Learning Japanese grammar can seem like the most difficult and most boring task when you start learning this language. Most Japanese teachers would start by teaching you the grammar rules. That’s probably why you hated doing Japanese grammar exercises in school. We don’t blame you. We feel the same way.
Though it’s not the first thing you have to learn, knowing the Japanese grammar has its importance and sooner or later you will have to deal with it. The secret is taking courses designed to teach you grammar without the need to study endless rules. How? By absorbing the basic Japanese grammar rules while listening to natives having real conversations. That’s how kids learn. At the age of 5, kids are already fluent in their native language. How can this be? They don’t even know what a verb is at that age. It’s because they hear their parents speaking. That’s the best approach for you as well. That’s precisely how we, at Mondly, approach learning the Japanese grammar and millions of people worldwide appreciate our innovative app. By listening to natives, you will know advanced Japanese grammar rules to use in real life conversations even if you never studied the rules themselves.
Have you ever thought you could love learning grammar? Learning the Japanese grammar has to be neither boring nor hard. That’s precisely why our world-class linguists have created fun and friendly Japanese grammar lessons so you can enjoy learning Japanese.
Inside the app, you will find three different sections dedicated to learning Japanese grammar online. Each chapter consists of 7 or 8 grammar lessons that take around 5 minutes each to complete. Every lesson introduces Japanese grammar exercises where you read, listen to natives, write and speak. Rooted in science, our exercises are specially created to keep you engaged and make learning Japanese as easy and fun as possible.
We believe Japanese grammar exercises should get you ready for real-life conversations. In school, you were typically forced to memorize conjugations, pronouns, and verbs. This makes learning hard and, even after a few years, you might not be able to have a real conversation. Millions of people around the globe are in this exact situation.
That’s why our language experts created a language learning experience where you can practice Japanese grammar naturally, by building real sentences anchored in real life situations. Order food in a restaurant. Have a casual chat with a native speaker about your day. Explore ways of talking about the books you read. These are all grammar exercises created around specific themes in order to boost your learning.
Want to learn certain conjugations? With our on-demand conjugation table, you can click on verbs during any exercise, and you will be able to see their conjugations. The present, past and future tense are now all at your fingertips. What’s even better, depending on your grammar level, you can choose to learn Japanese grammar for beginners, intermediate grammar or jump to the advanced Japanese grammar exercises. No matter your level of Japanese, you will get the most out of your learning with Mondly.
The basic word order in Japanese sentences is: subject, object, and verb. The verbs are always placed last in Japanese, and even though Japanese verbs are not conjugated for person or number, verbs are generally conjugated depending on the formality levels you are using. There are three different levels of formality in the Japanese language and those are: casual, polite and formal. This makes Japanese one of the most polite language in the world and there are a lot of factors that can influence the formality level you need to use, anything from age to social status can change the way you need to speak and use Japanese.
Another significant and interesting fact about Japanese grammar is the lack of articles. There is simply no difference between 'the’, 'an', and 'a'. Although this is excellent news for non-Japanese speakers like English speakers for example, native Japanese speakers are encountering great difficulties when learning a language with articles.
Our linguists have created Japanese exercises that will feel like playing a game. The catch: you absorb the Japanese grammar effortlessly. In no time, you’ll be getting compliments from natives for your Japanese skills.
Instead of learning the hardest parts of the Japanese grammar first, we take you through a journey of the most used Japanese words and sentences. This means that you start by learning what really matters first.
Learning Japanese can sometimes feel overwhelming. That’s why we created language leaderboards to keep you motivated along the way. Play your way to Japanese by competing with friends and the entire world.
