Studying Japanese (15)

How long does it take to learn Japanese? If i study everyday and try to learn everything about the Japanese language for months or even years can i eventually become fluent and speak like a native speaker?

it depends I think.
you can definitely reach the level of a native speaker with enough effort, but I don't know how long that would actually take
really, the hardest part is just memorizing the kanji

Pitch accent is also hard.

>the hardest part is just memorizing the kanji

absolutely not, the hardest thing is simply dealing with the lack of rational grammatical rules
deduction is useless, everything has to be either memorised or magically guessed
but this is general in any non-latin and non-semitic language

Just read more and learn basic vocab, it's really not that hard

The fuck are you on about? Kanji is pretty easy.

You don't have a general japanese learning thread? I feel like it belongs more on /language/ than on /nihongo/

No, you will never be able to sound indistinguishable from a native unless you start learning as a child. You can however become fluent, and be able to do almost anything you want, like reading books or discussing a variety of topics with Japanese people. You'll just have an accent, but who cares?

How do I translate "project" to japanese? Maybe 計画?
I want to make a touhou thread, and call it "touhou計画"

企画 maybe... keep in mind however, if you put "touhou" and "企画" in the same sentence there is danger that you'll be marked by the employees from next time on; it's a double-edged sword.
I can't recommend it to amateurs.

Looks like 計画 is "plan", "list of things I should do to make this done", while 企画 is "series of goods design" or "event/social gathering planning", more specific. You could call touhou games and manga "products", so 企画 maybe applies here...

There are actually a 東方企画 and 東方企画目録 tags on pixiv, and they seems to be a bunch of little "lets gather together and draw a bunch of images about this specific thing, like touhou girls in nurse uniform".

Wouldn't プロジェクト suffice?

This. It's literally stylized as 「東方Project」

It'll take you anywhere from 1 year to 4 years to get to N1. Realistically probably 2.5 or 3 years on average.
I managed to get N1 1.5 years after starting Japanese, I spent about an hour and a half everyday on anki, and exclusively consumed Japanese media during this time. No grammar guides or textbooks or anything, just endlessly learned more words and bashed my head against the language.
You can read and write like a native, and pronounce like one too. You just need to put in a lot of effort.

My 4 year old child is doing pretty well and didn't have any trouble balancing out learning English and Japanese at the same time.
