Accessibility has a lot to do with learning Japanese on your own, I find. If it’s accessible, we’re more likely to do it. If it’s easy, we’re more likely to try. Well, if you have a smartphone that allows you to use apps, then you’re in luck, because studying just became that much easier.
Learning Japanese At HomeOur goal for Kanji & Tea, aside from sharing our struggles and successes, is to help provide the everyday person with all the tools necessary to learn Japanese on their own through everyday immersion.
