Gratis Global has a massive list of free resources from apps, websites and dictionaries to podcasts, playlists, textbooks, and online classes. :)


Edit: So many people saying Duo. :P While I love Duo, it certainly has its flaws and isn't very thorough in its lessons. It's a good resource but I don't think it's a good idea to ever just depend on one single place for all your information. Diversifying is a great thing to do as every one will teach it a bit differently. Seeing the material from many different angles definitely helps create a better understanding of various concepts, especially for a language as complex as Japanese.

Some I use:
For all things grammar related:
Tae Kim's Grammar Guide
Pomax Intro to Japanese

Good resources:
Tofugu
PuniPuni
TanoshiiJapanese

Subscription-based with free versions:
Japanesepod101
NihongoMaster
Bunpro

Dictionaries:
Jisho
Tangorin

Kanji:
Kanji Garden
Wanikani
Japanesepod101

Quiz-based similar to Duo:
Memrise
Renshuu
Linguti
Clozemaster

Youtube:
Japanese Ammo with Misa
Japanesepod101
Japanese from Zero

Flashcards:
Anki
Tinycards

An excellent app similar to Duo but catered more towards asian languages is Lingodeer. It is unfortunately not free anymore but a lifetime membership isn't too expensive.

Lingodeer is partly free. Only the more advanced part of the course is paid.

Unfortunately Kanji Garden is only free for a trial period, then the usage becomes very limited.

I want to say that quizlet is somewhat better than duolingo's tinycards. Simply because it has printable test, better layout, classes and folders, printable cards, 7 ways to use the cards. But I think tinycards is better for learning certain things like hiragan because a picture can be used on the back making mnemonic memorization easy. Like this one https://tinycards.duolingo.com/decks/v9Cv1Ky/hiragana-sound-mnemonics

Also, try using a few youtube channels and go through their lessons in order. Pick channels that are more recent and have the most comments.

also, a online japanese dictionary like jisho.org is great.

also, a cultarel website like tofugo.com is excellent!

Remember Duolingo is best as a tool in a language learner toolbox, not the only tool. (Certainly one of the best though)

In my opinion, Duo is the best language learning website (even for Japanese) but there is another one I know called memrise or something like that.

A recent discovery, good for kanji: https://www.kanshudo.com/

Lentil.com is also a very good site to start out with Hiragana / Katakana learning... helped me to master both in 5 days.
