>make joke with tutor about kanji

Is he encouraging me to practice more (because my kanji are ugly) or expressing surprise/impressed that I'm practicing?

I'll be the first to agree that they're not perfect but I feel like I improved a lot since the first one. I'm not going to argue that my kanji are beautiful because they're not; my main question is in regards to what the Japanese guy means.

I spent 1 year doing nothing but a small amount of anki and some light Tae Kim reading. Took the whole year to finish Core2k pretty much. I then spent 1 year kicking it up a notch and reading hours a day. So I want to say, "I've only really been studying for 1 year" to make myself feel better about however progress I have, because "I can't understand X but I've only been studying for 1 year" sounds better than the same with 2 years. What do you think, everyone?

10,000 words, 2,610 kanji, many books read.
I didn't do listening practice for the entirety of both years though (just started today) so barely being able to follow 実況s on youtube and completely failing to follow the two lines spoken in this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBkMljyAmng makes me feel bad. Ergo, defensively saying "1 year" instead of "2 years". Though, of course, I'm only half serious and don't actually think making a distinction like that is a meaningful thing.

>>135599063
I meant to say that it would point down rather than up not that it should be on the other side. But is it ト anyway though?

To say that anon's 髪 was "completely wrong" is a pretty fucking stupid statement. Let me guess, you've been studying for a few months and know it all? Have you had to read hand written notes in Japanese written by a native before, anon? I'm guessing not, judging by your reaction. Basically people here look for chances to shit on the output of people, just like you've done to that anon.

Not him but it's pretty true. I can read 800 Kanji + but reading Hiragana when my friend write them is already challenging. Kanji differ pretty when written by hand and also native speakers tend to make shortcuts or what one maybe would call a mistake. But native speakers don't like at every stroke at the Kanji, they look rather at the appearance and read it. So his 髪 should be easy to read even though one stroke is not right.

very stupid and wrong guess faggot.

calm down. in your zeal to diss someone on /djt/, you forgot to actually consider the material in question.

the handwritten form in your very own link only reinforces my assertion that he is practicing writing the character incorrectly.

specifically, in anon's "practice" you can see that the three strokes in the upper right are "nestled" inside of the upper left component, a major error that makes his writing look autistic as fuck. hence the reaction of his japanese study partner.
>>
>>135599773
It's a machine TL. Just turn all that machine translation shit off and possibly the word highlighting and furigana too. I usually just copy the text from the texthooker into my browser and look up stuff through that since sometimes chiitrans parses stuff incorrectly and you can't highlight the word you need.
>>
>>135599786
The deck purely exists as a way to inflate my KanjiGrid so my advice in that area is not useful at all. I just put any name into it that I haven't seen used in a word. 慧・けい for instance. (I know words exist on jisho). Will this help me read names? No clue, I just want the kanji.

Or, maybe, after he asked us about our opinion, not correcting him so that he'd keep on reinforcing a bad habit has become shitposting?
Yes, I have only been studying for a month or so, I studied that kanji today and I pointed out the way he was writing it was out of proportion compared to the standard form (not the print one).
Of course manual handwriting is going to look different, but when you learn you use the standard as an example, not deformed varieties.

Obviously he didn't actually look at the guy's handwriting, he just saw an opportunity to righteously blast off at someone, and took it.

Well I used to do translation with him as the host for my blog. He was cool enough to foot that bill and give me pointers as far as working my way into the scanlation scene. If not for that I would have had no money through college.

Commission money like a motherfucker. Now I've pretty much dropped it because I've got a real job that pays about $30 an hour so translating and editing a 30 page book for $50 seems like a waste of my time now.

Now I just need motivation to get back in practice. I can feel it slipping.

What the fuck does ひろっとくわ mean? I get that he's probably saying if he sees her he'll do something but no dictionary or anything is showing anything relevant whatsoever. I've been running into this problem a lot. The past few pages have given me hell and I'm only getting started. Maybe I should wait and come back when I know more.

The "learning Japanese" meme has to stop. Japanese is not a western language and works based on completely different concepts, there is no learning involved.

What you need is a yamato damashii and good intuition. The scribbles(you call them kanji) are just aesthetics and have no semantics value, you are meant to feel the language.

It depends on how much you're learning and how much you've got on your card. I can do ten cards per minute because I'm only memorizing their general meaning and it's all I have on my card. After you count in reps and failed cards I only need 15 minutes or so to do my daily reps, and that's if I'm slow.

