When you wake up in the morning.

This is another trick that I used to learn Japanese and you can use it too.
 

You know in a morning and you wake up, you think to yourself "What time is it? Quick, I've got to get a shower, then some breakfast, then that meeting at 9 o'clock".Well, I used to do that in Japanese.
 

Take a bit of time to figure out the things you want to say, learn them and then use them every day.
 

The best thing about this idea is that even if you make mistakes no-one will ever hear them!
 

If you find one day that you want to say something and you don't know how to say it in English, just look it up. Either use your electronic dictionary or ask a teacher or friend.
 

Don't use katakana.

CDs are always better than books to study from as you can hear the right pronunciation.
 

If you see new words in a book, it can be difficult to know how to say them.
 

However some books use katakana symbols to show the reading. Katakana is Japanese, not English.
 

If you see a word in katakana, It's not English but Japanese Gairaigo.
 

The problem is not R or L, the problem is that there are too many syllables in katakana.
 

It gets too confusing to understand. No-one will understand you if you learn English through katakana. Well, actually if the other person speaks Japanese they will understand. But if they speak Japanese, you don't need English, do you!
 

You want to be able to speak English to people who don't speak Japanese, right?
 

Some people say that katakana is close to English, so It's OK to use it.
 

They say It's a “starting point”, something to help you.
 

I say that it is simply wrong.
 

They say “but It's close to correct English”. But That's still no good. Katakana is the same, It's close to English, but It's wrong.
 

So don't use katakana, use CD or movies. Practice every day and you'll have no problems.
