Minna no Nihongo Book Download

I believe most should look for free Minna no Nihongo book downloads. Unfortunately Suki Desu does not support piracy and strongly recommends using a physical version of the book for the best Japanese learning experience. Especially if you're a procrastinator like me, who downloads stuff and never even opens it.

with the book Minna on the table or bedside table in your room will be easier to open and study, in addition to sketching and writing notes and exercises. We also recommend using the book together with a spaced repeat program and with RTK method.

The important thing is not to be stuck with just one book, we strongly recommend looking for different study methods, and if you want to use the internet and the computer to study, books are not the best option. Maybe you want to try learning tools like desu and the anki.
