    I've been in the process

    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.

    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?

    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!

    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...

    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...
