I was in Chicago a couple weeks ago. There's a good Japanese bookstore there. I bought, among other things, a copy of なにげにてごわい日本語. It's the second volume in a series about Japanese grammar written for a target audience of Japanese natives. But I've found this book helpful. (the other book is 日本語てにをはルール, which I've yet to acquire)

A quick look at sample chapter titles:

Here's an excerpt from the first chapter:

生徒:先週末に博物館に行ったら「美術品【を】触らな いでください」って書いてありました。でも、前に行っ た別の博物館では「美術品【に】触らないでください」 って書いてあったんです。この2つは、どう違うんでし ょう?
教師:うん、「触る」の前の「を」と「に」の違いだね 。どう違うのか分かるかな?
The book goes on to explain that, in this situation, the を is more direct, while the に is a softer expression and less direct. It talks about nuances and gives other examples.

The next chapter talks about に vs と in certain constructions, using the nuanced differences between 〜さんに会う and 〜さんと会う as an illustration.

It's pretty awesome.

Can I introduce Nihongo Master? - 09-19-2017, 12:40 AM

Hey all! I'm also a student of Japanese. When I traveled to Japan, I returned home and wanted to continue my studies. I'm a software engineer so I started making a site and now a lot of other students use the site. Thankfully, I have a native Japanese instructor who writes out the lessons.

It's amazing, because quite a few people have passed their JLPT exams using my tool so I'm pretty happy with it.

It's Nihongo Master where you can learn japanese online. There's lessons, tools and a pretty solid community as well.

What's really useful is the study lists I've created and other members. So for example, there's the Joyo Kanji List. So if you learn every kanji on there, you're going to have an easy time inferring the meaning of current written publications in Japan.

There's quite a few other resources on the site too including a chat where you can practice writing your Japanese with others.

Disclaimer: There's a good deal of stuff that's available for free right when you sign on. But I need to keep the server hamsters fed so access to some of the more advanced lessons are for paying people. However, there's plenty to get started to see if learning Japanese is really for you or not.
