How to learn Japanese quickly?
In the fast-growing world that we live in today, we have more than just a development in technology, economy and globalization. We have brought a fast-moving car in society. Learning a language, no more requires a classroom. We can learn whatever language we want to just by the click of our fingers. But the question is there are over a 1000 language around the world, how long would it take to learn one? Maybe a year, 1 month, 1 week….???
Well, let’s take the example of the Japanese language. The language has a rich and authentic heritage. The roots began in the Altaic language family. This family consist of a combination of Austronesian, Portuguese, Dutch, English and heavily of Chinese. People believe that Japanese is not an easy language to learn. Well lets find out.
Can Japanese be learnt in 10 days?
Can you imagine learning a language in just 10 days? Wow, I’d definitely say that your miracle worker. When learning a language that quickly you tend to not have a strong foundation and might forget some important lessons. Many of us see advertisements and slogans which guarantee learning a language just within days. Well not to burst your enthusiasm, but the answer can be yes and no. Its always good to keep a positive attitude and understand that nothing is impossible. However, when taking on this time frame you are obligated to stick to it. But there is no guarantee of being fluent. People spend years to master a language but again, its not impossible. You will also have difficulty connecting the sentences and words in such a short span. If your goal is to achieve complete fluency, maybe a 10-day course isn’t the best.
Language learning levels
When learning any language its important to break it down. Its important to have sections where you can dedicate your time to each specific topic and not jump into another topic which you might not have understood. Levels are created keeping in mind the time frame and the relaxation time you should give your brain to let it all sink in.
