Do you split new words and reviews in anki?

I wonder how people can get like 70-80% right everyday when they learn new words.

Aaron Sanchez

Back in my days we made mods delete threads that didn't have the standard issue image for djt threads.

Jaxon Miller
Jaxon Miller

yes do new words either before or after reviews

Noah Ortiz
Noah Ortiz

Back in your days the mods probably hadn't given up on DJT yet

Luke Gomez
Luke Gomez

I don't split them, but it probably doesn't make a difference

No one looks at the percentage of new words you get right on the first or second try though, that doesn't matter. Mature cards and true retention are what matters.

Jayden Cruz
Jayden Cruz

How effective is just reading and learning words through that instead of doing anki? Does not doing anki equal not learning? (Or at least not learning at a meaningful pace)

I've heard some people were doing this a while ago, but I haven't been in DJT threads for some time now and don't know if skipping anki is even worthwhile. I know I'm not going to be learning at 100% the speed of anki, but if I can learn at a somewhat close enough pace, than I think having fun reading instead of slaving away at anki might be a better thing to do for me.

]I hate anki so much it's gotten to the point where I've stopped and started learning japanese a few times because of it. I feel like not using anki is my only way to success. But then again, I don't want to take a a decade to reach a suitable level either.

What do you guys think of this advice from Tae Kim? It's a bit different than what I usually see proposed but it kind of fits how I've learned other things. Is this self-justification for walking into a trap, or could this work?

I personally recommend the “firehose” method of dumping your brain with TONS of interesting content. This means plowing through pages of books and manga, hours of dialogue, and conversation practice forgetting more words than remembering them. Don’t sit around wasting time entering and reviewing what you’ve already seen, just get more, more, and MORE STUFF!!! You’ll be surprised at how much just seems to stick somehow like osmosis. Some people feel this is not effective because they end up forgetting so much stuff. They don’t realize that the fact that they even remember forgetting it means they’re learning it.

I don’t know, maybe I’m just weird…

Julian Wright
Julian Wright

Luis Rivera
Luis Rivera

Just stop doing anki then. If your memory isn't rat's-ass horrific then you should still be able to learn words by looking them up as you read. All anki does is expose you to a bunch of common ones ahead of time so it's easier for you to recognize them in practice.

Jose Kelly
Jose Kelly

Isn't that the same approach Steve Kaufmann suggests?

Carson Sullivan
Carson Sullivan

Amazing how often someone asks the same question as me while I'm typing it.

Grayson Bailey

I've been doing Anki for 2 months. Every time I try to read something I have to look up like half the words/kanji, though I feel I'm getting better as the deck progresses.
So yeah it will take 10 years if you do it that way.
I don't know how you can hate anki, are you sure you were doing it right? Not one fucktillion new words per day? Not skipping days? Using the Core deck?

Thomas Lee
Thomas Lee

anki is effective if you are focusing on something specific in the short term and using flash cards to memorize whats required to meet that goal

"memorizing all the kanji" is not a specific short term goal

learning by necessity is prolly the way to go when it comes to terminology granted you have a functional nihongo base where you can ask questions as well as tie your own shoes

do you wanna know something sick

when you learn a new word its funny how you start seein it all over the freakin place!!

Dylan Ortiz
Dylan Ortiz

Also you don't have reviews while reading. Anki is also used as a tool to make decks with and review words you encounter in the wild.

Austin Martinez
Austin Martinez

I did this for a long time. It works until a point where you have learned every very common word and then you're not getting anywhere. You're just not gonna come across the words you need to learn often enough for them to stick, and there's a shitton of words you need to learn.

I've been doing a mining deck for almost 3 months now at an average of 22 cards a day and the efficiency increase is dramatic. It's also surprisingly fun to do a mining deck since you can see your vocab increase each day

Levi Hall
Levi Hall

In the end it depends on how often you need to come across something for it to stick.

