So I guess I’ll start from the beginning; utter frustration and despair. I was attempting to read Full metal alchemist, typically rated as a pretty difficult read for learners and I learned the hard way why that is. I took on the challenge like I did with Yotsubato and tried to learn everything and then re-read the chapter after my vocab caught up. But nothing would stick, nothing made sense, and nothing helped. So I took my vocab list to my friend and asked him to look over it. It was pretty obvious to him why I was having trouble. The words were mostly written only, seldom used, or archaic words. Words I’m not going to be using well for a long time. That’s when I realized why it isn’t a good idea to try and read above your level. It’s not that it’s difficult; it’s that you’re never going to use it outside of reading that one subject or level of reading. It was difficult because those words didn’t fit in with my life or anything I would say or otherwise read. They truly had no meaning to me. That was my first lesson to getting better; I gave up on Full metal and returned to focus completely on finishing Yatsubato.

>>138863276


The next lesson was a bit harder to swallow. I have a friend who is also learning Japanese, who is actually pretty fluent. I ran into him and asked for help.He ended up helping me the best way he could. He took me to a snack bar. What happened next actually really pissed me off though. There he was having a normal conversation with the bar staff without missing a beat. But the envy wasn’t what ticked me off. It’s that I understood every word he said, and every word she said but if you asked me what they were talking about I’d have no clue what was going on. (WTF???)

Imagine meeting someone with 2/3rds the Vocab, half the Kanji and half the grammar knowledge but there they are speaking casually while you mumble out incoherent sentences. I was really annoyed at myself, that night proved that i already had the knowledge i was only missing the ability. It was a good crash course though; we ended up with two girls and we just talked all night. It really forced me to talk because the girl would just stare waiting for my garbled broken response, then she would figure out what I meant and kindly try to move the conversation on simply enough for me to understand. Going home that night I realized why my own progress was so stunted. My friends that I talk to regularly, all speak English. Any time the conversations slowed they switched to English to keep the conversation going. It was like this with all my friends. The conversation was more important than learning the language. That and since their English was much better than my Japanese, we would always gravitate to English. It was a real eye opener but I was kind of skeptical. So I tested it.

Whenever I see something written in a language I don't know I always avoid looking at it, especially if it's a doujin or whatever with Chinese subs. I feel like it'd mess with my brain and make me lose all of my Japanese gains if I'd look at it and try to understand it.

Just now I watched some Love Live video subbed in Portuguese and was trying hard to not look at the subs and just listen to them talking because I didn't want my brain to needlessly learn a language I don't give a shit about. Like they were counting and I refused to look at it.

Am I the only one?

I can see how it could be helpful, but the thing is translations (especially random amateur ones, the official ones can be bad too) aren't incredibly reliable all the time, so if the guy makes a mistake in translating and you do too, you'll read the mistranslated bit and then that'll reinforce your misunderstanding on how a piece of grammar works. Beyond using the Yotsuba reading pack for the first 2 volumes, I wouldn't really check with translations for actual content.

1) if you don't know the grammar or a word it's obvious and easy to look up
2) massive exposure will eventually iron out 99.9% of misunderstandings (so as a beginner its ok to misunderstand)
3) if you are misunderstanding, conversations and narration won't make logical sense in some way or another

What JLPT level/equivalent will core 2k/6k take me to? I'm only 25% into it, and I'm occasionally tackling N2 vocab, and want to take the test at the end of the year.

I can't decide whether I should go for 15/20/25 words a day. I feel like I learn well and quickly at 15, but I can finish the deck in under half a year if I jump back up to 25.
>>
>>138868874
Does it cover all N1 grammar or a couple of points? By the latter measure Tae Kim can be N1+ as well.
>>
>>138869002
Core is not in JLPT order, its kind of all over the place.
>>
>>138869057
There's a bit of an annoying order to it, I feel based off similar kanji/readings, though it is strange to learn "ramen" 1000+ words in. I don't mind too much, because it makes some days easier than others.

But yeah, I'm curious what "level" it will get me to. Even 25% of the way through, there's lots of words that I'd never even use living in Japan now (no one says 従来 for instance, and that came up fairly early) and some elicit shock from friends that hear me studying.

What are your reading tendencies? Do you ever read multiple things at once or do you adopt a "pump and dump" mentality?

I ask because I'm ~400 words mined into Hanahira and getting a bit tired of it. At first the novelty of actually being able to read native Japanese was exciting but now I am realizing it is a pretty damn run-of-the-mill SoL with yuri undertones and I'm not sure I want to read it all the way through.

Remember - the goal is to read COMPELLING content. "compelling" isn't something to ignore as linguist mumbo jumbo, it's important - read stuff that *COMPELLS* you to read it, stuff you're interested in. If you're not compelled to read something, drop it like an ugly baby.

