Japanese on a Dime?

Sometimes I like to look creepy. Unless it's just me thinking that. Then never mind.

おっす、何かあった?ブレントでございます。

Have you been struggling to learn another language? Have you tried countless programs, and still can’t order a cup of coffee? I know that feeling. I’m that dorky-looking guy to the right. I’ve been “studying” Japanese for technically 5 years, but it’s been more like 1 year if you count my immersion time.  But, I have great news. You can learn a second language, and you can do it being technically as lazy as possible.

No, I’m not promising a little pill or a program that will make you fluent in a week. That’s silly, and they never work. You will still have to do some “studying”, but I’m going to do most of the heavy lifting for you. I’m still trying to perfect my Japanese, but it’s definitely better than before, and it’s because I finally went about it the right way.

People say that children learn languages way easier because they’re like little sponges. But, if you really think about it, it takes a child over 8 years to speak a language understandably, and they still have to go to school to learn it well! Children learn languages because of a simple fact: They don’t care about failing. And I’m going to help you do the same.

 

My name is Brent, and I’m a big, ol’ dork. I like to watch Japanese dramas, love Super Sentai, and I write and draw for a living. I have started to begin freelance translating, and in general, I’m a pretty okay guy. However, I really like the Japanese language, and I’ve always wanted to be able to speak it. I want to be able to go to Japan and just spend a weekend hanging out in Akihabara, honestly. But, enough about me, I want to tell you more about my site.

 

Basically, you can consider this a Japanese learning resource, along with a motivational blog. I pretty much just write about what I can, but I do have a schedule that I will be adhering to, in between my clients.

Mon:    Kanji/Radical Journey
Tue:     Japanese in Action
Wed:    Off-Day
Thu:     Song of the Week
Fri:       Resources
Sat:      Off-Day
Sun:     Motivational Post/Song Breakdown

On top of this, I will be releasing sentence packs, along with other awesome stuff to help you out with your goals of learning Japanese. Pretty much, I’m here to lend a helping hand for those that finally want to learn another language, and that’s what I’m here for.
