  1. Just fyi the word for water has more of a "z" sound mizu. Right now you are saying is this "miso" which is like a soup. Good luck.

  2. I'm going to learn (Modern Standard Arabic). My plan of attack is as follows: First do the (living language arabic complete edition) course. Then do the (Arabic course for english speaking student, book 1-3. From the Madinah Islamic University) while also listening to arabic on lingq app while at work. And after finishing the Madinah course, i'm just going to use lingq. I'm also going to use the internet such as youtube, google and so on… From beginning to end.
    I should be able to get atleast 1h aday inn on the courses, and as much as 0-7h on audio while working.

  3. Hajime Mashite ! Wow, I’m a Japanese and I started learning French recently! Btw, Miso is soybeans paste. Water is MiZu 🙂 Gambatte!

  4. I'm Filipino and I speak Tagalog, Bisaya, (a lil bit) Spanish and Portuguese, (a lil bit) Malay and Indonesian, Kamayo, Hiligaynon, and Kiniray-a

  5. That's nice. I can speak and understand Hindi, Urdu and English. Learning Arabic for about 3 years and after second week of June I will be starting with Spanish.
    Good luck for your Japanese

  6. Since in Japanese there is no consonant stand by his self except for "N" so you should've pronounce your name "my coo" 😄

  7. في قناتي يوجد فديوهات تعليم اللغة اليابانية للعرب ربما تعجبك !

  8. Btw., the most effective way to learn how to pronounce Japanese, is to watch Anime in Japanese (with subtitles). That will give a broad library of reference-pronounciations. Please try it.

  9. I order to get the vowel sound pronunciation right, you need to learn the standard a i u e o in Japanese. All "a" sounds will be pronounced like "ah". All "i" sounds will be pronounced like the "ee" in "sleep". All "u" sounds will be pronounced like "oo" in "super". All "e" sounds will be pronounced like "eh" in "empire". All "o" sounds will be pronounced like "oh" in "opening".

    Then all Japanese sounds will follow suit in punctuation.
    A e u e o
    Ra ri ru re ro
    Ma mi mu me mo
    Ta chi tsu te to
    Na ni nu ne no
    Ka ki ku ke ko
    Sa shi su se so
    Ha hi hu he ho
    Ya yu yo
    Wa
    N

  10. Don't pressure yourself into trying to become fluent in a really short amount of time, just take your time and we'll appreciate whatever progress you've made nonetheless!
    Btw learning the letters will help you with your pronunciation, and you can finish the hiragana and katakana in one day each! And you should try giving Memrise a try, it's a great app/website which helps with learning the letters, kanji, frequently used vocab, and even pronunciation.
    Personally it helped me a lot with kanji.

  11. أنا طالب ياباني و ادرس العربي.
    أنا متأثر و مفرح جدا أنك ابتداء اللغة اليابانية!

  12. It's amazing you learn another language! I know little bit japanese and arabic. I think the "sa" sound in "sayounara" is more like س sound. And the "r" sound is between ر د and ل sound.

  13. You learned a lot! Don't give up🙇.Note: Japanese is quite syllabic and has a rythem that is almost leveled or balanced rather than kinda smooth to bumpy and melodic compared in Arabic. There's a lot of characters to hiragana and katakana but you'll get used to it because they're all quite similar. Being familiar with the sounds and having basic phrases/vocab in mind is a great start. The grammar and kanji could be mind thumping at times but think of it as like a grumpy dog that you learned to understand and deal with 😂. Enjoy the ride we believe in you!
