Practice, review or learn new vocab in Japanese

I loved the feedback I have been getting from parents. Every student is different. There are some that learns fast and some that needs to review/practice constantly. That's the purpose I've created this post. You can review the level you want and also go ahead and learn more about the level you want as well. Good luck!

Interesting sites to study Japanese


I always have students that ask me for different resources on how to study more Japanese. I love the following websites. Also, I recommend everyone to watch Japanese dramas everyday for 15 minutes. It does help to improve your listening skills and vocab review.

Grammar, listening and conversation
http://a2.marugotoweb.jp/en/conversation/lesson/?topic=1&lesson=1

My favorite Japanese drama. You will be able to practice listening and also learn more about the Japanese culture and customs.
