Learning Japanese intensively

Recommended Posts

xue, Good luck to you :) I would say meeting only once a week, no matter how many hours is not the same as meeting three or more times a week, even with less time. Forty total hours is not going to make anyone intermediate, but just keep going and you'll get there. Living Language is a nice place to start, but when they say "begining to intermediate", don't believe them.

For verbs, try this

For adjectives and adverbs, trythis

For grammar, try




There are others, but those are some I know and I think are very good. If you like using a textbook, Japanaese for Everyone is good and popular.

As for studying Japanese after Chinese, I think that makes Japanese much easier. In fact, I think that in the smaller bits Chinese and Japanese grammar are closer than English and Chinese. My Japanese classmates in Taiwan thought so as well. I think Japanese is more difficult than Chinese, but that may just be because I'm a grammar moron.
