Learning Japanese via anime intros by Rebecca Cublingdock - Fri, 18 Apr 2014 17:48:40 EST ID:CGb0mvw5 No.11259 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I'm trying to learn Japanese via anime intro and outro songs. I've started with Welcome to the NHK's intro which I've memorized by heart and can recite on demand.

http://www.animelyrics.com/anime/nhkyoukoso/nhkpazuru.htm

Only one problem: I don't know all the tenses of each word, so while I know what each paragraph means, I don't really know EXACTLY what each word means or implies in the context.

Do I need to google translate each individual word (which can have multiple meanings) or is there a simpler way?

No offense but this is sorta a retarded way of learning it.

Also no offense but mind that learning Japanese for anime is kinda like English for star trek; it's not really a respectable path.



But I guess if I were you learn the grammar first. Wikipedia is a good intro, go out from there. Also if you can't read kana learn now.

That won't give you much, but you'll be able to parse out simple noun-phrases; no is like a genitive, wo (o) is like the accusative, ha (wa) is the topic, ga the nominative, ni usually marks it as something like a dative (eg watashi-ga Nihon-ni iku ~= I go to Japan [don't trust this translation it's been years and years]).

That will give you some nouns, which for the most part are indeclinable (don't change their form like he/him/his/they/them/their does). Watashi for example always is the speaker, and depending on if it's watashi ga or watashi (w)o you'll get I or me. Note Japanese usually has different pronouns for different situations with the same lexical meaning; so there's a boyish me, a womanly me, a respectful me, the kind of me you use when you wanna say "fuck off", a me you use if you're a fictional old man, some you only find in stuff pretending to be Chinese...

Learning the grammar should teach you some basic verbs like to go to have to be; most things get turned into verbs using the basic verbs but it's far from exhaustive. And oh my god everything in the language is a verb. But that should teach you how to recognize some roots then just use a dictionary. Verify in more than one for accuracy. Japanese only has a handful of truly irregular verbs (easy) but there's a fuck ton of inflections to learn for every conceivable mood and pretension. And then there's like the million other verbs you'll get, making it more difficult if you don't have a systematic mind; at least, they like to do the inflected equivalent of coverbs and have a fuck ton of auxiliaries that make the rest of everything easier to learn if harder early on...

Note - pretty much all adjectives are like verbs and change shape thusly; this is a common thing throughout the world but rare in European things. Words always go …

I've been tutoring an 11-year old boy in French for a while. He just started French in school, so he has very little vocabulary; the focus of the tutoring sessions lies on pronuncation and reading.

I won't beat around the bush — his pronuncation is terrible and he hates any pronunciation exercises I've tried to do with him. Partly, I think he feels a little self-conscious (even though I never flat out say "this is wrong" or anything)... I also kind of feel that it's early to be tutoring him and that he'll naturally get the hang of it after a year or so.

My question is: can anyone share some experiences/ideas on tutoring relatively young children? I'm used to tutoring 15-18 year olds, so this 11-year old boy is a little new for me and it seems like I'm using the wrong approach. Thanks!

songs are good for learning to pronounce things without suffering. make a cd and do a different song in class every time, then give him a copy that he can listen to with is parents in the car, it can range from pop and rock songs to songs that are specifically designed for learners, once you figure out what works you can do more of that.

how to make 11 year olds like you? Don't care about whether or not they like you, your job is to teach them.

how to make the classes fun? It depends on the student, if they feel like they really don't want to be there, if there french class in school is awful and they expect the same from you.. well sometimes it's not you, it's them.

Play memory games with French word flash cards,

e.g. you have a picture of a postman on one and the word postman on the other, a picture of a robot on one and the french word for robot on the other. if he turns over the word he has to pronounce it before trying to find the picture. if he turns over the picture he has to remember the word.
Never make kids think for very long, they stop thinking and start waiting for the ordeal to be over, if he doesn't get it in about 5 seconds just tell him.

Play games, jeeze. There are hundreds of games, especially for pronunciation and reading. Maybe he is not going to love it immediately but

Thank you very much! That's some great insight.

I did have a card game with numbers in different colors. With the roll of a die it would be decided if he had to say the color, the number, or add up two numbers (seems a bit difficult, but he loves math and actually quite liked this). That worked out great, but after a while colors and numbers became boring, of course.

