A thread for Japanese language learners.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Monday, 7 August 2017 23:56 (three years ago) link

Hopefully I didn't screw up the thread title.

Does anyone have a good resource for learning Japanese food words. Decoding menus and ordering food are my number one priority.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Tuesday, 8 August 2017 00:07 (three years ago) link

難しいですね。

lots of kanji + non-standard fonts have made menus v tough in my experience. this is something I'm also curious about...

(⊙_⊙?) (original bgm), Tuesday, 8 August 2017 00:23 (three years ago) link

お休みなさい。

Barkis Garvey (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 8 August 2017 03:19 (three years ago) link

I have found this helpful for negotiating Japanese menus.

droit au butt (Euler), Tuesday, 8 August 2017 03:43 (three years ago) link

That is good.

One thing that has been helpful/entertaining has been watching japanese style originator on Netflix. It's a show where they look at classic japanese things, sort of like one of those 'Ilove the ...' programmes on channel 4. 50 things to put on rice was very good and I now need to go through it at a more stop start pace to learn more of the words for the tastiest things.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Tuesday, 8 August 2017 03:56 (three years ago) link

Just download the Google Translate app and use the camera function.

Badmotorfinger Debate Club (MFB), Tuesday, 8 August 2017 07:01 (three years ago) link

It's good, but it gets tripped up by a lot of japanese script, especially the more handwritten ones.

Works really well on stuff like this:

Less good on stuff like this:

And not at all on stuff like this:

Stuff carved into wooden boards on the far side of a bar, forget about it. Besides, having some fluency around this makes one of the best things about Japan a to more fluid and fun.

I thought about buying one of the Unko Guide Drill books while in Tokyo last month (I even went to Namja Town and saw the associated "exhibition") but I decided I don't really need to learn to write kanji by hand at this point---speaking, listening, and reading come first.

droit au butt (Euler), Friday, 11 August 2017 05:46 (three years ago) link

Honestly, make friends with some bilingual friends... esp. if you're going to restaurants with 150-500 yen menus.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Friday, 11 August 2017 07:24 (three years ago) link

One potential way to get a little more kanji out of Duolingo is to click on an English word, perhaps after you've submitted so it doesn't count against you, to see if it gives you a kanji definition as well as hiragana.

When I Get To The Borad (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 21 August 2017 02:25 (three years ago) link

So if you are asked to define "bird," type とり, hit the green button and then hover over the word "bird" and you will see 鳥

When I Get To The Borad (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 21 August 2017 02:28 (three years ago) link

Or if it's "cat," type ねこ, hit green button, hover over "cat" to see 猫

When I Get To The Borad (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 21 August 2017 02:32 (three years ago) link

Finally, for "dog," type いぬ, hover over "dog" to see 犬.

just on menus, i would recommend checking restaurant websites / gurunavi pages before going into a place that might have a confusing menu. you can translate things at your own pace and look polished and professional when ordering!

XxxxxxxXxxxxxxxxXxxxx (dylannn), Tuesday, 22 August 2017 05:46 (three years ago) link

kanji-heavy menu like that, might be best just to learn to say: "what's this one?" the scribbly menu below it, your basic katakana and some deduction will get you there, you're going to notice everything is ハイ and hey it must be a 酎ハイ menu! you don't need to translate it, just go ahead and order your favorite chuhai and it's going to be okay.

XxxxxxxXxxxxxxxxXxxxx (dylannn), Tuesday, 22 August 2017 05:49 (three years ago) link

ありがとうございます y'all for the menu tips

would those of you using it recommend duolingo for a vocab builder? I've never touched it but could use something to poke me daily on that front.

(⊙_⊙?) (original bgm), Sunday, 3 September 2017 17:19 (three years ago) link

Based on other languages, it's not great as a vocabulary builder once you actually know something. If you are a beginner or rusty intermediate it is great for starting or getting back on track.

When I Get To The Borad (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 3 September 2017 18:23 (three years ago) link

ah, gotcha. thanks! but sounds like it's not quite what I'm looking for then. 私の日本語はすごく下手ですけど、単語をちょっと知っています。

I just know a handful of kanji really, so I was thinking of just memorizing a new one a day and some words that use this new character. (and since memorizing the 'readings' has been pointless for me because the way they're actually implemented is so inconsistent.) this requires some discipline, unfortunately :-|

(⊙_⊙?) (original bgm), Sunday, 3 September 2017 19:42 (three years ago) link

My wife is using Memrise as a vocab builder, she did Japanese at university and is filling in gaps whereas I am using duolingo for the basics.

I've been using Skritter for 漢字 learning. I was using the Chinese version for 汉子 and thought is was good, there are less useful lists in he 日本語 version but it's relatively easy to build your own. The Chinese version had some great food lists for example. What I like about skritter is that you have to draw the 漢字 which works really well for me from a learning perspective.

