??????????? native language??????? lol

???????????????????

I just started studying Japanese this year. I'm looking for someone to converse with me so it stays fresh for the fall.

 

D: Actually I like teaching random facts about the lesson, too, (plus it also helps me retain the information!) so if anyone has any questions about the language, I could do that, too.

Re: ???!

Lots of motivation, repetition, and preferably a real class. I've learned that using internet sources aren't the best. They can be kind of confusing. Having a real Japanese person or non Japanese whose been trained in the language and has been to Japan is the best for explaining the little nuances and exceptions. Japanese is a very...hm. Well, let's just say that a lot of things are left out when spoken and you just have to infer from what has already been said to understand what is meant.

Plus with a classroom, you'll have more motivation to actually first memorize the hiragana and katakana charts and then kanji because you'll get quizzed on those a lot.

If you don't wanna take a class and want to learn on your own, maybe you should try with a buddy and get a textbook. I recommend Genki: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese and its workbook companion. If you can find them, get the audio CDs... Note: ...they're floating around on the internet. If you can't find them, Just send me a message and I'll see what I can do (:

Re: ???!

Yeah just start with memorizing hiragana first. It'll be the most useful set you learn. But don't slack off for katakana, 'cause there's a lot of that too. It helps when there's katakana for an english word in a sentence or sign 'cause it's easier to figure out what they're talking about >.>

And don't worry (= It's pretty easy

...at first
