I study daily. I spend around an hour and a half on Anki (reviews and new cards + custom study session of today's forgotten cards at the end of the day), and probably about 20 minutes on writing kanji.

Going to start reading and mining soon though, so the above is subject to change. I'll still study every day though because one day off can quite easily turn into two days off, then three, four... a week... a month... etc.

How do you guys do your vocab reps?

1. Do you try hard to remember what a word means before pressing "again" or do you do so shortly after noticing that the meaning is not obvious?
2. When finding a unknown kanji in a word, do you stop to search what it means on jisho (or equivalent) before carrying on?

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I want to know how other /a/nons study.

Would you keep doing anki reps if you got cancer? I think I would.
>>
>>133565964
I think "know" is commonly used in both senses, that is including just recognition or including both recognition and production, and that trying to monopolize its meaning in some sort of war for semantic supremacy over one specific use of a word with an already ridiculously broad meaning is silly and unproductive. It's easier to simply make it clear whether you're talking about production, recognition or both.
>>
>>133566366
Right now I'm doing anki reps exclusively for harder kanji and rare words; if I got a fast-acting terminal cancer (dead in less than 2 years) I'd drop it and just read moege / nukige while crying because I'll never read Muramasa at a good speed; if it'll take 2-4+ years then I'll actually double anki and speed the fuck up trying to get to Muramasa level in time.
>>
>>133565979
Most of the arguments involving RTK are likely the same few people, considering it's the same argument every time. If you're interested in handwriting kanji from memory and understand how mnemonics work, then it's great at what it aims to do. If you're just using it because you have slight retention / recognition issues / mix similar kanji up because you don't know radicals and aren't paying close enough attention and don't actually care about ever handwriting, then it's likely a waste of time unless you have the worst vocab retention in the world.

My only issues are some of the keywords are a bit shit and some kanji are easy to confuse due to similar keywords. I'm combating this by adding cloze vocabulary to my cards (words with the kanji in question replaced by its reading in that particular word). I'm eventually going to remove the keywords from the front altogether.

In the beginning of the sentence, what does that mean?

Exactly what >>133567579 said, which is the same as と言っても in case you don't know.

As for the line as a whole, he's saying he can't do/doesn't know a lot of sexual positions, which is implied to be a potential problem if she wants to have sex for such a long time.

つったって here is used as a broken down version of -って言ったって which means "even if you say so" or "you say that, but".
The rest of the sentence; 体位 - Body Position, バリエーション - Variation
Combined, the full translation is:
You say that, but, I don't know too many sex positions.

They are words commonly misread by Japanese. It doesn't matter if some gaijin says that the kanji is just using a common onyomi.

Used Heisig's Remembering the Kana when I first started learning japanese. Even taking it easy it should take a few weeks or less by doing so.

Give it a week of study priorizing hiragana and then continue your studies. Kana is everywhere in japanese, so it'll become second nature after a while.

A month. I wasn't really planing on learning at the time though, I just kept learning a few kana a day for fun. If I had goals in mind a week would have probably been enough to do it at a leisurely pace.
>>
>>133571217
What do you mean by that? Each kana only corresponds to one sound, doesn't it? Are you talking about kanji?

It takes a couple days at most to learn all the kana through rote memory, if you put some effort into it.
>>
ゑ What is this hiragana?
>>
>>133571642
Yes, but two symbols can be in the same Kana, and it makes a completely different sound. In Korean for example, ㄱ= k ㅣ= i 기= ki. whereas in Japanese, こ = ko, and に= ni, despite both having the symbol for ko in it, if that makes sense.

Genki only teaches classroom Japanese. It's primary purpose is to give students the information they need to answer questions in exams. Tae Kim has a broader scope because it's intended for self-study and not constrained by what is and isn't needed for students in a classroom environment.

For instance, you won't find any of this in Genki because students won't be tested on it:

If you let yourself get hung up on this, you're going to have a pain in the arse with kanji.

Japanese is Japanese, Korean is Korean. The strokes in the kana aren't related to sounds, they're derived from elements of kanji (and kanji is not a phonetic script).

