Cornucopia of Resources / Guide (read Guide before asking questions):
Time spent shitposting is time spent not studying. If you're about to engage in a silly argument or off-topic discussion, close the thread instead. Use your time productively!
Persistence is the key to success. You CAN learn Japanese!
Remember, work, well done, does good to the man who does it. It makes him a better man.
I want to progress but I don't feel like it
I just keep doing my anki reps and maybe a few times a week read some pages of yotsubato tier easy Japanese
I can't even find any new masturbation material I want to translate, and when I do I usually just figure out what they are saying while doing the dirty things which are often simple one liners
To the people in the last thread talking about encodings
Why change the encoding? I'm pretty sure the best settings are to just put it on unicode and leave it there, but set the auto-detect to Japanese, then you should never have to mess with it again and I think even shift-jis pages, or whatever, will still display properly
An important part of using porn for practice is to actually ensure that you're reading each line fully, in the heat of the moment like you said it's easy to just skip and mainly interpret from context and small lines but that genuinely won't help much at all, since it'll just be sticking to what you know and not expanding your knowledge.
As for finding masturbation material, just hang around nukige/h-game threads (or just browse straight from VNDB or dlsite) and you should find PLENTY.
Reading is pretty much 100% essential so I can only say that you are very right in being troubled because not reading is pretty bad.
Relaxing is important, of course, but it will become a detriment to your life if your relaxation begins to interfere with personal growth, i.e. learning Japanese. Relaxation is fine, but so is stress at times. Life's not all about feeling sad, but it's also not all about feeling happy.
if you dont struggle you dont improve, just do your reps and read, talk. listen. you'll improve slowly.
fuck feeling like doing it, just do it. imagine if some one forced you to read at gunpoint.
There are lots of shades to happiness. There's the happiness of doing cocaine. The happiness of raising a good child. The happiness of eating an entire pie. The happiness of masturbating all day, eating an entire pie, and watching cartoons all day. The happiness of a cold drink of water after a hard day's work. There's degrees and shades of happiness, anon, and those who over-value relaxation and overindulge on hedonism are not like to experience many of them.
*This* is a good post, because you're being constructive. The main thing I'm worried (so to speak) about here is >>133387668 continuing to not read which will lead to fuck-all progress, in this case relaxation is akin to eating pie all day in that it only harms you. He doesn't need to stress but at the same time, taking it easy and ignoring the problem is also not good.
Okay he might struggle he might really dread doing this, but if he sticks to it, and doesn't stop, slowly and gradually makes progress, he will not regret the time he put into it. he will only regret it if he stops or half asses it.
Massive exposure to enjoyable and compelling native content
Why don't you just download the PDF in >>133386850 ? I have the same problem as you, but it loads fine in firefox's PDF viewer. The version on the page you're looking at is outdated for everything after the basic volume anyways.
Did that still not working, downloaded the pdf im fine now.
Downloaded the PDF, gotta be mediafire that fucks something up.
Thanks anyway guys.
Reposting the modified python script for the anon who requested it in the previous thread:
Sorry it took so long. Had to wait for some free time at work. Here's the revised script: https://www.sendspace.com/file/st5nnn
I added some comments to hopefully make the parameters more obvious. I've never used Anki so I can't guarantee I interpreted it correctly.
Anyway, I added a way to do two-stage simulations. It's commented in the code, but first make sure two_stage is set to True, then new_stage_start is the day you want the card number to change, and new_stage_max_cards is the new number of cards per day. To return to the original functionality of the script, just set two_stage to False. It works with Python 2 and 3.
Get Tae kim or genki for grammar or whatever suits you.
Grab a Anki deck - start mining vocab.
Manga of your choice and start "reading", something with a good english translation (just for the beginning) don't let it become a habit/crutch.
It will feel like you learned nothing in the first month'
At some point you soldier through or you drop the language up to you.
Anon's Learn Japanese for Dummies.
WARNING: Learning Japanese can be an extremely traumatic experience that may lead to alcoholism, depression, among other disorders. If you are not confident in your ability to persist through the same boring routine for at least an hour every single day for months with no results to show for it give up now.
Learn the kana. (Use realkana. IT MAKES LEARNING EASY!)
Get an anki deck. (Kanji deck or Vocab deck, it doesn't really make much of a difference. Ignore the faggots on DJT who argue every day about it, they're bored, lazy people with nothing better to do.)
Do your reps. Do the fucking reps. Don't skip out on this.
