I think swagger's a confidence. It's a confidence of you knowing that you work hard for your success. A lot of times, you can't develop swagger if you haven't worked hard to succeed.

No, that's what happens when people do RTK1/3 and then don't pay attention to readings each kanji has at all when learning vocab. Not sure how you'd mix the readings up like that.

This is why I almost exclusively read VNs for vocab. For me, the grammar early on has been the only stressful and dull experience. If I woke up to a 500+ review count, I'd kill myself. Or delete the deck.

Seems like writing down kanjis has fucked with my brain, when I look down on my piece of paper to right some kanji-tachi, sometimes i just get an urge to shake my head/eyes slightly. Don't know how to properly explain it, has anyone here experienced anything similar?

Burnout. Don't review your writing while doing spaced repetition and don't write cards you've already written in that day.
>>
>>138554729
If it takes me a while to remember I use hard, and if I fail it later then that's how it is. A few more seconds isn't "ages", even though it can pile up. But I get distracted often, so I think the time spent seems longer than it actually is.
For "slightly wrong", I sometimes just fail it too, but it depends on how important the nuance is, and also whether I forget the actual meaning or just the translation.

I'm sure your way works fine, but I prefer taking longer to remember some words since I think it can help process them better.
>>
>>138555010
Were you trying to say that you were envious?
>>
>>138555025
That's definitely not burnout and I don't write down the kanjis while I'm doing anki or kanjis that I've written previously.
>>
>>138554962
おはよう、名無しくん!
>>
>>138555084
Yes... like he has a nice pen and I wish I had that pen.

Then I looked up the word on wwwjdic and the example sentence makes me believe my first sentence was backwards.
>(1) あなたがとても羨ましい。 I envy you so much
>>
>>138555146
In that sentence the subject is implied. You could put a 私は in front and have essentially the same meaning. If you say 私はペンが羨ましいです then you are saying I am envious of the pen.
>>
>>138555207
i.e. not envious of you because of your pen, but envious of the pen itself.
>>
>>138555261
...which wouldn't make sense, right?
Oh! So in the example sentence, the 私は is implied.
私はあなたがとても羨ましい
Therefore, my first sentence was correct...

What's a good "secondary" vocabulary study method to use alongside Anki? thing about Anki is I don't like messing with custom study and possibly screwing up the retention system it has going on, so I tend to stop when it tells me to.

So you've been mining for 1 month. The point I was going to drive (hence the question) was that once you pass 10k cards the mining really drops off quite significantly unless you intentionally seek challenging material (which is arguable in terms of relevance in terms of foreign language learning, i.e. at some point you'll be learning words that natives themselves don't know which I personally consider to be a paradigm shift from foreign language learning to... something else). In that sense, there's no need for despair. Rather than thinking, "I mined 300 words today FML", think "I will inevitably mine 10,000 words"

Write all the words you're unfamiliar on a seperate reference sheet and read the article a few times referring to that.

Also really helps to write your definitions in Japanese; eventually we're trying to approach Japanese as a language, not a Japanese -> English tool

You translated things in your head when you started, too, you dumb autist. It's an inevitability when you're taking what you know about human communication from your native language and applying it to the new one. This same skill is why we don't take 18+ years to reach an adult's level of understanding of a new tongue, like a native child with no such preexisting knowledge does.

How do you make the transition from translating in your head to cutting out the middle man? By getting used to the new language enough that you don't need to consciously think about sentence organization and what it means. Do you do this in anki or by reading about linguistics? No, that's retarded. The only way to surpass the point where you need your own language as a middle man is to consume the new language in its native environment.

He's being unnecessarily insulting (likely due to being an autist), but he's right this time. And at least he's talking about Japanese.

