February is 2月 in Japanese, but also called 如月 (kisaragi), and alternatively written 衣更着 (kisaragi) in old calenders. 衣 means clothes, 更 means moreover, and 着 means wear. February is the month to put on more clothes against the cold weather.

Now Introducing: Guided FluentU Japanese Courses for Newbie and Elementary Learners

When you’re done watching those adorable new “とっとこハム太郎” (“Hamtaro”) videos on FluentU, I’ve got some news to share with you.

There are 20 new course playlists available on FluentU Japanese, all fresh out of the oven!

They cover everything from simple greetings and sentence structure to various verb tenses, negation, etiquette and office-ready Japanese.

We’re pretty excited—it’s a fantastic new way to nail down all the basics of the Japanese language.

They do a darn good job of targeting all the basics of beginner Japanese, so everyone ranging from complete newbie to lower-intermediate will find the structure and support they need to really reinforce essential lessons.

It’s perfect if you know zero Japanese, if you feel a bit wobbly on some of the basics underlying more advanced lessons or if you’ve been grazing around different levels of videos and aren’t sure where to get started.

No matter what level of Japanese you’re at—unless, perhaps, you are already reading “源氏物語” (げんじものがたり – The Tale of Genji) unabridged in Japanese—then these courses are worth checking out, even if just for a quick refresher on those all-important fundamentals.

How can so many Japanese claim to be both Shinto and Buddhist at the same time? Why to pagodas have five levels? Why don't daruma dolls have any arms or legs? Amy tells us all we need to know about Buddhism in Japan!
Today we're introducing you to the basics of Japanese Buddhism, plus highlighting some of the Buddhist images you'll see in Japan and help you distinguish them from Shinto ones.

Sweet Deal! 15 Online Language Learning Tools That’ll Make You Feel Like a Kid in a Candy Store

There’s no denying it.

Technology just makes things easier.

Did you ever have the experience of hearing a song that just blew you away…and then not being able to find out what it was?

It was frustrating, even painful. But now we have smartphones!

With the right app, your phone can tell you what’s playing in the grocery store, a hipster cafe in Brooklyn or your sibling’s car (which can be annoying when you don’t want to admit you have the same taste in music).

Unsurprisingly, technology offers the same convenience for language learners, only in a far more significant way.

It can take thousands of hours to learn a foreign language.

Obviously, that’s a lot longer than it takes to write down some lyrics and type them into Google. So there’s already a lot more potential for saved time.

But technology provides more than just time-saving resources. It provides learning opportunities where previously none were possible.

So if you’ve been feeling trapped lately, like you’re sure there’s a way out of the language maze to real fluency but you can’t seem to locate it, then here you are.

These are the language learning tools that will blow your path to success wide open.
