reviews in mining deckngmi
>>20040799You can always delete that worthless core deck and focus on mining.
>>20040822At least 5 times in the past month I have seen a word with no furigana when reading that I didn't recognize and saw it within 2 days on my core deck. You cant argue against that
>>20040829So what, some obscure word you saw for the first time also popped in the core deck, and you think it's a good thing? You could always simply mine it, but it would probably be a bad idea.
>>20040829that's about 595 times too few anon, assuming 20 cards per day at 30 days per past month
you can learn with submersion they said
yoshi time for reading
So i tried setting up a text hooker, but it wont show me any text from the actual text windows, this one seems to only activate during backlog/frames, and the rest are complete gibberishIs there a common mistake i did, or are some VN's simply incompatible with ITH?
>>20041278from what i know some vns cant be hooked.
>Study one chapter.>Alright, get some things wrong here and there but I get it mostly right overall>Study the next chapter>I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING I'M GOING TO FAILLLLLLLLLLLLLL
i learned japanese to read the vast library of untranslated manga out there but in reality i haven't enjoyed anything in particular i've read that i didn't know about before. feels like i wasted my time because i didn't like being called an EOP rate
My Japanese employer wants me to write a letter of apology, should I write it in Japanese even though I'm not confident in the language or stick with English? Any tips for what I should say in my letter? Never done something like this before.
>>20041428Just suck his dick. That's customary.
>>20040316that is incorrect dude>>20041428for what
>>20041278come on cant you just fuckin read it
>>200413940/10 manga isn't reading.
>>20041464This. Also don't forget there's proper dick sucking etiquette depending on his age and social standing, whether he's circumsized or not etc.
>>20041561While you're sucking his dick you have to make sure not to bob your head more than four times every ten seconds, it's 敬語
>>20041428Just write "ゴメンね" they'll think it's cute and let you off the hook
the problem is even if you suck his dick you still need to know how to apologize while you do it
honestly you might see it as apologizing but in japan its just saying hello
what's the best method for looking up slang or shortend grammar points? is there somephrase i can add to google or something?
just bow 90 degrees and say sorry? whats the big deal lol
>>20041278try a different ITH release. maybe even from the korean ones
how come i can read novels for adults but can't make heads or tails of tweets
>>20041278Try nexthooker, it sometimes works with stuff ith can't handle well.
a Jap girl came to my town, I cringed at myself getting all pumped out and turning into a white knight just because she's Japanesebut at the same time I realised that I wouldn't be able to hold a convo with her in Japanese
>>20041689Do fat people get special privileges when it comes to the ridiculous bowing? Otherwise they would tip over..
>>20041702One is grammatically correct, the other is full of slang and shorthand to fit everything into a small message.
>>20040692i salute to whatever did OP webm. it made me motivated as fugg
>>20041723Just wear this and you're all set.
>>20040822Or you can learn frequent words first then mine and get partially random words based on topic after you're done.
>>20041278>he can't read thatLet me guess, some nigger on /vn/ told you:>bro just learn the kana, read through tae kim and use a text hooker
>>20041192This post never fails to make me smile.
>>20041741Me in the middle
>>20041898TBF it's not unreasonable to have not yet encountered 禅 even through months of extensive reading and vocab mining. Not like you'll forget it once you see it, but at the same time there are just those occasional rare/obscure shitter Kanji you only see once in a while that have incredibly niche use.Shit, I only know it because がんばれゴエモン〜ネオ桃山幕府のおどり〜 has a location CALLED ざぜん町 which did not even appear as Kanji, and have not seen it in anything since then.
>>20040696そうか, ありがとう. その点は自信はなかった. だが俺の失態を見抜いて調子に乗るんじゃねーぞ?
>>20041951>禅Anon... It's 裸. unless you're making some other point, then my bad.
question to DJT ninjas. can you translate 気持ちいい as >feels good man
yeah sure i could see that in the right situation
>>20041972Combination of both, I misread it because I don't encounter 裸 often enough to have it drilled into my skull yet because I don't read eroshitAfter this 間違い I won't forget it tho, thanks anon.
>>20042028dont make weird excuses its cool dude
it's exhausting parsing through the 4 filler nonsense particles these robots throw at the end of every sentence. be more forward you fucking cowards.

>>20041702opposite here i intentionally got good at Twitter Japanese because i knew it was hard mode
>>20042089It's called 語尾, you dummy.
do any of you use the genki books? I just finished up the first one and am moving onto the second.are there any leisure reads that you should be able to manage with the knowledge from book 1?
>>20042182That's only 0.5% of 10000 hours. Keep at it.
Turns out Anki doesn't support fcitx. This is really bad considering it's used for language study. No excuse.
is there a way to make anki autofail if you don't answer within in 5 seconds?
yeah its called running anki.exe thats pretty autofail
>>20041278Check to see if anyone has contributed the h-code for it here:http://vn-hooking.wikia.com/wiki/H-Code(if the itazuraneko guy is here, this link really ought to be in the guide if it isn't already)If the h-code is listed there, enter it into that white box underneath the buttons at the top of the window and hit enter.
where's venus guy. he's late.

