Welcome to the start of your long but rewarding journey to learning the Japanese language. Many of your fellow adventures do not make it to the promise land of fluent Japanese, but let us guide you with tips and advice based on our experience in moving from beginner to intermediate level Japanese.
Learning Japanese can be hard but based on our years of experience and research we have uncovered many ways which we cover in our series on how to learn Japanese for you. This article is one sub-section of that series.
At this very moment, you probably have a notebook and a pencil ready to start learning Japanese, but then you realize something. “What do I do exactly?” You’ve probably been looking for a study method but then thought “Which one’s the right one?”, don’t worry! This is normal. Language learning is a long rewarding journey but it wouldn’t be a surprise if you didn’t know where to start. After all, Japanese is a daunting language to learn and many people tend to give up easily after their first month (or even their first week).
In this article, I will be explaining, not only about a study method that will be very useful for learning Japanese, but I will also be talking about how to maximize your time efficiently. How to take it bit by bit rather than all in one go. This is also useful for those who are aiming for JLPT (or any form of proficiency test). But, the most important thing is to have fun, of course! Before I get started though, there are a few things that I would like to clarify.
