I am learning Japanese using the Hacking Japanese Supercourse. I started in mid June of 2015. The purpose of this blog is to highlight some things that might help other Japanese learners and to keep myself motivated as I continue this crazy journey. There are reviews of learning tools, some easy reading posts for people who want to practice their Japanese reading skills and various other things that seemed like a good idea at the time.
The course I am following is divided into various parts:
Phase 1 is assembling a bunch of useful tools. I do have some reviews of learning tools on the blog, but I don’t really address this part of the journey.
Phase 2 is to learn the 2,200 daily use Kanji. I started this blog when I was part of the way through this phase. If you want to read about that, check out the Learn the Kanji posts under categories. Hint: it isn’t as hard as you think it will be.
Phase 3 is about vocabulary, grammar, listening and, of course, speaking. That’s where I am now. If you want to read about that, check out the Phase 3 posts under categories.
And, if you don’t want to read any of that, well, here’s some music for you:
I am learning Japanese to stop the old brain from getting soft and because it would be pretty cool to watch the movies of Akira Kurosawa and some of the Studio Ghibli films without subtitles.
If I can do it, so can you.
