Welcome to the Starter Kit!

Here you will find a lot of basic information on Japanese. This is not the definitive guide to Japanese, but it is enough for someone who is new to Japanese.

We have many posts on grammar and linguistics, which we hope you will look through as well. But even if you don’t, our lessons do a good job at describing things, so you shouldn’t too lost.

What I would suggest is that you look at the anime lessons, read through everything, and come back here when you’re really lost. And if still things do not click, tell us in the comments page!
