New cheat sheet! – Cool Japanese

Cool Japanese

It’s been four and a half long years since Nihonshock released its original Basic Japanese cheat sheet, and finally I got around to making another freebie!

Today I’m releasing Cool Japanese, which is less serious than my previous sheets but still packed with lots of great content. I tried to focus on topics that were interesting (even if they were a little obscure or advanced), and including examples that were not only useful but fun to read. Plus, I sprinkled tons of my favorite vocabulary and phrases throughout. The target audience is JLPT level N3-1, but beginners will probably find something too.

There are even a couple Easter eggs in there from Steins;Gate and Fist of the North Star. Can you find them? (^^)

Head over to the Cool Japanese page for the download. It’s 100% free and I encourage everyone to share it with their friends, followers, classmates and study buddies.

Note that this cheat sheet is digital only!!
It is not (and will never be) a member of the printed Japanese Cheat Sheet Pack.

(However, it may (at some point in the very distant future) be a member of a separate set of printed cheat sheets.)

Update to the Numbers and Time digital cheat sheet

Nihonshock just made a minor update to the Numbers and Time cheat sheet (PDF version).

Here are the changes:

  • Updated the final Japanese year (年号) from 2012 (平成24年) to 2013 (平成25年).
  • Added readings for the 14th and 24th days of the month (these days can be optionally read: じゅうよっか and にじゅうよっか)
  • Added 日(にち) to the list of counters which take the reading よ for 4, instead of よん.
  • Corrected the reading for the 10th day of the month from とうか to とおか.

You can get the new file by simply downloading it again from the same link which you received by email at the time of your purchase.

If you’ve used up all your download attempts and the link has stopped working, please contact me using the email address which you used to purchase the sheet, and I will send you the updated one.

New Digital Cheat Sheet: Onomatopoeia

Hello everyone, I hope your Golden Week is off to a good start!

Yesterday Nihonshock made available a brand-new Japanese cheat sheet. The topic of the sheet is Onomatopoeia. Click here to check it out!

The sheet is primarily vocab based, so if you’re interested you’ll also want to check out the accompanying post over on the regular blog.

Since Nihonshock now offers two different digital sheets (plus the free Basic Japanese sheet), there is now a package deal where you can get both “Onomatopoeia” and “Numbers and Time” for $4 USD, as opposed to $2.50 each.

The Onomatopoeia sheet is currently only offered in digital form. It is not a part of the printed set.

Onomatopoeia is a topic that can be hard to find good resources on, and we’re sure you’ll find it useful to have such a large and detailed collection all in one single-page document.

Best of luck with your studies!

Numbers and Time Digital Version Released!

A digital version of Nihonshock’s “Numbers and Time” Japanese cheat sheet is now available.

This PDF has received the same treatment as last week’s digital overhaul of the Basic Japanese sheet, which was made available last week.

The price is just $2.50 USD. That’s like adding a new resource to your language materials collection for the price of a cup of coffee! So if you’re interested please check it out!

My highly tentative position on future digital releases is that if the Numbers and Time PDF does well and doesn’t negatively impact paper-version sales, I want to release up to 3 more of the sheets from the full pack. I will not be making the entire set available in PDF form.

Also, I am currently working on a completely new sheet that will be released only in digital form. The working title is “Cool Japanese”. :-)

Basic Japanese sheet now optimized for digital use

If you have been using the PDF of the Basic Japanese sheet rather than a printed copy, you’ll definitely want to download the new digitally-optimized version of the sheet, which I just uploaded.

What’s different? The content is the same, but the file has been reworked so that it is better for those of you who want to use it on your computer (or computer-like device). Here are the changes:

  • The format is now single-page and wide (like your computer screen) instead of 2 page and tall
  • Text is now selectable
  • Colors have been adjusted to show up better on a computer screen (they’ve been darkened a bit)
  • The file is now totally vector/text based, that means faster loading, smaller file size, and total zoom freedom

 

So what are you waiting for, go download it from the Basic Japanese cheat sheet page!
