I started Japanese about 9 months ago when I moved to Tokyo for a year. I completed 6 months of courses at a language school in which I finished both Genki books. I mostly focused on becoming conversational and I’m currently working towards the N3 level.
Games seem like a good way of maintaining a decent level of exposure to Japanese once I leave the country. I’ve looked up a number of discussions online about this. They usually bring up some (J)RPGs, animal crossing or the pokemon series.
I was wondering if other learners could share their experience with regards to playing games:
- how early in your studies did you start
- was it actually beneficial
- any learning advice
Bonus question: I’m working from an old macbook pro, so any mac compatible game suggestions would be very appreciated.
Thanks for your feedback,
