RE: How do you learn Japanese? What's your tips?

RE: How do you learn Japanese? What's your tips?

It seems I have studied more methods of learning, than the language itself. I have the same ideas you do. Im always thinking once you started speaking in full paragraphs or longer phrases, just how hard its going to be to say it in your head in english. Then translate that to japanese to keep up wit...

Word List

Is there a website out there that gives you a word list? I have so many words that I want to use in sentences but dont know where to find them. Most English to Japanese translator sites dont work very well. I can type in 10 words and only get maybe 2 back as a word in Japanese. Anyone have any links...

RE: Why Are Newbies Learning The Freakin Kanji?!

RE: Why Are Newbies Learning The Freakin Kanji?!

Thanks :) I had heard that they mixed them together like that. I went to a Japanese site, I think it was mixi.jp. I noticed on there that it was all mixed up.

Why Are Newbies Learning The Freakin Kanji?!

Now I might be just being stupid im not really sure. Why learn the Kanji?! The japanese people themselves hardly use it Yet americans want to learn it?! Hiragana is what you mostly see.
