ThatJapanesemanYuta (or something similar, it will come up)

 

Hes great! He does a lot of culture videos, and makes email subscriptions of various levels for learning Japanese.

 

Japanesepodcast101

 

Great for everything from grammar to kanji.

 

Fun Youtubers I like:

 

Rachel&Jun

Jun's Kitchen 

 

Both are incredible! Tons of good information and cultural videos.

 

Avoid youtuber Kanadajin at all costs. She is a terrible person, and hurt a lot of Jvloggers before. Don't give her revenue.

However I'm a bit  reluctant to keep on trying to learn Japanese, every time I have use Duolingo for it I dream with very clear Japanese written words that I cannot even read because of course I'm just starting lol,  I even rarely dream with written words in Spanish lol. In the last one I was a Sensei to be and my master which I could only hear was pushing me to give better kicks, every time I improved and got disciplined it was reveled a new word and the goal was to decode the secret message  :mellow: :lol:. I want to kick nothing, I'm not even familiar with martial arts or the like, I'm familiar with nothing that's Japanese, so I find very odd this dreams. :lol: 

 

Is any of you dreaming in other languages? :unsure:

I get Tetris effect in dreams due to watching too much anime sometimes. So you can say durring those incidences I feel like I'm fluent.

Not tetris literally lol. Its just named after tetris. Its a short term memory thing. It was named after the incident that appeares when tetris was first out. It happens any time you're focused on something completely for a few hours. You can get it with everything. It kinda burns into your memory, so you can't stop thinking about it, and it interfears with sleep.

It used to occur to me when I was studying to become a fashion designer (I quit right away BTW) but I had many dreams about clothes and shapes and new dresses, my brain was doing cool when sleeping and it was nice.  

I have a sleep disorder, were I get hypnagogic hallucinations and sleep walk when I focus on things for a while (Which pretty much is what tetris effect is, but you're not half asleep). So it's very uncomfortable to me because I'm not only very prone to tetris effect, it affects me worse than normal people. Since I don't have a very firm grip on reality, due to my habit of dissassociating and maladaptive daydreaming. The tetris effect can overshadow my mind (make me loose my sense of self) a good deal, resulting in obsessive behavior around the focus of whatever I was doing that caused it. It causes me to act it out in dreams, think in specific patterns, and my body will sometimes react to the mental images because I'm so engrossed in it. 

 

I got it with anime, were I suddenly understood Japanese and could think in it somewhat. 

 

I got it with Supernatural once, that resulted in gory nightmares and me thinking I was Sam Winchester a few times. 

 

Great for learning stuff though :P
