Japanese lessons on Phantom River Stone

Postby Switch » Wed May 09, 2018 12:49 am

For any players of Shenmue who are inquisitive or have been inspired to find out more about the Japanese language, we are starting up a new series on Phantom River Stone called "Learn Japanese through Shenmue" aimed at beginners of Japanese. It will be structured around scenes and dialogue from Shenmue to add interest to the process of learning about the language. I hope you'll follow along and have fun.

The first lesson is available right now for blog patrons, and by the end of the month on the main blog for the public release.

Here's a little teaser...

That's a great aim. A good thing about the JLPT is that it helps give motivation to study, and you can buy study books on what's covered at each level.
