So I have a few goals in mind when learning right now:
- be proficient in reading where I rarely have to look up words
- be able to carry on conversations well enough
- understanding the language when it’s spoken very fast (similar to 2)
I do not really want to write as that takes too much time to learn
Is there any websites that will help me with these goals? currently I use (for main study):
I think i need more websites with listening practice but im not sure what to use for that, any suggestions?
I highly recommend the “Human Japanese” apps for your study, they do a great job of explaining various grammar points, with lots of example sentences, all with audio, and a breakdown of the sentences as well.
Start with Beginner and then once you are finished that you can get Intermediate.
Reading is also a really great study tool once you have a base level, and for that you can check out Satori Reader (Same people as Human Japanese) there is a fair amount of conent there that is available for free, with audio to go with the reading so you can listen along.
I would also suggest checking out the NHK Easy news website - NEWS WEB EASY
They have news articles written in simple Japanese with Furigana.
And don’t forget Tadoku Graded readers as well, free online books for various levels of Japanese - Free books – にほんごたどく
I wolud recommend a whole lot of native material. For listening I don’t know your level but I’m enjoying https://www.youtube.com/c/Onomappu and https://www.youtube.com/c/TheRealJapanesePodcast
For reading it also depends on your level.
Consume as much media as you possibly can would be my recommendation.