I'm already way past the level where wanikani could do any good for me (yet anki never ceases to be a good tool). Trust the word of experience son, it's crap. Complete, undiluted, overpriced crap. Don't buy into the pretty interface, they're selling you something that's worse in every aspect compared to what you can get for free. The only advantage you get is that it saves you the minor hassle of setting up anki. If you think that's worth your money by all means be my guest, buy their crap, but don't come here shilling this shit as if it were any good cause that's just evil behavior. It benefits those conmans at Wanikani and it might harm the progress of serious potential learners.

>>135603731
It is real japanese. You should google it. It's basically real japanese, so often pretty formal and shit, but every sentence has a transcript on another page + at the end of the book is explanation for grammar if you haven't learned it. I think it's in one of the guide folders, I downloaded it some time ago if you are interested

WK is not supposed to BE Anki. Nobody says you can't use Anki at the same time, or use Wk for ten or so levels with the monthly plan then switch to anki once you know SRS and a having a regular review schedule works.

And I'm not "shilling" anything, I just think it's hilarious people think they're "tricking" people by showing them a website that'll learn a large amount of kanji in a respectable amount of time that works for 99% of learners.

People can look at the site and decide for themselves, just please, please, stop shitposting day and night about the ~evils~ of wanikani and do something goddamn productive with your time.

It's not a respectable amount of time, it's ridiculously slow.

It is tricking them because you can get everything they offer in a more customizable format for free, and without the stupid made up radical names which often have nothing to do with what they actually mean, a disservice to the learner who never gets to realize that those radicals are often working as a hint to the meaning of the kanji and will be completely lost in the future when somebody refers to the radicals by their actual names.

Finally, I seriously suspect you are quite literally shilling.

I also tried to just follow along with the recording, but my eyes can't keep up because I'm not used to the vertical text and the fast speed.

I expect to learn a lot by going through it, but it will probably take awhile.

The horizontal lines are also kinda hard but you also get used to this.

I'm just now trying to move on to kanji, and I'm wondering what people's thoughts on KanjiDamage is. The guide says the introduction and certain aspects of the site are wrong; what aspects exactly?

I kinda wanted to try that out because I have no idea what the fuck I'm doing with the Heisig site. It's telling me to type in stories or some shit. I thought the stories would already be there for me to memorize.

>>135606713
KanjiDamage and RTK belong to an entirely new level of garbage that is worse than WaniKani. KanjiDamage is better than RTK though. At least it teaches readings.

>>135606713
KD is also chock full of misinformation. It makes little difference in the end though. What's important is how much time and effort you spend every day.
>>
>>135606713
Just try them all and stick with the method you think it's best. For individual Kanji study, you've got the following options:

>Learn the radicals and learn Kanji through vocab
>Move on to vocab at once

No it isn't. WaniKani is literally shit for retarded normalfag redditors who don't mind spending over $200 on this >>135601218. The recent WK shilling isn't funny.

Something like RTK (which almost everyone just pirates, uses a deck for, and uses koohii stories or their own stories instead of Heisig's shit stories) or KD which actually works for people depending on what they want (usually handwriting and having an easier time with vocab) and they can go at their own pace instead of paying a subscription to be slowed to a crawl?

Getting motivated to consume content is getting increasingly difficult, even for stuff I want to read. Seems like all I end up doing is fapping to a nukige then wasting time for the rest of the day because nothing else holds my interest and is easy enough to be smooth going. I guess this is a weird position. I opened up an ero manga (http://exhentai.org/g/889420/a1efbbbf1f/) and read it without needing to look up a single word, or struggling with any aspect of the grammar. In a position like this, it's hard to know what to do. In the early days, everything is beneficial. But now, I have to seek out hard stuff or just not progress. But, it's hard to motivate myself to consume any of that. I just don't feel the drive. The only really challening content I'm consuming is JAVs and youtube videos, but in those I just let the voices drift through me, catching what I can, it doesn't feel constructive or beneficial at all. どうすればいいのか・・・

a 20mpg car with a 20mph speed limit will get you the same places as a 60mpg car with a 100mph limit. However, one is objectively better in every way. The only people who prefer the 20mpg car are those either ignorant of the 60mpg car's benefits, or those who are too stubborn to change despite knowing their way is less effective.

This may sound like a deceptive analogy. It's not. Wanikani is the same SRS system as anki, but objectively worse in all functionalities. No one who prefers WK has ever been able to offer a single valid reason for doing so, in fact most of their reasons end up revealing their ignorance of anki and how it works. Anti-wani sentiment is so strong because Wani is bad enough to deserve it, and is completely unable to defend itself because it's jus tthat bad in reality.
>>
>>135606803

Alright, well maybe I can help narrow it down.