>>20042413You can autoflip with the Timeboxed Answers add-on. I'm not aware of any add-on which can autoanswer cards though.
>>20042587Leave and never come back. You are a cancer that consistently lowers thread quality every day. I could forgive if you knew at least a bit of Jap but man not even that huh. Fucking pathetic.
>>20042597lol stfu noobill talk to you in japanese if youre ready to speak japaneseitsu demo ii yo lmao
I just started Anki yesterday, and these first few cards are kinda easy.Should I do more cards per day in the begining then go back to 20 later or just keep it at 20 cards?
>>20042633Depends on how long you want waste your time. Less cards per day means more time passes until you start learning Japanese.
>>20042406Yeah, that really sucks. But at least$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/platforminputcontexts/libfcitxplatforminputcontextplugin.so /usr/local/share/anki/bin/qt5_plugins/platforminputcontexts/worked for me.
>>20042406Anki is 糞ソフト. But what's wrong with ibus?
>>20042633Go wild. Try 200 a day. That's roughly the amount you'll need to review in the long run anyway.
>>20042406Why the fuck would you need that in anki?
>>20042633>these first few cards are kinda easy.Are you seriously using the core deck? You fucking moron.
>>20042671>symbolic linking a library into /bin
>>20042749Is it bad? I was just following the guide.
Wow I wish I knew about kanjitomo now i might get back into "reading"
>>20042770Skim the first two sections of tae kim today. Tomorrow download your favorite manga or anime and start mining it
dont mine just enjoy the media
mount installenjoysupport the creatorsgreetz
>>20042783what does mining mean?
>>20042807disfiguring and destroying everything before you in order to obtain some minerals that you use inefficiently (if at all) and waste
>>20042807It means putting stuff you learned into Anki so you don't have to read 18 hours a day to review all the different stuff you're learning. It's more efficient than just reading. See http://www.antimoon.com/how/usingsm-makeitems-sentence.htm
>>20042807>read manga >see kanjiDon't know it? Make a card
>>20042826>mining sentences>>20042830>mining kanjiDJT is as retarded as ever, I see
>>20042826>english>sentence cardsfucking lol
>>20042837>>englishThe fact you don't know what antimoon is makes your opinion worthless
how long have you been mining and how much of this do you understand https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rZUPyfXwEk
>>20042783I already finished Tae Kim, should I just stop with the core deck and make my own?I'm actually more interested in learning japanese for visual novels, can I start mining using that instead?
>>20042856>I'm actually more interested in learning japanese for visual novels, can I start mining using that instead?Absolutely man. Don't forget to get a text hooker too.
>>20042826Yeah god forbid you actually spend time reading. You will literally never learn Japanese.
>>20042848so tell me
>>20042869It's a site made by two Polish guys that taught themselves English then made a website in perfect English describing how they did it. It's the method and the proof rolled into one. >>20042865Reading/watching is still the only way to learn and absolutely the best, Anki is just a slight boost in efficiency for beginners
>>20042894>taught themselves Englishwow it's fucking nothing
>>20042900You realize the process of learning any language is the same, right? Language is built into your brain
>>20042830>>read mangaNot possible bud. Manga isn't reading.
>>20042921the only fair issue is theres a bit of a barrier i see for eops to actually get in the mixits much easier to get down and dirty with real eigo imothus 10000 hours of eigo subbed anime or your gay
How long did you take to go through Tae Kim's?
>>200429501 week, but I was lazy
10000 hours of 4chan work wonders
>>20042959This is unironically how I learned English. 2ch here I come.
>>20042959I've been here for a decade, I wonder if I've hit that number yet.
So some of you might know Kanshudo, it has this neat search that breaks kanji down into their components / partsUnfortunately you can't easily use your own mnemonics on Kanshudo, so I've pretty much recreated Kanshudo in an excel sheet that allows me to paste in a Kanji and it creates a copy-pasteable anki snippet of a kanji's components (and the components' components) with my own mnemonics I have defined in said excel sheetI'm thinking about polishing this up and turning it into an actual website, pretty much like kanshudo (kanji with component-trees) mixed with koohii (mnemonics are user created and you can vote on the top mnemonics so they can easily be used by others). Looking for feedback if anybody would actually be interested in such a website, otherwise I won't bother with the public community voting-functionality and keep it local to myself onlypic related, kanshudo which breaks down a kanji into parts with (unfortunately shitty) mnemonics. It'd essentially be that, except the mnemonics are user-created and you can either create your own mnemonics, or use other users'
>>20043019if someone is going to dedicate time to isolated kanji study then they can just do RTK which teaches component parts and gradually builds up to more complex kanji. Also koohi is shit for memory, but probably good if you're just doing lazy kanji or some shit like that because you're afraid of reading
>>20043119Yeah I thought as much.I think inidivudal kanji study like RTK is retarded, so I'm learning kanji in the order they actually appear in my reading material. If I don't know a kanji's components I learn those with the actual vocab (which is why I like Kanshudo's complete breakdown of a kanji, since it just lets me learn everything at once for a piece of vocab)But I'm guessing I'm pretty unusual in that way of doing things
>>20042856>I'm actually more interested in learning japanese for visual novels, can I start mining using that instead?of course. and you might have better results than me if you mine, since i haven't learned jack diddly squat from leyline in the month i've been reading it.
>>20043175>reading leyline>for a monthwhuhhhhhhhhh? reading for 20 minutes a day while you shitpost DJT for the rest of that study time isn't gonna get you very far anon
>>20043343what are you confused about? in fact i'm barely a fraction of the way through it. maybe you think i meant the total time i've spent reading it is 1 month even though i obviously mean i've been spending an hour or two a day reading it for a month.
that didnt really help your case there mateso let me ask you are you ready to stop having aids forever or is this ok
>>20043343One month is a reasonable time to finish the trilogy.
I wish Jamal would just die
>>20043436It's not just his posts that are bad but the off-topic posts he provokes, like ours. DJT would be better off without him.
>>20043413how many hours of reading per day?
dont blame me cuz noobs cant control their aidsdjt wasnt better off before me and has only gotten better with mebut it can only truly get good with (you)
>>20043019It could be useful if it displayed simillar looking characters.
>>20043466He's not causing the cancer, he is the cancer. He is your responsibility and only you can make him go away.
How many more posts on DJT until I'm fluent?
>>20043515just one more anon
>>20043530Are you doing a live stream?
>>20043538no thats u
Guys can we please get back on topic? I've been learning Japanese (Nihongo) for 3 years now... 1 year self study and 2 years in uni. And i feel like the kanjis are just not sticking with me. What should I try to memorize them for more then a week? I now about 100-120 kanjis already and can read basic material in romanji and a little bit in hiragana. What can I do to improve my learning? I want to be fluid in Japanese in 5-10 years, is that a reasonable expectation? And is it even possible to read easy mangas by learning yourself (without taking a class)?
>>200435489999 more posts on DJT
remember to keep it all in perspective
>>20043559should probably replace the text from "growth vs fixed" to "neurotypical vs. depressed"