You already have a system for describing the concepts of the world -- your native language. Why would you abandon that? You'd be reduced to learning like a baby does.
>>
>>138560644

Because nothing short of lots of reading and listening will get you over the "translating in your head" hill. That's mostly a symptom of not having an intuitive grasp on grammar, which is built via exposure to native material.
>>
>>138560686
Converting words in japanese to words in english is not the same thing as consciously translating the entire sentence.

I'll admit that I just saw the typical "translating" posts and made assumptions about what preceded it.

Yeah, in this case, he just needs to do anki. He should still suck it up and read, too. I know that it's a chore, but if learning Japanese were always easy and fun and only took a week to learn, everybody on /a/ would know it.
>>
>>138560205
I haven't spent any time trying to learn Korean, but as I understand it its grammar is very similar to Japanese and it has a much simpler writing system which, once you know it, you can read any Korean sentence(key word: read, nothing about understanding).

The most efficient course to become fluent in Japanese with about 1 year per step:
1. University classes (Japanese 101/102)
2. Genki
3. Rosetta Stone (good for immersion!)
4. Memorize radicals
5. Do RTK
6. WaniKani
7. Read Tae Kim and start core10k after deleting the first 6000 cards (which you should know after completing WaniKani)
8. Congratulations! You are fluent in Japanese.

Well, I'm a slow learner, unlike you.
I like to spend time learning what each radical means, what alternate writings they have, the stroke order (as i've heard that learning the strokes of radicals make writing kanji a lot easier and less time consuming).. I just assumed 3 months is an appropriate amount of time for learning about radicals, but I still feel obligated enough to keep doing the reps anyway to keep my perfect day record.

Should I start skipping days now that I've already covered it?

Before dropping them in Anki, make sure you can write them without looking them up, and to make sure you don't forget them you can give them little names as mnemonics. For example I call the 土 radical "jesus cross". It helps remember it and makes it much easier to write kanji-tachi! Try it out and let me know how it goes!!

>top recommended method to gain vocabulary
Read more. The more you read, the less you will need to consult dictionary but it will still happen every now and then.

I'd say a secondary method to gain vocab is by studying kanji one by one. For example, if you never see a word before, for example 公海 but if you know the meaning of 公 and 海, you don't have to check dictionary to get the approximate meaning. Contexts of what you're reading will also help you with understanding.

I never google what "mundane" means, or "castigate", or even the definition difference between "ravine, gorge, and canyon" but I get the approximate meaning.

Though you to remember that there are many exceptions in japanese. 当て字 words probably are not parseable from their 熟語.

If you haven't found the game difficult so far, I assume you're skipping the kaijuu fights? I recommend trying them, if you leave them too late they'll just be a breeze and boring. If you get them at the right level where they're a challenge but just doable, it's really really fun, and it forces you to actually think about skill/stat/item distributions instead of breezing through everything, which in turn makes the entire game more fun.
The "sell me" items have no use except being sold as far as I know. Same goes for items with strictly worse stats than ones you own.

So when starting out with Anki and dealing with Kanji, am I supposed to put focus on just learning associating a meaning to a Kanji, or should I also be memorizing the onyomi/kunyomi of all of them ? I gotta say, I'm having a fairly easy time just knowing what a Kanji or two Kanji actually mean, but the actual pronunciation I fuck up 80% of the time and mix them up with other ones, kinda slowing me down a lot. Like if I saw "十日" while reading I'd know exactly what it says, but fucked if I'd know how to actually pronounce it. I have no interest in verbally speaking this btw, just want to be able to read my weeb games and manga

>But what if you were watching your chinese cartoons

That's just it, I do not watch Anime at all. Yeah...I know, what am I doing here, right?

I'm only interested in foreign games and manga. That's why I stated at the end that I don't have an interest in speaking it since it makes no difference if I can comprehend it audibly. Reading is my only interest. Should that ever change obviously I'd have to be able to know pronunciations, if not I'd have no idea what was said out loud, like you stated.

Besides, while it makes no difference since it's not my thing, I'm sure pretty much every Japanese media has subtitles for deaf folk, I would assume.
>>
>>138570340
>>138570441
Personally I think it's a bad idea to modulate learning like that.

