Is 濡れて帰って an expression for getting wet when going home during the rain? I don't think the て is being used to form a sequence of actions here. Context is the character is waiting under the rain.
>>
>>136168117
You can indeed use the te form of verbs to express a sequence of events
>>
>>136168423
Yes, I know that. But it's really the form used in the panel? I felt it was more like and expression or something.
>>
>>136168117
て-form is often to express "do A while doing B" rather than "do A after doing B".

For example, バケツを持ってきてください. Forget that 持ってくる has its own entry in the dictionary and think about how it's composed for a second. You're holding the bucket 'while' you're coming towards me, hence you're bringing it to me.

Another example, 自信を持って行きましょう. You're not going to have confidence and then go, you're going to go with confidence. They're simultaneous.

So 濡れて帰る is going home/getting home wet
>>
>>136168117

What does the ~てないと means there?
>>
>>136168627
I just realized 持っていく is also on the dictionary. Here's another example so you won't doubt be.

頭がじんじんして眠れない

In this cause it's indicating cause more than anything, but they're also not a sequence of actions, they're simultaneous.

I want make you a simple question
Let's suppose for the sake of this question that you're a person looking for a Japanese tutor

What would you prefer?
http://strawpoll.me/6547887

This is just my opinion, but I would personally pick one that is native in my language and is fluent in Japanese because he has walked on the same road as I do, and likely would share the same perspective that I did when facing the same difficulties I did when learning.

But what do you think?
>>
>>136175660
Someone who doesn't rape you when they come over to your house.
>>
>>136175660
An actual nip is far more likely to know all the rules and exceptions you could ever want. They'll be able to tell you instantly if a sentence sounds awkward.

It's a question of someone with 20-40 years of experience vs 3-20 years of experience. You're always going to pick the native unless you're braindead.
>>
>>136175660
You should've put captcha on the poll
>>
>>136175794
It's all right, the people have spoken.
>>
>>136175771
>An actual nip is far more likely to know all the rules and exceptions you could ever want.
Sounds like bullshit. Native speakers didn't need rules, they learned their language naturally without studying grammar. The second sentence is definitely correct, though.
>>
>>136175771
Yeah, but knowing the language and being able to teach it in a foreign language is also a thing to think about.

Understanding the perspective of who is learning is also important. He could know all the theory, but if he can't explain it to you or make you understand it, then it's useless.

That's what I think at least.
>>
>>136175882
This, I couldn't teach you jack shit about my language.

Though you would want your teacher to have lived in the country for a least a few years.
>>
>>136175882
You don't need understanding for shit like "don't use X here". Languages aren't complex. The reasoning for something doesn't matter, you just need to know what's correct and what isn't.

It's like trying to explain why we "post" messages. You could go into the history of fucking bulletin boards, or you could just say "because we fucking do, cunt".
>>
>>136175660
I'd pick whoever has a very good language and teaching skills on both languages.

It really doesn't matter if it's a native or not, if the fag can't teach shit in English, then there's no point in having a native

If both have good teaching skills, then I think it really doesn't matter. People will always pick the native because they think it automatically makes them a better teacher though

But that's not true.
>>
>>136175880
>they learned their language naturally without studying grammar.
What?
>>
>>136176163
Maybe he's an American that didn't study grammar in school and now projecting on the rest of the world?
>>
>>136176067
Uhm, yeah it does?

Depending on what level of fluency you're shooting for.
If you want to be fluent enough to write and compose, you WILL need more than "this is right because this is right", you will need the reasoning behind sentence formation.

I mean, what you're saying is fine if you're going to just learn something for reading? But what you're saying doesn't hold when you try to compose more complicated sentences

Or when you try to compose thoughts you've never read or composed before.

>>136176163
Yeah, this is true.
You learn your native language on your own when you're a kid, 7 years old don't speak their native language because they were reading language books back when they were children

They go to school though, to understand better their language and understand what's behind each sentence, how it works, and how to better compose
>>
>>136174984
なんだそんな簡単なことだったのかちくしょう 
ありがとう妹よ
>>
>>136176163
I never learned English grammar.
>>
>>136175882
One thing you're forgetting is that one guy had 15 odd years of schooling in, and about that language. They're far more likely to have encountered the exact explanation for any weird quirks that a learner breezing through the language in a few years wouldn't have the time to bother with, they'd just memorise it as an exception.

