>Do you take any day off from studying japanese or you study everyday?
>and how much do you study?
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.
who's ready for the JLPT? as far as I know it is really hard, any of guys will present it in a few weeks?

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.
I have 140 sheets of paper full of 200 handwritten kanji each because I still handwrite each kanji review
I just look at the kanji for 2 seconds and show it. reps are too boring
Usually I only search for individual kanji to look at the radicals used. This is what happens when you don't do all of RTK

It's like a qualifier that goes in place names and, by extension, in a lot of peoples' names.

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.
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.
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.
I think I would do even more to distract myself or pass the time spent lying in hospitals, but all depending how bad the cancer and treatment affect me of course.
I've seen people go home from their weekly chemo and not show much of a reaction when I worked as a paramedic
so, what is the best method to study kanji?
Read a lewd, see a girl say "おもしろい思い出を作りたかったけど、今はエッチなことずっとしてたい" which I understand, but then the guy responds with "つったって俺体位のバリエーションとかあんまり無いんだけど". What does this mean? I think I know, but what I think it means is completely unrelated to what she said and I don't get why he said this.
Also, what does つったって even mean?
他人事 [spoilers]ひとごと[/spoilers] Incorrect: たにんごと
各々 [spoilers]おのおの[/spoilers] Incorrect: かくかく
重複 [spoilers]ちょうふく[/spoilers] Incorrect: じゅうふく
欠伸 [spoilers]あくび[/spoilers] Incorrect: けっしん
I'm inclined to believe that it's something along the lines of と言ったって
Furthermore, I am inclined to believe that he is referring to positions assumed during sexual intercourse.
>I'm inclined to believe that it's something along the lines of と言ったって
In the beginning of the sentence, what does that mean?
>Furthermore, I am inclined to believe that he is referring to positions assumed during sexual intercourse.
I was thinking so, but how is that a sensical response to what she said? Why is he talking about that all of a sudden?
>Also, what does つったって even 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.
>trusting the cloudy jew
>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.
Ohhhh, that's the relevance. I see now. I didn't see the implication he was making.
>which is the same as と言っても in case you don't know.
I did not.
Thank you >>133567717, >>133567579 & also >>133567789 for helping me understand.
>But I don't reckon I can think of that many sexual positions...
>what I think it means is completely unrelated to what she said and I don't get why he said this.
> Both are used. If you're going to make a reading quiz shouldn't you keep it limited to words with unusual readings at the very least?
They are words commonly misread by Japanese. It doesn't matter if some gaijin says that the kanji is just using a common onyomi.
Alright, I know Hiragana and Katakana. I also read the first couple of grammar lessons in tae kim. I know a few kanji like "today" or "I".
How do I read that shit?
Finish Tae Kim and do Core2K. You won't understand shit if all you've read is his basic grammar section. The essential grammar section is called "essential" for a reason. Most of the special expressions and advanced topics sections are essential too.
If you're too lazy to do that, you can't learn Japanese.
>I just want to masturbate
someone should work on an erotic grammar guide
through dick unity
>attaching の to verbs/adjectives can turn them into nouns
>example sentence: 大きのが欲しい (I want (your) dick (literally: the big thing))
I can see this working out, though finding pictures with appropriate sentences could take a while
I think about 8 or 9 months.
I "quit" (just did Core 2k/6k reviews and forgot a lot of the grammar by the time I came back and had to restart Tae Kim) for a bit over a month twice in that time, though. I most likely won't quit this time since I'm at the point where I'm slowly reading through moege.
The downside is that when you hear Okamas using "あたし" and "わ" you feel much more disgust than before you knew the connotations of those words

I'm learning kanji through vocab but should I also put time into remembering the individual meaning of each kanji or is it a waste of time?
e.g. 大型 - big + mould, model
feels like it would help a lot for picking up words but what do I know.
Been to DJT back when they weren't numbered. Didn't really post back then and didn't stick around for long.
Right now I've been reading these threads almost daily since early this year
I've seen my brother play one of the goemon games on his imported snes, it was pretty simple to follow and barely used kanji at all, not even words like 牛肉 were written in kanji
How did you go? These are a little tricky because they differ slightly to what you might think at first!
How long did it take you guys to memorize all the kana?
Coming from Korean, I'm having a hard time, as each symbol always makes the same sound, so two connected symbols are easy, whereas for Japanese, it seems to not matter.
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.
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.
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.
He's comparing it to hangul, where each character ist made up from a set of parts.
So all "a-"-sounds have ㅏ in them, all "n"- sounds have ㄴ in them, so to get "na", you just put them together like this: 나
Look at this sentence:
this translates to "If I don't find a weapon quickly... (something bad will happen)"
in your case it's the same, only calling out another person in agreement at the end
>Don't know how to Anki
>Tae Kim is scrub tier
Tae Kim covers more than Genki. What about it is "scrub tier" exactly?
>Can't afford incoded anime
"Incoded" isn't a word. I don't even know what you're trying to say here.
Yeah, you're thinking of it like korean where every piece of the character says something about the sound. That doesn't happen in kana at all. Each character is its own thing.
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).
because aniki doesn't speak real japanese

