Thank you, I am an idiot.

To the other person who is thinking of looking for IT jobs in Japan,
They do need bilinguals. I'm only between N4 and N3 and they still have plenty of jobs in that area, even better if you have had work experience.
Of course now the jobs are just jobs that appear, but if you aim job season you might have a good time.
also rakuten is hiring entry levels if you want to try, 15-20 positions last I checked, I tried to apply but my cat fucked my code task up

Well I dunno if I'm arguing against the same person here but you can't post a quote from a Wikipedia article claiming that subvocalization is physical and then ignore the fact that the article also says it's normal and impossible to completely remove. I dunno where you got this definition of "real" subvocalization you're referring to.

Yes you can. Wikipedia is stew. You literally have to vet the references of every statement in a wikipedia article in order to avoid misinformation. The wikipedia article is literally two different topics that are being forced under the same term, and it extensively references very unscientific studies that don't control for all influencing factors.

Yes, this is affecting the definition of "subvocalization", but as it was coined and exists it's not "reading aloud in your head", which you can't remove, but just "your throat makes faint vocalizations of what you're reading", which automatically goes away when you're literate if you're neurotypical.

You can't use Wikipedia to back up your assertions and then claim other people's assertions can't be backed up by the same source because it's unreliable. That's asinine. So far you've just made a lot of statements without proof and the only source that's been referenced disagrees with you.

The quote is based directly on those references. I'm sorry if you're somehow so autistic that you assumed that a third party quote with no standard format citation was meant to be a formal citation, but that is wrong. You're supposed to be exposed to the existence of contrary information and research it yourself, not take literally any indication of information contrary to yours as an attack in formal argument.

Nope, I'm done. You don't care about subvocalization, you care about people responding to you on an internet forum.

No, it's not wrong. Unless you want to get somebody to fill out all your documentation for you? Either that, or you clumsily spend 30 minutes just filling out a document for opening a bank account because you can't write anything.

Either way, it's sad that you can't even do something that a 7 year old can do.

Hey guys, I'm thinking of learning japanese again
I was 2/3rds into core6k but I've forgotten most of it
Should I just start over from scratch? I did a good job of burning out too quickly over a month last year

Also, going into uni soon (for unrelated stem bs)- what are the chances that they have decent japanese classes? should I just invest in another language? japanese seems useless in the long run, russian is probably just as niche, but chinese and spanish are more practical

First, if you forgot your Japanese, you never really "learned" it. So yes, start from scratch.

Second, there's no way to know what classes your university offers. You should call and ask your university, not here. I think that's just common sense.

Third, defining the usefulness of a language based on how you can use it in a career is absurd. Using that logic, there's no point in learning anything aside from English, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Arabic, Portuguese, French, Russian, and German. Everything else is pointless. Oh, and be sure to never take any kind of hobby that is "useless" because everything needs a practical application in life.

>>
>>146847449
>not sure why it's even an option then
Because you can modify steps. I think the rationale behind the default steps is that the first time you see a card, you're supposed to take a minute to "learn" it and press "good", and then if you can recall it when it shows up again you press "good" again, otherwise press "again", rinse and repeat.

Yes, and I'm sure Chinese classes have a bad reputation with people who don't care about learning Japanese and just want it for business purposes.

Everything can have a bad reputation added to it.

>I might fit right in but I'd feel ashamed of myself if I can't justify taking the classes aside from out of pure lust for little anime girls...
Stop caring what other people think.

Are you actually only taking it because you're a sad little degenerate who is lustful for 2D anime girls? If so, it sounds like you're actually ashamed of yourself but just don't want to admit it.

However, if you're fine with being like that, then just stop caring what others think and do what you want.

>I'd like to atleast delude myself into thinking it has a practical application in life
You're the only person who can decide how practical something is. Once again, stop caring what the world tells you and do what you want. You're so concerned with fitting in and are worried that people are going to laugh at you behind your back or something.

I think the answer is probably both. Caffeine is extremely habit forming, and you can definitely experience withdrawal symptoms at that usage level. Also you sound like a sissy.

Wait, what does this have to do with 日本語?
>>
>>146846168
You won't learn Japanese or Chinese to a level usable in business just by taking university classes. The vast majority of your study time will need to be outside class.

>>146848326
I think it is probably you with the addictive properties, rather than the caffeine. In a similar way it's not necessarily the caffeine that is making you stay in bed till 3pm. Always try to believe you have control over your own actions, for as long as it seems to have even the slightest chance of being true.

but theres no other reason why anyone would take it right? I'm not courting a japanese woman (nor do I intend to), I'm not in it to escape to the japanese lifestyle or live out my SOL fantasies in the 田舎- because I'm not delusional enough to think the grass is greener on the other side. What am I really going to use japanese for, if not to read untranslated japanese-exclusive media? I haven't watched anime since 5 seasons ago, and I don't read manga. Nothing else comes to mind besides more deviant prospects in my case. I'll never understand- this is the same reason why I quit last year
>>
>>146849449
Why do you need a reason at all? Don't you enjoy learning and making progress?
>>
>>146849449
No offense, but your way of thinking is very delusional, cynical, and kind of creepy.

