Getting Started

“The greatest amount of wasted time is the time not getting started.” - Dawson Trotman

Believe it or not, just getting started is the hardest step. Luckily, you’ve probably made it easy on yourself. You know why you’re studying, you have a great place to study Japanese, and you’ve kept everything a secret. Also, you’ve set up your language log and you’ve come up with all possible excuses ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about them later. Really, not much should stand in your way.

So, enough “set-up.” It’s time to actually do this thing! We’re going to start off by learning about the different Japanese “alphabets” available to you, as well as a little more information on how we’re going to learn them in the coming chapters. I’m really excited for you to get started! It’s going to be a lot of fun and I think you’ll be surprised at how quickly you are able to learn using TextFugu.

By finishing this chapter, you’ve made preparations for your Japanese learning that will greatly increase your chances for sticking with it! Now it’s just up to you to put in the work, but if you want it, surely good things will end up happening!

Alrighty, the next chapter is waiting for you!