woah another evening of jamal getting destroyed.
>もラダメだthis is a fuckup in the OCR and it should've been もう probably, huh.>>20043624this isn't even the real jamal, he hasn't once recommended wayne p lammers' "japanese the manga way" since he came back.
nothin wrong with japango the mango way its great and even epic but i dont have any real attachment to it and djt already does a good job debating beginner books ad infinitum lol
>>20043713Don't use a beginner book. Just know enough japanese to enjoy all the awesome light novels. When will you retards learn?
Man if I could go back in time I would have started with the VNCore deck. I'm almost done with it and I did the Tae kim deck, RTK deck, and 2k core already but the vncore was more helpful than those imo. I was watching a bunch of shit last night and was getting about 99% of it now. Very noticeable improvent from a 1250 card deck.
>>20043733poorly memed honestly
>>20043739I was being unironic. I am annoyed with all the anki/matt/tyler kimberly posts.
taylor kim the greatest nihongologist of them alllook at how many poor fools hes saved
anki is technically reading
so is steins;gate readable without having lurked 2ch during the time it was released, or am i going to be constantly referring to the japanese equivalent of know your meme dot com?
would it actually make any difference in this case
>>20043776you're right but i'm planning for the future like a grown adult
>not taking 30 mg of adderall before you study>not doing anki 12+ hours a day>not getting fluent in 6 monthsyou either want it or you don't
its reasonably dated by now but for the most part not horrifically soreally its not so much the cringe netslang repository that id worry about its the world itself of that time portrayed in the game
Things that every successful learner has read:Yotsubatonekoparaoreimoharuhire:zeronhk e youkosoif you have not read all of these you can not learn japanese
>>20043797if im fucked on that either way then i guess it's fine if i just go for it huh?
>>20043802>nhk eYou sure you've read any of these?
things that every successful learner has readthe bibleif you have not read all of these you cannot do anything
>>20043806yea dont think just play if you have any inclination to do anything just do itand do it without looking to the internet first for some kind of direction because as soon as you do youre fucked forever
>>20043829i just thought i'd idly toss out the idea to my pals at djt, whose opinions i trust and whose love i cherish

Why are there so many N5 words towards the end of Core 6k, yet N3+ words are introduced within the first 1-2k? Doesn't this order seem a little whack?
>>20043858because of frequency of use I would guess
just got this in the mail, looks cool
>>20043829at any rate i'll probably give it a try after i finish reading the first volume of index. this feels like a step up from the easy lns ive been reading but still comprehensible. though i really want to be reading >>20043854
just got this in the mail looks cool
>>20043883so go for what u wantmake it happen
Can we just remove core from the guide? Or stop linking the guide? It's just confusing more noobs than anything
the guide should just be a reading list.
reading isnt reading.
>>20043919Everyone who can be confused by the guide should be confused by it. We're not selling the one true method but urging people to think for themselves.
whos we you fuckin cultist
>>20043926Literally everyone that reads it starts doing core because it shills it so hard
the guide should just be
一緒 に い て も 面 白 く 無 い い.
>>20043922We're not all hardcore like you. I was not serious about learning Japanese when I started out. I just downloaded an app for something to do when brushing my teeth. I remember the first 5 were super hard! But near the end it got easier. Hopefully kanji is the same way...Another thing is that I have been learning it for 2 years now. Off an on. So I feel like it's something I know. Not something that I have crammed for and will forget. I have known all my kana for a few months now but I am now at a point where I can read it well and fast without mistakes. I bought genki 1 in May but didn't want to start until my kana was solid. I will start it tonight. I didn't post much but I read here alot. Also I used to think the matrix was all weird characters but now since I know all the kana it makes sense to me!
more core BSExplain this "optimization":流れる is card 1408流れ is card 5146Literally the fucking same shit but 4000 cards deeper. Whoever ordered this should feel bad.
>>20042807It means read the guide and stop abusing spoiler tags.
>>20043975Stop doing core. Start learning Japanese
>>20043981I think core could be a wonderful tool is the card order wasn't arranged by a brainlet. Half tempted to do it properly myself, because this is just a mess.
馬鹿野郎の国 -They Can't Understand It-
>>20043974I'm in a similar boat but having problems. I've been starting hiragana for over 4 years now I get it going for a couple weeks then I stop completely im tired of it. If you (or another someone else here) could tell me what you do I would really appricate it - thank you! Also did you have the same problem as me or what issues did you face starting out?
>>20043974This is probably a reddit post but I am not hardcore, I just love light novels and anime. That is it nothing more nothing less. I feel most people here are not the smartest and maybe 1% may go on to learn japanese but if I can get the one percent into light novels as well that is a win for me.
>>20043736>but the vncore was more helpful than those imo.How many words are in VNcore that aren't in Tae Kim and Core2k? It can't be a lot.
>>20043984It would still be shit.
>>20043975Yea to be honest 6k core is too deep into core. Some of those cards are pointless. Delete all your decks, make a deck from whatever you're reading. I got this app on my tablet I can upload text to so I upload books onto it, and it analyzes it and make it into a touch and word/expression and get definition thing. You can save all of your words for review later automatically too.
can anyone answer my question? >>20038667
>>20043975>Whoever ordered this should feel bad.He's shit at everything he does...
>>20044096dude hes listening to narrations by the kugster now hes totally getting on track・・
The only real reason to learn nipspeak is because city pop.
>>20044093Go watch something you are compelled to understand and capable of doing so with a little effort.
ive been learning Japanese mostly through wanikani and learn hiragana/katakana. I delved slightly into tae kims grammar guide and can make simple sentences like, I am well and I love Japan. Im wondering what else I could do to make it feel like im really progressing. Im learning the vocab kanji slowly but I feel like I forget a great amount of it still. The problem is I dont feel like im progressing much as I still cant hold a conversation or complete longer sentences. What are some things you veterans used to get to fully speaking Japanese?
i love city pop https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QKPi-FvPNM&t=31
theres nothing city nor pop about inaka monkeys screeching into a mic dont at me btw
>>20044231this thread is for learning to understand japanese rather than learning to produce japanese sentences, you're looking for /int/

