[eBook] Free - Confessions of a Japanese Linguist - How to Master Japanese @ Amazon AU/US


Amazon US link

Should be a good read.

Follow the author on his odyssey from a 24-year-old Midwesterner unable to speak a word of Japanese as he recounts his initial struggle to survive even Japanese 101, to cramming four years of college Japanese into one year with top grades, to gaining functional fluency, conquering kanji, and finally gaining sufficient mastery over the language to develop marketable Japanese skills as a Japanese teacher and translator, all within four short years.

There is no shortage of excellent resources for learning the Japanese language. If simply having access to excellent study material or a learning environment were the key to language learning success, anyone today with an Internet connection or a good textbook would become a successful learner. However, without the proper insight and understanding of what it really takes to master Japanese, the reality is that most aspiring Japanese learners ultimately fail in their quest to master the language or even gain a basic level of fluency.

Topics covered include:

-Succeeding in Classroom Japanese
-Study Abroad in Japan
-Japanese Foreign Exchange
-Successful Japanese Self-study
-Conquering Kanji
-Mastering Spoken Japanese
-Negotiating Japanese Social Conventions
-Making the Most of Your Stay in Japan
-Advanced Japanese Language Study
-Sex, Romance and the Japanese Language
-Teaching English in Japan
-How to Make Your Japanese Marketable
-Working in Japan for a Japanese Company
-How to Find a Japanese Specialization
-Maintaining and Improving Japanese Post-Japan
-How to Break into the Japanese Translation Industry
-And Much More

  • Thanks for the recommendation! while we're on the topic i just found a new app called Kaku which i use as my notebook to study japanese on my iphone and ipad. it translates everything as i type so it acts like an autochecker. get it while it's still free: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/kaku/id1515101339#?platform=ip...

    • It says $1.49 for me

      • try again, i'm pretty sure it's free. but you should be upgrading to premium to support the developer and get all the features!
