We compiled the results of a survey about Japanese language learning into a 11-page PDF (822k). Whether you have already studied Japanese for some time or are just about to get started, these snippets of wisdom are surely going to be helpful! We also have a more in-depth version available – just email us if you would like to read it.
“Without good Japanese (spoken, written and body language) you will never be able to understand Japanese people’s feelings and opinions, and issues people face in society.” (from a participant in the survey)
Here are the five questions that are answered in the survey:
-How have you primarily learned Japanese?
-As a missionary, practically speaking, how important would you say that it is to learn to speak Japanese?
-How has your Japanese language ability helped you to minister to Japanese people?
-What advice would you give to a new missionary who is a beginner-level student of Japanese?
-Do you have any practical tips for learning Japanese?
