If I study every day, how long will it take to read fluently? (28)

1 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2009-02-12 01:05 ID:XHzR+xjd

It seems like a tough language, but I'm willing to put the time in if it's not an entirely futile effort.

I'm not that interested in speaking it, unless that's absolutely required to understand subtleties in the writing. I mainly want to read things by amazing people like Shigesato Itoi, and browse 2ch and other stuff like that I guess.

By your estimation, if I take maybe an hour or two every day out of my schedule to study Japanese, how long do you think it will take before I'll be able to read pretty much anything I want?

I'm just looking for an average here, so I know it's not a hopeless attempt.

19 名前: sendras89 : 2010-01-03 22:12 ID:a6lRxkGn

First learn Japanese's alphabet, kana (hiragana and katakana). They should only take a week to learn. Practice reading articles until you can read them quickly.

Next learn kanji. The government has a list of characters you need to know for everyday use. You can find it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_j%C5%8Dy%C5%8D_kanji. Make sure you organize the table by grade level, starting with grade 1. I went by grade, first learning the English meaning and on'yomi (how the character is pronounced when with other characters), then going back and learning the kun'yomi (how they're pronounced alone). When you finish grade 6 you will be amazed how much you can read.

After that you can start reading simple stuff on the internet. There's a good Firefox plugin called Rikaichan which will let you mouse over a kanji to get its meaning and pronunciation: http://www.polarcloud.com/rikaichan/

When you've finished the secondary school kanji ("S" on the chart) you can start reading offline stuff in books. I recommend you buy a Canon Wordtank so you can quickly look up new words. Read something fun like a translation of your favorite author. Good luck!

23 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2016-05-07 05:21 ID:jB8Wp4NQ

I've never heard anything good about rosetta stone.
In fact, particualrly, ive heard alot of bad stuff about it.
The one thing ive heard is that its good for training your listening skills, but a better audio course probably would be too, anyway.

I mean, I haven't tried to learn Japanese. At least not yet. I have been having difficulty learning Spanish. That's supposed to be an easy language for an english speaker to learn. So I suppose japanese, a language that's supposedly hard to learn, would be extremely difficult. For someone like me anyway. Although that just might be due to trying to self learn. I was taught french and I remember that being much easier. I should try going to another class sometime, then I could probably recomerec the same for some Japanese class.

19 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2018-07-27 16:56 ID:WkDPDZWA

This. They're nationalists for a country they've never been to and know nothing about. They seriously think that anime, vns, lns, and anime-y games like 2hu are indicative of mainstream Japanese culture when they fucking aren't.

Japanese Online Idioms (410)

1 名前: Anonymous 2004-11-26 05:15 ID:Heaven [Del]

I would like to know what some of the Japanese phrases mean that are mostly used online, on boards like 2ch, e.g.

There is DQN and (ry, for instance.

What do those mean? Are there other ones I need to know to understand an average online conversation?

Please enlighten me!

This thread refers to another thread, by the way:

I want to make a gift to my friend that recently started to watch anime. I don't have an idea where I can find someone from Japan who can help me. I want to make a mug with print of... this girl that does "Niko Niko Ni", dunno who it is... and write "Bars(his ingame nickname) is gay, anime is evil" in Japanese. That's what I got with online-translator: "スノーヒョウ同性愛者であります。 アニメは悪です。" I hope someone will help.

625 名前: I think it is supposed to be my name : 2018-05-11 07:25 ID:fWD7m9pp

>>624 btw I've seen the redirection to 2ch's english-to-Japanese translation thread, but haven't found the thread itself so I hope this one still works.

626 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2018-09-05 03:22 ID:UJsqmIDc

> スノーヒョウ同性愛者であります。 アニメは悪です

You're not around to read this anymore but this roughly means "A snowleopardhomosexual object is present. Anime is evil."

The lack of spaces is to convey that スノーヒョウ同性愛者 is ungrammatical. "Object is present" is to convey that あります is not used for living beings.

I hope you made this mug and showed it off to Japanese people. They will be amused. Or maybe horrified.

the first youtube video was released 02/16/2005, but what nobody knew was that it was a murder that happened in 1979.
-the amateur video shows moments before the murder of 3 girls by the man who was singing along with them.
