We are here to help
Here are a few quick answers to common questions. See our support site for additional help.
Japanese is among the most difficult languages for English speakers to learn, for both grammatical and cultural reasons. We suggest learning as many kanji as possible. Kanji are the Chinese characters that comprise the heart of the Japanese writing system.
The merits of learning kanji are many: first, Japanese are generally impressed when gaijin (foreigners) know any kanji, which speaks to a person's interest in learning something deep about the culture; second, kanji is everywhere in Japan, so you'll have many opportunities for interaction with Japanese - you can start a conversation virtually anywhere by asking Japanese how to read the characters; and, third, learning kanji involves the simplest and most fundamental process of rote memorization and therefore can be done with flashcards, nothing fancy, no expensive gimmicks necessary.
It generally takes years to achieve fluency in polite, business-level Japanese. However, after only a few months of intensive study one can become able to use the language in a great variety of everyday situations; such as, meeting people, shopping, dining out, and booking hotel reservations.
We ship everywhere except for Indonesia, Vietnam, and most African countries (but we do ship to South Africa) Please also note that we cannot ship candy and snacks to Brazil due to import restrictions. Other import restrictions may apply too.
