daily reminder that

1. there isn't just one way to do or teach meditation, which means any given study you read on it might be discussing the results of a technique that could be more or less effective than another one. so any attempt to lump all meditation together without being very specific about the actual technique being practiced, is a disingenuous and ignorant thing to do.

2. as of right now, ZERO studies exist on the effects of following the specific meditation manual, "The Mind Illuminated", which has been rated as pretty much the meditation guide of the century with a 4.6 on Goodreads (over 1,000 ratings) and a 4.7 on Amazon (over 300 ratings). this means there is a significant chance that the results from currently existing studies on "meditation" are nothing like what the results would look like for a long-term study specifically on people following the book The Mind Illuminated.

so shitting on meditation based on the studies that exist currently in response to being presented with a specific manual and meditation style that has trumped all other systems to date but does not yet have any scientific studies on it, is simply false equivalence and also very disingenuous.

to illustrate those points further, a review pulled from goodreads:

"Best book on meditation that I have ever read, by far. Detailed instructions and goals for each level of skill, as well as discussion of obstacles previously encountered on that stage, allowed me to get forward in my practice after I'd hit roadblocks that previous instructions hadn't adequately prepared me for. Also has extensive theoretical models, using language derived from cognitive psychology rather than anything mystic and esoteric, for understanding what is going on in the practice.
Probably one of the top five or so books that's improved my life the most so far."

pay attention to where he says
>discussion of obstacles previously encountered on that stage, allowed me to get forward in my practice after I'd hit roadblocks that previous instructions hadn't adequately prepared me for.

this kind of comment is extremely common throughout discussions of The Mind Illuminated. "i was meditating other ways and i never got past x point or x obstacle. TMI described how and i finally reached levels i never could before".

one flaw in many meditation and mindfulness systems that have had studies done on them so far, is that they tend to be relatively surface level, cookie cutter practices that the average joe or random, not-very-invested person would be willing to do, usually aiming just for calmness and stress relief, mild cognitive improvement. think duolingo for language learning.

they don't address going deeper, accessing subconscious traumas and stubborn mental patterns, moving through difficult emotions etc. how significantly you're able to transform the quality of your mental activity depends hugely on the quality and depth of instruction.

>>21348397
>the intonation goes up
You have no idea if it does or doesn't just by what's given. That's like the sentence "This is a dog" - it could be said as a question, but without a question mark we can't tell, or reasonably assume, what the writers intentions were. Either the writer did mean it as a question, and either forgot the question mark or didn't care to include it, or they don't know how to use もしかして

>>21348472
no you are wrong
you got all the information you need
this is a dog sucks because it's a correct sentence and the 1. interpretation is a simple declarative sentence
but if that didn't make sense you'd obviously assume the other version that did
which is what you should do rather than making dumb guesses and purposefully misinterpreting correct sentences to have something to complain about in your head lol

?
>>
>>21348488
>purposefully misinterpreting correct sentences
The only way the sentence is correct is if the writer meant it as a question, which we can never really know, only they know. It's possible they meant it as a question, but it's much less certain given that they don't include a question mark. I'm questioning whether or not you're the one who wrote the sentences given how upset you're getting that someone is reasonably critiquing one little sentence.

I have to say that I quite recommend reading 「ひげを剃る。そして女子高生を拾う。」, it's pretty comfy and it has furigana for most words. I was pretty shocked when I saw that, I wasn't expecting the first LN I'd read would be so beginner friendly.

I started RTK1 yesterday, at 180 kanjis that i perfectly remember already, but im afraid that it will get harder and harder, whats a good ammount to learn per day for brainlets like me?
>>
>>21348590
that's what yomichan is for my man, with the added bonus that i don't have to use yomichan and can try to read a sentence without seeing the readings first, which is impossible for me to do with furigana (can't help looking at it).
>>
>>21348603
I did around 25 a day and ended up fine, be sure to listen and read aswell
>>
>>21348603
I did like 20 to 25 a day for classic RTK (without knowledge of Japanese, just learning to write characters.) I wouldn't recommend you do what I did though
>>
>>21348603
optimum amount is around 25 a day if you want to study like 90 minutes a day. if you are willing to study more a day then go for it
>>
>>21348603
10-20. i did 25 and had good retention throughout but it was mentally draining and made me not want to do other things. and i don't think you should do all of RTK if you're just using it to improve your recognition skills. stop at like 1k.

Well, im learning kanjis just for how relaxing it is to image little stories behind every kanji, i know 0 grammars or verbs, guess i will do 20-30 a day and see if i can keep it up, thanks!
>>
>>21348606
That also happens to me but I bought a physical copy to force me to not procrastinate, yomichan really isn't of much use for me, I just write the kanji with the furigana or use radical search on jisho
>>
>>21348603
no more than 30, but I think a good median is 20 to 25 - not to many, but not too little.

I haven't studied Japanese for about 6 months now. Everytime I want to start I get stressed out: it's as if I'm choking!

I've studied Japanese for 2.5 years almost every day and today I found out I barely passed my JLPT N5 so I decided to pick up learning Japanese again. However when I read about others who passed their N5 after a couple of months of study it feels like I'm choking!I also have no idea what to study nextwhich causes that choking feeling to become even stronger. Has anyone ever experienced the same thing? How do I stop this feeling? I want to study Japanese so bad but I have no idea where to start anymore... Should I just quit? Thinking about quiting also gives me this choking feeling but will that make it stop by not thinking about it anymore?
>>
depression is a defense mechanism for individuals whose statuses are threatened, who could potentially hurt themselves navigating social environments, so they shut down in an attempt to get them to fix their problem so they can be social again.
>>
>>21348682
This is my I think 3rd or 4th time taking N5. In the exam 2 days ago I feel like I'm gonna fail it again and been crying since, but after recollecting myself, I think I finally understand why I'm failing.


Little background of skill level: I haven't actually studied Japanese seriously until maybe a few years ago. I memorized Hiragana and Katakana many, many years ago via sheer exposure (sister was full-weeb that time so I got so I got to watch her play Japanese video games a lot), and then around 2-3 years ago I started grinding vocab via lexikeet, I think, which helped me understand radicals and learned how to write kanji correctly

And then 0-1 years back from right now I've mostly been learning Japanese via Anki, did some translation projects for some 4komas and game content, but I never did take the effort to learn these vocabulary like putting them in an Anki deck and grinding each day. Right now I talk to some Japanese acquaintances every now and then online in a community I'm in, using mostly vocab to deliver broken-but-understandable Japanese. I even got a sponsored trip to Japan last month for my translation work.


Anyway, cutting straight to the point, it seems that grammar is my weakest point, and listening also still needs some improvement. I'm pretty sure I aced vocab minus one question (I had no idea what みがいています meant at the time... but ironically I knew what the kanji 磨く means, so I would have gotten it right if the question used kanji instead of full hiragana). Heck, my gf who passed N3 a while ago didn't know the kanji for 砂糖 but I did, lol


Constructive advice would be appreciated, thanks. I'm thinking of immediately retaking this July, and hoping that my grammar would be fixed by then.

>>21348679
If you truly want to learn Japanese, quitting is only going to make you regret not learning Japanese. If you're going to learn Japanese, you need to just accept, or somehow manage to not give a fuck, what your current level is and how long it's taken you to get there, and keep learning. The main thing you need is input, so if you don't know what to learn, just keep getting input, listening and reading, while looking up words or grammatical structures you don't understand to improve. If you haven't already I suggest skimming a decent grammar guide of the fundamental grammatical structures used in Japanese. If you want to be able to write kanji you should start doing rtk or some variant, while getting as much input in a day as you can every day. You most likely won't ever forget the time aspect of your situation, but know that the only way forward is continuing to learn in spite of it and not dwelling on it - you can't change it, you can only control what happens from now on.

Fuck no. The characters are all unremarkable and most of the plot relies on characters being imbeciles at every step, and each route is resolved with deus ex AI wizards coming in to save the day. The gameplay is okay, but the pacing of how things are unlocked is fucked up, it's far too easy on even the hardest difficulty, and exists in a completely different dimension from the writing.

The thing that always gets me is that there is no possible excuse for Reminiscence. It's 10-15% of the script that is recapping the worst fucking parts of the first four routes. It's generic high school harem bullshit shoved into the middle of a cyberpunk conspiracy. Imagine if you got halfway through Altered Fable, and then it forced you to replay an entire random route of Extra from start to finish. It drags everything to a complete stop, and despite being longer than most of the actual present day routes, the only new thing it reveals contradicts something else that it already set as established. There is no fucking excuse.

>>21348868
the school life stuff is just as important as the cyberpunk present day stuff, if you don't personally like that aspect of the game that's fine but IMO it was pretty necessary to put all that shit perfectly in order for the player to a. catch back up on all the foreshadowing and sneaky writing stuff they had during those segments as well as b. help give the finale the impact that it has

motivational post of the day: Japanese people start learning English in elementary school, and most of them can't string together a completely coherent sentence in English by the time their 20 if their life depended on it! So even if you're fairly early in your Japanese studies, you're probably on near or par with what the average Japanese person can do in English. Keep pushing and you'll be able to flex on those japs in no time!

That's kind of like me. I lived in japan when I was a kid then when I got to america I had a bunch of japanese friends. I dated two japanese girls. I love the japanese people. I always knew a bunch of basic words but never too much further than that. Then it hit me one day, why the fuck not? So I did a bunch of japanese books, watched japanese tv all day, programs, and japanese classes in college, rosetta, all the apps you can think of.
I kind of always considered kanji impossible. I figured I'd never be able to read japanese. I'd seen a youtube video where a guy had been living in japan for 15 years and he said he was still terrible at japanese and that the language was impossible. So I gave up for 5 years. Then last year I stumbled upon ajatt. The testimony of so many people there and the motivation of khatz really reinspired me. I realized I was never really giving it my all. Maybe like my 10%. So I went super hard into it. 9 months later I finally know the joyo kanji, I can read about 7k words, I can hear abuot 4k words, and speak a few thousand at a whim now. I think I might actually make it. I'm starting to play VN's and use monolingual dictionary more and more. To think I wasted years doing it half assed.

If you want it and you know you do, then don't waste time. You still have to be patient though.

i’m not a transsexual, and you know nothing about me other than i know about and practice meditation and i study japanese. and because you’re biased against the word “meditation” despite knowing nothing about the actual process whatsoever, you call me a transsexual to distract from the points i bring up about it.

it’s really immature and kind of disturbing if you’re an adult who behaves like that. if you don’t want to hear about meditation then either 1. block me or 2. just ignore and do something else with your time.

I mean, I feel like I won't be saying anything that you don't already know, but you should consult an actual grammar guide and listen to a bunch more of material. I think I took too much time with them, but I used Genki 1 & 2 when I was first learning Japanese (before I knew anything about input, Stephen Krashen, AJATT, and other stuff regarding language learning). There's still grammar that I have to look up because I haven't encountered it, but for the most part I haven't really had much problems with grammar after going through those books. If you want to pass the n5 just going over Genki 1 should be good enough I would think, though I've never taken it myself so take my comment with a grain of salt. I can only recommend them from experience, but alternatively people say Tae Kim is pretty good so you could check out his grammar guide too. There are also websites that specifically showcase grammar that's apparently on the n5 exam, so maybe just look into that instead. Either way, take enough time to try to understand how the grammar works in the examples given, but the best thing is to just consume content that uses them, which considering that n5 has the most basic grammar which you can find in content for kids all the way to academic papers, you're bound to find multiple examples of those grammar points being used in any given native show you watch or text you read.

Regarding listening, find content interests you and listen to it - and watch it if it has a visual component. I think visual materials are probably the best as they're (generally) the most engaging for people. When consuming visual materials, like anime for example, do NOT use subtitles. Long story short, if you want to improve your listening, LISTEN, don't read. I don't know what your listening skills are at right now, so you may be at the point where you don't understand much of what's being said in any given material, but, sadly, that's the way it is. The (seemingly-but-not-really) paradox is that the only thing to help you is to listen more. I personally recommend looking up certain words here and there that you can make out but don't know the meaning of when listening/watching material, but some people recommend looking up entire lines when you don't understand a line. I'm not completely convinced on that being the best way to go about it, but people say it works for them, so maybe test out each method and see what works best for you. Or just go with what sounds the best and don't look back. And when I say listen to a bunch of materials, I mean a BUNCH. I think the bare minimum you should be striving for every day is at least two hours of listening, but even then, if possible, I would say bump up the minimum to three hours. This isn't a completely valid rule, but, generally speaking, the more listening input you have the better your listening comprehension will be. 頑張れ

Guess I shouldn't get my hopes up about them fixing this any time soon then. Fug.

Suppose I'll have to stick to reading LNs with horizontal text for now. Out of curiosity, have you tried Nazeka with vertical text in Chromium/Chrome? Does that have the same problem too?

>If you put vertical-rl on the body element instead of the html element it'll be better, but the page will originate in the top left instead of the top right like it should.

>>
>>21349785
>got any tips for a beginner wanting to get into meditation?
yes!

first, accept the fact that as a result of you being a human on this planet interacting with other (sometimes not so friendly) humans, and being exposed to the countless messages and images perpetuated by society, your subconscious mind has absorbed a tonnnn of shit, most of it useless, distracting or damaging. and that stuff will be drudged up into your conscious mind during meditation so that you can work with it and eventually clear a lot of it away. as much as you can, do not judge what you encounter. do not blame yourself if certain thoughts arise that disturb you. it’s all a part of the process. self-compassion, seeing your own humanity, will also be vital.

also, in the beginning your mind will wander a lot. it’s completely normal. when the subconscious stuff starts arising it will shoot up like a fountain. as you practice attention via the instructions in TMI (or whatever system you use, but imo TMI is really the best), the mind wandering will significantly increase until it eventually disappears entirely and mental/emotional clarity is your default.

and lastly, watch this. https://youtu.be/Mzlk1iq_LRs
>>
>>21348416
I did try opening the LN I'd switched to vertical text in Chromium but it seems like Yomichan doesn't work on local files for some reason because even after I tried switching the text back to horizontal the popup just wouldn't appear.

I tried going to other websites to make sure there was no problem with Yomichan itself, and indeed it worked just fine on those.

What does どつき mean? I feel like it's delinquent slang, but I still can't tell what it means.

>>21350343
even people with a good amount of listening input but no active time studying pitch accent or practicing discerning it in speech have trouble understanding the pitch accent in a word or sentence, so just imagine how a beginner would do doing the same thing. again, maybe to you it's useless, but that it wouldn't benefit many is demonstrably wrong - let your ego go.
>>
>>21350378
no it doesn’t help beginners to tell them they need another thing on their cards to remember and oh btw that thing happens to be behind my paywall

>i don’t need yomichan for anki cards i’m not reading inside anki i want to read actual content
I think this would actually be really useful... if it wasn't a pitch accent look-up but rather a J-E word look-up. It would be immensely helpful for someone wanting to switch to having J-J definitions on their cards but whose vocabulary is just not at the level where they can really pull it off yet.

As it is though, I agree that it's kind of pointless. Rather than having to drag your mouse across the text, it would be better to just utilize the feature they show where you can change the color of words to reflect their pitch accent patterns, then you don't have to keep switching back and forth between your keyboard and mouse and can just see the pitch accents at a glance.

That said though, it seems to me that having pitch accent info displayed for anything more than a single word in isolation is a bad idea. As I understand it, the pitch accent of a word can change depending on where it is in a sentence, so a lot of the time this add-on is probably going to be telling you the wrong pitch accent for the word you're looking at in the context that you're looking at it in.

>>
>>21350434
>no it doesn’t help beginners to tell them they need another thing on their cards to remember
you do realize you can make cards just for pitch accent, right? There's not necessarily anything extra being added. Even then, if it's someone's goal to get pitch accent practice, using that add-on allows them a way to get that practice, so it does help them. Just keep digging that hole anon.

The first thing that comes to mind when i see どつき is 突く with a ど in front of it. 突く is a can be used to mean punch (殴る).

The ど in どつき has no real meaning to me but just makes the word sound more rough and impolite.

For example; アホ could be translated to dumbass then どアホ could mean something like dumb fuck.

どつき合う, since it has 合う, would just mean to punch each other or in other words, fight or brawl.

This word is fairly normal for people in 関西 and will probably see it in standup or other 関西 shows but to anyone else its just slang they heard on tv.

"This left Yoga with a strong desire to once again become bilingual, and led him to begin learning Japanese in 2009. His experience learning English had taught him that immersion was the key to language acquisition [ ... ] Yoga began intensive Japanese study. By the time he moved to Japan two years later, he was fluent in the language. And after an additional year of intensive study in the country, he was comfortably in the top 1% of foreign Japanese speakers."

6000 is just to get you started. Later you sentence mine to reach about 25k at least. If you do core decks, be ware that most of what you find is very poorly formatted, which impedes learning. Sentence in kanji should be on the front, everything else on the back. And the task is to read and understand the whole sentence.

No. Either you won't understand the J-J definitions at all, or to understand a definition of 1 word in the J-J dictionary you'll have to look up 5 new words from that word's definition just to make sense of it.

You're also going to make it harder for yourself to understand things when reading because the J-J definition will knock the sentence from which you're looking up the word out of your short-term memory.

How new are you?

If anything is unethical, it's Matt and Yoga paywalling copyrighted material (the NHK Accent Dictionary audio) and seeking to profit from it. If you're such a moralfag, how about you go report their YouTube channels and Patreons for distributing copyrighted materials without permission?

>>
>>21351201
That will mislead anyone who wants to apply it to Japanese though (99% of people given the general focus of Matt's channel). They will get unrealistic expectations of what they can achieve in Japanese following MIA and then get really disappointed when those expectations aren't met.

In 3 months of doing MIA for Japanese, a prospective learner won't have even started consuming comprehensible input yet. All they will have done is meditation (lol), incomprehensible input in the form of audio immersion that they don't and can't understand, learned to recognize 1k kanji out of context, and reviewed some sentence cards taken from a beginner resource (either Tae Kim or the JLPT Tango books).
>>
>>21351228
>how about you go report their YouTube channels and Patreons for distributing copyrighted materials without permission?
there is a gray area to what is ethical to distribute and what is not based on several factors. a hugely important factor here is that matt and yoga are just two dudes trying to make it in this world as opposed to large businesses. the latter can take a hit but matt and yoga can't.

secondly, those hypothetical businesses aren't actually missing out on anything. matt and yoga are distributing materials to people who otherwise would never use them.

so yea, enjoy getting reprimanded by a mod or at least a janitor like jamal.
>>
>>21351241
matt and yoga have been pretty straightforward about it taking years to achieve fluency in japanese and i'm sure they would reiterate as much if they used MIA to learn a category 1 language. beyond that point you'd have to blame the stupidity of their audience if they interpret it as "i can get good at japanese in 3 months".

I believe it is best to use as little English as possible, but not to an extent where it hinders your progress, obviously. However, when you're a beginner, learning one word for something is hard enough, and you won't benefit much from synonyms, and nothing from Japanese definitions. Example sentences, on the other hand, are excellent; you do not only understand what the word means, but also how to use it.

basically i'm saying i should just ignore listening and join the eceleb shitposting. i don't know whether or not i'm supposed to sit there and absorb the garbled mess, or pause every other sentence and reveal the subtitles to see what i just heard, and then replay the audio until i can say "i'm familiar with this phrase when reading but now i know what it sounds like here even though i'll forget what i just heard if i try listening to that same phrase again tomorrow (which i won't do because rewatching the same thing would be boring)" rinse and repeat for a couple hours every day.

Stop bitching and keep listening. When I started I replayed phrases that I didn't understand a lot, looked them up in the Japanese subs and then made sure I could hear all the syllables because I felt like I was getting more out of a given episode that way. Either way, if you keep watching you'll get better, no matter how you go about it.

>>21352195

sentence farming with anki from interesting, compelling content while referencing grammar guides and dictionaries to break down those sentences, is the best route for beginners. its best if that farming is from anime, VNs or dramas so you can listen (and if you want, shadow) as well.

after 2,000 sentences or so, that's when i'd say just start reading, watching, and playing what you want while farming single vocab cards for a while (and even a few more sentences here and there if they have new grammar or abstract concepts you want to get down). get your vocab to around 5,000 doing that.

then, you can either keep farming vocab along with your immersion, or stop farming and just look things up as you immerse, hoping they stick with repeated exposure (increasing your vocab this way may take longer than farming those words and studying them in anki, BUT you'll be able to get through several times as much compelling content). japanese is your playground at that point.
>>
>>21352254
don't worry so much about reading fast. remember that the most important thing is comprehension. if you want to get faster then timed repeated reading (of a small passage) might be helpful, but even that isn't something you can force. you'd still have to let yourself naturally get faster with each reading rather than "try" to read faster.

Never care about JLPT levels. Just get fluent and take the N1 after you are fluent. It'll be a cakewalk.
>>
>>21352461
>all these plebs never having tried learning Chinese
>>
>>21352461
I don't think N5 has N2 or N3 Kanji... I think you should study N4-N5 Kanji and be fine. Really though I don't think you should bother taking an N5 exam and wait until you feel you're like N3 or something (I'm assuming you want the paper for something job related)
>>
>>21352504
I don't think it's useless to take a lower-level JLPT, I mean sure, you can't really use the paper for anything, but it gives you a sense of achievement and motivates you to study for it. Also, it's relatively cheap. If it were an expensive exam like the TOEFL, I'd say no way, but given its price of around 60 bucks, it's not the worst thing to spend money on.

>>21352451
This was my approach

1st month
Master hiragana and katakana.
Method: Brute force

2nd month
you can now shitpots on /jlpt/
go for the N5 kanji list, 16 kanji every 4 days (meaning, onyomi and kunyomi).
Method: RTK, brute force
while doing that go for Tae Kim pdf study 1 chapter a week.

3rd month
thanks to Tae kim pdf, grammar will be more familiar so buy genki books and complete them (workbook included)
you can now shitpost in 2ch
I'm stuck here
keep going through Tae Kim to reinforce
start gathering all the N5 vocabulary list. you will be familiar with 40-50 % by now.
start reading japanese books for N5 level

4th month
You should be ready for N5 exam.

>>21352482
>>21352490
>>21352504
I have that mindset, I will be taking N3 exam by December. N3 is my goal,
Reasons?: I have plenty of them, about 80 % is to understand my future sons and daughters.

It annoys me when learning vocabulary that has some kanji not on my level. How should I approach that? Should I master all kanjis then go for vocabulary?

I was doing both at same time while trusting the N levels roadmap but now I understand why they call it N5 to N1.

It is just a way to classify gaijins comming to Japan. Nigger5 to Nigger1 because this makes absolutey no sense at all.
>>
>>21352541
What are you reading?
I'm more interesting in reading stuff at the moment, so I've thought to practice listening later on. I sometimes look up words to understand songs that I'm listening to, but not that often.
>>
>>21352536
I just think that as you progress, it will not feel like a meaningful achievement compared to a higher level. I just personally think you should save your $60.

As you approach N5, you'll know you've accomplished that. Higher levels feel abit more uncertain I think. You won't need the paper to give you that achievement, but if you find test-taking to be fun or motivational than go for it.
>>
>>21352550
>1st month
>Master hiragana and katakana.
one month? Seriously?
>meaning, onyomi and kunyomi
I did kanji study for the first kanji like this too, it sucks. Learn with words, or do RTK if you insist on it.
>buy genki books and complete them
Tae Kim is enough for grammar, I'd say. What do you need genki for? Just learn vocab if you don't want to go into content right away. Also, if you really want to do genki, don't waste that much money, dude ...
>>
>>21352550
>Reasons?: I have plenty of them, about 80 % is to understand my future sons and daughters.
If you want to understand Japanese, then study Japanese; you can pass the n3, hell the n1, and not be that good in Japanese (though you will definitely be better than a lot of gaijin). You're looking at things from the wrong side and wasting time studying for an arbitrary exam when you should just be aiming to get fluent in the language.
>>
>>21352568
>one month? Seriously?
yes, if you work, lift, and do hobby shit.
>Learn with words, or do RTK if you insist on it.
I know RTK but learn with words? how that works with the onyomi kunyomi reading?
>buy genki books and complete them
how do you test what you have learnt from Tae Kim? if you work, genki is not much money

maybe I will give RTK a try

ive put a lot more time into reading and that definitely made listening feel more approachable than it used to be so i think that strategy is fine
might want to do some voiced vns occasionally to help keep you in check on using the right readings
id probably get more out of it if i hold off longer until my vocabulary is bigger but i want to make at least a little progress on bein able to keep up

>I know RTK but learn with words? how that works with the onyomi kunyomi reading?
You learn words and that way you also pick up the kanji and their readings. Learning readings separate gets confusing and is also a waste of time.
>how do you test what you have learnt from Tae Kim?
Well, I'd say by starting to read stuff. If you want to start easy, read something like NHK easy. Stuff meant for (not-child) natives is going to be slow for you for a long time, so take something easier if you don't want to bite your way through that. You shouldn't but up reading real stuff for long, though. I did that because I was scared and it massively stunted me.
>if you work, genki is not much money
It's too much if you can get the same stuff you need for free using TK
>maybe I will give RTK a try
It's not exactly popular here, but if you really want to get familiar with the kanji before reading it's the way to go. It doesn't teach you readings or words so technically you aren't learning Japanese while doing it so I'd recommend to read a bit every day on the side so that you aren't learning nothing for months.

I can't be fluent from home, I need to live in Japan for that, and for that I need a work in Japan and for that companies requires me to classify as Nigger5 to Nigger1.

