    Studying Japanese?

    Here are some tips for you!

    Teachers in a language school are responsible for providing lesson plans and assigning homework to improve your understanding of the language- in this case, Japanese. Teachers may provide a sense of direction in class, but what about self-study?

    Our article, Japanese Studying Tips, will provide you tips for effectively studying the Japanese language!

    The Hiragana Alphabet

    Memorizing & Pronouncing

    Tip on Memorizing

    • When you use hiragana alphabet charts to memorize the Japanese alphabet, the hiragana characters you're learning are paired with the phonetics. Use the chart to translate the Japanese vocabulary words you're learning from the hiragana to the phonetics, so as to memorize the hiragana.

     

    • You'll come to associate the hiragana characters with the phonetics and memorize your Japanese vocabulary words. Hit two birds with one stone!

    Tips on Pronouncing

    You don’t have to repeat after a computer AI to learn how to pronounce all the characters in the hiragana alphabet. Reference the song every time you need to remind yourself how to pronounce か as Ka, for example; the need to remind yourself will decrease until you’ve memorized how to pronounce all the characters!

    Tips on Memorizing

    • When you use Japanese learning apps to memorize Japanese vocabulary, the words you're learning are paired together with an image. You'll come to associate the hiragana for the word with the picture, so every time you see the vocabulary word, you'll recall the picture paired with it.

     

    • If it was the Japanese vocabulary word for book, for example, then when you see the hiragana for the word book, you'll recall a picture of a book.

    Tips on Pronouncing

    • Japanese learning apps are a great tool for you to learn how to pronounce vocabulary words for Japanese. If you want to learn about the pronounce words in the Japanese language, though, while being entertained, then try watching Japanese dramas with subtitles to supplement your studies.

     

    • Watching Japanese dramas will allow you to become accustomed to the vocal inflections and speech mannerisms of the Japanese language.
