I’m going to be honest with you. I am not one of those people who likes learning languages. I find it difficult, frustrating, and, sometimes, downright humiliating.
I do, on the other hand, like eating, riding in taxis, and making friends, so, since I live in Asia, I have to buckle down and study hard.
For me, online learning is the best. I can study whenever I feel like it. I can study at my own pace, and I can focus on the topics that I find most meaningful.
If you think online learning is a good choice for you, check out Rocket Japanese. I think it’s the best option on the web.
