Learning Japanese… the hard way

It’s been quite a while! I have been busy with extra-curriculars lately, that’s why. One thing I was working on was learning a new language: Nihonggo. And yes, I am an uber-beginner, like close to zero. Fortunately, there are tons of sites online for me to learn from. Honestly, I did have a hard time looking for the best, until my good friend recommended https://www.japanesepod101.comI checked it out, and found a lot of useful tools.


I am currently done with at least 10 lessons out of 60 per season/module. And there are 9 modules each for absolute beginner, beginner, intermediate, and advanced. So imagine how long it would take to finish each. But after listening (or watching, if you prefer) to one audio lesson, I realized it’s not bad. Actually, it’s stuffed with all the relevant phrases one would need to survive daily activities. I am impressed. I continued and went along with the flow of the routine. I cannot say I am conversant yet (way too early for that) but I am definitely getting the hang of it. More practice, for sure, and I’d be better.

Is anyone else learning a new language now? Care to share handy tips & tricks? I’m all for it.

IS IT ??!!??