A mining deck might be the best use of anki though, as a way to schedule that exposure to semi-rare vocab so you don't trip all the time when you read. Out of curiosity how much time do you spend on that deck per day?

living in tokyo for starters is a good way

maybe you can just watch a whole bunch of tv like gaki no tukai ya arahende など to make up for it if you cant just fly to tokyo tonight

Gabriel Morgan
Gabriel Morgan

I just put them into my vocab deck, but also record an example sentence (I usually don't have one for random mined words). If it attaches to a word, I mark it with a ~ mark like "~からには" to differentiate grammar elements from ordinary vocab. With all the hiragana only shit in my deck, this helps a ton.

Brayden Hill
Brayden Hill

The DoJG Anki deck is one of the worst things ever made.

Grammar should never be done through Anki - unlike vocab, it's too complex and context-reliant to be squeezed onto flashcards, so you either have these enormous cards which are awful for the quick recollection that Anki is designed for, or cards which miss a lot of the depth and subtlety required to actually understand the grammar point in the wild. Consulting DoJG is good and useful, but you should learn grammar from reading. Attempting to do it through Anki will only cripple your progress.

Austin Williams
Austin Williams

Ban evasion is against the rules.

Gabriel Allen

Adam Thomas

You know you don't have to read the entire card every time, right?
Do you know what "からでないと" means? If you do, you press "Good" and you're done with the card as quickly as with a vocab card.
If not, you can look at the rest card and read as much information as you need to remind yourself. Usually the first example sentence is enough.

If you feel you're not getting anything out of it, you probably aren't.

Reading and actually analyzing fifty pages of a light novel per day is a thousand times more efficient and fun than doing reps, and takes roughly the same time. Plus you'll actually be exposed to incredibly cool words.

Nobody ever learned a language by treating it like a test preparation.

Mason Walker

But really, it's actually just a university exam for JP101/102 credit, but I'm paranoid about not knowing enough vocab, because I remember my actual Japanese class vocab being a grabbag of various JLPT levels.

Kevin Martin

That reminds me

Preparing for a japanese embassy exam with a two week trip to japan
Spend three weeks prior to the exam dedicating four hours a day to grammar and vocabulary
Day before the exam stay up until 3 reading n1 level literature shit
Exam's most complicated question was about the use of datte as but/because or even.

Learned a ton of shit but it was still painful.

Alexander Peterson
Alexander Peterson

This is the situation that I'm hoping for, but it's also the situation I'm in.

There's no list of vocab or covered grammar, so the entire exam is a black box. I've heard conflicting information about the other languages and its difficulty (from laughably easy to horribly hard).

I'm just reading as much as I can and flipping through grammar dictionaries to be as prepared as possible for the worst case scenario.

Really, if anyone has taken a college-level placement exam for this kind of thing, It'd be nice to know how it went.

Daniel Moore
Daniel Moore

Honestly unless you practice handwriting a lot your time is probably best spent only on that.

When I took my college placement exam I'm pretty sure I got every question right but the "listening" section consisted of hearing spoken sentences and filling in a missing kana. Since I could read well I could even guess most of the kana without hearing the sentence but I couldn't actually remember how to write the kana fast enough to keep up with the questions.

Zachary Morgan

It's not such a big deal. I went to a similar exam and all I had to do was to translate a few pages from a book that was called something like Mr. Gen's Story.

Connor Foster
Connor Foster

If you're taking it because you need the certificate for something then it's fine. DJT just hates people who act like the JLPT is the sole reason to learn Japanese.

By the way, the issue isn't that you assess yourself to be that level, it's that you cared about the JLPT at all.

It's funny when you put a word into your mining deck because you think it's an interesting one but probably pretty rare and you don't expect to meet it for a while again, and then it turns out to be an overused phrase that comes up literally every second VN you read like 木漏れ日.

File format is mp3. Label format is kana - kanji.mp3 , for example:
たいさん - 退散.mp3
That mega folder contains every single audio recording used in the online JDIC dictionary.

http://forum.koohii.com/post-122413.html#pid122413
In case you don't want to read through the thread, the following should be everything you'd need. Directly copy/pasted from the thread:

"For Anki Users:
"[sound:{{text:Reading}} - {{text:Expression}}.mp3]" can be placed into the Answer field to play the sound file. The readings must not have furigana.
I didn't like 128,275 .mp3 files sitting in my Anki folder so I wrote a program that will extract only the needed files from the big zip file.
Download the JDIC Audio Extraction Tool via MediaFile (source code is included)

To use:
1) From Anki, export your words deck as facts only to a .txt file.
2) Open JDIC Audio Extractor, fill in all of the fields, click OK.
You can edit in.txt if you don't want to manually fill in the fields each time.