after switching out of nihongo I hate english and all of it's damn spaces. I keep typing words together.
>>20044231>ive been learning Japanese mostly through wanikani and learn hiragana/katakana.Unless you are reading and listening to compelling content aimed at adult native speakers, you aren't learning Japanese.
>>20044419>aimed at adult native speakersManga confirmed as not reading
>>20044410>god I wish but thats near impossible when I cant even get a white oneMatt, is that you?
>>20044410>rude and unhelpfullIt's not. Now you know what you're doing is at best a waste of time. That's why you're struggling.The guide in the OP is equally useless, only use it for all the resources.Now go and read some real world japanese, none of that textbook stuff or graded readers. Do that for 10000 hours and you'll know japanese.
>>20044419why would I read or listen to it if I dont know what they are saying?

>>20044440how do I read something I dont know the words to?
>>20044428>Hahaha look what embarrassing things this high schooler wrote!Anon pls, I'm sure you were just as if not more cringey. Also, Matt actually learned Japanese and now makes close to $3k a month from that. What about you?
>>20044441Do you think you're learning anything if you already know what they're saying?
>>20044451Same way you learned English from scratch, retard
>>20044451jeez I don't know, if only we had something like a big indexed list of japanese words with english translations that could be searched by entering a keyword.
>>20044451start VNcore before anything bro
>>20044451finish watching 10000 hours of animethen you should know most of the words but not how to read thembut then youll learn how to read them and then everything will snowball into some epic winalso godwin ftw
>>20043769Haven't played S;G yet, but I would assume that, like Chaos;Head, it has an in-game glossary explaining all the internet slang (and other terminology).
>>20044458>>20044462not sure why you are being offensive, but my point is if im reading something and I dont know the kanji or the word ill just be reading the hiragana and not know what is being said. Do I just read the hiragana and eventually understand it?
>>20044484https://youtu.be/lxKvMqPl6j4OMG I learned German just by listening to German!
>>20044498>falling for a meme from the 70's
>>20044484What.I don't even understand your question.Just fucking read. For 10000 hours.Don't translate, just read and try to understand.Rinse and repeat. Some people make anki flashcards from new words, others don't. As long as read and listen daily for at least an hour, preferably more you'll get there. It'll take years but if you consume compelling content that shouldn't be a problem Practice some listening as well (either raw or with jp subs)
Just watch all of terrace house. You'll be damn near fluent.
>>20044532i watched all of BGND and i can only notice about 100 words.

>>20044441Because that's the only way you learn to understand what they're saying.Trust me, nothing else works. I wasted so much time reading grammar guides and doing pre-made Anki decks and studying kanji and all that sort of shit and it got me nowhere. The only thing I have seen results from is reading and listening for several hours every day.
>>20044532Reality shows are bad enough, but foreign one? No thanks.
>>20044658this is only true if theres some way to make things comprehensiblethe only sure fire way i know how to make that happen is to watch 10000 hours of english subbed anime
>>20044663Yea who would ever want to see language used in a real situation.
>>20044452>Matt actually learned Japanese and now makes close to $3k a month from that.By giving bad advice to people which he keeps having to back-peddle on.Speaking of which, you need to check his Patreon again. His supporters are leaving in droves lately, no doubt as a result of this. He's at just over $2.5K now (before Patreon and the taxman take their share).
>>20044678>this is only true if theres some way to make things comprehensibleThat's what a J-E dictionary is for.>english subbed animejamal pls
>>20044683$3.5k just in patreon not to count his youtube revenue and he probably makes some money off of djt I bet.
>>20044700lol I mean ajatt
>>20044581you should have played it in japanese
>>20044700>$3.5k$2.5k, and falling.>not to count his youtube revenueWith the tiny amount of views his videos get and how infrequently he uploads, that won't be enough to be even worth mentioning.
>>20044697j-e dictionary doesnt make things comprehensible it just defines things theres a differenceenglish subs is definitely where its at if youre a noob babydont worry about the "quality" of the subs all they are are markers to keep you going in the right direction10000 hours of that and i guarantee youll have the ability to make most things comprehensible in japanese to varying degrees and youll only get better from therei guarantee it or my name isnt jamal of the djt
>>20044683>His supporters are leaving in droves lately,his peak was like 2700. nobody is leaving in droves.
>>20044725well it says there your name is yung jamal or w slash e so i guess you cant guarantee shit
>>20044725Do you have an AniDB account or anything? Lets see the proof your 10,000 hours of anime.
>>20044731i guaranteed youd make that post>>20044734dont you just want to watch lots of anime because anime rules?if not then dont do itbut if you do its gonna pay mad dividends ftweither way focus on the anime ruling and enjoying it part and not the semi arbitrary number of hours or trying to learn japanesethats prolly the hardest part of it all when youre permanently crippled
>>20044758you didnt guarantee shit standard dot reply for standard dot shitpost
right on script
>>20044758can i enjoy my way towards 10000 hours of anime while at the same time enjoying my way towards reading more?
>>20044807you can do whatever the fUCK u wanna do
Guys I can't do it. Anime is too fucking boring when 99% of it is gibberish.
>>20044810in that case i'm gonna languish in jrpgs and never learn more than beginner-tier japanese until i die
>>20044790>>20044795romaji hurts my head
>>20044814agreed but luckily i've forced myself through it thus far
>>20044814Maybe now you can use your time to learn Japanese instead of listening to grey noise.
>>20044847I'm doing what you guys told me to do
>>20044854No one here told you to watch incomprehensible input.
>>20044814rewatch things you've already watched before
>>20044814You got meme'd son is all, time to start learning for real now.
>>20044874Nothing is comprehensible.>>20044880I tried. That's double boring
>>20044884Double boring or not it's at least comprehensible. You only have to do it for one or two hundred hours
>>20044884>Nothing is comprehensibleumm you're expected to have at least 30% comprehension before emmersion you know?
>>20044898How many core words is that?
>>20044015Core 2k/6k has three different sorting indexes which will alter the words found within the initial 2k.You can have a look at a comparison of VN Core, Tae Kim vocabulary (as introduced in his vocabulary lists) and those aforementioned Core2k/6k indexes, here:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vIR1INVlFupWp5Cqfihjw26wXIkD3WswbSVpgO4tLsk/edit?usp=sharing
Anyone know what the 2nd kanji in this is? ocr doesn't get it.
>>20044930You'd know 据 if you did rtk
>>20044944Ah, the classic easy word with a weird kanji, thanks.
>>20044951he'd also know it if he read for 300 hours, and he'd get some language acquisition out of it instead of useless knowledge of chinese characters
which is exactly what hes doing lmoa
>>20044953>playing saga>樹 pops up>look it upwhy do they do this shit?

