Help regarding Japanese grammar

@Shiawase Are you still editing or can I go ahead and work on the formatting?


Please go ahead! I was just getting it going. :slight_smile:

Alright, I’ve done all I’m going to do for today. If anyone wants to change anything the light is green.


@polv You might want to check that no new edit has been made before you commit. Just refresh and see if the number of edits has gone up. You overwrote one of my edits before and @hinekidori’s right now


I am really sorry about that. BTW, I have found the way to browse through earlier version anyway.


Fixed the link again. :smile:


Ooh I think I need to fix that link, I was just adding a section while someone was updating, let me see

Don’t worry. I can add that back “View earlier versions” → raw.

Okay I see, thanks ^-^

It would be nice if you wrote reasons (click the add reason thingy over the edit text box) to your edits. I mean, seeing something like “Added a manga section” would be cool.


I love this. Thanks so much for compiling this into one place!


Yeah, I agree. I just did a small update and it helps to quickly track what it was.

Thank you very much for this compilation
It is of great help :smiley:


Added a few myself (and made sure to include edit reason, thanks for mentioning that!)

I don’t know where it is, but @BreadstickNinja has at least one Memrise course, I think… Might’ve been a grammar one.
(I haven’t delved into Memrise at all, myself… but I’ve seen it mentioned/linked before…)

For the Youtube section, there was a big list of channels someone made in the past, archived now:

Maybe a bit extensive to add to this list, but I don’t want to pick which ones to add since I haven’t really watched any of them. :slight_smile: Thought I’d link it though if anyone’s interested

This one: HELLO ワニカニ拡張パック - by まゆっち - Memrise
There’s also this one: HELLO 単語 - by まゆっち - Memrise

Also @namste gave some good recommendations in the recent JLPT Listening thread for some Japanese Let’s Play people. Not sure if we want to link those, or point to that thread/post…???

I’m thinking of adding an Android App (game) now.

EDIT: Editing done. Not 100% sure if that description is accurate enough for Kanji Connect.

rfindley recommends 80/20Japanese.

It is a paid service.

I also listed some other ones a while ago. I don’t think they are all mentioned here.

I’ll add those that are not listed, if no one objects.
