I have a question for you fellow non-native english speakers. How do you approach learning japanese with most of the good available learning material being in english and not in your native language?

Even though I have very good english it creates this certain extra difficulty barrier when learning japanese. Learning grammar isn't really a problem at all but vocabulary is much more difficult for me to retain when the translations are in english. I know the meaning but in my mind I always think and translate it to my native language. The discrepancy of english answer in for example anki and native translation in my head makes words difficult to remember when doing reps.

Noticing this I started to translate Core10k deck which I'm using to my native language and it makes the remembering much easier. Same for kanji meanings, keywords and mnemonics. Some I have in english because for some kunyomi english suits better than my native language (finnish btw).

So my learning process and anki decks are a mismatch of english and finnish translations and it seems to work for me. How about you guys? Any tips and tricks learning japanese as a non-native english speaker?
>>
>>100530564

I have everything in English and it usually doesn't cause trouble except for a few words like 賦課 where I haven't even heard the English translation before.
For some synonym-heavy words, like everything that simply translates into "first" in English, I put some annotations in my language to make the difference clearer.
>>
>>100530564
I haven't really thought about it. I seem to translate to either English or native interchangeably.
Sometimes one or the other will just have a better word or concept that represents what I'm reading and that'll stick better.

It's not like I'm going to punish myself in Anki if I don't hit the exact same word that they use for something.
>>
>>100530564
My native language is not English but my English is native level so I haven't experienced any difficulties.
>>
>>100530564
My English comprehension was good enough when I started that I've never really thought twice about using it as a base to learn Japanese. It helps that the material available in my language (Swedish) is terribly limited compared to what's available in English, too.

So yeah, I'm not really able to help you there. "Do whatever seems to work" is about the best I can offer.

頑張ってね☆
>>
>>100530564
I don't really consider that much of a problem, If I don't know the English word but I think it's useful then I learn it.
I associate words with meaning, usage, with other words via translation, contrast, nuance, colocation , cognates, look-alikes, sound-alikes, theme etc

It does not let you set your review speed, or times, or number of reps. It forces you to use a predefined slow as fuck pace for learning. It forces you to pay. You're paying for a less customizable Anki. There's no reason to do this.

>>100534144
If you are not even sure whether you want to learn Japanese or not, don't bother starting, you'll fail.
>>
>>100534144
If you like learning it as much as you want to use it, sure whatever. Otherwise you won't have enough drive to do it. As your skill grows, you find new things to do with it and it opens up new avenues of interest, but you have to enjoy learning it above everything else.

You're seriously overestimating what you know with only 1 year of classes. Most people here finish genki 1-2 in half that time just because no one tells them not to.

How is "this is made of this, and this" abstract? They probably realize that anyways, I'm sure they do, it'd be impossible not to, but they don't utilize that and just learn in order of usefulness. I think any kid could do it though the other way, it's just that in order to get the useful stuff quickly enough in school, they'd have to teach a lot instead of ingraining the knowledge over years and in the end may be worse than how they have it now.
But yes, I think any kid could learn that way.

It's actually very abstract and under 8, a kid can't even recognize that there's the same amount of water in a tall skinny glass that got poured from a short fat one.

Not to say that they don't use mnemonics, but it's like people who don't do RtK, but naturally do the method. They are an exception and it's not taught that way.

But the real issue is the one that heisig accounted for. We are adults and we know big complex words that happen to be components of very complex kanji used for simple words.

Is 200 new kanji a day a doable amount?

I've been doing 100, but it's taking too long. I want to get all of these new cards out of the way so I only have to worry about kanji reviews and I can focus my attention on vocab.
>>
I went to a library and found a english-japanese dictionary. It was mostly composed of example sentences. Do they try to teach you the particles first?

>>100539365
You really won't be seeing any effect unless you do 500 a day, at least.

Step on it.
>>
>>100539365
Before you started learning English, how long did you spend learning all the different ways the letter "o" can be pronounced and which contexts go with which sounds?

Now multiply that amount of time by 20,000, and study kanji for that long before learning any words.
>>
>>100539636

Oh, I'm not bothering with readings. I'm just learning the meanings since I remember the readings easier when doing vocab.