I also didn't like how mplayer (the media player included with Anki) often times doesn’t play small files to completion. So I wrote a media player that DOES play small files to completion (well, actually I just modified the "contest" example program that comes with the Bass audio library).
Download bassplayer 2.1 via MediaFile (requires Windows; source code is included)
Place bassplayer.exe and bass.dll in the Anki install folder (you should see mplayer.exe there). Then just download and edit Anki's Custom Media Player 2 plugin to use bassplayer instead of mplayer. "

He pretty clearly seems to only be using Core so that's how I took it.
However that is pretty much all anki does even if you use it for something like kanji, which I did for around 5 months. That's not to say being able to recognize a couple thousand kanji at a glance without having to learn each new one you come across isn't helpful.
With words that's not too much trouble though so I prefer to just read and have jisho open than drill a few dozen new anki cards every day.

An issue is that since they changed the examination setup in 2010, they no longer officially released vocabulary lists, meaning you aren't really going to get a legitimate list online that is up to date.

しかし2週間後くらいから徐々に、白髪の部分のカラーが落ちて、一ヶ月たった今では、金色?薄茶?になってしまいました。ダークブラウンに染めた全体は、きれいに染まったままです。(伸びてきた部分を除いて)
日本でも白髪染めはしたことがないのですが、これは普通でしょうか?それとも、通常のカラーだったのでしょうか?(白髪染めは英語でなんと言いますか?)

"I have 2 questions
Here (USA's) when getting hair coloring, recently, my white hairs have been on the rise so i stated I want the gray hairs covered. It came out good, cant see the white hairs. However 2 weeks later slowly the gray hair portions color have faded, 1 month later, gold? light brown maybe? its become. All the portions stained dark brown remain beautifully stained (excluding the grown hair). I have not gotten dye in japan but, is this normal? also is this normal color?

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I figure someone here might know. I was looking for some Japanese music albums and I stumbled upon a 2ch thread that seems to be their equivalent of /mu/'s sharethreads. Problem is, instead of links, they post a string of characters. What am I supposed to do with these?

Anyone take the jlpt? How strict is the passing? I googled but not sure of the explanations.

I bought official practice tests for jlpt 5, 4 and 3. I am aiming for 3 but first did 5 and 4 as a warm up and to access where i'm at. I got 97% of all answers correct on 5 and 94% of all answers on 4. Surely those would be easy passes right?

Assuming that the を is superfluous, and the だ is as well, it would mean "She exists", but even that's wrong since modern Japanese uses the verb いる for living creatures instead of the ある used here.

By which I meant that the idiot who wrote that failure of a sentence was not consciously attempting to use を as an interjectory particle.

Classical Japanese is going to be hard no matter when you start it but you gotta at least be able to read J-J dictionaries comfortably.

You should really rethink what your goals are though since learning classical Japanese just to be an epic language wota is pretty gay
you'd be better off just learning 3 european languages and then calling yourself a polyglot to get pussy

Blake Moore
Blake Moore

If you really are at an intermediate level, not too hard. An excellent resource is Classical Japanese: A Grammar, by Haruo Shirane. Great book.

A good grounding in formal Classical grammar will also be a huge help in understanding many expressions and usages in modern Japanese as well. Probably the hardest parts are learning the older conjugation paradigms and accepting that the 已然形 (the えば formation) is not used the same way as in modern.

For many of the things written in classic Japanese you can also read modern translations, which is how Japanese people read them (except for whatever sections they study in high school).

Take a look at that book I recommended before you write it off for now. It can really help a huge amount in your contemporary studies.

For example, did you ever wonder why べき attaches to the dictionary form of every single verb except for する where it becomes すべき? When you know the difference between the terminal and attributive forms of a verb (which have collapsed into each other in modern Jap), it becomes clear.

