    If you are so very avid about it, and have MSN, then add me as a contact and I can begin teaching you some things. I was teaching another friend of mine before he seemed to lose interest. I WILL expect you to practice by yourself and I WILL check on your progress regularly, so don't take me up unless you are committed to it.

    And if you don't have MSN, you can download it free here. My email address is listed on my profile.


    Back, by popular demand! Now with new avy.

    aha well I'm glad I inspired you~! ^^; I think it is quite a fun language to learn because it is very different from English. It's very rewarding when you can read and understand things you never thought you could, as in my case. :3 If you need any help you can ask me too, and I will try to help out as much as I can! ^_^

    I'm learning Japanese through the University I go to...I just finished Japanese 2 about 2 weeks ago and am taking Japanese 3 in September for sure and Japanese 4 in January barring course time conflicts (my school goes up to Japanese 6). The writing system is pretty easy to learn; I taught myself Katakana at about 1 hour every 2 days or so over the course of a month when I was bored at work and am learning Kanji from a textbook for Japanese 3 that I bought early. There's no Canadian distributor for the book (meaning there probably isn't an American one either) so good luck finding it (I got it through my school), but here are the details, because if you can find it, I recommend it 100%...I've used it for about a week and a half and I've already learned about 20 Kanji from it:

    Title: Basic Kanji Book Volume 1
    Authors: Chieko Kano, Yuri Shimizu, Hiroko Takenaka, Eriko Ishii
    Publisher: Bonjinsha Co. Ltd.
    ISBN: 4-89358-091-4

    As for grammar and vocabulary and stuff, you really have to take a class for that, imo, so you get practise. Reading and writing is all good, but the main focus of a language should be speaking and listening, which you can't do on your own.

    Well, Actually there is no "BEST" way to learn Japanese.
    Every person has a different way of learning. Some are more of a book learning type, Just repeating and remembering.
    Others are more of the practical type whom like to learn by reading japanese with a translation book next to them.

    Though i think it is best to learn Japanese by book/Internet.
    But i like to listen to anime and try and listen to what words they are saying and try and write those words down later. But it does not learn very fast or something but it works for me

    Here's the link to the site:

    True! Guess mine is by playing online Japanese games lol, I played FFXI online when it was still only Japanese version. Then anime and songs not to forget the mangas, always want to buy those "raw" mangas, but just can't find them in my country ('з')

    Prior to any official instruction I got, I did try my best through anime at first. After awhile, I was able to recognize that the verb goes last and that to say "is not" or "negative" form tended to end in "masen" or "nai." I also recognized that there were many personal pronouns in the Japanese language. Like anata, anta, or omae/ome to say you; or watashi, atashi, ore, boku, ora as ways to refer to themselves. If you pay attention that closely, you notice a lot of things, but it doesn't really teach you how to use it, but it's a good way to understand the mechanics and structure.

    Lacus Clyne from Gundam SEED is also a good way to learn keigo, or formal Japanese language =D

    Then I got into high school and my school offered Japanese =D!!!

    Japanese is not an easy language to learn in the first instance and the initial thing you need to do is work out how far you want to learn it...

    I.e, do you just want to be able to speak it to some degree, or also read and write it, too? (Personally I think you can't really learn Japanese without learnng the alphabets, but I know some people do just learn it in romaji for communication and not reading/writing purposes.)

    Learning kana and Kanji is complicated and takes time. It takes kids in Japanese school their entire education system to fully learn Kanji, for example.

    Learning Japanese from a grammatical perspective is also very different from any European language. I speak French more or less and I studied Spanish and German both in school, but Japanese really doesn't work like any of those languages do. It isn't something that you can just pick up in a week.

    I disagree that you can't begin to learn Japanese without taking a class however if you are serious about it, you will need tuition at some point.

    In the meantime, this website is very helpful with absolute beginning Japanese.

    http://japanese.about.com/

    And I would advise, if you really are serious about learning, to follow a bit of advice my French teacher told us when I was taking my A Levels.

    If you help yourself, your brain will learn the language more quickly.

    If you listen to just a little bit of Japanese each day, you will tune your ear into it more. That's where the anime comes in. I've taken to buying drama cds also for the same reason. It's always better to work with something you enjoy rather than something that feels more like forced classes!

    You already speak two languages so your brain is obviously capable of coping with linguistics - that's a good start. But take it from someone studying it...it is not an easy language to just pick up without really being ready to go in for the long haul.

    Anyone able to help me here? I guess I realized this this year.

    I need help, and step by step instructions. You can't just hand me a paper with what to do and expect me to be able to do it, because I can't. It's like I have to be guided through things step by step. I suck like that... -_-;

    lots of schools probably have Jpanaese as a language. Even the community colleges and Jr. colleges in my area have them, and I'm kinda in the middle of no-where

    To be honest, I don't think you can learn Japanese without classes. I watched a lot of subbed anime before taking classes and didn't understand any of it until I started taking classes, after which time I started to pick up some more words from anime. I couldn't recognize any of the grammar or anything either. If you want to try learning it that way, you should get yourself a point from which to start, not from scratch.

    Also, places like this where you can speak Japanese and people will answer your questions if you have any and you can practise reading and writing (although not many people here other than myself write Hiragana) are really great. Considering I don't know anybody who speaks Japanese, I think this place has really helped me a lot in my studies.

    Please note:

    <b>Beware of online learning!</b>

    http://www.japanese-online.com/ seems like a good sight, but from what i've learned from college courses, some of the information seems a bit fishy.

    They fail to mention that most of the time, Watashi and Anata are omitted because of implied speaking. In some situations, it is even rude to say Anata. Even in the phrase: Anata wa Amerika-jin desu ka.

    Anata wa can be omitted because "ka" indicates a question, and I doubt you'll be asking someone if you yourself are american.

    You are able to learn japanese on your own. I spent a full year on my own teaching myself japanese (pretty vigerously). Then I decided to finally take college courses in the language. I had barely the knowledge that was taught in 101. Although I did know all of the hiragana and katakana, my grammar was horrible. I would not be anywhere near my experience now if I hadn't have taken college courses in Japanese.

    My favorite site which I sometimes contribute to is Tae Kim's grammar site, it's great for more casual things and has basic grammar as well!
