I really recommend this textbook published this year by the Japan Foundation Japanese-Language Institute. It is called聽銇勩倣銇┿倞 鐢熸椿銇棩鏈獮, they have the pdf for you to download and the mp3 files for you to hear the dialogues. I would recommend this book for intermediate beginners to advanced beginners. It requires you to know hiragana, katakana and some kanji because there is no romaji and no introduction about hiragana/katakana.聽The lessons are easy to follow along and the pictures are cute and helpful. I like that all kanji have furigana so I can always follow along.聽

Some main points of the book are:

  • You learn new vocabulary with pictures
  • You answer questions and practice recalling information聽
  • You learn to conjugate words
  • You learn about polite styles of talking versus casual
  • You get to improve your listening skills through the dialogues聽
  • You get to practice shadowing the dialogues as well

All lessons can be downloaded separately or you can download the whole book at once. The dialogue audio files can also be downloaded separately by lesson. Currently, they have two textbooks so please check them out!

Here is the link to the website:聽

If you have any questions, ask me~ Happy learning馃ぉ

I made a note for myself and also for my students, next morning. I鈥檓 teaching a group of notaries to prepare for their English tests. They鈥檙e planning to take the doctoral degree as soon as possible.

I鈥檓 so inspired by their high motivation to understand and speak English better. One of interesting reasons comes from a young lady who wants to teach her future kids to speak English, besides her education target. It鈥檚 such a sweet and sincere, I鈥檇 say.

And I keep telling everyone who learns English with me… that learning languages always opens the door where we can get into the world of make believe.

Don鈥檛 you think so?

Are you practicing your target language now?

Yup… tie your hair, grab your brunch then start gaming haha…

I like learning language through games, but not gamification. I mean, language learning apps such duolingo, drops, etc. could help me get used to my target language.

I read an article about habitual and repetitive learning, I feel it鈥檚 true since I experience it myself. Frankly, I don鈥檛 devote too much time on my language learning but I plan to do it everyday. Maybe 20-30 minutes is quite enough for me then I鈥檒l choose different materials on each session. You know, I鈥檓 kinda easily getting bored of everything *lol ^^V

I鈥檓 practicing Spanish and Japanese by making them as habits. I speak in Spanish and Japanese in every opportunity (even when I鈥檓 talking to myself) and use any phrases that I鈥檝e known in fit situations… like saying 鈥渂uenas di谩s鈥 to myself when I wake up. As simple as it is… or is it way too simple? Haha…

Do you make your target language as a habit, too?

How do you practicing?

Hi! Even it鈥檚 so late, I just wanna say Happy International Literacy Day!

Literacy opens the door to knowledge while languages unlock the gate to the world.

Well, learning languages has inspired me a lot. And I even recognised that human speaks not only by words, but also by the tones and colours. For me, music and colours are the resources of literacy, too.

How about you? Any book or something that got you hooked up?

Here鈥檚 my poem to celebrate International Literacy Day with you!

Buenas noches!馃寵馃挙

Buenas tardes 馃尀

Yesterday I鈥檝e watched a video resource telling about the differences between language learning and language acquisition and so why some methods don鈥檛 work for language learners.

It says we need meaningful resources as our input, whether it鈥檚 understandable or not at first. As instance, watching tv series in our target language using its subtitle then trying to figure out the message in our target language (without dictionary).

Besides that, from the meaningful resources we can also listen the natural speaks so we learn the pronunciation and how to speak naturally by imitating the speakers based on our level, maybe just one, two or three words at first, it鈥檚 all right.

I found it鈥檚 logical, as when we were a lil鈥 kids, we weren鈥檛 taught by many flash cards to learn the mother tongue. We learnt by listening and mimicking our mother language then we got the message by looking at the real world.

Thus, the important thing is we should look for the meaningful resources for our target language. Yup or Nah? Do you wanna share any ideas?

do you have any suggestions on the best workbooks that can help in learning, writing, and talking in Japanese? more the one book is fine, thank you :)

Books & Links to guide your journey in learning Japanese language!


Note: Each set of books is for specific purpose.As a tip, it鈥檚 better to focus on one skill at a time. It鈥檚 recommended to work on grammar before focusing on learning kanji. With that in mind, here we go!:


Basic stuff!
Easily learn Hiragana
Easily learn Katakana
Introduction about kanji before you start to learn them


Book set to master basic Japanese (recommended)
TRY! N5 grammar with CD
TRY! N4 grammar with CD
500 Questions for N5-N4 Practice + grammar review
Dictionary for Basic Japanese Grammar

If you鈥檙e unsure of which book to buy, this set is all you need. The amount of time require to finish this set would be around 4 - 8 months. The dictionary is complimentary but so worth to have!

One step further:
TRY! N3 grammar with CD
500 Questions for N3 Practice + grammar review
>> Check out the details of this book set


Hone Kanji reading skills
Books to learn & practice kanji
>> How to use the book

Indepth Kanji study
Book to guide you to remember kanji easily with mnemonics (for beginners)
Kanji dictionary learners (to guide you on each kanji usage)


Japanese Conversation/Speaking skill
鈥 Basic survival conversation & situation
鈥> this book teach basic survival grammar!

