The one, the only, the "Hey that's a useful site" Thread.

Have a textbook or grammar book that you find particularly helpful? What about a learning tip to share with others?

Hello! I am new to this forum, but i have two websites that i would like to recommend that i don't think have been mentioned yet.

1. http://wakan.manga.cz/ this site offers a free software that has many features. it has a dictionary (with both Japanese to English and vice versa), a word processor (with options for typing in just kana or with kanji), and a vocabulary builder which allows you to create organized vocabulary lists. The vocabulary builder also has sample sentences with the words in them. it also does the exact same things with the Chinese language.

2. http://www.timwerx.net/home/index.htm this is Tim Takamatsu's website. He offers many different things on his website, but in the language section, he gives very in depth lessons on the entire Japanese language. the verbs section is very useful.

I hope that someone will find these two sites helpful. :)

http://lang-8.com seems like a great site.

You make journal/blog entires (as you would on a site like livejournal, myspace, what have you), except in the language that you're studying, and there's a built-in way for people to offer corrections when they comment.

I've just started a Japanese-learning blog for intermediate to advanced learners of Japanese, and I figured this thread would be a good place for it. I plan on putting a lot of effort into making it interesting, educational, and accurate.

beforebreakfast.net: 日本語を朝飯前にするウェブサイト

My site isn't really for beginners. A good grasp of grammar, as well as hiragana, katakana, and basic kanji, is assumed. But I hope it'll help advanced learners to enrich their knowledge, and help intermediate learners to take their skills to the next level.

Sorry about the self-promotion, but this is a site from which I think that many members of the forums could benefit. I actually just discovered Tae Kim's <3 Yen tonight, and it appears that (completely coincidentally) the content and format of my site is quite similar to his. I highly recommend his Japanese blog for anyone here who hasn't seen it yet (it's listed in the OP of this very thread, in fact!).

A kind 姫 gave me a couple of useful links I'll pass on:

http://language.tiu.ac.jp/tools_e.html#input for an alternative to WWWJDIC Translate Words available in other languages. Also parses through a body of Japanese text and lists vocabulary by JLPT level.

http://hinoki.ryu.titech.ac.jp/index-e.php, or あすなろ, for another alternative to WWWJDIC Translate Words also available in other languages. Contains reading material with audio.

Some more easy reading

I just posted these in another thread, but I think they're worth a mention here as well. Some poetry links:
2001 waka
modern poets
Japanese poetry (Rin has soundfiles!)

Hey all.

Its been a while I been here but I been working on a site to help people learn Kana.

Basically how it works is you choose what characters you want to learn and then you will be quized on it. If you register for membership(membership is free) you will be able to view your progress through charts.

So check it out.
http://www.interactivejapanese.com/

P.S please note as the site is pretty new there maybe some bugs flying around so if you spot any please use the contact page on the site to email me so I can fix it.

Hopefully you will this my site is a "useful site" :D
If your looking to learn Hiragana and Katakana try out http://www.interactivejapanese.com/.

I use the "Hiragana Times" for daily reading practice. They e-mail you an easy page that has a really easy section for beginners, then the regular article in first hiragana only, then standard japanese, and finally in english.

Now, the only problem is I'm looking for a PDA dictionary that my PocketPC can use without an emulator....
