What people are saying

so far

This is quite easy, but in order to do N5 I need more practice with the alphabets so doing the 2 courses together is working so far.

It has been quite enjoyable so far.

So far I am really enjoying the course, and look forward to seeing how well I can speak Japanese at the end.

Just finished lesson 1 and it has been good for me so far.

good Good so far The music is the greatest!

So far the course is very good, I've been trying to learn from books, so it don't have the pronunciation so this course is very nice so far.

It's amazing, I've learnt very quickly and very precisely on this course so far..

So far, so good.

I've found it helpful so far that it's not moving TOO fast.

Enhorabuena :) Pretty effective so far for learning most of the hiragana but each lesson has a section where you're supposed to write down what the instructor dictates.

This is most apparently so far in lesson 3 "na tsu i mu".

So far I've memorized my first hiraganas!!

Nice and easy so far.

Slowly but surely you will benefit from this course So far, I am enjoying this course a ton.

hiragana and katakana

Good and easy way to learn hiragana and katakana alphabets.

It helped me a lot with Hiragana and Katakana learning.

As a former sign writer and fine artist I love writing Japanese...both Hiragana and Katakana have different styles and it is a pleasure to begin writing them.

Could do with giving ways to memorise the hiragana and katakana symbols.

Now i am able to spell and read Hiragana and Katakana.

This course helped me solidify how hiragana and katakana are written and helped clarify the meaning of some basic phrases This course is very helpful.

Great program for learning Hiragana and Katakana.

In case of memorization of the Hiragana and Katakana, it’s good to have a textbook for that, I had one that I found on reddit, I started to train on many types of fonts and did just fine on that.

I’ve been watching a 24h live channel on Youtube, it’s a weather Channel in Japan called SOLiVE24, so far I’ve managed to even learn new words and expressions, and because it has many kinds of information on the screen, you can improve how you read hiragana and katakana!

I am missing more dictation practise though, as recalling characters from the top of my head is the hardest part about learning Hiragana and Katakana.

But, obviously, it requires application and above all the exercitation in writing Hiragana and Katakana's signs.

Really enjoyed this course and I feel like I have picked up hiragana and katakana quite quickly, but of course, need some more practice to recall them quickly.

The instructor goes through each row of hiragana and katakana, in a very thorough manner, then covers a wide array of different greetings and sayings that can be used in common conversation.

Also learning the Katakana was a bit odd to me as they were using the same words for Hiragana and Katakana.

easy to follow

An excellent course for me to study and learn Japanese So far this course is easy to follow and understand.

I am enjoying learning both the writing and speaking at the same time Very easy to follow along with video.

很可以喔~~ well explained :) Easy to follow!

een algemene inleiding over hoe de taal ineen steekt zou handig zijn als achtergrondinformatie Each lesson is concised and easy to follow.

Ando-sensei speaks very clearly, and the English subtitles are a translation of the meaning, instead of a literal translation, which makes it very easy to follow along.

And it's really easy to follow.

This course is organized quite well and is easy to follow.

The teaching style is concise and easy to follow.

Easy to follow and understand!

really enjoyable, and going at a stern steady phase, making it easy to follow.

Pace is slow and instruction is easy to follow.

its a little hard to follow when it comes to the combinations good Easy to follow I appreciate the pace, directions, and the clarity of the pronunciation and writing lessons.

Very clear and easy to follow.

She goes at the right pace for immediate beginners Easy to follow along It seems very slow and so far.

for beginners

Is good for beginners and is easy to understand.

I understand her explanation and good materials for beginners as well.

Apart from that it is a wonderful course for beginners.

Had to refer to other videos on youtube, or websites to get further information that I find essential for beginners.

definitivamente es un gran curso muy practico para principiantes que quieren iniciar con el idioma japones It was a really great class for beginners like myself.

I recommend pairing this with Tuttle Publishing's: "Japanese Hiragana & Katakana for Beginners".

But greeting conversations may be too fast for beginners.

Highly recommended for beginners.

Good for beginners and people who need to fully learn the pronunciation but it was often a bit too slow (which is to help people pronounce words, etc).

Perfect Course for beginners who want to start learning the Japanese language from the beginning.

But even as someone who still has some familiarity, this is fantastic for beginners.

So far this is a great learning tool, it goes at a good pace for beginners and has a lot of extra information for those looking to peer ahead somewhat.

very thorough with the way of writing which is good for beginners looking to learn Japanese efficiently It's quite clear, the presenter is good, and I like the mouth closeup - helps to make unfamiliar sounds easier.

thanks for this amazing course Just perfect for beginners like me!

each lesson

Slowly introducing vocabs in each lesson.

I suggest to study all the hiragana after each lesson or you can just go ahead and finish the course and practise afterwards.

Practice work within each episode and at the end of each lesson is useful.

feel like

Yes, I feel like the slow pace provides time to actually learn and remember each thing taught.

need to explain more when we need to use katakana and when hiragana, also in some practice they ask for syllable that hasnt been shown yet I like the way they teach..very clear I'm having a really hard time learning Japanese, I feel like all we go over is how to write the letters.

I feel like I'm making progress already!