I don't use Flash so if I ever want to watch a video from there I have to rip it with NicoFox and pray that the stars are aligned and site isn't in low quality mode.
I really don't know how Japs stand to use that site. It's functionally awful. How has no other Japanese site come along and replaced it yet?
I spent a few years watching streams, copy pasting pretty much every comment into google translate for readings. This was right after learning only hiragana. I could read katakana and ~100 kanji after all the copy pasting
But yeah, the site is shit
T-thanks for the support guys...
I meant to say hirigana I don't know where kana came from.
>as well as all the kana for the kanji
I meant the grammar for kanji...I'm beginning to think drinking and internet aren't the best of combinations.
Anyway when do you guys study every day every week every hour?
>You're literally saying「平仮名仮名」 (note the repetition of 仮名)
Make sure you pick up Tae Kim or some other grammar guide. Alternatively, if you were already quite far into Genki, you may as well just finish it then use Tae Kim or the DOJG as a reference when you get stuck.
>Finally got those fucking days of the week nailed down.
Thanks to the ones that said to just do it outside of Anki. Don't know why I didn't think of that. Makes way more sense when it comes to numbers, days and shit when you can see the pattern clearly.
It basically is broke though. Imagine if YouTube had that low quality mode bullshit where for half the day or more you could only watch videos in 360p. People would ditch it overnight and move to a better site.
what? the weekdays are associated to the same planets as in english
no exceptional readings either
maybe it was easier for me since I knew how some planets were written before learning the days of the week
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.
>shaving your hair off
>not just letting it grow it really long and keeping it tied up all the time
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.
>not just showering instead
why, it's not unpleasant or anything
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.
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.
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
It takes me about an hour to shower. It's such a pain in the arse. I'm a friendless NEET, I have nobody to keep up appearances with. I shower when I want to and don't when I don't.
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"
Where the fuck is zutsu then
The DOBJ's index works fine
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.
Hey DJT. What's the difference between にして and として?
Are there any more nuances than this?
>wet hair and move it off my skin
>wash upper back, shoulders and neck where hair will touch (otherwise hair will get dirty again as soon as I wash it)
>wash hair again (need to to get all the grease off, shampooing once doesn't cut it)
>move hair out the way again
>wash entire upper body
>wash upper legs
>wash lower legs
>lift right foot up to wash it
>without putting it back down on the shower floor, step out onto clean towel
>repeat with left foot
It's a real fucking ordeal.
This means something like "furthermore I can't meet beautiful women outside of dreams" right
>You make it sound like that's supposed to be a lot of work
>actually it only takes 10-15 minutes to do those things
45-60 for me.
If I rush, I can finish in 30 minutes.
Not him, but DOJG is pretty useful. If those things can be found on DOJG then anon's comments is spot on. Unless you know for a fact that they can't be found there you have no ground to criticize his comment.
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).
>10k doesn't do you any good.

Almost there, senpai.
Is this 3級 the equivalent JLPT level or something? If so, I'm almost at 2級 then.
>if there was more shit than bleach to do so with
Not sure what you're talking about there's an endless amount of raw stuff on the net to be found. Also why are you so angry? I offered you sincere advice.
>I feel stuck whenever I do want to read something.
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.
Don't you have anything you want to read? Why are you learning the language?
It's okay, I was asking for it. Thanks though.
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.
I'm learning the language because I'd like to be able to visit Japan and maybe go as part of the JET scheme but holy fuck pipeline dreams from the wrong side of a fence.
>learning a language for wikipedia articles
If you're actually looking for some pointers try to keep every kanji the same size. 日、手、書、習 seem a bit too narrow compared to 今、練. Also that れ is pretty bad, but otherwise it is very readable
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.
Oh, you're that blogging faggot from earlier. Pretty pathetic that you're bragging about something like that on an anonymous animu image board. Enjoy living a shallow life and feeling empty inside friendo.
>go in depth learning the kanji he presents
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.
>you're that blogging faggot from earlier.
Huh? No, I was pointing to him as evidence that it's possible.
>Enjoy living a shallow life and feeling empty inside friendo.
Wow, this is a lot of projecting. Try not to be so judgmental to people you hardly know.
It's not that I'm not interested; I feel that it's more impractical and less fulfilling for the effort of reading through.
I guess I should stick to it. Thanks.
You can if you
I'm not projecting, he actually said that he felt empty inside. He's only going to make himself miserable by treating other people as a means to an end.
>he actually said that he felt empty inside
Yeah, because the girl is going back to her home country, not because he used her as a means to an end or whatever.
I-I'm not that guy, I just said that.
He knew it wasn't going to turn into anything but he did it anyway and bragged about it online. It's just a bit pathetic and not worth learning Japanese for if you're only going to use it for that.
I'm sure it was a great experience, too. I sometimes feel empty after I go home from hanging out with friends and am alone but that doesn't mean I don't ever want to hang out with people.
>It's just a bit pathetic
Eye of the beholder etc.
Those aren't really the same things though. You can't compare them. Anyway I'm done with this conversation since it's off-topic. In the future you all should take that kind of blogging elsewhere.
>In the future you all should take that kind of blogging elsewhere.
Hey, we're free to talk about why we're learning Japanese here. Don't be overzealous in your anti-blogging crusade.
Is this where I should be at after two years of mostly half-assedness?
>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.
And if you can read things comfortably then you can certainly get N2 on the JCAT.
>Is this where I should be at
How do you expect to give any reasonably answer to this question without some method of comparison?
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.
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.
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.
Seriously though, you're on /a/, stop being a faggot. There's probably tons of anime you'd like anyway.
I've just heard it mentioned here numerous times. Is it not very good? What would you recommend, then?
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.
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.
That's not me. I'm watching 20 shows this season
>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.
>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?
