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?

http://www.renshuu.org

I haven't seen it mentioned before, but if it has sorry >_<.

Anyways, it's a really great site for those who are studying for the JLPT. It contains the vocab and Kanji lists divided up into several lessons that you can quiz yourself on. You can also quiz the entire vocab/character list for a set amount of time. If you have JFBP or Genki textbooks, it also has lists for that :D.

I am pretty sure this is illegal. I removed the links.

If you want the books you should support the authors by buying them.

I downloaded the free flashcards a while ago, but only started using them last month =3.
They're okay, but the do make some mistakes. Like, when using the participle は in speech, they say it's pronounced "ha", not "wa". Likewise with を, they tell you to pronounce it wo. Although some people do :?.
Basically, they make some mistakes, but they're good for learning things like animals and basic nouns =3

Has http://www.lingq.com/ been mentioned yet? It's a rather nice toy to use. You can make use of the content already available and also import your own content.

KOTONOHA

Although it's only a demonstration version, you might find it's useful.
(I think using it is much better than showing quantity of Google-hit result.)

Details of this project is here.

Actually, I first stumbled on this one, which I'm sure is on the main page somewhere, but I can't find it. And I really think it's worth a mention, so...

Thanks for the links guys. I generally just subscribe to a bunch of blogs and study through my Feedburner, but will check a few of these out.

It's kind of an SNS site, but has an interesting twist.
You post yes-no answers to questions and add a comment.
You can get practice figuring out what they're asking and
you can browse the comments of others to the question.
Anyway, good for practicing reading and writing in Japanese.

I don't know if this has been posted or not but Lang-8.com is a website where you make posts in your journal and have them corrected by native Japanese people. In return, you correct other Japanese journals. There are other languages other Japanese.

I advice you to try this Kanji course
http://beta.supermemo.net.pl/pages/course/courseOverview.smnet?action=goToCourse&courseId=10720.
It contains about 1000 kanji characters.

There is also katakana course, but it contains only basic characters:
