What is her first language? I learned english by playing online FPS and watching South Park. But as a german speaker, english is basically a free language. I never took any lessons at school and didn't read any books about it.
Just tell her to start watching and installing everything in english and she should be fluent in about 3 months.
If she is speaking some weird language or even an asian one, she should prepare to study anki decks for many years to come.
Oh and completely forget about grammar. English doesn't really have any grammar except for some tenses, nobody really knows how to use anyways.

It's certainly harder for people from a latin based language. But it's still pretty easy. I think learning some vocab through anki could really help her. I presume learning about 100 new words a day should be pretty easy with english. I'm sure she already knows tons of english words, but maybe has a hard time recognizing them in the wild. Maybe she could even start by reading something simple. Like comics, or harry potter.

You might as well just try to figure everything out by pure induction. If you wanna learn about plants, you should go and look at stuff in your backyard, compare leaves, stems, instead of reading books on botany. Likewise, you shouldn't learn about mathematics, logic, or physics, since everything can either be observed or deduced from a priori principles. As a matter of fact, considering that there's only so many possible letter combinations that can be used for names, you shouldn't ask people for their names, and instead attempt to guess.
Or you could save yourself quite a bit of time by relying on what others have already written down, just filling in smaller gaps in your knowledge by deduction.

Japanese grammar is not too difficult to read on, but I admit that the reason why I decided not to study Greek, Latin, or Sanskrit was just because I felt too lazy to memorise seemingly long lists of grammatical categorisations.

Most people learn the language spoken by people around them. Not as many people learn languages spoken by people on the other side of the world.

It's been so long since I learned basic Japanese grammar (15+ years ago, from a native speaker) that I honestly have no opinion on how to start out, I just thought it was silly to say 'you don't need a grammar text to learn a language' is equivalent to saying 'linguistics is useless'

>> No.21032756

takes natives a good couple years to learn to understand their language properly even at a very basic level with tons of words and patterns missing, you can cut that down a lot by priming your brain to learn things by exposing it to simplified portraits of them in advance. that's what reading through tk like a book is for. it hardly teaches you anything, it just makes it easier for the grammar you see from it to become i+1, so you learn it more readily when reading and listening. having a mental foothold on the language, even if it's completely wrong, reduces the affective filter and thus is also an aspect of this that makes it easier to learn.

You went full retard

Genki is the best way to start learning Japanese. After genki use textbooks until you are on an advanced level.

And here is the thing, AFTER you are on an advanced level, reading native content is the best way to improve even further. But if you don't reach the advanced level with textbooks, you will either quit Japanese or being stuck like Matt in the intermediate Japanese.

There's two modes of translation, the commercial, functional translation and the translation for a more limited, informed audience. The wider the intended audience, the more you're going to eliminate references and peculiarities specific to the medium and it's surrounding culture, to enable foreigners not familiar with the culture to enjoy the medium without doing extensive background research. That involves, replacing puns or jokes that are specific to a language with something else that produce a similar response, even if it's not the exact same pun or joke.

So, I'd say he's right. There is a case to be made for a more literal approach though if you're translating for a limited audience that is more familiar with the medium. But even then, shit like puns are hard to deal with. Do you want the audience to know exactly what the original said, or do you want to evoke the same reaction that the original evoked? Sometimes these two things are impossible to reconcile and it's a matter of your personal translation philosophy.

1) make sure you're using a utf-8 locale instead of some legacy region-specific one
2) make sure noto han sans and noto han serif are installed; optionally install other fonts like hanazono mincho, ipa ex gothic/mincho, etc
3) install mozc for whatever input method manager you're using (this typically ibus or uim, which one you want depends on your particular desktop environment; don't use fcitx, it's buggy and designed around its built-in chinese IME)
3.5) optionally change the input for "nn" to map to んn or w/e instead of ん so that words like "onna" come out as "おんな" instead of "おんあ" (if you need to type a lone ん, type n')

if you use a baby-friendly distro then 1 and 2 are done by default, all you have to do is install mozc, which is equivalent to installing google ime on windows

recently i watched an episode of a 萌え冒険者 anime and went through it again listening for the japanese words i didn’t catch and typing them out in another window. felt like pretty good listening practice, since i had to make out the words by ear and then check the definitions (rikaisama) of the ones i farmed to make sure they made sense with the context and 文法

Uh the J-CAT's listening parts are definitely not "anime-style super-clear voice actor talk", they do indeed speak clearly rather than slurring everything together but they're nowhere near as clear as voice actors and they intentionally mix loud background noise into the dialogue for the more difficult questions.

advice that could help you

"For yourself and SWIM, sometimes its good to switch out the breath and switch in a loving kindness practice. Then use the loving kindness practice as a attentional stability thing. I highly highly recommend this to someone with OCD like symptoms or Schizophrenia symptoms.