I also read a lot while learning English, listening came on it's own (it's probably a little different with Japanese because of the homophones but I think it'll work out somehow), I just mispronounce some rarer words I've never heard but only read. I don't have any VN's on my list that I want to read because I feel like most of the stuff that's recommended here is porn and/or on torrent which I don't do because I don't have a VPN right now. But I'll look into it (also, I've got Axanael lmao)
I wish I had an idea how big my vocabulary is, but I don't really use anki a lot so I can only guess. Which probably won't be correct.
How did you deal with kanji? Did you just learn words or did you something like RTK? I did all kinds of stuff, honestly. I learned like the grade one kanji with on and kunyomi and meanings from some flashcards I found online, then a bit of grade 2´two (school grades) like that and did up to grade 5 using kanji -> keyword with an memrise deck. Then I just memorized some others that I encountered, I know probably around 800-1000 now, most without readings though. I'm currently just learning vocab because I got sick of kanji study.

If you break it down like that it ends up being something like:

i did a lot of different shit with kanji in the beginning too and also got sick of it
i think just learning words and lettin your mind build the connections on its own is the way to go
if there was a benefit from putting time into kanji it was just gettin familiar with the radicals and shit so i can remember differences more easily when i find a couple words are tripping me up
anki is optional but if you use it i think theres value in only tryin to get word readings down with it and lettin meanings come naturally from readin

define "fluent" please. if we consider M*tt as fluent, which say what you want about his personality or whatever but he's obviously very skilled in Japanese, then you don't need to be in Japan to get fluent. Of course there are benefits to being in Japan as far as learning Japanese, but it has been demonstrably shown that you can get ペラペラ outside of Japan.

i agree with this 100% and feel like it should be the default perspective on kanji. all that writing it out and memorizing keywords and shit is SO UNNECESSARY like if you just read and learn words (i do think using anki helps a lot, especially for words that have new kanji or new readings for kanji you may already know) then kanji will become no big deal.

Sometimes I really get confused while reading - like, I can read everything and understand what I'm reading, but I couldn't translate it into English in my head. Idk. This of course happened with English at some point for me (... considering I think in English 90% of the day at least) but it didn't feel like this. I think.
I agree on that anki thing. I just didn't really like it because it was like a chore and I'd rather repeat them on my own without an algorithm and then trust that the stuff I need will pop up again.
I've honestly learnt better with stuff I wrote down by hand. I have a notebook for vocabulary and go through it and test myself on them (I just use scraps of paper sometimes and test myself with them)
I didn't study radicals a lot but I see and recognize them now.
How did you go about starting to learn Japanese? I mean, how did you decide? I started to pick up some words from anime and wanted to know more about how the language works. I don't know at what point I wanted to try to get fluent at some point.

He's shown himself talking to natives about things other than him being able to speak Japanese, he's shown that he understands native material very well so coupled with his ability to speak there would be little problem speaking on most things in general, he has Japanese friends that he talks to on the regular (and they probably don't just talk about him being able to speak Japanese), etc. Love or hate the guy but the only people who think he's not actually skilled in Japanese don't want him to be, and filter anything he does through that disposition. The fact remains that you can undoubtedly get fluent outside of Japan, and he's an example of that.
>>
really though there's the matt's-japanese-skills question and then there's the matt-as-a-person question. It's not like wielding a language fluently (e.g. the English language) is going to mean that people who speak that language are going to be interested in having conversations with you. or that you're going to understand everything in that language perfectly

honestly it doesnt matter when referring to like the sword itself

>>21352847
links ?
>>
>>21352802
I think けん is kind of the generic way of saying "sword", whereas つるぎ means basically the same thing but has a more poetic vibe to it.

If someone is speaking in a more metaphorical, etc. way, it's probably つるぎ, whereas if they're literally just talking about a sword then it's probably けん.

