My Japanese language learning is fueled with hatred to the Japanese. I am jealous at how they're good at everything from anime to cars to space programs. With those things, the Japanese should have the right look down on other Asians and get away with murder and rape that they did on other countries. Most Asians think that the Japanese are rich people. The people here think that Japanese people are hard-working rich people, but I don't believe so. They're pathetic, unhappy people who are just too dumb to invent anything. I wish I could look down on the Japanese, but I can't because they're way too good at everything.

cont. The only thing they're bad at is English. Being bad at English doesn't mean they're dumb, it just means that they're culturally superior to any other race. While most of the people here are good at English which is generally useless on other fields while the Japanese are good at science, calculus, and physics which is generally useful on almost any fields. Many Asian countries rely to the Japanese on anything technology related but nobody relies on these countries on anything technology related which is sad.

Cameron Martin

cont. I used to idolize Japan a lot especially their weather and nature. The Sakura trees are beautiful, their cities are clean and safe, and how their history is so great. But there are some people who has awoken of the Japanese dream. Japan is just like any other country out there. I realized there's nothing good in Japan if you scrap out the anime fever. Everything is claustrophobic, Japanese people look down on you for being white, black, or brown. Their behavior is worse than the Korean's plastic surgery. They think they're innocent of the war crimes that their forefathers did. Nothing is good in living or working in Japan. I'd rather stay on my home and help my country to be better than Japan even though it's impossible to achieve that in my lifetime, but I know it will come in the future. It will come in the future.

Thesis/End.

Core 2k/6k Optimized Japanese Vocabulary

How good will my Japanese be after I'm done with that deck? (let's say I'm done with the grammar as well)
I mean there are 1608 kanji in that deck, but there exist quite a few more than that.

Will I already be good enough, so I only add words I don't know every now and then, or do I have to go for another deck after that?

Nicholas Morris
Nicholas Morris

LNs and VNs are trash. Just like manga.
I didn't say anything about money. A language like Japanese is useless since it's only used in one country and this country produces mostly garbage media.

Anki won't help you in learning vocabulary. It is mainly used as a placebo.

Ryan Lewis
Ryan Lewis

Ok I'll bite, what do you suggest then?

I'm currently using anki for the 2k6 deck and the yotsubato reading deck alongside it, so I can put my Japanese to some use soon, since I think using the language is when you really start to learn it.

What's wrong with it, or what could I improve?

Cameron Murphy
Cameron Murphy

Bentley Foster

Doing the entire deck is probably not a good idea. Going at a pace of more than 20 cards a day ends badly for most people (poor retention, tons of reviews each day), and at that pace it would take you 300 days to get through it. After 2000 words, it's best to make the jump to mining. It'll be hard at first, but spending the best part of a year just drilling vocab would feel very tedious and unrewarding, I expect, and even if you did it, your vocab would still be too small to read comfortably.

Dylan Jackson

I don't want to talk like a news caster, but I still need to be able to understand them when I watch the news.

I don't want to talk like an anime hero would, but I still need to be able to understand them when I watch anime.

I don't want to talk like an action movie star, but I still need to be able to understand them when I watch action movies.

I don't want to talk like an ancient samurai, but I still need to be able to understand them when I watch historical drama.

Learning from all of these sources are fine, as INPUT is entirely different than OUTPUT. You should strive to experience a wide variety of inputs to be able to understand things in general.

A lot of anime in particular can have Slice of Life style situations too, so it's not that far removed from normal everyday dialogue.

Benjamin Perry
Benjamin Perry

For future reference (on how to tell if something is a shitpost):
calls the community made guide/whatever method a piece of shit with no reasoning given why
insults someone giving helpful advice with no reasoning given why
attempts to create arguments over virtually nothing (eg opinions without facts)
"spam questions" that are easily answered via a 1 second glance at the guide
uses obtuse Japanese fragments interspersed with English to attempt bypass people trying to filter the shitposts
any mention of anime being shit, or "real Japanese"
spells the word as romanji
It's pretty easy to tell at this point.

For newcomers, if in doubt, use the guide's advice as a fallback if you're genuinely not sure if it's "shitpost advice" or not.

It's in bright red in the OP image AND the OP text says "Read the guide before asking questions" so there is zero excuse for this spam.

Dylan Hernandez
Dylan Hernandez

Everyone that isn't a complete newfag would spot these shitposters by the way they type alone.

Regulars would know of course.

However, new comers to the thread (and arguably mods who aren't studying Japanese) wouldn't necessarily know. If we don't start calling out the bullshit spam, nothing is going to change - we've been waiting a little while now already.

