How to Impress your Friends With Spoken Japanese Even If You’re a Total Beginner

How To Impress Your Friends With Spoken Japanese Even If You’re A Total Beginner

Yes, you really can speak Japanese if you have 10 minutes to spare each day.

The idea of course is to have a well planned out learning system that only requires you to set aside 10 minutes each day for learning Japanese.

The key to learning Japanese is really quite simple. If I were to summarize it, it would be….

L.A.R. (Learn, Apply and Repeat)

One of the biggest mistakes most beginner Japanese learners face is to Apply and Repeat what they had studied before.

What’s the point of learning new phrases and vocabularies only to forget about them later? It’s pointless right?

Imagine that you’re learning a list of 20 new Japanese words. Without apply and repeating that list of 20 Japanese words, your chances of retaining them would be around a mere 10 percent.

In other words, that’s only 2 words. Without applying and repeating that word list, you continue to learn more new words. Again, everytime you learn a new list, you’re only able to remember 2 words. But that’s not all…

The more Japanese words you learn, the more confused and harder you will find Japanese is. Indeed, you will start realizing that even if you kinda know what’s the meaning of that Japanese word, you have no idea how to use it.

That’s why the Apply and Repeat part play such a vital role in learning Japanese effectively.

Forcing yourself unnaturally and unwillingly to memorize Japanese ords can only do you more harm n the long run. Learning Japanese ithout a proper plan is like shooting an arrow without a target in mind.

If you’re an absolute Japanese beginner who want to impress your friends with spoken Japanese, here are 3 simple Japanese words or phrases that you can use on your friends to impress them.

Konnichiwa (pronounced as Kone niche jee waa). This is something similar to “Hi” and “Hello”. You can say this to your friend whenever you meet him. Just think of it as a form of greeting.

Sumimasen (pronounced as Sue mee maa cent). This is the equivalent of “I’m sorry” or “my apology”. So the next time you’re late on a date or a meeting, just say sumimasen.

Sugoi (pronounced as Sue go it – without the t). Sugoi means cool, excellent or awesome. When you want to give someone a compliment, try saying sugoi!

When you meet someone – say “Konnichiwa!” When you hurt someone – say “Sumimasen!” When someone kiss you – say “Sugoi!”

Can you see the beauty behind the simple but powerful L.A.R. system? Learn, Apply and Repeat!

The more you learn, you more you need to apply and repeat. The more you reinforce what you’ve learned (by applying and repetition), the better your Japanese will be. The secret key to learning Japanese is to have a simple and workable plan that you must consistently stick to it no matter what.

By applying the L.A.R. system, there’s simply no reason why you can’t remember and master those 3 Japanese words, “Konnichiwa”, “Sumimasen”, and “Sugoi” easily, today!

How long would it take to learn japanese (or any other language)?

December 29, 2008 by admin · 8 Comments 

I’ve always wanted to learn Japanese but never had time to do it, or was committed to it. I plan to practice 1 hour a day with rosetta stone…for how long I don’t know. But how long do you think it would take me to be able to keep up a conversation? Not perfect, but at least to keep one going.

If you go to the National Virtual Translation Center – nvtc.gov, there is a page listing the language difficulties for English speaking people of different languages. It shows the approximate time it would take an average person to learn the desired language in a classroom setting. (Japanese being 88 weeks or 2200 classroom hours).

But the time to learn depends on if you want to just be able to listen to and speak the language, or if you also want to learn how to read and write the language.

I’ve heard Rosetta Stone was good, would like to try it myself someday. You may want to try recordedbooks.com. You can rent audio books from them. They have Pimsleur language CDs (and tapes) for many languages. You can rent Pimsleur Japanese Course I, II and III for $15.95/month each. (Note that each Course come in parts A and B, but you still get a lot of lessons for the price. I used the Japanese lesson a few years ago and it was like 17 lessons on 8 CDs just for part A)

For some free resources check out:

http://www.japan-zone.com/forum/ – great forum to learn more about japanese culture and get help with your language questions

Stick with Rosetta Stone and consider using Pimsleur audio CDs. Those together will really help.

Where is the best website to learn Japanese online?

December 29, 2008 by admin · 3 Comments 

I wanted to learn Japanese online, but don't know where to start, I'm wondering if anyone could tell me which website out there is the best for me to learn Japanese from.