The reason why most people learn Japanese is to speak to Japanese people, live in Japan, or indulge in Japanese media, e.g. books, games, movies, and anime. You obviously fall into that latter category, but you also seem to think that anybody who has another reason for doing it if fooling themselves or something.

Not everybody who moves to Japan is some "otaku" social reject, not everybody who likes Japan thinks it's the greatest paradise in the history of mankind, and not everybody who enjoys Japan thinks they're on the greener side of the fence.

You're thinking about this way too much. And just because you are only interested in jacking off to hentai doujinshi doesn't mean that's why everybody else is doing it. Are you sure you're capable of empathy and understanding what people aside from yourself do things?

With the Yotsubato reading pack, is the order based on the chapters or something else? I want to know if I can do 300 cards read the first chapter do the next 300 read the next and so on. I feel like I really need to start reading as soon as possible or I'm going to lose interest. Cards aren't fun.

the more you can use Japanese to ask about Japanese the better- learn how to ask in Japanese "what is x in Japanese" "what is ringo in english", "please speak more slowly/clearly"
teach yourself as much as you can(grammar, writing systems, particles,...) so you can spend time in the lessons getting feedback on your speaking. if you self study alongside the lessons you will progress faster, and the teacher won't think you're a lazy student

Here is the only frequency that matters:
Do you want to be able to recall the word or not?
Anki almost guarantees that you will be able to remember/recall the word from longer term memory with minimal effort, provided the word is reviewed as the program suggests.
If you don't really care too much about the word, don't bother committing it to a review process and accept that the next time you come across it, there is a good chance you'll have to stop and look it up again. Is that something you don't want to do? Add it to Anki. Is that something you don't really care about? Don't add it to Anki.

Frequency is largely irrelevant as people tend to be interested in reading narrowly rather than widely, meaning the general frequency corpus used in Rikaisama isn't an accurate representation of the corpus of words which are commonly found within the types of things you are reading. A generic "safe bet" is: is the word found in the Core2k/6k/10k deck? If so, you can safely add it to your vocab revising if the concept of generic frequency is of high importance.

So one process could be:
Look up word, check if it is part of the Core2k/6k/10k corpus.
*A. Yes? Add it.
**B. No?
***B1. Add it if you would like to commit the word to longer term memory.
***B2. Ignore it if you don't really care about the word and don't mind looking it up again later.
[Repeat B for each time you come across the word again.]

Core2k/6k/10k corpus:
http://core6000.neocities.org/10k/

~~~
My process? I like to re-read things at a later point in time and when I come across an unknown word, it is added to Anki if I don't want to look the word up the next time I read that particular manga volume, etc. or not added if I don't care about having to look it up again. That's about as complex as I get, which is kind of like a dumbed down version of the aforementioned process.

I'm a male of 26. How do you think, could I learn Japanese on my own in 5 years to advance level? Provided I put in as much effort as I can. Btw I have successfully mastered two languages, Spanish and English.
>>
>>146864910
Given you haven't even come close to scratching the doorknob of English, I think 5 years of Japanese would put you at the level of a toddler.

>>146864910
What's the point of asking strangers on the internet whether or not you can accomplish something that depends entirely on your motivation and hard work? Visit the guide in the OP and start learning immediately.

"What do you think," "Do you think" or "I could" would make this a proper sentence, with completely different meanings.

Doesn't sound like something a native would type. "I have perfect command over", maybe.

I need some help/tips

Pressure at school has been getting bigger than expected and I don't feel like studying japanese anymore.

I have been studying it ~2 hours daily for about ~4 months now. Without skipping a single day.

yesterday and the day before that I didn't do anything japanese related. I picked it up again today but don't feel motivated at all.

Is this just a phase that will pass or do I need to do something active about it?

You mean like a dictionary?

What's up with people using 〜く for compound sentences?

>本日埼玉気温36度 湿度も高く
体温調整にエネルギー使い疲れましたよ。

I thought the conjunctive form of words that end in い was くて, but I see this all the time

It's too fucking hot to do anything

Not hot enough to stop you randomly bitching about it on an imageboard dedicated to anime and manga discussion.

>That correct % on learning (core 2k/6k)

I'm either doing something seriously wrong or I'm just plain retarded. I know most of the kanji that's showing up but a lot of the words refuse to stick.

>>146874361
Well obviously it's not too hot to write a seven word post on a forum

It is however too hot to do any of the various Japanese related activities I spend my time doing

What are your new card steps + starting ease? Found in deck options.

>>
>>146874654
Add some new cards?

>>146874441
Try making up a mnemonic when a card doesn't stick.