Why not just learn all the skills you eventually want to acquire at the same time? That way they grow together and interconnectedly instead of as separate pieces that you stitch together.

For pronunciation it's more than enough for you to just make notice of what part of the pronunciation is coming from which kanji, and that's it. No need to think any deeper about it and it doesn't take up that much more effort but it'll be well worth it in the long run.
>>
>>138570340
Langauge is verbal in nature and the brain associates sounds with concepts, meaning that if you keep a barrier between the concept and the sound when learning Japanese, it is only going to be harder for your brain to "feel" the language, as so many anons like to shit post about.

>>138570441
>Reading, writing.
Is going to be extremely limited if you do not form a proper inner monologue. Reading this post right now your brain is "reading" this and your vocal chords and "speaking" regions of your brain are activating. Humans aren't computers and we need some medium for the concepts to be transported, which is the spoken/verbal aspect of the language. Even Braille lanugages and sign language use this fundamental system of assigning a set of symbolic versions of phonetics to bumps and movements for the latter.

Without learning the Japanese version of what you are doing with English right now, your Japanese will forever be limited by the speed at which you can translate memorised chunks of Japanese you associate as units, into English words, then English concepts, then back into a Japanese structural framework.
For a computer analogy it is sort of like trying to play video games and rendering pixels without any onboard VRAM and having to use system RAM. It is stuttering, laggy mess because it is simply too slow and too far away from the processing unit. By introducing all of those extra steps when parsing Japanese, as I previously mentioned, you are forcing your brain in a way similar to the video card with no onboard VRAM: you aren't going to be able to keep up and the "rendering" speed is going to be forever limited no matter how strong your "processing unit", or amount of Japanese concept units -let's not call them words, words include a verbal aspect- you have memorised English.

TL;DR: it seems like an extremely elaborate means of ascribing English keywords to Japanese words and expecting to be able to reach an acceptable adult reading level. It won't
>>
>>138570769
As someone who also only cares about VNs, you should learn pronunciations. There are a lot of times words will be written in hiragana, such as when a child is speaking (especially relevant if you like lolige), for effect, or simply out of arbitrary artistic choice. Furthermore there are sometimes scenes in VNs without subtitles, such as OPs or climactic narration, and not being able to understand these can ruin the entire game for you.

Are you just starting? You know 十日 because 十 is a simple 指事文字 and 日 is also a simple 象形文字.

While it's true that most of japanese kanji are 形声文字 and you might be able to get away with what you're doing right now (debatably), but when you encountered 転注文字 you're going to get screwed. A simple 転注文字 is 楽 which can mean "music", "enjoy", and "comfy", all three pronounced differently.
>>
>>138570806
>>138570894

I guess what confuses the shit out of me is that I know that 一 means "one" and 日 means "day" and if I see 一日 I know it's talking about one day or first day of the month. Alright, easy, no problem.

I could also easily memorize that "one" is pronounced "いち" and that "day" is pronounced ”ひ” So I would have assumed that "first day" would be "いちひ” but no, it's pronounced "ついたち"

Like how the fuck did we go from ichi and hi being joined to make tsuitachi. It just adds so much shit to memorize when I already know all their meanings and could decipher them in text with ease.

>>138570983
That's honestly the best point you could bring up, if they happen to use them in Hiragana and I only know the Kanji, I'd be fucked. This would be rare occurrences, but it can happen I agree. This is just so slow learning double vocabulary for every Kanji instead of just knowing the meaning.

So how do I do this effectively then. I reset the Anki deck fresh. I need to memorize the Kanji by appearance, and also how it's said in Hiragana? is there an effective way to remember them / any tick or pattern or anything with translating Kanji to Hiragana or is it just random memorization ?

