Any new ways of learning Japanese?
Even though I have been learning Japanese for about half a year, I feel that I'm not learning enough. Does anybody have any advice or any websites where I can practice/learn my Japanese? Any comments are appreciated, I hope you all have an amazing day.
The old ways are the best.
Study hard and study often. Use a variety of resources and find what works best for you. Practice what you have learned so you won't forget it and keep pushing into new territory, slowly but steadily.
And if you are looking for new ways to study, here is a large list of free or partially free resources available on the web:
Japanesepod101 has videos from Absolute Beginner to Intermediate to Advanced. A basic subscription doesn't cost very much, and you get access to all the videos.
I have heard of it before but never actually tried it out. Thank you, I will search it up.
- watch anime or dramas with japanese subtitles
- put sentences you don't fully understand into anki, with any new vocab and grammar broken down on the back
- do your reviews daily
- watch your japanese improve faster than ever
it's all about getting lots of input and learning as many new things as you can through that. textbooks are not for people who are ready to become fluent. they're only for beginners and will only take you so far. you need real input from real japanese media to reach a level of fluency. not sure what level you are though.
Go to your Local Japanese-run Buddhist Temple and ask for a Japanese teacher. That is what I did. It worked for me.
