That was perhaps the most informative, well written post I have read in a long time. I definitely give you 5 stars. Thanks!!
I unfortunately have this sleep pattern. Not by choice, but because my job demands it. I DO NOT recommend it.September 21, 2012 at 1:18 pm in reply to: How Far Will TextFugu Take Me (In Its Current State)? #35585
Textfugu seems more about teaching you how to learn Japanese on your own rather than spoon feeding you the entire language. It feels like Koichi is holding the bicycle and eventually you have to decide how good you want to be in this sport. The thing I will say is it is difficult and doesn’t seem to get easier. However, following a set daily routine of learning does keep me moving forward. What keeps me motivated is knowing that my biggest problem is vocabulary. The more vocabulary you know the more rewarding Japanese is. Despite all the grammar rules Japanese sentences seem to be often reduced to a single word…げんき？ たべる？ So I am using Textfugu as a foundation school not necessarily as a one stop shop for Japanese.
Just looking at cards is very boring to me. Using my iphone/ipad, I use google images and find photos that express the adjective. I save these in an album and call out the Japanese word during the slideshow.August 20, 2012 at 5:31 am in reply to: Need advice on picking a future job in japan Help! #34662
I also agree with what Cassandra told you. You are 15 now. So you have about 5 years to get your life/career in order. If working/living in Japan is really what you want, then I would recommend you get the best education possible. My advice would be to decide what you are interested in. Become an expert at what you like. Get the highest level of education in your chosen field that you can. Continue studying Japanese all through university. Get a job in your home country at a company with branches in Japan. Find a way to get transferred into the Japanese side. You might also be worth considering studying at Japanese university as a foreign student. Best of luck to you.
I am watching Mr Brain and Kuroko no Basket. I have been a SMAP fan for several years. So I try to watch all of Kimutaku’s programs. Kuroko no Basket is a sports anime. Those are my favourite types of anime. Also, I can recommend Eyeshield 21 and Prince of Tennis.
Hi, I am new to Textfugu. I really am disappointed with how much the course relies on Anki. Koichi spends so much time explaining how to get Anki to work during the lessons. It’s obviously not a user friendly program. I am an iPad user and rarely have access to my desktop because I am away from home a lot. So basically I have to skip over all of the Anki downloads. I realise there is a ¥2200 app, but I refuse to pay for the Anki app. Why should It cost so much more than other apps? Boo :-(
