Hello from Portugal.
I've decided to learn Japanese on my own and came across this site, so, konichi wa, to all of you.
Obviously, I only know a loose word/expression or two so I'm starting from scratch.

I would love to hear suggestions as to what would be a good way to start learning here.

Right now my main concern is, should I start by learning Hiragana, ignoring the meaning for now and then move to grammar or the other way around?

Thanks in advance,

Yes. Don't worry about ANYTHING until you learn Hiragana and Katakana.

Once that's done, check out http://www.guidetojapanese.org. Actually, I guess you can check it out before you learn Hiragana, because it begins by teaching you Hiragana :D

Look up any words you don't know here, and as you go through the guide, you can ask questions on this forum to help further your studies.
