I really want to learn Japanese, it would be good for buisness, but right now I don't have the money. Please help!

dont waste your money on rosetta. it's good, but livemocha.com is better, and it's free. check it out first, i swear by it.

    i've learned a LOT of japanese from watching subbed anime – some phrases and words are repeated a lot, and they're used conversationally. Ive learned Nani (what?) Mate (wait!) Arigato (thanks) and a lot more. Some phrases are Arigato gozaimasu (thank you so much), and Itadakimasu (thanks for the food). You even learn common suffixes (-san, -kun, -chan, etc).
    Some more modern anime are Ouran High School Host Club (be warned: mildly sexual content) and Chobits (be warned again: they talk about porn and stuff, but they never actually SHOW anything). Some other anime are FullMetal Alchemist, Naruto, and Bleach, but they stray out of the range of "normal" and into magical, action, or sci-fi areas that wouldn't actually help you conversationally.

    However, if you want to learn faster, you could ask a native speaker to help you, take a course at your local community center, or even download rosetta's stone as those above me said.

    whatever you do, try watching some movies in japanese with english subtitles.
    I watched a couple hours of english subbed anime and i suddenly realized that, with absolutely no previous knowledge, i could count to 5 in japanese and knew stuff like yes, no, thank you. it wouldn't help with writing at all though sorry.

    you can find free anime on the internet, this is limited, but it is a start: http://www.tailedfox.com/page-naruto-episode-1

    look around on the internet, you might get lucky and find japanese learning stuff for free
