How to self study Japanese

HWZ Forumer: “Can, how do i self study Japanese? Is it possible?”
Can: “Yes, it’s possible. I have seen people who have done it”
HWZ Forumer: “So how do i start?”

1. Start remembering how to write and read the Hiragana Chart.
The Youtube videos provided by Japanese101 is very useful.

2. Start learning grammar.
Tae Kim’s website offers a good grammar guide.
Good books like Genki/Japanese for Busy People are good for self-learners as well. (^_^)

3. Start learning vocabulary.
MLC Japanese page has a comprehensive JLPT guide to help you to learn vocabulary. Start from N5, then slowly proceed to N1.

4. Have a good dictionary.
Tagaini Jisho is a good dictionary to help you with words that you don’t know.

5. Listen to Japanese songs/drama/anime and try to mimic the tones/what they say.
Majo no Jyoken is a good drama to start.

Feel free to ask me any questions if you encounter any problems. =)
