Looking to learn Japanese(日本語)


I've been pertty good at finding kana sysmbols, stroke order, and pronucation. I can't seem to find any vocabulary sites that are not travel Japanese.

Kanji is even harder to find printable stroke order pages. Yes I know there are quicktime movies that show how but that ain't very good away from the computer.

For video theres decent amount on tv.

So in short. Is there someone that can help me with 日本語?

Re: Looking to learn Japanese(日本語)


If you're looking for practice pages with stroke order diagrams, you might be able to find them in the educational sections of Chinese and Japanese bookstores. As you wrote, I don't recall having seen these on-line.

For non-travel vocabulary, there are also a number of sites listing Japanese terms and phrases used in animé. emoticon For example, see Reiko-chan's Japanese for Anime Lovers There's also the NHK World Japanese Lessons web site, but I don't know if those are travel-focused.

There also used to be a fantastic site with a pretty comprehensive list of Japanese particles (including many uncommon ones). Sadly, I didn't bookmark it and have been unable to find it for several months.

You're much, much better off getting this dictionary. You don't seriously expect to find a site with stroke orders for 2,000+ characters, do you? Image

And not to spam my "Learning Japanese" site again, but I collected lots of links that are worth looking at.

Re: Looking to learn Japanese(日本語)


If you think that translations from English to Japanese, or vice versa, might help you learn a little better, then I recommend this site.

http://www.systransoft.com

It's a pretty good site in that it will translate some webpages and sentences for you. I hope this helps.

Re: Looking to learn Japanese(日本語)


I know quite a lot of Japanese too, but am still learning. And welcome to the board!!

If you want a cumulative course that you will be remember, I seriously recommend getting some good kanji book from your local Barnes & Noble or Borders. In the language section, they have some practice workbooks that teach Kana and Kanji/

Re: Looking to learn Japanese(日本語)


From the sound of it all, learning Japanese online is like climing mt Fuji in a t-shirt and shorts.

Could you guys recomend a frew titles so I can use the libary and still not have to dish out $$.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Now I know why i'm not too fond of romaji its just like english. Confusing and hard to read. Thats why I just stick to reading アメリカ語(American).

Well, there's always "Teach Yourself: Beginner's Japanese" or "Teach Yourself: Japanese". I reccommend speaking before writing.

I think I found it! I believe this was the site explaining many Japanese particles that I remembered.
