Nihongonomori – JLPT N3 Grammar Videos

nahcirn sent me a link to these videos which are too good not to share, though they do require a certain level of Japanese proficiency before they will be of use.

Basically, Kento Sensei explains grammar points.  In the first video, for example, he goes over -だらけ, -おかげ and -せい, and there are 38 videos total in this series, so he covers a lot of ground.

The trick is that the video are entirely in Japanese.  (Well, not entirely.  There may have been as many as 5 or 6 English words in the first one.)  They are subtitled, also in Japanese, so that can help if you get really stuck.

I won’t lie to you – they are really useful, but they take some effort.  The first one at least was excellent – I have watched it all the way through once and started watching it a second time.  I’m learning/reviewing grammar and getting listening practice, and it’s hard to beat that.

I provided the link above, but here’s the first one:

Keep sharing the good stuff.  We’re all in this together!

  1. At the beginning of the year I bought this book “A Handbook of Japanese Grammar Patterns for Teachers and Learners” ( It really saved me to better understand grammar points as one of my learning book only gives 3 example sentences in Japanese with NO explanation. Good luck understanding how to use that grammar…
    For each grammar point the handbook gives usually 2 to 6 example sentences along with their translation in English, and an explanation of how and when to use this grammar point.
