Surfing through the net and just randomly searching terms, I came across Transparent Language’s website. Transparent Language provides software for learning multiple languages one of which is Japanese. Fortunately for us, you do not need to buy their software to enjoy some of the free information, games, software, and other neat things they have on their site.
For those learning how to read Japanese, I recommend you check out their articles and blog. Their articles surprisingly have the article in Japanese text (kanji, kana, and furigana) as well as a Romaji and English translation after so you may check your reading and mayhap your translating ability. Their blog is just as informative with use of kanji and sentence samples so you may understand how to create certain sentence structures. They also feature many interesting things that the Hiragana Blog I mentioned earlier does not cover such as sweet bean snacks, traditional Japanese hats, and their awesome festivals.
All in all, if you’re learning the language or just want to read up on Japanese culture, at least check out their blog with it’s smorgasbord of information, videos, and goodies since it began in 2008.
