whats a good japanese dictionary app you can recommend for android users?
the one i put on my tablet is labeled “JED” but to be honest I use my iPhone’s imiwa app more (which is sadly not on android last i checked :<) since I’m more used to it. I haven’t really tried many android J<->E dictionary apps, so maybe someone else can make some suggestions?
i want to build something with the new furious fists’ lucario EX/M lucario EX and/or that korrina? i really wanna try to get back into tcg and i just really have a fondness for the recent expansion though i’m not sure what to work with it or if it’d even be viable.
but the worst part about it is that there’s so little people i know that ptcg so ;w;
(btw yea i have a tcgo account that maybe i’ll share at some point but i rarely use it and feel the UI is super laggy so I never make decks on it (not that i have much besides the starter deck cards anyway))
Solitiba (which is a game by Game Freak) is going to smartphones! iOS and Android, free to play. Japanese iTunes store and Google Play only most likely, but since it will be a free smartphone game, it’ll much easier to import than the 3ds version! It’s a quirky solitaire game, really cute style, definitely take a look guys! :3
Hi! I've been trying to learn Japanese for a while now and was wondering if you had any tips for Japanese learners? Thank you very much in advance!
dhsdsdj tbh i dont really know if i’m the best person to ask about this but uhhmm i guess i can try to give some tips
learn kana first, drop romaji as fast as you can. like for serious, take like a week or two to learn both hiragana and katakana, and then stop using romaji in your studies. while i never experienced it, it can become a crutch for some people and you totally dont want that. as a suggestion for how to learn/practice kana: the way i found best was to write the character repeatedly and say the syllable to myself as i wrote it.
use the language as often as you can. obviously you’ll have to learn some grammar before you can do this, but generally you want to read, listen, and write on a semi-regular basis (i admit to not always doing this myself whoops) in the language you’re learning. this doesn’t just go for japanese either. playing a video game in the language you’re learning, or reading a chapter of a book/manga in the language, watching a show without subtitles, stuff like that can be helpful. keeping a diary in the language you’re learning can be good too. if you don’t want to keep a physical diary and also are interested in having people correct your text, you can always use lang-8! edit: this is a little late for those reblogs but speaking is obviously something you should do too! but with japanese in specific, it can be hard to find someone to speak the language with unless you’re in japan. if you can find someone to skype with, or have a long-distance call with (or maybe non-long distance if you’re lucky), i’d definitely suggest doing so even if it can be hard to do sometimes. so really, speak it aloud when you can, but at the same time with japanese you might not really get the chance unless you actually go to japan (which is definitely another thing to do but it’s expensive).
don’t put off learning kanji. i know they’re scary looking and hard to write, but they can actually be a big life saver sometimes. like for example 水道, is 水 (water) and 道 (path) so you can tell from that it’s something to do with a path for water (it’s the word for water supply/service). this isn’t always the case but it happens more often than you’d think.
