  • Aeronaut 09/24/2017 at 10:23 pm on 5 Anime as Deep as a Philosophy BookErased kinda made me think. The main character tried to hard to save his classmates, and it was kinda cool, and after, I was just like, wow. I haven't watched any of the anime you...
  • AdamAdam 09/24/2017 at 10:53 am on What Level Are You?The level should still be accurate because it's not like you aren't putting in the time to gain that experience. Your time is just being portioned out differently.
  • 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.
