I made this program today, mainly because I was bored. It is a random Japanese sentence generator. I have found it to be a fairly useful study tool. The program is java based so you might need to install Java. The program is a work in progress and only contains about 30 words. Clicking on the box wi...

RE: software

You can change it in kanjigold. There are 4 buttons on the middle right side. If you click the one with the kanji on it it will change the answers to hirigana and katakana. Of course, you need to know how to read them.

RE: My Story: A Funny True Story That Brought Me Here

So the whole reason that you are learning Japanese is to annoy some girls? See if you can find the pulsimur (sp?) serries you can get the first 8 lessons for about $20. In about a week you'll know about 20 phrases and their variations. Just enough to annoy people. BTW Grinko Gordo meens fat foreigner

What do you know now?
I know about half of Hirigana, some Kanji, about 20 words and some grammer. But, I'm thinking of just starting from scratch because I hardly remember the Hirigana::p

What to focus on.

Hey! I've been learning a bit a Japanese since last year but, now I'm planning on getting more serious about my studies. I want to study at least 1 hour a day. I would like some suggestions on how to spend the time. What should I focus on the most, lettering, grammar or vocabulary?
