I'm starting learning Japanese on a daily basis and I wanted to make a thread where people would share their tips.

Also a place for small hacks of the language.




I read the DJT guide. I am doing some Anki each day since 6 months and I try to read something when I have time.

Found that I am not good memorizing things. I could read a word several times in a text and still not remember it. Only by seeing it over several days in Anki I could really remember it.

I also found useful to know the radicals and the kanji, not only the vocabulary.


Don't get discouraged if you find it hard to remember words everyone has trouble remembering these Chinese island moon runes even the Japanese to need to force it into their minds from a young age. Also learning kanji was the best choice I made and really propelled my abilities to the next level. Also my main tip would be to try to read as much a you can. Read, read and read some more the only way that all this mumbo jumbo sets in is in practice. Its a long road but I know we can get to the top of MT Fuji together.

I've been meaning to do a language thread, but I thought it would be more interesting if it includes comfy-posting about different parts of the world.
Feel free to share the -best- resources to learn your language or others that you may be aware of!

I know its hard to not get political but please try to keep it civil, or at most do some friendly banter.

I'm from a country that used to belong to the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, my main language is Español, and some tidbits of guaraní/portuguese.

However I'm interested in japanese[0] and russian, and of course, I would like to improve my english.

Ok, nice. I have been debating on signing up for the Irish Gaelic duolingo because I wasn't sure if it was proper Irish Gaelic or a mix of the three dialects like their Spanish course is. But if they're all mutually intelligible, might as well take the plunge.

Thank you


Duolinguo is fine for vocab but I noticed that the Irish sentences are totally off. I remember "Learning Irish" by Mícheál Ó Siadhail and "Buntús Cainte" being really good (both come with CDs for pronounciation), if you can get your hands on them.

There was an amazing series by Liam Breatnach from years ago that taught the really difficult stuff but I don't think it's possible to buy anymore. If I got my hands on them, I'd probably scan them for Irish learners.


Hm, glad I didn't start the course yet. I'll keep your suggestions in mind, I have some mulling to do now.


I recently changed my homepage from my country's news to a German newspaper's website. This has two benefits: one is that if I want to know what's happening, I have to make the effort to read it in German. The second benefit is that my mind doesn't automatically begin reading German like it does when confronted with English - even if I see the English headlines for one second I start reading them. This means that I only read the news when I want to, which is less and less these days.


That's a fresh take on an old strategy. I like it.

long time uboachan user, longer time idiot. what exactly is this place? is it just a general chan? is it connected to uboachan?

I'll be honest it feels better to have forced positivity than forced negativity. places like 4chan often have people being an asshole to fit in and its unbearable.


I'm glad people are finding and liking this place and that's definitely a plus over other imageboards, something unique definitely and it's the closest I felt to the pre-chanology halcyon days of imageboards.
Yeah, it's nice. People on imageboards usually get so up in arms about outsiders, so it's interesting to see a community like this. It's not something I can browse for hours on end though, just because it's not really a hobby board and I suppose that's for the best.


just out of curiosity, how many people here came from ubuu or some other chan that Seisatsu runs?

The man seems to be quite the cross-pollinator of small chans.


I'm from ubuu, and it's how I found Lain as well (well, I had watched the show before but).

I really appreciate how devoid this imageboard is of typical chan negativity and hate. Dare I say, it's so far removed from what I expect that an image board, that I wouldn't mind telling others I come here.


I've been browsing this board a few months now and i agree, it is cozy!

Yaay! My favorite imageboard still exists!

I'm not sure to feel about it being under new management though, since I really liked the old guy. What are you like, New Admin-sama?

Yeah that'd be nice but I don't think it's expiring for a while. When I have some extra cash I'll try to put a hold on it so it goes to me, but some advertizer could have already sniped it for domain sharking.


File: 1481739731866.png (187.3 KB, 1366x768, sushi.png)

whois.icann.org gives me nothing on the expiration date but pic related.
There is hope!


It says there it expires on July 22nd of next year.


