    I was wondering what would be the best guide out there to learning Japanese? I've always been interested in the language and would love to learn to write and speak it. However, I have no idea where to start. I know there are guides, but I don't know what is rated the best. Can anyone tell me?


    Thanks!

    Try starting with this: 2783 - My Japanese Coach

    It has pronunciation, katakana, hiragana, a good starter vocabulary, and makes good use of the touch screen.

    Get the book called "Japanese for college students" and start with the basic vol.1, itìs probably the best book to learn japanese. Then you can practice online or on a exercise book you can find in your library (better if it's a student library)

    I dont think anyone would want to spend that much money and its sold in VOLUMES which adds up to a lot of money
