Hi everyone!
Welcome to the first lesson of our Absolute Beginner series :)

This series is designed for anyone new to Japanese who wants to get started speaking and not worry about the fine details of grammar (If you are interested in a grammar-focused approach to learning Japanese, we recommend our Newbie Season 2 series!). We teach Japanese using easy-to-memorize patterns that you can start using right away. We start with 5 Introduction lessons to show you the basics, and then launch into a regular storyline starting with Lesson 6.

We hope you enjoy this series!

Hi ๅงœๆฐธๅพท,


Thank you very much for the comment! Wow! The result of the ancestry DNA test must be a really great motivator for you to get back to Japanese learning. I understand your struggle with one pronunciation could have a couple of different meanings [example: ใฆใ‚“ใจใ†/tentล could be ่ปขๅ€’ (falling down), ๅบ—้ ญ (shopfront), or ็‚น็ฏ (turning on a light). ] But you should feel lucky that you have an advantage on Kanji learning. Kanji is the most difficult part of learning Japanese to majority of Japanese learners.


Thank you very much for studying with us and we hope you'll continue your learning with us!


Sincerely,

Miki H

Thanks to telepathy . I don't know why I love Japanese since my childhood, but the Japanese is the most difficult language to learn, even I have known Chinese characters , but the pronunciation of Kanji in Japanese has a lot of the same pronunciations so that we cannnot understand if only hear the sound without seeing the characters themselves, so regret they don't have many different pronunciatinons as in Chinese language. That 's why I have been discouraged and quit it for very long time, untilI recently I found my Japanese genes in my bloodline throught Ancestry DNA test, this is also the motive power let me start again. I 've tried some method but I found this method is the easiest way to learn Japanese, so I love it

Thank you very much

Hello Antonio,


Thank you for your question.

We put the kana version in those brackets in the Vocabulary section.

In this lesson, you can see the same text there twice, because there's no kanji on the left.


Let us know if you have any further questions.

Cheers,

Lena
