But first a short introduction of me, Rasya.
Hi everyone! On the net, I go by with the name Nurul Rasya, you can called me Rasya. I started learning Japanese language around 8-9 months after graduating high school at Intec Education College not under the KTJ (Kumpulan Teknikal Jepun) but under PSJ (no idea what it stands for). Then, I came to Japan when I was 19 with the grace of a scholarship from one of Malaysia NGO organizations to take a degree in the Japanese language program. My batchmates and I are sent to study the language and also the cultural aspect of Japanese society and then bring the knowledge that we learned in Japan to our home country as a Japanese language teacher.
But life happened and I somehow ended up working as a normal salaryman in Tokyo. After working for 1-2 years, I quit my job and packed my bag to Malaysia because Japan working life didn’t suit me.
Anyway, when I was in 3rd year at university, I decided to create a Tumblr blog to share what I’ve learned from my Japanese language learning journey because I feel that it’s a waste if I couldn’t share it and plus I could also improve my Japanese language ability by doing so which is how this Japanese language master list is created.
I plan to create more Japanese study contents where the
Tumblr blog would be the main one (tumblr is dead y’all) so this blog is my main blog for long posts on Japanese language contents. I’m also active on Tiktok, Twitter and Instagram, so if you prefer shorter and video based contents, feel free to check out my social media below.
What kind of posts can you expect from this blog?
Pretty much everything of the knowledge and study tips that I get from years of learning Japanese. And if you’re interested to learn about living in Japan experience you can read it here.
