I've always just kinda omitted it from my personal translations, but how would any of you handle translating 「っ......」to an english equivalent without the use of "action" phrases like (grunts) or the like? it's so trivial I don't want to randomly pester my prof about it rip

personally I would advise against duolingo since a lot of advanced Japanese learners found problems with it when testing it out. I've tested it out myself and duolingo Japanese doesn't explain the kana well enough so I often see a lot of questions like "why is がっこう pronounced gakkou and not gatsukou" on the LearnJapanese subreddit (when you see a small つ, that means the consonant is doubled). If you like the Duolingo interface, LingoDeer has a similar interface and is preferred over Duolingo.

well that's alright, i already know kana, i'm just trying to get more fluent in it. so i guess if i didn't there would be a problem but i'm just hanging out until the hard stuff comes along (kanji). thanks though.

I am doing a survey for a class and I could really use some Japanese responses. What are some common forums I'd be able to post to to get some people to take a short (~ 1 minute) online survey?

Sorry - what I mean is I would like some responses from Japanese people. I made 2 versions of the survey and one of them is in Japanese. It’s for a company that is based in Japan.
