The goal of this course is to teach you Hiragana and Katakana the RIGHT way. The way it's taught in Japanese schools.
This course is good for anyone interested in taking their Japanese to the next level. A lot of textbooks don't give exact instructions on how to write these characters. They just show you the character and expect you to figure out everything on your own.
The purpose of this course is to take different approach - to really walk you through all the characters while holding your hand (not in a weird way! :D )
Riko-chan - our native speaker - has been overseeing the entire course so all of the content is genuine. She also prepared practice sheets which you can use to improve your handwriting.
The entire course is basically a video course. Plus you're getting the mentioned practice sheets in JPG format which you can print out.
In Module 1 we'll teach you Hiragana.
In Module 2 we'll move onto Katakana, and we'll show you how to write your name in Japanese.
In Bonus Module we'll teach you 22 Kanji characters (numbers 1-10, and the 12 Animals of the Japanese Zodiac).
Throughout the course we'll teach you well over 300 words.
Flashcards to help you practice reading the characters are available for downloading as well.
Anyone aiming to write correctly, be able to read manga (world-wide popular Japanese comic books), children's books and eventually novels and newspapers will benefit greatly from this course.
What you need to know about me is that I have a great passion for languages.
It all started with Japanese. I’ve been “exposed” to Japanese for many many years (studied since 2008).
During these years I went through many different books and courses. To be frank I feel like they all lacked something. Every book inevitably made me go try a different one for one reason or another. Typically lack of detailed explanations.
I wasted a lot of time with countless books and courses, running around in circles. I don’t want other people to go through the same.
I spent about a year in Japan and realized Japanese doesn't need to be so confusing. In fact it makes perfect sense when explained right.
So my ambition is to create the best Japanese courses out there. Mainly, I want to focus on comprehensiveness, completion, and context.
And I have awesome native speakers to back me up!
Japanese is my third language. My fourth one being Mandarin Chinese.
All together I speak English, Czech, Japanese, and Chinese.