>>
>>138571223
It goes both ways. Just as you can't always predict the pronunciation, you can't always predict the meaning of the words from their kanji.
So if oddball pronunciations throw you off, then you'll be thrown off by the choice of kanji in a lot of words too later on.

The point is, just cutting out pronunciation and learning only meanings (vocabulary meaning) isn't going to save you as much time as you think. Might as well learn pronunciation too.
and if your plan was actually just to learn "kanji meanings" then sure that would save you a ton of time, but you also won't be able to read shit.

Not that guy, but is there any way to incorporate Kanjidamage into my Anki core2k/6k learning somehow? The thing I like about the core deck is obvious, it's the Kanji I should be focusing on, but I memorize them just based off their appearance with no real logic to it other than blatant memorization. With Kanjidamage I learn them based off radicals and those goofy mnemonics that they use, they REALLY help me retain Kanji.
>>
>>138572184
The wiki takes an overly pessimistic stance.

>without prior knowledge

Whoever wrote it really underestimates this. Native speakers and to some extent people who have lived in Japan for some time will no doubt have subconsciously recorded readings for names and locations in their brains. Together with their knowledge of kanji and radicals, it isn't that unbelievable that a native would be able to guess how to read a character.

Unless they've never seen the kanji in their life of course. But that would be extremely rare.
>>
>>138572256
I've never used KD, but I've always focused on remembering only the meaning and reading when doing Core.
>>
>>138572283
What do you mean only the meaning and reading? sorry it's like 5am and I'm ded. You have to memorize the Kanji itself just based on looks, don't you? that's what KD helps me with since it trivializes that with radicals.

When I look at 波打ち際 I remember that it means "water's edge" and it's pronounced なみうちぎわ

I'm probably confusing you since I didnt do KD
>>
>>138572256
Personally I just memorize their appearance based off of pronunciation.

I know that doesn't sound like it works, but it does for me, really well.
For example say I see something like 制, I'll just look at it and say せい over and over for a while until the character 制 actually starts to look like a せい to me.
Then the next time I see it "せい" just pops into my head like magic. I guess everyone's different though, but this works much better for me than other mnemonics or radicals and stuff.
>>
>>138572257
Sure whatever. I'm not taking side on the issue, I'm just giving answer to that one anon.
>>
>>138572475
>When I look at 波打ち際 I remember that it means "water's edge"
Not confusing me, I do get what you mean, but how exactly do you remember that "波打ち際" specifically means what it means? just based on how it looks visually? or something else? any system in place you use or it's just visual memorization?
>>
>>138572256
There is a KD deck somewhere I think. Or just make a new deck for KD one kanji after one kanji. Maybe it will help, I have nothing helpful to offer, sorry.
>>
>>138572569
It's appreciated, thanks
>>138572491
I guess I could try it that way and see how it goes, just trying to make the Kanji task as easy as possible since I do have to learn so many, may as well do it as efficiently as possible
>>
>>138572563
I can already recognise all the kanji in that so when I see 波 and that it's connected in a 4 word phrase I know that the word is 波打ち際 which I already know means "water's edge".

It's way more intuitive in this case because the words actually have meaning, but in other cases like ateji like 藻掻く usually I follow an order of:

1. Establish the connection that 藻掻くis read as もがく
2. Recall that もがく means 'struggle, writh'

Since the kanji itself do not give any hint to what the word as a whole means.
>>
>>138572563
Not him, but once you know the kanji meanings better remembering words will be easier. So for 波打ち際、
>波 = waves
>打ち = runs up to, hits
>際 = edge, side
If you know these meanings, you can infer an overall meaning of "edge where it hits the waves" = edge of the water. And you can pick up kanji meanings simply through seeing them in different vocabulary words with similar meanings.

>I guess I could try it that way and see how it goes
Well then just to elaborate a bit, you don't have to think about any of the other pronunciations you've encountered for the word. When I'm trying to get it engrained into my memory I just focus on that one pronunciation for the current word and that's it.

