Learn Japanese in a breeze

s Japanese Language Resources Guide It’s been about a month since we launched our “Japanese Resources Page” – on it we say things like “blah-didy-blah japanese resource this that etc” but we thought it would be fun for you guys if we just put our money where our mouths are. Not all the resources on the Japanese Resources page are free (some of them are, though, and they’re awesome), so we thought we’d give you some of the paid ones using cash from our very own Scrooge McDuck gold coin swimming pools (that way you don’t have to). We have a lot of cool resources to give away, too. How To Win (It’s Suspiciously Easy) On our Japanese Resources page, we have “recommend” buttons. They look like this: The cool thing about these is that they’re linked to Facebook, meaning only real people can “recommend” something. We’re greedy fugus over here, though, so we want to bribe you to give some recommendations on this page (if you haven’t already). Make sure you have a Facebook account (big sorries if you don’t!)

Trouver un correspondant japonais ou échanger en japonais - Shinmanga : blog sur le manga et le japon noter cet article : jeudi 18 juin 2009, par Shinmanga Après avoir passé des milliers d’heures sur vos kanjis ainsi qu’à tenter de maitriser la grammaire japonaise et du vocabulaire ; Après avoir emmagasiné des milliers d’heures d’anime en portant une attention particulière au vocable employé, arrive le moment sans doute le plus frustrant en japonais : parler japonais.

La vieille méthode du correspondant japonais… Souvenez vous de votre petit correspondant anglais avec qui vous avez tout au plus partagé une semaine de votre vie et échangé quelques lettres écrites dans un anglais déplorable.

AJATT: All Japanese All The Time Les fiches d'apprentissage que j'utilise [en anglais] After 2 months of planning and composition (okay, so I did procrastinate quite a bit), I now understand how Moses felt when he descended Mount Sinai with the holy tablets. Behold, Nihonshock’s newly revised and much improved Japanese cheat sheet! This is a “cheat sheet” for the Japanese language. It is an attempt to condense and organize as many of the basic elements of the language onto one sheet of paper as possible. How do I use it? The intended use of this document is for you to download it, print it on two sides of one sheet of paper and keep it wherever you need it (in your Japanese textbook, on your desk, in your pocket, etc). It’s possible to keep the cheat sheet on your computer, but it won’t be anywhere near as handy or portable as a printed version, and you’ll need to do quite a bit of scrolling and zooming because of the small font size. What information is inside? Page 1 Page 2 Who is this for? This document will be most useful for beginner to intermediate Japanese learners.