that sounds fairly ftw actually
>>200449061250 card vncore deck gives you about 40% of most common anime words and expression. Someone recommended it a few months ago so I did it and it's pretty solid.
when does reading stop being boring and shitty and become something i want to do for fun, and not because it's supposedly the best way to learn the language?
>>20045103well, what're you reading and how much of it are you understanding
>was sick>turn on my computer for the fist time in a few days>launch Anki>500 reviews due>100 cards usually takes me at least half an hourI'm not going to make it. Go on without me.
>>20045163time to delete anki and start reading
>>20044953No, it's not the same thing as 座る.
>>20045163Just do 50 reps a day until none are left then continue as normal
>>20045163delete your bad shared deck and start mining
>>20045163>20 seconds per cardthis is a problem
>>20045030>gives you about 40% of most common anime words and expressionNot even 10%.
>>20045204It's closer to five or six seconds per card, I just have a horrible memory and only get about 30% of cards correct
>>20045114this so far:https://pastebin.com/z3xjzb7dthanks to yomichan i have a gist of it i think. i'm sure there's a ton of details i'm getting wrong or missing.
>>20045283leyline is a pretty good VN, but if it's your first read then it's gonna be tough. unfortunately your first read is going to be tough no matter what. i think the issue with VNs for beginners is that it takes forever for them to become very interesting and you might burn out before then. have you tried reading kino no tabi? since each chapter is a self contained story, you get a complete experience each time you finish one. it's a little bit harder but it'll at least give you a full beginning, middle, and end each time and thus might lead to a more satisfying result. just don't get stuck on the prologue because it's a little philosophical and might be confusing.
WITHOUT INDIVIDUAL KANJI STUDY YOU WILL NEVERNEVEREVERBE ABLE TO READ SPECIAL ATTACK NAMES IN CHUUNI MATERIAL
>>20045283Are you me?I feel exactly the same way, am reading the same VN and have gotten about that far.
>>20045397Give me a quick rundown on the best way to do Individual Kanji Study.
>>20045397or you could just know the kanjis from other things you know ftw
>>20045437The fact that I never googled for a second opinion for an entire month means I will never learn Japanese.
>>20045439That first example has nothing to do with the rest of the explanation so it's not really your fault
>slapped the clothes right off herif one character could be a chad it would be touma
how do i batch crop the hardcoded eng subs in the bottom 40px of all videos in a Gamecenter CX folder
>>20045460attach some plain black masking tape to the bottom of your screen while watching.
>>20045210Depends on the show. Some shows you'll be able to get about 80% comprehension on.
the negative てform of 話して is 話さなくて right? Or should I use, ないでください?
>>20043802Manga isn't reading though.
>>20045520The て form of i-adjectives is split into くて or いで depending on usage. If you want to ask someone not to do something you use いで.
>>20045574woah what in the fuck?
>>20045574Ah, so for the sentence please don't speak English it would be.英語を話ないでください？
I was so concerned about which way of learning was the best then I realized it doesn't even matter in the end
>>20045598You are right, the method of learning doesn't matter when it's impossible anyway
>>20042406Just use ibus. It just werks and it's easier to setup.
>>20045593で not を
>>20045593you forgot your さalso it's the default to use で for using a language, like 英語で考える
>>20045621eh? the さ in ください is there or did you mean somewhere else? 有難う！

