Recommended for Beginners of Japanese.
Learning Japanese can be a lot of fun. But it is important to begin your learning with structure. You don't want to end up knowing random or useless
information that will sap your motivation once the initial enthusiasm fades.
This ebook is intended to introduce important grammatical points in a structured way. We will introduce only the most useful grammatical points
ordered by how common they are in beginner level textbooks. It is not, however, designed to replace a textbook or even a detailed grammar book. It
is our hope that this ebook will help make complex grammar seem a little less intimidating.
As a result, we spend little time thoroughly explaining each grammatical note. Each of the one hundred lessons are designed to be completed in less
than five minutes. You won't master a grammatical point in one five-minute sitting. You will, however, become familiar with something previously
unknown. The next time you review that lesson or run across it in your textbook, you will feel like you are meeting someone you have seen or even met
In fact, that is a good way to look at it. We believe that learning complex and previously unknown things like grammar is best done in stages:
Stranger (This is an unknown grammatical point.)
Acquaintance (You've heard of it but don't know much about its function or usage.)
Friend (You know a good deal about its function and usage, but may not be able to use it smoothly in conversation.)
Best Friend (You have mastered the grammatical point and you are able to use it correctly at will.)
This ebook will help you meet Strangers and move them into the Acquaintance or Friend category.
Also included is an article on the top ten mistakes beginners make--learn about common mistakes before you make them.
