Time to Consolidate TJP (past time)

I've been studying TJP off and on for the last few years trying to figure out why it declined so far from a thriving community to almost totally dead and I think I have finally come upon the answer. #1 Problem : TJP diversified too much. People go where people are. I is a cycle that is true even in ...

Re: Samurai Novel

There is no vector in the word "different" so a comparison word like "than" doesn't seem to fit. "a “lemon” in the Japanese language projects a very different image as does a lemon in any other language." can be re-written "a "lemon" in the Japanese lang...

Re: Samurai Novel

The 'as' makes them similar, "than' is contrasting. So in this case, "a “lemon” in the Japanese language projects a very different image as does a lemon in any other language." Since you are contrasting a "lemon" in Japanese to "lemon" in another language you use t...

Kodansha's Kanji Learner's Dictionary is now an Android App

Alright, probably the best Kanji Learner's Dictionary is available via android, and iphone/tablet. This review is based on the android version. The interface is excellent and browse, history, and bookmark functions enable this app to lose none of the advantages a book usually has over electronic. $2...

Kanji in Context check

Hey, When I was in Dubai I found nirvana at the Kinokuniya bookstore, I also bought Kanji in Context. So I'm working my way though it. My problem is that I'm not really intermediate but not really a beginner anymore either. There are beginner stuff I don't know and lots of intermediate stuff I alrea...

Re: Learning japanese 1st time Need some tips :)

Japanese for Busy People is a structured course and as such free online resources that are not structured courses are NOT a substitute in any way. Tae Kim's guide is a grammar guide, and might substitute for another grammar guide, but not a textbook. Imabi - for all that it has structure and practic...

Re: Learning japanese 1st time Need some tips :)

If you are not satisfied with your learning experience with your current tutor, it never hurts to look elsewhere. Just don't become obsessed with looking for the perfect tutor. Some people are simply not good teachers no matter how skilled they might be otherwise. Have you discussed with your teache...

Re: Learning japanese 1st time Need some tips :)

So these are private lessons or in college, or just some dude online? Generally it is best to stick with one course not look for another once you've started on one, because you'll just be repeating a lot of material and wasting time. However, if you just started and can determine the books well, wha...

Re: Good book to start learning japanese?

I wouldn't recommend Rosetta Stone to a complete beginner, it'll throw you straight into te-imasu forms and other grammar points you just wont understand from it. It makes a good aide though, wouldn't use it as a pure source of learning. Now you're just focusing on priorities. Like I said above, ea...

Re: Good book to start learning japanese?

I got a hold of a copy at the local Navy Exchange. It's not perfect. Sometimes the pictures are ambiguous, and some times the game is ambiguous (a translation game appears to be a response game), so I miss the odd question here or there purely from misinterpreting the game. But it has a roumaji mode...

Re: Good book to start learning japanese?

I do not recommend learning a language with a number of disconnected works. What you need is a Primary tool, and then supplements. Your primary language book should really cover everything. Grammar, writing, sample sentences, vocabulary, etc.. So you need to be looking at multimedia from the start. ...

Re: Page Activity

I dug around a little and I think Google might be part of the problem. I tested a few search terms to see how things were going. The quoted words are the unquoted search terms used and the rank how far I had to scroll or page through. I am not including the paid placement ------- "Japanese Ques...
