Benefits of learning Japanese

Japanese is spoken by approximately 128 million people, 90% of which live in Japan, one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Known for its unique architecture, famous traditions, high life expectancy and stunning mountains like Fiji, Japan should be high on your list to visit and explore.

Japanese is known for being one of the most difficult languages in the world to learn, so what better way to impress fellow anime fans than by actually being able to speak it! As well as having three different levels of formality which changes the verb conjugation and grammar, Japanese uses three different writing systems: hiragana, katakana and the Chinese characters, kanji. So there is a lot to learn for anyone who’s ready and willing.

Becoming fluent in a second language, especially a popular one like Japanese, instantly opens up a new world of opportunities in your career, with exciting job prospects such as being a translator, interpreter - and even being able to work in any field or with any number of clients who happen to speak the languages you speak!

I learned more Spanish in one short cartoon than I did with months of Duolingo, and I just started! I can't wait to learn more.

How to learn Japanese with TV in 8 easy steps

These 8 simple steps will elevate your Japanese learning experience and give you better, faster results:

The first thing you’ll need to do to get yourself off the ground is become acquainted with all three scripts that the Japanese language consists of. Learn each alphabet, familiarising yourself with every symbol and sound and build up a core vocabulary.

Next up, try to find a show that you find engaging and entertaining. Learning Japanese through TV is much more effective if you are engaged and immersed in the content.

Watch a little bit of Japanese  TV every day, even if it’s just for a couple of minutes. It’s only possible to become fluent if you establish new learning habits on a daily basis.

Get a good understanding of Lingopie’s amazing language learning tools. It will be very helpful for your Japanese learning if you know how to repeat, pause and listen to words again and save them to your personal flashcards.

Repeat the dialogue you’ve just heard out loud. If it was too fast, you can use our tool which reads it back to you slowly. Don’t be passive in your learning; make sure you comprehend the content. This is a must when wanting to learn Japanese as effectively as possible.

Make notes and write down any Japanese vocabulary that you find important or useful. Writing down words and phrases will significantly increase your ability to remember them. Lingopie saves the words you click on, but hand-writing them will make you remember it even better!

Retell the plot of the show or the movie out loud - to yourself or to someone who understands the Japanese language. Even speaking in front of the mirror will help you! Speaking out loud is an important exercise to establish the contents you’ve downloaded into your brain.

Once you are a little more advanced and feeling confident, you can turn off the supporting English subtitles and just leave up the Japanese ones. This ensures that you count solely on your own understanding without a helping hand. But don’t worry if you’re struggling because you can still click the words on the Japanese subs and see the translation displayed!