I have trouble remembering the appearance of kanji when doing vocab, it all blurs together in my mind, so I needed to slow down on my vocab deck and focus on individual kanji. It's definitely working since it's much easier for me to remember vocab now, but at a pace of 100 a day it's going to take me another week and a half to finish this before I can get back to vocab.

That's too long and this so boring and easy.
>>
>>100539845
You seem to forget that you'll be doing 500+ reviews a day for the next couple of months this way. It doesn't count until those cards are long since matured.
>>
>>100539845
I'm too new to tell whether you're rusing me or not.
>>
>>100539995

That's fine with me. Only takes a little over 15 minutes to knock out the 200-some reviews that I currently have. The 100 new cards part takes a bit longer because I have to think of mnemonics for each one so that I can retain them, but the review part takes up a fraction of the study time.

>>100540152

>>100540332

So I'm trying to identify this kanji, the top right part is like キ or 土, under that it is connected to マ and on the left side the person radical you see in 住 I've tried using the radical search on denshi jisho but it doesn't find it so I must have a wrong radical anyone able to help.
>>
>>100540423

>>
>>100540372

Yeah, that's the only thing I care about for this kanji deck. If I can look at the kanji and remember the keyword then I pass it onto reviews. Not paying attention to the readings because I want to get through this as quickly as possible and go back to vocab, since I actually enjoyed learning that and it was a fun challenge.

I just want to improve my recognition of kanji so that I can continue my vocab deck without mixing up similar looking kanji whenever I see any jukugo.

Any metric for language learning is subjective as all hell and useless to judge anything by. Just look at what classes consider acceptable. Jouyou is just as arbitrary and a terrible measure of actual vocabulary.

This is purely anecdotal, but after doing some of KD I nearly doubled my daily vocab. But in that time I also got more used to the language and using anki correctly.

The human mind's ability to memorize things is near limitless when trained properly, so a trained mind could easily memorize far more than that.

>The 2006 World Memory Champion, Clemens Mayer from Germany, used a 300-point-long journey through his house for his world record in "number half marathon", memorising 1040 random digits in a half hour. Gary Shang has used the method of loci to memorise pi to over 65,536 digits.
>Using this technique a person with ordinary memorisation capabilities, after establishing the route stop-points and committing the associated images to long-term memory, with less than an hour of practice, can remember the sequence of a shuffled deck of cards. The world record for this is held by Simon Reinhard at 21.19 seconds.

It's great until you want to use anki and lose all your progress. Not to mention most of the decks are terrible compared to the effort put in by ankiphiles. Because of memrise, I have all these words I mysteriously know and regularly forget.

When I first tried using CorewhateverK I was doing 200+ new cards a day, but I already knew a ton of Japanese and had just let it get rusty, so I was dumping probably 3/4 of the cards into easiest category and never had to see them again

But then I realized Core a shit for someone like me and I just started making my own decks off of mining from what I read. I don't remember exactly how many cards I was doing before I just said fuck it and realized that I was reading enough that I didn't even need to use Anki anymore, but it was probably only 20 or so new words a day, or less if I wasn't running into anything I didn't already know in what I was reading.

Is there any program for Windows or app for Android that is teaching just the useful readings for kanji and also has every sign divided radical by radical?

I think that it is better to learn it as some kind of a "story" behind every sign than learning it as a whole sign, for ex. 猫 is made out of these radicals, which means this, this and this or 地下鉄 means ground-under-iron, so it's something made out of iron under ground.

Japan hates Australians.

Australians aren't exotic in East Asia, they're more like the annoying next door neighbor. It's best to pretend that you're either British, French, German, or an American cowboy when visiting Japan. Has to be a cowboy though, it's the only attractive stereotype that America has nowadays.

>The few Japanese women I've talked to seemed to lament that Japanese men are often overly girly

That's also connected to their distaste for Asian facial hair.

Asian men might attempt to look less feminine by growing facial hair, but their genetics usually don't allow them to grow anything more than a very pathetic and child-like amount of facial hair, so it has the opposite effect of what they desired.

Seeing a man with weak facial hair is less masculine than a man with no facial hair at all. It's like the hair equivalent of erectile dysfunction.

