Japanese can be a mystifying language. It’s just so different to most other languages that even just deciding how to learn it can seem overwhelming… but it doesn’t have to be.

“Wait, what?” you may say.
“I made the superhuman effort of clicking on all of two links to find your blog and discover the trick to learn a language real fast, and now you tell me Failure and I have to be chums? You fraud!”