Feeling bad? "May all being be happy."
Feeling good? "May all being be happy".
Feeling tired? "May all being be happy"
Feeling distracted? "May all being be happy"
Feeling frustrated? "May all being be happy"
Feeling whatever? "May all being be happy"
Hearing voice saying whatever? "May all beings be happy"
Having an urge to do something else? "May all beings be happy"

Important note. All beings includes yourself. If happiness or that specific phrase doesn't feel right, then pick a phrase/phrases that feel right. I personally find "May all beings know peace", and "May all beings know love" to be positive phrases that feel right to me.

I mostly agree with what you're saying. I was only pointing out that if you actually want to describe what native level means, it means perfect accent and near perfect grammar, cause those are the only two things all native speakers will have in common. vocabulary, reading comprehension, ability to express oneself etc. all vary greatly between natives. So in a way I think the term "native level" is stupid.

>pitch accent and stuff doesn't matter.

Because that doesn't actually improve your listening ability.

listening has two requirements. hear the sounds being pronounced, and recognize the meaning of those sounds. even if you use an engsub as a hint for the latter, you still have to pick up the right spoken sounds for the former, and then use your prior knowledge of japanese (which is never not a good thing) to decide what word would fit best. japanese subs remove all such effort. eng subs don't.

>even if you use an engsub as a hint for the latter, you still have to pick up the right spoken sounds for the former, and then use your prior knowledge of japanese (which is never not a good thing) to decide what word would fit best
I agree, but the contention lies in whether or not that's the best way to go about it, and I contend it's not. It still remains that if you use English subs to make inferences to what was said in Japanese, you didn't understand it through listening. You heard it, maybe understood the sounds properly, but used the English subtitles on the screen to deduce what the word in Japanese means. You have to hear what was said anyways, so you'd be better off just looking up the word using what you heard in Japanese and listening to that section again.

prove that we can process subtitles and audio simultaneously, prove that reading improves listening, prove that not understanding something audibly improves listening. お願いする

hm i don't recommend ignoring it. i just don't recommend trying to *perfect* it. if you do some decent shadowing practice and record yourself a couple times, you can get pretty darn good accent-wise. not "always perfect pitch-accent" good, but good enough not to sound like a バカ外人. i think everyone should aim for that.

shadowing will improve your accent substantially, thats 当たり前. "pitch accent" as in the 細かい differences in certain word pronunciations or whatever, like i said doesn't really matter. unless your goal is 'trick people into thinking you're japanese or raised in japan' rather than just 'communicate fluently'.

>sure pitch accent doesn't matter in terms of being understood. If you had the ability to hear how awful it sounds when someone's pitch accent is all over the place you probably wouldn't say that.
even if you weren't here to attest to this, the fact that pitch accent matters just like pronunciation matters should be self-evident. what's their incentive to deny it?

there literally is
when you have people going "ummm actually the acquisition vector of the english subs is only 60% efficiency by my calculations which means the optimal route is to actually consume the anime raw..." none of that shit has anything behind it, its literally just throwing your turds at the wall. it could be true it could be the wrongest thing anyone has ever said so you might as well just shut your stupid fucking mouth and move on

no lol. pronunciation matters like 10x more. pitch accent matters to a small enough degree to consider it negligible past a certain point that anyone can get to via a few hours of shadowing. for japanese at least. we're not talking chinese here or whatever "pitch accent language" that other guy was drawing from.

I learned English by reading translated manga that weren't available in my language. It took my a while to read a single page in the beginning because of all the words I had to look up but since I was a huge weeb it didn't bother me at all. After a few months I rarely found new words (once in a volume maybe) then I switched to English subbed anime, which helped improve my reading speed a lot.

Is it naive to expect this exact approach to work in Japanese and why?

Taking into consideration the Japanese writing system, it'll probably be considerably harder, but outside of that the process is the exact same. It'll probably just be more time-consuming. Though some of that might be mitigated since you've already (seemingly) gotten fluent in an L2, so you, at least to some degree, knows what works for you in learning a language, at least with reading.

It's probably simply because kanji in general have multiple readings. But that said, not all readings are created equal. For example, I ran into a similar situation with the word 左側. I looked it up in jisho and saw that it had another reading aside from ひだりがわ - that reading being さそく. I asked some Japanese people if they would understand me if I read it as さそく instead of ひだりがわ, and they said most people probably wouldn't understand.