Finally Japanese is a useful dictionary with a flash card function; however I just use it for favouriting thugs I look up, creating lists for importing into skritter.

will check out memrise, thank you!

I briefly tried out skritter but not really long enough to have anything interesting to say. but I def agree about drawing the 漢字, there's something about writing (and, for me, esp. writing on paper) that helps to smash things into your brain. also, I just find writing pleasant and ~relaxing~.

I really like the midori dictionary app. it also has lets you turn your bookmarks into flash cards, which I sometimes flip thru to kill time on the subway. works offline too, which is good for traveling. tho I suppose google translate does that not too.

jisho is also nice for a the web.

one month passes...

So I finished Duolingo and feel like I have both learned and not really learned anything. Like I said on the other thread it feels like I have beat a game but in doing so I've learnt a bit about the language. I'm doing busuu now which is better as it has more sophisticated exercises, particularly in listening and it has the added bonus of exercises corrected by native speakers; people trade corrections. It does cost though.

What it lacks though is any explanation of grammar so I'm now looking for a good grammar textbook, or textbook that is good at explaining grammar. We have the Japan Times Grammar dictionary which is only useful if you know what you are looking for.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Tuesday, 17 October 2017 07:34 (three years ago) link

haven't really shopped around but the genki textbooks (eri banno) do a p good job with this. and also have funny cartoons.

(⊙_⊙?) (original bgm), Tuesday, 17 October 2017 16:54 (three years ago) link

Now I have two upcoming trips to Japan! So I need to work again in earnest on my language. I will have a look at the Genki textbooks when I am there, or if I can find them here (don't just wanna order blind online).

But have any of you tried https://minato-jf.jp ? They are run by the Japan Foundation, and are free. I have good experience with online courses so maybe I'll do this instead of duolingo, where I share some of Ed's concerns.

droit au butt (Euler), Wednesday, 25 October 2017 08:11 (three years ago) link

I'm enjoying Buusuu a lot - the social element, having your little texts and speeches corrected is really good.

Question - How do you type the small versions of や、よ and う?

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Monday, 30 October 2017 23:29 (three years ago) link

I wrote this on the train this morning and was very pleased with myself:

毎日六時に起きます。お茶を淹れます。奥さんのために朝ごはんを作ります。今日私たちはスクランブルエッグや海苔や唐辛子七味を食べました。七時シヤワーを浴びます。七時半電車で会社に行きます。

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Monday, 30 October 2017 23:33 (three years ago) link

Busuu sent me a limited time half price offer. Wonder if I should take the bait.

Bazooka Jobim (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 6 November 2017 23:38 (three years ago) link

I wish I could get the social elements of Busuu without Busuu. The language learning is built on a framework for a european language, even the dialogues talk about Euros not yen. Very little has been done to localise it and I think it is teaching me bad habits in japanese eg. people correcting my japanese say that 彼 and 彼女 are rarely used in favour of name-さん and その人。I'm worried its not very tuned in to japanese idiom and someone just programmed it with a dictionary. Persevering though because people are very generous with their corrections.

I found another app which solves my grammar guide need for now without paying for Genki - Human japanese which is structured like a classroom course would be with nice explanations of the actual mechanics of japanese. Well written too. $13.99 for both the beginner and intermediate courses as a bundle and no subscription fees which is good in my book. Covering a lot of stuff I have 'learnt' in duolingo and busuu and it's really helping.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Tuesday, 7 November 2017 05:36 (three years ago) link

I️ can’t tell from what you are saying what the app is called, is it Genki?

Bazooka Jobim (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 7 November 2017 05:43 (three years ago) link

Oh sorry, I️ see, Human Japanese, and you bought the bundle.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Tuesday, 7 November 2017 06:19 (three years ago) link

Busuu is now really getting on my wick.

It is using ‘May I...’ and ‘Can I...’ as translations for 。。。していいますか。This may be true but passing the test means not only matching true words but he daft pictures as well. Rapidly falling off this wagon.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Tuesday, 7 November 2017 21:53 (three years ago) link

Dude! I just hitched onto it last night based on your prior recommendation.

Bazooka Jobim (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 7 November 2017 22:01 (three years ago) link

Sorry, the social aspect is really good, though.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Tuesday, 7 November 2017 22:03 (three years ago) link

I complained about Buusuu through the medium of App Store reviews and did get a response saying that they were reviewing their Japanese course.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Thursday, 9 November 2017 03:00 (three years ago) link

I also signed up for their Turkish course, which seems somewhat unidiomatic to me, based on what little I know, but yeah, as a result three people corrected my exercise and seven people almost immediately wanted to be my "friend," Haven't accepted any such requests yet, do you think that will hurt me?

