    unfortunately I have never really had anyone to speak it with since I left High School. So, I have lost the ability to speak it. I know this when I went to get some Natto last weekend and the woman had no idea what I was saying. When I wrote it down, she had no problem with it...too funny

    A good program for learning kanji is JQuickTrans (which i believe you can get from www.coolest.com) which has preloaded jouyou courses in kanji levels 1-12 (i think that's it) and they're in the order the japanese learn them. Another place to learn japanese (basic japanese, gramatics and kana, no kanji, however) is www.japanese-online.com ...16 lessons, should take about 3 months for a quick learner and less than a year for most people.

    Helps?

    I'm just starting my Japanese classes, and i'm happy to say that i'm catching on pretty quick. I can read and write Katakana and Hiragana (almost) fluently, which makes me feel warm and squishy inside.
    My classes are actually almost over and wether or not I will be able to continue them is as of now a mystery, so if anyone has any pointers or tips on keeping up my lessons, that'd be nifty!
    I was thinking about picking up some Japanese childrens books from this cute little bookstore that I found one day...

    Arigato Minasan!

    I want to go to JApan so badly!
    I really hope that I can get this whole language thing down, i'm not exactly confident, i'm constantly confusing myself.
    Adventually i'm sure i'll meet my goal! Maybe?

    Something funny:
    I studied Japanese for quite awhile, and I've even lived in Japan before, but I'm always being knocked back into place.
    Today I was working at my desk and my boss stopped by to talk. Since my Japanese is better than his English, I gave him the go to talk in Nihongo to save time... bad idea
    Have you ever heard a soft-spoken, middle-aged, alcoholic Japanese man with a horrible countryside accent try to explain an insurance policy in about 30 seconds? I didn't know whether to laugh or cry...

    I've been trying to learn japanese for about 2 or 3 weeks i think and I've got greetings and basic conversation down pretty well, although if a native japanese person were to say even the words i know really fast i would probably have to think about what they said for a second and then reply since i havent mastered it completely, i havent really tried to learn hiragana or katakana yet but i know a couple letters, i suppose i should try to take a class or something.. but in my school there is no japanese class >_< and i dont know where to begin trying to find a japanese class or tutor or something.. i dont know where on the poll i should be , can anyone tell me ?

    Hey there Hidden_Wisdom!
    I'm not sure what stores you have available to you, or anything like that...so i'll suggest something that's fairly easy to find and works really well for learning on your own!
    I recommend a little book called "Japanese in 10 minutes a day"
    If you remain faithful to your studies then it works really well. I picked it up myself, but i'm not to good at being responsible without motivation so I had to hunt out a class....
    If you search there are a few sites out there that are really useful as well. I'm um...not quites sure where they are, but if you search on google, i'm sure you'll find them in no time, they're fairly popular.
    Anyways, I hope that I could be of some help! If you need me to look around, i'll be more than happy to, i've no life which means plenty of free time, and i'd be glad to help you out! Meheh, please keep in mind that i'm fairly new at this as well though.

    Good luck!

    Hah! It's no problem!
    I'm really glad I could help though, i've got the same dream. I"m still not quite sure why i'm trying to hard to learn Japanese, but when I decide to do something I really go for it and i'm glad to meet someone who's also really interested in learning the language. It's not that i'm on my own, but everyone knows so much more then I do -.-
    Most people aren't very charitable either.
    Well anyways, i'm really glad you were able to find it and I really hope it helps. The book's a really good first step, if only I had actually had the patience to use it! ^.^

    Good luck!
