How to study Japanese Grammar

Japanese grammar can be very fun to learn, especially when we grasp the fundamental elements.

The basic skeletal structure of every Japanese sentence.
  1. Create your own examples from grammar constructions you learn, have them checked by your teacher and native speakers.
  2. Try and use the new structure as a lens on subject matter, using it frequently. The more practice the better.
  3. Study plenty of examples to get a clear sense for what the grammar point does.
  4. Invest in a grammar reference dictionary, like the series by Makino Sensei, A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar, with Intermediate and Advanced.
  5. Keep absorbing Japanese attentively. Train your eyes, train your ears, and train your sensitivity to new grammar.
