New to Japanese? New to the sub? Read the Wiki!

Welcome to /r/LearnJapanese, the hub on Reddit for learners of the Japanese Language.


1. If you are new to learning Japanese, read the Starter's Guide. Check to see if your question has been addressed before posting by searching or reading the wiki. Not doing so falls under 'Low effort' (see rule 7).

2. State your question clearly in your post title

3. Consider the OP's skill level when answering a question

4. Do not guess or attempt to answer questions beyond your own knowledge

5. Remember that answers here are not guaranteed to be 100% accurate

6. Trolling, immature, or hostile behavior will result in a warning or ban

7. The following will result in post removal:

  • Asking "How do I learn Japanese?" or "What should I learn next?" and other duplicate enquiries without reading the wiki pages
  • Translation requests (asking for help with your own translation is fine)
  • Requests for, or links to copyrighted content
  • Tech support questions
  • Memes/image macros
  • "Low-effort" posts (e.g. some random Japanese you took a picture of)

8. Content creators wishing to advertise must contact the mods first.

9. Mods have the final say in all decisions.

This is not the full list of rules. Please also read the full list of rules on the wiki.
