Suddenly there's Japanese lesson here?
Reminds me that I've neglected my Japanese for so long. I guess I've completely forgotten kana by now (unless the kana used for my name). I can only remember few kanji. I'm even not sure that I still remember all of hiragana. I'm limited to speaking a bit of basic Japanese. I already reached N3 and just because I neglected it, I'm sure my level has gone down now...
Gosh, and I still haven't continue my other languages lessons. This is what English has done to me. I learned Italian but all I can manage now is Italian-accented English.
Yeah, I checked it out for a bit, but seems like not really what I wanted. No, not Textfugu. Have you ever heard of JapanesePod101? It has podcasts, some kind of short textbook for each lesson, and kanji practice related to the lesson.

Playing the Assassins Creed games provides a ton of free practice in Italian-English.
I think I'd like to hear Norwegian.

I've heard about the podcast, own some seasons too, but I think Textfugu is better if you want to understand Japanese from the very basic.
Oh, and I mastered my Italian-English by watching all the episodes of The Sopranos within two weeks.
When I speak to someone I don't know, they usually ask me if I'm from Spain. I assume they do because of my looks and because Spain is the most "common" place someone with my looks would be from. Can't expect the average person to know that Nuno is a typical Portuguese name.