>>136176281
The more you read, the more you encounter correct grammar, and the better equipped you are to formulate sentences. The idea that someone could read perfectly but be unable to form basic sentences is laughable.
>>
>>136168049
Why?
>>
>>136176416
Because only losers take that test.
>>
>>136176163
what about this don't you get? Unless you had severe autism(which I guess isn't entirely unlikely) you should have been able to form sentences and "use" grammar years before you ever actually went to school and "learned" it.
>>
>>136176396
>The idea that someone could read perfectly but be unable to form basic sentences is laughable.
That is actually very common.
I can't emphasize enough how common this is actually.

You cannot assume because someone can read, they possess the same vocabulary or grammar skills to properly formulate sentences.

I know several people who can read Japanese, but they wouldn't stand a chance in an argument against natives, or an argument in Japanese for that matter.

But I'm gonna ask

Does common sense among non-fluents is that natives = better teachers automatically than non-natives?
>>
>>136176501
How is this possible? Why can't I do that with Japanese?
>>
The "learn grammar" meme never gets old. Fucking dumbshit ESLs, man.
>>
>>136176584
Anglos are the ones who can't handle basic grammar without Tae Kim shoving states of being down their throats.

>>
>>136176548
Kids are just good at learning by osmosis.
>>
>>136176548
Yeah but it takes 10 years for a 10yo to get to his level. If you study diligently you could reach that level in 2 years.
It's just that kids are learning language without knowing they are. They also encounter it every day, the whole day.
Kids also aren't afraid of making mistakes. Nobody cares if a 3yo speaks like a 3yo, but I don't see adults doing that.
>>
>>136176548
I am fluent in Japanese and I haven't studied a lick of grammar.

>>136176909
Adding to what he said.

They also have a _need_ to communicate. You don't really have that much of a need to speak japanese because if you get hungry you can go to the store and talk to the clerk in english.

I'd say moving to japan would simulate that environment, but from what I've heard most japanese people would rather brush up on their english skills talking to you rather than talk to you in japanese, and most signs/newspapers and things have english versions there too. So that's not a good idea.
>>
The question really should've been whether the native/english fluent is a good teacher or not

I think that's more important
Can you make the guy understand the crap you're teaching him?
Being native or not comes after this.
>>
>>136177184
The problem with Japanese is that kanji makes it harder to learn that way.
I learned English just from video games and shitposting, but I already knew the alphabet.

>>136177274
well I thought we were just talking about the spoken language.

I guess kids get most of the writing system learned in school.

There's also the fact that I think a lost of second language learning goes
>word in second language -> equivalent in first language -> understanding
whereas a child learning their first language would just have
>word -> understanding
So the words are associated strongly with the concepts and their experiences with it. Whereas my experiences with every word is just about the same right now, and Anki screen. That doesn't exactly make each word uniquely memorable.
>>
>>136177184
I get a little insulted when nips completely disregard my attempt to speak japanese with them. Is it really so bad that they'd rather speak poor english than listen to me butcher their language or they generally feel like they didn't take a trip to the states to hear some japanophile prattle about how great nippon is in 4th grade japanese. It's so discouraging, I just can't....
>>
>>136177435
this is why you use a J-J dictionary
>>
>>136176548
But you can
>>
>>136177258
Yeah, but I guess that's just common sense

People will instantly pick the native over a non-native as they will associate his language skills with his teaching skills.

That's really a dumb thing to do though.

>>136177473
Yeah, it's very annoying for them, no offense.
I'd play DQ10 around and I'd be in a party with other nips, whenever we found a korean people would just ask me to ask him if he spoke English so he'd stop annoying the party.

If you can use it but some nuiances pop up every now and then they still deal with it or just ignore it, but if you're speaking baby talk level they get really annoyed.
>>
>>136177473
I heard a completely different experience from someone.
He also heard that nips would attempt to speak English to him, but when he went there hardly anyone actually did.

Even so, you can know the dictionary definition of a word and still not have a concrete feel for it. Like words you've only seen a few times in writing, you can recognize them but probably wouldn't feel comfortable using them in a conversation.
>>
Native is obviously superior. How is this even a question? You can learn all of the grammar and technical stuff a tutor can teach you on your own. What a native can provide to you is not something easily found. Its value is not even comparable.

No, the sole merit of having a tutor is that you have somebody to help you address the problems which are particular to you.

>>136177473

I think you would ideally have one of each. One person who has the same native language as you to guide you through the steps he once took himself and one Japanese native speaker to serve you as a reliable reference, someone who can look at you speaking or writing and quickly point out where you're sounding unnatural and how to do it more naturally.

