I'm curious (please help if you can)
Are there any other good language sites that you've been learning things on? I've been wanting to learn Japanese and Korean but they don't have them on Duolingo yet. And I've been trying to practice reading them on Memrise by taking alphabet/kanji and pronunciation lessons, and now I'm thinking that if I get good enough at them in time I might start contributing to courses with these languages, for English and Spanish speakers. Are there any good sites you can point me to that have Japanese and/or Korean lessons, as well as other languages (especially Spanish since I am becoming most fluent in that and I need more practice)? Thanks.
I'm doing the Rosetta Stone Japanese course, because I got it really cheap. IF your library has it, I'd recommend that.
I would also suggest MONDLY for extra practice. You needed a subscription to unlock everything, but if you type in "MONDLY" for the coupon code, you get it for free.
You can also do the English for Japanese course. that is what a lot of people do.
I wasn't fond of the Mondly course, myself. I abandoned it right after starting it. I recommend Tae Kim's Japanese grammar guide and Tofugu sensei's multitude of resources for Japanese. :)
I'll make a note of that, thank you! I need a lot of help with Japanese grammar because that is the part I get stuck on.
If you can, I recommend the Genki textbook series along with their workbooks. It is very solid on the grammar. The 2012 edition is a vast improvement on the 2009 edition. (I have both).
i find Mondly better if you already are semi fluent in a language. I use it for Spanish review, but hate it for actually learning a language from scratch.
At that level though, I'd recommend taking the English for Japanese speakers course on Duolingo.
Very true. That would be a better idea. I use it to keep my Spanish sharp. It all depends on your learning style.
I would do the English for Japanese course but I don't have a Japanese keyboard at the moment. :/ It would just be more of a hassle for me. I'll try out MONDLY, though, thanks. :)
I'll check it out, thank you! :) I need a lot more work on katakana.
