Looking for learning partners

Hi there,

I am learning Japanese through the reversed tree and would like to look for learning partners who are going through the same path.

Thanks!

Ah... It would be nice for the learners of the Japanese to English reverse tree to come together to learn and liven up the Japanese forum. We may even attract some native Japanese speakers to help us out and we help them (as if that's not how the forums are suppose to work).

I am really quite the beginner, but I am more than happy to help where I can!

Feel free to do so. Our Japanese learners don't show up much in the forums because

  • More than 90% of them are estimated to be using smartphones, so they don't have access in the first place
  • AND they're shy in general, and there aren't much posts in the forum so they tend to be reluctant to add a new one

So I think you're absolutely right. Your activities may attract new people. As a forum moderator I won't be endorsing anything but will be here for your help, including grammar questions.

Hi Sagabomb,

I studied Japanese for 7 years in evening school here in Belgium. I'm doing the reverse tree too because I think I can always improve my Japanese. Same goes for English though :).

If you have any questions regarding the reverse tree/Japanese, feel free to ask me, maybe I'll be able to help.

hey, I'm doing the same thing. It looks like we are about in the same spot on the English tree.

I've studied Japanese for 3 years in school, and I have a fairly okay grasp on it for the most part. I haven't really done much on the reverse tree lately since I got stuck on the prepositions skill, but I've been keeping up my knowledge with Memrise.

Yeah, I am doing the reverse tree too. There are few bumps here and there, but it is good method to learn in general.

Hello, I'm also going through the reverse tree. I'm finding it do-able, although the lessons take way more time than the forward tree. Also, the difficulty of individual lessons is highly inconsistent...some I go through in a pretty straightforward way, but a few of them have taken me 30-40 minutes of exhausting mental work (but rewarding!!! it's mentally stimulating and I find I am getting a huge amount of the process of trying to decipher or figure out the language by looking at different examples and experimenting with DuoLingo marking things right and wrong!)

I'm about 1/3rd of the way through with it, after less than two months. I've been going to a weekly conversational group with a lot of native Japanese speakers, which has been helping me a ton, and I also know a fair amount of Chinese characters and I'm finding that's helping me a surprising amount with the Kanji. It is already translating to improved listening comprehension both when overhearing conversations in person, and watching anime or listening to news broadcasts. I still can't really hold a conversation yet though but I can feel it...I'm getting close and I bet by the time I'm through the tree I'll be able to!

Overall I'm loving it and it makes me wonder if learning other languages by reverse course would be worthwhile...it feels much more immersive than the "forward" courses.

One question I have for others...is it just me or does the tree seem to decay more slowly than in "forward" courses? I find that my course has stayed pretty fully practiced and the skills decay only infrequently...I find myself hitting the practice button repeatedly even when the tree is fully gold, because I feel like I don't know a lot of the stuff well enough and I want more practice with it before moving on.
