Tips To Improve Your Japanese!

We all know how difficult it is to study Japanese. Remembering kanji, vocabulary, sentence structure, conjugations...we go through it all studying Japanese! Most of us don't even live in a neighborhood or community where there are Japanese native speakers. And because of that, we can't improve and practice our Japanese often so we usually forget many things we learn, make many mistakes from time to time, or even give up! So today, I will give ways you can practice and improve your Japanese without always be frustrated all the time and want to give up~! ^_^

1. TALK TO YOURSELF!:

Yeah, that might sound kind of weird trust me, I thought the same but then again, it really helps a lot! It helps your brain formulate the language by remembering verb conjugations, sentence structure, and vocabulary like second nature so you won't sound awkward translating word to word. And if you are able to, you can record yourself speaking the language and post it on YouTube and see what others think of your Japanese!

2. READ EVERYTHING!:

Reading Japanese will really help because if you go to Japan, everything is basically in Kanji, Hiragana, and Katakana! You can't just use Romaji!! Romaji is never really used in Japan. They only teach you Romaji when you first start learning Japanese so you can pronounce the Japanese language correctly. Reading will help you get used to recognizing Kanji, Hiragana, and Katakana fluently.

3. WRITE ALL THE TIME!:

When you write all the time, it helps you remember how to write the character and remember its strokes and structure and soon it will become stuck in your mind! It was the same when you were learning your ABC's and you usually didn't know how to write the character correctly and sometimes we be writing them backwards. But, the more you practice the easier it will become and become stuck in your memory.

4. SPEAK,SPEAK,SPEAK!:

Speaking Japanese on regular basis is important so you can be able to be use to speaking the language all the time. And many people are afraid because they think they will make a mistake or accidentally insult them. But, people need to remember that when you speak to native speakers it is okay to make mistakes because you are being corrected on the things you made a mistake in the language. Its okay to make mistakes, no one is perfect. Even many native speakers of different languages make mistakes without even knowing. We even do in our own language!! And if you don't have any Japanese native speakers to chat with, try talking with Japanese people in Hangouts in Google+ !! ^_^ Or you can go to a Japanese restaurant and speak to the Japanese in Japanese to practice!! ^_^

I hope you guys enjoy my tips to learn Japanese and improve your Japanese language skills well!! ^_^
