I love the concept of 「閃く」litterally it means "to flash, figuratively it corresponds to the concept of a light bulp when you get an idea.
What I love about it, is that both of these two completely different languages perceive the concept of finally figuring something out as a light, and it's no wonder because that's exactly what it feels like!
To learn a language is to learn about life, I feel.

>>133799922
I did core10k, which has a ton of N1 vocab.
I also made ~1000 cards from reading stuff (there's some overlap because I sometimes added a card that was included later in core10k)

A few months ago, I got a N1 vocab deck and deleted everything I already knew. That left only 300 cards in that deck.

Structure your cards in such a way that you can quickly get the easy ones out of the way such as by using recognition cards with the expression/word in big font at the top. If you don't get it within a few seconds (5-6 secs are more than enough for most phrases) then look at the hints that you put below such as example usage. If you still don't get it then spend more time looking up examples using the word. 習うより慣れろ

>How long does it take for the average /djt/er to be able to pass N1?

Six or seven years of casual everyday exposure (reading VNs, watching anime).
Did some hardcore vocab study before the test but that felt like a complete waste of time. Spending that time reading would have been a much better use of it.

You will not have time to think about or analyze grammar patterns or vocab when you do the test.

I would consider taking the test when you can read mid tier difficulty VN/LNs/manga with decent fluidity, without tools.
When you can watch most anime (Hard anime would be Fafner or GiTS) with no subs without problems understanding.

Being able to read OreImo fluently would put you about N2 level.

Can someone help with what she's saying in the left panel?

>二人 みたり な 変人は やかな
I think it would translate to something along the lines of "not the weirdos the two of you are seeing(?)"

At the time being referred to, yes.

The context is that Amane (the character talking, with the blue hair) snuck into Kaori's bedroom last night. Kaori woke up to find Amane in her bed.

>>133805275
Can you give a rough translation so I can see how you're getting that meaning please?

>>133805283
Isn't 目が覚める an expression/set phrase meaning "to wake up"? I've heard characters saying it all the time in anime and it's always just translated as "wake up" (or woke up if past tense). Jisho lists the whole phrase as meaning "to awaken".
>>
>>133805463
>Isn't 目が覚める an expression/set phrase meaning "to wake up"?
In pure English, yes, in Japanese, well, the 目 is right there.

"Having woken up a little, I came to notice that I was on a single bed together with Kaori-chan"

>>133805600

What's the dumbest thing you do in regards to studying Japanese, aside from not reading more?

For me, if I spend too long on a card in anki, I hit ctrl Z and do it again to cut off time from my "amount studied" to seem like I was going faster. It doesn't help me at all and actually just makes it seem like I study less than I do, so it's completely dumb, but I feel compelled to get FAST SPEEDS so I do it.

Is there any meaningful difference between written Japanese (including scripts spoken by Seiyuus) and "spontaneous" Japanese? I mean, naturally, an urban youth in Tokyo will speak a lot differently from a narrative text, but I just mean in general. Is it important to watch unscripted variety shows and perhaps let's plays (dudes on youtube/nico just talking and talking unscripted) to expose oneself to spontaneous Japanese?

This way you won't be able to watch yourself get faster; I feel bad for you.

..and I'm probably way slower than you at 3.5 cards per minute.
>>
>>133808305
This is just speculation, but my guess is if you listen to "spontaneous" Japanese, you'll get better at understanding it more quickly than if you just consumed "conventional" media. My opinion is that it depends on whether you value that sort of comprehension (i.e. will you be needing to understand "spontaneous" Japanese in the near future, or can you afford to slowly work your way there just by over time, getting better at general listening?)
>>
>>133808369
>3.5 cards per minute
Don't you do any speaking?
I always say the word out loud, listen to the answer+ sentence, then say the entire example sentence myself

It really would be nice if anki had a category where it wouldn't add that time after showing the backside
>>
>>133808369
>This way you won't be able to watch yourself get faster; I feel bad for you.
I'm already MAX SPEED, 28 cards per minute /2.1 seconds per card. That's the problem. I go through 28 card in a minute, and then card 29 roadblocks me for 30 seconds so I think "holy shit I could have done like 14 cards in this time I have to go back in time and fix this so my stats maintain their MAX SPEED".

