    There are too many japanese games out, and a lot of them I want to try out. But, I just don't know japanese. Is there a (free) website that teaches you to understand japanese.

    I mostly want to learn because all of these Japanese DS games like:

    Jump Super Stars
    Jump Ultimate
    Bleach DS
    Eyesheild 21
    Mahou Sensei Negima
    Black Cat
    NANA
    etc...

    And other games that are not anime like LoZ:PH. So I can play the game before the english version comes out. With understanding it [​IMG]

    Japense has got to be the 2nd hardest language to learn. Im thinking about taking night classes to learn it but i dnt know if ive got the attention span for it. Also its one of the few languages not derived from latin.

    Yeah, becuase your neurons pretty much get set in concrete. Better hope you got good karma so that you can be reborn as a Japanese local in your next life.

    speaking japanese is easier than reading it, but French for me is the other way around.

    www.japanesepod101.com offers free podcasts. Japanese aint that hard, and its far from the 2nd hardest language to learn. I had less trouble with japanese than with german.

    If you want a piece of advice, start watching some anime dude [​IMG] Honestly, watch anime that you like on a regular basis and if take some japanese classes if you can. You can go only to japanese classes, and you probably will learn japanese, but if you don't have some outside contact with the language, you will not understand the "cheap" language and japanese will still look as a foreign language to you. Honestly, my advice is Anime, japanese music and japanese classes. Try to combine them all three and give it time. [​IMG]

    japanese is not that hard to learn, i tried a few seconds of course XD
    but im always so busy....
    i hate learning languages but for some reason ive done; french(chose it in school), english(DUH! but not really since i didnt live in england till i was 14), dutch(because i lived in holland till i was 14), somali(thats my parents nationality), arabic(cuz im here now in egypt and i have to do islamic studies which apparently involve learning arabic), german(was forced to do extra courses so i could pass teh damn subject), latin/greek/whatever(if you wanted to do the absolute highest level of higher education in holland, our school required you to do a latin/greek class)

    urgh.....
    almost makes me not wana learn japanese

    but ill probably go back to england within a year, take a gapyear and maybe learn it then

    If you have a bachelor degree, apply to be a JET teacher (teach English in Japan, and get paid well) and take Japanese lessons in Japan. Before going, it's smart to study up on hiragana/katakana and some basic grammar. Also, follow the "Pimsleur Japanese" audio course, which is great for beginners. This is by far the easiest way, but it does require you to spend a year on it, and put some effort into finding Japanese classes in Japan.
