It just occurred to me that my sis had never showed how JCP (Japanese for Clever People) worked. Here's a sample in action:
http://users.bestweb.net/~siom/martian_m...Action.wmv


Malala (grief-stricken) (NHK)
Human beings bless her name.
http://users.bestweb.net/%7Esiom/martian.../Malala.7z
"I come from a country which was created at midnight. When I almost died it was just after midday."

An 11-minute movie clip narrated in Japanese, except for some 70 seconds at the beginning (an interview with Malala in English, but subtitled in Japanese) + transcript in Japanese.

A compilation of free online resources, PLUS learner-friendly little somethings.

My Granny
[Image: 14wag7c.gif]
has started learning Japanese; that’s why she has drawn a road map for herself. She always likes to know what Paradise she is stepping into. Or, to put it in plain Broken English, she wants to know what there is to learn.

A small .doc file.
Just a cheat-sheet, the links there won't be working - the content was not uploaded - too bulky. It's more than 3 Tera Bytes! Some of it is posted below.
Perhaps someone will find it useful.
http://users.bestweb.net/~siom/martian_m...20HERE.doc

Packed with
http://www.7-zip.org/
(it's free).
EDIT
Everything that is linked to
!0    Japanese What’s to learn BEGIN HERE.doc
is posted here:
http://users.bestweb.net/~siom/martian_mountain/JCP/

UPDATED 2017 04 01 (not a joke, true)

Download into corresponding folders and unpack.
If you use 7-Zip: right click and choose Extract Here.
Check ! IMPORTANT FoldersTreeAfterUnpackingTheFiles .txt

If something doesn't work:
1. first check the path
2. make sure you've installed all the applications that can read the various file formats
3. install the necessary fonts (they are in ! tools.7z)

There are many subfolders in
http://users.bestweb.net/~siom/martian_mountain/JCP/
the info about the content is to be found in:
! JCP info folders and files.txt

If you unpack them properly, everything should work all right.

Some of the content in
http://users.bestweb.net/~siom/martian_mountain/JCP/
was posted on mediafire before, but they kept deleting the stuff, so I had to reupload it.


The rest is not linked to '!0    Japanese What’s to learn BEGIN HERE.doc' - they are self-contained entities.



I believe:
I believe that language is a system of interdependent elements.
I believe in personally relevant massive comprehensible exposure.
I don’t believe in learning anything without listening.
I don’t believe in memorizing.
I don’t believe in speaking/reading/writing without consciously learning pronunciation (phonemes, minimal pairs, pitch accent, rhythm, intonation).

That's why I learn languages through mL-R (multilingual LISTENING-reading) described here:
http://users.bestweb.net/~siom/martian_mountain/

JCP - Japanese for Clever People - a compilation
Heavily corsslinked documents with links to line-by-line audio, playlists, vocabulary, grammar tables and explanations.
Covers:
kana (various resources),
pronunciation  (phonemes, morae, pitch accent),
grammar with plenty of recorded example sentences
kanji (Japanese bushu names explained thoroughly, stroke order rules, etymologies, various lists, learning tools)

Documents only are inclueded in the packed file, just to give you an idea what to expect. Some info about subfolders is included, too.
Most of the audio content has already been posted, I will be posting the rest.
To get the maximum out of the materials, put them all in one folder, and don't change the names of the files and subfolders for the links to be working properly.
As some of the names of the mp3 vocabulary are very long - they were generated automatically from Jim Breen's dictionary entries - it is wise to make a folder JCP in the root folder of your hard disc and unpack all the content there,
some audio links won't be working if you unpack to a folder with too long a path.
Fortunately, only vocabulary audio files can be affected.

Plenty of the materials were enhanced. By 'enhanced' I mean: an easy to edit, mouse-over pop-up sensitive e-text with line-by-line audio and parallel kanji-spaced hiragana-English texts.

Meant for beginners, but intermediate learners might find it useful, too.

I will be probably updating the packed file - when I add something or find some errors while proofreading.

Updated.

Hatuon - Pronunciation - A compilation
A pitch in time saves nine!
http://users.bestweb.net/~siom/martian_mountain/JCP/
My granny says that listening comprehension and pronunciation are absolutely crucial skills.
Neither is properly covered in learning materials, both are usually ignored.
Unfortunately, there is no good Japanese pronunciation course - I compiled some free online stuff from various Japanese, English, and Russian sources and put everything together.
Unpack to JCP folder - see the comment above.

You might also be interested in 日本語発音アクセント辞典 - search rutracker for it.

