I remember when I was younger and improving my English, probably one of the most effective tools for doing this was reading posts in forums and then being able to reply to those posts.
I wonder if anyone here knows of a something like Reddit or 4Chan but in Japanese.
I’m aware of 5chan and tried using it but didn’t really understand the format or which the most active boards are, so if anyone is more familiar with that and could give me some pointers that would be great.
So basically 2ch? I haven’t had much luck finding proper forums in Japanese but there’s tons of 2chan threads out there. Just type a topic into Google with the keyword “2ch”. You will need to figure out the slang though.
Whoa I didn’t know that. I haven’t really read threads there in a few years so I guess I’m out of the loop But yeah, finding anything through the main page was really confusing for me so I always relied on Google.
Joking aside, a less-structured platform like Twitter might work for what you’re looking for. In the search bar, put some hiragana or kanji text, see what comes up, follow some people, in no time you’ll be in Japanese Twitter.
i’ve also never used twitter and only recently thought about creating one solely to follow all the japanese artists I love. I feel like the 280 character limit is great for reading comprehension. Thanks @ctmf
My VPN was already set to Japan so I totally forgot…
Anyway, OP, when you go to 5chan there is a guide/faq that will help explain somethings.
From the main page click the center and then look at the various topics along the left side. Just book mark the ones that interest you. At the bottom of each page you can enter a response.
As for what “1:612レスCP:9” means, Idk yet. Just started looking at 5ch recently (as in twice lol)
What exactly is it that you wanted clarification on though?
