Hi there.

I am currently living in Japan as an exchange student. I'm here for 10 months and to give you an idea of my level I'm probably around N5 right now. My goal is to get to N2 or N1 by the end of my exchange, and whilst probably sounding unrealistic, I'm hoping I can make a study plan to enable me to do that.

Firstly, I will be doing 4 hours of study a day, currently I'm already doing that but I'm just going through JLPT flash cards and memorizing any kanji and vocabulary I don't know, and learning through that along with the Genki textbooks to supplement. After I complete Genki, what should I do from there on? Is going through JLPT flash cards a legitimate way of studying, or is it not optimal? I will likely be again, supplementing that with different textbooks the more I progress.

Ian Walker
Ian Walker

If you're in Japan just talk to people, watch TV, read whatever and seek interaction.

Textbooks you can do once you're home, if you even need them then. I'd say they are a waste of time in your situation.

It depends on your goals. Are you seeking to pass n1 to help you out academically? If so then study your fucking flash cards. If not then focus on content you enjoy.

I feel it's still not up-to-date
I guess ガイジ slur for "handicapped one" is the trend
During talking about topics that isn't involved with Korea, if you use that term, people would think you as ニュー速+、ヤフコメ tier (dens of netouyo) and ケンモメン (imagine just reversed netouyo, they're as cancerous as netouyo) gather and ruin threads and boards with brainless "arguments".

Jack Rodriguez

I've been in japan for 1.5 months after going here n5-4, id now considering my level n3 but I havent done the test. Some things:

Learning passively mostly happens after you understand all the context around what you don't know. in other words, Language immersion becomes more helpful the higher yoyr level actually is. 2bad4u right now, but what I wanna say is do less flashcards after the first few months and more socialising/watching/reading.

Where you are right now, with your language inadequatacy in your face 24/7, is a good motivator for study, but really, you shouldve arrived more learned. I say this because I should've arrived more learned.

Really try to be social, even if you don't know what the fuck is saying besides gist add to the convo based on the general topic you can discern when others stop talking for longer than a few seconds. This is how actual convo progresses in luls in aby language and makes you more than awkward scenery to peoples lives. They might even appreciate the hapless gaining if he's friendly and not 100% mute.

Good news: the standard for Jap is so low in japan you probably already seem like a master. People will appreciate the effort you make unless their English is good and you're in a pragmatic situation.

Keep a notebook for words you don't know, don't handbrake a convo for it unless it's essential for you to know, but not every time you recognise a word and don't know it. mine from real life, basically.

DONT GIVE UP!!!!!

Luis Anderson

that's not at all an unusual or difficult increase in skill level

Colton Fisher
Colton Fisher

But it's very usual to overestimate yourself.

Mason Bailey
Mason Bailey

Language learning is exponential yeah.
At the start you're just binging on shit you don't understand and you feel going nowhere.
Then you finally know enough to start actually reading, and the more you read the easier it is.
Then before you know it you watch shit without subtitles and can insult a native in a culturally hurtful way with impeccable grammar and a vocabulary that'll induce an inferiority complex in him.

Anyone that's not an english-native probably experienced it since we're in Cred Forums.
I can't wait to do the same in 2ch tbf

No, you're using something else to make fun of them for that
That's not the same as just making fun of them for that

How do they usually kanji their shit up? Same way we do with Japanese IME?

Jacob Jones

Eli Green

Yes, but nobody uses it.

Luke Rogers

pls respond

Benjamin Martin

You get used to the keyboard layout you grew up with and every other one looks like bullshit to you.

I think they just use the standard windows IME in romaji input mode and ignore those hiragana only buttons.

Ian Green

They use IME just like us. I heard some old people use the kana input but these would be the type of people who take 5 minutes to type out a single sentence while looking at their keyboards

How long did you study on this deck? ^^

Gabriel Johnson
Gabriel Johnson

Took me like a month to build up to it but it was just a result of doing my reps in the morning and still wanting to study a bit at night, so I would add 30 or so extra new cards later in the day when I was bored.

Gabriel Wood
Gabriel Wood

好むと好まざると

I know this means "whether you like or not..." but I have two questions about it:

1. How is the second 好 read? The first is obviously konomu, so is the second kou or yoshimi?
2. Why does it mean what it means? まざる means 'to mix' so I can't really figure it out a way for it to make sense in my head.

