Have a Kindle? Want to use it to learn Japanese? This eBook might be a good place to get started.
TheJapanShop has an inexpensive Kindle eBook available that will teach you Hiragana from scratch.
I highly recommend Hiragana as a starting place in your quest to learn Japanese. Once you learn to read and write Hiragana, you will literally know every single sound that can be made in the Japanese language. Most learner books that include Kanji will have the hiragana readings provided as well, so this is a critical step in the learning process. There are only 46-something Hiragana, so if you really put your mind to it, you can certainly master the Hiragana in a couple of weeks. Do it!
The book content was created by the creator of TheJapanShop.com and his Japanese wife, so you can expect that the quality is excellent.
If anyone else out there is using a Kindle to learn Japanese, I would love to hear about it! Let us know your routine in the comments below!
