    Re: Japanese language learning.

    I always find that learning to read the hiragana and katakana first and memorizing them first. Later work on grammar then focus on vocabulary. Then again, this is just my opinion. Also, (I do not want to read the majority of this thread) kanji as part of japanese is probably the hardest assuming you have never been taught chinese.

    In time I will post the Katakana chart if I can find it, You will find that Katakana might be easier to learn than Hiragana.
    If you have a chinese background Katakana will become easier, else Hiragana and Katakana should be the same. Also the 1st page is Katakana, so I don't see the necessity to post a Katakana chart.

    That depends. If you're interested in just conversing, then go and learn how to speak first, and study books that use romaji. The first time I went to Japan (in '98, I was 8 at the time) I didn't know how to read OR write; I could only speak, and that was help enough. If I didn't know what things read I'd ask my host family.

    *stares blinking* Wow, I'm nowhere near that far. I'm just getting started and I am saving up for Rosetta Stone. Until then I am only picking up on words, I haven't attempted any sentences yet.

    Re: Japanese language learning.

    Heh, no worries, we all start off like that. Just words and no sentences. You can annoy people by just saying random words in Japanese off and on. Like, point to your plate at dinner and say, "sara" (plate). Or at a flower and say, "hana". It's good practice, but it irritates people.

    Re: Japanese language learning.

    I've noticed, my friends still look at me funny when I say "Konichiwa" instead of a normal greeting. My family just ignores me when I say "Ohioh" instead of morning. I don't mind though, as long as it brings me one step closer to speaking my "dream language", I just wish I started when I was a child.

    Re: Japanese language learning.

    (lol) yeah, I can't count how many times they ask me the question: "why do you want to learn Japanese?" Even if I tried to explain it to them they wouldn't understand. It's somewhat difficult for me though. I'm still saving $$$ for Rosetta Stone (which means I don't have any "real" learning materials) and I don't have any friends "in person" that are/or speak Japanese. My friend Canh speaks Vietnamese, but that is no help to me at all. All I can do is just do my best with what I do have...
