    I have been learning Japanese for a few days now, but alas it's time to go back to work. But I have allot of free time in between passing medication, so I figured I might as well utilize it! I seem to remember there being something on the DS, or perhaps the GBA about learning Japanese - maybe it was homebrew?

    Anyone know about this or am I dreaming?

    I'm interesting in learning the spoken language, not Kanji (the written symbols) - though I want to learn them also.

    I don't think there are any games that teach a the basics of a language. Only games that teach kanji and are dictionaries, and they're in japanese. Would be great if the makers of rosetta stone made something for the DS lol.

    These are the available homebrew for learning japanese in the NDS:

    - DSLearnJ
    - ProjectJDS
    - Kana DS

    Mostly Kanji, but since you also want them...

    A couple of games are there for learning JP, but they are in JP themselves, I think:

    Game #405 : Kanji Sonomama - DS Rakubiki Jiten (J)
    Game #579 : Zaidan Houjin Nihon Kanji Nouryoku Kentei Kyoukai Kounin - KanKen DS (J)
