Club for the learners of Japanese - dedicated for JLPT preparation and general improvement.
To mark my 100-day-streak - I present to you my club for learning Japanese :D
The code is: WFMRBT
The club is dedicated to those who are serious about learning Japanese and consider the possibility of taking a JLPT test in the future, and anyone who wants to improve their Japanese beyond the level offered by Duo. Everyone is welcome!
I have no rule for kicking anyone out - even if you earn 0 exp in any week (I myself often do so), you are safe to stay there :)
Well, I can't speak for other users, but currently I'm practicing three languages: Japanese (finished, but doing the reverse course) - daily, Chinese (not finished) and Esperanto (finished) - at least once a week, to keep the lessons golden.
The rest of the languages I either learned earlier at school (German, French) or tried to learn the basics (Russian, Spanish, Turkish) but never had time to actually go through the whole course. I practice them occasionally, to not to forget them.
Of all those, I have 4 trees completed: English and Polish, which both I speak fluently (English is learned, Polish is native), Japanese and Esperanto.
I choose one language as my main focus (Japanese) and another one (Chinese) to do when I have more time, but I learn the second one slower. And I guess that's it, no big secret really ;) The biggest difficulty is probably finding time for that on a particularly busy day, but the minimal studying routine for me takes only about 0,5-1 hour.
Greetings, I joined your Club. Hope I can aport something.
I started using Duolingo quite some time ago, but did used the platform that often. I started to use the platform again, and I am planning to stick to it with more dedication. I wish to be able to present the N5 this year, so I am using Duolingo along other sources, with that said, よろうしくおねがいします.
For books - not really (Genki covers only about N5-N4). But there a couple of good sites for that: (http://japanesetest4you.com), (http://www.tanos.co.uk), and there are also decks for kanji on Memrise, for example: (https://www.memrise.com/course/45725/jlpt-n1-2000-vocabulary-words-japanese/).
There are also apps, such as "Japanese Kanji Study", but it's full version is paid. But there are many more free apps available, just for the study of kanji.
