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

New unexpected learning tool.

I just sorta stumbled on this and thought I would share.

I have the google and merriam-webster toolbar. The Google toolbar has a translate function, and this nifty spellchecker for text boxes :)

The translator translates _from_ English to the language of my choice (Japanese).

It is pretty neat. Nearly everything I point at that is not a proper name gives me a tooltip of what the Japanese word would be. I'm not sure how useful people might find it, but it is pretty neat.

おもしろい, I'll probably download that later. If anyone wants to know where to download the google tool bar, you can find a link for it at http://www.google.com:)
1) Have decent proficiency in Japanese, enough to get around/talk/read/write.
2) Visit Japan for a week or so one summer.