Learn Japanese with conversation (shadowing technique)
>> Learn more about both books here


Reading practice material
Ghibli鈥檚 Story book - [Full post]
Easy to read Japanese Manga聽 - [Full post]
Bilingual Doraemon manga聽 - [Full post]
>> More books & review here


Another set to master basic Japanese grammar:

Note: It鈥檚 not effective to have a different set of similar book, just pick the set you like the most. If you like Genki better, get a genki set and so on~

If you ask our opinion, Genki is easier with a more detailed English explanation but explained from English point of view.

While minna no nihongo is a very immersive study book but will confuse and discourage some people.

Our recommendation Try set above is somewhere in the middle. It鈥檚 immersive but not to confusing and each grammar is explained from Japanese point of view~

Minna no nihongo

Minna no Nihongo Beginners Part 1 book (N5-N4)
Minna no Nihongo Beginners Part 2 book (N5-N4)
Minna no Nihongo set review & links

Genki 1
Genki workbook 1
Genki 2
Genki workbook 2
Answer key for workbook 1&2


Hope this helps! Happy learning 锝★緹鉁多负.銉(*麓鈭`*)锞.鉁多负锞燂健

안녕하세요! I looked through differe resources of conjugating present korean verbs and I'm still a bit confused. My book presented verbs w an ending like: -자 , -고, etc; but i keep seeing endings like: -어(요) -어/아 요, etc. So do i add the ending -고 and then -어/아 요? I'm sorry if this is confusing.

Hello anon! I was kind of confused with what you鈥檙e asking, but now I understand so hopefully you understand, too!聽

I think it would really help if you checked out my conjugationblog. It will show you the most basic ways to conjugate. It would also be good if you check out my basic conjugation cheat sheet on my WordPress. I will make more conjugation endings on my blog soon, but in short:

-鞛 = let鈥檚聽鈥榅鈥

-瓿 = and聽鈥榅鈥

For now, if you鈥檙e a beginner, just worry yourself with the basic conjugation and get that 100% down. Happy Learning :)

The name 鈥淏ayer鈥 may be synonymous with Aspirin, but did you know that both Bayer and Aspirin come from Germany? The multinational pharmaceutical company was founded in 1863, but its trademark product, Aspirin, wasn鈥檛 developed until 1897. A team of scientists worked together to develop this drug, which today is used to treat everything from pain to fever to blood clots.

The active ingredient in Aspirin is Salicylic acid, which is derived from willow bark. The curative properties of salicylic acid had been documented well before aspirin hit the market, but the side effects 鈥 stomach pains and digestive problems 鈥 often outweighed the benefits of using the drug. The Bayer team altered the original compound to create acetylsalicylic acid, which had the same effects without the drawbacks. The common name for the drug, Aspirin, is derived from the German word for Salicylic Acid, Spirs盲ure. Acetylsalicylic acid became the bread and butter for Bayer, as it remains today. In 2014, the company posted 42 billion euros in sales!

At Hakkenden, a yakitori chain, I saw this drink with a good name for language learners.

銇傘倞銇濄亞銇с仾銇嬨仯銇 鐒笺亶槌ャ伄鐩告
It seems like it would exist, but it doesn鈥檛 鈥 the yakitori partner
A special cocktail that鈥檚 perfect for yakitori

銇傘倞銇濄亞 is a verb stem + 銇濄亞 construction: the verb 銇傘倠 [to exist] plus聽鈥渋s likely to.鈥 銇亱銇c仧, of course, is the negative past tense of 銇傘倠, and the two concepts are linked together with 銇.

銇傘倞銇濄亞銇с仾銇嬨仯銇 means something like聽鈥測ou鈥檇 think it鈥檚 out there, but somehow nobody鈥檚 come up with it yet.鈥 Literally translated,聽鈥渋t鈥檚 likely to exist, but it hasn鈥檛 existed yet.鈥 Hell of a way to sell a cocktail specific for a chicken skewers.

That鈥檚 the main interesting thing here, for me, but I do also like 鐩告銆愩亗銇勩伡銇嗐, which means partner or pal. Granted, I don鈥檛 hear it all that much in real life, but you see it a lot in subtitles of Hollywood movies. (I think I first learned it from Toy Story. When Woody says聽鈥淵ou鈥檙e my favorite deputy,鈥 it鈥檚 subbed as銆屻亗銈撱仧銇亢銇浉妫掋仩銇溿嶁漎er my partner!鈥)

And, OH! Before I forget, what, you ask, was the mythical, illusory, never-before-conceived-of cocktail perfect for the humble yakitori? I鈥檓 so glad you asked.

It was gin, seltzer, and a wedge of lemon. Nobody鈥檚 ever drank that before, huh? If these drinks get any more avant-garde, I don鈥檛 know how I鈥檒l cope.
