    Hi everyone you may call me Shiahkazi if you like, if any of you are trying or are thinking about learning Japanese then come check out my youtube channel. I have one video called 5 tips on learning Japanese. I think all the tips are great but the last tips is one not given or said very often. I would like to upload once a week. The next video will be something along the lines on how to learn Japanese (what websites I use right now/apps) and yes there are free stuff but also paid stuff. I know this wasn't much of and introduction and I am sorry about that but I just don't like to talk about myself. Thanks for reading and I hope to see some comments on my video. I will answer any question that I can answer about Japanese, if you do check the video out and you are learning Japanese share some tips with me as well as I am still learning; later!

    Hey there. I've been trying to learn Japanese for years now. It's not the easiest language out there, but since I've been otaku from 1982 until today, I can safely say that subbed anime or subbed tokusatsu eiga do tend to help your brain get a grip on how everything works with the language.

    Don't worry about speaking naturally (rapidly) at first, just concentrate on accuracy. Nothing botches a convo worse than pronouncing a word wrong, or getting the sentence structure totally mangled.

    The main problem I have with that is unless you know that Japanese is a subject object verb language and that include particles no and wa, as well as some others. You maybe be able to get maybe ten words from anime but I will admit it gives you a feel for the language and will end up helping your pronunciation.

    Also working at a traditional Japanese Restaurant helps too. I worked at one for a year, and my boss said that full language immersion works. I had to learn hiragana, katakana, kanji, and how to converse with the Japanese customers. You know what? He was right.

    But then again, I already knew that Japanese has a backwards/inside-out sentence structure anyway. My boss once told me that I have a Tokyo accent, and that I needed to speak with an Osaka accent, since most of the Japanese customers we had were from the Kansai region.
