It's a very good idea. I listen, read, repeat and type in all at the same time. I've already listened-repeated-read-typed-in thousands of computer pages. There's one condition: your pronunciation should already be good. And you must be able to type like a professional typist, then it doesn't take so much time and is very enjoyable.


Speed is going to be a problem, however, and not because of my typing abilities but because of the inherent difficulties of Japanese and its kanji. But I think my typing speed should increase exponentially the more I do it. Thanks for sharing your experience!

Update.

I'm past 2/3 of the way through HP2, and almost done putting the sentences from DBJG into the SRS. Only problem is that I'm using a web based program and it's been having problem for the last few days. If I continue having problems logging on I may have to look for a new flashcard program.

Sheetz. I started entering sentences from DBJG into anki a while ago, when my 日本語の先生 recommended I get it. Anki is so superior in comparison to mnemosyne and supermemo(the other ones I've used). If you haven't tried it, I would recommend to give it a try. It's also pretty good at importing various different types of text files.

Thanks, I'm currently testing it out, and it looks good. I tried it last year, but whenever I used the synch function all my cards got deleted for some reason. Hopefully I understand it better this time.

Still steadily working my way through Harry Potter 2 and DBJG. I should be done with both within the next few days. After that I guess I'll start working through DIJG and begin using the audiobook for HP2.

I also stumbled across a website which contains the complete Japanese text for Harry Potter 1, so I might try putting together a parallel text for that when I get the time.

In other news, I found out that thejapanshop.com is selling the newly released Dictionary of Advanced Japanese Grammar at a preorder discount, and the Harry Potter 7 Japanese translation will be released this summer as well. I'm looking forward to both of them.

I'm finally done reading HP2 and entering the sentences from DBJG. I will now go through HP2 while listening to the Japanese audiobook and begin sentence mining DIJG. In addition I've started reading HP3.

leosmith, I can't say that I have seen any parallel texts of any YB works, but I will keep an eye out for any.



Hi Leo and sheetz. Just wanted to make you aware of "Read Real Japanese Fiction: Short Stories by Contemporary Writers" by Emmerich. It features among other things one short story by Banana Yoshimoto and a CD with audio narrations. No parallel text but translations of complex passages.

Sheetz, are you going all japanese all the time way with sentence mining?
DBJG is A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar - for anyone else wondering. I had to look that up :)

If you're asking if I create the cards the way he does it, then the way I do them is to use the Japanese sentence as the question and then the translation as the answer. I don't put the answer in Japanese because that's just too much trouble for me.