If you don't want to receive this or any other book at home, there are many book scanning services in Japan. They will cut, scan, OCR and send you the PDF of any book you want. Scanning fees for one book start at 100円 usually (so cheap!), and since it's going to be destroyed anyway you can order used books. There is a bazillion of those for 1円 plus shipping on Amazon Japan.

I've done core2k/6k with 40 cards for 2 months, separated at the start and mixed at the end, and my retention didn't really fluctuate from the usual 90 %. Now I'm back to separated because I fell into the habit of constantly looking at the bottom to see whether it's a new or old card.

Nolan Long
Nolan Long

70~ is still considered good? I do 30 new cards a day and get about 73%~ after them. Before the new cards I'm at around 83-90% usually.

90%
Is this after new cards? How? Did you do RTK, or vocab only?

Leo Edwards
Leo Edwards

thx, that's a little useful.

Brandon Reed

70~ is still considered good?
God, no. You should be getting no lower than 85%, at the very worst. Generally it should hang around 90%.

I hate core 6k, constantly whine that it's a giant waste of time, and I think its benefits are widely over-exaggerated by those who aren't anywhere near fluent.

Yet even I get 90%+. Any lower and you're not really learning, just wasting time. It isn't a long, numbers game where enough 70%'s add up to 100% by the end. It's just an inefficient waste.

Luke Walker

Well I get higher when I stop new cards for a day or two. I have a hard time believing you get 90 with 30 new ones a day

It's better these days because I lowered my new cards across all my decks so I have more time to read instead of doing Anki, pic related is 20 cards a day.
Vocab only, my only other decks are DOJG and my mining deck.

I'm not really sure why it's so high, I'm actually pretty autistic with pressing again if I don't remember the nuance quite right or get my vowels mixed up. When I started out it was 70-80 %, then I did a couple cramming sessions every 3 days reviewing my fucked up cards and ever since then it floated around 90 %.
What helps me is not listening to music/TV or anything, not opening /djt/ every 5 minutes and not doing Anki when I'm tired.

Also noticed I wasn't doing 40 cards for two months, more like one to one and a half.

Most common opinion that I see on /djt/ is that 70+ is acceptable, 80+ is good. If you're doing core2k with <85 you're not wasting your time, don't let antagonize-kun demotivate you.

Cooper Rivera

I think one of you is talking about young cards and the other about mature cards.
Mature cards definitely should be over 90%, 95% even, but as long as you reach that point it doesn't matter how high your young card retention is.

I listen to the sentence, shadow the pronunciation, and write the kanji down in the afternoon, with definitions and pronunciation in different color inks. And make a mnemonic if I'm having difficulty. I also pick up the grammar points used in the sentences, and look them in jisho for related sentences so there's less new secondary material in the future to study. And production only, as recognition is a placebo meant only for visual novel easymoder's who only want the gist of the sentence.

And I only do 20 new core 6k words a day, because more give diminished returns and clog my brain. There's no problem lowering the number you do if it means you learn more effectively.

Most common opinion that I see on /djt/ is that 70+ is acceptable, 80+ is good.
Most of djt are idiots though. There's no reason to settle for an average score, Japanese is so difficult that it basically requires dedication, because there's no way to half-ass it yet be serious about learning it. You can't get stronger if you stick with what's easy for you.

I'm serious. Don't settle for less.

Ryan Ward
Ryan Ward

If you're doing core2k with <85 you're not wasting your time, don't let antagonize-kun demotivate you.
Actually it's a fairly well known statistic that your daily reps will be around 10 times your new cards per day. In other words, if you take 30 new cards a day, you will have about 300 reps each day. With 90% success rate, obviously, that means 30 cards that you forgot (you got 10% of 300 wrong). You learned 30 new cards and forgot 30 cards, which means you're barely maintaining your level.
If your success rate is under 90%, you're actually forgetting cards faster than you're learning them, and at that point it becomes impossible to learn japanese.

Mason Parker

It's the copula. Same as じゃない/ではない, but without the は, which sometimes happens. Another example is the expression でないと

Seriously. I'm at 92% () and I feel anki is a struggle where I'm fighting to learn. Yet I'm retaining nearly 20% better than others ITT?

