A lesson for beginners – Days of the week in Japanese. I have fond memories of when I first started learning Japanese. For me, the Japanese language seemed so cultured and mysterious. I found it very attracting and desperately wanted to learn. Yet, learning the basics wasn’t easy. Just trying to learn the days of the week seemed like a challenge. Eventually, I discovered that the more I studied the easier it became for me to retain words and progress. But those early days were hard. Getting my head around the backwards grammar, polite Keigo language and those long greetings took quite a lot of study and effort.
I think the hardest aspect to learning the Japanese language is breaking through what I call the “basics threshold”. Most people stop learning a language because they feel that they are not progressing. The basics overwhelm them and they give up. So if you are struggling with the basics of Japanese DON’T GIVE UP. Persist and study everyday for a few more months and you’ll be surprised by how much your understanding of the language will improve. You must allow for some time for the old grey matter to adjust to learning a different language. Study for short periods everyday and do lots of revision to retain what you learn.
