Christmas Carols - “Jingle Bell”  ジングルベル in Japanese

Although the religious dimension of Christmas may not be well understood by the majority of Japanese people, Christmas Carols クリスマスキャロル such as “Silent night” きよしこの夜, “Jingle Bells” ジングルベル, “The Twelve Days of Christmas” クリスマスの12日 are heard across Japan in Christmas time. For Japanese language learners the lyrics of these carols are a great occasion to learn Japanese vocabulary and to encourage to practice pronunciation.

Best ways for learning Japanese

If you're going to learn Japanese, you might as well do it right. Here's some good ways to achieve this in my experience.

Learning Japanese

Japanese is a gō!
Start learning with JapcoEducation, because it's effective.

Textbooks, apps, MOOC platforms, YouTube videos, even those tapes you're supposed to absorb when you do your sleeping - none are remotely as effective for learning a complex language as working regularly with a qualified teacher.

Japco multiplies this effectiveness by turning classes into tutorials and brining an online platform as an add-on and not replacement.
