Does your lack of verbs stop you from expressing yourself confidently in Japanese
Do you regularly find yourself stumbling over verb conjugations and just “having a guess” which form to use?
You’re not alone!
Japanese learners the world over have a hard time mastering enough verbs to express themselves like intelligent adults in real-life, “non-scripted” conversations.
You’re stuck in the dreaded “quicksand” of basic Japanese.
You can hold your own and manage reasonably well in Japanese in certain basic situations….
… but when it comes to maintaining real, spontaneous conversations on a diverse range of topics… you simply can’t keep up or express yourself clearly!
The prime culprit: Japanese verbs.
Verbs are the most important building block of any language because we use them to express actions.
In Japanese, they’re especially important. You literally can’t form a single Japanese sentence without verbs.
So anything other than a rock-solid knowledge of a wide-range of Japanese verbs ain’t gonna cut the mustard.
I don’t mean the basic verbs like する (suru – to do), です (desu - to be) and 行く (iku - to go) that you know inside out.
I mean more nuanced verbs like:
- 遅れる (okureru - to be late)
- なる (naru - to become)
- 睨む (niramu - to keep an eye on)
- 覚える (oboeru - to remember)
- およぶ and とどく (oyobu and todoku - to reach)
- ... and many more!
Here’s the truth:
These are the verbs that really unlock your speaking and bring life to your Japanese conversations.
Because they allow you to express yourself in a more eloquent and nuanced way, and in a wider variety of situations.
That’s why I’ve created this unique 30-Day Challenge - “101 Essential Japanese Verbs”.
This challenge will help you master 101 essential Japanese verbs in all tenses in just 30 days, so you can express yourself confidently in Japanese in any context!
No more frustrating silences.
No more embarrassing verb conjugation mistakes.
And most importantly… no more “surface-level only” Japanese conversations.
By the end of this challenge, you’ll be armed with a wide range of Japanese verbs and know how to use them confidently in any verb tense, so you can start enjoying truly meaningful conversations with native Japanese speakers, no matter the context.
Introducing the June Challenge:
"101 Essential Japanese Verbs"
Here’s how the challenge works.
The challenge is based on an exciting original story in Japanese that develops over the 30 days of the challenge.
This is a brand new story, written exclusively for this 30-Day Challenge.
We’ve created the story to be jam-packed with hundreds of examples of the most important Japanese verbs in ALL tenses.
Every day, you’ll receive one new chapter of the story, along with an insightful video lesson and simple exercises to help you understand how these Japanese verbs work in the story.
It'll take you about 15 minutes each day.
All you have to do is show up every day…
Over the course of the month, the daily immersion will help you absorb 101 fluency-boosting Japanese verbs naturally, until they just “sound right” and you can use them instinctively and confidently to bring life to your spoken Japanese.
The result is that you'll be able to speak and understand Japanese confidently without worrying about making mistakes or getting stuck for words.
You’ll be able to speak Japanese more freedom and fluency, because the verbs you need will already be where you need them - on the tip of your tongue!
Here's What's Included...
The concept is beautifully simple!
Every day, for 30 days, you’ll get:
- One 250-word chapter of our Japanese story (jam-packed with examples of essential Japanese verbs in context)
