RE: how do you say cool in Japanese

I asked my Japanese girlfriend how to say "cool" and she in turn replied with "choku." Take it or leave it.

RE: Japanese - On and Kun

I have a question. I've recently learned Hirigana and Katakana and I'm on my way to learning Kanji, however, I tend to forget the characters if I don't constantly see them or write them. Does anyone have any tips on how to keep them in the old noggin? Some kid books or something. Anything?

Jon

RE: Advice on learning Kanji.

It really depends what you want. I got a kanji book thats got about 1000 of the most used kanji for like 20 bucks. Japanese programs like cd's with books and stuff range from 20-50 bucks. It just depends what you want really.

RE: Advice on learning Kanji.

Yeah, I started on the Hirigana first and I'm almost done with that. I use flash cards and I write what I know everyday. I live in Okinawa so, I always have something to read.