If we can't rely on mods to actually do their job, we need to make the bullshit more transparent: less people will respond to the spam & more importantly less misinformation will be spread.

Giving them the benefit of the doubt, my best guess is that the mods are ignorant in regards to reading Japanese / this thread's culture.

There have been times in the past when anons did report quite a few of the spam posts, only for the mods to be 100% out of the loop and assume that because the posts have "japanese" in them, they were on topic.

Calling anki a "placebo" is a sure sign too.

Also he samefags an incredible amount, most of the time the replies to his posts are all himself posting back and forth. In the other thread there are 10 posts but only 3 IPs. It's literally all him replying to himself.

This. Anyone new to the thread in the last three months probably has no idea whether the advice they're being given is nonsense or not.

I once messaged them on IRC and they told me to fuck off. I submitted something to feedback too but it's like they've all agreed not to moderate this thread or something.

Jaxson Nguyen
Jaxson Nguyen

Are animefag, generalfag and sakurafag the same person? There's also the guy that hated on EOP briefly, calling them out the same way animefag does (i.e randomly) and the kanji is useless guy from a week ago, I guess they're all animefag's different personas?

Owen Murphy
Owen Murphy

At this point, whether it's 1 or 100 spammers, it does not matter.

Shitposts are shitposts, if they are spamming the thread to the point it hampers conversation something needs to be done about it.

Just keep on as usual, try to post useful info & create constructive conversation. Frequently posting USEFUL info would honestly be an improvement at this point - well reasoned and helpful tips will always drown out the low quality, nonsensical misinformation.

Most of all don't knee-jerk react to some "retarded statement" that is blatantly a shitpost.

I really don't think it would be that hard to tell when someone's just shitposting even for someone new to the thread, and it's only ever been so common as of recently, so I'm not sure it would stay that relevant in the near future, probably better to just address it when it happens

Is Jisho fucking up for anyone else? It's been going on for weeks, but I'm about to hit the breaking point. I have to refresh the page multiple times to get it to load, meaning I end up refreshing 5-10 times every time I want to look up ONE word. This is making it excessively tedious to look up words. Any one know what the heck is happening?

Yes user, posting images of cute anime girls on Friday afternoon is the pinnacle of sophistication.

Given the amount of suggestions made to it (I wake up every day to something between 2 and 10 emails from google docs), yes, I do believe that people read it.

Maybe some user is DDOSing it again.

Works fine on my end.

It's been ages since I've made one of these threads, so that'd be up to whoever makes the next thread and the threads after that. Certainly a viable option, but it would be a bit detrimental to the aesthetics of the OP post.

Juan Mitchell

You're not wrong with the way you categorize his shitposting, but a third party would look at this list and go "wow these autists think all the shitposting on Sup Forums is done by the same guy lmao"

Elijah Lee

The misinformation and redirection is the most damaging part. If you're a beginner and don't even know the difference between hiragana and katakana for example, most advice will seem plausible. By definition, beginners wouldn't know where to seek out the proper advice, after all.

Yeah I had a pretty hard time motivating myself to post on Lang-8, it's pretty aids thinking of shit to write about, when I finally convinced myself to do it I posted like 4 posts and got bored

I'd say HelloTalk is a much better option, it's a lot easier to think of shit to write since it's just casual one on one conversations, it's also quite the motivational boost since every person that adds you is some cute Japanese highschool girl, this also means the conversations get boring fast though

Try to just force yourself to do it, the sooner you do the sooner you realise how irrational your fears were

Something bugs me about onyomi. How did ancient Japanese pick spellings for words? Did the chose from kanji with suitable onyomi the ones that had meanings related to the word or were the words with on-on readings loaned to begin with? The latter would mean that the majority of vocabulary is loanwords.

Charles Gutierrez
Charles Gutierrez

They just borrowed most of them directly from Chinese, and twisted the pronunciation a bit to fit into the Japanese mouth.

Thomas Jones
Thomas Jones

Pretty sure it's explained on this page:
http://www.imabi.net/l5kanjiintro.htm

It's the latter. But it isn't the case that every word that uses onyomi is a loanword. A lot of them were invented later on in Japan.

Asher Rivera

Fuck off.

Lincoln Edwards
Lincoln Edwards

Both of these have happened, though the latter was more typical.
There was also the practice of borrowing just the kanji (along with the on- reading), and combining those to form new expressions in Japanese, after the style of Chinese expressions.
The above actually happens to this day - a lot of scientific and technological terms were coined by the Japanese that way, and some of them were even adopted by the Chinese (or just formed of the same characters by way of coincidence).