>>20045758there's a difference in making random shitposts in a vacuum versus getting literal constant input and immediate corrections on your output as well as having the language drilled into your head as part of your school curriculum but likego off i guess lmfao
>>20045793>there's a difference in making random shitposts in a vacuum versus getting literal constant input There's nothing stopping be from getting constant input.>and immediate corrections on your output You learn from input not corrections>as well as having the language drilled into your head as part of your school curriculumYou learn from input, not by taking nip classes
>>20045793output corrections don't affect anythingconsidering that bilinguals don't have the problem either it's safe to say that small amounts of production within your ability are not an issuethe issue is when you try to translate from one language to the language you don't know well or you're forcing reproductions of exercises with other incompetent non-natives like european schools make people do
>>20045793Nobody has ever learned their native language because of school. Trivia about it, yes. The language itself, no. There are cases where they have learned to read because of school, but this is obviously not necessary at all, especially in a world where kids have internet-connected supercomputers in their pockets.
school life literally shapes your language ability largely because its where you spend a good chunk of your day amongst your peers in frankly a mini society
and without school you would just hang out with people and it would have the same effect or maybe even better because of more age group variation
>>20045807>>20045809>>20045822there's too much stupid shit here for me to respond to all of without looking like i'm mad so i'm gonna leave you guys with this:>he thinks early output is a good idea
outputting from day 1 is how it should be if youre getting quality nihongo timeif youre doing flashcards in your room that is not quality nihongo timeif youre texthooking hentai games thats not quality nihongo timeif youre not texthooking hentai games thats still not quality nihongo timeif you dont get quality nihongo time you will suck foreveror at best progress very slowly and itll still mostly fall apart like a jenga tower if quality nihongo time ever does happenso the question is are you getting quality nihongo time?
>>20045896nobody here sincerely thinks that forcing production is a good ideathere is nothing, however, wrong with production if it is spontaneous and natural, that's just the brain doing its thingbasically what jamal is trying to say in >>20045916 when you strip away him making fun of people who know more japanese than him
>>20045916My only mistake is the lack of output. Learned pretty much everything I know by pure brute force reading. Probably makes be better than 99% of djt.
ive given props many times to good nihongoers when theyve been posted so idgi sounds like you wanna try to talk shit but aint got the nerveif anyone wanna rumble bring it

I missed you guys. Haven't been here in years. I failed at studying Japanese though.
you can fail in studying it but succeed in learning ityou just gotta get quality nihongo time

>>20047038>太陽日should just be 1曜日
>>20047060but what if they're wrong?
>>20046960Considering how many time related words exist for oddly specific sections of time (下旬、中旬、上旬、初旬, etc) I'm kind of sad they didn't take the days of the week to extremes when talking about every repeating instance of a given day. Mostly by choosing plural or larger/broader forms of words. Exmaples follow:>Every 日曜日 in a month = 星曜日 (せいようび)>月曜日 = 朏曜日 (はいようび)>火曜日 = 炎曜日 (えんようび)>水曜日 = 湖曜日 (こようび)>木曜日 = 森曜日 (しんようび)>金曜日 = 宝曜日 (ほうようび)>土曜日 = 地曜日 (unorthodox reading, ちきゅうび as an abbv of 地球曜日)
>>20045793>and immediate corrections on your outputlol this dumbass thinks children get immediate corrections while they're learning their L1.
>>20047118Yes they do. I have two nieces and when they say something wrong parents always correct them.
>>20047180yes im sure your niece's pretentious parents are representative of societyliving life in a society that speaks your language is enough to give you corrections it's when you don't that you get creoles forming and then they just form their own society and bam now you get corrections again

>>20048041This guy thinks 2 hours of reading a day is excessive
>>20048065Personally I think they're trying to hold others back and not help them. It's a well documented phenomenon where some people who learn japanese get jealous of other learners, and try to get them not to move to japan, etc. That or they think people are retarded like them and can't handle it. They said you can only focus on learning for a few hours but I go all day sometimes.

Semantic satiation (also semantic saturation) is a psychological phenomenon in which repetition causes a word or phrase to temporarily lose meaning for the listener, who then perceives the speech as repeated meaningless sounds.
>>20048638Not even Japanese people can read lists of names without being told how to read them. That's why businessmen exchange meishi.
>>20048736They can probably read the vast majority, but then again, names have a lot of readings so there's no way to get them right.
no you had it rightits not hard to read the vast majoritythen just period after that

remember our guy matt said his teacher in japan fucked up most of the names he read aloud for attendance so don't listen to people here claiming that the readings are "obvious"
>>20048638I can't understand why furigana isn't mandatory for names.

>>20050020What is with all you meme learners and mattcocksuckers who are so obsessed with time. It's a process, it takes years of DOING i.e. speaking and "producing".Language is and has always been a tool for human communication. It's not like autistically memorizing a list of pokemans. Similarly people learn the piano by playing it. They don't learn by staring at sheet music 8 hours a day and never touching a single key.
>>20050388>speaking and "producing"i couldn't care less about output for now, which is why i won't start practicing it until a year or two passes.i've read enough anecdotes from people who learned from immersion to know that output isn't required to improve your comprehension to n2 and n1 levels within a couple years.
>>20050388>its not like memorizing a list of pokemansbut my pokemon deck.....
>>20050214Thanks. I never thought of the ghosts as being bashful. Now the comic makes more sense.
>>20050398You know you're doing output in your head already all of the time. Whenever you read or even listening you are regurgitating output in your head. If you hold off on practicing it too long you'll only be adding to your work later unless you never plan on talking.
someone ask in kemushi's q&a how she feels about getting bleached
Why is new interval default to 0%? Does Anki really think I've completely forgotten a card if I can't pass the rep after not seeing it for 6 months? I googled and some people have it at 100% to remove the whole stupid interval penalty. What does djt do?
see the last 10 or so posts for what djt does

>>20050881just play the ones with the freaky sex shit o _ O
>>20050881you're exactly right.t. beginner who's been reading a VN (leyline) and doing VNcore for a month
shoulda played a good hentai game instead of a bad 1
>>20050927wtf.... i'm pretty sure i've seen u endorse leyline before....
its a good game anon just has a dried grape for a brain so its best to tell him to find something mindless his chimp head can enjoy until he can read the good stuff
>>20050936wrongaroo matey im pretty sure i even called it gayline at some point
>>20050942>its a good gamewhich one?
>>20050942>dried grapeIsn't that a raisin?
>>20050881>>20050914and i'll be a good case study for how much enjoyment matters. because i'm not enjoying this shit ass VN but i'm still forcing myself to read it every day. i am curious how someone who reads manga they enjoy will compare to me after 6-12 months, given similar hours every day.
>>20050986now youre learning

