What is Japan-easy?

Japan-easy uses English to help you learn the basics of conversational Japanese and kanji through 15-minute programs and a website. There are two different curriculums, each with 24 episodes, which are sure to get you learning in a fun way.



The program will go over creating the question form and negative form of sentences, starting with the basic structure of Japanese. If that sounds a bit uptight, don’t worry: there are plenty of funny skits and adventures through the streets of Japan to ensure that you’ll be relaxed and having fun as you learn. There are various videos that will surely convey the marvel of words and language.
The program will mainly be aired on the third and fourth Sundays of every month.
