Try Nakama 1 by Hatasa. I used it when I started learning Japanese and the text is so clear that I didn't even need to go to class to learn :) It starts in English but quickly teaches you Hiragana, Katakana, and some basic Kanji as you progress through the text. There is also a workbook that accompanies it which will help you understand the grammar and give you pages for writing practice. I recommend it whole-heartedly, and even after 3 years of studying I still keep that text at home 👍

Absolutely Chrono. It is written with the assumption that you don't know a single thing about the Japanese language, and it will get you off the ground fast but not overwhelm you. In my opinion it is a great purchase for any new student. I would get the workbook too if you intend to self study.


BTW: I love your avatar :D

There are two books that go with this right? I just got the work book but I think I was supposed to get another one as well... unless I can find somewhere to decipher everything in this book :emoji_thinking: I guess I'll have to go order the other one, when I went to order it the first time the guy seemed a bit confused so I guess he wasn't sure what to order.
