W.T.F. Japan: Top 5 myths about learning Japanese 【Weird Top Five】

This week for my RocketNews24 W.T.F. Japan article, I wrote about the top five myths about learning Japanese. Even if you’ve never studied Japanese before and have no intention of ever studying the language, you probably still have some ideas about Japanese that are (dun dun dun!) wrong.

Having taught Japanese as a tutor for several years, I’ve encountered a lot of students coming into learning the language with a lot of preconceived notions, many of which are not true at all, and I wanted to dispel as many of them as I could with this article. The main inspiration for writing it was the #1 item, but all of them are just as prevalent and are in desperate need of being tidied up and disposed of.

Read the article here.
