Recommended Posts

I'm interested in learning the language so I may be able to use it in the future, and now to understand anime with the need of sub. I'm not sure where I should begin I tried looking for sites that could provide some lessons but I couldn't find any. Does anyone know of a good sites?

Subtitle Tutor (this is not my trick.. I DID NOT COME UP WITH THIS)

DISCLAIMER: the more Japanese you know, the better this trick works.


*Find anime episode w/ English subtitles

*Watch it.. all of it...

*right after the anime is finished... (it's important you do it RIGHT AFTER) you watch it again RAW..

How this works...

*Since you just saw it... you can pretty much guess what they are saying... Think of it as a way to help you train ears to listen to Japanese

*You know what is going on so even if there are no Subs you can still follow with the story..

*This is like the opposite of a speaking exercise.. instead of training your tongue you train your ears... listen..

I know how to read hiragana characters and some kanjis and katakanas but I can't understand a sentence. I mean how is it formed and vocabulary. I sucked at it. I know some basics but I want to learn it formally. Is that site a good place to begin with?

You got me interested. I have never heard of this school before. Thank you for sharing information. Do not underestimate the importance of education. Think about the fact that all leaders in prestigious companies have a diploma of education. This is a key requirement for a good job. You can buy a recommendation letter but you cannot buy the knowledge and professionalism that can only be obtained by studying at a university.