I skimmed over it and it's mostly the other forum members talking shit about Sup Forums. The worst thing he says is (I assume he is speaking of Sup Forums as a whole when he says it):
Now, there are a few individuals that try to bring intellectual discourse or sane arguments, but they tend to be cussed out and what not.

The opening post says nothing bad about Sup Forums though. He only made that statement in response to someone else's statement. I'm guessing the screenshot you saw was posted out of context.

I usually read 1 scene a night, which usually takes 1-2 hours. Now I have more free time, so I will take that into consideration.

I already mine and add the words into a custom deck. However, even when I do perfectly fine recognizing the word in the deck, something as simple as a font change will through off that effect. I also practice stroke order and do reverse decks, but it doesn't seem to help much.

Just watch with Japanese subs until you're near fluent. Make sure to replay the line until you understand it without reading along, just like how when reading you want to memorize the words for long enough that you can read through the sentence in one go without re-looking anything up.

Suggestion: get rid of the current guide and revert it to the one which was in place around the time CoR-kun maintained it for a little while, and shortly after it was changed over. That is when good resources and useful descriptions where added to the related sections of the guide, and broken links were fixed up. This was before it was "revamped" with the ego of the current guide maintainer and pointlessly changed.

You know, don't change what ain't broken. Revert back to the previous version, fix up any broken links and leave it as that.

Not that guy, but I just gave this a try for the first time. Great stuff. The lines where you don't even pause are heartening, and the lines where you do pause are genuinely instructive.

VLC hotkeys make this really simple, too:
start an episode, v to disable subs
get to a point where the dialogue is not clear, space to pause
shift+left and/or alt+left to get to the beginning of the line, v to enable subs
pause and skip back as necessary to make sure every word is understood
hit up the dictionary if necessary to look up words
v to disable subs again, space to replay
you can even slow down or speed up playback with [ and ], though you wouldn't want to watch an entire episode slowed down

4chan is a vulgar site that should be put down
We say that sort of shit thousands of times a day on dozens of boards, though. Is this an issue of you can only arbitrarily call Sup Forums shit within a thread and anons will agree but post it on some normalfag space and it makes you some sworn enemy?

DOJG is better than Imabi in every way for most people.
Could say that about Tae Kim's Grammar Guide, Visualizing Japanese Grammar, and a host of other good and free online Japanese learning resources. What's your point? A diversity of resources and viewpoints is useful, isn't it?

My kanji deck only has 540 kanji on the kanji grid so far. You're at least 64 days ahead of my progression. What is your
Card interval considered strong:
value? Mine is 250 but I'm not really sure what it means. A 250 day interval between reviews or something?

Making the guide more useful for beginners would be great. I know I wasted years' worth of self-study with ineffective methods that would have been blown apart by even a little exposure to other people's experience.
So the guide should definitely be a credible and helpful source for beginners.

But teaching people how to evaluate Sup Forums posts for truth and accuracy - that's over the line. Shitposting, plausible-but-wrong advice and trolling are all valued traditions and part of 4chan's identity. Even a complete beginner in Japanese is to be expected to apply critical thinking and understand the spirit of the website.
If you want to be all friendly or lovey-dovey, you are free to do so even on Sup Forums, but not at the expense of other people's shitposting.

Oh, by the way, the upload speed on this image is a load of bollocks. If I actually upload anything at that speed, I become completely unable to download anything (even 100% text-based webpages won't load for me). I have to have my upload speed in my torrent client capped at 16KB/s (0.13Mb), otherwise my internet won't work.

Likewise, downloading at max speed renders my internet pretty much unusable. I have to keep it capped at 150KB/s (1.2Mb) if I actually want to be able to browse the internet and stuff.

It is normal, but you're only supposed to need to cap it to 0.8x your maximum upload speed to get rid of that problem. I have to cap mine at 0.25x my maximum speed.

I'm using Rosetta Stone to learn Japanese, and its working decently so far, but I noticed that theres some options for how things are shown. You have the options of it being in romaji, kana, kanji, or kanji with furigana. What would be the best way to learn? I've done some of it with kanji with furigana, and I seem to figure out the kanji pretty quickly, but the more complicated things get the harder it is for me to figure out. Is this just part of learning the language, or am I making this harder on myself then It should be?

TLDR: Romanji or Kanji+Furigana for Rosetta Stone learning?

P.S Thanks for the comments guys! I think I'm going to end up getting Genki and using Rosetta Stone on the side (to make me not feel so bad about wasting my money).

I take 10mg methamphetamine twice daily. The best part of it isn't how I can focus while on it, but the way it affects my brain chemistry in general. The only problem is that I feel very slightly nauseous and unappetized whenever I'm on the medication high, which lasts like four to six hours.
