Two decades ago, we began TheJapanesePage.com, one of the internet's oldest and largest free Japanese instructional sites with hundreds of free articles for beginners of Japanese. We also run TheJapanShop.com, an online store that sells quality lessons and Japanese study materials like books, eBooks, videos, audios and articles which are helpful for learners of Japanese. We also have Makoto+ - a monthly e-zine for beginner to intermediate learners of Japanese. It is a digital magazine with all the good stuff not usually found in textbooks. It has articles on Japanese grammar, kanji, culture, and art. Each issue also includes two complete short stories with vocabulary, grammar explanations, and two sound files of each story (normal speed and slower).
Hi Clay and Party, this is a fantastic course. Congratullations!
I can already see part II covering the prefectures of Japan, or city names.
Hi Stephan, thank you! Actually, yes. I am definitely planning a course specifically on Japanese geography. It is so important to know Japan well since Japanese is mainly spoken only there.
I have a lesson page on the prefectures here:
The future course will build on the information there.
I am looking forward to it :D!
I just finished the Anki deck on the prefectures and am happy how much more I can read now!
Great! I’m working on it here and there. Now that Makoto #55 is out, maybe I should focus on the Prefectures course. 🙂
