Let's Learn the Japanese Names of Foods!

Hey everybody~ If you're a member of Learn Japanese, you mayyyyy have noticed that I started posting some cards about the names of foods in Japanese.

Now here's my confession: I don't know ANY Japanese!!!!

This is my attempt to start learning by starting with something I love (foodddddzzzzzz), and I hope to move on to some other things after that! One of my Japanese friends is checking them all for me too so I know they're accurate (woohoo!)
SO! If you're interested in learning some food nouns in Japanese, go ahead and follow the collection here!
I'll say right now I won't be able to tell you if the hiragana or katakana is more natural, but I hope to learn soon!

On that note, what other kinds of things would you guys want to learn for beginning Japanese?

@poojas already does some cool cards about basic phrases so I don't want to do the same thing as her XD Let me know what you want to learn!

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sautรฉ means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