Also do Tae Kim.
Read a lot. Watch anime.
That's all, you are ready to shitpost on DJT.
I just saw that 囀る was an N1 kanji, does anyone have a list of all 表外 on the N1? Could be neat to see.
Hence the important of reading a lot. It's not just learning new stuff, but also actually cementing what you DO know. Language is largely contextual so exposing oneself to context is essential to truly learning.
I took that off Bishop's marketing page for the game Chijoku no Seifuku, which is a pretty good nukige if you ask me.
I stopped studying for a year or so due to low willpower. Of course, now that TitS FC and SC came out with no TC/Crossbell on the horizon, with ToCS being butchered with a dub, there's only one thing to do.
FULL SPEED AHEAD! WILLPOWER TO MAXIMUM!
> Time spent shitposting is time spent not studying. If you're about to engage in a silly argument or off-topic discussion, use your time productively and do it in Japanese!
>to low willpower.
Heed these words:
Even when you have 0 willpower, keep up anki reps. Cement this into your brain: If you do new cards in anki every day, you WILL learn Japanese.
You would probably never say something like that to begin with unless you were saying "I'll run (in contrast with somebody else who isn't."
If you switch the は for a が you get something akin to "shall I"
Shall I carry this (for you)?
I actually agree with Jean-Paul Sartre too, but there an important note to take in the comic which you missed, I think. Well, in any case, this is /djt/ - philosophy so I won't press the matter.
>lack the ability to control your focus of attention
You have train to reach that point, people aren't born disciplined. I assure you weren't too, and if you aren't giving advice you yourself don't follow, you went through a long process to become disciplined (be it at school, life, work, whatever). You don't just decide on a whim to just do shit, there are many mental factors that you need to consider before. It's like telling a person suffering from depression to stop being depressed, that's just not how it works.
Those don't have a pace. You re-read the information until you understand it.
If you want some advice, get he DOJG deck off the OP, it covers Tae Kim. Also, read the example sentences in Core2k.
Asking here since the guide doesn't mention it. I have problems with VNs because it takes forever to properly analyse words and kanji that I don't know. Is there a way to put mouse-over translation rikaichan style?
>since the guide doesn't mention it
You didn't actually look through it, I'll just tell you to fuck off
I would have said like >>133394870
if there wasn't that の at the end. It can means a lot of things. Have you got a context for us? What kind of conversation is this from?
If someone is pretending not worrying about someone else but showing the contrary, a third party can say that looking at him:
'Look how in fact/Aren't you in fact worrying about him?'
the "やってん”suggests the action is made towards another person that is considered inferior to the person worrying (or younger, or of the same family or maybe an animal). It can also be a favor you do to another person by worrying for him.
I think this can be translated a lot of ways depending on the context.
At least I'm all done playing catch up.
Now I just gotta cram a few thousand words this month in preparation for the JLPT.
Try this link instead of the mediafire one
It has had a few little typographical errors corrected and the styling has been set more neutral.
I use Ankidroid, on a tablet, so the image of the notes displays to fit the screen or via pinch drag zoom in and out, which is different from the desktop program which displays at the native image size.
About to start adding the note images for the Intermediate section having reviewed all of the Basic notes myself.
Japanese: The Manga Way is really only designed to serve as an introduction to the language.
Forgot to mention: the front side of card has the English sentence displayed because I clicked the "Show expression_en" button/prompt. By default the translations are hidden unless pressed, as a means to force the reviewer to face the Japanese first and only refer to the English is they need to.
It tests reading, listening, and grammar, so if you were to have no listening ability whatsoever, it would be kind of stupid to say you actually passed, even if your other scores were top notch.
I usually just listen to the NHK news podcast each night.
If you don't like anime at all though, why are you learning Japanese? You aren't going to get good at listening unless you find something you actually want to listen to.
I really like a lot of manga, it's just really hard for me to find anime that interest me now. I feel like I've seen everything that caters to my absurdly specific tastes, but manga is a different frontier entirely.
Depends how long you want to spend studying flash cards each day. I think 25-30 is a pretty good pace. I've done 40 and 50 before and they kind of sucked. Some kids here tried 100 and got buttfucked in no time. My recommendation is to turn up the new count very slowly. Expect around 10x the new count in reviews each day.
Guys, guys! I've just read a fucking unadapted news articles on NHK! It was about the first domestic japanese avialiner in 50 years!
