Tired of sounding like a textbook? or an awkward gaijin?
I break down colloquial Japanese phrases I encounter in daily life/on the internet in order to:
- highlight ready-made phrases that'll help your Japanese sound more native IMMEDIATELY; and
- explain why things are said they way they are to help you develop a sense of the language.
My name is Frances Chan; I've studied Japanese for a third of my life, have interned at Japanese companies, and am able to pass as a Japanese person when I go to Japan :) This series is something I would have enjoyed when I was an intermediate student, so I started it to help all my friends studying the language now.
