Hey, what’s going on everybody?
Some of you may be familiar with Gabriel J. Pérez Irizarry who runs the Japanese language learning website koipun.com
As it turns out, he wanted to do an interview with me on learning Japanese, resources that I’ve found useful, and much more.
I think it turned out really well, and encourage you all to check it out here, along with the rest of his site.
One of the super cool things that Gabriel is doing is working on his Japanese Readers that allow you to learn the language through native video games (like Chrono Trigger) and manga (like Dragon Ball).
As I continue to not only learn Japanese myself, but learn how to learn, I believe that the sooner you can get to the point where you are engaging with native materials (usually at the intermediate level), the better off you will be.
This will allow you to learn the language from itself, which is a pretty incredible thing.
Anyway, like I said before, check out the interview to learn more, and I hope you enjoy it!
