Intro to Japanese – The Hiragana Syllabary, Vowels, Pitch Accents, and More

Learning Japanese is a video series by and personal project of content-creator l3reezer that was initially suppose to be a method to refresh the knowledge of the Japanese language that he was supposed to already know for his own studies. As such, the material presented is in fact presented by, by all means, a student. To be exact, a student who had only been studying the language of Japanese for two years at the time of this video series’s conception. And a pretty bad student on record, at that. There are sure to be the occasional mishaps, mistakes and misinformation, so do always be keen on learning with your own attentive eye and mind.I look forward to continuing on with the series with videos about language as well as culture, so thank you for showing support by even just watching this one video or following along for the rest of the series.
