This course will teach you how to speak, read, and write Japanese. Be expected to take notes, as you will not learn by just watching the video. There will be quizzes to test your knowledge, and I will link you to as many resources as I possibly can for your interests. If you want to talk to other Japanese people, or simply want to enjoy a Japanese song without wondering what they're saying, then this course is for you. This course will take as long as you make it. There are many lessons provided as well as many resources and quizzes. You don't have to rush -- this course is built to be structured around your time, not mine.

I am an Indonesian Italian whose majors are Japanese and Computer Science. I've studied Japanese since I was in middle school and am now pursuing my Bachelors in it. With Computer Science, I've dabbled with C++, Python, Linux, Assembly Language for Intel x84, Blender and Unreal Engine 4. In my free time I like to play piano, chat with many Japanese friends I've made over the years, and experimentally work on my own video game.
