    I'm learning Japanese right now.

    i'm a beginners and right now I'm memorizing the Hiragana and Katakana. I would love a study partner online since I mostly spend most of my free time online. Anyone up for it?

    My Japanese learning stemmed from my love

    for anime and wanting to watch it without subtitles. The more I learned Japanese and the culture behind the language the more interested I became and the more I wanted to learn it. This never ending cycle is why I am learning Japanese. So far I am slightly competent in my...

    I Can Do It!

    I've got 3 CDs and 4 books to help me learn Japanese. I'm listening and reading them with an open and optimistic mind. I really hope I don't loose my will to learn and get lazy. I love the Japanese language so wish me luck!

    Watashi Wa Nihongo O Benkyou Shimasu!

    I started learning Japanese in college, took 2 semesters of it which was all that was offered. Now I do Rosetta Stone and I love it. Japanese to me is an easy language to learn and very fun. Very different than when I took French in high school. I can fluently read and write...

    I Love Kanji.

    A Chinese import, the kanj system has found its permanent home in the scripture system of Japan. I can't imagine learning japanese wthout kanji. It's a complex process as you have to remember many things, the strok order, the readings, the meanings and the compounds in which they...

    for several years now. I am very comfortable with basic grammar, but I still haven't built up a very large vocabulary, and I only know a handful of kanji.
