    I'm 14 and I have decided to start learning. I can say a few phrases I am learning from Pimsleur (I am at lesson 2) and I am learning hiragana and katakana from computer programs also while writing them on paper. Kanji will start shortly but I am really not rushing myself.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    your new nihongo sensei

    i can teach.

    if you want to talk email me, K?
    i have only been studying for about 8 months and i can say almost any simple sentance and i have a large vocabulary.
    im teaching to others at my school here because no body here is sertified to teach japanese.
    i teach for free and for fun.
    and as someone said earlyer it is the best if you start thinking in japanese as much as possible. try to make it a habit that when you dont understand something think "Nani" not "what". if you start doing that sort of thing it will stick with you better.
    oh look at me im going on and on again, jibber jabber
    i guess i will probably talk to you later

    Konichiwa.

    Watashi wa nihongo no gakusei desu. Rainen kara benkyou o shimashita.

    Chiizu o nomimasu. Watashi wa hon desu. kyou wa Inu to neko o furimashita.

    And that's about the extent of my Japanese. It's hard to write in roomaji! I've been studying for about five months, going over my vocabulary and kana.

    I've long been a fan of all things japanese (especially haiku, anime, women, and shinto), and have tried learning the language before. I just found your forum, and I'm liking it so far (everyone seems polite, &etc...)

    I long to learn to write haiku in japanese, as well as study japanese etymology.

    I just joined. I got the website from my Japanese professor. I think it really cool though. I'm in my fourth year of Japanese. It's really tough but I enjoy it! I would like to be fluent....but I think I'm a long way from that. I hope to make lots of friends here....especially from Japan.

    Ive studied at high school which was very... well not study, but i went to japan last year for 11months which really kicked the level up. Attempted the lvl2 ability test in dec but still no result... I hope i passed!!

    Kanji is my biggest problem, not just that i had 1000 to remember also had the readings and words you can make with them too... arrgh >_<

    My tip: learn hiragana and katakana reeeeeeal good before kanji, get grammer not vocab. Once you know the grammer vocab falls into place with no problem. (Did about 100 words a week once id understood grammar)

    Yeah...Kanji is really hard.....that's my biggest problem too. You're right living in Japan really helps.....I didn't really start picking it up until I went to school over there. I was there last year as well. What part of Japan were you in? I lived in Hakusan. I was an exchange student at Toyo University. I'm going back this summer to work for a year as an English teacher in Hokkaido. ‚à‚¿‚ë‚ñAŠy‚µ‚Ý‚æB

    I'm lower intermediate. Should pass JLPT4 without problems, going for JLPT3 right away in December (still lots of time to study...)
    For memorizing Kanji I learn japanese songs and poems by heart and translate them. I think it helps, especially the songs - with the melody you easily see the words/kanji in your inner eye.
    Okay, it doesn't help for writing them, but with the help of the pc you don't need to write them yourself anyway.

    kanji is pretty easy for me (the writing part, because im a chinese), but kanji is written in traditional chinese, which is a little more difficult to write/remember than the simplified version.

    anyway, when it comes to pronouncing kanji in Japanese, i have no idea how to do it. so yeah, its tough.

    I'm still very much a beginner. My hiragana recognition is about 85% accurate. Katakana next . Volcabulary very small at the moment. Thought it would be a good idea to get the kana's under my belt before tackeling the rest.

    Red face So far...

    Looking at the polls, most people are either high beginner/low intermediate, or know a few kanas but still beginner, or know a greeting or two. Interesting...
