Tae Kim's "Guide to Japanese Grammar" Video Series

#1
Drawn from YouTube Livestream Archives, this video series is my coverage of Tae Kim's Guide to Japanese using both his website and the four part Memrise course series developed off of his example sentences spreadsheet. Each video covers an individual lesson to include vocabulary on Memrise, the lesson proper on Tae Kim's website, and the example grammar sentences on Memrise.

Nice! Thanks for this. I've actually been using his site as a starting point for learning the Grammar, but this will help immensely!

Honestly hope it helps. Yeah, it's just me reading from a webpage or reciting the Memrise preview cards, but that might be what a few people actually needs to make this stuff finally click. 

Anyway, I edited the first post to put the last three videos in the list. I also included more descriptive hyperlinks.

Hey Nukemarine!

What do you think: Should I just go through your Memrise Tae Kim courses? I honestly do not understand how can I put these videos into use for my own studies?

Thanks!

If you have your own path to study, stick to that. This course is just Tae Kim, but with a recording of me going over it along with my Memrise course. It doesn't improve on anything Genki or Imabi have available if that's what you're using.
