Are you learning Japanese so you can understand your oishi without being dependent on a translator?

Less my oshi and more any Nijisanji streams
It's fun, I enjoy learning Japanese even if I have a peabrain so I learn slowly, and I get to watch vidya while I learn

No as I don't care about what they're saying since it's most likely just basic stuff

>> No.1146193

Over years of anime and video games, I've picked up a decent amount of vocabulary, but I've never formally studied. As a result, I mostly understand sentence fragments and piece together the meaning based on context. Sometimes they'll use some unfamiliar vocabulary though, and then I'm totally stuck.

Partially, yes. My primary interest in learning Japanese extends to being able to consume a variety of forms of untranslated media. I'd also like to help with fan translations at some point if I get proficient enjoy. Learning for purposes of communication and travel is a close second.

The Genki textbooks are pretty commonly recommended.
That's what I'm using and I like them. I am also using Anki to better memorize vocabulary.
I would also recommend checking out this youtube channel for good and succinct explanations

>> No.1148794

I'm not just trying to psyche you out man, Duolingo is dogshit for learning Japanese
Follow a grammar guide and then once you've got a good grasp of it (and katakana and hiragana) use Anki with a recommended deck to build up your kanji knowledge and vocabulary, anything's better than Duolingo really

He is right and you don’t even need to learn shit. Using any translator on live chat and twitter reveal everything. Worse if the woman behind the avatar is a fan of stacies, the topics those engage are no different from twitch stripers.

>> No.1149720

Meh, I started using it literally just yesterday to learn hiragana and eventually katakana (+ I’m writing them over and over) and so far I feel like I’m picking them up without much trouble. I’ve read the reviews about the course as a whole and I don’t expect much from it longterm or even midterm frankly, but so long as it teaches me the syllabaries and some vocab along the way I can get the rest elsewhere. I have Tae Kim’s grammar guide and I downloaded the Genki PDFs today, so I’m not planning on duolingo to carry me all the way or anything.

>> No.1149745

Start doing Kana reps, then learn some grammar from Cure Dolly / Tae Kim on youtube.
Then after having some basic grammar down try learning some vocabulary through Anki decks.

>> No.1152177

learn hiragana and katakana, it should only take 2-4 weeks or so, test yourself using any of the random online kana memory quizzes you can google. then get anki core 2k/6k vocab and do that everyday, however many cards you're comfortable with, kanji seems daunting but i don't really see any reason to hold off on it versus just jumping in as soon as possible, the longer you hold off on it the longer it'll be before you're able to read. get a textbook(and bunpro if you want a grammar SRS), there are a thousand torrents and pdfs you can easily find for genki, minna no nihongo, japanese the manga way, just get whatever you like and stick to it. lingodeer if you want a supplementary phone app. and consume japanese media. in 2-4 years you'll be competent as long as you stick to it, don't waste hours everyday in DJT or japanese learning forums where people senselessly argue about what the most efficient method of learning japanese is while they never actually stick to any method to eventually actually learn japanese. never let a break turn into weeks/months/years of essentially giving up on japanese because one day you didn't feel like doing your reps and you gave in to it and it snowballed from there.

clippers don't clip everything important
learning japanese isn't just for otaku stuff
and at the very least, the discipline you've built up into focused studying every day for years will make it easier to apply the same thing to other stuff

Yeah, for grade schoolers. Or do you want to include 変体仮名?

>> No.1153279

my method for teaching people to memorize kana usually has them learning around 2 columns per day so they never feel overwhelmed.
have them memorize a column of hiragana and write it without any aids, and then add additional rows until they're able to write the entire chart from memory, and then moving on to katakana and doing the same.
too many people talk about getting confused by shit like ツシンソ that i know a lot of people are rushing through the charts/never bothering with handwriting.

My Oishi is already a primarily english speaker but she does do JP collabs. I very recently picked up learning again after like 2 months of Duolingo back in ~2018 so I can watch JP stuff without relying on clips.
