Learning a foreign language is always a daunting task, but the efforts are always worth it. By learning Japanese language you can make your travel to Japan more interesting and comfortable, you can improve your relationship with your Japanese business counterparts, and you can also find job opportunities in Japan.

Here are 7 great tips that will help you learn the Japanese language.

  1. Before you start learning the language, be determined. It is going to be time consuming and would require a lot of hard work. Make sure you will keep yourself motivated throughout and would not leave your language learning in between.

  1. Consider the different language learning tools and then choose the one that appeals you the most. You can learn Japanese from books, online, through Japanese class lessons, games, audio lessons, or phrase books.

  1. Start with the basic pronunciation first. Every language has certain special sounds that are particular to it. If you want to speak Japanese fluently, you have to know those sounds so that you can develop the correct accent.

  1. Look at the Japanese words, read their translation and then say it over and over. It would stick in your mind.

  1. Try to think of some association between the English and Japanese words. The Japanese word wasureta means I forgot. It is quite similar to saying where is the letter in English. It’s a good way of memorising foreign words and letters.

  1. Revise whatever you learn. Spend quality time everyday in revising the Japanese words and phrases that you have learnt. Even if you are able to devote only 5 minutes in a day, make the most of it.

  1. One of the best ways to learn a foreign language is to be in the company of people who can speak that language. It will give you a constant exposure to that foreign language and will also encourage you to speak that and overcome your inhibitions.

All the best in your language learning endeavours.