Ultimately even if I didn't do this I'd end up with 3~s per card just because it isn't that often that a card roadblocks me. So it's not like it's a big deal. But, I do it anyway...

It's harder than Japanese. I'm not even memeing. It's 100x harder to speak without sounding like an absolute retard. I can pronounce Japanese perfectly fine. It's a joke. I'll never, ever speak Norwegian with a hint of a Norwegian accent.

Japanese just has a silly "r" and pitch. Norwegian has a silly "r" (well, more than 1 actually depending on your dialect), a bunch of other sounds that's not available in my native language, 50 gazillion dialects, a huge lack of native content to listen to, and some "rhythm/melody" thing they got going on that they don't seem to be aware of.

Greit nokk at norsk er vanskelig å uttale, men det er uendelig mye lettere å lære seg norsk (enn japansk) som engelsktalende, da grammatikken er klin lik engelsk.

Men hvis jeg var deg ville jeg ikke tenkt så mye på uttalen, vi har så mange dialekter her til lands allerede, samt et hav av innvandrere som snakker gebrokken norsk, at vi har veldig høy toleranse for rar uttale.

Hva angår "native content" kan jeg anbefale deg å sjekke ut tv2 sumo, nrk har også et nett-TV opplegg. Det er nokk en del færre norskproduserte serier og slikt enn med japansk, men hvis du finner deg en norsk venn kan han sikkert komme med anbefalinger.

Could very well be, lots of Norwegians have decent English knowledge but next to no speaking experience (outside of class) and would jump at the opportunity to practice with a native.

>>133821983
Yeah it didn't catch a few weird words, "gebrokken" is probably archaic, "nokk" is a typo, "grammar is shut like English." this is due to a colloquialism etc.

But in general machine translation is very good at English <-> Norwegian because the grammar is so similar, and in most cases you can get away with just swapping out the words.

There's a metric shit ton to learn/memorize. That's a little bit more than "just learn the basics"
>>
>>133823346
There's really not, you need to set your standards a bit higher. Read more and put what you learn into practice and you'll see that most of the grammar just falls into place as you get used to it. There's very little actual memorization to be done, unlike vocab.
>>
>>133823346
Tae kim isn't really extensive at all, anon. I know all of it and still stumble across grammar I don't know on the daily. Additionally going through tae kim should take you a couple of months, it'd be naive to think you'd be proficient in Japanese grammar with just that.

>>133825109
Those words are supposed to be impossibly fucking hard to remember, they are part of a gaijin barrier the government imposed on the language to keep people from learning Japanese. A more famous example is what's called "kanji", where they picked random obscure hieroglyphs from thousands of years ago that have to be sprinkled in between sentences.

Can someone help me proofread to see if I got the Japanese translation correctly? I'm trying to translate the gist of this message to Japanese for a request to a doujin artist.

Original Message:
>I am a big fan of your work. Recently while combing through your site I found that you published a doujin of Renne from Sora no Kiseki with the title Extra32. I am a major fan of Renne and would like to read this doujin, but it is sadly completely impossible to purchase online from what I have seen. I was hoping you might have some extra copies to sell or knowledge of where I could find one. Thank you for your time.

My current translation:
>こにちは。私はあなたの軌跡シリーズの同人誌が大好きです。Extra32を買って読むが欲しいですけど、この同人誌はどこでもインタネットの店で売り切れしまった。レンは大好きので、是非Extra32を買うことがよかったです。現在、あなたはもっとExtra32を売っていますか?どうかお返事をよろしくお願い致します。

Literally first week of Japanese level stuff.
時 is time
今 means "now" or "current"
年 is year
月 is moon, but is used for month
週 is week
Everything else is compounds.

