  • Jesper T 09/23/2017 at 10:42 am on What Level Are You?Skipping kanji study will make everything harder and take longer to learn. Trust me, been there done that.
  • Greed 09/23/2017 at 10:19 am on What Level Are You?I chose to focus mainly on speaking/listening skills, so I started from Jalup Beginner, skipping Kanji Kingdom. I'm studying in Jalup NEXT and actually I'm at 200 cards seen. Is the level showed on NEXT...
  • NaG 09/22/2017 at 4:43 pm on Jalup AdvancedHmm, that's weird. When I tried using that form the past two times it gave me a confirmation message saying the message was received. Both times I filled in my name and e-mail along with...
  • AdamAdam 09/22/2017 at 3:33 pm on Jalup AdvancedI didn't receive a message. Did you use this form and fill out the required fields? https://japaneselevelup.com/jalup-line-group/

  • Skullclutter 09/22/2017 at 8:21 am on Learning Japanese through Flash Cards vs. TextbooksI'm a hybrid learner. I like going over the textbook and exercises to make sure I've really learned the concepts and know how to apply them, then I review the example sentences in Anki to...
  • NaG 09/21/2017 at 12:54 pm on Jalup AdvancedI resubmitted, hopefully with correct spelling this time!
  • TheJapanCode 09/20/2017 at 4:28 pm on Jalup AdvancedThanks for your answer! I'm already blasting through media so that part wont be a problem haha, rewatching shows I have watched in dub / sub in the past that I've been meaning to rewatch,...
  • AdamAdam 09/20/2017 at 7:00 am on The Difference Between 嫌 and 嫌いThere is a lot to wonder about these words!
  • Victoria 09/20/2017 at 5:58 am on Jalup AdvancedI would, especially if you are having trouble with the previous deck. Stopping to take breathers can help a lot and just help all those things solidify in your head. When I take breaks from...
  • TheJapanCode 09/20/2017 at 2:18 am on Jalup AdvancedWould you (or anyone else) say that it would be a good idea to take a break from new sentences in between decks, to focus on reviewing and solidifying the previous deck's knowledge? IE finish...
  • Victoria 09/19/2017 at 8:22 pm on Jalup AdvancedIt's definitely active, maybe try applying again and spell your address correctly :)? Everyone is really nice on it and it's worth joining if you're able to.
  • Candy 09/19/2017 at 3:19 pm on The Difference Between 嫌 and 嫌いThanks for this interesting distinction. Even though I'm still using Jalupnext beginner, I did notice the two words and wondered. But I didn't wonder as much as you evidently did!
  • NaG 09/19/2017 at 10:02 am on Jalup AdvancedIs the JALUP Line Group still active? I submitted an application a while ago and got no reply, so I figured it might've been dead. Either that or I mis-spelled my email address.
  • Victoria 09/18/2017 at 5:47 am on Jalup AdvancedI finished Advanced yesterday! やった!!! For those of you who finished Beginner and Intermediate, this is more of the same in a good way. Advanced is definitely easier than Intermediate because you're just more used...
  • Bon 09/16/2017 at 8:02 am on Jalup Situations – BeginnerI think it would be a fantastic idea. You could even implement some stuff from the Intermediate Deck to make the transition to Intermediate even smoother. That way these decks can almost as 'pre-intermediate' bridge...
  • Arthur 09/15/2017 at 3:50 pm on Jalup Situations – BeginnerWould be great. Learning to listen is very difficult and this is great practice.
  • AdamAdam 09/13/2017 at 6:20 am on Jalup Situations – BeginnerYes, I definitely do. I'm seeing if it is possible to fit in a Jalup Situations Beginner - Part 2 (if there is enough variety of sentences to create more unique situations), or just go...
  • Arthur 09/13/2017 at 1:08 am on Jalup Situations – BeginnerThank you Adam. This is really good stuff. Do you have plans for more?
  • Jen 09/12/2017 at 5:59 pm on Japanese That’ll Make you Sound Really Good – May RainIt's also a pretty useful word to know for business Japanese, where it's used to mean continuously: As an example from an actual email sent to me by a Japanese colleague: "原稿は1/27から2/16にかけて章ごとに五月雨で入稿する予定です。" It really confused...
  • AdamAdam 09/12/2017 at 6:20 am on Jalup Situations – BeginnerFor listening practice like this, gotta keep the language speed as real as possible!
  • AdamAdam 09/12/2017 at 6:16 am on Jalup Situations – BeginnerThis isn't really an "Anki" product, as it is a listening product. The Anki deck is more of an afterthought to the actual listening practice created through the audio files.
  • AdamAdam 09/12/2017 at 6:12 am on Jalup Situations – BeginnerThanks Chase. You'll eventually blow your professor away with your knowledge once you can output it all.
  • AdamAdam 09/12/2017 at 6:08 am on Jalup Situations – BeginnerA little extra native listening practice never hurts.
  • AdamAdam 09/12/2017 at 6:05 am on Jalup Situations – BeginnerI definitely hope so!
  • AdamAdam 09/12/2017 at 6:03 am on Jalup Situations – BeginnerI'll eventually get around to those too.
  • Jesper T 09/12/2017 at 3:10 am on Jalup Situations – BeginnerI have had a chance to learn a few cards now, and I really love that the speaker holds nothing back. This is full native speed with all the quirks that come with it. I...
  • Anonymous 09/11/2017 at 5:41 pm on Jalup Situations – BeginnerYes, I'd also like to see this on Jalup Next.
  • Juan 09/11/2017 at 3:31 pm on Jalup Situations – BeginnerWill this come to Jalup Next? I don't really touch Anki anymore.
  • Chase Kolozsy 09/11/2017 at 11:04 am on Jalup Situations – BeginnerSo far I am a big fan of it. Until this came out, I had never found anything with content that I was 100% familiar with. Even though I am currently working on expert, I...
