Marugoto A1-2 (Katsudoo) Self-Study Course


This is a course to comprehensively learn about the Japanese language and culture.

The objective of this course is to gain practical communication skills in everyday situations by listening to a lot of Japanese as you practice speaking.

This is a course for you to casually experience the Japanese language. If you're interested in the Japanese language, and want to try studying it a little, then this course is for you!

If you want to thoroughly study the language structure (written characters, vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure) and not just conversation, we recommend the Marugoto A1-2 (Katsudoo & Rikai) Self-Study Course.
