[Panel suggestions] Teaching Yourself Japanese
« on: May 23, 2017, 06:51:58 PM »

Hi all,

I'm running the Teaching Yourself Japanese panel this year (I've run the Japanese 101 panel the last two years). I admittedly haven't started writing the panel yet (eheh), so I think this is a good opportunity to maybe ask people who are interested in attending what kind of material they would like to cover. A decent portion of the panel will be Q/A, but I thought it would also be good to gather a few common questions people might have about learning Japanese and to just include them in the panel proper.

As someone who learned Japanese (albeit poorly), maybe giving a basic primer on verb conjugation? I think that would be something very useful to others.

Hm I could go over the basics of that sure. I think though maybe that fits more with the Japanese 101 panel (which I'm giving again this year).

I taught myself Japanese in 1999 what helped me most is constant repetition of writing Katakana and Hiragana and pronouncing them
Also counting in Kanji ...Basic but very important

Yeah I think writing is definitely something I want to cover. Memorization techniques and resources and the like.

Random digression: Interesting that you mentioned writing practice - I think that was probably true back a few years, but the digital age has made handwriting all but obsolete. Some of my native Japanese friends actually have forgotten how to write some of the standard but less common high school characters.
