Nihongo wakaranai

Postby reineke » Fri Nov 09, 2018 11:19 pm

Japanese...group. No membership required

Space is at a premium so please don't post just to inform everyone that you're joining, that this is a good/bad idea, or that you're already a member of the Asian group.

I would like to invite the more advanced language learners/loggers to participate and share their stories.

While I have linked to some very interesting logs, I need to mention that in many cases individual learning paths are buried in a jungle of individual notes.

Too much planning, organization and pedantic minute by minute timekeeping also interferes with reading.

I'll keep following this thread and share some good stories when I have them (basically a little further down the line when I get good at Japanese, whenever that will happen).

I found this to be the one of the most useful guides to learning Japanese. It's more of blueprint of a potential path to take than a proper guide but it has some good suggestions and advice and contains a lot and lot of valuable resources.

Does anyone know of Japanese textbooks that teach the pitch accent of words right from the beginning? Well, other than the much maligned Japanese: The Spoken Language by Eleanor Harz Jorden. That one teaches pitch accent from lesson one, but I don't think I've ever come across a non-negative review of it...

At least some editions of みんなの日本語 indicate the pitch accents in the vocabulary sections, but I'm not sure if it actually teaches pitch accent in any systematic fashion.

By the way, the Online Japanese Accent Dictionary apparently has pitch accent information to accompany each unit of several popular textbooks (you'll see them if you scroll down the page).