What would be the best option for someone who has about an hour or two a day to learn Japanese? It's kind of why I didn't like the look of the koohii site, it looked like it over-complicated things.

KanjiDamage promised it would simplify things and give me a concrete base understanding of things, but the guide said it has some misinformation. I didn't want to waste my time with it if it would work against me, which is why I was wondering what type of misinformation it is and how much of an impact it will have on my learning. But apparently, it's not too big a deal from what I'm seeing from other people.

That's about what you'd expect from a site populated by mostly NEETs. Just take anonymous opinions with a grain of salt. You can try WaniKani to see if you like it anyway so all this arguing is pointless.

Anki has more customization options (such as new card amount + review limit) so it is safer than wanikani. Like I said, Wani has no defense.
>>
>>135607007
>What would be the best option for someone who has about an hour or two a day to learn Japanese?
Read Tae Kim, find an Anki deck for vocab you like and do it. Read about japanese in general on the side all the time -- this will clear up a lot of confusion right out of the gate, without having to ask people for help. Kanji study is optional.

Could it be? Talk around the tea pot is all about you, opoooooooo. They say you've joined our ranks and will be training with us. Is that true?

If that is so, you'll need to confirm your account with us.

It's weird because. Well. I shouldn't say this to a new recruit but… "opoooooooo" is a name that gets thrown around a lot in the Crabigator Prophecies. I mean, it could be another opoooooooo but… no, I've said too much.

For now you are only a guppy. Floundering about on the sand, gasping for the radicals, kanji, and vocabulary knowledge you crave. You must learn these. Then you must pass the test to become a full member.

But where to begin? How about where all new recruits must start:

If you haven't already, do your first Lessons. This is where you will learn the foundation of kanji: The radicals. The other monks and I will watch you progress through the first three levels with great interest.

You must also read our sacred texts! Our most holy of books, "The WaniKani Guide," can be found below. Read it or you will never come to understand our beliefs. From the legend of "Spaced Repetition System" to the wise old story of "Mnemonics," you will learn what we are all about.

Read: The WaniKani Guide

Oh, and you must have questions, young guppy! They all do. I understand. Here is another sacred text that will help. Our fore-founders called it "The Frequently Asked Questions." But you can just call it "The FAQ" for short. It is filled with the questions of those that came before you.

Read: The FAQ

That's all for now, little guppy. We'll be watching your progress.

Signed,
Representatives Of The Crabigator

"What does rikaisama say"?

Rikaisama uses kanjidata from http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/kanjidic2/

Kanjidic2 meanings are based on common words that use the kanji.

Rikai calls it "interval" / "space". Interval should be a good definition for 間.

I wish this thread had less shitposters. It is worse than /v/ in here. How are newbies supposed to learn anything when you guys constantly point them the wrong way on purpose?

Yes, countless people if you count "reading plotge and LNs" as having learnt Japanese.

If you listened to djt you'd just end up doing anki reps for 5 hours a day. Ignore everything that isn't in the OP.

If I may interject for a moment, extensive reading and listening is recommended pretty much constantly here, to the point that some people even say read before doing Anki >>135587734 and perhaps never doing Anki. At worst, you've got folks who say always do Anki until fluency/native level (and perhaps beyond), but even they keep it secondary to reading/listening practice.

sorry but you're really not on a good path, you really should start reading ASAP. reading exposes you to a lot of vocab, far more than anki, and is very important to retention. Anyway, if you want actual advice on whether you're doing good or not, post all your stats.

Help correct or improve my translation:

I was going to say you do too many cards a day but dude I progressed more in kore doing like 5-10 cards a day in less than a year
>>
>>135610310
>>135606379

The pdf is there and the audio files are in one of the folders.

Mega is so irritating. Once I click on a folder I can never get back out to the main folder.
>>
>>135610356
You actually posted the second-least important stats.

You are barely doing any cards, holy shit. I think your problem isn't grammar. You just aren't really putting much time or effort into this it seems.

I'm going to assume you don't actually spend 78 seconds per card and that stat is inaccurate.

I now know 100 kanji after studying for like a week.

But the problem is I can't read them, although I know what they are. Am I doing something wrong?

What's the best way to study their readings?

Learn them in vocabulary.
Know 食 means eat, food? Good. Learn the word 食べる.

Core2k/6k optimized deck in the OP for anki is exactly what you want, by the way.
