What topics can I ask about here?
Japanese Language and Usage Stack Exchange is for students, teachers, and linguists wanting to discuss the finer points of the Japanese language.
Please note that certain Japanese language-related questions are off-topic on Japanese Language and Usage. In particular:
- Recommendations for learning materials, textbooks and other resources are offtopic.
- however we do have a resource list you might find useful.
- Questions about study methods or self-motivation are beyond the scope of this site.
- Direct translations are off topic. While we are very interested in helping people who are having difficulty in their study of Japanese, we are not willing to provide a translation service for cases where a simple dictionary search combined with understanding the basics of Japanese sentence construction would suffice.
If you have questions about resources, study methods, or simple translations, our chatroom has friendly fellow-learners who would be glad to offer advice or help.
If your question is not specifically on-topic for Japanese Language & Usage Stack Exchange, it may be on topic for another Stack Exchange site. If no site currently exists that will accept your question, you may commit to or propose a new site at Area51, the place where new Stack Exchange communities are democratically created.
