View topic - Hi! Bonjour!
I was looking at the opportunity to maybe learn Japanese, and I stumbled across this website. I want to start learning Japanese to learn something new, diversify what I am learning as I don't have and won't have any english classes anymore since I am done with it in college(Finished my first year, thank *insert random divinity here*, I was graded as one of the highest in the english selection scores, yet I learned absolutely nothing from this so-called "superior" english class, in fact, I haven't been learning anything english-wise in english classes because it was so dumbed down under the level I was already), and also because it's one of the things I've been wanting to do for a while, since I'm rather interested in Japanese culture(And also in mangas and video games, of course, what did you expect?). This will be one of the biggest open-ended endeavors I will embark on(Since I am usually used to do stuff for set objectives, like exams and grades, AKA things that can bring consequences), so any advice on self-discipline would be welcome.
I've started my attempt at trying to learn Hiragana, I'm not very far in, if there's any other advice on that, it would be welcome too. I also left my contact info in my profile if anyone is interesting in talking to me.

Glad you're here and hope you enjoy learning Japanese! As for tips regarding hiragana (and katakana), I'm finding flashcards (both paper and electronic) to be very helpful. I also found writing them helpful, especially using an app which lets me finger-write kana on my IPod.
Good luck! Seems you have an aptitude for language, so I'm sure you'll do well!
