Hey guys

Haven't been posting much lately! Been super busy making a Comprehensive Japanese Hiragana & Katakana course!

Just launched it recently and already have over 1000 students from all over the world (78 different countries! sorry it's really exciting for me! :D)!

So I wanted to invite people from my favorite linguistics forum as well!

Together with my friend (native speaker), we've made a full blown course with about 5 hours of content, teaching both Hiragana and Katakana and some Kanji as well!

You'll be getting the exact instructions on how to write the characters PLUS practice sheets you can print out and use for your practice (Riko-chan, the native speaker prepared those, she used to do calligraphy so they came out really well!)

Also over 300 vocab building words are included so you can practice the characters in context!

When I was doing research for this course I encountered some really interesting stuff about how Hiragana and Katakana came to be, stuff you won't find in textbooks!

I made a video about it:

You'll find more info about the course there, as well as a discount coupon ! ;)

Please note that the coupons are limited so don't wait around if you're interested!

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

      1. What is Kanji?
      Kanji is the kanji used in the Japanese writing system along with Hiragana and Katakana. Learning Kanji for beginner that Japanese people are using now include Chinese characters imported from China and Chinese characters created by the Japanese.

      2. Why learn Kanji?
      Japanese has many homophones but different meanings, it is necessary to rely on Kanji to determine the meaning of the word.
      Currently in Japan, the names of stations, shops or signs are mostly written in Kanji, so learning Kanji is essential if you want to travel or live in Japan.
      Studying well Kanji, you will be able to read and translate Japanese documents well, because Kanji accounts for 70% of the content of Japanese articles or documents.
      Although necessary, learning kanji for beginners is not easy at all. Today, I would like to share some effective ways to learn Kanji drawn by myself after studying Kanji
      3. Learning with software
      If you've ever learned about effective Learning Kanji for beginners methods, you probably already know the flashcard method. I have tried this method before, and from my personal perspective it is quite boring and ineffective for me.
      Instead, I choose to study on the phone, the web is both fun and convenient. If you are proficient in technology, you will easily find effective Kanji learning apps on your phone. If you are not proficient in technology, you can use it directly on the website. When I found out, I know this product is both supported on mobile applications and has a convenient web version that has been researched and built by a team of experts from countries, Asian countries and throughout Asia. u. The most interesting point in this Japanese language learning software is that you can study, entertain and specially take the free trial exam. You are curious, but you can try it right now: Learn Japanese Kanji

      4. Learning and associating
      Since Kanji is a hieroglyph, the way to learn Chinese characters in Japanese is also interesting. Hieroglyphs are words of the ancients seeing things and things and rewriting them, describing them in their own way of thinking and imagination. Therefore, one of the tips for learning Kanji for beginners is to imagine and compare Kanji according to things and phenomena in real life. This way the kanji will be imprinted more deeply in your brain than just learning rote as you normally do. There are quite a few good books to help you supplement your Kanji learning by this association: "Remember the Kanji" by James Heisig or "Kanji Pict-O-Graphix" by Michael Rowley.

      Here, I want to recommend a good Android App to learn and memorize Japanese vocabulary.
      Japanese Vocabulary (N1~N5)
      https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digi.japanesevocabulary&hl=en
      I found that it contains many vocabulary (cover JLPT N5 up to N1) with awesome text UI, and pronunciation is supported.
      The mini game inside the app also helps me in memorizing the newly learned vocabulary.
      No additional money is needed. All the content are completely free!!!
       

       
      Please try it if you are free.

      What is Lingodeer?
      Many of you might be familiar with the app called "Duolingo." Lingodeer is very similar, but alongside the same style of gamified lessons that Duolingo provides: Lingodeer offers professionally made grammar notes on every single skill, features full native audio recordings on every word and sentence, has built in grammar review features, has a global leaderboard (And friends leaderboard) for competition, features video stories at the end of every skill, has built in pronunciation practice (Sentence shadowing capabilities), and features 10 languages to learn (with Italian on the way) taught in 13 languages. The app is available on iOS and Android. 

      If anyone has any questions feel free to ask me (I run their online forums as volunteer work and have followed the app since it was released, I have also completed the first half of Japanese and Korean on the app).
