What is the best way for me to learn Japanese?

December 29, 2008 by admin · 6 Comments 

I would like to learn to speak, read and write Japanese and I’m wondering where I would start off.
I don’t want to pay huge amounts of money for software like Rosetta Stone but I’d be willing to pay some money for books and/or software.
I come from the UK so it has to be accessible to me and since I know no Japanese at the moment it has to be for a complete beginner.
And please no things for tourists, I’m looking to learn the language and not just some simple tourist-y phrases.

Everyone’s opinion sounds reasonable to me, but if I were you, I would start off with Ara├║jo’s idea. As Freelancer said, Japanese literature is extremely complicated. It’s actually that not hard to run into a Japanese adult that can’t write proper Japanese…

I was speaking to my old college mate who is now in Japan & studying Japanese, but we came to the conclusion that you might be able to master 2~3 different European languages by the time you master Japanese.

Jumping to the conclusion, learning how to speak is the best way to go. You would get sick of it if you start with learning how to read & write. In order to do that, it’s the best make a friend with a Japanese person who can kinda speak English.

I am really interested in learning japanese because i love manga and anime and it looks like a really cool language to learn but my dad says i should learn spanish instead because it’s more usefull but i hate spanish. What do you think i should do? And please don’t say whatever i want because that’s not the answer im looking for.

When deciding on a foreign language, ask yourself which one you're most interested in learning, NOT which is most useful. If you're not interested in learning it, it's unlikely you'll ever reach a reasonable competence in the language. Since you're really interested in Japanese, you can definitely become competent, despite the fact that it's know to be a lot more difficult for a native English speaker than Spanish is.

It certainly isn't a useless language, and could easily get you a job involving Japanese.
BTW, about 130 Million people speak Japanese.

It's true that you'll have to learn a completely new writing system with an incredible abundance of complex characters-but perseverance brings reward!

So just forget about what you're dad says and have fun learning and using Japanese!!!
And who knows…you may end up living in Japan one day! =)
