The key to studying

Learning Tips 1. Clarify your goals for learning Japanese.

Set your learning goals as small as you can achieve them. How much will you master by when? Let’s plan.


Learning Tips 2. Make it a habit to practice Japanese a little every day.

It is very difficult to study alone. Stay motivated by studying with a good teacher, tutor, or friend.


Learning Tips 3. Enjoy the process of improving.

Look forward to the adventure of meeting new people and cultures. Language is not an academic discipline.



Some facts about the Japanese​

Japanese pronunciation is simple fairly and the grammar is not as complicated as in other languages.

In Japanese conversation, you don’t have to say the subject of a sentence every time, and you can talk with just verb sentences and adjective sentences.
Therefore, it is said in this sense that Japanese is easier to learn than other languages.
Japanese people often use honorifics(forms of politeness in language) and gender words depending on the position of the speaker, in society and often prefer specific ambiguous expressions and unclear answers.
This is one of the reasons why the texts in the textbooks are different from the words actually spoken.

  • Make it a habit to study.
  • Output what you have learned.
