Just keep listening and listening until you understand. It might not make any sense in the beginning but when you keep listening to it for thousands of hours, it will start making sense. Always remember, all of us learn any language by imitating, and when we listen to anything, again and again, our imitation intuition goes to the next level.

2. Go crazy after the news sources in the Japanese language

You start visualizing them as if they were happening in front of your eyes. You have to act like a fanatic after Japanese-language news sources.

With the high-definition audio recording along with text (complete with furigana, definitions, and some word filtering tools), the process of understanding and learning the Japanese language will become a breeze for the language enthusiast in you.

3. Don’t just learn, enjoy the learning process

Enjoying the process of whatever you are doing is the very first step to accomplishing any task with joy and happiness. In case you are lacking in certain strengths or have a bunch of weaknesses, stay firm and start exploiting them to serve the purpose of Japanese learning. Whether you are a sports enthusiast, a video game admirer, or a movie buff, whatever you do, do only in the Japanese language. Watch Japanese movies, sports channels, and other pieces of stuff as much as you can. There are OTT platforms and even television channels that broadcast movies in the Japanese language with subtitles. Going even beyond, you can keep listening to Japanese language music while going for a morning walk every day.  

4. Keep Japanese active in your brain without any strain

As stated at the very outset that learning the Japanese language is a little bit more difficult than learning any other language. During the process, you might come across phases wherein you might feel completely burnt out. In effect, the Japanese language has the power to fry your brain completely while you make efforts to learn it. But, all things said and done, you don’t have to let the strain of Japanese learning overpower you at all.

While you make all-out efforts to learn the Japanese language through various sources including digital and conventional, you have to keep in mind that when your brain is already tired due to any specific or unspecific reason, you need to change the source. For example, if textbooks or PDFs are boring you sometimes, then you need to take a different route. Go for animation or any thriller genre movie which will help you keep your interest in the Japanese language always up. This approach will keep Japanese always active in your brain.

5. Make use of Google Image Search to get the meaning of particular words