Note: This applies to language learning, but not necessarily real life, pushing through things you don't feel compelled to do often is valuable. It's just that in terms of language learning, simple mass-exposure is arguably more important than quality of exposure and thus being compelled is very important (because to become fluent you need to expose yourself to a LOT of content and if it's not compelling content it'll be hell and take fucking forever due to procrastination, whereas if it's compelling content you'll have a good time gaining the requisite exposure).

You don't need "practice" at all you're just asking for everyone to translate your fucking porn. If you had bothered reading the OP you could've learned Hiragana in days and translate these stuff on your own. This is a blue board now fuck off.

My number of reviews is kind of getting out of hand for my current schedule. Will not doing new cards for a while help bring it down? Would it be better to just put a limit on the reviews than not doing new cards?
>>
>>138871050
そんな!
>>
>>138870997
It evens out at about new cards*10 because of SRS algorithm and then grows extremely slowly until you stop adding new cards.
>>
>>138870997

Grows logarithmically. Theoretically if you stuck to the same amount of cards/day for as long as you learn Japanese it would increase forever, but that doesn't happen since eventually you ease off on new cards as you know more and more. But like >>138871140 it typically "evens out" at about 10 times your new cards/day.
>>
>>138871175
>>138871140
That's a relief. I'm at 20 a day, so I guess that's why it's approaching 200 so quickly.
>>
>>138869002
I think there are JLPT decks on Ankiweb if that's really what you're looking for.

I'd say if you finish Core6k I'd say you would have somewhere between N3-N2 level vocab and kanji. Actually being able to read Japanese at N2 level, at speed, is a different thing from merely knowing all the vocab.

There are textbooks that teach to the JLPT, try getting a copy of Nihongo Sou Matome N3 (use google), specifically the Dokkai (reading comprehension) book, and working through that.

6 months maybe?
My problem was just that a lot of those kanji only appeared in 1 card so my mature retention was abysmal (I'd go months without seeing the kanji, and thus had no chance of getting the card right 1-2 months later). Furthermore, my young retention was poor due to having to learn a new kanji every other word, which made every single card harder. Right now I'm doing 40 new cards a day with 400 reviews, simply because I know all the kanji in the deck pretty well.

You mouseover the entry you want and import that. Works for most cases. If it's a case where the word has the same kanji but different readings, then you can try importing the hiragana, but you'll probably still have to manually copy and paste the definition and/or sentence into the card. Even then, it's a quick job to fix up and the vast majority of words don't require any manual work.

400 words is not that far since my vocab was very lacking going in. All I had done was Core2k + another thousand. The main problem is I have no idea how long it actually is, if I knew I were close to finishing it I probably would, but I get the feeling I'm only about 10% in or so.

Each kana has a meaning. く indicates concurrance, which is why it's used in the continuative form of adjectives for example. Did you just study the pronunciations? How the fuck do you except to understand anything except the most basic shit then.

Mind controlling parasites are nice too, but they've been overplayed on mainstream sites to the point of becoming cliche.

It's not my own cup of tea, but the right youtube searches can lead you to Indian doctors who proudly post HD videos of their adventures treating enormous blackheads and other skin conditions in the Indian countryside.

Brain research animal experiments are also pretty fucked up, and the well knows ones have accessible write-ups available.

Reading often actually makes me fuck up more sometimes. When seeing new words all the time, I get so used to words being new that I sometimes accidentally treat a word I already know as a new one, and take a half-assed guess at it instead of just searching in my memory.

Good thing that, despite what a certain smug condescending girl would tell you, a mistake once in a while doesn't affect your overall chances of eventually mastering a language. Even the most competent people do the stupidest shit once in a while.

>>138886797
Everyoe I have ever spoke to who is learning a language loves duolingo. Probably because its a smartphone app and lets them feel accomplished after learning 5 words a day while taking a shit.
It probably isn't as bad for people learning languages like French or Spanish that use the latin alphabet as it is for learning Japanese

Duolingo doesn't have Japanese

Does it?

>>138886797
To be honest it's shit like that which leads me to avoid most language learning forums... every question for which "anki" is a perfect answer, getting bullshit responses like duolingo and trash psuedo-flashcard websites... it boggles the mind. I have to avoid them, to save myself the time of ranting about Anki 24/7.

All you really need to remember is the reading, which can easily be done with a mnemonic. It's better to learn the nuances of words with tons of senses from context anyway.

>>138890885

Yes, pretty much, if you're just starting you won't be reading so much as mining each sentence as a learning exercise

14. to win (in a card game, etc.)
15. to be arrested
17. to be deep fried
19. to get stage fright
20. to be offered (to the gods, etc.)

How are these related at all? Why am I learning this shitty language?
>>
>>138890937
>staring at something for long periods wont make you understand it
Yeah, but looking up words and referencing back to grammar guides will

Going through a bunch of sentences without understanding them nor attempting to is less effective in the early game than intensive reading

Then why are you complaining about rar and zip? You aren't making any sense at all. Think before typing.

As for nyaa they often lack seeders and don't always have much choice manga-wise.

