The Japan Foundation has launched a website focused on teaching the Japanese language to foreigners using anime and manga. The site launched on Feb. 1.
While hardly the first to attempt this (many other tries at this have had various results), The Japan Foundation is dedicated to spreading Japanese language knowledge, are the administrators of the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) and run several language and cultural institutes outside of Japan – meaning if they take on a project like this, it’s likely worth noting.
The website isn’t fully online yet, but several of the sites features can be accessed now.
J Geeks editorial prediction: Anyone thinking this alone will teach you Japanese is probably mistaken, but it will likely serve one more valuable resource for learners of the language.