Lately I've been running into several grammar points that don't appear to be in any of the DOJGs and trying to hunt down an explanation on Google can take forever, so I'm looking for a more comprehensive grammar reference.
Is my best bet at this point to look for a J>J grammar textbook?
That's what I've been doing, but I'm wondering if there's a more centralized source of information that I don't know about yet since I was under the (mistaken) impression that the DOJGs were fully comprehensive.
>My beautiful quints on a post like that
Check the archives or the CoR for 日本語文型辞典. Recalling from memory so it might not be the exact title, but it is sImilar to the DoJG books but has a wider coverage. It is a hell of a lot less explanatory than the DoJG books but is a decent J-J grammar dictionary with a rather extensive index of concepts. If you are at the level wherein exhausting all three DoJG books and can handle the example sentences in the Advanced volume easy enough, you are probably around the level of being able to quickly reference the above mentioned volume. It is also concise enough to make little Anki cards out of different entries. The descriptions are usually brief enough for that.
It is useful if you want to learn nuance. That is why they teach grammar at school instead of stopping at around the first grade.
Stop with the bullshit 'you don't need to study grammar' rhetoric. It is a useful tool only someone afraid of having their comprehension corrected would fail to take advantage of.
Not him but I haven't read any grammar guides for Japanese and have no trouble understanding it
Why do those two alphabets have letters that look similar between them? What was the fucking point of having two if you're going to just reuse some? What the fuck is this ツシ bullshit?
Find a comfortable number that you can keep up for weeks without fail. There's no use doing a huge number of them for three days after which your motivation fades just enough to shelf it for too long. I took a month long break and now I have rememorize 600 kanji. Take it easy and keep raising the number if you are consistently doing your reps.
This is so basic I'm ashamed.
But I just don't get what this says.
What's with the ベッドが四つあります。??
I just don't get what they're saying. Help.
I wasn't around when you posted this, but if you're around now, thanks. It seems to work properly, at least as far as I can tell. Should be helpful for people who are considering messing with their new card rate and are curious about the effect it will have on their review count.
I feel like maybe this should be linked in the guide.
I don't get how you're supposed to use this deck. Why is the answer on the front of the card? What are you supposed to be coming up with in your head before flipping the card over?
someone needs to teach them japs how to tell time correctly
Language classes for natives are less to teach them the nuances of the language and more to turn them into more eloquent communicators. If they needed it in order to understand the language's nuances, they'd have a lot of trouble making friends, watching TV, or even keeping up with what the teacher was trying to tell them.
The grammar rules are probably the least useful part of language class, and very few people actually remember what they learned there. What's a predicate? "Um... isn't that a grammar concept?" It doesn't change that they intuitively knew how to use a predicate in their native tongue before they ever heard it from a teacher's mouth.
The more useful parts of language classes are the essay writing + corrections to improve their writing form and the fact that they force the student to read.
Of course, as foreign learners, we need to pay a bit more attention to grammar structures than native speakers, at least initially, as we didn't build up that vocabulary and intuition as small children.
>implying you can answer the question
There's actually some truth to this.
Step one to learning Japanese is to believe that you''re capable of reaching your goal. If you're being a pussy and a drama queen and acting like you won't make it because it's just too hard for your stupid ass, you'll approach Japanese without sufficient drive (why work hard for something that you can't have?) and set yourself up to fail.
This isn't just a good policy for Japanese, either. Any large task needs to met with confidence that you will succeed.
>Durrrr durrr, so you're saying that if someone goes straight from being a couch potato to hiking Mount Everest, they can expect to do well if they just believe that they can do it?
Obviously, believing that you'll succeed in the long run doesn't mean that you don't need to form a realistic plan, starting at the beginning and progressing towards your goal in a logical fashion. If you wanted to hike Mount Everest, you would begin by hiking some local trails, doing some camping, going on trips, and getting yourself in excellent shape. You would spend a few years on this step. Then you would do research on how to prepare. Then, when you were ready, you would head for Mount Everest.
Reading Ranma. Probably too easy for my current level, but it's fun and the characters are cute.
Every time I encounter 自分 it completely throws me off, I never know who the fuck its referring to, the speaker, the listener or some other people entirely, can someone please explain how exactly it works?
koohii site (where the stories in that github link were pulled from) has the kanji at the end of the URL of each kanji and accepts various inputs in the search bar on the side (key word, frame number, the kanji itself, etc.), so you can use it in the same way. Only downside is you need to make a koohii account to use it, but who gives a shit.
