Sentences are a great way to learn Japanese, especially once you’ve already finished RTK (obviously, you should still be doing your RTK reviews! ;)). But it can be hard to know where to start or even where to continue after you’ve finished whatever sentence pack/book you started with. My method may not be perfect, but it seems to have worked quite well for me, so I’m here to show you what it is. Hopefully it helps some of you! 😀 (more…)
Obviously, to make Japanese media easily accessible, you have to know where to get it. Over time, I’ve accumulated a few sites that I scour around every now and then. Though I already have plenty lined up for me to watch. 😛 I’m sure there are some great places I missed, but here are some of my favorites!
I’ve owned every (popular) game system, since the original Nintendo, at least once. Yet, I pretty much ended up getting rid of them all for PC gaming (except for DS and PSP). I prefer being at my PC playing games, so I can multi-task. Now I’ve finally bought myself a proper controller to play games that were meant to always be played with a controller, not keyboard and mouse. Step into the world of “XBOX 360 Controller for Windows”!
Recently, since Tadoku started, I realized carrying manga books around can be a pain at times. It hit me that I needed to be using some form of eReader as it would allow me to, at any point, read different manga books throughout the day without having to carry a bunch. Thus, my search for the best way to read digital manga began!
Pretty recently, NihongoUp created some new projects such as charts and posters. They are sold as packages, with three different packages being available. I ended up buying two packages, cause I love charts, posters, etc. I thought I’d share with you, how I use mine! ^^; (more…)
A while back I acquired an Android phone, more specifically a Sprint HTC EVO, which I have been in love with ever since. So far, I’ve found a good deal of apps that can help when learning Japanese, but there are 5 apps that stick out for me. These are apps that are worth making sure you always have on your phone.
A while back I had bought some cheap Japanese manga that I found at a local Half Price Bookstore. Using the concept of doing things you enjoy but in Japanese, from Khatz of AJATT, I decided to choose a manga from my lot and read it. Among them, on the reverse side of a ドラえもん book, was ペンギンの問題.
If you happened to see my recent post on Immersion at Work, then you probably know I’ve got at least a decent (for someone who is still a beginner 😉 ) amount of Manga collected/stored up. In my search for the best places to purchase Manga, I’ve got it down to 4 specific places I look for Manga every time when I’m interested in buying some.
