I would love to ask you all a simple question:
Is learning from videogames a good idea when you start japanese?
I’m studying from: Genki I; WaniKani, Shadowing and flash cards.
If I’ve free time on the weekend, is playing something like Persona 4 in Japanese a bad idea for beginners?
What I mean for playing:
- Sit at my desk
- Grammar book
- Look for grammar unknown
- 30 minutes
Why I’m wondering about this?
I totally learned english with videogames (I’m not a native). When I was 13 I was able to play videogames in english, also the harder one, using the dictionary here and there. At the start I was not even able to recognize “Start”, but with a lot of patience I mastered the videogames world in english.
Learning basic grammar became very easy.
Just by studying from english stuff, I’m having not a good time with japanese.
I think that studying japanese without thinking in japanese is slowing me down so much!
I’m curious about your idea of playing videogames in japanese… someone tried it?
Thanks a lot mates!
Have a wonderful day!