This >>133407284 is just stories. If you want what's in the book itself / heisig's too, then you're out of luck. a PDF of the book + the koohii site for stories is the closest you'll get until someone re-uploads the github thing somewhere (if anyone does).
>If you do new cards in anki every day, you WILL learn Japanese.
The language is an orthographic clusterfuck because the Nips refuse to make it more efficient even though literally any other way of doing it would be better. Just have to suck it up until they breed themselves out of existence
>don't think feel
>arguing against grammar
You're that youtube Nig claiming to be "high intermediate" in Japanese despite only being able to have super basic rehearsed conversations, aren't you?
You infer it from context. 自分 just means "oneself" so it might refer to the speaker or to someone else, but you can identify who it refers to since it's always whoever is the topic of the sentence. This can be explicitly introduced with the は or simply implied.
Who this refers to depends on is x. If the parenthesis part isn't specified, you can usually still make it out.
I typed all that before you said this, so what I typed is kind of useless since you seem to already understand it. If that's the case, mind providing the example that's confusing you?
To be fair there's a lot about this sentence that I don't understand, I just thought I'd ask about the 自分 part since it was at the start, but here it is anyway, there's a guy explaining to two people about how all the people in the country have telepathic powers
He's roughly that level in everything except Mandarin, which he is pretty good at. He just claims to be "intermediate" in everything where he has a basic "Hi, how are you", "I learned because of x, x and x", and "I'm married" etc
He's done Swedish for about 11 months this year, and a guy said although it wasn't great and had obvious errors, it wasn't spectacularly bad either
Just found out that in order to get my B.A. I have to take four semesters of a foreign language, I figure I might as well learn Nip.
Assuming any of you have experience with college moon classes, how full of spergs is it going to be?
I haven't taken the beginner classes at my university, so I have no idea about those, but the later classes had the same proportion of spergs as any other classes I've taken at college.
That's a terrible idea. Choose an easy language that has less of an initial learning curve if all you're doing it for is a requirement. Not sure what's listed, but Spanish is probably your best bet.
Only take Nip if you actually care and plan on learning it properly.
Oh, I didn't mean to make it sound like I'm just taking the course because I think it will be easy. If I wanted something easy just to get the requirement out of the way, as you said, I would be better off taking Spanish.
What >>133408196 said. Japanese is significantly harder than basically any other language for a native English speaker to learn. If you're doing it as a requirement, picking Japanese is not in your interests since:
1. It's going to require a lot more time and effort than a European language, meaning you're more likely to fail/not do well.
2. You will probably not learn anything useful by the time you finish.
3. Assuming you're a Clapistani, "I can speak Spanish" would be much more valuable on your CV than "I can speak Japanese.
Ah ok. Get started on the kana right away. That'll already put you ahead of 99% of the losers (who will drop out after 1 month, maximum) who joined up
Wouldn't harm you getting some basic grammar in beforehand also so you're not thrown in at the deep end。This might make your first few classes tedious as fuck though as your lecturer spends a month explaining to the idiots about -masu form and the は particle.
Just give up. You can't learn Japanese in four semesters.
The original source for the figures is a document from the Washington Foreign Service Institute. Pic related.
Should I learn Japanese?
I plan on focusing on being a linguist overall but my issue is that I'm just not sure how valuable Japanese is in a business environment. I mean I spend a lot of time with Japanese stuff as my hobby but that's just a hobby, it won't help me immediately.
Basically, is there any real point to learning Japanese beyond being a filthy fucking weeb?
Being a filthy fucking weeb is literally one of the best reasons for learning the language. I can't really find many that are better. Only "Living in Japan" would count as a better reason.
No language except English is valuable in a business environment.
>can literally read pornography
I'm jealous. I've been trying to read 1 single page of pornography for a week, and I still don't have it down 100%
Grammar is fucking me all up. It makes no sense to me. Just a bunch of disconnected words strung together in sentences
The only time a foreign language is valuable in a business environment is if you're going to be working in a business environment where the customers speak that language.
Even then, you're either looking at moving to Japan or working for a large multinational, and at multinationals only a small % of business directly involves foreign languages.
>The Malaysian language (Malay: Bahasa Malaysia), or Standard Malay is the name regularly applied to the Malay language used in Malaysia. Constitutionally however, the official language of Malaysia is Malay but the government from time to time refers to it as Malaysian
Here's an offline version of that site. It's an earlier version so the stroke order diagrams are different.
