Yet another Japanese thread

Postby Akimos » Sat Jan 02, 2010 3:32 pm


So, i'm past the "Put to shame by a preschooler" level. I can pronounce correctly, know a few Kanji and can have a basic conversation.

I'm struggling at the "Verbally annihilated by a first grader" level. Mostly because I haven't got a good method for learning Kanji and Vocab. My grammer's mostly fine, but I struggle with those the most.

Anybody willing to lend a hand?

Moved to Tutorials.

Repetition, repetition, repetion. :D I find this the best way to learn Japanese vocabulary. Depending how well you learn (by hearing, by doing(writing/speaking), by seeing, etc.), you can use CDs, flashcards, and writing/speaking the words over and over again until you learn them. ^_^

Good luck.

For Kanji (and Kana) look up, 'Kanji(and/or Kana) de Manga' It's a great little book series that gives you definitions, stroke order, what context it'll be used in, and it has pictures!!