>N2 students only know 1000 kanjiThis can't be right, right? I mean at n2 level you must be nearing all joujoy
>>20051051I don't know how this shit show is so popular. The villains are all so comically evil that it's impossible to take them seriously or refrain from cringing in embarrassment for everyone involved with the show every time they show up on screen.
>>20051094I took a few practice N2's, aced the kanji part 90%, then got 30% on grammar, and 50% on vocab. To be honest the kanji is probably the hardest part but I learned everything backwards doing ajatt.
>>20051107how long had you been doing ajatt when you took the test senpai?

Hey guys, I started listening to Japanese horror films while I sleep for them epic nihongo gains. So how do I stop the horrible nightmares?
>>20051132It's really hard for me to pick a top 5 because I like lots of different shows for different reasons. Ignoring all objective criteria and just going with those I have particularly special feelings for, I guess it would be...TV: Gochi Usa, Overlord, Kino no Tabi, Spice and Wolf and Haruhi. Special mentions to Gankutsuou, Big O, LoGH and Madoka.Movie: Windaria, Mononoke Hime, Spirited Away, Tokyo Godfathers and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Special mentions to Nausicaa, Howl's Moving Castle, Hotarubi no Mori e and Akira.

>>20051261>2 years in and he knows as much japanese as a chinese person
>>20048966katakana should be the legal requirement for names.
>>20051390>as much japanese as a chinese personnot even close.
i mean if you watch it like its undeniable how well hes doing as a result of rtkit really works
guys anime sucks fucking dick there's gotta be good podcasts where they debate or some shit
>>20050787100% seems like a horrible idea to me. I use 40%.>>20051132FMA:BHaruhiGlass MaskShingeki no KyojinClannadSomeday I am going to rewatch Glass Mask and realize it isn't very good, but until that day it will stay on my list.
>>20051513>I use 40%What's your retention rate?
>>20051511umm anime owns try watching a good 1https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iflsELvgrfw
>>20051493Except he's permanently crippling himself by thinking in english before japanese when he see's a kanji. I learned the main reading alongside or even before the english when I did the rtk deck. His brain will do Kanji → English → Japanese It would take years to fix that even after he learns japanese.
>>20051540i'll watch it when i can understand it but as listening practice it is always torture. and i've already watched a ton of it raw. i think podcasts will be much more enjoyable for the next few months.
>>20051548as much as i want to perpetuate this forever its worth saying that if you learn japanese the problem disappearsthe problem only exists when you dont know japanese
>>20051569I mean his brain is so fortified with english interpretation monolingual transitioning doesn't even seem possible. I might be wrong but it seems common sense it would hurt the process.
>>20051548oh no. how will chinese people ever learn to read japanese when their native language is interrupting them all the time.
>>20051584i dont think it actively causes any new problems that werent there in the first place
>>20051593thats why you don't see many japanese fluent chinese people
>>20051584you're definitely wrong considering how many matt drones made the monolingual transition after his retarded "do rtk and listen for 3 months" advice
>>20044428now that hes had 7 years to mull it over maybe its time for matt to make a definitive guide to getting a japanese girlfriend