Appreciate any explanations

Isaac Martinez
Isaac Martinez

1. How is the second 好 read? The first is obviously konomu, so is the second kou or yoshimi?
このまざる

2. Why does it mean what it means? まざる means 'to mix' so I can't really figure it out a way for it to make sense in my head.
No, ~ざる is a verb conjugation.

Julian Hill

Oh I didn't know it had a reading that involded ma. That makes more sense than mix lol

How much do you pay for the charge of cell phone per month?
In Japan, I need to pay for about $90 per month per person.
In family, we usually pay $350-500 monthly.
I think it is too expensive. What do you think?

Why does she hate the kanji that much? I guess there is only one いれる that works here but separating verbs seems like a good idea to me :(

Ha! Read your first novel.

Adam Barnes

Then why are you asking a question that makes you look like a DJT faggot that thinks it's 入れる?

If you know 淹れる you should know you why it's not used in an educational video and shouldn't make boastful statements like

Benjamin Perez
Benjamin Perez

the idea that there's some significantly smaller level of "conversational" vocabulary that you can learn and still understand tv and such is a myth

Jace Howard

Gotta bounce, see you guys tomorrow

Grayson Walker

Maybe 一つのこと(or事柄)には同じ言い方がたくさんある would be more understandable expression

Angel Cox
Angel Cox

I don't think you can handle a high-context language like Japanese, friend. You can clearly see the image is from some Japanese 101 video.

Landon Sullivan
Landon Sullivan

But I don't. I looked up いれる in a dictionary and 4 verbs came up, one of those was 淹れる. I don't know about joyo list or whatever I just want teachers to teach the correct writing of a given word

Brandon Collins

I don't know about joyo list

Leo Mitchell

Yeah but good luck watching anime with that attitude

Aiden Mitchell
Aiden Mitchell

Ah, I made a mistake, 同じ一つのことor事柄にはたくさんの言い方がある(言い方がたくさんある) is correct
And your sentence means there are a lot of same ways to say one thing

Elijah Cooper
Elijah Cooper

いれる is the correct writing for 淹れる. You know, that's what the fucking 常用 list is all about.

Even some kanji in 常用 are getting used less and less. You can see stuff like 皮フ科 or 処方せん in Japan.

Tyler Walker
Tyler Walker

WTF!? I hate our shit service!
I hope the other country service join in, and destroy it.

Grayson Taylor
Grayson Taylor

Still, if you want to mine the word always put the kanji with it.

You'll learn the simplified version for free and you will encounter the unsimplified version sooner or later.

Parker Diaz
Parker Diaz

Yeah, yeah, you ankidrones do what you ankidrones do.

Anthony Rivera

So the purpose of that list is making verbs ambiguous? When I git gud at japanese I'll use as much kanji as possible, it will be literally chinese

Leo Young
Leo Young

See it's only ambiguous if you're a beginner
stop posting and read more

Isaac Jones
Isaac Jones

When you stop being an autistic ankidrone, you'll might read some text in Japanese, learn what context is and learn how to use it to recognize words.

Right now you're peak lol, walking this Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if you were making thread on /r/learnjapanese about how you'll read N1 in a year.

Ethan Garcia
Ethan Garcia

I'll use as much kanji as possible
It's "I'm wiser than anyone in this class" mid school children or classic novelists tier behave.

John Phillips

It'll pay off once I play my first chuuni game and encounter stuff like 蠱毒 and 仇 on a regular basis.

you guys are all learning Japanese the wrong way!
lmao you're literally fucking stupid for asking a question I know the answer to
nobody except me is allowed to try to answer people's questions since I'm the smartest
dude why don't you just understand Japanese in a naturalistic, native-like way like me? No, that's not natural enough, you're thinking the wrong way, try thinking like me instead

I'm having trouble understanding kanji for some reason. in 日本。The first kanji stands for ni right? Looking it up though most places only show it as meaning nichi, jitsu, hi, -bi, and -ka. I believe. So how does it mean ni? On top of that why is the nichi reading in katakana? Isn't nichi hiragana?

Not really sorry, at this moment I just go by the related videos.

There was this channel I REALLY liked but she recently made it private and now I can't watch any of them. She was called Gemmini or something like that. Her channel had unusual stuff like taking care of you and feeding you while you had a fever, going to see the fireworks together, and all other kinds of sweet roleplay ASMR, and her voice was lovely. Fuck.