Your subconscious still knows what word it's a part of and it just works. For me at least. It gave me a huge increase in retention rate, so I'd say if you don't notice it working right away then it's probably just not your style and you could look for a method that works better for you.

A few days ago I posted a modified verb conjugation deck that I was using
https://desustorage.org/a/thread/138295737/#138300640
and decided to make it a little more flexible and add some of the field data which was left out of the posted version. This is more of a proof of concept, if anything. The data set I am working with contains around 1000 dictionary form verbs, taken from the Core10k deck mostly, but that is still a WIP, not fit for generic usage.

A mega link, for archival purposes. The anon who looked at the other one may find this version a lot more practical.

It is rather similar to the shared deck.
>>
>>138576292
>Isn't that self refuting?
Possibly. I mean that it seems backwards to study hundreds of individual words when the general rule is readily available. This looks more like a vocab deck. I guess it's wrong to imply that it's not useful, but I'd say its use streches beyond conjugation practice. Nevermind, actually.
>Anyway, is time really that much of an issue if we have enough of it to idle away on 4chan?
You can't spend enough time on 4chan.
>>

It's both, really. Though if you wanted to use it purely for conjugation drills you could, it would just mean rearranging the fields and not displaying others. I like my study material to be flexible in case I want to use it for a different purpose latter on.

When you decide to start reading.
You don't have to go over some kind of threshold to be able to learn from consuming media.
A basic understanding of grammar (from Tae Kim's guide or elsewhere) is all you need and you can learn the rest from consuming media.

I would say it's really bad for reading by itself, you just can't be fucked to sit and read a wall of text in that state.

Get some anime songs you like, google lyrics for them (in Japanese, of course) and read that shit as the song goes. Works like magic with 大麻, feels like kanji pop into your head.

I read VNs on the side all that time, and I learned more from that than the 1800-ish vocab from Anki while also having fun. The only thing I don't regret studying using Anki is radicals.

TL;DR: Never ever using Anki for vocab again.

Woah, LNs are really easy. I was afraid of trying to read one, because I still struggle with VNs that are heavy on narration, and I figured books would be even heavier on narration than that. But I picked up ZnT, which I've wanted to read for a while. It is indeed heavy on narration, but the narration is so simple. Rather than a voice of god with all kinds of flowery descriptive and abstract language, it feels more in the voice of some guy telling you what happened to him the other day.

It's also really comfortable to read when formatted for vertical reading in Firefox with rikaisama and anki autoimport. Even easier to mine words than with VNs.

Something to keep in mind if you've been too intimidated to read raw text like I was.

That's why you read the introduction to the first book which explains exactly what it is for. Natural selection is far too selective these days.

Where can I find notes added with anki real time import ? There's nothing in Browse -> added:1

In the deck you mined them to?

Anyone got a good anki core 2k/6k/10k deck? One with just the vocab word in kanji and then the reading and meaning? I've tried starting my own but it's just too much work not having at least some base so I can just start doing reps right now.

I recommend the WaniKani(tm) deck. But for best results, be sure to purchase a WaniKani(tm) subscription!

>spend 5 days downloading VN at speed of 10kb/s
>don't enjoy it at all
Honestly this is making me consider giving up Japanese. There is just such a high number of VNs I don't like and I started learning for VNs so what's the point. By giving up I mean I've been focusing 5 hours a day reading and 20-40 new cards in anki for a long time, all to improve Japanese, maybe it' stime to dial that down and just rely on wiping out vocab hell over a long period of time. No more intensive studying. I mean seriously, what the fuck. Too many bad VNs.

good riddance!
>>
>>138584917
That's why havinga collection of vns in the CoR, on mega, would be ideal. You may have spent only half an hour downloading instead of days so even if you didn't like it, it would be no real loss.
>>
>>138585009
If the COR were to have a catalogue wide enough to contain the VN I read, obscure as it is, then it would be several terabytes large and would be shot the fuck down, probably unable to be re-uploaded speedily too.
>>
>>138584917
Another one bites the dust.

