how long would you need to study japanese to reasonably navigate around tokyo or other big cities in japan on your own? I want to go but I'm no good beyond basic communication skills and I'm not really comfortable being illiterate and lost

The big cities are actually quite english friendly and at any train station or hotel you could find an attendant who speaks english. Signs and announcements as well usually alternate between a japanese and english version.

To actually answer how much you should know, I would recommend focusing on vocabulary and kanji and stick to basic grammar. I found it was more important to know what words people were saying rather than the relation between them. And kanji is very necessary because most signs are written in kanji, and unless you are reading something written for kids it will not have the furigana above it. Also many names, especially that of places, are kanji and many are just expected to be known by even little kids just because they are ubiquitous (words like come and go).

how often do people use non-jouyou kanji in real life or on signs/shops?

I found this website, it has a lot of features to help you read simple news I think a bit better than NHKeasy, I'm at 4 months studying and slowly getting through these articles. I don't ever really read news so everything is pretty new to me. I find it easier to just read the sentences and not try to interpret them to english, rather it's easier to just accept that the point was gotten to me and I don't need to know what it would be in english

I feel like I'll never learn japanese fluently, I've been studying for 9 months and I'm at like a baby level, I could probably ask for directions or ask for food/water and tell people if I understand them or not, and maybe ask for stuff at the grocery

 No.39125

>>39085
9 months is not a very long time in the context of language learning, especially if your native language is linguistically distant (e.g.: English-Japanese). So keep it up!

It's two years old and nobody has anything to show for it. The entire board is doomed crabs who failed to learn Japanese and obliterate their dopamine wiring from watching little anime succubi. It's quite possibly the most unproductive thread on the internet.

Since 2016? Big whoop. It doesn't show and a few outliers doesn't make up for the overall inefficiencies compared to pro classes. This is one of the biggest chans so there's no real excuse.

Why are you even replying? What's the purpose of his posts in the first place? Just let him crawl back to whatever hole he came out of.
