Learn Japanese For $0.00! And Keep the Change!

+ posted by njt in Shout-Outs on Oct 14, 2009 17:57

Wanting to learn Japanese but need a guide to do so? Then look no further! For the low low price of FREE you can get started on the language you associate with chicken scratches and, oh yeah, Manga!

Topics featured:

1. Syntax
2. Verb Grammar
3. More Verb Grammar
4. Particles
5. Counters
6. Language Patterns

And the appendices:

1. Set Phrases
2. Conjugation Schemes
3. Glossary

The author, Pomax, is an old friend of mine who has even written an article featured here about the Art of Translation. He has a passion for helping people understand Japanese, as can be seen from taking the time to write a complete 354 (increased from before) page book on learning it, and hopes that his book can help you or anyone you know on your way. So start reading it online, or download the PDF to read it offline. If you have any questions or would like to get to know Pomax hop into irc.irchighway.net and join channel #nihongo and you'll generally find him there.

Anyway enough reading this post and more starting Learning Japanese since any Japanese speaker will tell you, manga is SO much better read in the original language. So what are you waiting for?! Find out what you've been missing in your life, today!

It's a little on the dry side, but all the information I read so far was spot-on and well-put, so I'm sure I'll be reading through and seeing what I can learn from him. Thanks for posting about this.

The other site is the second link after googling,"learn japanese."

I tried reading this book years ago but I just found it to be extremely boring and difficult to understand. In the end it taught me nothing because I couldn't concentrate on it. I much prefer Tae Kim's Guide to Japanese, that one is gold.

*bows* thank you. After all this time picking up pieces and little bits of the language while not being able to figure out how exactly the grammar works, it seems like this will set my poor brain to rest. XD So thank you, and thank you so much to Pomax as well.
