The Japanese language is spoken by about 128 million people, primarily from Japan. It is an east Asian language and the national language of Japan.
The Japanese writing system consists of three different character sets: kanji, hiragana, and katakana. Japanese texts can be written in two ways: In Western style, i.e. in horizontal rows from the top to the bottom of the page, or in traditional Japanese style, i.e. in vertical columns from the right to the left side of the page. Both writing styles exist side by side today.
The pronunciation and grammar of the Japanese language are fairly easy, though you do have to learn the dialect. With the way online education has come into trend, then why not study Japanese online?
