This is it. Your big boss battle of epic scale. Some of you are slowly drawing near. Others of you are already in deep over your head. The transition from Japanese-English to Japanese-Japanese is without a doubt the number one trial you will face during your entire Japanese adventure. It is what separates those who will work their way towards fluency in record time, and those who slow down and may face unfortunate failure. This is your turning point.
And as all brave travelers before you are aware of:
This important and decisive challenge is hard.
Really hard. It’ll test your ability, your endurance and your will power. You will not win easily. You will be beaten down repeatedly and must keep picking yourself up.
Now a large amount of posts on this site have tried as hard as possible to aid you in this area. They provide you guidance on what you need, where you are going, and how to get there. But I’ve come to a realization over the past months thanks to a lot of reader input on JALUP.
The switch from J-E to J-J often requires a guiding hand
Yes, of course you can do it on your own using the basic guides on the site. But I feel this is an area for most people that isn’t great for solo training. It is a place where you want a master sage watching over you and making sure you are following the proper path, right from the beginning. Otherwise it is too new, too foreign, and too much too fast. You need the proper support for your fierce fight awaiting. You need a weapon of unfathomable destruction.
Introducing: The Branch Annihilator
This is the official and final guide to help you blast through the J-J branching process with efficiency and speed. You thought the posts on this site were helpful? Those were nothing. This is everything.
New secrets and strategy behind branching
A strange thing happened while I began writing this guide. When I wrote all the original posts on this site on this subject, it had been a long time since I had trouble doing branches. However, with this guide, I approached a branch like you would. Someone who is just fresh out of J-E and starting J-J for the first time.
And it all started to become clear again. The original methods that I had used when I knew so little and got stuck on branches that extended endlessly started to return to my memory. These are methods that have not been included anywhere on this site because when I first started writing on the topic of branching, I forgot that I had phased out of these original methods when they became unnecessary.
Some of these new branching methods include:
– Sentence Assessment
– Strategic Branch Cutting
– Short Slicing
– Sentence scavenging and how to use a pre-made deck (such as The One Deck)
My hope with this product is to finally clear up all confusion and make the branching process more easily accessible to everyone.
Who is this for?
Anyone who is having trouble creating their own J-J sentences.
Are you overwhelmed? Fear the transition? Unsure of it all? Feel hopeless or like giving up? Then this is for you.
What is inside?
This is a 65 page PDF file which contains:
A. 3 pages of this intro repeated.
B. 22 pages that break down the entire branching process into 16 phases. We work together through a sample sentence from the first phase. Each phase slowly takes you through the process of mastering branches and should make you fully ready to journey on alone.
This guide is loaded with graphics and screenshots, diagrams and charts and very easy to understand step by step instructions simplified so that even the lowest level learner can comprehend and follow along.
The one thing it doesn’t (and can’t) do is actually go through all the complex branches with you. This wouldn’t be realistic because there are so many variables based on your personal knowledge and understanding. However, it does set you up and tell you exactly how to proceed with the sample sentence, and prepares you for all possible outcomes.
C. 40 pages that take all the relevant published posts on Japanese Level Up and groups them together for you to easily have at your disposal for reference.
It’s time to face your fears. Step forward. Fully equip yourself and get ready to challenge this behemoth.
