Erin ga Chosen (Erin’s Challenge) is a free multimedia Japanese course designed by Japan Foundation, the organization in charge of spreading Japanese culture and language all over the globe. There is no need to register to use this website, although doing so is a bonus because it opens up all the benefits of this site, as well as the possibility of recording your own progress.
Each lesson carries a main video that you can see with modifiable subtitles: for example, if you know hiragana and would like to leap forward into learning kanji, you can make it so the subtitles come up like that. Inversely, if you’re only starting out and want the subtitles in your own language and romaji (to get used to the sounds), you can also set it up. Additionally, all lessons carry a cultural tidbit, explanations, word lists, and interactive games.Go to site
