How to make more progress in Japanese Language?
First, calm yourself down. Take a breath. Perhaps meditate for a little while. The key here is to avoid becoming overwhelmed. Now, go a little deeper into your existing Japanese skills and knowledge. You know what you know and you know what you don’t know. Take a moment to seriously analyse your weaknesses. Be honest with yourself.
Once you identify some key areas in which you can improve, you can target those areas to continue improving. Let’s have a look at how we can identify and correct our problems.
This post will address a few different key issues you may be having in learning Japanese:
- Sounding like a native speaker
- Speaking without fear
- Motivation (or lack thereof)

It might not be a free option but it’s probably the fastest and most effective way to practice your conversation as well as learn about the Japanese language. Especially if you don’t have any Japanese friends to talk to. You can search for teachers in your area or take to Skype options to find a quick, convenient solution.
Find your reason
Maybe you don’t really remember why you’re studying in the first place. Get back that spark that pushed you to learn Japanese in the first place and you’ll be well on the path to recovery.

Take to the internet
The internet is a great resource for many things. It’s provided us a way to communicate across the vast oceans that may separate us. Lucky for us, there are some great tools out there to help us learners meet native Japanese speakers with whom we can practice speaking.
Continue learning Japanese or speaking Japanese in your everyday interactions with people who already know Japanese fluently. Keep practising with the same vigour and be consistent with learning!
You will be soon on the path to success!