All right, I have a NEET study report. As we all know, studying Japanese is very time consuming and leaves little time for showering. However, grease accumulates on hair which becomes a distraction to studying, so one is forced to shower about once every 3-4 days. In order to deter this, I shaved my entire head. The results are astounding. I am currently on my. I have showered only 2 times since October 1st, and both were because I was forced to leave the home for extenuating circumstances. I am currently on my 21st day in a row without showering and am JUST NOW beginning to notice any smell. My Japanese ability as SOARED. If you're a NEET interested in learning Japanese - a buzzcut will do you wonders.

I don't really keep track of the days anymore, but I probably shower once a week or less. Keeping my hair tied up stops the greasiness of my hair from bothering me at all.

Showering is a good time to review the vocabulary you learned today.
>>
>>133575268
Takes time, every time a shower crosses my mind I have to decide "stop reading VN or keep reading VN", as a dedicated Japanese learner I always pick the latter.
>>133575252
It's interesting to see how societal pressures can mold a mind like this. It's not like humans are meant to bath every day.
>>
>>133575252
showering every day is not healthy, 6 days a week is the recommended ideal

your skin also needs to time to relax and repair itself, showering is aggressive and depending on your skin type showering more or less can be better

First time actually opening the DOIJG after having it downloaded from /a/ some time ago
How the fuck does the index work?
For example if you go to "Z" you can see "zutsu" is on page 572, the pdf doesn't have page 572 but if you go to it manually so you can see 572 on the scan, it's some shit about "wake"

Always go straight for the index on DOAJG.

>>133575427
The page number isn't the page number of the PDF, it's the page number of the book itself.
>>
>>133575517
I can't possibly imagine being methodical enough for a shower to take more than 20 minutes. There's just not enough things to do. Unless you divide your body surface into one square inch sectors and wash them twice each, one by one.

Reading the two and understanding them individually should teach him the difference. Also, DOJG often goes specifically into the difference between similar, though those two are not the case, understanding them individually will make him see that there is nothing in common between them.

Original poster here. Sorry for causing the commotion. I did read both entries on にして and として and there was a section comparing to the two, though I thought there'd be more to it. I went on google to search for a J->J explanation but there was this one same link that kept getting regurgitated in my searches.

I was just hoping if anybody knew more nuances behind the two, since they're both similar to some regard: both deal with a comparison (with one declaring that X is the subject while the other one puts emphasis on the subject, or role/occupation in place).

Yeah, that's how it is at first, but you gotta start at some point and a basic grammar guide and core2k are enough for you to work your way through it. There's no point in postponing it until you have a huge vocabulary.

The only thing I really want to read is Wikipedia articles in Japanese, light novels, and history stuff.

Like I used to be doing 30 words a day fine on anki and was just getting in to reading, then I just hit a bloc of words I couldn't keep track of - and no matter how many times I write them, and no matter how instant my recall of a specific word, it just doesn't stick which fucking put me down so now I've started doing other shit to procrastinate about reading.

>>133578902
Well, the best advice I can give you is stop procrastinating and read more. Pre-made anki decks are supposed to give you some grounding on which to stand on when taking your first steps, they're never going to make reading a comfortable experience by themselves. The only way you have ahead of you is acquiring more experience by actually reading more. If you like reading about history in Wikipedia do it. It's much harder than some nukige or shounen manga, but if it's, as they say, compelling to you, it's good practice material. Light novels are probably much easier too. Also, I don't see why you would be interested in LN's and not manga. Manga has much superior variety and quality to offer.

Whatever floats your boat, but the guide only requires you to recognize the vocab he presents, nothing more. If you want to put some extra effort it will not go to waste in the long run, but it will not help you much with the guide in particular.

Only if it's anime related. It's the only reason why it's allowed on /a/. Take that shit to /int/.
>>
>>133580527
Nope.

Someone post the message from that mod.

Nobody knows. It's a random online test.

Go take the JCAT. You've been slacking hard if you aren't N2 or at least very close to it.

