The BFF Tokyo Guide to How to Learn Japanese
learnjapanese.bfftokyo.com has been our passion project to help foreigners start from a beginner level of Japanese and having no idea what to do to reaching an N2 or N1 level of Japanese.
A very tiny minority of people have the sheer will power to force through and make it all the way to N1 completely on their own, but this is only a tiny minority. Our guides have been designed to help people of all levels of motivation and skills to learn Japanese. There is no one way to learn Japanese, so we have focused on providing multiple different viewpoints to help you find YOUR WAY on how to learn Japanese.
You can find articles on Japanese learning apps, YouTube videos, and how to learn the various skills involved in language like speaking, reading, kanji, listening, and vocabulary. We also provide articles on how to make it to the next level above you. For example, how to learn Japanese as beginner or intermediate or advanced learner.