I doubt they would be able to tell. I used to mistake Australian accents for English accents constantly and English is my native language.

Ainu women look like hideous monsters, but the men definitely look more masculine than Japanese men. Their facial structure is shitty though and they have the noses of jews and the head shape of Mongols.

A beard can do a lot, but it can't work miracles.

I really don't think hair makes a man, no matter how highly you view it on yourself. The Germanic people were also hairy, but they were also barbaric and maybe while being manly, they hardly ever amounted or acted like anything other than animals, and I think that uncouthness is not necessarily tangent to manhood, there are more important aspects.
>>
>>100549854

>Why would classic American ethnocentrism be viewed in other way other than negatively?

Because it's exotic. It's the same reason why the Japanese will immediately become bored with you if you start speaking in Japanese, especially if your Japanese is good. They're talking to a foreigner because they want to hear your accent and hear you talk guns, riding horses through Montana, bandits and outlaws, the wild west, that time when you saw an outlaw shoot a man dead just for looking at him wrong, riding motorcycles across California with a gang of delinquents, and so on.

Walking stereotypes are extremely popular in Japan, but no one wants to talk to the weeaboo gaijin that's trying to "blend in" with Japanese society.

先生はきのう食べた何を覚えていません

, or something similar? Is this just redundance, or am I missing something?

Why do you think these gaijin women like foreigners so much?

It's because we're perceived as barbarians. That uncouth barbarism is fundamentally attractive to women, especially women who live in very polite societies like Japan where their men would never dream of acting like this. This is because it exemplifies the most primal and wild aspects of masculinity.

It's the modern day equivalent of the "going native" fantasy that western women used to have when they thought of the noble savages of the Americas. Those gaijin hunter girls sure as hell aren't attracted to gaijin who are able to accurately mimic the behavior of the Japanese men that they've seen their entire life, they're attracted to gaijin because they're hairy, aggressive, charismatic to the point of being obnoxious, and really big and tall. Essentially the exact opposite of what they have seen their whole lives.

>>100550191
They want to talk to someone that's interesting, same as anyone else. You don't have to be a walking stereotype to be interesting, though. As a foreigner I don't necessarily think trying to "fit in" is the best way to approach things, but on the other hand, the more you stand out, the less you will be taken seriously. I guess it really depends on what type of relationships you are aiming for.

先生はきのう食べた何を覚えていません doesn't make sense, you need to put か after なに. And even if you did that, it would be different. It is the difference between "the teacher doesn't remember what he ate yesterday" and "the teacher doesn't remember something he ate yesterday". The latter presumes the existence of a single thing he ate that he can't remember, while the former is a more general statement.
>>
>>100550688
While I see what you're trying to do with that latter form, things like that are never said.

I can't tell if you're trying to form a relative clause with 何 or shoehorn English syntax into Japanese, but in either case, this isn't done, and embedding questions as in the first case is pretty standard.

Though you could certainly say something like 昨日食べた物を覚えられない I believe, but the meaning is a bit different than what I think you're trying to express.

>Deep and profound relationship between a Japanese girl and a gaijin

Unfortunately, that almost never happens. As westerners, we're nothing more than exotic commodities to them. Good for some months of wild passion with the gaijin, maybe show us off to their friends, soak in the attention of walking around in public with her big blonde gaijin boyfriend that's twice her size, etc. As long as you can maintain the stereotype then she won't lose interest, but as soon as you start acting a bit too Japanese then she's going to kick you to the curb.

An actual serious relationship though? They would probably never even introduce you to their parents. Dating Japanese girls as a foreigner is a lot like when white girls date black guys. She's probably not going to show you off to her parents unless she's angry with them and wants to piss them off.

Japanese dating western foreigners is more taboo than blacks dating whites. It would be a different story if this was the 1930s, but in today's western world, white and black interracial dating isn't really that strange or uncommon even though people still view it with hidden disapproval, as you said.

Japan is different though. At least interracial dating in the west is something that happens between two citizens of the same country. In Japan, you're not only seen as just betraying your race and your family, but you're also seen as betraying your country by rejecting the men of your own nation to be with some foreigner.