I like the idea of memory games and the general advice to introduce more game-like elements; thank you for that. Also that kids don't like to think for long, that never really crossed my mind, and I'm more the type to just give him some time, so I'll try a different approach and see how it goes.

Him liking me isn't really my goal but of course it makes things a little easier and constructive if he doesn't downright hate me, which he doesn't. I'm just having some trouble adapting to an 11-year old as I do have a lot of experience in dealing with older students, so I generally have a lot of material to work with and I don't have to make things "super fun."

Thanks for your time, >>11240!

if you have flash cards at all you can do games. there are a few different versions of memory, where you can turn all the cards over one by one and he has to remember the original order.. or i used to play a guessing game where i put the cards in the shape of a cross where you could see the middle, say it was "chicken" and he'd have to guess "the cat is ON THE LEFT of the chicken" and of course he almost always got it wrong, but it was a guessing game, so it means that getting it wrong doesn't mean you are dumb, and when you get it right a few times in a row you feel awesome.

Or you show the person all the flashcards, then you hide them, take away one, they have to guess which is missing...
Do remember to say all the basic instructions and vocab that you need to keep repeating for the game in French... like "what is it?" "which is it?" you'll notice every game has just a few necessary phrases to move it along


Any time you have to learn lists you can do it by throwing or kicking a ball.

E.g.

First *kick the ball to him* he has to say
second *kicks the ball to you* you have to say
third

Not so much as torn between these two, as I want to learn both. But which of the two should I take up first? I'm more interested in German culture, but my girlfriend's Puerto Rican and her father's command of English isn't all that conversational. Resources, etc. for both?

As a German speaking former student living in the middle of fucking California, go with Spanish. Come back to German when you have time, but give your attention first to Spanish.

Get teachers and people eager to speak with you, ideally who already know the language.

My approach if I were doing things all alone, which isn't really something I'd recommend, is to generalize the grammar (get used to the word order mostly) and phonotactics and orthography then start with maybe Swadesh (stable common words) and use-frequency lists and build out from there, generally by basic stuff like household stuff and then topics you enjoy through music, tv, books, and so on.

Keep eyes out on how they might use a phrase differently; like in German abstract nouns get the article even though otherwise they're used pretty much the same as in English (the car, das Auto; but love, die Liebe). Or other things like in German "auf" means on (strictly like on top of; on the table, auf dem Tisch) but gets used at times we might use in (in German, but auf Deutsch) or up (it's cognate to up, actually; give up, aufgeben (in a sentence: er gab sich selbst auf, he gave himself up). Be wary of false friends, bekommen means get or receive in German, I think embarazad@ means pregnant in Spanish with the real word for embarrassed being like avergonzad@.


So, like, I don't know really anything at all about the Spanish language. About German I had a really wonderful professor and also picked up a lot through music, but 99% was my teacher. Material wise, beyond teachers, I don't know. I would just recommend wiktionary and wikipedia for now. I think there's also a wikibook on learning Spanish. There's one on Manchu, so there's probably one on Spanish.

My native language in English and my second language is Spanish, which I speak quite well (mostly due to me living in Central America for nearly 2 years).


Obviously, I will always be perfecting my Spanish, but I would like to move onto studying a new one in my spare time.

I have chosen either French or Portuguese. French only because it is the second official language of Canada (where I am from) and if I ever wanted to take position in Latin America with the Canadian government, embassy or consulate worker as an example, French would almost be necessary.


As far as Portuguese, I have more interest in the Language and believe it would have more business practice as I do have some small businesses here In Central America and have been wanting to go explore Brazil for opportunities. As well, there are a number of interesting places in Africa that, according to Wikipedia, speak Portuguese, and I have always wanted to live a year or so in Africa.


Another part of it is choosing the one that will be "easier" coming from Spanish, I know that both are Romantic languages with a similar grammatical structure, but still not sure.

Lastly, trying to choose which of the two, from a traveling/meeting people perspective, would be more useful. I understand that French is more widely spoken across Europe than portuguese, but ever other person from Wester Europe I meet speaks English anyways.

But Polish has the same bad head cold vowels? ą ę

Also languages with palatals sounds like toothless grandpa languages (Irish, Polish, Hungarian) and languages with retroflexes sound like stupid pirates (Polish, Chinese, English)

Not that I don't love them... I think German is beautiful but everyone says it's angry. But to me, Armenian is angry, or Türkish which always sounds like it doesn't give 10 shits and is mocking you ("öbeğine bağlı bir dildir" eRbaygheeney barl ew (not i-oo but the single sound you make when you're revolused in disgust ihh) beer dildo). German is beautiful except when it's supremely dümb wüth thösö stüpüd ümläüt vöwöls (say all that with duckface) but doesn't have the disgusted sounds that go with it, just clarity, making them sound like they suddenly broke more than mocking.

I think it's a Romance language thing. French used to sound like Portuguese, which sounds more like Spanish. Then again, it might be because it was the only "respected" language the English dealt with for thousands of years and then that thing with napoleon which bewitched Russia.

Brasilian Portugues specifically, given your location. After 5 years of formal Mexican Spanish I had between a 60-80% comprehension rate for port in general. That's with no actually learning taking place.

They speak French in afrika but afrika is disgusting. I think you'd spend most of your time guessing who actually speaks french and speaks it properly while you try to find medicine or a doctor. Or clean water.

> Portugal is "Port of the Gauls" after all
FYI that's not the right etymology. It comes from the latin Portus Cale. I was taught that the element 'cale' was cognate to the word for 'warm' but apparently that's not right either. There are a couple of theories it seems but none that link it to 'gaul'

> The etymology of the name Cale is mysterious, as is the identity of the town's founders. Some historians[who?] have argued that Greeks were the first to settle Cale and that the name derives from the Greek word kallis (καλλις), 'beautiful', referring to the beauty of the Douro valley. Still others[who?] have claimed that Cale originated in the language of the Gallaeci people indigenous to the surrounding region (see below). Others argue that Cale[2] is a Celtic name like many others found in the region. The word cale or cala, would mean 'port', an 'inlet' or 'harbour,' and implied the existence of an older Celtic harbour.[3] Others argue it is the stem of Gallaecia. Another theory claims it derives from Caladunum.[4]

I'm aware of it, the demonym's by far the most most parsimonious explanation though.

Remember the letter G came late, like near the end of the Republic late. Gale is as valid a reading as Cale. Additionally


When saying Gaul I don't actually mean the Gaulish people in sensu strictu. G - A - L is a common demonym across the Celtic peoples like Theodish is for Germanic peoples or Slav is for the Slavs: GAuL; GAeLic, GoideLic, GouezeL, GALicia, GALenica, GALatia, GwyddeL, and Roman names of the CAL and CEL form (eg CELtic); this term derives via regular sound change from an earlier *weidelo, which incidentally left val- and gual- roots all over Normandy. Which ironically was borrowed into Germanic as *walhaz meaning foreigner; ironically because the Saxons would give the name to Cymru - Wales, unaware that it likely was the original word for all Celts for themselves.



By the way, reread your paragraph:
>Still others[who?] have claimed that Cale originated in the language of the Gallaeci people indigenous to the surrounding region (see below).
>Others argue that Cale[2] is a Celtic name like many others found in the region.
>Others argue it is the stem of Gallaecia.

It should be known etymologizing Celtic people names is greatly troubled by how much Celtic Europe is ashamed to be Celtic. I'll acknowledge other theories, I just find the demonym etymology more likely by a longshot.

I had a moment when I was in Europe during January where I got locked out from communication on a plane. Native American English speaker, had been speaking german for maybe 4 days, bit of french for one and picking up scraps of the semetic and Indo families from my date and from cab drivers all week.

Hello everyone,

I have a question about how to use adjectives predicatively in Swahili. Predicative means as a predication, so that it translates as the English "to be blue/big/broken/hopeful".

A blue whale would be "nyangumi buluu" (that is, a blue whale, not green or pink.) How would you say "the whale is blue?"

"Our room" would be "chumba chetu". How can you say "this room is ours"? Would it be "chumba chiki ni chetu"?

I don't speak the language, but from what others have told me, it's kinda like in English. So if I have it right, use the ni- or si- (not) copulas between the phrases depending on what's appropriate. I read something about a w- copula too, but I think it's just turning adjectives into nouns with an abstract-noun prefix.

Another thing I've seen is no copula, but a reduplicated adjective (labeled "adjective phrase". No affix. So if I got this right, "The sky is red" would be

Mbingu nyekundu nyekundu.

Unless I'm positively retarded, big possibility.