I know, I was just pointing out that whois.icann.org doesn't give the expiration date for some reason but that website does.

I was bored once but picked up a hobby, simple right? It was hard to do anything because I was also very depressed and in a slump so doing the easiest of things such as drawing or reading was difficult for me. I don't know how I overcame it but I'm very glad I found a hobby of my own that doesn't give you a guilty feeling (video games make me feel as if I'm wasting time.) Sage for blog but I would love to know if anyone else had a random spark in their life before as well.


Well now I feel like an idiot. My bad.


Nowadays when I game or write I listen to new music. I plan on getting into the field when I can so the exploration of ideas and people alien to me makes it feel worthwhile. I've really expanded my knowledge of the art of music, and explored my taste more fully. Today I will be checking out the Vibrators, a first wave English Punk band. I also record what I listened to by album and date, so I can always refer to my notes when I am struggling to remember something I liked or learned from.


on time I ran into a homeless guy playing guitar, we ended up talking about old punk music and he said he used to be friends with the bassist from the vibrators when he was young. He was probably making it up but I still think it's interesting.


He might have been telling the truth. They've been touring for 40 years and have gone through several. The only one I know by name is Pat Collier, and he's noone.

Yeah, punk is fun like that, though. Very convival. I haven't met anyone interesting outside of Juggalo rappers and Short Tuesday. There's another really down to earth scene, even Violent J will chitchat with people that catch him without his paint on.

Only post if it's morning for you!

This morning I made fried egg with cayenne pepper, green onion, ketchup, and tabasco sauce. But then I remembered I still have a slice of pizza in the fridge.

A little late but good job on waking up on time!!
Hopefully all has been going well for you these past few days and you've been able to réveillez-vous
on time.


Good morning, sushis.

I woke up early this morning to study for an exam. I didn't get much study done but I did have a great sleep, a good breakfast and some coffee and I feel ready to tackle it! Good luck to anyone else sitting exams rn xx


I had super sweet golden syrup porridge with a cup a tea and it was lovely
I managed to fix my sleep schedule by sleeping later and later and later and later until I fell asleep at 9pm - it is very good now!
I hope everyone here has a wonderful day!

For the longest time I would simply wake up 45min before I had to go to work so I could sleep as late as possible, but the rushed mornings were bringing me down. So I started a habit a few weeks ago of waking up at 5am every day.

Waking up before majority of people is a great feeling, the world around you is so calm and you can just look out the window with a cozy drink/breakfast and soak in the peace & quiet. It also feels good to have the option of getting things done before you need to leave the house, or just relaxing since "the day" hasn't really started yet anyway.


File: 1516285176913.gif (618.49 KB, 500x344, 1498941626298.gif)

This is what I did in high school, and in the first couple months of work after uni.

I know exactly the feel you're talking about.

Unfortunately, I've always found it to be a really difficult habit to keep up.

Anyone tried bullet journaling? I've been using one for the past two months and have found it to be very helpful


File: 1515080494299.jpg (45.37 KB, 603x720, DRhcZ3FUIAEXIaM.jpg)

>bullet journaling
Never heard of this before, reading up on it nao. I keep a journal with me to keep track of everything so I don't have information leaking out of my ears. It's hard to keep everything in my head without feeling a little obtuse. Actively dream journaling is fun as well.

I've never been too apt to music for some reason but over the years have noticed that I get stuff done a lot more efficiently with headphones on.


File: 1515119466699.png (65.15 KB, 640x400, Boos_Miller.png)

As someone who has tried several times to keep up a journal, I've found it to be a perfect system. Functional and helpful as an organizational tool even at its most simple form, but if you're in a mood to do more there's plenty of room for decoration, creativity, etc.
I highly recommend it.

>I get stuff done a lot more efficiently with headphones on

any specific kind of music that helps? I've found that it's oftentimes the lyrics that distract me; I recommend instrumental music, or Sigur Ros (assuming you don't speak Icelandic lmao). The lyrics are totally foreign to me so they just kind of function as another instrument.