It's far more taboo than black/white dating, especially considering the bad blood that still exists from WW2. Japan, Korea, and China are still holding grudges with each other over things that happened hundreds of years ago. It's naive to believe that the Japanese have forgiven us for firebombing every major city in their country, nuking them, and then raping tens of thousands of them during the occupation. There's no worse betrayal than having a woman of your country date a man from the country that crippled and castrated your nation, and Japan is by far one of the most nationalist countries on the planet.

In the eyes of Japan, we're worse than Koreans in every objective way. They won't openly say that, but it's true and the Japanese aren't blind or brainwashed enough to not see this. They're just smart enough to know that it's a bad idea to start talking shit about the nation that forced you to dismantle your military and is currently parking large portions of their naval fleet in your backyard.

>The firebombing of Tokyo, codenamed Operation Meetinghouse, on March 9–10 killed an estimated 100,000 people and destroyed 16 square miles of the city and 267,000 buildings in a single night.
>The United States strategic bombing of Japan took place between 1942 and 1945. In the last seven months of the campaign, a change to firebombing resulted in great destruction of 67 Japanese cities, as many as 500,000 Japanese deaths and some 5 million more made homeless

>The incidence of rape increased after the closure of the brothels, possibly eight-fold; Dower states that "According to one calculation the number of rapes and assaults on Japanese women amounted to around 40 daily while the R.A.A was in operation, and then rose to an average of 330 a day after it was terminated in early 1946."
>330 a day

>Close to midnight on April 4, an estimated 50 GIs arriving in 3 trucks assaulted the Nakamura Hospital in Omori district. Attacking at the blow of a whistle, over the period of one hour they raped more than 40 patients and an estimated 37 female staff. One of the raped women had a two-day old baby that was killed by being thrown on the floor, and also some male patients who tried to protect the women were killed.
>On April 11, between 30 and 60 US soldiers cut phone lines to a housing block in Nagoya city, and simultaneously raped "many girls and women between the ages of 10 and 55 years."

>Germany and France don't hate each other to the extent to which you seem to think the Japanese hate Americans.

Germany would despise all of their neighbors if it wasn't for the Denazification. We had to literally brainwash an entire nation so that they would blame themselves for every thing that happened in the war. Germans are still filled with collective guilt that we hammered into them.

We were forcing women and children to march through fields of rotting corpses and telling them that it was their fault.

>The ideas of collective guilt and collective punishment originated not with the US and British people, but on higher policy levels.[61] Not until late in the war did the U.S. public assign collective responsibility to the German people.[61] The most notable policy document containing elements of collective guilt and collective punishment is JCS 1067 from early 1945.
>Statements made by the British and U.S. governments, both before and immediately after Germany's surrender, indicate that the German nation as a whole was to be held responsible for the actions of the Nazi regime, often using the terms "collective guilt" and "collective responsibility".[63]

>To that end, as the Allies began their post-war denazification efforts, the Psychological Warfare Division (PWD) of Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force undertook a psychological propaganda campaign for the purpose of developing a German sense of collective responsibility.[64]
>The Public Relations and Information Services Control Group of the British Element (CCG/BE) of the Allied Control Commission for Germany began in 1945 to issue directives to officers in charge of producing newspapers and radio broadcasts for the German population to emphasize "the moral responsibility of all Germans for Nazi crimes."[65] Similarly, among U.S. authorities, such a sense of collective guilt was "considered a prerequisite to any long-term education of the German people."[64]

Japanese still has the means to express future intentions and stuff, it just happens that the default verb form can contextually indicate future or present. There is little bearing on cognition.

Some languages have a separate tense to speak about ancient events, but the fact that English doesn't doesn't necessarily mean we have no brain for history.

Human languages divide their means of expression sort of arbitrarily but tend to have ways to express basically the same range of meaning in the end, anyway.

What determines reading difficulty?

For example, you've read through some grammar books, you're familiar enough with stroke order, radicals, and kanji that you can look manually look things up on jisho, but you have a limited vocabulary. What makes a game like Pokemon (with kanji enabled) or Animal Crossing easier to read than a game that's targeted at older audiences?