>You've been slacking hard if you aren't N2 or at least very close to it.
I dunno, I'm not that guy but I always hesitate to put any weight into tests. I think it's smarter to just judge by proficiency, like "what can you read and how well can you read it" kind of stuff.
>>
>>133580723
Which is impossible to compare across people over the internet, thus people use things like tests.
>>
>>133580812
I was specifically pointing out the "you've been slacking hard" thing.
>>
>>133580812
>compare across people over the internet
What kind of faggot would want to do that?
>>
>>133580723
All tests are easy peasy if you're actually proficient.
>>
>>133580884
And if you can read things comfortably then you can certainly get N2 on the JCAT.

>>133580897
>Is this where I should be at
How do you expect to give any reasonably answer to this question without some method of comparison?
>>
>>133580527
No one cares, fuck off already.
>>
>10 hour thread
W-what happened?

I know it's wrong to shitpost but does anyone know where I can find the rest of the aku no hana volumes raw? The download in the list only goes up to the sixth volume and senmanga is missing a few chapters between them.
>>
>>133581014
How ironic.
>>
>>133581185
Relatively it's not much of a shitpost. Have you checked nyaa?
>>
>>133565251
It's like $60 or something. Just take the J-cat if you don't want to pay
>>
Better than I thought, but I could be going faster. 6 months here.

What's a good way to get into listening practice if you're reading your first moege and still don't have much vocab under your belt? I've heard Jpod101 is good, but I'm not really sure where a good point to jump in would be since I'd probably miss a lot of vocab.

Anime
>>
>>133581506
The Pimsleur method.
>>
>>133581550
Fuck anime.
>>
>>133581506
Reading more VNs and listening to dialogue would be better for you honestly. I didn't start listening really heavily until I could read moege pretty easily and getting into listening was pretty smooth. It's a good idea to watch some anime every day though no matter what level you are.

His only saving grace is that he's moe as fuck.

I wish.

Seriously though, you're on /a/, stop being a faggot. There's probably tons of anime you'd like anyway.
>>
>>133581588
Is a gimmick for beginners, not a plan for practicing listening comprehension.
>>
>>133581540
Have you never tried it? It's pretty nice. I skipped to intermediate though.
>>
>>133581540
I've just heard it mentioned here numerous times. Is it not very good? What would you recommend, then?

>>133581550
I'm not sure if I'm quite at that level yet considering I still go through the moege fairly slowly and have to look up a lot of vocabulary and sometimes grammar.

>>133581618
Yeah, I guess I'll just put it off and try listening to VN dialogue for now if there are no good suggestions that are suitable to my level.

>>133581639
That's not me. I'm watching 20 shows this season with subs.
>>
>前略

what
>>
>>133581689
>What would you recommend, then?
Listening to VN lines. Anime with Japanese subs. Podcasts. Tv. Nico Douga.

If you can't do most of thosthen you aren't at a level where it's efficient to focus on listening comprehension and you should just play podcasts in the background or something.
>>
>>133581639
I watch anime all the time, but that doesn't make me blind to its shittiness and lowly nature.
>>
>>133581689
>I'm not sure if I'm quite at that level yet considering I still go through the moege fairly slowly and have to look up a lot of vocabulary and sometimes grammar.
I started doing listening practice with anime before I started reading baby tier manga. Just pick something you've watched already (preferably school setting SoL cause they tend to be the easiest) and rewatch it raw.
>>
So I just started doing vocab.

When a word comes up, and I remember the meaning but not the reading (... or the opposite, I guess, although that's yet to happen), what should I press? Again? Hard?
>>
>>133581639
I watched all the good anime ever made and I didn't even like most of it.
>>
>>133581774

topkek.

前置きを略して(省いて)
I don't see what's complicated about it
>>
>>133582025
It's not about it being complicated, it's about it being ridiculously long and frilly.
>>
>>133581831
Again. You gotta know the readings.
>>
>>133581831
Do it until you can't get it wrong.
>>
>>133581831
Again. The reading is the word, not the appearance of the kanji.
