    [Article] Learning Japanese through Visual Novels

    Learn to read Japanese in 2 years time - by reading VNs and watching anime
    This post has been updated to include Anime as a learning option as well
    http://visualnovelaer.wordpress.com/...h-vn-or-anime/



    it takes about 1.5 'productive' hours per day for ONE year and you will be reading in Japanese (I said 2 years in the guide because it's being realistic). this is the funnest method I know.
    no need to drill through thousands and thousands of model sentences if you can just read VNs or watch anime. Also you only learn how to READ Japanese, you don't learn Japanese as a whole. you wont be good at speaking it, listening to it or writing it.

    Hello. ^_^
    I first encountered your blog while looking for a guide in self-studying Japanese. I've started playing pc otome games and am using AGTH. I'd like to ask what is its difference with ITH? Do TA works on it as well?

    Updated it with the new link.
    The previous guide was written over a year ago and the instructions were wrong in some parts.

    also I added watching anime as a learning option.

    Thanks a lot, man. This will be a big help someday. If you don't mind me asking Aaeru-san, do you know how to write kanji traditionally?

    nope not one bit!!

    i can type kanji though for example i can still write an email to an online shop the other day telling them not to cancel my ps vita, which ultimately i think is more useful for overseas ppl.

    I already have those Aaeru-san. What I mean to say is do you know a site where they can teach you how to write it by hand?

    you can't learn write kanji by hand alone, even if there's a guide book... you need a teacher first! to teach you how to wrote basic kanji!

    otherwise, even if you manage to do it alone, you'll spent years for mastering it, even though you could master it in a few week training

    Oh, so I'll need to find a good instructor first? Okay, thanks for the help Anima-san.