If you've ever wondered what a good pronunciation course is, have a look here:
http://users.bestweb.net/%7Esiom/martian...ration.flv
It is for learners of English.

For anyone interested.

http://www.mediafire.com/?rynevzonn4t878s

It's probably the best introduction to Japanese grammar that comes with audio.
The original is romaji only. This is an enhanced edition, it is more learner friendly in many ways.
It is a .doc file written in kanji-spaced hiragana-English, no romaji. The explanations are in clear, plain English.
It comes with line-by-line audio by Japanese speakers.

Another good introductory grammar with audio  is 'Visualizing Japanese Grammar' - I posted an enhanced edition some time ago.
As to Japanese verbs - '250 Essential Verbs' by coscom is ideal. I posted an enhanced edition some time ago too.
By 'enhanced' I mean: an easy to edit, mouse-over pop-up sensitive e-text with line-by-line audio and parallel kanji-spaced hiragana-English texts.

Visualizing Japanese Grammar
Excellent for beginners.
.doc files + line-by-line audio.
It is an enhanced edition.

5000+ Japanese Books (txt format)
http://www.hongfire.com/forum/showthread...504&page=2 (the link seems to be dead)
Quote:...Have you ever dreamt of making a library full of Japanese books but you don't have the money to get your collection? Well, now you can! Your dream will become true in 1-2 hours for free! Here's a collection of Japanese books in text format that I got online.

This collection is comprised of: approximately around 60% are fiction novels, 30% light novels, ~8% reference books and the rest are categories not mentioned (like story dialogues from games like Higurashi, Tsuyokiss, etc). I splitted the whole compilation into segments, for the ease of viewing (plus, I don't want to have all the 5000+ files in a single folder). All files are indexed for quick searching. The files are arranged in Japanese character order, with the name of the author written first followed by the title of the book.

Most of the text files are neat and clean, unlike the txt files that I get from some forums (I won't mention names here) which has a lot of character misorders usually caused by furigana during the OCR reading process. The furigana were somehow placed in the beginning or between sentences causing gibberish context. This gives you a hard time understanding the contents especially if you arereading the document via a translation software (ie, ATLAS).

Anyways, I just want to share this collection to all the bookworms out there like me. I hope you all appreciate this. This may last you a good 15-20 years to finish, hahaha. Happyreading!

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry あのときの王子くん Le petit prince
Text: Japanese - spaced hiragana - French with links to two audio versions.
The text is in 3 columns, there is a column with spaced hiragana in
the middle, it should make it easier to read the original Japanese
text that it written with hardly any kanji (because it is an edition
for children who don't know many kanji) and that makes it more
difficult to read for the beginner in Japanese. The conversion to
spaced hiragana was done automatically so there are some mistakes
there, but it is nonetheless useful for the beginner.
There is a parallel J-English text there too, prepared by Sheetz.
Audio:
Two cleaned versions:

mL-R multilingul LISTENING-reading
http://users.bestweb.net/~siom/martian_mountain/mL-R/
For people who like learning multiple languages at a time.
It was a hobby of mine for some fifty years.
The materials have their drawbacks, of course, nothing is perfect under the sun, the Almighty Amaterasu included.
I haven't found anything better so far, unfortunately.
1. book2 - 40 something languages, Japanese, Mandarin, Korean included.
2. JW books - texts and parallel texts (Japanese and Mandarin included).

These are worth trying:
My Book of Bible Sotries
Learn from the Great Teacher
The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived
The corresponding audiobooks, if available, are to be found here:
http://www.jw.org/en/publications/

Some more systematic notes about L-R (Listening-Reading system) and language learning I wrote some twenty years ago.
They are in Polish, might come handy for someone who knows the language.

I need 梶芽 衣子 Kaji Meiko's lyrics in Japanese.
Who she is:

(the link by Teskal)

I need more.

A request
I am looking for Watchtower Library in Japanese and Korean.
It is a CD-Rom with all the texts published by Jehovah's Witnesses.
The CD-Rom is published once a year.
I only could find these languages:
http://isohunt.com/torrents/?ihq=Watchtower+Library
and I was looking everywhere, Usenet included.

Requests
I'm looking for:
安部公房-砂の女 Woman in the Dunes (Japanese audio)
壺井栄-二十四の瞳 Twenty-Four Eyes (Japanese audio + English, French, Russian, Spanish, Polish, etc texts)
Japanese audio + Japanese e-texts:
村上春樹-国境の南、太陽の西  South of the Border, West of the Sun
村上春樹-海辺のカフカ Kafka on the Shore

半村良-およね平吉時穴道行 (English, Russian, Spanish, etc texts)


I need a tool that would be able to convert Japanese texts with kanji to spaced hiragana, something similar to this http://nihongo.j-talk.com/kanji/, but able to handle large files - novels.
I need it to make parallel texts in three vertical columns: kanji-spaced hiragana-English/Russian. Plus line-by-line audio.
Then learning Japanese would be a piece of cake.


