THE LEARNING PROCESS
First that should be done is to learn how to read. Then we should understand grammar. Most people dislike it, but grammar is like a map for a traveller. It is a pack of instructions for our brain and helps us to know how to operate the words and different parts of speach. It is not complex at all. The most difficult on the wonderful adventure way to the learning foreign languages usually is vocabulary. The more words you know the more you can tell. Playing this game you will memorize dozens of Japanese words almost accidentally!
SOME SECRETS FOR YOU
SECRET #1. I will tell you one secret! Yes, for the first sight the fact that Japanese language has such a complex system – two alphabets and kanji – is frightening. But! It is just for the first sight. The core concept is the assignment of the alphabets. Katakana, one of Japanese alphabets, is used for foreign, taken mostly from English language words. It is a widespread knowledge. But seldom taken into consideration. The secret is that if you speak English – you half speak Japanese! That is why katakana is so helpful and Japanese easy!
For example, in Japanese language “pidza” means “pizza”. “Koohi” means “coffee”. Yes, sounds a bit strange but not difficult to get used to and to understand!
So after learning how to read katakana it will become easy for you to understand a lot of Japanese words and read road signs, trade names! For English speaking people Japanese is half-known already.
SECRET # 2. May be you have heard about Japanese Language Proficiency Test. Sounds serious, doesn't it? So what the point is. JLPT has 5 levels and the requirements for the highest one is 2000 kanji! Yes, kanji are more complex than our words, but any way let ask ourselves if it is really difficult to learn 2000 words, symbols? No. And this is the level of an ordinary Japanese person! Any other kanji will be underwritten with hiragana, so it is easy!
SECRET # 3. To master any skill everyday practising is required. Just 15 minutes a day is enough for progress! But everyday!
