Good for learning or practice kanji reading. Might as well increase vocabulary.

Very good website for SRS learning style seeker. The web is in devoloping phase so don't expect to get a complete version yet.

Plenty of resources in video format that can be used as learning platform or revision before taking the JLPT exam. The explanations are simple and nicely done. The examples and how to use certain grammar structures are also weight in. Definitely check it out before taking the JLPT exam.

Really like the style of the app. Still lacking some pedagogical aspect of it, and yet really useful for those who enjoy short and sweet lessons. The record function for reading and speaking sections is a bless.

This website is more reliable than Google Translate. If use properly can be one of the tools to master advanced Japanese kanji through reading complicated materials like Japanese newspaper, etc.

Has huge library of anime that can be used for listening practice. Listening is probably the most frustrating experience for Japanese language learners as sometimes they can be misleading and betray your expectations. With Animelon, you can be rest assure as you learn Japanese through anime and definitely a fun way to test your listening ability without frustration.

I read page by page once I finished two-year Japanese language courses in university. Improved my understanding beyond what I already learned in class. One of the writers is actually the writer of the textbook that we used in unversity. Definitely can be a bucket list for enthusiastics Japanese learners out there.

Can be used as a reference for studying Japanese level N3 and above. Most of the grammar are not necessary to pass N3 but there are there for you to digest and learn as backup. If you wish to stop once you finished N3, then having this one would be perfect for you.

If you already have beginner and intermediate one, and still want to pursue N2 and N1, then having this one is not a problem. Can be used as solely as it is for reference on JLPT. Preparing you more than enough. The vocabs are 5 times harder compared to beginner and intermediate one, so beware.

He is very nice and passionate gaijin who live in Japan with his Japanese wife. Currently, working in education industry and making YouTube videos from time to time. He is known for his pitch accent course series on his Patreon page. Definitely check it his YouTube channel for interesting and comedic dialogue/monologue/opinions on current issues in Japan.

I believe his approach on teaching and learning Japanese is a little bit different, and of course not everybody can follow it. His guide is very convenient and nicely written. Plus, it is free! Use it for supplementary resource but not main resource for your Japanese study.

I'm really interested in the way that the creator approach Japaanese as compared to conventional way of teaching and learning Japanese. As the name stated, it is "human" Japanese, a Japanese lesson specifically for ordinary human who don't know what is Japanese and how come Japanese has three writing systems. The price is reasonable and not pricy like Rosetta stone. Of course, there are also free-limited use version. So, please give it a nice try and experience it yourself.

From a glimpse of the website from the link, the process kind a complicated, but it could be a good tool to learn kanji and hopefully the developer will make it simple and user friendly.

Very nice application and a good foundation for self-learners. The highlight is the SRS system which is proven to be effective in learning foreign languages.

Decent dictionary but could be improved in terms of usability and user interface. Nevertheless, just good enough for simple usage.

Quite complete and useful website regarding Japanese grammar database. Could be used for revision, practice, and references. Recommend it for everyone.

Integrated with common textbooks. Could be a good additional information for students or learners. Viewers can explore more in depth about Japanese accent and experience it themselves through the website. Plenty of examples and samples to be explored.

Quite interesting website with plenty of historical and graphical notes on kanji. Could be used for study aid in memorizing kanji. Great resources and explanation. Definitely check it out to explore more about the context of kanji and its development.

The front page of this website shows translated manga and I'm not sure if that will somehow help learners to learn Japanese. Rather than Japanese learning source, it would fit better with Japan's popular culture or media category.

Looks very promising as one of the free Japanese learning resources. Definitely will give it a longer trial run for more in depth review and effectiveness.