REQUESTS
Nothing to do with Japanese.

Looking for an e-text of 七杀 by 上官午夜 in English/Russian (if available).
水浒传 by 宋怀强 (an e-text in Mandarin and in English)
芙蓉镇 by 古华 (an e-text in Mandarin and in English)

Swedish:
I'm looking for Swedish etexts of the following books:

Orwell, George - Djurfarmen
Hosseini, Khaled - Flyga drake
Hosseini, Khaled - Tusen Strålande Solar
Larsson, Stieg - Män som hatar kvinnor
Larsson, Stieg - Luftslottet som sprängdes
Larsson, Stieg - Flickan som lekte med elden
Proust, Marcel - På spaning ... (4) Sodom och Gomorra
Tjechov, Anton - Damen Med Hunden8
Tjechov, Anton - Stäppen Och Andra Noveller
Alexander Solzjenitsyn - Den Första Kretsen
Arto Paasilinna - Snablar
Arto Paasilinna - Världens Bästa By
Coben, Harlan - Borta för alltid
Coben, Harlan - Ett enda ögonblick
Coben, Harlan - Ingen andra chans
Eco, Umberto - Focaults Pendel
Hemingway - Klockan klämtar för dig
Brown, Dan - da Vinci-koden
Koontz, Dean - När månen skiner
and books by Astrid Lindgren.
I need them to make parallel texts.

Here's why I make parallel texts and post all the links:

Quote:Rediscovering LR

And at last I can use my newly attained freedom to dive into all my LR materials. -Discovering the stories of Kenji Miyazawa and O. Henry (among many others). LR could as well be an abbreviation of "Literature Reading" or "Love to Read": Good native actors, a good translation and the thrill of a great story => language learning euphoria!
A new favourite is Miyazawa's story "The Acorns and the Wildcat", together with the fantastic dramatization at fantajikan: Pure happiness:

LR stands for 'Listening-Reading' described here:

parallel English-Japanese text + audio 3h 44min - a very good male reader.

High school maths lessons - 30 so far, new ones are added.

http://www.nhk.or.jp/kokokoza/tv/suugaku1/index1.html
The vids come with 粗筋 あらすじ outline, summary:
http://www.nhk.or.jp/kokokoza/tv/suugaku...me001.html

If you'd like to download the vids for later viewing, here's a direct url:
mms://wm.nhk.or.jp/wm2/kokokoza-mov/streaming/tv/suugaku1/1614_901.wmv
Just change 901.wmv to 902.wmv, etc, up to 30.
Of course, you have to use a proggy that is able to handle mms files.
OrbitDownloader or HiDownload should be good enough.

buonaparte I already answered your second question:

A question:
Has anyone ever mangaged to actually download the vids? I mean to your computer?

These are very easy to download for later viewing (FNN, TBS, NNN):

You need to use an RTMP dumper to download the FLV stream to a file.

get one here: http://goo.gl/jkj1

then to get the RTMP address for the video, go to the story you want to watch, press 'PLAY' on the video image, and when the little video box expands you need to right-click just outside the flash video but inside the video box. View source, and the address is in there, like this:
Quote:value="fms=rtmp://flv.nhk.or.jp/ondemand/flv/news/&amp;movie=K10056809911_1012070038_1012070041" name="flashvars"></object></td>
edit: that only applies to NHK, I haven't figured out the TBS videos yet (but NHK only took 10 minutes)
edit2: for TBS videos, just click the 'WMP' link (either one) underneath the video. If you open the file in VLC, you can save the stream. Or, you can open the file in a text editor and copy/paste the html link to the actual video (asf) which you find inside into your browser and download the file.

Blahah,
thank you very much.
NHK works (not always), but it seems to be painfully slow. Nothing seems to be working with TBS for me.

Kubelek,
naucz się w końcu japońskiego, młodziutki. Jedyny kłopot z tym jęzorem to brak materiałów do nauki, w mordę i nożem: żadnych nagranych książek - kto by pomyślał, że łatwiej jest o materiały do węgierskiego, fińskiego czy polskiego. Japonia to zacofany kraj, Korea Płd tak samo - nici z audiobuków.

