The 5 Chillest Ways to Learn Japanese Speaking at Home
Japan, the name itself makes you think of all fantasies. You have had the best Ramen, enjoyed the colourful, to die for sushi and a Hanabi night in your mind. And of course, I am pretty sure that one of the things that come to our mind is their natural hot springs located near the mountain and we dream of the days where we go camping with our friends near the iconic mountain Fuji. We could not be any happier to have witnessed the beauty of Sakura.
It makes you feel like you are an anime character chasing dreams in a movie. It gives you an urge to learn Japanese and makes you feel like you want to leave the place and settle in Japan. Let us forget the fantasies and get to the point where you can learn Japanese comfortably at home.

Learn the basics.
Now we have various applications where you can learn the Japanese alphabets so that you can have a better understanding of how to pronounce the words in the correct manner. The Kanji, Hiragana and Katakana consist of several thousand characters that are used in many ways. It is not an easy task, but it is worth having good knowledge if you really like to learn Japanese. This will also help you a lot in the future because you do not pronounce it the way it is written. You can also use many online learning videos. It is found that many YouTube tutorials have been found immensely helpful in learning how to speak Japanese fluently and quickly or you can always reach out for professional online classes.
Change of usual preferences of songs and watch movies without the subtitles and observe.
First, go get your headphones and put on a Japanese anime song or whichever song that makes you feel like you’re in Japan and sing along to the song that you’re listening to and enjoy yourself. Whenever you watch a Japanese movie, turn off the subtitle and try to understand the movie, watch it over again with the subtitle on and observe if your understandings are mutual to what the characters actually mean. After a few movies, you will catch a hint on the words that are used the most often.
Talk to yourself in Japanese.
Create a scene in your head and pretend that you are both the persons. A scene where these two suddenly bump into one another after so long and you have this conversation. Act it out with all the emotions too. It will certainly improve your Japanese accent. Keep practising as practice makes it better and better.
Keep a closer look at their daily lives.
Go follow all Japan related accounts on social media to be up to date in what’s happening over there. Be very enthusiastic about learning about their cultures and what not you can learn about Japan. Google has everything you can scrutinize the entire day. Read books too, that tells a tale of the living of Japan. Having thorough background knowledge of Japan can help you understand the Japanese more efficiently.
Be like them.
Hangout with your anime freak friends that love and talk about Japanese anime movies always and plan for a day where you and your friends can make yourselves your own bowls of Japanese soupy ramen noodles and eat it the way they do. Interacting with others in Japanese will help not only yourself but the whole group participating in the interaction. Everyone can help each other to learn and correct their errors. Learning is more effective in a fun way.
