RE: Why Are Newbies Learning The Freakin Kanji?!

Chris Hart wrote: You are right, uber_geekさん, it is best to learn kana first, then move to kanji. Just remember to study words, not just kanji. I'm going to try doing that this time around. It didn't happen in one day, but I used to be able to call forth all the readings and meanings of the JLPT 4 ...

RE: Anyone remember me?

This is pretty cool, thanks for the welcome back guys.

And Richvh, I remember I would just surf the net all day when I had that perfectly good textbook laying around. I'm going to follow it just like I follow my Spanish workbook.

Anyone remember me?

Hey guys, I used to post here a long time ago, I could never get my self to study, but I did have some kind of love for the language. Does anyone remember me? I never really had a constant avatar to go by. So, why am I back? Well, I miss speaking Japanese. I've been having all these dreams about Jap...

RE: Please Help

Thanks you guys, I guess I just have to immerse myself more, but there's still a problem. I can't stand my slow textbook, I guess I'll do it anyway, and the Japanese in videos goes over my head. Anyone want to suggest a link?

Please Help

In the 1 and a half years I've been " studying " , I haven't really made any progress. So I'm hear to ask your advice. I have only 3 more days of school before Christmas break, so I'm planning on getting back to Japanese. First off, I know I have the ability to learn another language. I'm an A and B...

RE: Pronouncing "Name" (the word name. Not a name)

Quick question:

えい is pronounced the same as ええ, right?

And how does one pronounce あいい?

RE: Hiragana

I found quizes where you matched the kana to the romaji to be most helpful. If you do those for a hour it'll help. Here's some links: http://www.genki-online.com/js/index.html (Hiragana and Katakana) http://www.thejapanesepage.com/readarticle.php?article_id=2 (Hiragana) http://www.thejapanesepage.co...

RE: Changing your name

I was x911 originally, then Kurisuchan, now I'm permanently Christian_. As far as keeping all my screen names the same goes, I try. Christian_ is taken most places, so I either use my gay email or a x911 Christian_ combination. I believe my blog is __Christian__ (I should actually use that, maybe I'...

RE: Order from The Japan Shop

I've ordered from Clayさん’s shop twice, each time the items came on time, and they were reasonably priced. He even stamped my order with a hello kitty stamp :D . Anyway, it would probably be better to PM or E-mail clayさん. All I can say is that I'm pretty sure he sends everything out ASAP.

Math

Well, today I was doing my Algebra homework and thought of a good idea. I know everyone uses arabic numerals now, (and I'm not a math junkie, I really don't like math) but would anyone be intrested in making up simple Algebra (Maybe just normal math?) questions using only Japanese characters? Then a...

RE: JLPT4 chat study group

I'll try to join too, but 8 am is a little early, I'll definately be in by 11 East US, I doubt anyone will be on by then though.
