I'm creating a new online Japanese course at The Foreigner - Japan called Japanese 101

This is not your usual collection of useful phrases, but I'm trying to give you a thorough understanding of the Japanese language and grammar through this course.

Each new issue of The Foreigner will feature a new lesson. I've also started work on the most extensive and easy to use overview of the Japanese grammar on the internet, which I'm hoping to upload parts of soon.

Each lesson introduces a new element of Japanese grammar, while continuing to build on the previously discussed grammar. There are also vocabulary lists and translation excersises on each lesson.

Have a look, and if you have any questions or comments, you can post them on The Forum - Japan associated with the course.

P.S.
We're still looking for sponsors for the site, so we can start to make the site pay for itself. If anyone is interested in advertising on our site, please check out our sign-up form

I have decided to hold off on publishing the Japanese grammar section until it's finished. There are too many cross links to put it online section by section. This would result in many dead links. Though these dead links would be solved over time, I fear that many people would be put off when they keep ending up nowhere when clicking many of the links.

I can't say when the grammar section will go online, but I'll try to get it up as soon as possible. Preferably before the end of February 2004 (this month), but it might be later due to the sheer size of the project. (Over 70 pages.)

Japanese 101 grammar section finally online

After a long wait, now finally the first half of the Japanese grammar section is online. This section will be expanded upon over time, but in essence already deals with every aspect of the Japanese grammar.

The introduction of this section lifts Japanese 101 above the level of a mere online course, and brings it to being a reference point for those who wish to know more.

As an alternative to the grammar section of Japanese 101 I recommend TheJapanesePage.com and A Logical Japanese Grammar, though these are still far from finished.
