Particles are one of the trickier parts of Japanese grammar. In Japanese, the particle attached to another word indicates how that word is being used in the sentence. If you use the wrong particle, the whole meaning changes, and you might wind up with a quizzical look from your Japanese listener. Thankfully, there are just a few basic particles in Japanese. If you learn how to use this small number correctly, your Japanese will shine.

As with any language skill, practice and perseverance are the keys to success. Spend just a few minutes a day, every day, learning Japanese, and your Japanese skill will grow quickly. The free Japanese quizzes at Nihongo-Pro are a great addition to any Japanese study plan.

We hope you'll also consider our private Japanese lessons from our experienced Japanese teachers.

Every online Japanese school touts professional teachers, but read between the lines and you may find instructors with little or no experience. Nihongo-Pro teachers have years—over a decade, in some cases—of professional experience teaching Japanese, including experience teaching Japanese online.