Sure, the vocabulary will be more complex, but if you're learning a second language then you approach vocabulary in a completely different way than a child would approach vocabulary since you're usually just associating Japanese words with their closest English equivalent rather than learning an entirely new concept.

I don't understand why some games are labeled as having Advanced or Intermediate level reading difficulty and others are beginner. Aren't they all equally difficult if you're going to be mining out every vocabulary word either way?
>>
>>100557093
Greater use of vocabulary(both in quantity and quality), more complex grammatical structures, more word play and subtle use of language, etc.
>>
>>100556549
お前こそ
>>
>>100557093
I don't have a clue what the reading level refers to, so I won't comment. However, what I will say is this. Kanji and vocabulary you can look up, and even if you don't quite get it, you can get close. But if you don't understand the grammatical constructions being used, and you aren't even sure what to look up, that can make it extremely difficult to understand. That's why I focused a lot on grammar first, because I wanted to start reading right away, and just picked up vocabulary along the way. It worked for me but obviously everyone is different.

It's really easy,I just don't get how people don't understand how to use particles, it's just は を も  に が etc. Look it up in Genki and make sure you study the kanji individually.

Japanese grammar is is really easy though.
You just have to understand the concept of particles, and extra syllables that are put at the end of verbs and stuff.

I don't understand the use of "serifu". Rikai just defines it as serif...
Unless it's talking about the other 台詞 defined as speech then it makes sense, (damn you Japs and spontaniously) katakanizing. The sentence then translates to, "Not only can you use accessories to customize your character but you can talk with customizable synthetic sound with lines of speech you input"

It's confusing because it's so simple.

All of those particles can mean so many different things depending on the context.

It would be easier if が was the subject particle and then there were a bunch of other new particles for but, and, however, etc.

I saw some things like

Has anyone else started to dislike leisure time since you started studying?

I feel very uncomfortable and anxious if I start to play a video game or watch a show, especially if it's in English. I've even started practicing the saxophone and learning music theory to fill in the gap of time between when I finish my daily 6 hours of Japanese study and when I go to sleep.

I feel like I'm transforming into an Asian. All I want to do is productive things. Unproductive leisure time makes me feel very agitated.
>>
>>100559100

>>
>>100559100

meth a shit

That degree of focus is counterproductive since you will just tweak out and spend hours cleaning the bathroom and never get anything useful accomplished. Meth only has a practical use if you crush it up, measure it with a milligram scale, and divide it up into about 20mg dosages to create what's essentially nigger-rigged Desoxyn.

Might as well just take dexedrine or adderall if you have to go through all that trouble.

I use to feel that more. I feel it less now, but it's still there. I turned down just about all invitations people gave me to go do something so I could study.

The payoff is seeing your listening skills are improving, picking out more words than you previously could and being able to make enough sense of what's being said to move onto the next scene. It's not like the work of looking up words and kanji goes towards nothing.

It wasn't long ago when some of these lines would just pass by me as a cascade no matter how many times I tried listening.

It came from here http://www.guidetojapanese.org/learn/complete/comparisons

The context is comparisons, so for example:
犬と猫、どちらの方が好き?

Should I just go ahead and still think of it as "with" but the idea is that "dog with cat" is a group of things from which they are asking you to select a preference?
(and then of course translating it into english it would be more appropriate to just use 'or')
or am I not understanding it?
>>
>>100560175

と also means "and", not just "with". I think the jump from "and" to "or" in this context is a bit clearer.
>>
>>100560175
And how was it translated?

More literally, that means something like "about cats and dogs, which do you prefer?" Which in English, is slightly more natural perhaps phrased as "cats or dogs", even though と doesn't mean "or" generally.
>>
>>100560307
It was translated as "Which do (you) like more, dog or cat"

But it makes more sense now if I look at と as "and"
>>
>>100559100
I feel the same way but it's partly because I wanted to make friends and the only way I found to make friends is to do something that will get you noticed. In my particular case it's music (plus being a foreigner speaking Japanese.) So I work on my music and my Japanese, although these threads are starting to drag me down I think. Chatting in here is like an easy fix, I get the feeling of doing something useful (helping people or whatever) without actually accomplishing anything for myself.
