You want to study Japanese, but do the writing systems look overwhelming? 

The three types of characters used in Japanese are: Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji.

Looking at these unique characters, do you feel "It looks so hard! I'll never be able to remember them!”?

Don't worry!

When you first start, just looking at the characters will make you feel anxious.
But once you get used to them a little, they become really simple.
Japanese grammar and pronunciation are not so hard, so once you remember the characters, learning becomes much easier.

How do you get used to the characters?

Well, I designed this course to take care of that problem.

In this course, you learn the same characters over and over again in various ways, helping them sink in quickly.

First, you watch a video on how to write the character, then you guess the hiragana on an animated quiz or read it aloud with a word quiz.

After that, you review it again with an on-line, multiple-choice quiz.

Then, practice again by writing them on the drill sheet.

How do you know if your characters are written properly?

With this course, your characters written on the drill sheet will be checked by your Japanese teacher!

Are you worried about keeping it up?

The weekly "Study-Support" email will remind you what to study and in which order.
You just have to follow the instructions.

To allow to you study at your own comfortable pace, we will send about 10-15 characters lessons/week.

Nobody gets frustrated with this course!

There's no other course like this one.

If you study the characters in this way, you will master Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji by the end.

Learning Hiragana and Katakana seemed so difficult so I kept putting it off, but finally I decided it was time to get serious and study so I took this course.

The best thing about the course is that if you study all the way through the curriculum, you will see the same characters again and again, so by the time you get to the end, you retain them surprisingly well. There is nothing special to the teaching method except repetition, but it's hard for me to do on my own so I was glad to have this course.

I like having a variety of study methods, not just writing characters over and over, but using videos to hear the different pronunciations, taking on-line quizzes and using flashcards.

And kanji...

Japanese kanji have multiple pronunciations, so you have to study repeatedly. It’s really a hassle on my own, but this course allowed me to practice each kanji at least 5 times.

The same pronunciation is studied in different ways, so I never got bored.

It’s a great course!

Before you enroll...

Let me briefly explain the Japanese characters.
There are three types of characters in Japanese


「にほんご」"nihongo" in hiragana

Hiragana is the most basic of the Japanese character systems, with a total of 46 letters. 


「ニホンゴ」"nihongo" in katakana

Katakana is used to write words from foreign languages.

It looks simpler than hiragana and is a little more pointy in shape.

Kanji (Chinese characters)

「日本語」"nihongo" in kanji

In Japanese, the word stem for nouns, adjectives, and verbs are mostly written with kanji.

Japanese has simple pronunciation and many homonyms, so kanji actually make it easier to read and understand than just using hiragana. 

In this course, you will learn the all basic Japanese charachers, Hiragana, Katakana, and basic 108 Kanji.

I learned hiragana katakana kanji by watching the videos and taking the quizzes in my spare time.

When I had time to sit down and study, I would practice writing it in the exercise book.

The videos, exercise book, and flashcards are all included in the course set, and I studied them at different times, but when the same character or word came up, I felt like "hey, I already know this" and that made me happy.

I want to go to Japan soon so I can practice reading Japanese around town!

Thanks to this course I can now read and write characters that I previously thought were impossibly difficult.

I was really worried if I could learn to write properly, but the teacher corrected my characters and commended the ones done well, so I gained a lot of confidence.

It's going to be easier to memorize Kanji from now on!

You only need to remember one kanji per day, so it’s easy to keep going.

I used to get really frustrated trying to study about 10 kanji at a time and would give up, but this worked for me, I finished them all.

It's really convenient because the weekly emails remind you what to study, so it’s all there even if I forget. After watching the review videos and taking the quizzes many times, I learned most of the kanji.

The "typing Japanese sentence" homework is also fun, it makes me feel like I'm starting to conquer Japanese.
