It turns out that to understand without a translator what the heroes of anime and films of Hayao Miyazaki and Takeshi Kitano say is not so much time - only a year and a half. But, of course, you will need a certain zeal and perseverance.

How to learn Japanese? To begin with, it is necessary to clearly define the goal, since such as “I want to learn a language” is too vague and not suitable for business. The goal should be clear - it will determine how and what you will learn. For example, if you want to read books in Japanese, then this is one thing, if you watch TV shows and anime without subtitles - another thing, and if you talk to native speakers, then the third one. And for each of these tasks, learning the language will be different.But at the same time it is best if you use all the options when studying. After all, the main tips on how to learn Japanese on your own, in many language study guides, are no different from those given to students of other languages ​​- and it does not matter whether hieroglyphs are used in the language or not. But if you are going to learn Japanese yourself from scratch in order to just read books - it is still better to learn how to write hieroglyphs - so you will have more chances to memorize. In learning any language, memorization is the most important thing. Therefore, you need to use as many channels as possible for the perception of information: read books, watch movies with subtitles, listen to songs in the original language and, of course, communicate with native speakers.

It is worth remembering that learning should be interesting and fun - many drop out of the language without having finished it to the desired level, just because its study has become a monotonous routine. And how not to turn into a routine that you have to memorize the same thing over and over again? The answer is one - a variety of approaches to learning.

However, the one who nevertheless set out to learn Japanese independently from scratch,and made the first successes in this field, never forget this amazing feeling, literally the sensations of a miracle - when behind a previously meaningless set of incomprehensible hieroglyphic pictures there suddenly appears some understandable meaning. It is not surprising if you want to make this miracle your constant companion. But the first thing you have to do is to familiarize yourself with the alphabet, more precisely, with the Japanese script. In Japanese, there are already three types of writing: Kanji, that is, Chinese characters, and two syllabary alphabets created in Japan: Hiragana and Katakana.