Seriously, if you can't remember stuff that simple, you really can't learn Japanese.
>>
>>133826678
>._.
Stop.
And give up. No seriously. If you can't learn this level 1 shit in three days just give up. You won't be able to handle the rest.
>>
>>133826678
That shit's baby tier.
You might literally have some kind of problem, like dyslexia, which would make this literally impossible.
>>
I don't think he's retarded, I think he's just not focusing at all and then coming here to attentionwhore. I mean that would make him retarded but you know.
>>
>>133826678
今 + another word for time means this time, so
今年 - This year
今月 - This month
今週 - This week
今日 - This day
Simple stuff.

分かる、帰る、入る、出る、出来る、来る and 行く are all extremely common and versatile verbs.

入る、出る are opposites of eachother
行く、来る as well

出来る is 出る and 来る together.

水曜日、木曜日 is a part of the weekdays series of words.

If you can't learn all of them at once, try to break them down into logical groups and components, focus on making sure you know one, then two, then three etc.

For problem words, you can't just press 2 and hope they stick to your brain somehow, make a concentrated effort on committing them to your memory.
>>
>>133826409
Do RTK.
Any retard can learn Japanese with persistence, just look at the scanlation community.
>>
>>133826741
No. Don't bother the author.
Read the buyfag guide and learn how to buy secondhand doujinshi. If they had extra they'd be putting it on booth.pm, if it's not there they don't care/don't have any left. If it's a recent doujinshi and it had mail orders, they'll most likely put it back up for sale in the next event.

But it sounds awkward, I think just 買いたい is fine.

>を買うことがよかった

売っていませんか?もしくは、まだ売れてりるウェブショップを知っていますか?
Not 100% what the best way to refer to an online store is.

For the last sentence I'm sure there's some set phrase that would fit better, like お返事お待ちしています?

I'm intermediate at best so take these corrections with a grain of salt.

So I found a source that has old JLPT past papers from 1991-2007. While I was doing JLPT N3 practice tests and then realized that according to wikipedia the N3 is equivalent to today's N4. The current N3 is "in between the old N3 and N2". Can someone give me some insight of how much this is true?

I thought I can Japanese, but then I realize I'm not Japanese. Can I still Japanese
>>
>>133827521
>Can I still Japanese

And yeah I'll include the original English message as well. I've looked at the buyfag guide for used doujin shops, but non of them have it in stock, so I'll just have to bother the author for it.
>>
>>133827587
>That is not helpful information
It's helpful in the sense that you better fucking sit down and learn them, you little bitch.

>Leave + come = able to??
It doesn't have to make perfect sense, it's just something to use to memorize them, like a mnemonic.
>>
>>133827086
>コピー誌
Yeah, these things are pretty much event exclusive. It's a bunch of printed paper stapled together. I doubt they'd have any, and even if they did, I don't think they'd want to sell you one.
So like I said, read the guide and figure out how to get one. If you need help getting it, after having read the guide of course, ask in the buyfag thread.
>>
>>133827610
>レンは大好きので、是非Extra32をが買えたら嬉しい。

>>133829214

NYR is the dumbest shit. People almost seem to view it as a magic spell that will make them shed their old lazy habits and awaken their true potential. Or perhaps more accurately put, it's a spell that will summon a training montage where they have a brief flash of scenes where they do things that are related to accomplishing their goals, and then they're shaking hands with a Japanese businessman at their new job in Tokyo, speaking flawless, native-level Japanese, with the businessman telling them how their Japanese is better than they'd ever expect from a foreigner. Of course, after a few weeks go by and no magic training montage has occurred, they return to their old lifestyle.

There's no magic spell that will accomplish your goals for you. If you're serious, don't wait until January 1st to get started. Start now. Literally right now. As in, stop what you're doing and go learn the kana. And be prepared for the long haul. That day with the Japanese businessman might indeed be in your future, but it's a long ways off, especially if he's being honest.

What the fuck are you doing, anon?

Also, 2k isn't enough to read kid's manga without stopping. You will find things quite a lot easier than you did before the 2k, though.

Or at least call it quits for the moment. Sometimes, I'll feel like shit, but a few hours later, I'll feel focused and full of energy.
