Just studying with HeyJapan for 1 hour and continuously for 2 months, you will see the difference!
>> Take 40 minutes every day to learn basic Japanese words, basic grammar, and phrases, and practice listening, speaking. Spend 20 minutes more to revise the entire lesson.
At the weekend, review all the basic words and phrases you learned during the week, and earn good badges from HeyJapan!

Learning the Japanese alphabet is the first step you need to take to conquer this interesting language.
The English writing system uses the Latin alphabet, while Japanese is hieroglyphic. Therefore, any English speakers who start to learn Japanese are surprised and quickly lose their motivation to learn from the beginning. HeyJapan helps beginners to understand basic Japanese alphabets.

It’s actually a really good app, I use it along with the infamous Duolingo. You can move much faster here and and Hey Japan has helped me a lot with kanji, pronunciation, sentence structures, and more. Love it