I've studied with a native for a year. It was a waste of time. Whenever I asked "Why is it like this?" "It's just how it is/It's an exception." "How does this work?" "It just works/It's an exception." "Can we learn the dictionary form?" "No, we are sticking to the book." 3 days into Tae Kim I got all my questions answered and I finally got some grasp of grammar. 3 days of Tae Kim > 1 year studying with a native.

But I guess it depends on person to person. If you can find someone that will teach you the Moon way, it's great. If you find someone who will teach you the "It's an exception." way, you're better off studying yourself.
>>
why do some nips wear shirts with random English words on them?

Japs are retarded and need 18 years just to learn to read their own language at a basic level. People who think learning Japanese from a native is a good idea may just be mentally defective.

>>136178646
Your particular experience is not a sufficient parameter. It's obvious that there are good and bad tutors, native or non-native.

If you pay close attention though, you'll see that all of those questions you mentioned fall under the "grammar and technical stuff a tutor can teach you", which I said you can learn by yourself already. I was implying the advantages of a native tutor lie beyond that. If he's just going to follow a book, or any static curriculum, he's really as good as a non-native tutor. Possibly worse because there's a good chance you can't communicate as well with him.

Your tutor sucked partly because you didn't take advantage of the fact that he was a native. You didn't use him as a model to be copied, which is the best way a native can help you. That's understandable though, because most of that advantage is only available for a more advanced learner.

But that's completely irrelevant to that discussion, and you need to understand that different people learn through different ways than you do.

>If he's just going to follow a book, or any static curriculum, he's really as good as a non-native tutor. Possibly worse because there's a good chance you can't communicate as well with him.

It was pretty much like this. And also:

>Your tutor sucked partly because you didn't take advantage of the fact that he was a native. You didn't use him as a model to be copied, which is the best way a native can help you. That's understandable though, because most of that advantage is only available for a more advanced learner.

While I was a beginner back then, I did ask some things I couldn't find anywhere else, and the reply was almost always "We'll learn that later." "Now's not the time to learn that."
You're right about saying that a native can immensely help you, but I still wanted to warn anons not to rely on them for everything, or not study with them if they were like mine. I was amazed at how Tae Kim knew what people like me were taught incorrectly, such as the order of words in a sentence and the difference between だ and です.I bought his book just as a thank you for making me believe grammar can be studied again
>>
>>136179200
The native tutor can be as good as a non-native one. In regards to being a teacher who'll guide you through a course they're both on pretty similar ground. However, the native has the advantage of being a freaking native on top of being possibly as good as any non-native tutor. Unless you have a reason to believe native tutors are on average worse teachers than non-native tutors, then natives are clearly the preferable choice.

>>136179080
Ignore >>136179374. What happened is that they used the masu-stem which can act like the te-form when connecting clauses like that. It's often used in written language.
>>
>>136179740
if you replace the comma for ます, the sentence does not make sense

>空を見上げます、目をつぶりました

You have to use the te form to connect both so it implies that you do the first action, and then the other
What's there is て form even though it seems like a contraction of the ます form

>if you replace the comma for ます, the sentence does not make sense
Which is why you use just the masu-stem and not masu form. Saying that it's the て-form without a て is just a more confusing way of putting it. Specially because that's not even quite true for other conjugations, e.g. 目をつぶり, 深呼吸をしました. There is no り in the て-form of つぶる.
>>
>>136180504
Yeah I was just answering his question
He said why can't we use the て form there, which I said it is using the て form, just differently

I guess saying they "hid it" makes it confusing.
So to answer his question properly, there's a form that you remove the masu from the conjugation, which is what happened
見上げます -> 見上げ

but when you write 見上げ in a sentence it works as 見上げて
You can use that not freely, but when you want to connect more thoughts
I'd say it's best to see examples of this type and see how it's used so you get the hang of it

Dude who got the interview here by mentioning Japanese here, since people were asking me to update.

The interviewer (not the HR lady that I talked to on the phone who sounded really enthused) just gave me a blank stare throughout the interview, and then told me that he was going to interview two more people and then decide, which is interview talk for "don't hold your breath".

I've held jobs in the past, though (enough to understand how this works), and I'd kinda pin this one him. He was like a wall, not making any real movement to engage me. No mention of Japanese, obviously. He was also really disorganized, more so than any other person who's ever interviewed me that I can remember. I think that he was distracted, since I had to wait 30 minutes in his office for him to finally get to the interview. Whatever. There's a very good chance that the person who interviews you is going to be your immediate boss, and I don't want to work under a guy like that, anyways.

