[Course forum] Learn Japanese with video games!

Hi there, this will be the place where I’ll post all my memrise lists based on vocabulary I found in video games. A lot of these memrise courses will be expanded upon a lot further in the future, and there will also be a lot more courses added to the list as well.

Kanji → Hiragana

English→ Japanese

are you sure that you can learn japanese solely from playing weird dating games and nintendo games

I guess so But its still a creative idea

Another creative idea is watching anime and understanding what they are saying/ read signs, e.t.c and hopefully not getting distracted by the plot

Oh no I definitely don’t think anyone’d be able to do so. This is just another way to find some fun vocabulary to learn. I just wanted to use a catchy title.

I’m doing a similar thing for Dangan Ronpa and it’s made studying a little less boring.

You may want to consider adding in levels and a section for testing on english meaning. Don’t know about anyone else but I like having the vocab broken up and to learn reading and meaning together.

Either way keep it up. Nice to see courses that cover more obscure topics.

Once I’ve finished a few of the Japanese course’s I’m currently learning from, I’ll definitely be using these courses as well, they look really helpful. :slight_smile:

Good choice :b I have spent the most time on that game so far and there’re still at least a 100 more words that will be added to it (probably even more).

I have now broken up the Legend of Zelda course into levels of 30 words each. Is that what you meant by breaking it up?

I also learned Japanese by playing games on the internet and I can say that it is really useful. How it works? When you play and see new words, you automatically look to see what they mean and start memorizing them. Your motivation is great because you have to play fast so you try to memorize the new words as soon as possible. And so, without noticing, you start to know the new language, in my case boosting in dota 2.
Has anyone on this forum done the same?
