Have you ever faced the problem of wanting to learn Japanese but not knowing where to start, or having a general understanding of basic Japanese but not knowing what to do next?

In this session, we will return to the essence of how we learn new languages and introduce recommended study methods, materials, and websites based on this. In the second half, we will introduce recommended teaching materials and sites for each purpose, specifically for those who want to learn Japanese grammar and words, or improve individual skills such as reading, listening, speaking, and writing. Also, based on our knowledge of second language acquisition, we will also provide you with tips on how to proceed with your learning efficiently.
