January 8th, 2009

The Japanese language is a unique and beautiful language. There are approximately 120 million people living in Japan, with more than 99% of the population speaking the language. However, the language is rarely spoken outside the countries, only probably in some parts of the world such as Hawaii, Japanese born in America, some Chinese and Korean who happens to live under Japanese occupation earlier this century.

It is believed that the Japanese language was linked to the Altaic languages such as Turkish and Mongolian. It has been widely acknowledge that its syntactic is somehow or rather similar to the Korean language. Some also believed that the language shows similarities to the Malayo-Polynesian languages to the south. The Japanese writing is made up of Kanji, Hiragana and Katakana.

As you study your Japanese vocabulary, concentrate on proper pronunciation. Repeat each word out loud as you practice pronouncing it correctly. Then try to link the Japanese pronunciation to an English word. For example, if the Japanese word you’re learning is kau (cow) – to buy, then concentrate on linking the sound kau to the word cow. As your brain forms these associations, you’re learning, even though it may not feel like it at first.

The second step in learning Japanese fast is to link these sounds with images. Imagine the English pronunciation linked with the Japanese meaning in some way. Come up with an image that uses both words, but is unique enough to stand out in your mind. For this example, you might clearly picture a cow buying something in a supermarket. Really use your imagination for this part of the memorization process. Picture the cow in the store, picking out groceries, pushing a cart with a calf in the front seat, and so on. As you do you are leaving multiple connections in your brain, making it easier for you to recall this vocabulary word when you need it.

Concentrate on this image for 10-15 seconds. Focus on the image, and on the connection between each word that makes up the picture you’re imagining. Make a note of your image on your list of vocabulary words or flash cards. Each time you study your Japanese vocabulary, recall the image in as much detail as possible. Really focus on using the power of your imagination to increase your language skills. This will enable you to learn Japanese fast, but it also applies to other languages as well.