♡That's a good question and one that gets asked often. Most of the sites given for that question are listed for you below. Try the first one listed, it seems to be a good starter site. But you have to check them all and decide for yourself. We all learn differently, what may be right for me, may not work for you. I personally learned from native speakers when I came to Japan. It was the best way for me to get natural speaking and correct pronunciation right. Good luck learning Japanese, I hope this helps! Please visit Japan too, if you have a chance.♡

Im trying to learn japanese does anyone have any suggestions?

December 29, 2008 by admin · 5 Comments 

Ive been trying to learn japanese, because Im going to be taking a trip to japan in a few months. Ive been using the books and CD’s but nothing has worked out to well, does anyone have any suggestions on the best ways to learn the language? I want to learn as much as i can and maybe someday be fluant.

you have to learn a foreign language as you learned your mother one but how can you do that? first at all you must be surrounded by it. You need to hear it all the time, on the radio, on the tv, read it in the newspapers etc even if you don’t understand it. But this all helps in pronunciation and correct word order then learn the structure grammatical of the language but not focus on it just the basic and the second try to speak japanese continually even if you don’t speak correctly then you speak on the right way it’ll help you to speak fluently, so you have to understand you are a baby in this case at the beginning you have to learn to crawl before you learn to walk.
That’s it good luck

What are some Good Japanese Books to get to learn the language?

December 29, 2008 by admin · 6 Comments 

Can anyone list me some good Japanese Dictionaries, Kanji Books, and any good “Learn Japanese” Books?

Thank you.

I came to Japan with ZERO knowledge of the Japanese Language. I studied the language for 1 year. For the first six months, we used Minna no Nihonggo I and II (みんなの日本語)books in our intensive course class. Then we advanced to Shin Nihonggo Chukyu(新日本語中級). The text books are in hiragana and kanji (with furigana or reading) but come with separate books for grammatical explanations and translations in english. You’ve got to learn hiragana/ katakana and simple kanjis first though. I would recommend these books if you’re serious to learn.

What is the best book and CD combination to learn Japanese with?

December 29, 2008 by admin · 3 Comments 

I want to learn Japanese in a fun, exciting and simple way. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what books and cds are best to use? And how long would you say it took you to learn the basics of Japanese by using them?

i think the best way to learn Japanese, or any other languages, is to live in the country. but if you are in the UK; you can use a book called: Japanese for busy people. also for vocabulary; you ought to use the Oxford beginners Japanese dictionary. at last, there is the point and speak book that you can use for travel.
the Oxford dictionary is good to use as the Japanese words are written IN Japanese so you will have to learn Hiragana and katakana. it is all good fun.
the NHK also offer some online lessons.

http://www.nhk.or.jp/lesson/english/index.html

check it out. it is good to listen, in order to train your ears.
i have been in Japan for two months now; and i am starting to get a few sentences in and out. if you practise a lot it could come fairly quickly but don't expect to be fluent within a short period of time. Good luck to you and come and visit this fantastic country!

What is the best and fastest way to learn Japanese?

December 29, 2008 by admin · 7 Comments 

I am a U.S. citizen and I have a Japanese fiance. She speaks fluent English but her family only speaks Japanese and I would like to communicate with them as well as be able to have an additional language skill for possible future employment requiring it.

Without going to Japan, what is the best way to learn a foreign language? Any resources, tips, programs would be most effective. I am only interested in conversational Japanese now.

Get your fiancee to stop speaking to you in English. Pick up a good dictionary (I like Random House's as a beginner dictionary) and get in the habit of using the words that are necessary in daily life. You'll learn a lot of Japanese very quickly that way.

What is the best software to learn Japanese?

December 29, 2008 by admin · 2 Comments 

I notice Rosetta Stone is an expensive program, but I think it sucks. Using it to learn Japanese is kinda useless, because there isn't much instruction in the program. This program does no even go over hiragana, nor katakana. It just throws symbols right in your face like it is expecting you to know these things.

Are they any other good software to learn Japanese with, without leaving my home?

i know some free site

http://www.nhk.or.jp/lesson/

http://www.saiga-jp.com/pronunciation_voice.html

http://www.freejapaneselessons.com/

http://japanese.about.com/library/blhiragana.htm

if you have money to buy software, you better go language school. or find native tutor.
