RE: Where would you go..

I would like to go back to Okinawa. I have hiked several pilgrim routes in Europe, so Mukades' 88 temple pilgrimage sounds great.

RE: Best Place for Kanji Flashcards

Easiest and cheapest way by far would be to make your own. You could make a document with a table that contained the kanji, the print the info for that kanji on the reverse. Just play with the layout a bit to get the right size for you.

RE: Japanese Learning Videos, Bit torrent, etc.

Not 100% sure on this, but basically after you finish reencoding the file, you can zip or rar it also, you open BT and go file -> generate torrent file. All that is left is to seed the file. In other words open your newly created .torrent. You don't need a tracker. You can then just distribute you ....

RE: Your Method Of Stuydying.

I use a combination of things. Pimsleur and the harrassment of the staff at the Japanese bookstore by my house(books-sanseido if I'm not mistake. I believe they also have a website) for conversation practice. I look through allot of the magazines to pick out words I know then try to figure out what ...

I purchased a legal DVD Almost a year ago in Thailand. Granted I'm sure the subtitles in the US release HAVE...

Personally not very well. But seriously you can take some clues based on the book binding and layout other than that the above post hit it right on the head.

RE: Which book?

Personally I would go for seperate books for each. I will not recommend any specific books as its a subjective thing. I will recommend that you supplement the books with some audio if you can. Even better would be to hang with some native speakers though. Books are good to learn from for most people...

While I'm glad that people are enjoying the movie, I don't think advicating piracy is cool. The guys who made the film deserve to get paid for their work.
