“Oh bro-man, I met this lady the other day.”
“Tell me more bro-highness. Describe her for me. I want details.”
“Yeah… like was she, you know… like… you know.”
“I don’t know… actually… I just realized… I don’t have any adjectives in my vocabulary.”
How many times has this happened to you? Someone wants the nitty gritty details, but you don’t know any adjectives. I can tell you, this doesn’t happen to me anymore, not since I used this Japanese study deck to learn the 200 most useful adjectives out there.
I should be honest, though. There’s actually a lot more adjectives than that. In terms of the “basic-ish” adjectives, I’d tally that number to around 1,000. That’s a lot, sure, but here’s a secret… 800 of them are way less important than the 200 you’re about to learn. It goes like this:
You learn 20% of the adjectives you’re “supposed” to learn, but this 20% is very carefully chosen.
Using this 20%, you magically get 80% (or more) of the benefit. So, even though you’re only learning 200 words, you’re actually 80% there.
Sure, it’s kind of like you’re cheating, but if you learn these 200 adjectives, you’ll be able to describe almost anything, practice Japanese conversation way more effectively, and recognize and know 80% of all the adjectives you see in regular daily life. This is the most efficient way to learn your adjectives. You’ll save so much time and get to a near-fluent level a lot faster this way. We did the sorting work for you, now all you have to do is learn the words!
This deck runs on Anki (an absolutely awesome and free spaced repetition software you can download at ankisrs.net) and also comes with audio (that plays every time a word comes up so you can practice listening and speaking as well), and an excel and pdf document containing a list of all the words (for your reference). And, just like all our digital products, the refund policy is “anytime before you die,” so, you know, just stay alive and study hard!
