Is anyone else here on /otakuvip/ trying to learn or study Japanese? I’ve been trying on and off for a few months by myself but I’m not super confident, though I’ve noticed that I can sometimes understand simple sentences in the anime I’m watching even without subs, which is a cool feeling in itself. I don’t think I’ll get too far without classes though so that is my next step




Been learning for about a year and a half now. I'm pretty happy with how it is going. You don't need classes, they can even hold you back if you're in a slower one. The key is to stay motivated and study every single day. Once you get over the beginners hump and have some grammar and vocabulary things get much more enjoyable. Check out this site for some good tips and resources: https://itazuraneko.neocities.org/index.html

There is also a consistent thread on /v/ you can check out and ask for help in.



The only reason I’m even considering classes is because I’m already going for a linguistics degree so might as well throw in a language I’m interested in. I do agree that classes can be slow and that frequent self-study is more often more beneficial. The only thing about classes is that you can get more face-to-face speaking and maybe I could pursue the English-teacher meme. Of course, for wanting to learn to understand the majority of anime without subtitles – a good and rewarding goal in itself – classes aren’t needed as much. I can definitely understand more than I used to without subs but if I were asked to produce a sentence I couldn’t produce more than super basic set phrases



True. Speaking practice is one of the advantages of taking classes. I guess if you actually care about talking with nips then it would be beneficial.