I hope not but you never know huh. She's actually one of my favorites, her name is Yuzuki Akari. twitter.com/yuzukiakari
and that video is the only ecchi ASMR video I've found of her. The rest are the usual cuddly stuff like ear cleaning and she has some examples on her personal YT channel. I think she does doujin voice work too.

Look here kiddo, I'm drop some knowledge bombs on you Nama-sensei style.

The only reason you're looking for an easy way is so that you won't have your own inability to blame when you inevitably fail.

Grayson Collins

expression

I fill other with images here and then when it's easier or helps with retention. Of course everything but expression can be empty.
Sometimes I just put the reading and an image, for example involving food or terms that have a too lengthy translation like 絶対領域.

Yes. Let's say you come across 確認 while reading a manga and you only know the first kanji. Instead of adding 認 to your mining deck, add 確認.

Most podcasts that are intended for learners are 80% English which makes them pure garbage. You'd be better off listening to people talking at a real pace where even if you can't understand shit you can pick out the key grammar words like それで、だから、 and get used to the rhythm and intonation of real japanese speech, as well as the aiduchi and such.

Although maybe higher levels of japanesepod are mostly Japanese

Of course you can do that, much like how you don't need to do Core at all and can just pick it up from reading instead. But Anki is more efficient for most people.

Hunter Bailey
Hunter Bailey

Make cards from all the Core notes with the sentence audio on the front and the sentence on the back. Watch all the anime with timed subtitles that you can, do subs2srs.
Watch all the nihongonomori videos with the goal of understanding everything they say - the grammar they are covering is just providing lots of context to make the rest of the listening easier, but you'll learn just as much by trying to understand everything else that is said.

Reading helps in introducing rarer vocabulary faster and getting you more used to long sentences, but reading has a relatively minor impact on your listening skill. You can get good at reading and still be ass at listening. But if you are capable of listening to real japanese, and didn't avoid kanji or some stupid shit, then you will be able to at least decently read japanese.

Jaxon Edwards
Jaxon Edwards

You can pick up a lot of them naturally, but a little bit of anki goes a long way. If you just add things that have new kanji or strange readings, it will help you a lot. You can pick up obvious shit like 聖水 easily through reading but it's a lot harder for 蝙蝠

勉強 is 'study' as a noun. To make it an action, a verb you have to do it, so you have to say する

I know 'study' us usually used as a verb in english, but you can not equate words between languages, not just meaning but also part of speech, frequency, politeness, gender, context

I think that community service projects are great, but private, for-profit companies asking for volunteers to complete work on projects which the company will then use for profit just seems corrupt. That's not the realm of community service. Pay your workers a fair wage for their labor, Valve.

Plus there's good dramas that aren't scifi or fantasy shit but aren't moege either.

There's a lot of cute and crazy manga and anime that is never translated, and I would love to read / watch that, but is it really worth it? Putting so many hours into learning Japanese just so I can read and watch some cartoons? I already have 150 manga books and I've read like 7 of them. Bought some because they were about bees and I love bees, but fuck there's a lot of kanji because it's some old school medieval themed manga or something. When am I ever going to learn enough to be able to read everything comfortable?

The culture and the country? I mean, Japan is beautiful and they make some bomb ass food, but seriously, fuck the culture and the country as a whole. Corrupt cops, overwork, politicians not giving a fuck about children, lack of care about other people, nobody gives a fuck about mental illnesses, everything is centered around beer, cigarettes and yakiniku, school is expensive, the tap water tastes like chlorinated water straight out of the public swimming pool, people are too fake, taxi drivers drive like shit, prostitution is ridiculously common, school kids are basically slaves, Japan is so far behind when it comes to most aspects of technology.... sure, they are good at making things that beep and move and light up, but actual helpful, useful things like... oh, I don't know, fucking credit card readers in shops?

I was thinking this, but I'm not sure about using そんな、あんな、こんな, etc, because they seem to point to an arbitrary amount instead of simply emphasizing it, if that makes any sense,

I'm not trying to specify an already established amount, just bring attention to the amount itself.

In English, when you say "Why is it *that* cold", "Why are you *that* tall", etc, you are calling attention to an already established amount, rather than just calling attention to said amount in the first place.

I realize I may be overanalyzing this, which is why I asked in the first place. . .just wondering if there's another way of saying this.

Every single one I've ever seen, bar Blue Blazes and 火花: Sparks are all literally shit.