A question:
I have all the sound files from

They're named as follows:
之繞 【しんにょう; しんにゅう】 (n) kanji "advance" radical; shin'nyou; shin'nyuu.mp3
There are more than one hundred thousand mp3 files.

Is it allowed to upload them here?
And does anyone need them at all?

I really really want those sound files. ;p

You could always use a sneaky method like I use: Hide the link in a tinyurl that's customized to be identical to a harmless link at http://sn.im, then post the sn.im link with the understanding that replacing 'sn.im' with 'tinyurl.com' will result in the correct link. ;p

Edit: Example of what I mean: http://tiny.cc/2bk6ows <-- Oh look at that innocent link. You could click it as it is, or you could try replacing 'tiny.cc' with 'tinyurl.com'. Why would you do that? I don't know, you could find anything that way! (via 'totally innocent books' thread).

BTW I posted this background on what efforts went into making them, in case you missed it: http://forum.koohii.com/showthread.php?p...3#pid94193

such files are very interesting and a training how to do such magic. :-)

personally I have no problems to get the links, ok I didn't try it with this page, but after you told about jpod101, I tested it there and I think it is really possible to get the links, but always only one file after file manually and I must rename every name of the file manually.

Hi buonaparte.

Thanks for posting the Essential Japanese Verbs .doc file, just what I needed.

By chance do you have a .doc file for Japanese@Once (also by CosCom)? I have the first CD version that they released many years ago that is only in Roumaji and would love to have a parallel Kanji/Kana text.

Many thanks and keep up the great work.

Tom

In the interest of reducing load on the JPod101 servers, I’ve uploaded all of the JDIC Audio Files.

Number of files: 128,275
Required disk space: 1.68 GB
Format: kana - kanji.mp3
Example: しんがい - 侵害.mp3

Newer Links (each file contains 10,000 audio clips):

Download part 1 via Mediafile
Download part 2 via Mediafile
Download part 3 via Mediafile
Download part 4 via Mediafile
Download part 5 via Mediafile
Download part 6 via Mediafile
Download part 7 via Mediafile
Download part 8 via Mediafile
Download part 9 via Mediafile
Download part 10 via Mediafile
Download part 11 via Mediafile
Download part 12 via Mediafile
Download part 13 via Mediafile

Older Links (these combine to format 1 very large zip file):

Download part 1 via Mediafile
Download part 2 via Mediafile
Download part 3 via Mediafile
Download part 4 via Mediafile
Download part 5 via Mediafile
Download part 6 via Mediafile
Download part 7 via Mediafile
Download part 8 via Mediafile
Download part 9 via Mediafile

For Anki Users:
"[sound:{{text:Reading}} - {{text:Expression}}.mp3]" can be placed into the Answer field to play the sound file. The readings must not have furigana.

I didn't like 128,275 .mp3 files sitting in my Anki folder so I wrote a program that will extract only the needed files from the big zip file.

Download the JDIC Audio Extraction Tool via MediaFile (source code is included)

To use:
1) From Anki, export your words deck as facts only to a .txt file.
2) Open JDIC Audio Extractor, fill in all of the fields, click OK.
You can edit in.txt if you don't want to manually fill in the fields each time.

I also didn't like how mplayer (the media player included with Anki) often times doesn’t play small files to completion. So I wrote a media player that DOES play small files to completion (well, actually I just modified the "contest" example program that comes with the Bass audio library).

Download bassplayer 2.1 via MediaFile (requires Windows; source code is included)

Place bassplayer.exe and bass.dll in the Anki install folder (you should see mplayer.exe there). Then just download and edit Anki's Custom Media Player 2 plugin to use bassplayer instead of mplayer.

Do you upload files larger than 1 GB to file sharing websites?!

Why don't you use torrent or split the file into multi parts.

That is incredibly useful - please consider re-upping or sharing! The files are from jdic, though, or are we talking about single-word audio files from jpod101 now?

I did, and they are perfect! The names are in Japanese (Kana + Kanji); in your case, maybe you don't have support for Unicode enabled, or your zip decompressor doesn't support Unicode (so it messes up the filenames), or the right fonts are not selected - it can be any of these, or something else.

gdaxeman,
thanks a lot.
Never liked zip format. Had to install the latest zip PRO. Now it is OK.


cb4960,
thanks a lot, too.
Now I won't have to upload anything.

The version I have is slightly different.
The mp3 files are named like this:
kanji - hiragana - English. mp3

The English part would be useful in the File name, but without it, it could be interesting, too.

It would be like a Englisch-Japanese-English Dictionary on the PC. I could search with the search funktion of the Explorer.

But I would sort the Files after the first Hiragana syllable. For every syllable another folder.