Part Time Punkahwallah (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 11 November 2017 12:36 (three years ago) link

Also, social aspect for corrections and such on busuu is useful. Corrections can come back within seconds.

Part Time Punkahwallah (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 11 November 2017 15:20 (three years ago) link

I'm thinking of getting the Genki book & workbook when I'm Tokyo in January. I find typing Japanese characters really puzzling so far and I'd rather just work by hand for now I think. But I dunno. Really what I want is to be able to speak, listen, and read, in about that order; writing is less important but should come in time as well.

droit au butt (Euler), Saturday, 11 November 2017 15:48 (three years ago) link

Ha, missed almost all the kanji -and one radical! - on the first 4 hour review. Clearly I am burnt, and not in the good sense.

a bit like head in the clouds, above the sky?
I did wanikani for a bit a few years ago and have started again, up to level 4 and am surprised how much I can remember
I just like the way kanji look and the words that happen when you put two or more together, fire + mountain = volcano etc

Really don't know how Ed kept up that pace for a year.

AP Chemirocha (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 7 June 2021 18:08 (one month ago) link

It kind of took over. I had to build it into my day. I wouldn’t recommend it, not least because towards the end of that period all other Japanese study went by the board.

American Fear of Scampos (Ed), Monday, 7 June 2021 21:02 (one month ago) link

I can tell. I am feeling that now at Level 7. I keep promising myself that I am only keeping to the seven day cycle for now to learn how that works but trying to figure out if I should shoot for a ten day cycle or a two week cycle.

AP Chemirocha (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 7 June 2021 21:31 (one month ago) link

Just took advantage of a tip that I could add fonts

AP Chemirocha (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 9 June 2021 18:01 (one month ago) link

And want to remark on the tiny helpful fact that Tsurukame lets you know if you should be typing in an on or kun reading for the kanji.

AP Chemirocha (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 9 June 2021 18:03 (one month ago) link

Drives me crazy when things are very similar in pronunciation like

Are you still doing? I thought maybe you took a break.

You don’t have to do the purple right away. You can start with the blue and pink and do the purple at your leisure. That’s what I do, that’s what somebody else told me they do, I think.

Two Severins Clash (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 20 July 2021 15:27 (one week ago) link

I seem to see a lot of pairs where the e vowel is transitive, to act upon, and the a vowel is intransitive, to be acted upon.

Two Severins Clash (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 20 July 2021 15:31 (one week ago) link

Unless I’ve got that backwards.

Anyway, just found my copy of this book
https://pictures.abebooks.com/isbn/9784872179408-us.jpg
flipping through which demonstrates that the Kanji reading is much improved.

Two Severins Clash (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 23 July 2021 17:24 (five days ago) link

I seem to see a lot of pairs where the e vowel is transitive, to act upon, and the a vowel is intransitive, to be acted upon.

So, for instance
温める
温まる
Which are respectively
To warm something up
To warm oneself up

Two Severins Clash (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 23 July 2021 18:13 (five days ago) link

Just found this

This is an intransitive verb, meaning it happens on its own. The かる ending is a hint, because verbs with かる as okurigana (kana added to the kanji) are usually intransitive.

Two Severins Clash (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 24 July 2021 13:58 (four days ago) link

That’s under 受かる

Two Severins Clash (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 24 July 2021 14:13 (four days ago) link

My main problem with learning Japanese grammar is that I have no idea what English grammar is or how it works. It's like I have to learn a third language to learn the second. Doesn't help that my brain seems to immediately shut off when I read things like "intransitive verb".

( X '____' )/ (zappi), Saturday, 24 July 2021 14:27 (four days ago) link

I wouldn’t worry too much about not knowing English grammar or grammar terms, they map poorly in any case.

I recommend the Cure Dolly videos on YouTube, once you get past the odd 3D avatar and squeaky voice there’s some great teaching on how Japanese works.

Here’s the one on Jidoushi and Tadoushi. Be wary of trying to look for patters is which is which, there are always exceptions.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELk1dqaEmyk

American Fear of Scampos (Ed), Saturday, 24 July 2021 21:39 (four days ago) link

Ed is correct as usual. Japanese grammar is completely unrelated to English grammar, unlike Indo-European languages, in particular close relatives such as Germanic and Romance languages.

Two Severins Clash (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 24 July 2021 21:51 (four days ago) link

So I have all five fonts installed in Tsurukame. Knew that if I long pressed it would show the standard font but just realized I can swipe left and right to iterate through others.

Two Severins Clash (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 25 July 2021 12:15 (three days ago) link

When I went through (most of) the reverse Duolingo tree I actually came across many Japanese terms for English grammar. Of course in the lessons there were multiple ways in Japanese to convey various things that were represented in the English tenses.
