Hajimemashite, Shannon desu. Yoroshiku onegai shimasu.

 

BTW, why isn't there a Korean language learning thread? Or is there? If not, someone should really create one.

 

there used to be one a couple months ago but it died and it was never made into a sticky.

i'm trying to translate this sentence and I'm kinda in a fixed now

 

怒られからって 静かにしないのいつも通りにしなさい

 

is 通りに is "to act according to ~"? Then is this sentence along the line of "since you were scolded don't just keep quiet"?

this looks like two sentences put together. 怒られたからって静かにしないの。いつも通りにしなさい。

いつも通り(に) is a set phrase that means "as usual".

Like coreofsoul said, it should be "怒られたからって静かにしなの、いつも通りにしなさい" ----> "Don't stay quiet just because you were scolded, be yourself/act like your usual self"

I have this homework due for tomorrow and I completely forgot my notes at my friend's apartment, so I need to know if I understand what I'm doing.

 

I'm currently learning to form sentences with verb te-form + てください

 

My exercise is asking to make a sentence with : すみません, (しお, とる) then it's

 

すみません, しおをとってください? Pass me the salt?

 

Is it formed the same kind of way with てもいいです and てはいけません?

Thinking of picking up Japanese again after a decade of neglect. I don't mind spending some money on resources. Are books like Genki I good? Or are the better ones for beginner level?

Genki is very good. It's used in a lot of Japanese classes.

what else would be good to supplement it and what are some ways you'd recommend learning extra vocabulary. I always found vocabulary lists tedious and boring.

Hmmmm, I recommend you going step by step and learn all the stuff Genki has to offer first.

 

I know you want to learn a language fast and now - we all do.

 

But sometimes the process of becoming good at something takes a lot of time and effort.

 

If you really wanna pick extra vocabulary, I recommend anime and youtube channels for learning basic Japanese. And also apps if you are that kind of a learner.

i'm not sure what method you like when learning vocab, but i own a really great book for vocabulary that i recommend. it's called 日本語単語スピードマスター (Japanese vocabulary speed master) http://www.cdjapan.c...ct/NEOBK-916979

 

it's great because the whole book teaches you only vocabulary but provides example sentences for each entry and comes with an audio CD and english translations. i think learning vocabulary with context is important and makes it easier to remember words

the book you linked to is geared towards JLPT N3 learners, so I don't think it'd be appropriate for silverlining (N3 books tend to have more intermediate level vocab). They'd want to get a N4-N5 version of the book if they are a complete beginner: http://www.cdjapan.c...ct/NEOBK-754186

I saw N3 and then also saw that they had materials fro N5-1. 

 

A bit off topic but anyone know similar materials for Chinese. I speak it at a conversational level but can't read it except for some absolute basics.

Hey, so does anyone know of a good textbook for self-study? Preferably something that has a workbook to go along with it?

 

 

I've been pushing off Japanese a ton since high school kinda got in the way and I lost the structure that I needed (me stopping Japanese school, I mean (had to stop due to regular school rlytearpls.png)). But now that I'm better at managing time and more committed and determined, I want to pick up Japanese again and study on the weekends like I had been int he past.

 

 

If it helps, I'm kind of in between beginner and intermediate level? Like I know how to make sentences and express myself in a basic manner, and I definitely know more than tourist survival Japanese. I've had to write a basic speech before for my class with basic kanji, hiragana, and katakana. I am very weak at vocabulary though, epsecially anything involving kanji.