Anyway, you might know it but look into the OP, we have a lot of books.
>>
>>138890885
When you're stuck on a sentence, it can be a great opportunity to learn from it by consulting a grammar guide and examining the dictionary entries extra carefully. But don't waste too much time on it. There's some things you just won't learn without absorbing it through exposure, which you'll only get if you let yourself move on and read more.

Basically, if you feel you're getting nowhere with a sentence, just move on.

As far as I can tell, he was looking for non-rar and non-zip sources... for whatever reason

Don't stuck at one point and memorize the 6-7 different English meaning before moving on, that's recipe for disaster. Common words have multiple meanings, just accept the fact. Just know the general idea behind the pictogram 上and 下 means and then read. The more you read the easier to understand it.

Just fyi, 出る 出す also have as much meaning acc. to jisho.org. So does a couple other very common verbs. Just roll with it by reading more.

This. I'm also pleasantly surprised that a Japanese person also doesn't want to update to that shit instead of just doing what it told them to do.
>>
>>138896665
that should be the first thing you learn.
drop your grammar for a bit and learn the kana: hiragana and katakana. should be no problem, won't take too long to get to the level of being able to read them. it'll be slow at first, of course, but speed and general skill in it will come naturally while trying to read to stuff and learning other parts of the language.

People who fail the entrance exams for universities and spend a year NEETing and learning for the next try are called 浪人
二浪する is when you fail yet again and spend a second year preparing for the exams

Is it possible to edit the meanings and sentence examples in the core6k deck? Some words make much more sense in my native language.
>>
>>138899107
Also, I'm using AnkiDroid.
>>
>>138899107
Ye.

Also, as a fellow non-EOP, that's not such a good idea since you're translating the words instead of conceptualizing them.
>>
>>138899107
There's an edit button for a reason
>>
>>138899222
How?

Well, I wasn't referring to the meanings themselves, but rather the concepts. For example, これ/それ/あれ make more sense in Spanish and Portuguese because they're equivalent to este/ese/aquel and este/esse/aquele.
>>
>>138899222
its not like you can conceptualize them without seeing/hearing them in various contexts anyway
>>
>>138899283
Whoops, sorry. Don't know how I missed that. Thanks, anon.

What are some stupid/funny things to do to memorize kanji/phrases? When I first started learning Japanese I did RTK and such but I started making my own saying to memorize things. Like すみません. The first part sounds like 'sue me' and the ません part I knew as a negative verb, so I remembered it as 'don't sue me.' I'm curious if any of you have these things you make up. The funnier the better!
>>
>>138899619
Ha, my class did sue-me-ません too.

We also came up with a 出口 monster, it's as big as two mountains 山 and it's coming to eat you and you better get out. Similarly, 肉 is two people 人 trying to escape an enclosure before they get eaten. Someone also felt that the 丙 in 病 really looked like a headless person on a bed. Obviously very ill. ...my class was kind of morbid sometimes.

I remember snickering at 薬 (oh yes, the FUN grass) when I first saw it, but it's kind of tame next to 轢. Kanji, we need to talk about the things you find fun and relaxing.

>See a dirty 外人 walking around Roppongi
>Pull out cellphone camera and approach him to see if he's fluent or if he's just some sleazy foreigner that's sliding by on English.
>He claims to be fluent and speaks passable spoken Japanese.
>Pull out a book and ask him to read a page.
>He reads it with passable comprehension.
>Pull out a notepad and ask him to write a few characters, using proper stroke order of course.
>He begins to sweat.
>>"I.. I got to go. My girl is waiting in the train..."
>Shove the notepad towards him and demand that he writes. He starts stammering.
>Activate camera to have video proof of this lying pig.
>"What are the radicals used in these characters? What characters are used in the ateji for ポルトガル? What is the ateji for apple? Write out these words using proper stroke order. How many strokes are used to write 麈,黐,黍, and 黏?"
>He starts sweating profusely and begins to stumble away.
>Scream at the top of my lungs:
>"YOU DON'T DESERVE THAT VISA! I'VE DONE THE REPS! I'VE MEMORIZED THE STROKES! I'VE HAD FRIENDS THAT WERE KILLED DOING THEIR FUCKING CARDS! STOLEN VALOR! STOLEN VALOR! STOLEN VALOR!"

I played both and I don't think 3DS additions are worth getting the thing if you don't own it.
It's worth getting it for SQ4 and Final, though.

Pretty sure that voice acting is a big enough reason for a moon apprentice.

I got the Kanji Grid extension, now how do I view the actual grid?

>3 years of HS Japanese
>After 2nd year, went to Japan through school during the summer, got redpilled
>Self-studied, but 5 APs in 12th grade killed any energy to study 日本語
>The most complicated sentence I can construct is 高校の時によく勉強したりシコったりした。(I think that's how it goes)
>Flash-forward to uni, just about the only study I do is 30 minutes of kanji on Anki

How do you find the motivation?
