6. Listen and repeat

Listening to native speakers is one of the best ways to learn Japanese like; When you hear a new phrase or sentence, try to repeat it back as accurately as you can...

For eg. 、 if you hear someone saying "彼女はきれいだね"、 you can repeat it back as "彼女はきれいだね"、 focusing on enunciating each word correctly.

(This is similar to a chef learning a new recipe, who tastes and repeats back the instructions to ensure they understand them correctly and then recreate the dish with their own interpretation).

43% of the world's population is bilingual, meaning they can fluently speak two languages.

Thus, it's another fun way to make new friends while learning!

8. Immerse yourself in the language

This one is quite common as you might have heard it many times.

Although it's a must do thing!

As it's said - "you learn a language fast if you live in that country for a year".

But since not everyone can afford to live in a foreign country - the cheap way to get a feel of that is to join community groups and such institutions where conversation classes happen.

For example - (Team language institute), which organizes conversation classes every weekend. Conducted by experienced native Japanese teachers

They provide a fun and interactive learning environment, giving students an opportunity to practise their conversation skills

The classes also provide cultural insights into the Japanese language and culture.

9. Use flash cards

Make a set of flashcards with the English on one side and the Japanese version on the other