Yea, but that's just beginner stuff. That's assuming we ignore the Chinese characters which are still used in some areas of Korean culture.
Intermediate hell is where language difficulties start to kick in, and Korean intermediate hell is the 9th circle.
What exactly is intermediate hell?
"How many anki reps per day" is the wrong attitude. You just need to keep at it consistently.
I don't think that guy was talking about that figure. I think he meant pic related.
It's usually closer to 250. I increased my new cards/day yesterday days ago because I'm nearing the end of my deck so my reviews are a little higher than normal today. I think I'm going to drop it back down again after tomorrow though.
In my first few weeks I was getting close to 400 reviews a day because I was stupid with my new cards/day rate, so compared to that, this isn't so bad.
My stats aren't very good because I stupidly set my new cards/day rate at 100 right off the bat, then when I found out that was actually not a very smart idea, I decided that I would change it from 100 to 50, which, as I later found out, was still way too high.
I don't think so. I've heard a lot of people say that the last 4k words aren't anywhere near as useful as the first 2k, so it's better to start a mining deck for new words at that point.
The words do get less useful but that is a natural outcome of learning vocabulary. After learning words that you will use a lot regardless of whether you learn them from Core2k or mining or wherever, the remaining words in the language you haven't seen will become more and more uncommon and hence less "useful".
What I'm trying to say here is you should consider doing the rest of core at a relaxed pace along with your mining deck. There is a large degree of overlap in the last 4000 words and the words you're likely to mine (not so useless, see?) so you can happily suspend lots of cards too.
One more thing is be sure to grab Epwing2Anki/Rikaisama RTI/some OCR tool from the guide because it will make your life so much easier when mining manga.
And of course if you fucking hate anki just stop adding new cards to core and take my advice with a truck of salt since I'm just some guy slightly more than halfway through core6k
Easy overall. Easy grammar and very low amount of vocabulary. There's a reading pack for it that has page by page vocabulary lists for the first 2 volumes too, which includes slang and puns.
Pretty much everything in Core6k is essential in that regardless of what you read, unless it is only stuff for kids in all kana, you are going to come across all of them soon enough.
What is the value of "mining"? What is the purpose? Why is it "painful"?
No, I mean the first 2 volumes.
Not like typing the word into a jisho or rikai'ing over it takes much more time. The main benefit of the reading pack is the fact that the vocab list html/pdf page explains the slang and some of the jokes you wouldn't otherwise get due to low vocabulary. I'm not suggesting that he use the deck in it.
Besides, the only way mining would be "painful" is if you don't have your shit set up properly to streamline the process. It's literally a matter of typing a word and then pressing the real time import or save keybind.
That's not me.
>start writing a week ago or something
>get to 勉 and 強 today
>realise they make up the word べんきょう
>look up the first kanji, check its meaning and write it out
>get to the second kanji
>check the English meaning in Jisho
>mfw I never realised until now that the 強 in 勉強 is the same kanji as the 強 in 強い and 強化
Okay, maybe writing is important after all.
I just started using this Wanikani thing, even though I've been studying using other resources for eight months. It seems really neat.
Ever since I discovered what "あなた" used to and continues to mean, I've been very reluctant to use it but in a face to face conversation with someone you don't know there is no other option since "君" might be too rude
You can only see it when you have cards up for studying. Otherwise, just look at the unseen cards on the stats.
Although I'm not sure beta is the one I'm using so who knows if what I'm saying applies to you.
>● Rikaisama is an easy way to generate word lists while browsing the web.
How do you generate a word list using Rikaisama? I flicked through the manual but couldn't find any reference to this feature.
You mean this guy?
I'm asking this because I set to stop getting new cards months ago and my average card review went to 400-ish cards in total to almost one quarter. I reinforced my learning through writing kanji and I feel more confident. I know it's going take more time but I'm glad I can tell from kanji such as 料 and 科. Don't japanese kids learn a specific set of kanji per grade? Well, I'm taking this sort of approach.
I kinda finished core2k, I still have to mature young cards but I should be at close to 99% old cards within three weeks.
I'd like to prepare for the JLPT taking place in summer 2016. What goal do you think I should realistically set? Level 3 or 2?
It took me a year to finish core2k, though I have done RTK before.
Nevermind, figured it out.
Go to preferences, change it like pic related, hover over a word and then hit the X key.
30 words a day
15 kanji a day
10/20 (depending on time) DoJG deck grammar cards a day
Takes around 100 minutes, maybe? How many cards/facts studied a day is hard to say due to review fluctuation.
