I’m still relishing the sweet fact that Kaguya, the supposed god-like being and ancestor of all chakra - was despatched in all of twelve chapters. Even Zabuza lasted longer than her. Meanwhile, two hundred and thirty-one chapters after he shows up for real, Madara’s still around. Was there ever really a contest between them? He puts her to shame in every category.
Yup. As for what tips I can give… it helps to immerse yourself in the language. Start out learning the most common phrases. Learn some new words everyday (it’s okay to start with five or so). Learn the alphabet (if you wanna learn Japanese, just start with the kana, kanji can come later). Look at media like films and series and take note of words you hear frequently. Listen to music in the language you want to learn. Look up the lyrics and commit these words to memory.
Once you’ve got those down, try weaning yourself off of subtitles and figuring out song lyrics without checking first. You’ll make mistakes, especially with music, but don’t get discouraged, you’ll get there. Get yourself some grammar and syntax books and read (if you’re learning Japanese, these are particularly vital). Learn your conjugation. Learn particles. Learn a few colloquialisms and slang words if you want. Get acquainted with dialects (I suggest you focus primarily on the standard dialect, the others you can learn later) as well as common idioms/expressions. Try to construct simple sentences in your mind (you’ll eventually be able to have entire conversations). Try to think in the language you’re learning. Practise with some native speakers (you can find some online at busuu.com). Your speech will be textbook and stilted at first, but taking note of how natives speak will help you sound more natural (but ask them if it’s okay first, you might unintentionally say something weird XD).
Ehhh, hope this helps. :3
Very useful for any language study
