I started my Japanese quest January of this year and have so far loved the WaniKani learning process.
I wanted to be able to read asap and I am so impressed by the speed it enables you to learn!
(Plus I often lol on the bus on the way to work at the mnemonics during lessons/reviews and startle grumpy Londoners, which is always greatly pleasing).
I am nearing level 10 on WK now, and know that because in life I am a shy bean speaking/listening is my current greatest weakness and I want to start blasting it now.
My question to you is- what would you recommend for beginner’s listening/speaking? I have bimbled around online looking at various programs and apps including:
I have also looked around in Anki for sentence practise and have some decks installed that are…ok.
Main thing with the programs is of course £££ and what I am really asking is- are those kind of things worth it? Has anyone had any experience with these, and would you recommend?
Are there any free similar resources?
My main goal with this is to move on from sounding like a retard and to progress to the next level (child), and then attempt to speak in f2f conversations!
Thank you so much!