So check this out, there was a guy who used to (and maybe still does?) frequent this thread. His "study" method was to read manga, VN, and books, for his own personal enjoyment. A few years in, he took the JLPT N1 just for fun and scored 176/180. That is to say, he ACED the test without specifically studying for it.

On the other hand, there's several youtube blogshitters and guys on reddit crying about how "the JLPT doesn't indicate your Japanese skill", and how even though they passed N1, they still can't communicate or read well, etc. (Note: passing only requires a 55%)

If you learn Japanese by learning to read Japanese, the JLPT will be easy.

If you "learn Japanese" by studying for the JLPT, both Japanese and the JLPT will be hard.

Well yeah the logic is simple.
A: The best way to learn a language is to exposure yourself to it via reading and listening.
B: The JLPT tests knowledge of the Japanese language.
A ↔ B = Reading and listening will result in passing the JLPT test.

The only outside factors to consider is that you need to diversify the subjects of what you read, of course.

Sure, but the guy has a one year deadline to prepare for the test, and he's not doing it just to access his skill. In that case it would help to spare some time to prepare specifically for it, e.g. learning the vocabulary that will be required.

For kindle users who use the vocabulary builder to remember lookups: Here's my method to mine words in case anyone wants it:

1. Connect via USB cable to computer
2. Copy ~\system\vocabulary\vocab.db to your local drive
3. Open using DB Browser for SQLite
4. Browse Data choosing "Lookups" by table and sort by timestamp
5. Copy and paste the words you don't know into notepad after that use rikaisama/epwing2anki

Once I get off my ass I might write a script to, well, actually automate this.

Once you hit an intermediate-ish level, new kanji really won't be a problem because 99% of what you see (seriously) will be the same 2,000-some. I can read for hours and not see a new kanji. Struggling with seeing new kanji when reading is frankly kind of a "beginner problem" though I don't like to put it that way.
Vocabulary is naturally a bigger issue but it gets to the point where you can understand sentences long before you know every word in every sentence, when you know all but 1 word in a sentence you can generally understand what the sentence is conveying even if you don't know that 1 word is, through context, grammar, and simple guessing. Of course, looking up words is always a good thing, but if you're playing just for fun you can be lazy and still follow the game without too many issues (excluding infodumps which tend to contain high densities of unknown vocab)
TL;DR in the intermediate level you can read and play Japanese games for fun without worrying about either kanji or necessarily vocabulary.

Radical search. It's not really that difficult to look at a list of radicals and figure out which of them are in the kanji you saw. You can always try drawing it on some site which supports this kind of search too. It works much more often than not.

Most cases will involve two or more kanji, at least one of which you'll know.

Let's say you don't know 曳 in 曳光弾. Just type *光弾 into jisho, and you'll have your answer very quickly.

Well then be a big boy and show your reasoning for this conclusion. Rhetoric/argument is based on logical constructs, much like balancing an equation and if you want to be taken seriously you can't go and say "x=5 because I said so".

I started the entire conversion in the last thread by invoking "do you even know how many /orderings/ there are", and no, I certainly was not just talking about whatever special set of orderings you yourself know of. I specifically had this ordering on my mind. I don't know how good it was over 1k words in but before my hard drive crashed I got 300-400 words in (I don't use sync) and they were all extremely relevant basic words.

One of these days, I'll work up the courage to actually speak Japanese.

I'm sure that most of them wouldn't give a learner shit, though. I've had early-level ESLs approach me, and my thought is that it's nice that they're learning English instead of isolating themselves in their little foreign parts of town.

Nah, I can understand parts of their conversations where they talk among themselves. Except for the one that actually is staffed by Koreans, where I can't understand a thing that they're saying when they talk among themselves.

There are actually a fair amount of Japanese people out here. They ARE greatly outnumbered by Chinese and Koreans, but they're significant enough that written information deemed important enough to be given bilingually tend to include Japanese alongside Chinese and Korean.


>>136192686

I don't care if people know that I like anime and Japanese games. Shit, if they ask, or if it becomes relevant to the situation, I'll tell them.

>村国男依らが率いる大海人皇子(天武天皇)側の軍は、数万の兵力でこのとき琵琶湖東岸を西進していた。
>At this time, the army of Prince Oama (Emperor Tenmu), led by MURAKUNI no Oyori with tens of thousands of soldiers, was heading west along the east coast of Lake Biwa.
"を西進する" does apparently mean to head west along, so possibly an error.

A kimono wearing otaku social studies professor and hikikomori was teaching a class on Asian History.

"Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Emperor Akihito and accept that that the Japanese are the most highly-evolved human beings that the world has ever known."

