Marugoto A1-2 (Katsudoo & Rikai) Self-Study Course


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

In the Katsudoo section of this course, you can gain practical communication skills for everyday situations by listening to a lot of Japanese as you practice speaking. Meanwhile, in the Rikai section, you can systematically learn how Japanese is used in communication. The objective is to gain a comprehensive Japanese ability that includes reading, listening, writing, and speaking.

In this course, you can be sure to study A1 level Japanese on your own. If you want to be sure to carefully study not just conversation but also include reading and writing as well, then this course is for you!
