Hey! I make videos on Japanese and English expressions and I also make those meanings very clear to learners on my blog.
I’m very passionate about this so I want to share as much as I know or will know. By signing up there will be a link to a discord with people who want to language exchange in Japanese and English. There you will find the book for free to download. If you like the book please leave a review so I can make the next book even better. I appreciate the ones that do this and I’ll add those reviews to my latest video.
