    Re: Teach me Japanese, please..

    i suggest picking up a copy of the program Rosetta Stone Japanese I and II this will probably be the fastest and easiest way for you to learn the language yourself.

    Re: Help with learning japanese

    I really like Tae Kim's guide to Japanese. It's helped me a lot (even though I still suck lol). Perhaps it'll help you too

    Re: Teach me Japanese, please..

    would njt or hirroshiban be mad at me if i suggested that they mentor you.. i dunn

    sersiouly its not hard to learn if you watch enough anime without subs and listen intently to the dialect and read some books and then listen even more.. you just pick up words slowly.. its just like how alot of people learn english they come to america watch bob barker or used to and bam they can speak fluent in 3 years or so
    How much heat can you take?

    Sabaku_chou, besides Rosetta Stone that _ATMA mentioned you could also try the software " Tell me More", that's another excellent language learning tool among Rosetta Stone, and if you could use the two of them, I'm sure your Japanese skills will become very good!

    Re: Help with learning japanese

    I'm sorry I have a question about something I'm having trouble understanding, I think my brain is just dead because I feel like I should get this but I just don't.

    I'm going to give an example. mo includes the vowel o. But when it's written in Hiragana it's written as mo-u <When prolonged.

    How do you know when it's a prolonged o or a u?

    Please help!

    (I probably didn't make any sense... I'm very sorry.)


    Nevermind I think I understand.

    Re: Help with learning japanese

    Well, there's the particle も and the adverb もう - two different words, I presume you're talking about the latter. -ou is pretty much always pronounced as a prolonged o, unless you're crossing word boundaries, or the -u is a verb ending.

    Re: Help with learning japanese

    I'm still learning Japanese myself, but heres a few things that i suggested to some other people on another site that have really helped me get along:

    http://www.guidetojapanese.org/index.html#contents - This website has alot of information on the Grammar of the Japanese Language, and a Kana table. This site is useful for trying to learn to put sentences in the correct context to make sense, something I recommend anyone trying to learn reads through.

    http://genki.japantimes.co.jp/self/self.en.html - This website has alot of useful things on it. One of the ones I've found and have been using, is a "Flash Card" type thing for Kana. It will display a Kana, and 3 possible meanings, and you have to choose the correct one of the 3. It also has various Kanji exercises, and Grammar and Vocabulary Exercises, another site I recommend for sharpening your skills.

    http://www.japanese-kanji.com/ - This website is a Kanji Flashcard Program written in Java. It tests your knowledge on 60 Kanji at a time, and you can choose the order of the Kanji. It has a few different ways of learning the Kanji, from displaying 1 Kanji and giving 5 possible readings, with you choosing the right one, or displaying 1 Reading, and choosing the correct Kanji that corresponds to it. It also has On-yumi and Kon-yumi tests, so you can learn to recognize Kanji by their Kana readings. Again, a great site to sharpen your skills on.

    And then, the last thing I recommend, is a program called "Wakan", which has MANY useful features, including a Kanji look-up too, with 6 different ways to look up Kanji, a Dictionary, and a Translation tool so that you can Paste Kanji and do an Auto-Translation. A great tool for beginners to use for Translations when you learn to use it effectively. Can be downloaded from here: http://wakan.manga.cz/

    Re: Help with learning japanese

    I found a really good dictionary actually at my Library, called "NTC's New Japanese - English Character Dictionary". I definitely recommend people getting it. Its got a few side lessons inside it for learning Stroke Count, Look-up Methods, and other things. Its a rather thick book, not a pocket book, but it still definitely helps out, especially if you wanna just sit down and read.
