    Take a college class. Learning on your own will not help your pronunciation or listening comprehension much. Also, being in a classroom setting will help motivate you (as you're being graded) and will help retain more of the language because you'll be using it ALL THE TIME.

    1. Dude, I'm not a dude.

    2. I live in California as well, and I know for a fact that UCLA offers Japenese classes.

    Then learn how to type it. Or write it, or whatever the hell you call it.

    As for learning Japanese, a friend of mine got a huge pack of stuff from a bookstore on how to learn the language, and that included cds, dvds, books and what not, and still she doesn't know very much. If you want to truly learn it, I recommend finding someone who actually knows the language very well and can help you.

    As if I would tell on the interwbs.

    But if you can't get into UCLA, how about hanging around Lil Tokyo? I'm sure you could find someone willing to teach there.

    Possible, but you will be lacking in some areas of the language.

    Oh, I saw a store less than a year ago that sold books on how to read Japanese and how to write in Hiragana and Katakana. I can't remember the store's name, right now, but I think I have the bag still with me somewhere! Once I find the name, look online or in a phone book to see if the store is anywhere near where you live.

    Trust me on this one. My friend got the instruction booklets, and now she's the best (and only) person to go to for a translation. Well, in my school, that is. xD

    But it also takes dedication, so... Are you absolutely willing to learn this, and not give up on it half-way through?

    Huh. That's pretty stupid, entirely giving up your initial language. How will you converse with your mother?

    Anyway, I'm off to forage in my closet of doom.

    -.Success in the closet!.-
    Alright. The store is called Tokyo Kid. The website from the bag is as follows: http://www.tokyokid.com

    Now, I haven't been on the site before, so you're on your own once you access the website. Good luck finding a location near you! =D

    The thing is, not many people are going to know the title of a good DVD that will teach you Japanese simply because I doubt that's how many people on this forum have learned the language. You say that you "really really" want to learn Japanese, but I don't honestly think a DVD will help you.

    For example, I am fluent in French because I have been learning it in school for the past 10 years, but I have to admit that I still have some areas to improve upon, some things I need to learn, etc. That's 10 years or reading writing and speaking French almost everyday, and I'm still not as good as I should be. x_X but anyway.

    While on vacation, I heard an ad on a radio station in America earlier this year that talked about CD sets that would help you "master French" in just a few weeks, through listening to this CD and repeating the phrases. It said "you can be fluent in French without doing "boring memorization" and "complex verb conjugation over and over". I laughed out loud when I heard this commercial because you cannot possibly "master French" while skipping the ESSENTIALS of the language.

    I think that similar Japanese self teaching CDs and DVDs may very well be the same - while they could be could for learning pronunciation, I would not rely solely on a DVD to learn Japanese. While they might give useful phrases, I doubt they go over the grammar, the verbs, sentence structure, particles, kanji, etc. in an in-depth manner.

    I myself am largely self taught in Japanese, but I've learned as much as I have through EXTREME determination (I don't think I've ever been so eager to learn something XD) as well as through books, articles, kanji memorization, etc. I taught myself how to write hiragana and katakana when I was 13 years old, and it all sort of took off from there. I don't watch/seldom watch anime, so I learned pronunciation and speaking styles through the news, some dramas, interviews, songs, and the like. I also signed up on the Japanese cyworld and made friends on there, it's great to practice writing and typing Japanese and you can talk to some awesome people.

    I plan on taking Japanese courses when I go to university - I saw a poster at my school that showed free language lessons for like, 30 languages, including Japanese as part of after-school and weekend programs held in schools around the city, but sadly I didn't write down the info and haven't been able to find out about/register for the program ever since. x_X

    I think it's okay though, because while I don't mean to be boastful, I feel that there isn't alot I would learn from an absolute beginner class that I don't already know. Self study is actually a big help, YES, it can work, but you need to really have a passion for what you're learning in order to suceed. ^_^