When I try to learn new words should I focus on just recognizing what the characters mean and learn the pronunciations later, or would it just be a waste of time to go back and do it later?
>>
>>138585052
You wouldn't put everything in one fucking .rar, you dummy.
>>
>>138585083
In case it wasn't obvious from my post I can read things and watch anime pretty easily, so it's not like I failed to learn Japanese.
>>138585160
Of course not.
>Google doc page gets flagged by copyright holders
>Google informs mega.co.nz of all the illegally hosted material and deletes page
>mega.co.nz deletes all the illegal files
And now you've got to upload all the files again and replace all the links. It'd be a mess. Do not forget that the mega terms of services explicitly disallows uploading of copyrighted material.
>>
>>138585231
And then Google and Mega go out for a drink? Are you fucking retarded?

>>138585255
DDL links dying and getting deleted is not a ridiculous idea anon. It happens all the time.

>>138584917
Get an animebytes account and download from seedboxes instead of the guy uploading from his cellphone in the middle of the Atlantic who apparently seeds every VN on nyaa
>>
>>138585337
I applied for animebytes and did not get a response. Pretty sure it's full now. Such is life.

Just finished going through Genki 1 in my university course. Know the grammar, vocabulary, and Kanji from this book pretty well. In terms of "getting ahead" or accelerating my learning, should I be tackling like KanjiDamage in Anki to learn more kanji, or should I be learning more vocabulary, both, or even neither?
>>
>>138585052
>and would be shot the fuck down
Why? It has something like a TB of content at the moment and it's been like that for ages.
>>
>>138585512
Are you struggling with memorizing and identifying kanji and is it getting in your way when learning vocab? Do KD.
Are kanji a piece of cake? Carry on with vocab.
Is it a bit of both? Do both alongside each other.

>>138585712
My logic is thus. Neither google nor Mega support illegally hosted copyright material. Therefore, the only reason they're still there is because no one has pointed it out to them and had a real person recognize it. Thus, it's only a matter of time until it's deleted. Not to mention it was hardly a two weeks or so ago that mega.co.nz updated their TOS to be specifically hard on copyrighted material. The larger it gets, the harder it will fall. I mean, you've got to realize that none of the CoR is hosted on anyone here's own server. The CoR spreadsheet on nocazalal is directly sourced from google and all the DDLs are hosted on mega. Both of these entities can easily delete the material and both have no reason not too. It's a ticking time bomb, that only has a fuse at all because Japan is far away.

I'm not even confident that if a single person sent a ton of emails to Japanese media companies / mega / vn devs that the CoR would survive. If I recall, the game spreadsheet had games from major companies like Leaf and Visual Arts.

However, it is undeniable that the CoR has existed for over a year without major action being taken against it (though google has deleted the spreadsheet if I recall, and mega links periodically die). For that reason, I do not claim that my above reasoning is universally true and everyone who disagrees is wrong. I, personally, am convinced by the reasoning above that the CoR (especially if the game page continues to grow) will be fully deleted by mega at some point in the future. If you disagree that's fine. The fact it hasn't been deleted yet is compelling evidence that it won't be deleted, absolutely.

Hey guys, I did RTK but I can't read this word. It's spelled snake-house-ninja. Can someone help?

It means "Snake House Ninja," i.e., a ninja of the Snake clan.

How can people work for 8 hours a day but not do Anki for 8 hours a day?
>>
>>138586467

If I set the threshold to 10, then 1/8th of the deck will become leeches immediately. I have some cards with over 40 lapses.

What do I do with them after they're leeched?
>>
>>138586555
Slaving at Anki is hardly fun, reading is also a better use of time.
>>
>>138586555
You'd get a lot more out of 8 hours of reading.

>>138586555

I work for 9 hours a day and it's easier than 30 minutes in anki.
