once you get enough vitamins, minerals, essential acids, and fermentable fiber, (extended metaphor for a large amount of well-balanced comprehensible input) further supplementation doesn't help, unless you have a metabolic disorder (learning disability)

it's true that most people have bad diets, but supplements (anki decks) are usually very ineffective, even going put of your way to stuff "health" foods down your throat (mining as anything more than an incidental activity targeted at things you in particular are having issues with) because at the end of the day the only thing that's truly good for you is a nice, filling, complete, healthy, balanced diet (large amounts of compelling comprehensible input of many kinds)

I dunno, with current pace I'll be done in less than a year anyway
On the other hand, I am planning to start my first LN as soon as I'm done turning in my university papers. I think my current bottleneck is grammar and no amount of anki is going to fix that. Grinding LN on top of the current mangas I'm reading is a better plan I think

>> No.20674642

I see words all of the time that I put off putting into anki, and then I bump into them over and over, still forgetting them. SRS is super effective for me. Matt is still doing it and he's at like 20k+. It could be a matter of different strokes for different folks, but for me singling out of the word and focusing on it for a while is a game changer for my aquisitioning. I experience it in english still where I miss spell a word, if I stop and focus on that for a little it goes away. I get what you're saying but targeted study has it's benefits too.

Yea but everything you don't see again within 3 days is lost. You're basically constantly forgetting at that rate. You're going to get really good at the words you see constantly and forget everything else. That's how the brain works. You can set aside about 5 minutes of your life per word and know it forever. Let's just agree to disagree, neither of us will cave in and I need to watch some content.

>> No.20674839

Not him, but once you get the frequent words down, you start memorizing less frequent words naturally. This is how you acquire your native language anyway.

>> No.20674849

>Yea but everything you don't see again within 3 days is lost.
No it's not. You think that because you're believing SRS on a surface level, which is easy to do. The actual fact is that even after only seeing something once, you still have about a 5% retention rate after an entire year. If you seriously don't see a word two times in a year then it's not important anyway. Realistically though, you should be reading so much that you see words often.
Additionally, space between seeing the same information is just one thing out of many. Context, emotional involvement, and some other things I don't recall at this exact moment also go into it. You can very well see a word just one time, see it months later and immediately recall it if the first time you saw it made a strong impression. Flash cards cannot do that.
Flash cards make you feel good because you learn at a very quick rate at the beginning, but the usefulness of cards very quickly plummets below the usefulness of actual immersion in the language, so much so that cards become virtually useless relatively early on. Flash cards are, furthermore, only for learning and not for mastery, while reading and listening is for both at the same time.

Most people who enjoy anki are probably autistic and above average in IQ compared to the internet baseline. I'd say the average redditor is around 105 so I'd put the average anki user at 110-115. But for someone to utilize anki properly is rare and I'd put such individuals at 115-120. I'd aim for 115 if I were you, but seeing as how lowercasers average 125 in DJT I'd say you're in the clear.

There are a list of problems with Core 10k that go beyond the memes posted here. It's frequency based off Asahi Shinbum newspapers from the 1990s. It over uses pronouns. It uses words not taught yet in example sentences. It's not in any sorted or themed order. It randomly uses rare kanji for words. Core 10k's additional 3500 words repeat words just to show kanji variant. Core 10k's words are text to speech.

It was a good deck at its time and still usable, but it has been surpassed by other decks. It sure as fuck ain't perfect.

Personally the Tango decks work great. Fixes a lot of the problems of Core 10k. They work better if you watch Japanese shows everyday and read LNs along with its audio book if it exists.

Hopefully you can only tell when I make long replies.

Just start by doing VNcore deck. Learning words by mining vocab you come across, reading a lot, rewinding video a lot, or doing other decks of vocab, but don't try to go too hard on the singled out kanji at the start imo.

It's not listening practice. It's just reading along with a native that's reading to you. You just have the option to pause and look up words or phrases you don't know. Try it with this site for children's stories. http://www.hukumusume.com/douwa/0_6/index.html

Okay will do thanks anon, I already have a question. So you use つ for combining consonant sounds but I don't really understand it's use in the example びっく =bikku but wouldn't びく=biku ? I don't really see what changes in the pronunciation (unless the つ changes the meaning).

Whith つ there's a glottal stop before pronouncing the next consonant idk what this is about combining consonant sounds

>> No.20680858

it's not a glottal stop, it's a stop on whatever position the consonant itself has

and for fricatives it extends the length of the fricative instead of creating a stop

basically it induces a pause on the state immediately before whatever oral event would cause the vowel to begin sounding out

this is called "gemination"

>literally said natives aren't fluent
i really didn't want to but since you keep dunking on my boy matt i decided to read the article and he never said natives aren't "fluent" in the way we would describe it.

i agree with you that his model is cumbersome, pointless (which funnily enough he said he wanted to avoid in the article), and probably only exists because he feels pressured to continue "innovating" for patreon bucks. but it's obvious you didn't read the article or are just a moron. his asserting that you haven't read the article when you clearly haven't isn't him being an asshole. you jumping to conclusions without reading his article is being an asshole.

So I have my sentence cards setup as: sentence on the front, reading/meaning on the back with TTS. I’ve been reading them aloud and only passing them if I get both the reading and meaning right.

Does this setup seem okay? Seems like the best way to make sure I can both recognize it in the wild when both reading and hearing it, but I don’t know what everyone else does. My biggest worry is fucking up my accent by reading aloud, I’m going to Japan in a few months and it would be nice to actually be able to use some of this shit I spend so much time on, but I also don’t want to sound like a retard forever because I messed up my accent early.

>> No.20682012

you can't permanently fuck up an accent you can just train yourself in the future if you ever want to have a natural sounding accent which is kind of a gay thing to do anyways like why would you want to sound just like a japanese person isnt that weird anyways thats besides the point just do orthodox ajatt and youll be fine eventually sentence cards will get boring and inefficient and you can just learn words isntantly in text or with single word flashcards in massive amounts good luck

the only bad thing you can do in a moderate amount of anki time is waste anki time doing bad decks instead of good ones

on that note i recommend doing vocab-as-spelled alone on the front (maybe with a "hint" of where you mined it from) with all possible answers on the back of the same card
