I failed at meeting my goal in December. And I didn't even read a whole LN to offset it. I only finished half of it. I'm on the last chapter of Zero no Tsukaima #3 now and it is getting pretty good. Probably finish it up tonight or tomorrow.

Madan Ou to Vanadis was pretty miserable to watch. There was so much political and military stuff that I pretty much never understood what was going on.

This month I am going back to basics and watching K-ON instead of the harder stuff I usually like to watch. I will probably also watch the first season of Zero no Tsukaima now that I've read all the volumes it covers (I think). Not sure if I will continue with ZnT #4 or try something else.

I'm looking forward to March because I am going to watch all of Chihayafuru before the new season starts in April.

I have a very serious problem and I dont know what to do and was hoping maybe you guys could help. I have gone through the full course of college Japanese classes at my community college and have a pretty good grasp of the language verbally. When people speak I can unerstand them 90% of the time. The problem is I have difficulty responding to them and tend to not make sense when speaking and have bad verbal habits. In addition to all of that I can read decently but when trying to read comments on 2chan and youtube I have trouble. Does anyone know what I can do to try to fix these problems and is it worth just starting over and doing it the djt way? Also when I refer to speaking I mean with actual japanese people so it's not like I'm chatting with random weebs or something.

I was planning on teaching english in Japan. It's been my dream since I was little.
>>
>>20617068
Oh fuck no, dude. I was being facetious originally but you severely underestimate how much of a shit show that is because anime and manga has blinded you.

Save for a holiday instead, trust me. You don't want to experience living in a sharehouse with other immigrants eating instant Ramen because the agency you work for pays you a below average wage. You don't want your school, teachers and such whoring you out at the local train station handing out tissues every day you're not working to make them think their local institution is going international.

You will be in the bum-fuck nowhere. No one will speak English, no one will have any concept of your culture and you'll be praying everyday that the monotony of your life might be interrupted by a stranger to save you from it, a friend if you will. Think being incel but with everyone.

You'll miss the weather back home, you'll miss the smell, things will get boring fast, you'll realise that the memes aren't true; that Japan is just another country with a different architecture that makes it look differently. The vending machines are normal. The place bieng clean is normal. The fact that you're not being robbed is the same as the fact that you're not being robbed when you go to the shop back home too.

You'll pray that you don't get an asshole of a kid who doens't embody your fantasy of a school that follows strict protocol and makes a mockery of the teacher that can't speak Japanese.

You'll want to visit akihabara, shinjuku, shibuya and so on. You'll need to save for it, you'll be denied entrance to places, you'll have to deal with rush-hour in a mega city which is not pleasant and you'll realise that most people are working themselves to death out of custom rather than necessity. 16 hour work week, most of it is sleeping with the 8 hours you get to spend home if you ever manage to graduate to salary man.

You'll think that a Japanese girl being intimate with you is a good thing, but over time you'll realise that bad communication leads to a disfunctional relationship that you'll get to experience the true wrath of Japanese women who are subordinate like the memes. Do. Not. Do. It. Do something else, save some money, go on a long vacation and be happy.

As a foreigner, you're going to get shit job prospects unless you're coming in as a HSFP. I think one of the better ways of describing it is that Japan isn't much different from China when it comes to perspective of foreigners. If you're a consultant, and I mean a proper one, you'll typically sit in a meeting silently while the other people are screaming at each other over some trivial issue that they don't want to change. Then at the end, you'll say something, everyone will agree, go to the local bar and forget it all at the bottom of a glass.

If you're not a proper professional, you'll simply be a token foreigner that they use to make the company look good. A dancing monkey or white monkey.

And if you're neither of the above, you'll basically have worst job prospects than back home. Maybe you can be a tour guide for English people, maybe you'll crash your maricar as everyone looks on in schadenfreude. Most likely you'll be an English teacher until you go broke and have to return home having never spent a significant amount of time near the places you dreamt about.

I mean it is better to just watch anime for pure enjoyment reason than to have convinced it is a deep medium. Whenever someone says an anime is dark or pretentious I laugh.

I can't tell if it's because I have a huge brain or not but I've seen Matt claim on several occasions that there's "massive theory" behind AJATT and input, and that "you need to internalize all of it" in order to buy into it.

I don't know. I think that for most normal people who only speak one language, the idea of learning just from input doesn't make much sense if they don't know the theory behind it.
It made sense to me, cause I learned english even though I made no conscious effort towards it at all. I played games, watched movies, read books etc. in English just cause there wasn't much interesting content in my native language.

Japanese "words" aren't especially complex. If you know all the kanji involved, then you can immediately understand the word within and (usually, not always) guess the pronunciation as well. It's especially telling how similar it is to German's word count given both of their habits of conjoining words.

I already have substantial experience with Chinese so I don't think practicing kanji will be particularly difficult for me (If I learn it along with each vocab word, rather than learning all of the readings of each kanji).

ザワルド!時を止まれ
>>
>>20624535
no u

anyway, im absolutely certain that 時間 means "time" and i dont trust anki decks are they are likely made by gaijins
>>
>>20624582
時 means time as a concept 時間 means time as you would usually use it. It's not that hard, you would learn this if you did your flashcards.
>>
>>20624593
then it should say "time as a concept", instead of just "time"

i bet when the 時間 shows up it'll just say "time" aswell

i guess this is why you are told to learn nihongo before doing anki, because this is gay and misleading
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M67OhnFiZT4#t=23
>>
>>20624619
The deck is Japanese-English. Both of those terms are translated "time" in normal English usage.
>>
>>20624619
buddy if you just learned nihongo in the first place there would be no reason to use anki
now go get you some eroge and get to work
>>
>>20624619
時間 also means hour in japanese as >>20624603
pointed out. It's just used as a generic word for time too.
It's not misleading if you put a little thought into it.
>>
>>20624619
This is a general problem you'll encounter with East Asian languages. For some goddamn reason the Chinese decided that one-syllable words weren't good enough, so they added nonsense second syllables to perfectly good one-syllable words. Those one-syllable words didn't fall totally out of style though, so you have very similar but now somewhat conceptually distinct words with the same first character.
>>
wait til he finds out about かける
>>
How do you say "People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff." in japanese?
>>
>>20624630
>>20624636
>>20624656
>>20624682
sure, but they could atleast have made the description a bit more detailed instead of just plopping in "time" and be done with it

this is just making me look up every kanji i see just to be sure that its actually correct now

She's a bit odd and I can't really judge at my skill level, but for those two videos it really helped. It wasn't the main subject of the video, but 13 in particular helped a little with me not understand why に shows up "seemingly randomly" in sentences sometimes. Like Tae Kim has "いい友達に会った。" as an example sentence but I never understood why it was に and not が.

It's much more useful to learn words than kanji. Good luck trying to memorise every reading of 生. It's much more useful to know how to read 生きる、生める、先生. Or 少し、少ない、少年.
KKLC (Kodansha's Kanji Learner's Course) helps you with that. You can buy it on amazon or download it, but there are also anki decks available.
