Background Way back in 1991 I began to experiment with handling Japanese text in computer files, and decided to try writing a dictionary search program in Turbo C under DOS, which used a simple dictionary file contained in the MOKE (Mark's Own Kanji Editor) package. To make this program more useful, I began to expand the file itself.

Japan Info Swap » Free eBooks on Living in Japan Living in Japan may be a temporary stop on your career journey, a permanent home, or something in between.

Japan offers many wonderful opportunities, but also new obstacles and issues you may not expect. Living in Japan may not be all picnics and roses, but the troublesome and mundane parts of the experience will no doubt offer you the greatest opportunities to learn and grow. Whatever your background or Japanese experience has been or will be, we believe our collection of free eBooks and destination guides will add value to your time here and provide provocative insights to life as an expat in Japan.

JLPT Level N5 Resources - Free vocabulary lists and MP3 sound files Products I think are awesome: If you're a bit shakey on your hiragana and katakana, try writing them over and over until they stick. If you're very shakey or don't know any yet - maybe try these kana flashcards or make your own. I didn't use these kana flashcards, but tried to invent stories about the kana to remember them. (e.g. TextFugu Online Japanese Textbook Teaching reading IS rocket science - Louisa Moats Before you start reading, and before you start writing, you’re going to learn how to pronounce nearly all the “sounds” of the Japanese language. If you can’t pronounce anything, you won’t be able to read or write anything either. If you learn how to pronounce something while you’re learning to read and write it, you’ll run into overload. By learning pronunciation first (without knowing how to read or write anything) you’re essentially breaking the process up into smaller pieces and ultimately saving yourself a lot of time. In order to learn the pronunciation, though, we’re going to use hiragana.
Manyoshu Best 100 Compiler's note: Man'yoshu ("Collection of Ten Thousand Leaves") is the earliest extant collection of Japanese poetry. Most of its 4,516 numbered waka (or "Japanese poems") in 20 volumes were written in the 7th and 8th centuries. For a brief description of the Man'yōshū, see: Manyoshu in WIKIPEDIA, The Free Encylopedia. An electronic online version of the complete text of the Man'yōshū is available at Japanese Text Initiative. The one hundred poems presented in these web pages are what I consider some of the best pieces in this classical anthology. For each poem, I have provided brief Explanations (解説) which are rather elementary guides, in both English and Japanese, for intermediate- and advanced-level (non-Japanese-speaking) students for interpreting these ancient poems, some of which are difficult even for today's educated Japanese.

10 Awesome Japanese Dictionary Apps to Read and Define Anything Two tourists and a German Shepard walk into Ueno Park. Where’s the punchline? There isn’t one, expect for the fact that neither tourist can determine if the sign at the park entrance “犬の出入禁止” (いぬの でいり きんし) reads, “No Dogs Allowed.” At the time, myself and a colleague (the two tourists) didn’t know how to use a kanji dictionary. Besides, who’d lug a dictionary to the park anyway? Neither of us were willing to sacrifice our frisbee or trade up our picnic basket for a two-inch paperweight. Let's Learn Japanese!
