#10 Japanese proficency? in Off Topic

Hey, been studying Japanese for 4 years and 1 month ago I took the N1 level.

Someone once told me that the Japanese that you see in anime is the way Japanese people would like to be, and this is a very true statement in my opinion. While anime is a good way to improve your listening ability and pick up a few random words, sentence patterns and the way the speak in anime is pretty different when you compare it to an actual Japanese person.

In anime, characters speak in a direct way, which is totally the opposite to Japanese people, who prefer to basically imply everything. That's where the expression ''空気を読む'' comes from, which translates to ''read the room'. If you try to imitate anime characters, it would be perceived as rude.

With that out of the way, Japanese language is not as hard as people might think, but the shit that's difficult, is really difficult (looking at you, keigo). To be honest the degree of difficulty depends on your ultimate goal with the language: Want to work in Japan? Want to understand anime without subtitles? Want to just be able to have a basic conversation? Depending on your answer, your study focus would be a bit different.

I think most of the students that I talked to agree that kanji is the hardest part (maybe because there are so many) and get anxious when they start learning because they want to be able to write all of them, but I think this is a mistake. Of course it's cool if you do that but I don't think it is worth the effort, you would be better learning to write the most basic ones and then focus on the multiple readings. Don't learn isolated kanji, rather learn kanji with words they may appear in. Also, learn the proper order to write them since it will help you greatly to remember them.

I recommend using https://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/easy/ to a beginner-to-intermediate level and pair it with a extension called rikaikun, which will help you with kanji reading as you read. Of course, don't forget about the good old jisho.org, though most of the sentences examples are garbage.

#12 TOP 10 TEAM FORTRESS 2 PLAYERS in Videos

Since you are russian I was expecting LMS/uV reko aka iridescent toucan aka mel gibson aka Black Shar Pei to show up because he was the only scout in this game who was at schocky's level during Epsilon's prime and you didn't even mention him. Shame on you.

@Twiggy You can find them on gameplays and video analysis from TheViper or SpiritOfTheLaw for example. Those are also listed in some AoE2 forums and reddit.
So for example, you can make a villager build something and command him to go mine gold when the building is complete

glassi would like someone to report back whether they ruined the gameplay, if not i might make this the first video game i've bought in like seven years, purely to play the new campaigns

if truly all they changed is the graphics, that's great news

from what I have heard it is basically the same with some improvements like: you can queue technologies, villager tasks and there is a button with which farms get reseeded automatically.
44 mins for release!

Obviously yes
I really hope Microsoft puts big money into the game, it really deserves it and the competitive scene has been going pretty strong for a while already

After many years calling out the scout illuminati and be called crazy, I'm glad people are slowly seeing the light.
