I'm not paid to do this, and I am not affiliated with either Steam or the game producer. I'm just a happy customer sharing information about a useful product I found.


I found something useful on Steam and though about sharing it with people, who at least consider learning Japanese:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/438270/Learn_Japanese_To_Survive_Hiragana_Battle/
http://store.steampowered.com/app/554600/Learn_Japanese_To_Survive_Katakana_War/

Mind you, it's not a full training course, just game-courses to learn Hiragana and Katakana. You can learn either on your own and for free, if you can figure out a learning method that suits you. This simply makes it a bit easier for people who have trouble concentrating on learning new alphabets.

You'll still have to figure a way to learn Kanji and learn about the systems of reading the Kanji, the Japanese and the Chinese system, since both are used in Japanese.

But, it's a start.

Good luck

I played the Hiragana one and own the Katakana one but haven't got around to playing it. The Hiragana one is actually pretty good. It's not the best old school RPG I've ever played but it's actually decent enough mechanically to be fun while still being educational. Plus, it's not overly long so it doesn't wear out its welcome.