I might well be wrong through. Try Japanese google to be certain.
>>
it is more nippon like and certainly u can write in a way that leads the reader to read it one way or the other but otherwise its pretty w/e
>>
>>21352802
theyre interchangeable
>>21352882
or you might say けん is cool and poetic because it's taken from kanbun and just sounds kakkoii in general and turugi is vulgar because it has no Chinese background

Anyone can sound good if they're reading from a script. The fact that you needed to add this qualifier implies that when he's speaking naturally you find him to be an inarticulate and slow speaker.

if i think too much about some sentences i lose confidence in what i thought i understood
i dont worry too much about it cause so far its been getting easier just fine

not sure what made me start i just realized id wanted it for a long time and i could probably do it

not what i said you fucking retard. i said "rehearsed", not reading from a script. as in it's something he's given a lot of thought to and has probably repeated to himself many times over. most people on youtube giving their rehearsed thoughts sound like complete shit. really getting sick and fucking tired of people trying to his big brain.
>>
>>21352955
>i said "rehearsed"
>as in it's something he's given a lot of thought to and has probably repeated to himself many times over.
Again, anyone can sound good if they do this. If anything, reciting lines you've memorized and practised saying several times already is going to have you sounding even better than if you were reading off a script with no rehearsal.

If you're not saying something spontaneously and unrehearsed then sounding good isn't impressive at all. If you want an example of someone who actually has a "high verbal IQ" and speaks well with no rehearsal or script, look up a guy called Lindybeige.

>really getting sick and fucking tired of people trying to his big brain.

what's the point of becoming fluent in japanese if the things I tend to say are not interesting to begin with and I'm already dyslexic in not one but two languages so I can only expect being gloriously dyslexic and boring in my third one as well

I sometimes feel like I have mild dyslexia. Like sometimes I read several pages of a book and just notice I have no idea what I am reading and just have to back and reread from when my mind stopped following along. It's fine if I focus but it's hard to keep it up. Actually might be ADHD.

Anki becomes less of a chore once you got some base vocab behind you and you are mostly just training recognition and recalling with it. Learning new words becomes faster over time too.

Sentence cards are bullshit. Black out the i+1 target word and try to rep your cards. I’ve done this and still got 86% correct. It proves you don’t even need to learn to read the word from these cards.

a huge advantage of sentence cards is that they show you an example of how that word is actually used

which is not a problem. this does not prove that you won't know the word when you see it in a different context later on, which is the important part

lmfao "deep ship"
>>
>>21353321
I think to some extend he is right. But if you consider this in the big picture, you will see the same words in different sentences. At first you might really only understand the word in the context of this one single sentence. But after a while this word will become a word, that helps you learn other new words. It's really quite genius and the most effective way I can imagine on learning new vocab fast. Of course you still need to do other things as well like reading, listening, speaking and maybe even learning some grammar. But I really think that a good Anki deck can make things faster by factors. Especially to get your basic 2000-4000 words.
>>
>>21353321
>a huge advantage of sentence cards is that they show you an example of how that word is actually used
you get that with normal cards with the example sentence on the back
if you don’t even have to look at the word how does the card help you develop the ability to look at the word and get meaning/reading from it?
be honest with yourself sentencefag, how often are you reading and you see a word you don’t know and realize it’s a mature sentence card
>>
>>21353335
Japan is a great country, but their strict rule following is a huge problem and they really need to fix this. I think weed is really the medicine this country needs.
>>
>>21353294
If you can recall and produce the word what is the problem? If you want to be strict you can put the word before the sentence (and hide the sentence if you want to go full autistic) and read that before the sentence forcing you to recall the reading/meaning from the kanji alone.

do you read the example sentence on the back every time? chances are you only read the example sentence when you aren't actually sure what the word means

>AppData\Roaming\Anki2\addons21\morph\__init.py
This makes it so that the addon doesn't even load in anki. Addons in 2.1 require for the py to be in a folder inside the addon folder with all other dependent folders inside as well.

Obviously the first thing I did was install it normally and I got the result as per my previous post when trying to recalc. And I got the same result downloading from github.

Other way around. Getting your sperm to the egg is the biggest fuck up of a lifetime. Literally no good will come of it. Besides them basically ruining your own life, your kids will only add to the clutter, and trust me none of your kids here are going to further man's exploration into space or solve string theory. Not that there's a point to any of that shit anyways but if you think having a baby makes you any less of a piece of shit you're wrong. It makes you worse in my book.

Why are there 2 readings for numbers? not talking about shi/yon ,shichi/nana, etc but Ichi/Hitotsu, Ni/Futatsu and so on. is the first one just for raw numbers and the second for counting things?
>>
>>21354297
raw numbers lmfao
>>
>>21354297
there are several readings for english numbers too. 2 can be read as two, twenty, seco, etc. english was pretty difficult to learn because of this but i'm so used to memorizing readings that japanese has been easy thus far.
