Retrain Your Brain

Is it hard to learn Japanese?

Japanese uses SOV (Subject Object Verb) sentence structure which differs from English SVO (Subject Verb Object) so it takes skillful practice to retrain your brain. Additionally, Japanese has a phonetic alphabet (71+ Hiragana) as well as an ideographic collection of glyphs (2000+ Kanji) that take special effort to master, but you can be highly effective with just the main Hiragana and the most frequent 777 kanji.

  • For speaking in Japanese kanji are not necessary, but for reading subtitles or understanding which terms are being used, it's necessary to know some kanji.
  • For writing in Japanese everything can be done in the phonetic Hiragana, although kanji help add nuance and avoid confusion as they add specific semantic meaning.