At this moment, a sagacious, filial, scholar-gentleman who has scored ahead of 150,000 students in the Civil Service Exams and understood the full extent of the barbarity of those living outside Zhongguo held up a copy of the Nihon Shoki.

"What are the characters written upon the pages of the Nihon Shoki?"

The arrogant professor smirked, tightened his hachimaki, and smugly replied "Kanji, you baka."

"True, Kanji, which loosely translates into "Han characters." To be precise the Nihon Shoki is written in Guwen, which is Classical Chinese script. If the Japanese are indeed perfect human beings then they would have come up with their own culture & civilization as opposed to just borrowing from the Chinese or from anyone else."

The Professor was visibly shaken and dropped his calligraphy brush and copy of CLAMP's Cardcaptor Sakura. He stormed out of the room and tried to commit seppuku like in his animes.

The students applauded with a big "wansui!" and all signed up with the Popular Uprising that day and declared that the scholar-gentleman has the Mandate of Heaven. A dragon named "All Under Heaven" flew into the room and coiled around the Chinese flag and magically turned it yellow. The Analects was read several times, and the Jade Emperor himself showed up and enacted territorial seizures of disputed territories around the country.

The professor lost his tenure and was fired the next day. He died of complications caused by an erroneous performance of the seppuku ritual and went to Diyu, where he is tried, found guilty, and punished by the Ten Yama Kings of Diyu.

If I've done Tae Kim, how far into the Core 6k should I go before starting to read something?
>>
>>136201588
you could start any time you want.
>>
>>136201588
You should read regardless of how far in you are. But below 1k it's pretty painful
>>
>>136201588

You can start whenever, though how well it'll go depends on your definition of "done Tae Kim". The difference between reading through it so that you can say you've done it and actually remembering what you read in a way that allows you to apply the knowledge is pretty sizeable.

If you haven't been studying either kanji or vocabulary at all until now (which would be a mistake) then you're in for a rough time, in that case you might need to core up for a while first but don't wait forever until you start reading.

What does "read Japanese" even mean anyway? That you can read something using a texthooker and jisho?
>>

It means reading Japanese, how much assistance you need while doing it depends on you.

I'm not sure what the point you're trying to go for here is exactly, are you just arguing about the semantics of the word "reading"?

Reading is finding text and trying to understand what it says to the best of your ability, it's not a difficult concept anon.
>>
>they use slang and i can't understand the sentence

i should have been born in japan
>>
>>136203169
For me, it's the stage where whenever I feel the urge to read something, I can just go right ahead and download/buy it without considering its difficulty first.
>>
>>136203682

Then you wouldn't understand English instead, you're better off this way around.

>>136203705

All mine had was Spanish/German/French.

I've got two noob questions that I would appreciate help with. After just learning Hiragana, I started casually flicking through Genki 1 and noticed for Konnichiwa, the wa sound is written with は instead of わ and it's the same for Konbanwa, again ending in は. This has left me completely confused so could someone please explain to me what's up with that.

Secondly, I'm struggling with pronounciation in certain situations with new words. For example, upon seeing おそい I pronounced it in my head as oh-so-ee but seing the Romaji Osoi I prounounced it in my head as oh-soy. I don't have this problem with words like です etc. because I'm already familiar with them.

So my question is, how do you know you have the correct pronounciation? Is it just a matter of practice and getting used to the conventions?
>>
>>136205011

How exactly is having Japanese classes in your high school a good thing? At best it's completely inconsequential.

It was written as a joke. It's not a real textbook.

本題 素直は危険

刀太と話をしてるとうっかり内心が漏れるのではないか、と夏凜が我慢してると
刀太はいくつか夏凜の好きなところを挙げていく中に「おっぱいがでかい」
思わず顔面にバケツ投げつけて逃げ出す夏凜だが
時間いっぱいまで応戦して凌ぎ切ろうとしたのが仇になり全裸パンチの餌食に
なおも迫ろうとする刀太に対し、陥落寸前……

のところで雪姫登場
じつは自白剤入りのお菓子は箱入りの8個だけ
10個入りケースのうち、夏凜が食べたのは外に出してあった"ハズレ"だった
では今までのあれは何だったのか……夏凜はお目目ぐるぐる顔真っ赤、そして暴走
■夏凜の限界突破…。

It's fucking worthless for the most part and explains fuck all about the language. If you are a native English speaker you aren't going to learn a vastly different language like Japanese without explanation of what's going on in the sentences. The only thing it has going for it is the hearing practice.