Has Jamal really been shitposting for years? Literally why?I have done shitposting but shitposting in academic areas is uncool
define academic area
>>20051812Every recurring thread/general/board has dedicated shitposters, that's just how it is. Even though this place is 99% normalfags there are still some actual factual honest to God loons on here.
>>20051812Nah he started shitting up the thread like 2 years ago after DJT got purged off /a/ to replace sakurautist as the resident shitposter
>>20051812>Literally why?brain problems
>>20050914You're gonna make it.
Anyone here with the soul of the jester?
Does anyone have a working download for Shin Kanzen Master N1? Seems to be down on the Cornucopia
Anyone else at N0?
>>20052288Sorry to burst your bubble but the fact that you even had to look that up shows you're about N4.
>>20052393Broski I was literally just reading random ass pages on a random Japanese grammar learning site which has most of its articles written purely in JapaneseI found it entertaining that this "grammar point" was in the "N0" level
I can't believe I've read NHK easy for months now without noticing this, especially after finding easy articles to be too easy since there's so few to read.
>>20052445time to move up to TBS news
I'm never skipping a single day again i fucking swear.
Imagine learning Japanese in order to read news
>>20052757Just know that you have fellow cellmates like you out there if you need motivation.
>>20052757I've yet to skip a day but I'm a NEET so there's probably nothing to be proud of.
>>20052761Imagine not using such a great source like NHK Easy to get you to a solid intermediate level within weeks.
>>20052904Imagine not doing the same or better reading porn.
>>20052923Imagine thinking that knowing a hundred innuendos for penis and semen is more important. 10 or 12 is enough.
>>20052904weeks? i've read leyline for a month and can't understand shit. why didn't anyone tell me nhk easy was the key?
>>20052931Imagine thinking compelling content is inferior to oversimplified, unnatural language used in easy news.
>>20052937they're shitpostingkeep doing what you're doing, it's what I did and I made it
>>20052941Imagine thinking that simplified speech is bad for beginners.
>read 150 lines in an hourMy speed is improving, but my understanding is not.
>>20052960I said imagine believing, not actually believing.
>>20052962comprehension comes when you stop forcing yourself to read faster than you can comprehend, and also after reading for the long term (think years)
>>20052968fact: simplified speech is bad for beginners
kore sore are dore koko soko asoko doko koitsu soitsu aitsu doitsu kou sou aa dou
>>20052977Fact: I guess I should have just jumped straight into post-graduate research articles about theoretical physics then.
>>20052937you gotta be responsible for yourself dude as youre finding outalso the only people who "made it" are the ones who got quality nihongo time which is not something attainable through any of the bullshit pushed around here : )
>>20052979wtf i love nihongo now
>>20052985yep>>20052987you never made it, stop pretending you did
i aint pretending shit also id never use the term "made it" thats why i put it in quotes because thats some djt flashtard shittime to dance muppets lets play
Jamal has litteraly not slept for 70 hours now
>>20052904> solid intermediate level within weeks
>>20053173こんな状況で i cant go to sleep
did you mean: こんな状況で寝れないor did you mean: こんな状況で寝ることが出来ないor did you mean: こんな状況で寝るがダメ
>>20053186Gloss over what N5-N3 grammar is full of, none of it is particularly difficult to remember or time-consuming. Read all the NHK Easy articles from the past 2 years once and you'll be a solid intermediate when you finish and it won't take more than a month unless you're a lazy dekinai who only studies an hour a day.
>>20053283How many hours per day do I have to study to not be a lazy dekinai? Asking kinda seriously
>>20053283I would define N1 as the beginning of intermediate. N3 is just a helpless baby who can't do anything without tools.
The only reference I can find to "vncore" is from you faggots. Someone's gotta give a fellow anon a link to this fabled deck.
>>20053397>I would define advanced as the beginning of intermediate.at least admit that words are meaningless and conversation is a game to you>>20053431it's in the cornucopia of resources (treasure box) in the op
should the point where you know enough that you can immerse and enjoy yourself and learn that way be considered intermediate???
>>20053437I don't know man if someone tells me they're intermediate at biking I don't expect to see them riding on the sidewalk with training wheels as mom holds their shoulders.
>>20053448thats considered the good end
>>20053448No, you are only intermediate when you can pass an arbitrary n3 exam online.
>>20053437Most people able to pass N1 are far from advanced.https://www.jlpt.jp/e/about/pdf/cdslist_e_all.pdf
>>20053465N1 is advanced and you're dumb to argue otherwise. Past N1 is fluency, but there is a big gap between N1 and fluency. Probably as big of a gap as N5 > N1.
dont your arms get tired from all that hand waving
>>20053465advanced learner does not mean nativelike. that would literally just mean that advanced learners aren't learners anymore. you're an idiot.
>>20053465This list seems wrong. I consider myself n5-n4 based on what I am able to understand online, but by that list I am n3.
~as long as you live you are a learner~
intermediate is wherever the person speaking is right now
intermediate is about this big
>>20053474>>20053492I'm not gonna call someone who can't watch the news or read a book without a dictionary "advanced" just so your ego doesn't get hurt. Sorry.
>>20053521Advanced learner you dipshit. If you're an advanced speaker then you're either professor or a linguist.
>>20053521i can't read a book without a dictionary in english and i'm a native speaker of englishalso you don't know japanese
>>20053534or a voice actorand if you're an advanced reader then you're a graduate student or scholar
if youre わたし then your ゲイ
on the one hand anon is fucking retardedon the other hand nhk easy news will not bring you to the intermediate stage, only reading and listening to things that actually interest you will do that
>>20053534>>20053535I'm sorry that you're still a beginner. I know it hurts. Let out your anger, I can take out.>>20053535Especially you, wareya.
>>20053465>>20053521You can pass the N1 without knowing everything the N1 covers. In fact, that's kind of how it's designed. That's how placement tests work.
oh shit we got the name drops
>>20053552Oh, I thought you actually had a point you wanted to defend through logic. Instead you're a low-effort troll. Carry on.
>>20053552wow you're really bad at guessing who people are
>>20053551すごい>>20053557You *can* pass N1 by just rolling a dice as well.
>>20053566That is the exact opposite of an argument. The more you post the stupider you make yourself look.
https://youtu.be/k5t37q1neC4?t=70>N1's can't even read LNs or watch animelol
you guys are supposed to fight with me not e/o
>>20053588I clicked the downvote button but it's not working??
>>20053575That's all I do and I haven't taken a single test.Don't really see the point in paying money for self-affirmation.
nah dude labels are very important to discuss as much as possible because it distracts from the 日本の国の形 shaped 穴 in your 心 lmao
Anyone know if there is a way I can switch between card layouts without having to constantly edit the fields. Sometimes I like to add audio to the front of my core deck cards and remove the kanji so I can try to write them without seeing. But it's tedious to go back and forth all the time.
If I can watch youtube, the news, and anime without any kind of subtitle, play whatever games I want, and read whatever I want as long as it's not academic, do I know Japanese? This is a rhetorical question.
>>20053624this is a theoretical answer
no youre just n1 in everything except writing
>>20053624You know all the Japanese that's worth learning for your situation.I'm at this point and when I occassionally look up a words it's all shit that's not even worth mining.If your situation changes your Japanese needs will change as well, but unless you move to Japan that probably won't happen.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sr7ydpQDbO8Then there is this guy who says you can get fluent level reading and comprehension by reading manga and even got his N1, all self taught, and says you can do it in 2 years easy.
>>20053725If some random dude on Youtube says it takes 2 years, you should be able to do it in 1.
>>20053725>reading mangaCan someone tell him manga isn't reading please
>>20053762I'm honestly trying to do it in a year. So far I'm on track. I used to live there when I was a kid so I have a bit of an edge but now I'm doing 24hour/day extreme studying since I'm jobless and I'm going to set the record for the fastest to get fluent.
>>20053782>I used to live there when I was a kidThen you should be able to do it in half a year.
>>20053782its cheating if you have that kind of a handicapor were you just like a us navy brat