Japanese kids have official grade kanji lists they are supposed to be taught, but there are variations depending on the teachers and such, just like in any education system. Good to see your confidence increase, it might translate to a willingness to take more risky- maybe that isn't the right word- steps in your studies and language interaction that can hand unforeseen positive impact on proficiency. Like someone building up the confidence to start regularly speaking Japanese with Japanese people online in IRL, etc. Ignore the other guy, he's just a bitter sperg.
Below is the list you may have been referring to:
Japanese people must think their language is super hard or near impossible to learn. 2 times in the last 30 minutes people have stopped talking to me because they think I am lying or think I am Japanese. My Japanese isn't even that good. Why would they think that? Mid conversation they just say something like "There's no way you can be this good in 5 months" and just leave. The last person I spoke to who did this said I must be Japanese because I didn't answer back in English when they said an English sentence. No, the reason I replied in Japanese was because I didn't want to start a cringeworthy conversation in broken English where you think you are way better than you actually are.
This stuff just pisses me off. This happens after a good while of talking too. I don't get it. They don't think I should know any kanji or be able to even communicate. People are either horny 20 year olds looking for internet poon or are elitist faggots.
There's my rant over. Obviously I've ran into good people and have had good conversations, but this shit happens so often.
Also the website I was using was chatpad.jp
From now on I'll probably not tell them I'm foreign until theire's something I can't understand. Or maybe I'll skip them, who knows.
>Sometimes I wonder if I should just quit and play video games.
Same here, although that's watching anime for me. Haven't watched almost anything lately, which is ironic considering the reason I'm even learning the language.
>I believe cursive is an outdated, illegible way to write. No one uses it, it has no place in the modern world
I started learning Japanese after the VNs I was reading weren't finished translated. Haven't played one in months since I don't want to read any with a shitty English translation or with text-hooker. Sigh.
Doing something because that's what people always did is the meaning of tradition. But I guess that's as good a reason as any to waste children's time instead of teaching them something actually useful.
They literally do think it's impossible for non-Japanese to learn. They're still living in the world of Victorian race theory
The Polish seem to have that trait also... thinking their language is impossible, but generally not to the same level as the Nips.
I'd have gonna full colloquial/dialect if someone whined about me not replying in English. Let's see their precious google translate/broken English try and get through that.
I tried reading some with a texthooker but decided it was too slow with my current amount of vocab. Now at 5k I'm thinking of trying again and hoping I don't need to hover on many words.
On that note, where do people get that stats on the number of kanji for VNs?
The reason people wrote like that is because it is a lot more efficient to do so and constantly lifting a pen and plodding it back down on paper increases blotches. People write "cursive", not because of tradition, but because of efficiency. It's like why people are taught to touch type instead of using two fingers. Not because of tradition but because it is the more sensible thing to do.
4chan is an 18+ board. Come back when you have a little more life experience.
I'm loving the "Kanji is hard" meme
Just because you spend 15 years learning the fucking thing in your shitty, inefficient, outdated school system, doesn't mean we have to
They cannot comprehend that Kanji is not that difficult
>they may not have much use
They have no use.
>but if you can't learn them then you are retarded.
The only languages which use them are irrelevant so I have no need to learn them.
Oh look, dumb burgers talking shit about cursive again.
I left my reps alone for a while and now I have nearly a thousand to get through. Feels nice to be working away at that guilty feeling I had at the back of my mind though.
Gonna be here for hours though.
yeah that sounds about right
I also learned to write them on paper though which is a lot more work in the beginning.
personally I don't care how retarded my brain is, it takes as long as it takes
What's the best way for looking up certain sentence structures?
I can obviously figure out what it means, but I'd like to get a formal definition of how AもBも is used and what exactly it means
>I can obviously figure out what it means, but I'd like to get a formal definition of how AもBも is used and what exactly it means
99% of the time this happens the answer is "it means exactly what you thought it meant"
So much this, sometimes I feel like people in this thread who use Anki are more concerned about "hey guys look at muh epic stats on Anki" and discussing other useless stuff about anki while not actually learning how to "produce" speech and develop actual conversations
>Just because you spend 15 years learning the fucking thing in your shitty, inefficient, outdated school system, doesn't mean we have to
What method do you use, out of curiosity?
>Why would I care about speech or conversations?
Knowing how to correctly pronounce words and being able to produce grammatically correct sentences on your own will inevitably and greatly help you in understanding when other people talk in that language