Question for fluent speakers. How did you get used to listening to Japanese conversations? While I'm practicing my listening skills, I notice people talk way too fast for me to recognize a simple word/sentence anyone can easily notice.

Truth be told though, I'm pretty fluent in reading, but listening is still kind of tough for me, as I've never been to japan.

Jayden Myers
Jayden Myers

なげええええええ instead of 長い for instance.

I never even bothered trying to get an invite, I can't maintain a decent ratio since UL'ing in Japan is dangerous.

Thanks. I had assumed there was a giant Mega archive similar to the DJT resources/sticky.

The original GTO is great, of course. I hated Gokusen in comparison, but it's quite popular too.
My favorites are IWGP and 人にやさしく. Definitely try IWGP, it's cool as hell in a way I didn't know Japan could manage.
I recently started watching ディアスポリス (many parts were filmed in my neighborhood so I'm a little biased) in anticipation of the new movie, but it's incredible - doesn't resemble any sort of drama I've seen before.

Depending on how much of a shit otaku you are, you might like [email protected], but I hated it. Blue Blazes fans might like it though.

I personally love tokusatsu and /m/ shit, so things like Sukeban Deka or Jetman are really fun in a cheesy sort of way.

I'm not fluent but one of the best ways you can learn to parse words is by trying to mimic or repeat what others say.

It may seem unnatural but it affords you time to comprehend the sentence, reinforces natural language, and doesn't seem too strange since quoting is quite common in Japanese + you're a foreigner anyways.
It's what we teach kids who want to speak English in foreign countries to do when they can't understand spoken language too.

Imagine if they were told something like ?
Just go watch more Spongebob, dude.

Not all great eroge are also notable. You should be checking EGS, seeing what people say about certain games and asking others for recommendations based on what exactly you're looking for.

You also need to realize that you'll never read a game like Albatross or Dies as well and fluently as a native. No amount of realistic preparation is going to be enough for you to tackle one of those games perfectly in every single aspect, so you need to just make the most of your experience after having tackled a few dozen games already.

Challenge yourself with stuff you like reading and keep at it! Don't be an ankidroid like most of DJT. Balance is key.

Cameron Cruz

I don't think anyone is going to answer that they're fluent in a language as complex as Japanese, that's a bit ridiculous expectations.

I'm just giving my experience based off years of actual immersion within the culture.

Not sure where you're getting the "kids learn like adults" line from though.
A kid is anyone under 18 - I'm not expecting a six year old to spend a month alone in a homestay and be able to utilize the language skills necessary to shadow language to reinforce learning. Why would you even imagine a strawman like that?

I'm not sure if this is really true. I know several ESLs who have managed to read books like Ulysses and Gravity's Rainbow without much trouble, and I doubt any VN is anywhere near such novels in terms of difficulty.

Hi noob shitter here.

I'm following the guide in the OP, thanks to this thread I got through hiragana and katakana.

5 years ago I tried to do RtK and it was okay but I didn't really like the mnemonics.

What's my next best move here? Do most people here skip doin Rtk/KanjiDamage and go straight into vocab (gonna do Core2K/6K) or should I try one of the above or something else? I don't mind the grind I just want to be efficient.

Thanks in advance

Back when I first did it I used to think I wnated to write but I can't think of any real reason why I would want to now. I guess I'll just do vocab, fuck it. If the more complex characters fuck me up I'll try KanjiDamage because RtK gives me PTSD.

Thanks you're right. I think I'll just do vocab, fuck the mnemonics and kanji by keyword shit.

There was an insufferable Finfag who used to post constantly who suddenly stopped posting when this imouto faggot showed up, and their posting times are the same. For a little while the Finfag would post every now and then but when he would post, the imouto fag oddly didn't post that thread. Now he is just roleplaying full time, aside taking breaks to samefag, like here

Finnish guy who spammed Aoba for a long time claims to have learned through anime and claims to be fluent (but shitty at kanji and reading)

Imouto types in mostly kana

Thus the meme was born that they were the same. But of course Fin claims to be around N3 level and imouto read some intentionally obscure kobun-style rune shit that someone posted at some point, and is usually on east asia time zone schedule

There were other anons who could read that, because there were dozens of google results with people asking how that specific was read.

Also overlaps with Australian timezones, and Australia has a huge amount of Chinese and Chinese nationals. I think /pol/tards have a phrase for this coincidence, something about making you ponder.
