I haven't exactly learnt Japanese properly but I highly recommend (if you can get it) "Kana can Be Easy" its the best book I've seen and thats how I learnt my hiragana. The book uses pictures to shape the hirgana and katakana (haven't fully learnt it)

for me i have been banging around a lot of stuffs... rosetta stone was to my disappointment a big un-bonus for japanese learning.. i had bought rocket language long ago... (and it cost me $500++ for premium WTF! ) but havent been touching it for a while... planning to go back to rocket language and see how is it... but for me, i think it would be better if you have a native japanese teacher teaching you because that way your mistakes gets cleared up faster than when you make mistakes during self-study...

Not really, I know of a lot of good places to learn Japanese in Singapore. You just gotta search around a bit. I take classes every Saturday for 3 hours with a native Japanese teacher and only about 8-10 people in the class. You learn a lot in the 3 hours and the price is reasonable. There are many other schools around the island.

I have been using the "Human Japanese" software to start learning Japanese.

http://www.humanjapanese.com/home.html

It is available across multiple platforms (from i -products to android to windows to mac) and you can try it for free to see if you think it would be helpful to you. I have been able to learn (for the most part) hiragana and katakana, a few introductory phrases ("My name is ..., How are you?, etc...), and I'm only on chapter nine of the program. It consists of 40 chapters, but several of those are not language lessons but geography/cultural lessons about Japan.

I recommend at least trying the free versions and seeing what you think.

I attended a class for basic and intermediate level two years ago and the text book there was Shin Nihon No Kiso I and II. Now I'm thinking about reviewing it. I will try "Minna no nihongo". Thanks for the link. :D

Try renshuu.org for testing yourself depending on how much you know. I also used Tae Kim's, and I started immersing myself in Japanese media. So a large percentage of what I watch and listen to is in Japanese. You'll be surprised at how much it helps.

I'm a linguistics and japanese major, on my second year now. We're using the Genki book in our class. It's pretty easy to learn in that book. It also has audio and it's interactive. :-D

Hey guys if u guys wanna learn japanese u guys should check this website out http://www.ispeakjapanese.net/ . personally i think this website is good if u wan to learn more about the culture. in this website they vlog about things in japan but sadly there not so active anymore. but they do have another website (same people) called www.speekit.com . In this website have lessons but u have to pay 39$ USD (i havent try it yet but i think its gd and i like the way they vlog about things a japan in their previous website( the 1st one) .

Oh, and in the 1st website, they have a free 5 day course on learning survival japanese phrases ( i tried it and it was good but it is only very useful if your going to japan)

So, i guess u guys can check it out?? Personally i think they give the cheapest japanese lessons online which is 39$USD only but if you think its too much for you then i guess you guys can hit hard on the books??

No offence to everyone who reads this but i personally think that it is impossible to actually learn japanese from the books..... The thing is, if your going to learn from books, i'm quite sure that u cant really communicate with japanese since they speak so fast... Anyways good luck on learning

That depends on what type of learner you are... Some learns better by reading/watching, some by listening and looking at the reference while some by writing it.. For me, im more of a writing learner type.. Plus, having knowledge of Chinese helps a little in understanding the kanji of Japanese language(and the construction of the sentence)... I would say writing Japanese isnt the hardest... The hardest would be to understand the usage of the particles such as と、は、手も、でも、へ、を、ね、よ、わ、かな、い, etc.

がんばって!がんばる!(Good luck! Persevere!)

Minna no Nihonggo is a good book. But you can try using Genki as well. It is much more easier to use.. IMO

Hi, just wanna share my experience. The hardest part for me while learning Japanese is kanji and particle..There's so much kanji, I couldn't memorize them easily.. (i'm still noob on it..)
My sensei-tachi gave us only two weeks to memorize katakana & hiragana, cause our handbook had no romaji on it. We use Nihongo Shoho, Dokkai, Nihongo Chukyuu 1 and 2 as our handbook..Minna No Nihongo is a good book too! ..As Hiruma said, actually it's not so hard to learn how to write Japanese letters, and I felt that too..(but I guess it'd be different for each person..)..
Well, basically I would like to say don't give up learning Japanese! The more we share, the more we learned..
Here's something, I made it myself. Hope it helps a bit.