It's comfy


I only recently played through Hotline Miami for the first time and loved the way the music paired so well with the slaughterhouse style of it. Synthwave I guess it's called. It makes me pumped to do otherwise tedious tasks. Embed related. Even though it's a terrible habit, smoking a cigarette and having a cup of coffee is nice as well. It's not for everyone tho.

When winding down after getting stuff done, piano soothes the soul: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPNPxWiVO1Q


Synthwave definitely pairs well with a good evening smoke in the car.

628 days

That's how long it's been since I've been gone. I am very sorry for this, but I've been through a terrible lot over this period of time. I hope any member who may still remember me can find it in themselves to accept my apologies, but I can understand if you're angry. Again, all I can do it say I'm very sorry and ask for understanding.

It's very flattering that Seisatsu came forth and undertook rebuilding and hosting sushichan. For this I cannot express enough thanks to him. He's a very good guy. Also, no bully Undoall pls.

I visited the site last week during Christmas for the first time since I disappeared, and in combination with being contacted via email by Yakuza, a member of the IRC, decided it was a cue that it's high time I stopped in to let everyone know I'm okay and quite alive. I've attached a retarded picture of myself as proofs.

To further prove I'm who I say I am, I've redirected http://sushigirl.tokyo/ and http://sushichan.tokyo/ (two of the old redirects) to the current domain.

If you wish ask me questions, please do. Don't be coy. If you wish to contact me directly, email me in the email header of this post, or use the contact form I've created on http://sushichan.org/ . I will also be stopping by the IRC today when I'm not busy. I've missed you all dearly.

Happy 2018, sushis!

I still have to talk to Seisatsu, but yes, I would very much like to moderate. Taking over the site? Possibly, in time. At the moment I don't have the time nor resources to dedicate. Yet. I fired an email to Undoall. I look forward to hearing back from him.


Welcome back! It's good to see you again. I've activated your moderation account as discussed over email, and I wouldn't mind giving you a co-administration account if you want a more active role later.

You made me (and probably many other sushi rolls) very happy uwu

Do you guys enjoy going outdoors? I don't mean getting out of your house, but camping, hiking, anything innawoods.

I find a particular comfy feeling to it.

Dangerous? Where do you live?


In South America. Don't know if it is that dangerous, but I've heard some spooky stories.

I've been to Dartmoor and Bodmin moor, those were some of the wettest days of my entire life. However I loved every bit of it, particularly when I hiked around the tors in Bodmin moor as I had written a paper about the archaeological features of that area just before I went to visit. Thanks for reminding me of that wonderful day sushi roll.
In the second picture you can just make out the remains of medieval fields for crops.
I really miss England.

My friend and I went and hiked a ton over this past summer and fall in the good ol' Appalachian mountains. We went to a lot of waterfalls, which are super comfy in the summer.
I picked up a hammock not too long ago and it is easily one of the comfiest things to do outdoors.
It was tons of fun and helped me get into better shape along with getting me out of the house.


This year I'd really like to get into hiking. I love the idea of packing a lunch and eating it at the top of a hill with a beautiful view. I'd go with my bf because I fear being attacked. Is there anything I should know before I start?

One thing I'd ask about as well is camping. Is camping safe? I'd love to be able to sleep in my car or in the woods with a bunch of friends but I've heard stories about people getting murdered and no weapons of any kind are allowed to be carried in my country so I'd feel very, very vulnerable. How do you protect yourself? Is the only place you're allowed to camp in a campsite?

I'd really recommend renting a boat, if anyone hasn't done it before. I spent one summer going down one of the biggest rivers in my country and stopping off at campsites along the way. We had barbecues almost every night and visited little bars and shops in the small towns. It felt so good to wake up in a new place every morning and get to explore. We got to go on some really beautiful, pleasant walks near castles and farms (tbh if you were into sketching or painting something like this would be a dream but I'm not artistic). My family went fishing and had a lot of fun even though they didn't catch anything lol. I normally get carsick very easily but for some reason, being on a boat didn't bother me. It was really nice and I can't wait to do it again.
