I'm doing it with confidence in my own time, settings, and more important in the way I want it to do it, without pressure and having fun at the same time."



Japanese Facts

Japanese is spoken by about 125 million speakers, primarily in Japan, where it is the national language. The largest Japanese immigrant community is in Brazil.

There are no weight divisions in professional sumo wrestling, and it's not uncommon for one wrestler to weigh twice as much as his opponent. The winner of a match is either the first wrestler to force his opponent to step out of the ring, or the first wrestler to force his opponent to touch the ground with any part of his body other than the bottom of his feet.

Why Should You Learn Japanese?

Learn Japanese and gain access to the second-largest economy in the world and the third most-used language on the Internet, after English and Chinese.

The Japanese language and its history.

Japanese isn't directly connected with or descended from any particular language group, making it a unique and sometimes difficult language to learn. Those who intend to learn the language may be further daunted by the fact that the Japanese language has no fewer than four writing styles: hiragana, katakana, kanji, and in modern Japanese, Rōmaji, which are Roman letters used to write non-Japanese words. What may ease your nerves, dear learner, is that when you do find yourself in Japan, whether for business or pleasure, English is the only other language that's taught in Japan, and it's compulsory starting from 5th grade.

Visit Japan and experience some of the loveliest cultural traditions in the world. From peaceful Zen gardens perfect for a bit of introspection, to the booming fun of traditional festival drums, called taiko, the Japanese people are known for their delicate and dedicated attention to detail. Experience the centuries-old and precision-laden practice of chanoyu, the ceremonial tea service primarily influenced by ancient practitioners of Zen Buddhism. For the foodies who are reading, Japanese cities have been awarded more Michelin stars than anywhere else in the world. (Yum!)

Interesting and encouraging facts about the Japanese language.

  • Like English, Japanese words have no gender (perhaps making it an easier language to learn than Romance Languages such as French, Spanish, and Italian)
  • The use of articles isn't as prolific as it is in English, and that's because there's no singular or plural assigned to words. For example, tomodachi can mean a friend, friends, the friend, and so on.
  • Loan words are abundant in Japanese, so you'll have a head start if you listen up. Beer=bīru; beach=bīchi; take out (as in takeout food)=teiku auto.

A new approach to learning Japanese.

The Japanese language has a word for "death from overwork," karoshi. With Rosetta Stone® Japanese you won't need to incorporate this word into your vernacular. You'll begin to speak immediately and will have the help of our Japanese tutors who'll help you gain confidence in this ancient and lovely language.