Motivating people is good and all, but they need to understand that this takes effort and you have to work at it to get anywhere, otherwise you're just treading water and pretending it's swimming.

1) Is there any recommended audio way of learning spoken Japanese? I have a 2 hour commute to and from work every day, I figure I could be productive with that time instead of listening to Vocaloid music that I can only understand after I look it up.

2) Are there people who simply learn the vocalized / spoken japanese and never learn the written? I can speak, understand and read a second language (Spanish), but if you ask me to write it, I can't catch things like accents correctly because I was taught by uneducated native speakers.

3) Is there some explained reason why people who speak Spanish sound like they can fluently speak Japanese if they wanted to learn it, or the other way around? This is a shitty example, but when Bleach entered that arc Aizen and shit, their pronunciation of words like "Hueco Mundo" and "Espada" sounded like they came straight from a native speaker.

I find that the pronunciation thing has a lot to do with how weird vowels sound in English. For example, the way the Japanese pronounce "coup d'etat" is much better than the way the English speaking people do it.

Well, I meant an educational audio method. I mean, yeah, I can listen to anime, but I don't know what is being said. I already listen to vocaloid, so that isn't much different in my opinion.

THIS is what I meant. This pimsleur looks pretty useful, but the price is rather steep. Would you say it was worth the purchase? I know it's subjective, but I think having a good review from even one person who is using it is enough for me to at least consider it for the price.

I'm going through a radical deck in Anki and came across this card.

I thought it was a bit weird that it would be called "turban", so I looked it up on Jisho and Jisho has it listed as being the "cloth radical":

Seems like the Anki version might be right. Decided to look up the word "turban" in Jisho and came across this:
黄巾の乱

The 巾 kanji/radical is used here to write "Turban" in "The Yellow Turban Rebellion".

I guess I was a bit stupid to find the "turban" meaning weird considering that the kanji don't come from Japan, but rather China.

I passed JLPT N1 and can write like 2500 kanji because I have production cards for those in anki....but I'd struggle writing like half of the kana without cheating and looking at surrounding text because I learned those years ago and never actually have to write them.
Reading and writing definitely are completely different skills, and if you don't use them, you'll forget stuff.

(I could probably just grind it out again in an afternoon if I actually needed it, but so far I really have no reason to)

Easton Mitchell
Easton Mitchell

but I can never remember how to write it unless I'm looking at the specific character
Why do you care about being able to produce them from memory at this point?

Also it's probably because kana are so simple they have more in common with one another, whereas kanji are more complex and thus more distinct from each other.

Ran into this sentence in 吾輩は猫である:
この垣根の穴は今日に至るまで吾輩が隣家の三毛を訪問する時の通路になっている。
The context being a cat describing the a hole in a fence through which he got to his new house.
(see first appearance of 三毛 in http://www.aozora.gr.jp/cards/000148/files/789_14547.html)

My own interpretation was "I still use this hole in the fence when I go visit the tortoiseshell cat at the neighboring house", while the translation I've been using as a reference says (translated to English) "On that particular day, the hole in the fence served as a shortcut to the neighbor's (literal?) tortoisehell"

三毛 aside (translator got me there, she's an actual character with an awkwardly-translated name), I feel like the translator got the temporal aspect wrong. How do you interpret this sentence?

I've been picking nits out of professionally-produced mainstream TV subtitles for too long to have any delusions about the infallibility of the people who produce them. They can and do miss technical terms, let idioms slip by and settle on a plausible-but wrong translation for a complicated sentence.

Have you ever run into problems with Anki's restriction on unique first fields?

I'm not sure whether I should download the "unique ID" add-on, because always seeing the note ID as the first field when editing notes must be annoying as fuck.
Then again, without unique IDs I must put contextualizations in the front field (e.g. "[Japanese]" before the actual content of the Front field), and can't have it in a field named "context" and then put it in front through card templates, which would lead to unique first field errors. Having a context field seems like much easier to edit notes with

Right now, I have those fields:

Front
Back
Hint (shown on front)
Illustration (not sure where I should put it)
Remark (shown on back)
Sources
(Tags)

Should I install the unique ID add-on?
Should I have a context field?
Should I put illustrations on the front or back?
